ok, i know i didn't explain vegas well. mostly because i didn't have time.
i had such a good, unexpected trip, that it really is hard to explain through a post.
so here are my loves, and loathes of Vegas:
the lights: especially because it was decorated for christmas. it was so beautiful and flashy and bright.
the shops: there were so many great shops, and yes we did go to the 3 story h&m :) and i found the sweater i had seen on pinterest, so i bought it. naturally
the watershow at the Bellagio: so beautiful, and fascinating
the inspiration: i found it there. for fashion, for life. a new determination to pursue what i want. and feel good about. not a self gratifying way, but a confidence in what i know is right. i am aware this is vague. but i had some intense convos in vegas that lead me to some of these realizations about myself.
the casinos: they were pretty, but so sad. the overweight, smoking, lifeless looking people who sat at these machines who were wasting their lives away. oh i hated it.
The smoke: oh lordy, everyone smokes and it's all contained in these restaurants and casino rooms. you cannot walk through a lobby, or from one side to another without your contacts clouding over. yuck.
the exploitation of women: wow. it is everywhere.
Overall, i did have a great time, mostly because of the people we met, and who showed us around.
