It’s been a little while since I’ve had two minutes spare to sit down with a coffee and get into my writing. Why?! Well I’ve been off enjoying some time off in Las Vegas of all places!
A fortnight ago I headed off to Sin City with a group of family friends for one of my oldest friends wedding. In fact I’ve known her since she was a ‘twinkle in her dad’s eye’ as they say, so watching her get hitched left me feeling pretty ancient!

Vegas has never really been a place on my wish list- I’ve always been far more interested in visiting LA, San Francisco and New York, but I must admit, I loved it from the moment we touched down!
Which to be honest isn’t surprising, since an hour after landing I was out with the girls creating hen party madness- which included an aussie strip show, dancing out the sunroof of a limo before strutting our stuff on the famed Coyote Ugly bar. It wasn’t any surprise that a relaxing spa day at Donald Trump’s hotel came as a welcome activity the next morning!

Once the hen party madness and spa day bliss was done and dusted, and one long jetlagged sleep later, it was time for the bride and groom to say I do!
After a busy morning pampering the bridal party, it was time to jump in the limo’s and head down to Lake Mead for a stunning lakeside ceremony, complete with laughs and bucket loads of tears.
Of happiness may I add!
The bride looked stunning, (if I do say so myself!!) and I’ll share how I created her bridal hair and make-up in a few weeks!

Ceremony over, and it was back to the famous ‘Strip’ to toast the new Mr and Mrs Corrigan!
With a few days of holiday left, I spent my time exploring the city, dancing and singing along to Rod Stewart at the famous Caesers Palace Collosium, and jumping in a helicopter to see the Grand Canyon. Which is an experience I would happily do on a daily basis!
|I REALLY want a helicopter of my own!|
A make-up junkee can’t visit the US without a splurge at Sephora, so I’ll share my spends with you all in the next few weeks.
But for now, it’s back to the sofa, with a kingsized duvet and a hot water bottle. Little bit different from spending last week in shorts and tee’s!
