Weekend Getaway at Harrah’s Atlantic City

harrahs atlantic city

I recently traveled to NYC to visit one of my best friends, Tyler, and we decided to take a little weekend trip to Atlantic City while I was there. I had never been to Atlantic City, so I was excited to see what the “East Coast Vegas” had to offer. We stayed at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City, which is very close to the boardwalk and has its own casino, resort-style pool, and numerous restaurants.

We had a suite in the Atrium Tower, which was very spacious, and the building itself was quiet and felt separate from the bustle of the casino. The hotel room was very clean and the bed was incredibly soft and comfortable. We felt right at home while staying there.

One of my favorite things about Harrah’s Atlantic City was the huge indoor pool and hot tubs. The pool area is under a glass dome so there’s plenty of natural sunlight and it’s a perfect 82 degrees year-round. We did have some overcast weather and rain while we were there, so the pool was the perfect escape!

It wouldn’t be a visit to Harrah’s without trying our luck at the casino! There were tons of different games to play: slot machines, poker, roulette, craps, and more. I didn’t win anything, but Tyler came out with about $60! The casino area of the hotel was buzzing at all hours, and we had a ton of fun each night we were there. 

Gordon Ramsay Steak Review

We had the opportunity to try Gordon Ramsay Steak during our stay, which was just a short walk from our hotel room. I’ve always liked steak, but I’ve never thought of myself as a ‘steak person’ – until I tried Gordon Ramsay Steak! The entire experience was very high class and luxurious, from the restaurant decor, to the service. Our waiter was very friendly and brought around a display with all of the different cuts of steak and explained each one to us.

I decided on the New York Strip and Tyler went with the Beef Wellington (a Hell’s Kitchen classic!). The meal started off with a selection of bread, each of which was delicious. I chose the French 76 to drink, which is a champagne cocktail with elderflower. Very tasty!

We ordered the mac and cheese and fingerling potatoes as sides, which were both divine. The steak was perfectly tender and is by far the best steak I have ever had in my life. I am drooling just thinking about it! For dessert, we chose the cheesecake, but our waiter also convinced us to try to sticky toffee pudding (Gordon’s mom’s recipe). Both were fantastic! I honestly can’t say enough good things about this restaurant. If I ever come back to Atlantic City, I am definitely coming here again!

All in all, we had a great weekend away in Atlantic City. I highly recommend staying at Harrah’s Resort if you decide to make AC your next travel destination. Have you ever been to Atlantic City? Tell me about your experience in the comments below!

3 Types of Bodysuits Styled For 3 Different Looks: Featuring Yandy

Bodysuits have been a hot trend lately and it looks like they are here to stay. I love bodysuits because they are very easy to mix and match with different skirts, shorts, and pants to create different looks. They are also very flattering because they hug your curves and nip in your waist. You can find anything from a basic, solid color bodysuit, to something more daring that would be the focus of the outfit. They can also be worn year-round, and dressed up or down, so they are a very versatile piece to have in your wardrobe. 

Yandy sent me some bodysuits to try out and I styled them in a few different ways so you can see the various ways they can be worn.

Lacy Teddy Bodysuit

The Yandy Edita Rose Teddy is actually lingerie, but can definitely be worn as a bodysuit. While there are sheer elements, there is also enough coverage for it to be worn in public without any worries. This is an absolutely gorgeous piece that is very feminine and delicate. I chose to pair it with a black leather skirt to contrast the femininity of the bodysuit, and they play really well together. I would wear this outfit on a night out with the girls! This teddy is a total bargain at only $19.95 and it is really well made.

Racerback Bodysuit

You can’t go wrong with a black racerback bodysuit for everyday, casual wear. This Jersey and Lace Bodysuit is super comfortable and has a little added style with lace details on the back and bottom. I paired it with black denim shorts for a look I would wear out shopping or even to the bars. This is a great staple to have in your wardrobe because you can dress it up or down and match it with a lot of different bottoms. I would love to have one of these in a bunch of different colors so I could match it with a lot of different outfits.

Long Sleeve Bodysuit

It is also great to have a solid, long sleeve bodysuit that can be worn for a casual look or for going out. The Choker Plunge Bodysuit is the perfect choice because it has a flirty, cut out neckline, but is still appropriate enough that you could wear it to an office party. It is very stretchy and the material is actually solid enough that it isn’t see through – something that I always struggle to find! I always have issues matching tops to this sequin mini skirt, but this bodysuit is a perfect match. 

The great thing about Yandy is it’s size-inclusive! Check out their plus-size lingerie for some super cute bodysuits.

Affordable Fashion Finds: Femme Luxe Finery Review

Femme Luxe Finery recently reached out to me to review some of their clothing. I was excited to work with a UK-based store because I used to live in England, and in my opinion, they have the best fashion around. I have also been very sick of shopping at the mall lately, so I’ve been looking for new places to shop online. Femme Luxe is very affordably priced, and is great for trying out new trends without breaking the bank.

I did have some initial concerns because, while I am fairly curvy, I am not Kardashian-level curvy. A lot of their clothing seems to be designed for someone with a tiny waist and larger hips, so I selected my size based on the waist measurement, hoping there wouldn’t be too much extra fabric at the hips. Overall, I was very happy with the fit and the quality was pretty good given the price point. I would compare the quality with Forever 21 or H&M, which is pretty much what you would expect and is totally fine for a statement piece you only expect to wear a few times or something very trendy. 

Cropped Loungewear Set

Femme Luxe Blake Khaki Off Shoulder Loungewear Set

The Blake Khaki Off Shoulder Loungewear Set includes a cropped long sleeve top and skinny jogger bottoms. The material is very soft and I like the khaki color. This is something I would wear lounging around the house or to run out to the grocery store. It will be perfect for the mild winters here in Scottsdale, but for now it is way too hot to wear this outside! I think this would have fit me a little better if I had a little more junk in the trunk, but nonetheless it is still a cute outfit.

Bodysuit + Leggings

Femme Luxe Abra Black Long Sleeve Mesh Overlay Bodysuit and Hazel Black Animal Crocodile Print Leggings

I paired the Abra Black Long Sleeve Mesh Overlay Bodysuit with the Hazel Black Animal Crocodile Print Leggings for a dressy going out look. These were my two favorite pieces from my order because they are very comfortable and also easy to mix and match with other pieces in my wardrobe. I love the feel of the bodysuit – sheer is always sexy – and it nips in at the waist for a flattering fit. The leggings have this really cool textured crocodile print and can easily work for a casual outfit with an oversized tee. They are also very stretchy and comfortable. I probably could have sized down with these, but I also like how cozy they are.   

Asymmetrical Jumpsuit

Femme Luxe Evelyn Black Belted One Shoulder Jumpsuit

I was most excited about trying the Evelyn Black Belted One Shoulder Jumpsuit because I haven’t gotten in on the jumpsuit trend much yet, and this one is so gorgeous! I feel like I need to go somewhere fancy just so I have an excuse to wear it, but really it can be worn for a variety of occasions. It fits really well and there are no issues with the top staying up, which I normally experience with anything that has one shoulder. The fabric is fairly thick, so it isn’t see through at all, and feels well made. This will probably be me go-to for going out this fall and winter. 

Overall, I was very happy with the items I received and pleasantly surprised by the fit and quality. Most of what I ordered is more suited to colder weather, so I will be ready when the temps start cooling back down (which seems a long ways off here in Arizona)! I would definitely try Femme Luxe Finery again – maybe something more colorful and summery next time. Now that I know how the items fit and what to expect, I would probably venture out of my comfort zone a little more. 

Online shopping can be risky, but luckily returns are usually pretty easy! Femme Luxe accepts all returns within 14 days of receipt. At such a low price point, it is definitely worth giving Femme Luxe a try! What is your favorite place to shop online? Have you discovered any hidden gems? Let me know in the comments!

How To Feel Confident In A Bikini

I’ll be perfectly honest – I have always had body issues. I don’t think many women can say they haven’t felt insecure about their body at some point in their life. But 2019 is all about loving yourself and feeling confident in your own skin, so let’s embrace it! There are some easy ways to give yourself an extra boost of confidence while wearing a bikini this summer. Getting the right fit is the first step, then choosing the right style for you will bring out your inner confidence and make you feel gorgeous.

Choose A Fun Print

Yandy Slither & Slay Snakeskin Bikini

I love the snakeskin print on the Yandy Slither & Slay One Shoulder Bikini Top. Snakeskin is on trend for summer 2019 and you will be sure to get tons of compliments by wearing it. I always feel more confident wearing something a little more daring without going too over the top. I also like how the side is adjustable so you can decide how much skin you want to show. For someone with a bigger bust like me, it also helps to give the top a little more support

Wear A Multiway Bikini Top

A multiway bikini top gives you unlimited options on how you want to style your bikini. I chose to style the Yandy Desert Rose 5 Way Bikini by tying it in the front, which also gave me a little more coverage over my abdomen – an area I am a little insecure about. There are a lot of really cool ways to style this bikini which would be sure to turn heads and boost your confidence. You can tie the straps to make it look more like a crop top, or create a halter top for some added lift.

Throw On A Sexy Cover Up

It’s easy to throw on a cover up to hide your flaws, but with something a little sexier, you can feel covered up and confident at the same time. The Yandy Slither & Slay Cover Up is sheer with a side slit, so it is very sexy, but also very comfortable and on trend. No one will ever question your confidence while wearing a cover up like this. This cover up is perfect for wearing to a pool party or to the beach.

There are so many options for swimwear right now that there’s no reason you can’t find something that makes you feel confident and look stunning.
