Friday Faves and Vegas Recap
Earlier than the usual Friday Faves put up, I wished to share some Vegas adventures! We met up with Betsy and Jeremy (our San Diego besties and journey buddies) final weekend and had the very best time purchasing, playing, people-watching, and consuming all the ridiculous meals. It was our fifth journey to Vegas collectively (!) and we wished to attempt a brand new resort. We sometimes love the Venetian and Bellagio, however determined to remain on the Wynn and had been NOT dissatisfied. It’s positively our new place. I want I might have snapped a pic of our room with the panoramic view. Every little thing was just lately renovated, the rooms and property had been attractive, and the service and meals had been wonderful. Extremely advocate it when you’re planning a visit to Vegas anytime quickly.
Additionally wished to say right here that I booked the journey utilizing our AMEX platinum card, which has SO many advantages. We get free entry to a number of airport lounges (clutch when touring with the children) and in addition get resort credit score, late checkout, and room upgrades when out there. It’s by far my favourite bank card, particularly for lodges and journey.
Friday afternoon, the Pilot and I walked across the Strip and into the Caesar’s Boards retailers, then stopped for appetizers and iced tea at True Meals. It was that tough level of the day whenever you don’t need a full lunch to damage your dinner, however positively need somewhat snack to carry you over. True Meals was excellent! We had dinner reservations that evening on the Mirage, which is the place we met up with Betsy and Jeremy.
ALWAYS the seafood tower:
The Pilot and I shared a Wagyu steak, and in addition ordered Caesar salad, broccolini, and the very best onion rings to share with the desk. Every little thing was scrumptious and perfectly-cooked. After that, we had tickets to see LOVE, which is the Beatles-themed Cirque du Soliel present.
Cirque tends to be somewhat trippy, however I all the time recognize the immersive expertise and breathtaking performances. We’ve seen just a few Cirque du Soleil reveals and this was in all probability my favourite one! (I additionally love O on the Bellagio.) It additionally made me understand how a lot I am keen on Beatles music? Each single track that got here on, I believed, “Oh, I like this track.”
We known as it an earlier evening as a result of Betsy and I had been signed up for a Saturday am SOULCYCLE class. It was my first one and I completely want we had a studio right here in Tucson. I’ll positively hunt down extra lessons once we journey! The teacher J was so enjoyable and had a ton of vitality. I additionally loved the truth that SOULCYCLE isn’t targeted on screens or metrics; you push your self relying on the way you’re feeling and what you want from the exercise. The 45-minute class flew by and I used to be drenched in sweat afterwards.
After class, we grabbed breakfast from Urth Caffé, which was additionally conveniently situated within the resort. I had the gluten-free avocado toast with rooster sausage and a decaf almond milk latte:
We went again to the room to vary after which walked to the Paris resort for lunch at one in all our fave spots, Mon Ami Gabi. They’ve modified the menu (it’s a lot smaller now), however I had an superior salmon and kale salad.
After that, we parted methods. The boys went off to gamble and Betsy and I set off for purchasing at Dry Bar. We shopped for hours on the Discussion board Retailers and Vogue Present mall. Vegas has EVERYTHING.
After our purchasing celebration and our recent blowouts, we obtained prepared for dinner at RPM Italian, which opened just lately.
I’ve been desirous to attempt RPM (OG reader pals will keep in mind my lady crush on Giuliana Rancic) and it exceeded my expectations by a landslide. It’s the very best Italian meals we’ve had outdoors of Italy. Every little thing was beautifully-plated and SO flavorful with out being greasy or heavy. We had stuffed squash blossoms, caviar and burrata, recent pasta, cocktails, and I had the fish for my entree. We additionally loved an exquisite dessert (I can’t keep in mind what it was known as, but it surely was like a baked alaska that they flambéed desk facet, with a lot gusto.)
Dinner was AMAZING. Betsy and J went again to the resort to sit back and the Pilot and I spent the late evening exploring the strip, selecting up Milk Bar for the kiddos, and having fun with a cocktail. I can’t imagine how a lot I walked on Saturday! My watched died, however earlier than it did, I had already hit 25k steps!
Sunday morning was extra low-key. We simply had breakfast on the resort the our pals earlier than catching our flight again to Tucson. It was the right little recharge of a weekend, and I’m so completely satisfied we get to see this crew once more subsequent month! (plus all the children can hang around collectively!)

Vogue + magnificence:
Bought a brand new pair of Golden Goose sneakers in Vegas! I’ve been on the hunt for an ideal impartial, so right here’s the pair I selected. I by no means thought I’d be on board with the “pay additional for soiled sneakers” pattern, BUT I’ve worn my different GG pair consistently for 2 years. I observed the truth that they had been already *soiled* made me unafraid to put on them and truly take pleasure in them!
This blush! I forgot mine whereas we had been out of city, so I grabbed this one at Sephora after Betsy extremely beneficial it. It goes on very well with a magnificence blender and lasts all day.
Learn, watch, pay attention:
