Vegas Survival Guide

I just returned from wonderful Las Vegas! The last time I visited Vegas was for my 21st birthday. Back then I was younger didn't require as much sleep. While I was visiting this time I learned a few things that I think everyone should. 

1. You have to drink water even when you're not thirsty!!  

Now wait!! Before you try and put a 12 pack of water in your suitcase just listen. People sell cold bottled water on the streets for $1.00 and some stores sell it for 65 cents. I would not go to your hotel gift shop to buy water or worry about bringing any from home. 

2. Over Pack!! 

Yes, I said OVER pack. I'm sure you're thinking I'm crazy right now but trust me I'm not. You are going to need at least two changes of clothes during the day and one outfit for clubs or restaurants at night. You also may spend more time by the pool then you would on a normal vacation so bring a few swim suits. My advice is pack two outfits for each day that you will be there then one outfit for every night. 

3. During the day screw the cute shoes!! 

I learned this the hard way. No matter how many times you go to Vegas you will at some point walk the strip and you are going to want shoes that are comfortable. Ladies it's Vegas the one place on earth where you can wear those super shiny 8" heels with your super tight "Freakem Dress". Save your feet the pain and wear some plain old sneakers during the day so you can wear you cute shoes at night.

You will be missed...
During college I would blast Amy Winehouse. She was truly a talented person and I will miss her music.

Back To Black 

Valerie!! I cannot tell you how many times I danced around my room to this song!!

Blushing: Exhibit A by NARS

I love NARS cosmetics but I tend to use mainly their blushes. 

I stopped by Sephora to pick up Exhibit A and when I saw it I was pretty much scared of it. I walked around Sephora for 30 minutes trying different color blushes but I still wasn't happy. I asked a make up artist to test the color on my skin and it turned out I loved the color!

It's a red/orange color. 

Looking at the color alone you would think it would go on extremely harsh but that wasn't the case at all. 
I love the way it looks. I think its a great summer color that adds warmth to my face!

Quick Tip: Lip Exfoliation

Here is a super simple tip to keep your lips nice a smooth. All you need is a toothbrush, olive oil, and sugar. 

Mix a bit of Olive Oil and Sugar together then dip the toothbrush in the mixture. 

Then rub the toothbrush on your lips. I do this for about 1 minute once a week; but after the first time you will feel the difference!!

Can I get some support?

Ok ladies, Lets talk bras!! 
Some may say I have been very blessed in the chest area of my body. However I find it extremely hard to find a great fitting push up bra. I recently took a trip to Victoria's Secret to solve my problem. Check out what I found!!! 

The Push-up Bra Incredible by Victoria's Secret 

Here is a before and after to compare. Please ignore the huge slice of pizza in my hand. 

I hope you guys can see the difference. This bra runs around 49 dollars and is totally worth the money if you are a D+ cup and struggling to find the perfect bra.
