Stilettos and Vegas baby!
I think we all need a little break, don’t you? So I’m going to shake things up a bit by posting about my recent trip to Las Vegas. Where else can you see Venice, Paris, New York and ancient Egypt all in one day? Vegas baby! The city made famous for nightlife, guilt-free gambling, and star-studded shows. I first visited Vegas a few years ago and had the time of my life, each time after just gets better and better. Here’s a secret about Las Vegas that not many people know: This is a woman’s town. My girlfriends and I know this, and that’s the reason why Las Vegas is our choice for a getaway.
There are lots of ways to plan a Vegas getaway, but there are a few tips that every group of girls should know. Here’s how to take a trip to the next level.
The Best Group
First of all, be careful, who you invite. Bring your closest friends – you’re going to be making incredible memories, and you don’t want them to miss out. But whatever you do, don’t invite the girl who had a recent breakup, the girl on an airtight budget, or the annoying girl who drives you crazy but you’re friends with anyway. You know the type. Don’t invite her just to be nice. Think she’s bad at home? She’ll be worse in Vegas. Stick with three to five of your best drama-free girlfriends. Trust me.
Christina and I caught the first flight out of Atlanta in the morning, so we arrived in Charlotte early to meet Sherri and be on our way to Sin City! Sherri’s plane outfit is SO chic!!! From the moment our plane touches down in Sin City, we’re ready to go, dressed up and primped, bypassing the long cab line in favor of our limo. Sipping champagne, as we gaze at the bright lights and crowds.
Set up Shop
A group of fabulous girls deserves the hotel of a lifetime – and Vegas hotels are not lacking in fabulosity. Your hotel’s amenities and location will affect the tone of your entire trip, so choose wisely.
Here are some of the most glamorous and luxurious hotels I’ve stayed in! Fabulousness could not be denied. Each hotel has its own theme to explore. Though we could have easily stayed in the room all day drinking, ordering room service enjoying the steam room (oh wait, we did do those things….) we had places to go. The activities we did well deserves a post of it’s own, but here’s a little hint: Get VIP access if your group of girls are gorgeous, you’ll have no problem. If your group of girls at least has lady parts, you’ll still be totally fine. The Vegas Strip is an experience in itself, althought we had the very best concierge, Ceaser he’s flippin’ awesome!
Make the Scene
Before we knew it, it was nighttime — when Vegas really comes alive. After a champagne-and-vodka-fueled primping session, we were ready for dinner. We decided to have dinner at STK and WOW I was impressed! This place has a great relaxing feel so relaxing I retired to our room while my friends decided to join the nightlife scene which was elevated to a whole new level at Marquee Nightclub.
I’d love to tell you all about the music and the scene here, but I learned a hard lesson this trip. You know that whole saying about “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas?” I think what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas because PEOPLE CAN’T REMEMBER.
Or maybe that’s just me. But regardless of the fuzzy bits, I was out on the town in Las Vegas — I know I had a good time!
If you ever dreamed of swinging on a Chandelier or sitting on one perhaps, this bar/lounge at the Cosmopolitan might get you close to satisfying that dazzlingly urge. The Marquee Dayclub pool is located at the Cosmopolitan with incredible views of the strip we sat in the infinity pools while drinking mojitos taking in the wonder of this poolside paradise. Marquee Dayclub extends the energy and excitement.
Dicks Last Resort- though the food was nothing impressive the atmosphere is really fun! We loved the experience. I even got to go home with a hat.
An all girls trip might mean a girl-targeted show like Thunder From Down Under. This famous show is a lot funnier than it is sexy, if those shows freak you out as they do not me, you might be better off with Cirque du Soleil’s
The most eye-catching attraction at the Bellagio, is the signature supersized jumping fountain. ‘u no that’s a bit spactacular?’
From the moment you walk through the doors of Caesars Palace, you’ll understand why this luxury hotel sets the standard for opulent details, impeccable service and lavish accommodations.
Ceasars is simply magnificent and Playing Blackjack, What is the probability that you win? Well… Some girls Have All The Luck, Some Girls (Like my friend Sherri) can play blackjack, and win!
By the time your Vegas getaway is winding down from under some sort of hypnotic spell, your body will be fatigued from a toxic combination of casino smoke, alcohol and lack of sleep. A day at the spa is the perfect way to recover – not to mention laugh and gossip about the past few days with your girls!
It is to the benefit of society that there is no video footage of this event.
That’s the thing about Vegas – it’s one addictive destination. And each trip is better than the last continuing to charm me and never get boring. I admit, 3-4 days are all I can handle of this glitzy, loud, adrenaline pumping city and I’m read to go relax at home with my hubby.
