I totally meant to post something fun and fabulous before I left… but that didn’t work out. Time came down on me like a hammer, and the day of the trip turned out to be crazy. But I just wanted to let all of you know that I’m in Las Vegas for my sister in law’s 70’s themed karaoke wedding! Won’t be back to regular posting until next Tuesday.

I’m staying at the stunning Green Valley Ranch Resort just off the Strip, and bellas let me tell you — this place is stunningly gorgeous. The pool looks like a scene from Entourage or something — amazing cabana beds as far as the eye can see, and the iconic buildings of the Strip glittering in the distance. This post will be short and sweet, as my in laws are all waiting for me down at the pool.

Thanks to all of you who advised me on 70’s dresses for full figured bellas like me – I chose this gorgeous silky dress in the Cosmo pattern, so it’s a modern (read: flattering) fit with the fun Seventies-type style I was looking for. Expensive, yes — but it fits like a dream. Kiyonna is back in my good books!

While I am here I am hoping to meet up with two of my favorite beauty blog buddies — Lianne the Makeup Girl and Christina of Christina Loves.

I will try to post a little while I am here, but HEY! I’m on vacation!! So maybe some time away from the computer is necessary.

Look out for longer posts next week, and for those of you following me on Twitter, I’ll be posting regularly from my phone.

Happy weekend, bellas and fellas!

** I don’t even have access to my FTP, so the image of the strip above is from here.

Hey girl, have fun at the wedding. I like the dress you got from Kiyonna. Whenever I get married, I want to do Vegas too.

Ooh Karaoke wedding! That's brilliant. And I remember Green Valley Ranch from the reality series ("American Casino") and it looked like a lovely oasis a few miles from the strip. I'm sure you'll have an awesome time!

Bella, You're back. I was beginning to worry something had happened to you! Do I sound like your mother? :) Anyway, I realized how much I count on your daily commentary and news. You help to keep me up to date, and I am always interested in what you have to say. All that to say, we miss you. Have a blast!!!! You deserve it. Yoli

I don't know how long you are there for, but you are still in town on Sunday evening. I strongly recommend seeing Purple Reign at the House of Blues in Mandalay Bay. They are a Prince Tribute band that is out of this world! If I remember correctly their show it at 10pm with a $10 cover.

Enjoy Bella! I live in Vegas and love it when I'm not in Vegas more than I love being in Vegas :). I like the Green Valley Ranch area it's a very un-Vegas part of town.

This is a huge weekend in Las Vegas because BlogWorld expo is this weekend. I love, love, love Green Valley Ranch. I go there often and that's where Michael Jackson stays sometimes. It's truly first class and the new mile is out of this world. Enjoy your stay.

Ok, I'll admit it - I'm jealous. But have some fun for me and I agree with everyone else - STAY OFF THE COMPUTER. I look forward to the recap of the wedding, sounds like it's going to be tons of fun. How did you style your hair?
