My boyfriend Robert & I took a weekend trip to Las Vegas for my 27th (AHHH WHAT) birthday 2 weeks ago! It was filled with ups and downs (mostly due to travel issues) but we had a damn good time enjoying some delicious and decadent food, going to XS nightclub and dancing and drinking and just taking in all the lights, sights and people.
We stayed at the SLS which was super hip and fun, my first time staying in a non-chain hotel if you can believe it! The steak and mushrooms and seared ahi tataki with yuzu salsa at Katsuya were AMAZING. Melt in your mouth steak, so good. Also enjoyed plenty of cocktails, dairy free GF macaron ice cream sandwiches at Perfect Scoop, El Buen pastor Mexican food, french style steak frites at Mon Ami Gabi and a view of the Bellagio fountain (and a lady from the midwest singing sad 90s karaoke), loved the drinks and amazing decor and whimsy of Park on Fremont. Also ran into my good friend Trenton and his girlfriend who were on vacay too!
The best part of our trip was definitely the Neon Museum / Neon Boneyard tour. It was sold out last year so we made it a point to go this time. I had SUCH a good time learning about the retired neon signs and the history of Vegas. Manny our guide was such a sweetheart, really enjoyed his anecdotes and fun personality.
Definitely going back next year and seeing the Magic Mike show! LOL
Spent a fantastic day with my last model, miss Stephanie Lazaro! I had admired her awesome modeling skills online for a year and we finally made a shoot happen. This girl has lingerie GALORE! I asked her to bring a couple outfits to shoot in and she literally brought two suitcases packed with pretty lingerie and clothes. So jealous of her collection!
Stephanie is super sweet. After we shoot all the lingerie looks at my apartment, I introduced her to Volunteer Park and we had a ton of fun walking around the park on a gorgeous Seattle day shooting some fashion and lifestyle images by the arboretum.
