Encore Beach Club: 28 Days To Pool Season Finale


Pool Season 2019 has officially started, and I spent the first-day basking in the sun at Encore Beach Club. I got myself bikini ready by following my 28 Days to Pool Season Workout Program that you can follow too! Here is a bit of a rundown on Encore Beach Club and how I feel about it.


Encore is a BEAUTIFUL property by itself. I love to have my friends stay here as they will NEVER be disappointed with the staff, their service, or their stay. I have not heard a single complaint ever from them on anything here. Encore Beach Club is no different. The staff is extremely friendly and professional. Security is tight to get through, they do a full bag search and metal detector scan and have a long list of items that are not allowed in...like selfie sticks...I had to toss mine out... and even though I had to throw something away I still thought the staff handled me with kindness and that is a HUGE DEAL to me.


The lines will be long, but they are easy to figure out and the staff is more than happy to help you figure out where you are supposed to be. The lines are usually set up like Guest List - General Admission/Ticket Holders -  Cabana/Daybed rentals. I always recommend you buy tickets or get a table with your friends. Depending on how busy the day is, the guest list line could wrap around the stairs and by the time you get to the front of the line, you may have to pay anyways. For women, tickets are typically around $25 and around $35 for men, but a guest list is still a good option regardless. You will have to either be an all-girl group or have an equal ratio of girls and guys to get in on a list. Make sure to follow all instructions from your VIP host regarding guest list entry. My best advice is to show up early and bring a bottle of water or cocktail in a disposable cup to tide you over while you wait.


Attire is Pool Club standard. Wear your Bikini/Swim trunks under your sundress or shorts. No offensive sayings or slogans. And nothing that is obviously torn up. Sandals, sneakers, and heels all seem to be just fine for the day. I usually like to keep it casual and wear a comfy dress that's quick to put on and take off that I can still walk through the casinos with and some wedges. This day I stuck to these unique ankle boots and a pink dress I got from Ross for like $7! Lockers are available to rent, and they have a coat check where you can check items that you didn't know you couldn't bring (Like selfie sticks) and your coat. I HIGHLY recommend a travel size sunscreen, lotion and sunshades. There are showers near the back bathrooms if you have any problems with chlorine or...you just like to be extra clean.

Music choice here is typically house/some form of EDM or a good top 40 mix from world-class DJs. Wynn Nightlife doesn't skimp when it comes to entertainment. Every DJ in their line up is a chart-topping entertainer. From Kygo to the Chainsmokers and Diplo. It's ALWAYS going to be a great day here. The bar is usual Vegas Entertainment prices $8 shots, $15 mixed drinks, $11 beers and hundreds for bottles with a Food and Beverage minimum for the tables, cabanas and day beds. Tip your service staff, please.


For me, Encore Beach Club is a MUST and had to be the first place I started Pool Season 2019. Final words of advice are, buy your tickets or table in advance bring your sunscreen and shades and HYDRATE! We are all adults and know what alcohol does to us, but drinking and being active out in the desert sun makes it something new. It is VITAL you get some water in between your rounds. Take care of your self and have fun! We see you, don't catch a Vegas L.

What to expect in July 2020: Las Vegas After Lock Down

Vegas is OPEN and ready to serve up your next vacation or staycation the way Only Vegas knows how. We are living in a much different time now, so here's what we can expect for a trip to Las Vegas in July.

First things first, masks are required in all public spaces through the state of Nevada per our latest directive (see specifics here). You will have to wear a mask when you are outside of your hotel room in all public spaces. You do not have to wear a mask when doing physical activity like working out, but you will need to wear one on the way to the gym and back. Same with the pool, you do not have to wear one while in the pool, but a mask is required everywhere else. Restaurants, bars, and lounges all have similar rules, masks will be needed while waiting in line to be seated/served but you do not have to wear a mask while eating and drinking. Social distancing is still a major priority so capacities have been limited to half of what we are used to and reservations are highly rec…

Watch Next: BLEACH Live Action on Netflix

BLEACH - Live Action Movie
Let's talk Netflix! I spend so much time streaming my favorite shows and movies it is absolutely crazy. I'm sure if Netflix and Hulu and Amazon Prime (yes I have all of them) decided to tell me how many hours a month I spend using their streaming services it would be embarrassing. So, I totally know what's poppin on the streaming services and am more than happy to help you find your next entertainment title! Today, I'm telling you enough to get you excited but not spoil BLEACH!

Bleach was originally a manga (I never read it) then it became a TV series aka an Anime. I am a HUGE fan of the series and have watched the whole thing like 3 times on crunchy roll (Yes, I have that too). If you decide you like the movie, I 100% recommend you watch the series. Let me reel in my fangirl and tell you the basics:

The main character, Ichigo is just a regular-degular 15 year old (Who looks NOTHING like a 15-year-old in the movie nor the anime) who can see …

Locals I Love: Asia Th3 MUA

Welcome back to another edition of Locals I Love! This week, I'm shouting out a special lady who helps make me feel beautiful whether I am actually sitting in her chair or watching her YouTube videos from home. I'm talking about the lovely Asia Th3 MUA.

Asia is a local M·A·C Cosmetics certified MUA, educator, creator, and influencer that I have been blessed to get Graced By a few times!

The reason Asia stands out to me so much as a local MUA I love is that she doesn't just have a single look that she gives to every client. She is an actual ARTIST. She seems to take her clients features and make her own work of art.


Not only is she gracing faces all over the Las Vegas Valley, but her Youtube videos also give future MUA's and current freelancers tips and lessons on becoming successful in their own businesses!

I am not the best at doing my own makeup, but her Youtube page has been helping me elevate my own makeup game! Watch this video to see what I mean:

Fan Girl: Vegas Golden Knights

My New Favorite Kind of Blade (Sorry Wesley)
OMG It's almost Knight Time! I have never been as into a sport as I am hockey right now! The Vegas Golden Knights came along and shattered expectations and goals in their inaugural season and I feel like I can reach out and touch hockey season right now since it is so close to upon us. I won't do a full play by play of the season (even though that's all we want to talk about now in the Valley) but I will direct you to my Twitter where I live tweet EVERY EMOTION, 0 filter while I'm having them. And yes, it is me mostly praising Fleury, the goal post, praying to the hockey Gods and appreciating...well everyone. LOL

I have become WILDLY superstitious since starting to watch VGK. I now HAVE GOT to have on a pair of pink flamingo socks! For those of you who don't know, we have a lovely Victory Flamingo that gets thrown onto the ice to get the energy right for some good gameplay and to celebrate a win. I'm honestly probab…

Throw Back: That one time I competed in a pageant

Once upon a time, what seems like a long time ago I decided I wanted to be a beauty queen. It was definitely an experience I will never forget and I finally have the chance to tell you all about it!

I've always known that I wanted to help people in some way, and one day it dawned on me if I had a crown that would definitely give me a much louder voice to speak on issues I thought were important. So, I went searching for what I thought was the best pageant for me and I landed on Miss Nevada USA 2016. The only thing I knew about pageants at this point was from the Miss Congeniality movie and what I heard about from my cousin's social media pages. So from that, I thought it was going to be a breeze...PSYCH! It was probably the most grueling process of self-discovery I've ever put myself through.

My first step was figuring out how much all of this was going to cost. For me, it was a ridiculous amount that I just wasn't going to be able to make at my day job in time for th…

Now Streaming: 'Legacies' on Netflix Seasons 1 and 2

I love a good supernatural drama series. I was all in on the 'Vampire Diaries' for a while, and when the 'Originals' came in with what felt like a more "grown-up" storyline from the beginning, I was instantly HOOKED! It had everything I needed in a supernatural drama, but when that ended I was left in a show hole. How do you even follow up on that epic storyline, but thank the bright minds at CW they made it happen with 'Legacies'.
With 'Legacies', we are tuning in to the life of Hope Mikaelson after the loss of her parents at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted ran by Alaric Saltzman who is firmly seated in our hearts from 'Vampire Diaries'. Alaric is the headmaster of the Salvatore School and is looking after his twin daughters who are the last living members of the Gemini Coven. This is exactly the drama series I needed to check into during this quarantine. The Salvatore School is home to the witch, werewolf and vampire yo…
