Toasting to Girls Weekend in Vegas: Laguna Champagne Bar

So we’re still recuperating from our best Vegas trip yet, but as we resurface into the land of the living we had to share some of the details of our girls weekend. Thanks to the lovely folks at The Palazzo we were able to experience the best of the best, starting off with a celebratory toast to the weekend at the Laguna Champagne Bar. Centrally located on the casino floor, we were able to take in the sights and the sounds from the comfort of the lounge.

Since we “strategically” planned our trip to coincide with March Madness, we were able to take in some of the Thursday night games while we sipped our cocktails….speaking of which,  the bubbly concoctions were amazing. We love ourselves some bubbles, but these set the bar high for the weekend as they were fun and inventive – each of us was raving about our individual cocktails. If you go – you have to try the Flower Eclipse (elderflower goodness) or Art Nouveau (strawberry pureed sweetness). An added bonus? the array of olives and wasabi peanuts we snacked on while we sipped.

Loved it – great start to the weekend…

Jill and Mary - two of our favorites!

Vegas here we come!

In one week from today, we are hitting the strip with our best girlfriends for our annual trip to Las Vegas! It’s a weekend we look forward to all year and absolutely cannot wait.

We’re already giddy with the thought of cocktails, sunshine, late nights and blackjack and even more exciting are our accommodations, as The Palazzo resort has been kind enough to arrange a suite for us and with that we’ll be at the center of all the best parts of Vegas by staying there!

We’ve heard great things from one of the newest resorts to make a splash along the strip and can’t wait to dance the night away at LAVO, experience the pool scene and everything else we’ll soak up while in town. We’ll of course have a full review on The Palazzo for our w&w readers as we know how much you all love weekends in Vegas with your girlfriends as well!

Just the photos below have us wanting to jump from our desks and go home and pack! Looks amazing, right?!

We found heaven in New York: The Four Seasons

Amidst the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, there is a sanctuary of elegance and sophistication. Of class and contemporary design. And it’s name is the Four Seasons Hotel.

We were thrilled to combine the excitement of our New York Fashion Week fun with a night’s stay provided by the Four Seasons and loved experiencing their impressive hotel.

Our favorite part of our stay? The attention to detail. Nothing is overlooked by the staff of this hotel. Upon returning from having a delicious raspberry martini at The Bar (complete with a mini cocktail shaker, silver platter, fresh raspberry garnish and dried cherries!) we came back to our room to find the lights turned down, curtains drawn, the TV turned towards the bed, a mat put down to take our shoes off and slide into cozy slippers and our favorite part? The soft classical music that was playing. If we weren’t ready to hit the town to take in New York as much as possible during our long weekend, this room would have been amazing to crawl into bed or take a long bath in the incredible tub. Le sigh!

Another highlight of the Four Seasons experience? The Garden wine bar. The Garden is actually a new setting in the grand lobby of the hotel and offers wonderful wine and champagne selections. If we lived in Manhattan, we would host a girls luncheon or wine night here in a New York minute.

We could not have loved our stay more. While rates can be high for us urban darlings, we would completely recommend splurging for a romantic weekend with your significant other here or booking a room with one or two of your girlfriends to have a totally fabulous and indulgent New York weekend.

Check out our photos to see some of the highlights!

The view we first saw when we walked in! Two walls full of windows overlooking an expansive New York below.

The rooms are the biggest of any hotel in New York. The difference between this and other places we’ve stayed is definitely apparent.

Heavenly, no?

Hello, gorgeous. What beauty gal wouldn’t love to pamper and get ready in this room?!

It’s the details that make the most of an experience. The Four Seasons leaves no detail overlooked.

Hello, heaven. This photo doesn’t do the incredible walk-in closet justice. We had to scrape our jaws off of the floor when we first saw it. Dear Four Seasons, we’d love to have one of these in our apartment, ok?

The Four Seasons Hotel New York is located at 57 East 57th Street between Park and Madison Avenues. Make a date with it! We promise you won’t be disappointed.
