I just got back from Las Vegas. I went on the Ultimate Girls Trip! I met up with some of my favorite bloggers for a weekend of fun and relaxation. We stayed at the Four Seasons on The Strip. This was my first time at the Four Seasons, but certainly not my last! We ate some of the best food ever, saw Britney Spears, O, and finished the trip with a pajama and cupcake party!

I was super excited for this trip because this was the first time I had ever stayed at a Four Seasons. The Four Seasons is located at the top of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. Let me tell you, it was SOOO nice! Luxury at its best!

I had a one bedroom suite. It was crazy big! It had a half bath, den, giant closet, huge bedroom and an amazing full bathroom. I wanted to move in. My room overlooked the runway at the airport.
Dinner the first night was at Veranda in the Four Seasons. It was, in a word, amazing!
There were five courses.
Capesante - Pan Seared Diver Sea Scallops, Citrus Ricotta, Artichokes, Orange Caramel
Cavolo - Organic Baby Kale, Prosciutto, Walnuts. Gorgonzola Dolce, Pickles Strawberries, Aged Balsamic
La Pasta Cotta Nel Vaso - Artichoke Pasta cooked and served in a Jar
Scallops, Calamari, Shrimp, Cacciucco Sauce, Sweet Basil
Brasato - Braised Beef Short Ribs, Schiacciata Potatoes, Garlic Cream, Taurus Red Wine Sauce
Dessert was an amazing chocolate tray and a cannoli trio.
I was stuffed! It was all so delicious!
I highly recommend Veranda for dinner.
The excuse for us all going to Vegas, was to see Britney Spears for Shelly's birthday.
OMG! Britney was AMAZING!
She put on one heck of a show.
I'm not even a huge Britney fan, and I would totally go see her again!
After the show we walked across the street to Crystals and The Cosmopolitan.
Some of us got a midnight snack at the secret pizza place.
We got hit on by some cute British boys and almost saw a hooker fight a girl in the taxi line.
Vegas gets real after midnight!
As soon as I landed in Vegas, I headed to the Cristophe Salon at MGM to get my hair done.
When I told my hairdresser, Erick Campbell, where we were eating that night, he said we had to do the brunch on the weekend!
We got reservations, and Campbell was right. You HAVE to do brunch at Veranda!
Best breakfast buffet ever!
How could it not be? They have a guy making mini doughnuts!
There is an amazing bloody mary bar, a machine that grinds fresh honey roasted peanut butter for your toast, the best chicken and waffles, and so much more.
I will always compare breakfast buffets to this one at the Four Seasons Las Vegas.
It was the best I've ever had.
After breakfast we relaxed for a few hours at the pool.
The cabanas are amazing - TV, refrigerators, water, shade!
Because we hadn't eaten enough, we got some nachos and french fries.
Best nachos ever - they had melted cheese and queso on them. I could have eaten the whole platter!
We had late afternoon snacks at Press, the lobby bar and lounge.
We sampled tons of great food.
I especially loved the Salted Mini Pretzels with Stout Cheese Dipping Sauce and the Charcuterie & Cheese Board was to-die-for.
I definitely need to bring Chicken Legs back to have a cocktail and some snacks on our next trip.
That night we went to see "O" at the Bellagio.
I have seen it before, but it was great to see it again.
It is a really great show!
After the show we changed into our PJs.
I just love these girls!! We have so much fun when we are together!
Since we hadn't eaten enough, we had cupcakes from Retro Bakery!
The cupcakes were good, but I was all about the sugar cookies!

I was so sad to leave the Four Seasons and all my friends!
We had such a fun time eating, shopping, eating, going to shows and eating.
The long weekend wasn't nearly long enough! I am SO ready to go back!
I left Vegas with a new favorite purse - this Medium Metro Tote from MZ Wallace is awesome! It is roomy and fits under the plane seat. I've been carrying it everywhere since I got home. I am definitely getting another color soon!
I am also in LOVE with my ballerina pink Tieks. They the perfect travel shoe!
