DAY 1: Stood in the longest cab line EVER with TJ, Michelle, and Bob. We finally made it to the beautiful Flamingo. Our rooms weren’t ready yet, so we dropped our luggage in the registration suite and met up with other BiSC-uits. I also got to see my awesome roomie, Ameena. I was so excited to rip through our amazing gift bags, I’m waiting for a special occasion to use the bacon soap! Once I was showered, I was so ready for the mixer at Carlos and Charlie’s. After the mixer, we had a private ice cream party at Serendipity 3.
DAY 2: I spent some much needed pool time with Nic, Tiff, and Melissa. In the blazing afternoon heat, went on a hotel-hunting adventure with Kelly. Wehad an excellent dinner at Le Village Buffet, followed by the nakey circus (Zumanity) at NYNY. I also loved hanging out with Suki, Kinsey, Anita, Kelly, and Donna.
DAY 3: Suki, Donna, and myself went on a #Buff-ail with our “24hour” buffet bracelets. We ventured to 3 different hotels to find a buffet, but we did not have time to eat! After that, we had an awesome brunch at the Paradise Garden Buffet sponsored by CrushHub. Our table won $20 each by setting up the lovely Amber with her Costa Rican surf God! Sara showed her awesome drawing skills by making my portrait. I’m totally going to frame it! After brunch, Ameena, Kelly, Donna, Suki, Almie, and I all went to the Las Vegas sign and an ICE BAR (Minus 5)! I had an amazing time at the ice bar, and was little bummed they didn’t allow cameras inside. Once I got back to the Flamingo, Jayme hooked us up with her makeup artist friend to prep for the Chateau Mad Men party. The Mad Men party was amazing, we danced our FACES OFF and we had a roped off VIP section with bottle service. HOLLA! I also wandered around and gambled afterwards.
DAY 4: Farewell brunch was great, I was glad to stay an extra day in Vegas to attend it this year. Nicole and the Paradise Garden Buffet staff did an awesome job! We rocked our spirit hoods and got a mini #VEDA2011 reunion. I also got a photo shoot with the talented Rachel! I can’t wait to see how the pictures came out. I finally got to spend some quality time with my boyfriend in Vegas, where I consumed 80oz of strawberry daiquiri out of a booze guitar from PBR Bar, witnessed a man flip out in the middle of the strip by tossing all his belongings in the middle of the street, and saw the inside of the swanky Cosmopolitan.
