Waking Up In Vegas!

Last weekend, I finally turned 21! I was fortunate enough to spend the weekend with my family and best friends in Las Vegas. I had never been there before so I did not know what to expect. We stayed at The Cosmopolitan Hotel of Las Vegas and attended two shows, The Mentalist and Britney Spears, who I have loved ever since I was a little girl!

We arrived on Friday, October 27th and by the time we landed, we were so hungry. Thankfully, my friend got us reservations at Jaleo, which is now one of my favorite restaurants. After lunch, we went to Milk for dessert, got ready and headed out to see The Mentalist. I volunteered to go on stage and he actually picked me, which never happens to me. He was amazing! I told him it was my birthday and he ended up gifting me a USB with videos and his book on it. After the show, we went to Beauty and Essex for dinner. Everything this day ended up being inside our hotel, which was very convenient.

To the airport and lunch, I wore a Saks gray cashmere sweater, L’agence jeans with zippers on the side, off-white Chanel ballerina slippers, and my new Gucci purse, which was a birthday gift from my mom.

For The Mentalist and dinner, I wore a Hervé Léger dress, beige Valentino strappy heels, and my little black Chanel cross-body purse.

On Saturday, October 28th- my birthday, we went to brunch before going to the DryBar and getting out hair done. The salon in Vegas has a full bar inside- only in VEGAS! We walked around and then had lunch at Chica. Of course, I also had to gamble a little bit. In the evening, we went on a helicopter tour of the city. At night, we saw the Britney Spears’ show. I had so much fun! Since it was “halloweekend” a lot of her fans dressed up as Britney in her iconic music videos. During the day, I wore a navy bodysuit from Kittenish, L’agence jeans, my Gucci purse, and navy velvet Cole Haan sneakers, which were a birthday gift from my aunt.

At night, I wore a silver sequined dress from Express with silver Christian Dior heals and my black Chanel cross-body purse. Also, my mom bought be the cutest balloons and then accidentally popped the “2” for 21 😀

Sunday, October 30th was our last day in Vegas and I was so sad to leave. We woke up and had brunch at Whisk Spoon again, which was also inside the hotel. They had a huge buffet with delicious food. Some of us had different flights so we had to part ways. We finally had some time to walk around and enjoy the beautiful city. In the morning, I wore my L’agence jeans with a strapless top from Express, fuchsia Tory Burch flip flops and my Gucci bag. After 2 nights of wearing heels and doing so much walking, the only shoes I could wear were flip flops! For the airport, I changed into a Britney Spears t-shirt from the show and my pink Adidas slides.

One day, we drove by the famous “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign where we saw people adding flowers and pictures of those who were shot during the horrible shooting that recently occurred in the city. I am so happy that I was finally able to visit Vegas, it was always one of my dreams to come for my 21st birthday.
