I absolutely love Britney Spears and had to make my way to Vegas to see her perform. I spent months planning the trip with my sisters and our close friend Anthony, only to find out she hurt her ankle once we landed in Vegas. Trying to stay positive, we checked into our hotel and made our way to La Salsa Cantina for lunch when we got the worst news ever: Britney's weekend shows were canceled </3 I was speechless and upset, but we clearly had no control of the situation. I wasn't going to let it ruin my trip, I worked hard for this vacation and was going to make the best of it. We did a lot of walking, hung out by the pool. went clubbing, and enjoyed ourselves. Below are some highlights from our trip :)
We spent our afternoons tanning and drinking by the pool. A UK pr company called Emerge Limited sent me three fab bikinis to review for Cliché Magazine which came just in time for my trip.
Instead of spending our Saturday evening watching the long anticipated Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight, we opted for a delicious dinner at chef Giada De Laurentiis's restaurant Giada. I ordered the lemon spaghetti and it was probably the best spaghetti I've ever had. The pasta tasted fresh and was the perfect consistency; it made me want to try to recreate it at home. The lemon cream sauce tasted refreshing with the succulent shrimp. Looking at the pictures of the food is making my mouth water now. I will definitely be returning here for a dinner when I'm in town again.
I ran into Terry Richardson at Starbucks before we went to Red Canyon. I'm a fan of his work and I didn't want to miss the opportunity of saying hello.
After out Starbucks stop, we rented a car from the Hertz stand at Harrah's and headed to Red Rock Canyon. The Canyons were amazingly stunning.
After spending hours walking and climbing the big rocks, it was time to fuel our bellies with some In-N-Out.
We had to be at the airport by 10pm that night, so we walked the Strip and did some last minute tourist exploring.
Overall, we had a great vacation. Since we didn't get to see Britney perform, we'll just have to make our way back to Sin City!
