One of my most memorable holidays was when I and my family spent two weeks in America; travelling from California, through San Diego and finishing in Las Vegas. It was a holiday which I will always remember because it was an unforgettable experience seeing the Grand Canyon, walking along Venice beach and most of all seeing the staggering and sophisticated Las Vegas. When I turn 21 in three years’ time (that scares me) my dream present would be to have the opportunity to visit Las Vegas again.
If I was ever luck enough to visit again, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas would be a fabulous place to stay. It is a cutting-edge, modern and stylish resort with an elegant atmosphere, wish I guarantee will make anyone feel a million dollars. Apart from lounging around, attempting to get a tan, at the three tranquil swimming pools, I would plan to visit everything The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has to offer.
After having spent a couple of hours by the pool, I would probably begin to feel peckish and The Henry sounds like the perfect place for brunch. The Henry is a new cuisine which is a reinterpretation of well-known, tasty dishes and drinks. I would start my brunch of with a healthy fresh start that would give me energy for the rest of my day. The Morning Boost Berry Smoothe sounds brilliant; it contains mixed seasonal berries, vanilla bean yogurt and honey (just writing this is making my taste buds tinkle). After having been healthy I would probably then convince myself that it would be okay for me to order a Croissant sandwich; this in tails, scrambled egg, Canadian bacon and bacon cheddar cheese. While stuffing my face with delectable foods, I will be trying to dine in style. I have put together rang of items from the high street shop, River Island to create a simplistic but effective and graceful look. The skirt and top are perfect to wear after a morning by the pool. The simple pumps also make the outfit more suitable for the day, yet the little silver studs add a touch of rock n roll. While this look is only for an afternoon meal, I feel that it is acceptable to be extremely extravagant because I would be dining in Vegas.
After a wonderful shopping experience at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, I will unwind at the spa which is inspired by the desert’s peacefulness. Once fully pampered I will make my way to STK for my evening meal. STK is a steakhouse from Chef Stephen Hopcraft which has a ‘flirty, feminine take on the classic American Steakhouse’. I think that it is important to try foods from the countries you visit when on holiday. Even though America and England have many similarities in food, there are still obvious differences. STK sounds like the perfect place for an evening meal, before an exciting night out clubbing. Within the restaurant there is a lively bar scene and an electrifying mood created by the in-house DJ. STK is also a celebrity hotspot, so maybe if I am lucky; I would bump into Kim K?
Dressing for an evening meal is always hard, because personally I want to look good but I also want to eat until I feel as if I am going to explode. My result to this dilemma is to wear a stunning shift dress. I find that a shift dress is one of the most flattering shapes, especially for a meal as it hides the stuffed food belly. I have chosen this eye-catching dress from H&M; the shape of the dress looks causal but with the embellishment and striking ear rings, it makes the outfit ready for an evening of glamour.
I am not really a casino player, perhaps because I have no clue what’s going on. So after my meal, I would enjoy watching one of Las Vegas’ many entertaining shows. I would then probably spend hours getting ready for a memorable night in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ night club, The Marquee. The Marquee sounds amazing! It has a rooftop patio which overlooks the bright lights of Las Vegas and the best DJ’s from around the globe. The Marquee plays great house music but also offers the ‘Boom Box’ which is a smaller area and ‘The Library’ which is a discreet VIP hideaway (where I am sure Kim K would be enjoying herself).
I find it hard to decide what to wear out clubbing, because when it gets cold a jacket is usually needed but not necessarily indoors. This is one of the reasons I have chosen a suit from Topshop as my outfit for my night at The Marquee. I also feel that a smart suit is a striking and interesting statement, which is bound to make anyone stand out on the dance floor. To make the outfit more feminine I have teamed the suit with a cute fluffy clutch and silver shoes.
Creating this blog post has made me egger to get back to Las Vegas and experience the nightlife. Unfortunately this blog post has also made me want to spend more money on these fabulous outfits! Hope you enjoyed reading this and that you now also really want to take a trip to Vegas.
