Las Vegas (Again)

cheese fries and shroom burger at shake shack las vegas

If you read my last travel post, you'll know that I recently went to LA and Las Vegas. Well, I just got back from another trip over there! I always get asked the question "why don't you just move there?" or people think I already live there in the first place, and my only answer is - I will eventually. At the moment I'm fine with just being at home and taking a lot of trips in between. It's nice to come back home after being away for a couple weeks and just relaxing and having that familiarity. It also makes it more exiting the next time I do leave.

Anyway, I flew into LA at night and my friends and I rented a car and drove to Vegas the next morning. Sometimes we fly, but the drive actually isn't too bad. This time I was there during the iHeartRadio music festival, which I didn't actually go to. I did the same thing last year - there are a lot of cool performers but I would prefer to just hang out and go see my favorite DJs at night. This time around I saw David Guetta, Zedd, RL Grime, and Dillon Francis, all at XS at the Encore (I literally don't go to any other clubs, it's the best one). Zedd and Dillon are two of my all time favorites, so it was cool that they played the same weekend.

During our days we hung out at the pool of our hotel, the Trump International, which we never really do but the weather was actually bearable for once and the view was beautiful. We went shopping and I bought some things at Topshop and Sephora for my upcoming London trip - let me know if you would want to see a little photo haul or anything before I go. We also finally made it back to Shake Shack, one of my favorite restaurants ever, where I drooled over some cheese fries and a mushroom burger. We actually ended up going a little too crazy and missed our flight back to LA the last morning and had to change it to a later one. What happens in Vegas, right? I have some photos from the LA portion of my trip coming up next to stay tuned for that!

  29. You are so lucky you got to stay on the Strip! When I went to Vegas two years ago we went on such short notice that we ended up two blocks away, which made it significantly harder to find out what there was to do on the Strip. Anyways, nice post! And thanks for visiting my blog! :)
