About Me

My photo
Island girl & Vegas junkie. Sharing my obsession of Sin City. Off the strip, on the strip, dining, hotels, & fashion. No fancy schmancy camera (at least not yet) but I hope you enjoy my view of this wonderful playland in the dessert and some fillers here & there of my hermit lifestyle.

Excalibur Hotel & Casino

A little misfortunate delay with our flight back home landed us at the Excalibur Hotel & Casino. It's one of the older hotel's on the strip but a great place to bring the kids. We had a fun night and made a little money too.

Pizza and soup, always ono after a night of fun

Luv It Frozen Custard



Perfect on an August summer afternoon Luv It Frozen Custard is smooth, rich, creamy melt in your mouth old fashion frozen custard just as advertised. A gem in the downtown district.

CurbSide Cafe

The newest craze hitting the states including Vegas are Food Trucks. Here in the islands we call it lunch wagons. We found one food truck on this specific day via Twitter @CurbsideCafeLV. CurbSide Cafe. The special of the day was Tilapia taco's. Although I was too lame to try the taco's,the hubby & amp; brother in law  ordered it. By golly it was delish!! Never had Tilapia in my life. You know the stories that surround the Tilapia. Comes from dirty rivers blah, blah, blah... Maybe that's why it was so tasty!! HA, BTW I ordered the buffalo wings wrap. Don't forget to order the sweet potato fries.



Cafe Vetro at Aria for breakfast

Portuguese sausage breakfast on the menu.  I love Portuguese sausage but they seem to have very different flavors by brand. My local favorite is Hawaiian Brand hot Portuguese sausage. Anyway, the sausage was very tasty, reminds me of Zippy's Portuguese sauusage

Aria

One of the newest hotels we were so lucky to stay at this summer was Aria located at City Center. It was absolutely beautiful. Very spacious room.

Waking Up In Vegas by Deborah Lippmann & Minx




Two of my favorite nail accessories, Deborah Lippmann and Minx. Deborah Lippmann has come out with a color named Waking Up in Vegas this past spring. I paired this up with metallic silver zebra striped Minx.




Cafe Vetro @Aria

At Cafe Vetro the portions seems like it is made for sharing. I had the caesar salad and pea soup.
