Viva Las Vegas!

Viva Las Vegas!

I promise I have a good reason for being a bad blogger this past week and it’s contained in one word: VEGAS!

I just reunited with some of my very best friends from college to mix things up in Vegas- no sleep, gambling, cash, table service, sassy clothes and plenty of cocktails (cristal, what?) & dancing!

Vegas is in a universe of its own- a crazy, 24/7, non-stop partying, best people watching, out of control city that’s unlike any other place. Some people hate and others love it. I happen to be in the camp where I love it.

What do you think? Love or hate Vegas?!

One of my very best friends, Lauren, is setting out on a mission to accomplish her dream assignment as a promising photographer (seriously, amazing. Check out her photo portfolio here- you’ll be amazed).

In order to tell the story of a culture nearing extinction, Lauren and her brother are looking to travel to communities of Tibetan refugees in India and Nepal, as well a Tibet itself , to document the people and culture and raise awareness.

Their goals are to:
1) Document the Tibetan way of life before it disappears completely.

2) Tell the stories of the refugees in India and Nepal desperately trying to hold onto their identity in a foreign land away from their families – learn about the struggles in their homeland.

3) Raise awareness through this project – with our blog, people will be able to follow us as we share what we learn along our journey, and when we return, we will host a gallery show with the photos to raise funds and increase public understanding.

But in order to be judged by a panel, they need to make it into the top 20 and need YOU to help them! Please take a minute and vote for them by clicking here. (Yes, you have to annoyingly register your e-mail, but it is all in an effort to keep the contest fair and they promise no spam so it’s 1 minute of your time and potentially more minutes of life for the children suffering in the countries Lauren plans to document!)

And we're off!

And we're off!

As you know, I’m jetting off to Beaver Creek, CO tomorrow to be a ski bunny with three of my very best friends (those that could not make it will be missed!) I’ll be a little MIA for the time, but will have full reports when I get back. Vail & Beaver Creek will have more than enough to provide me when it comes to trends, entertainment, winter fashions and everything in between. Can’t wait!

The exact scene we’ll be watching tomorrow night as skiers glide down with lights, fireworks glisten in the sky and we ladies sip cocktails on my balcony soaking up the view!
