Vegas here I come...

.

Thanks to all you ladies that enjoyed the pics from my sister's party and for the lovely comments. We are very close to our dad if you can't tell, lol, and family is important to me even though they can get on your nerves sometimes! LOL. I just enjoyed doing their makeup and seeing my mom look glam and dolled up for once! She NEVER wears makeup or anything, so it was nice to make them feel beautiful that night. My mom loved her little makeover and wearing falsies (for the first time ever!). I wanted it more dramatic and smoky but mom wanted to stick to neutrals and hence she was the one that chose the "Creme d' Nude" lippie.

The party itself was so elegant and yes it was like a mini-wedding (and waaaaaayyy better than my 18th bday!) but she totally deserves it. It was like that Sweet Sixteen show on MTV minus the car haha. I am telling you my sister NEVER asks for anything from me or my parents. Even when she was a kid, you had to FORCE her to let you buy something FOR her. She's a good kid and she deserved to have a big 'ol bday with her childhood friends; and I am glad she had a lot of fun here in California.

I've been so exhausted this entire week, from my sister's party 'till today i've been getting roughly 4 or 5 hours of sleep each night, it was hard to go to bed during my normal time since we still had a few guests and my sisters for some odd reason never go to bed before 2am (yes even the little one!). My parents & sisters left yesterday to go back to Washington, someone asked me where in Washington are they from and they are around the Seattle area. My sisters were sad to leave, and they both were crying because they didn't wanna go home, but they will be back in July since the BF and I are taking them to Hawaii in August; so they are spending half of their summer vacation with us. Happy to see them yes, but not happy that I'll be spending all my money on them HAHA.

I plan on getting some sleep though tonight in the car while we are on the way to Vegas! The BF and a few friends are heading out to Las Vegas tonight just for fun, and you can bet I am nabbing the entire backseat all to myself and knock out! Since the boys will probably be hitting the tables and gambling the weekend away, I will be hitting up the CCO's (there are only 2 in Nevada, one at the premium outlet and one in Primm Valley), and the MAC PRO store at the Caesar's Palace.

Then I plan on hitting up the Wynn buffet because their desserts are so yummy!

For you new to makeup lingo, CCO stands for the Cosmetics Company Outlet, which is owned by Estee Lauder (which also owns MAC and Flirt! Cosmetics) and they sell discounted and discontinued products from famous brands such as Bobbi Brown, Clinique, and of course MAC (just to name a few). Many of you have emailed me asking me where to shop in Vegas or where the CCO's are located, so here are the addresses, please call them for directions:

Las Vegas Premium Outlets
875 South Grand Central Parkway
Las Vegas, NV
702-474-7500


and

FASHION OUTLETS OF LAS VEGAS
I-15 at Exit 1 in Primm, NV
32100 Las Vegas Blvd. S.
Primm, NV 89019
702-874-1400


So I hope that helps you ladies that visit Sin City, I will be posting from Vegas (I hope, depends on how much internet connection is at the hotel lol), have a great weekend y'all!
