I took a mini vacation to Las Vegas this past week to visit my family and relax. The bad news? I didn't win any jackpots. Want even more bad news? I came down with a vicious cold on the airplane, and spent much of my time sending my mom out for Nyquil and Matzo Ball soup (for some reason, Vegas casinos have the best delis). The good news though? For the most part, I got to do everything I had planned on, which included seeing The Phantom of the Opera at the Venetian, and dining at Wolfgang Puck's Postrio. Not only were the starters and main course delicious, but they gave me this awesome, full-sized graham cracker crust chocolate dessert for my birthday (pictured above). Definitely beats whatever free birthday treat you get at TGI Friday's!
On a beauty related note, I scoured nearly every Sephora and Ulta in Las Vegas and Henderson for an UD Naked palette, but to no avail (I found one in CA finally thought - more on that in another post). I also went to the new Lush store in the Mandalay Bay hotel, and it was an epic disappointment. Not only was it small, but they had no Halloween products in, and to top it off, the sales ladies were major stalkers. There were about 4 employees in a store that was no bigger than my first studio apartment, and when you managed to fend off one, another would come swooping in. Needless to say, I didn't purchase anything.
