Vegas Trip Rewind and Life Update

For my amazing husband’s 29th birthday I decided to surprise him with a trip to Vegas. It took 2 months to plan and it was one of the hardest secrets in my entire life to keep. I had his family take him out for his family birthday dinner and after when we got to the car I broke the news to him that we were actually going to the airport. His response… well I guess you will just have to watch the video at the bottom.

vegasssWe boarded at 11pm and arrived in Vegas at 12:15am. I booked us a room at the Flamingo Hotel. This is the same hotel that we went to for our honeymoon in 2017. We absolutely fell in love with the location, retro vibe, and some of the best black jack and craps tables. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a newly renovated suite that overlooked the strip.

The next morning when we were on our way to breakfast where we usually get a day pass to eat unlimited meals at 8 different Vegas buffets, we were stopped for a promotional deal where they would give us tickets to any show if we sat through an “info” meeting vegasssssabout timeshares. I really didn’t want to do it but free tickets were on the line, so we went for it. Never again. We got a free breakfast, $75 dinner voucher, and $100 in cash to tell this incredibly pushy salesman that we weren’t going to buy a time share. In my mind it so was not worth it.

The rest of the day we spent window shopping at the forum at Caesars Palace and let me just tell you, that place is so dangerously amazing. I could spend all day there. For dinner we went to a steak restaurant that was located in our hotel. I seriously can not brag on the Flamingo Hotel enough. If we wanted to we could literally never leave since it has everything you would every want. We learned how to play craps and had a blast at a table vegasssssswith many other Texans.

Before we knew it, the next day we were on our way back home with a little extra change in our pockets and full excitement to be moving into our new home.

We got all moved in and have been loving our new little place, city, friends, and taking a leap of faith. A lot of change has occurred within these last few weeks but we are enjoying it all. I haven’t felt this sure about where I am supposed to be in life since I married my incredible husband. God has been so faithful and loved us through it all. We know that we are here for a purpose.

My Stylist and Favorite Online Boutique

If you have been following me on my Instagram then you know that I LOVE Shop Stevie. Every time I visit her site I fall in love with so many items and have to end up putting half of them back because you know, self control.

My favorite thing about her shop is that there are constantly new items available for sale. I hate when I go to boutiques and I feel like they only come out with new items a few times every season. I want what is new and fresh! Her items sell out pretty quickly which is why I always buy through a stylist.

Everyone meet my Stylist, Liz Reeves. She is a Shop Stevie Rep and probably the cutest person on the planet! I shop through Liz because she has insider knowledge on when things will become available for sale, what size would be best for me (since I am mostly between sizes), and even helps me figure out where the heck my package is (jokes on me because the tracking number was in the confirmation email *palm to forehead*).

I don’t only shop through Liz because of her impeccable gift of putting together outfits, I shop through her because of her unwavering confidence she has in the brand and her way of understanding that clothing is so much more than what you wear, it is how it makes you feel.

With fall in full swing aren’t we all in search for those rich earth tones, ways to reinvent our style, and renewing our confidence through our everyday style? Check out Shop Stevie and be sure to work with a stylist like Liz for the best experience!

You’re Fired.

I posted a photo on my Instagram story with the caption being “I have been completely make up free for a week now because it is a lot cheaper if you would just love yourself”. No, I am not saying that if you wear make-up then you don’t love yourself or that you have some major insecurity. I love make up and for everyone who knows me, they know this to be true. Luckily I didn’t get any negative comments towards my post but it really got me thinking about makeup in the work place so I put out a poll on my personal Facebook page asking if you think makeup should be required or optional.
