Roadtripping To Vegas... Again?

They say all roads lead to Vegas and so did this one.

Did I mention how blessed and happy I am that I live in California? Because it means I am 4 hours way from Vegas, which means ROAD TRIPS!

I have been in the states for over 20 months and this was my third trip to Vegas. Out of all my trips to Vegas, this trip had some ups and downs. I managed to learned from it. Once again it just showed me that life isn't always sunshine and butterflies, but that sometimes we do have to go through some deepwater.

We left Saturday morning around 04:00 am tackled the Girl Trip. Lots of snacks, good music and some Turkish music of cause. My new favorite Turkish is son is Yolla by Tarkan. Such a hip song and definitely a good song for a road trip.

Our first stop was the Seven Magic Mountains. I have been there before but it is always nice visiting a familiar place and "updating" my pictures for instagram hahaha. Let's be honest now, we have forgotten to enjoy the moments because we are always so focused on getting that "perfect" instagram picture. And yes I am guilty too.

After that we were on route to Vegas! So funny thing is: our check in at the Hostel was at 15:00 and we arrived around 09:30.  We had no place to get ready but luckily there was a convention centre that had restrooms and we were able to dolly ourselves up and get dressed for the pool party. We attended a pool party at Daylight Beach Club. I had never been there nor heard of it before but it ended up being a good pool party. And just what I needed to cool off.

Eventually we went to the hostel where we were supposed to stay at. I personally have stayed at Las Vegas Hostel before, but this time we had to cancel our reservation as one of the rooms my friends were staying in was not very clean. Long story short, we were left with no accommodation in Vegas. At the end we managed to get a nice antique hotel which was very nice.

I was looking forward to seeing Tiƫsto as he was performing at Hakkasan the Saturday night. But we ended up not going, instead we went to Sapphire. Yes Sapphire the strip club. We didn't stay to long and then we went to some other club, I can't remember the name of the club though. Unfortunately I never got a chance to go in, so my night was spent walking back to the hotel. (A Story for another day)

But I can proudly say I survived Vegas once again. If you don't believe, me checkout my vlog on my youtube channel.

Rodan + Fields - Review Time

If you are like me and 90% of the time you are without makeup, you want to be confident with your "bare face". And I can say that has been me since I started using Rodan + Fields.


To be clear this is not a sponsored blog, just my personal experience and opinion.

I am really bless to have wonderful neighbors who care and listen to me complaining about my face everyday. So my neighbor suggested that I try out Rodan + Field and what a life changer it was!

This is my face before Rodan + Field (Pictures are unedited)


Looking back at this picture I had some marks on my face.

Firstly, I love the packaging, I mean who doesn't like purple? The products are packaged in a box, which is very steady and spacious.


In total I received four products:

1. Face Wash.
The first week I only washed my face once a day with the face wash as it was part of the instructions and I also wanted to see how my face reacted to the face wash. So in the morning I would just rinse my face off with lukewarm water and at night wash my face with the face wash, Which smells amazing and a little goes a long way.


2. Toner
After my face air dries, I apply the toner with a cotton pad and leave it to soak into my skin and also dry. The toner was very gentle on my skin which made me happy because when I try new face products on my face it usually stings. And no one likes that, especially me...


3. Moisturizer
The moisturizer is the best part for me. It has two pumps and I usually use two pumps of each side. So the moisturizer has two sides: the one side is and the other side is. I pumped both side and mix them together with my finger tips and apply it with my finger tips to my face. The moisturizer is so refreshing. It doesn't leave your face dry at all.


4. Sunscreen
No matter the color of your skin, you need to protect it. And that is what I like from the Rodan + Fields collection. It comes with sunscreen. What I do is during the day I apply the sunscreen on my face because I am outside with the kids. And I want to protect my skin. (It will thank me later) And night I apply the moisturizer.


This is my face two and a half weeks using Rodan + Fields.



In two and a half weeks my marks started to disappear and my complexion started to get lighter too.

As an au pair, the prices are a bit pricey. But I must also say for the quality of the product, the prices are not actually bad. The range from $160 - $190. What I like about the Rodan + Fields range is that a little goes a long way.

Will I use Rodan + Fields again? Hell yes. I am totally in love with Rodan + Fields. If you struggle with problem skin, do yourself a favor and go get you some Rodan + Fields. YOU WON'T BE SORRY.
