Let’s be honest: one of the very best bits of travelling, namely, to hot place, is getting to go for a good ol’ swim. After growing up in South-East Asia I’m very particular (aka fussy!) about my swimming water. I love swimming, but basically avoid it in New Zealand because it’s just too dang cold! Swimming was on the very top of my list of things to do in Las Vegas, and let me tell you, it definitely did not disappoint.

After packing a whopping 5 swimswuits in my bag, I ended up wearing just this one. The high waist bottoms are by ASOS and reminded me so much of Robin Thicke’s infamous Miley Cyrus duet – cue lots of “girl, give it to me!” impressions at the pool (sorry, bystanders!) Really though, swimming in our hotel pool was one of my favourite experiences. We laid back in the spa, Corona in hand, and watched a real-life hummingbird gather nectar from the surrounding flowers. Paradise? Well, it was pretty darn close! ♥

Bonjour! That’s right, I’m in the city of lights itself; Paris… Las Vegas! ; ) This casino was absolutely stunning – in an over-the-top way; the best kind, don’t you think? After walking past the Eiffel Tower replica time and time again (usually on my way to watch the Bellagio fountain show, again) we finally went inside. Honestly, the detail that goes into these places is unreal! With the ‘street signs’ translated into French, I felt like I was either in Paris or having the most interactive high school French class I’ve ever had in my life!

In all honesty, I really, really wanted to take photographs in the main shopping area of Paris, Las Vegas. However the lighting had other ideas, so we said au revoir to the cobblestone pathways and started exploring the hallways near the conference centre. It turns out I couldn’t have asked for a better location as the colours and carpet print perfectly matched my Boohoo co-ord (yes, I’m all about the co-ords this trip!) I took along my full-to-the-brim Paris souvenir cup, my favourite thing from Vegas… Even more so now that my instagram followers have pointed out that it looks like it says ‘penis’! Well, what can I say? Ooh la la!
