Vegas - A Visual Diary - Part 2

Hi Gorgeous Bloggers!

Well now what you are about to see was clearly  one of my favorite part of the trip - the other one were the shows we attended -

The mountains in the desert were what caught my eye the first morning as i was looking through our hotel room on the 31th floor -


We took a heli tour to see the Grand Canyon

Here i am at 5 h 55!  Ready to go!

Photobucket

On board the heli

I am not adventurous at all and more so as i am getting older- How can i put it so i do not sound boring - I take calculated risk !

I realized though that it was pretty safe !

 But flying over the Grand Canyon makes you realize that you are very small indeed!

At one point i was a bit panicish! Flying over - No sign of life - Arid paradise -  All that splendor  - Wow !

I am smiling there alright! I guess i got over it!  Mr D taking pics of me with my I-Pod and camera


Photobucket

Flying over - taken with my I-Pod

Isn't this unbelievable! Vegas was 45 minutes away by heli

Looks like you are on the moon! - I never saw anything like this and I travelled a bit and saw awesome things!

I kept thinking about the pioneers who tried to cross over Nevada to get to California
I kept thinking of the harsh conditions they went through
The ones who died-
The ones who made it

Photobucket

I was in the front of the heli coming back


Photobucket

We landed in the Grand Canyon!

We had a little snack while down there or up there!

I will always remember this -  Once in a life time experience- Beats the strip anytime!

On an another subject -  i need your advice cat lovers - My oldest ChouChou has got thinner all of sudden- He eats well - he is active enough for a 12 years old cat -  but still not normal to loose so much weight within a couple a months  - My mom had  a cat who lost a lot of weight while still eating pretty well, his problem was its thyroid, i wonder if it is the same for ChouChou - Well, the only way to find out it to see a vet, that i will do soon! But i wonder if you encountered the same problem with  your beloved cats -

Vegas- Part 1 - A Visual Diary -

Hi Ladies!

Nice to be back!

I will bore you a bit with vacation pics - I will be back to outfit posts soon!

My pics will be a mix of my I-pod and my small Cannon camera

What is it to say about Vegas?

Over the top, decadent, trashy, dirty, rich, poor, opulent, classy, hot and cold, questionable, grandiose, earsplitting -

Would i go back ? No - But it has to bo seen to believe it!



The view from our room - We stayed at Le Paris
We had supper in the Eiffel Tower Restaurant
Very fancy dinner !

Photobucket

The Venetian Hotel

The facade is a replica of Piazza San Marco in Venice!

Photobucket

Gardens at the Bellagio Hotel

Photobucket

Sweets at the Venetian Hotel
I had one of those a couple of times
I am back to sensible eating!

Photobucket

New York - New York Hotel


Photobucket

The Strip

Photobucket

Photobucket

The pool at our hotel - View from our Hotel window- 26th floor
We spent a couple of mornings there - We usually left around 13h30 the sun was overwhelming!

Photobucket

We saw 3 shows in Vegas - Love and O from Cirque du Soleil and Phantom of the Opera

The shows in Vegas are extraordinaire!

I was so lucky to see such magnificient shows!


Photobucket

This is another story come back tomorrow for more details !
This is me - the blond girl  waiting to go in the limo!
Photobucket

There all sorts of people dressed up for pics and of course were expecting a tip
You have to admire them to stand  in the 45 C sun all day!
This guy was my favorite -

Vacation Starts!

Hi Ladies!

Thank you new followers i have reached the 200! Youpi! and Hurray!

I have been away from the Web - Relaxing- Enjoying the nice weather!
Vacation time for me and Mr. D
3 well deserve weeks for us!
Going soon to Vegas!
If anybody got Instagram you will be able to follow me in Vegas!
I am stylesudest on Instagram !

Can't wait to be there!

Photobucket

It has been madly warm here- 35 in the shade
Not complaining, will never complain -
I feel sorry for my UK friends
It seems we got all the heat this year!
How is it anyway? Is it getting better?

Photobucket

This 80's dress  i got for $2 is part of an ensemble
But wore together i think would be to busy
I styled it funky - you have to be careful with 80s items if you do not want to end up looking like  a dowager!

Photobucket

Crazy 80s pattern and look at the button!
Mr. D purchased the top at a charity shop for $1- i cut the sleeves!
It was in my closet for a while- I did not wear it - i am giving it another try with the short sleeves-

Photobucket

Did you noticed the hair is different
I got my inspiration from gorgeous Desiree
I got myself Velcro rollers - I curled my hair yesterday- slept on it  and it is still curly today - I guess i must have a natural wave or curl -
A very retro look - i think it will be a keeper for a while -
What do you think?

Photobucket

I lost quite bit of weight about 8 pounds and some ask me why i was loosing the weight?

Before i met Mr D. i was 10 pounds lighter but you know what it is new relationships, it seems that weight gain is part of the fun!

I decided to loose some weight because i am more comfortable at a certain weight and plus wanting to eat better and more so now - since  i have another medical problem  - but not to worry- it is a nasty virus that will eventually go away- It will need constant medical monitoring -


Photobucket

Call me strange, but i am happy to have this medical problem - It makes me more aware that in this life you have to take better care of yourself and determine what is important to you - It is all part of the Human Experience the good and the bad stuff - This is what makes you stronger -

I will be at Patti's Visible Monday and Monday Mingle
