Spring Break Essentials (Vegas Edition!)

When going on Spring Break there are some basic essentials everyone needs, but when going to Vegas on Spring Break?  You have to have your packing list down to a "T"!
I was inspired by Vegas.com's One Bag or Bust initiative, along with multiple other bloggers, to each pick up to five of our own Spring Break essentials, and these are mine!
  1. Cute Koozie - This would have to be my first essential, because no matter what kind of drink you have on hand, it is going to get hot quick in that Vegas heat.  Keeping it iced or frozen and in a Koozie is an essential for keeping your drink... drinkable.  They have a set of two super cute and girly ones in the Target dollar section right now for $3!
  2. Water Bottle - Along with that Koozie, you are going to need a good water bottle to stay hydrated!  The heat intense and will quickly dehydrate you, but if you are also drinking?  That is an all day hangover waiting to happen...  So, go one for one.  For every alcoholic drink you have have a cup of water, and make sure to pregame your pregame with plenty of water as well.  You might pee your brains out like this, but won't it be worth it to be able to function the next day??
  3. Your ID - If you plan on using that Koozie or putting the water plan into action, you are going to need your ID.  This is probably a given, especially if you are planning on being the DD (designated driver), but it is worth giving your wallet one last check before leaving the house and hotel, just to make sure.
  4. A Cute Bikini and Cover Up - Moving away from all of the drinking, it is going to be HOT, and if you are lucky enough to be staying at one of the hotels with an awesome pool, you need to put that to use!  Pick out your cutest bikini (or buy a new one) and wear it with confidence!  Also, make sure to pack a cover up like a little dress or sarong which you can throw on and wear to the poolside bar, snack bar, or up to your room without feeling self conscious.
  5. Sunscreen - Finally, if you are swimming or not, you have the potential to be out in the hot sun while shopping, walking to your hotel, or visiting attractions.  Pick a high SPF with a more natural smell, that way you can prevent sunburn while not feeling sticky or smelling like a tourist. 

I don't know about you, but of all the Las Vegas Hotels, I'd love to say at the Venetian... I would also be making a beeline for the best Spa I could find, possibly Canyon Ranch, but hey, I'm not picky!  I'd love to try out the casinos... but with a set amount of money, because I'm not going to loose all my money there!  Shopping is also a must, probably a live show or two, and definitely dinner at Hard Rock cafe!
I have made my imaginary trip plan.

I hope these essentials help you out, and that you take advice from some of the other ladies who have contributed as well!

**Small Disclaimer: I am in fact underage, and don't plan to be drinking or gambling like this any time soon!  Regardless, these are tips (such as with the water) I have read up on, learned, and been given that you can still trust!**

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

Country Concert Lookbook

Early this fall I will be going to a Brad Paisley AND an Avett Brothers concert!  So when I found out King Ranch Saddle Shop was looking for inspiration when it comes to country style I had to share my ideas!  It is the dog days of summer, with hot days and cool nights here in the mountains, so I tried to create looks to fit all weather and styles!

Sassy  For the budding flower child who needs to show a bit of a wilder side and have fun for the night!   This is a crop top and basic jean shorts, which could be subbed for light wash ripped skinnies if the venue is going to be cooler (which is actually what I wore to a Flogging Molly concert last fall!). Crop Top: American Eagle Shorts: Hollister Flower Crown: Claire's


Sweet  This is for the sweet girly girl who still want to show their country side.  It is a simple white lace top dress, to which I have added a red flannel for those cool Summer nights.  The flannel could be tied around your waist during the day, or substituted for a d…
