vegas, baby.

2 Aug

My apologies for the short hiatus in posts – I was busy doing really productive things (like partying, hanging out at pool parties, and spending time with some awesome people) in Las Vegas. My friends and I flew in from all over the state, and we met up at the Palazzo. It goes without saying the weekend was ridiculously fun – highlights include tripping as I entered XS (the club at Encore), spending some quality time at the Encore Beach Club enjoying the hours of incessant house music, and making it to the self-proclaimed “hottest club in Vegas” (Marquee at the Cosmopolitan). Inside jokes and new obsessions were added to my repertoire, and if it’s possible I might actually be “homesick” for Vegas. What a joke.

Since I’ve been back, I’ve officially moved into my new apartment! I went for my first run today and am stoked to get to know the city inside and out. In the meantime, here’s some Vegas highlights…

You’ll get the full effect of Marquee if you listen to this. On repeat.

my friend Brian and I at The Cosmopolitan.

view of The Encore outside the beach club. epic.

Alia (remember her from Madrid?) and I being jokes.

fist-pumping with some guidos i know.

encore beach club. a house music lover's nirvana.

orange is so the new pink!

What should I do the NEXT time (hopefully soon) I go to Vegas?? What’s your favorite thing to do there?

P.S. Not like I’m counting…but…TWO days til Jersey Shore Season 4 premiere. Don’t even PRETEND to think that’s embarrassing.

    Well… Vegas is on my list too. I know, I know, you have been to every place that I haven’t 🙂 Thanks for showing me what I have to look forward to… from the Spanish to the Vegas! Looks like you had a blast!

      It’s definitely harder for you to get there! It’s just a 40 minute flight from LA – thank goodness haha! You will love it when you go! 🙂
