Buffalo Bill Hotel Review

Vegas Weekend! Ahh Vegas, the place where most of people I know flock to at least once a month. Why? Well, it’s the one place where you can walk around with an open bottle in your hand, amazing buffets, gorgeous hotel rooms, and beautiful people. But, Vegas hasn’t been that great to me. I started clubbing right when I turned 18 and went clubbing at least every two weeks, sometimes three times a week. And, I always went clubbing sober (the legal drinking age is 21 here in cali). But, when I turned 21… I was all clubbed out – if that’s possible. Maybe because I had a boyfriend, or because I lost my favorite pair of heels and now I can only dance for a hour before heading back to the hotel – I don’t know. Anyway, I digress. After our flight to Hawaii did not work out, we decided to drive to Vegas at around 7 PM. The drive is only 4 – 5 hours and since we were trying to save money… we decided to stay at Buffalo Bills. Now, …

Avenue of the Arts – VDay Weekend

This valentines, things went a little different. Brandon asked me a few days before Valentines Day if I thought we “overdo” things.“Overdo things? I don’t think so… it’s not like we go all out.” I replied. But, a quick look through our past valentines day revealed a different story. Valentines Day in SF 2014  : We flew out first class to San Francisco and stayed at the Hyatt, which is Brandon’s favorite hotel so far. Plus, plenty of gift giving also. So, after glancing at the previous post, we decided to tone it down a little bit this year. We stayed at a nice hotel, I gave Brandon a Robe + Lucky Brand Belt and he treated me out the whole weekend to yummy restaurants.  Anyway, on to the hotel review! If you’ve been following me for quite some time, you should know that I appreciate a great hotel. I love spacious rooms, a great view (rarely get a great view actually), quiet surroundings, and overall great customer service. Avenue of the Arts hotel was actually one of the best hotels I’ve ever …

What I did – 4th of July!

Preparing for the 4th Of July !  Hopefully you guys all had an amazing weekend filled with lots of BBQed food and drinks! Usually, July 4th isn’t that big of a deal for me… my parents and I just spend it at the beach watching fireworks. This year was different, I got to celebrate July 4th with Brandon and it was preeetttyyy amazing! He surprised me by taking me to the Marriott hotel near Disneyland. Our original plans were to go to Disney but our plans got ruined… nonetheless, we had a great night! We ate in, watched some Key & Peele, and had the time of our lives!  Remember my spa water post? Their water was especially tasty. This is the first time we stayed at the Marriott hotel; Brandon usually gets the Hyatt or Holiday Inn. Out of all the hotels I would say this is one of the nicest rooms we’ve gotten (behind the Omni). The price was pretty affordable also. Although the room was really nice, the scenery and surroundings couldn’t compete with …
