A Little Break

May 30, 2013

Sometimes we just need a little break – and what’s better than an impromptu vacay?? So what does a girl do in Vegas when she doesn’t drink, gamble or party? Eat and Shop, of course. I’m pretty boring :-/

We stayed at the Cosmopolitan this time. I’ll post more photos from the hotel later, but I just wanted to show you snippets of the pretty room. Can someone tell me why room service (and everything else) in Vegas so expensive?? But that didn’t stop me from ordering these Spicy Crab Lettuce Cups twice – totally worth it.

We always make a stop at the Sugar Factory when we go to Vegas – one of my favorite spots. And yes, that french onion soup is just as good as it looks.

OK. Everyone has to try Max Brenner – Chocolate by the Bald Man. Especially if you love chocolate like me. They have chocolate everything, even pizza. Since this was breakfast and super early in the morning, I started off with this granola bowl. Amazing. To top that off, I had this delicious Chocolate Chai Tea. Amazing again.

My fiancé is a big fan of Gordon Ramsay, so we had to try his Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace. Best mac & cheese I’ve ever had, and according to him, best fish & chips he’s ever had. BUT let’s talk about dessert – this Sticky Toffee Pudding was A-H-M-A-Z-I-N-G! The waiter told us every Gordon Ramsay restaurant does their Sticky Toffee Pudding a different way, so now we’re on a mission to try every Gordon Ramsay Sticky Toffee Pudding. Has anyone tried it anywhere else?

I know I’m late, but I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. This is what I wore – some red (or a shade of red), white and blue. Thank you to my bestie for showing me this super cute J.Crew skirt.

I’m sure I just overwhelmed you all with food, but can you believe this isn’t even half of everything we ate. Yep, we’re fatties.

  • Chocho

    It sounds like a lot of fun!!

  • Jamie @ jforjamie.com

    You Memorial day impromptu getaway sounded amazing! That’s EXACTLY how I would do Vegas, nothing better than room service!

  • drinkcitra

    haha yay for eating and shopping! That’s the best :D
    Lovely pictures as always, Victoria!

  • Rhonda Mae

    Wow that was probably one of the best description/pictures post of Vegas I’ve seen. Lol seriously made me so excited for my next visit to try some of these places out!! I looovvee the Cosmo, it’s so chic. And I’m such a sucker for chocolate, that Sweets collage is killing me. Can’t wait to see more photos, Victoria!! I love it!! xoxo

  • Stephanie Lula

    What is a girl to do but eat and shop ;) Las Vegas would be nice, but it doesn’t seem to leave you with so many touristy type things to do, but it’s nice for a getaway. Can’t wait for the next photos :)

  • Victoria M.

    All that food looks so good. :)
    And I love your skirt! <3

  • Nnenna

    Oh my gosh- I love Vegas! I went on a trip with a few girlfriends a couple years ago and it was some of the most fun I’ve ever had.

    The Cosmopolitan is such a pretty hotel and it sounds like you had a wonderful time. I agree, everything is so expensive there, but it’s definitely a fun destination!

  • Elle

    Haha my parents have a house in vegas and people always think we love to gamble/party but really we just go for the shopping and eating (and an occasional show)! It’s the best!

    I’m DROOLING over the food in this post, especially that mac and cheese! I’m definitely trying that next time I’m there!

  • ashlyn williams

    wow, so jealous of your mini impromptu vacation . looks like you had a blast! & that sticky pudding whatever you call it looks amaze. N + I went to Vegas a couple years ago and it was soooo much fun. We rarely drank + didn’t gamble but maybe a alot machine or two. ha!

  • fizz

    Ahhh!! OMG your pictures are making me so super duper duper excited for my next Vegas trip. I haven’t been in over a year which is a pretty long time for me! I LOVE the Cosmo, it’s such a great girly hotel isn’t it? And Max Brenner! I’ve only been to the ones in Australia but loved it! Definitely need to make a stop at the Vegas one!

    Looks like you had such a lovely trip, but I must say I’m looking forward to your regular updates resuming! <3
