Burgers, burgers everywhere…the only veg we will be finding is the single gherkin and lettuce leaf between the bun. In an attempt for just one of your five-a-day, fruit smoothies are the only answer. Even the salad comes with chips! ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ”

Vegas travels

New York New York HotelBellagio Hotel

ParisBellagioCaesars Palace

Touch down in Las Vegas! Just wow…everything is huge and leaves you rather overwhelmed and without your bearings. You can get lost on the casino floor and could spend a day exploring each hotel. Everything is OTT, even the restrooms are lavish and each hotel has its inside transformed into its individual theme. Be prepared to be transported to Paris, New York, Venice, the jungle, Rome and anywhere in-between!

Vegas travels

If I were a bird..One big desert

So the adventure begins! After a very early start and little sleep from excitement, we have a 10 hour flight with BA until we touch down in Vegas! Flying over the U.S. was amazing, just the scale of everything, huge river deltas and deserts with nothing for miles except route 95 as a tiny line across the bottom. Despite the long flight I only watched three films, the headphones aren’t the comfiest and after an hour and a half your ears need a rest!

With minimal spoilers…Jupiter Ascending

Channing and Eddie only are topless in one scene and is a rather confused film. Think “Maid in Manhatten” mixed with “Star Wars”. I know, not a winning combo, plus a significant chunk of the alien palace looks like it’s shot in London’s National History Museum ๐Ÿ‹ and despite Channing being from another planet, unlike Thor, seems completly at home and you half expect him to walk into Starbucks and order his preferred coffee.

There was a great potential for dresses for Mila but they only put her in two stunning ones before she changed back into biker style gear. I mean her character chooses to change out of theseย dressesย into plain biker gear. That is like choosing a non topless Channing Tatum! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

In the search for more beautiful dresses I watched Cinderella next, we all know the story so no surprises there! Supporting actors made the film and there was seriously nice architecture…hello Prince Charming’s palace! But the poor guy is dressed in grey and white leggings all the time…who looks good in white leggings!! But of course, amazing dresses- even the evil step mother (Cate Blanchett) looked totally fierce.

Finally, Far from the Maddening Croud, a film I really wanted to see…but just meeh. I struggled to finish it, I just saw Carey Mulligan and Michael Sheen in a Pride and Prejudice style film…but really, silent scenes in the wilderness can only be pulled off by Kiera Knightly.

Pre holiday drinks!

Yobu bubble teaYobu yogurt

So to get into the holiday spirit, I’ve begun two days early with a trip to Yobu in Bournemouth that specialises in frozen yogurt and bubble tea…a completely new concept to me!

Yogurt wise you just choose your size, flavour of yogurt (plain or mango) and add two toppings (everything from chocolate flakes to fruit) and enjoy!

Bubble tea has a base of tea (jasmine green, oolong or lychee), with or without milk and then add two extra fillings (I had coconut and peach balls, little jelly things that pop in your mouth). Then ice is added and the whole thing cleverly sealed at the top with a cute bear face, so you have hot tea at the bottom and cold ice at the top with yummy fruit in the middle.

Really delicious and thirst quenching and far more interesting than a coffee shop iced drink. Prefect for summer and highly recommended (even if you don’t like tea!) โ˜•๏ธโ˜•๏ธโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ’๐ŸŠ
