From The Archive: 2013

With magazine placements on the side, 2013 was the last year I juggled blogging as a side gig. Things get a bit girlier in the style department too, with a lorra love for the sixties and a 'hive!


Will you pour me one for the road?

So, if you’ve been reading my blog for over a week (if not, hello new readers!) you’ll know that a couple of weeks ago Jaz and I flew out to Las Vegas for WWD Magic and FN Platform to spend the time blogging, talking on panels and doing a suitably touristy amount of exploring. After stepping off of the plane into 44 degree heat (yes, it felt like opening an oven door into your face the whole time) and realising that wearing black long sleeved body con tops were not the most sensible idea I’ve ever had and that taking these Vans were (here’s to appropriate packing)- it was time to hit Vegas. The first day was spent doing an impressive amount of exploring, and before we knew it, we’d hopped in a taxi to the Las Vegas sign (whilst the taxi driver waited) before dashing over to sample the myth, and the legend that is In-n-Out.

After hearing endless things about the burgers in the UK (remember the crazy pop up last year?), and finding out the reason we don’t actually have them is because they don’t like to freeze the product to travel (impressive, huh?) we sat down, to well, what was a pretty good burger. It wasn’t Honest (the best in London) but it was a tasty burger (Samuel L Jackson eat yo’ heart out), and the chips were quite something too. Plus, isn’t a walk around the strip and Sephora the best way to burn anything off?
Anyway- less of the foodie chat. After dipping in and out of some of the grandest resort hotels I’ve ever seen (well, except for that one time in The Hangover) we headed back to the hotel, for a disco nap (which turned into a serious boogie nap, oops) before heading out for um, more food at Wicked Spoon- Vegas’ best buffet, and certainly the best I’d been to (ok, more foodie chat, sorry). It was an incredible (and filling) way to start my trip to Vegas, and a really cool way of getting to know the other girls and bloggers out there, before heading back to prepare ourselves for the first day at Magic- eek!

and here’s what I wore…
