I'm back and ready to party!!! I've had a fab couple of weeks off work, starting with a family holiday to Centerparcs at Longleat, and then a wonderful trip to the US with my man.
So, let's see what's been achieved shall we - like you don't already know... lol x
Well, my Plannerisms planner has totally fallen by the wayside at the moment as I use it to log food, exercise, cleaning etc, all of which has been completely ignored as far as routines go aver the last few weeks, but I will be pulling that one back into the fold shortly.
While I was at Centerparcs I went to the spa for an Elemis facial (amazing), and while I was there I had threading done on my eyebrows and upper lip as they apparently don't do waxing for these areas there... ouch!!! At least waxing is just a quick rip and it's done :-)
After Centerparcs Ben and I headed off to Vegas, arriving in the middle of a thunderstorm, flooded roads etc. We stayed at the Vdara hotel, and loved it - we had an amazing view of the Bellagio fountains from the huge window outside the door to our suite (we got upgraded - yay!!!). There is no casino at the Vdara, so it's not as manic as other hotels, but you can go into the others anyway - there is a short walkway that takes you straight from the Vdara to the Bellagio. When we woke up on our first morning there was no sign whatsoever of the rain the previous night - it was bone dry, purely because it's damn hot!!!
I'm not going to go through everything we did while we were there, but there are some amazing things to see and do in Vegas - many of the hotels are just beautiful inside (Venetian - wow!!!), there is great food (check out the Peppermill for breakfast - near The Riviera), and spectacular shows (we went to Mystere by Cirque du Soleil). We had a lot to do so didn't catch any others, but will definitely make a point of seeing more next time we go.
I'll let the photos say the rest as I cross items off my list:
|Go to Vegas - check|
|Get married - check|
|Have a manicure - check|
|Obviously there had to be a Filofax present to represent the rest of the family :-)|
