It's Vegas baby...

This is where I have been for the last 6 days at he Tropicana Hotel on the Vegas strip...


For once in  my life I feel completely normally just walking down the street !!


Believe it or not, apart from going out for food, I spent 3 days solid in my hotel room making samples for the show...


The view from my room at night


Lots of Skypes...


But on Thurs it all changed... Look who knocked on my door...!!


Yup, one of my besties, the fabulous Dina Wakley came out to see me. And just look what the hire car place had given her !!


Vegas in a Mustang convertible...don't mind if I do...


We decide to go see the Hoover Dam


But it was sooo hot..111degrees and no shade, so we didn't last long.


I still really wanted to see it so I conned/bullied/persuaded Dina to come up in a helicopter with me.







If you are ever there you need to do it, It was frikkin awesome.


After a long lunch we hit Ceasers Palace and the shops. Eeek look what we stumbled across...It would be ruuuude not to go in.



And it would be even ruuuuder not to try everything on. I adored this dress but it was just too tight across the girls.


Still I found a few other things to make up for it lol

Obligatory tourist pic


And then it was time for a bit of pampering, got to look your best for CHA.


I am busy now packing up my suitcases to move to a hotel nearer the Convention centre, which will be my home for the next 6 days of mayhem and madness.

I will post up some samples of my new stuff tomorrow for you all to see..

Enjoy xx

Looks so fun.... all of it!! I had to LOL at all the Elvis'es. The helicopter ride looked amazing and I'm sure it's something that is super special. Last visit I had to Hoover Dam was in 1998 and we could still drive across the top of the dam then and before the bridge construction ever began. I'd like to visit again some day.
