Las Vegas Photo Diary



As you may know, I go to Las Vegas quite often with my friends, but I also go every year with my family around December/January. This time, I flew out about a week before them to spend New Year's Eve there with a few friends and we went to see Alesso at XS, a club at the Encore. We spent a few days there and then I went back to LA for the week, where I happened to come down with the flu and couldn't really do anything all week. By the time I went back to Vegas to meet my family, I was feeling a lot better but mostly just relaxed at our hotel, The Elara, which I'll have a separate post about soon. Then my friends took a spontaneous trip back to meet me and we spent the rest of the week going out and hanging out around Vegas. As much as I love being in Vegas, I think a total of about ten days there was a bit too much for me and my mental/physical health. I also don't really tend to take a lot of photos with my DLSR when I'm there, so here are some random snaps from the week. 



I've wanted to try Pressed Juicery forever and they just put one in the Aria, so I clearly went a bit crazy. They were selling them for either 3/$20 or 6/$29, so it was kind of a no brainer. My favorite ones were definitely the Vanilla Almond & Chocolate Almond but they were all amazing.


The view from the top of the Stratosphere, where we had dinner at Top of the World, a restaurant that actually spins (very slowly) as you eat so you get to see the complete view.


The lighting in the room was really good so of course I had to throw in some selfies. I recently cut my hair a lot shorter and I absolutely love it, it's so much easier!

See you soon!

  4. I went to Vegas a few years ago and loved it, but you're right, a few days is enough! I think I had about 5 days which was perfect! The spinning restaurant sounds incredible!

  23. I LOVE all of the photos from your Las Vegas photo-diary!!!
    I love your hair, your eye-makeup and the different colours of perfectly applied lipstick.
    The photo of you with the rainbow on your face is great - and you look beautiful!
    Believe it or not I've never been to Las Vegas even though my sister lives in Arizona.
    Neither one of us is much of a gambler, but looking at your photos makes me want to visit there anyway.
    Eating at the Stratosphere's Top of the World restaurant sounds like a very pleasant experience.
    I wonder if they have vegan entries?
    The juices from Pressed Juicery look yummy and healthy!
    That bedroom looks fabulous.
    I love all the beautiful views of Las Vegas in your photos.
    I've heard the shows are great but that Vegas can be expensive.
    I'll look forward to reading more about Las Vegas here.

    1. Thanks so much! I'm actually not a gambler at all either, you can have fun anyway though! I'm vegetarian and the restaurant had a pasta with vegetables which I'm not sure was entirely vegan but it was pretty much the only option for me. I don't really go see the shows either but if you do stuff like that it can get expensive!

  24. I miss Vegas! I've only been once- for New Years 2015, and of course that's the year it's cold as all heck! It was still really lovely- the views of the surrounding area were amazing. I would love to go back- but yes, ten days does seem a tad excessive!

    (p.s I love your hair!)

  28. Always love your Vegas posts! Did you get a chance to check out more of DTLV?

    Vegas has been on my shit-list this week, as MGM has decided to make people pay for parking & valet at all their properties. I've always thought one of the dope things about the city was the endless free parking! No more, smh. Damn you MGM!
