Vegas Vacation: June Travel Essentials *Pool Season Guide*

It's summertime in the city of sin! The time of the year in Las Vegas that we have been waiting for! Summer sun, pools all day and all night long, day drinking minus the judgment, and everything you love about Vegas! Here's my list of travel essentials that I keep on hand and that my travel clients have been requesting so that you can have a smoother trip (or stay if you're a local). When you are packing your pool bag for any occasion here is what you need to keep the day on a high note.

Pool Day Essentials:

A day out in the sun is one of the best ways to spend your Vegas Vacation! Whether that's at the pool club, your hotel pool, or your own backyard, here are my favorite must have's for every pool day.

๐ŸŒŸKeep it cute with a fashionable beach tote you can carry. This is for when you're planning a day at the pool with your tribe so that one of you can carry all the essentials. You won't want an entire tote at the pool club unless you have a table/cabana/day bed or are willing to pay $50+ for a locker/bag check.


I like this bag because it's WATERPROOF. All those mesh and drawstring bags are mad cute and I love them, but it just takes ONE TIME for your stuff to get soaked for it to not be worth it anymore. I keep a waterproof bag in my trunk now at all times for exactly this reason. 
If you are going to the pool club, you won't want to carry around a big bag so everyone can carry their own things with a small waterproof waist bag like this one from amazon:


๐ŸŒŸSpeaking of waterproof, keep a few of these waterproof bags with you for your electronics too. It can double as a to go wallet too and add your ID, cards, and money to keep everything in one simple place. A ziplock bag with the double lock or zipper works just fine too, and who cares who's judging how fancy your plastic is *queue hair flip*

๐ŸŒŸ Take care of that skin! Make sure you are COVERED in sunscreen at all times. The desert sun hits different, I burn when I forget sunscreen so no one is safe! Here is the one I got to try recently from Influenster that I have been keeping next to the door to apply before I leave.


๐ŸŒŸ Messes happen. I don't know what it is about summertime and pool season that make random messes happen much more often. Maybe it's just me and my love of life-sized frozen daiquiris...or everyone else in the city loving these and spilling them EVERYWHERE, but I have NEVER regretted being prepared. These wet wipes are my current go to.

๐ŸŒŸLike I said earlier, the sun out here hits different. You have to protect yourself, especially if you're planning on spending the day out in it. Keep your eyes protected with my favorite new line of sun shades.

These come in like 9 different polarized shade colors. They are gorgeous! Pick up a different color for each person in your squad!

๐ŸŒŸThis one is a summer time essential for sure! You have to have the summertime vibes floppy vacation hat! It gives you an automatic vacation, carefree vibe that we all need at the pool. It signals everyone else, "Oh I'm on VACATION vacation!" and I'm sure it helps trigger actual vacation hormones in your body (lol )

This is it! Make sure you tag me on Instagram @NikkiOnVegas when you are lounging out at the pool or taking a day out on the town so I can see how you're living your Vegas Life! And send me a tweet with your Vegas questions, comments, concerns. Send me an email if you are thinking about planning your Las Vegas trip and want me to help you make sure you're at the hottest spots and have the best time.

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

My Netflix Obsession: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

I am loving that Netflix has original movies and series! Right now I am all caught up in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and am very impatiently waiting for the release info on seasons 3 and 4! Let's talk all about why this is SUCH a binge-able flick and YOU should be just as excited to catch up! So, I went into CAOS without even knowing what I was getting myself into. I thought it was a Sabrina the Teenage witch via Melissa Joan Heart spin off/reboot/remake situation...I had NO idea Archie Comics had an entire dark world that spawned my childhood fave...because I would have been obsessed YEARS ago. They took something that was sweet, innocent and wholesome, added the actual devil and a dash of sexy and I've been horrified through every episode! The series keeps all our Sabrina favorites, Sabrina herself, Harvey, Hilda and Zelda, and my always favorite Salem but with a twist and gives us some new favorites in the Weird Sisters, Ambrose Spellman and Nicholas Scratch.

This is the perfect outdoor festival time of year for Vegas if the wind stays calm. Day N&#

I'M BACK!! 2021 - VEGAS - TWITCH - AND BEYOND

  Hello everyone and WELCOME BACK to the Nikki On Vegas Blog! I am SO happy to be back and have so much to update you on!  I have been away for a LONG WHILE and wanted to come back with an update on all things NikkiOnVegas. Last time I was here we were talking about my Disney+, Netflix, and Hulu favorites, What's going on in Vegas, and how the death of George Floyd and resulting Black Lives Matter protests, national response and more was affecting me personally. So let's dig right back in on all that plus what I've been up to since the last time we spoke... VEGAS: We've definitely been on a wild ride. As a city built on tourism, we had a HARD time with the shutdown and now trying to re-build...but good news Vegas lovers - All signs point to a rapidly returning Vegas! It's definitely different now, as we've got to do our part to keep everyone safe but it is still VERY Vegas. Social Distancing and masks are very much enforced and minimized capacity has been strict

Throw Back Thursday: Let's Go Sailing

Carnival Cruise - Ensenada, Mexico Around this time last year, I went on my first cruise. And now I'm obsessed! I've always loved vacations, to the point that I spent most (if not all) of my free time helping anyone I could have the vacation of their dreams. This time around, I was taking the vacation.  My Beautiful Mom and our comp breakfast I was SO busy living it up on the ship that I totally forgot to take pictures of all the super amazing things going on. There was ALWAYS something going on. We didn't have a single bored moment, or even any downtime if we didn't want it. We took complete and total advantage of all the free food. I was pregnant at the time, so I was ALWAYS hungry lol. The ship had me covered. There was a burger bar, a buffet-style arrangement, pizza, and every night there was a fancy dinner setup. There were live shows, like 2 different nightclubs, there was a karaoke night, live music all over the place. It was just amazing!

My Netflix Obsession: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 3!

I feel like I've been waiting for this to drop FOREVER!!! I've been battling a touch of insomnia so I was MORE than pleased to tune in to Part 3 of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina the moment it dropped on January 24th and here's why YOU should be just as obsessed. I'll keep the spoilers to a minimum, but DEFINITELY finish Part 2 before you go on. Netflix Ladies and Gents, the wait is finally over (kind of) as we get to settle in for a binge-a-thon with our new favorite witch, Sabrina Spellman. Here's the preview: So, we know we left off Part 2 of CAOS with Nabrina (Nick Scratch and Sabrina, End Game) in a tough situation to get out of! Nick did the most honorable thing and used his OWN BODY as a prison for Sabrina's not so loving father, Satan. They then sent the body prison that is Nick to Hell with its new ruler Lilith. Part 2 was such a whirlwind, and they started Part 3 NO DIFFERENTLY! We pick right up into Sabrina and her closest friend
