Bring 2010 in at City Center, First Class!

Finally! I have some documentation of the most anticipated opening in Las Vegas...What a fantastic way to celebrate the arrival of 2010, with the highest caliber of shopping and chefs in the world. Join me in a little tour! So sorry for the HUGE number of photos (all taken by me...the quality is not the highest, I haven't figured out my new camera yet),
but this is only half of what I took...and it is all so fun and exciting, I had to share...
I hope that you all have a wonderful New Year's Eve, surrounded by those that you love!

In all it's glory...

Peeking into Sage...we had the best Kumomoto oysters there, and the bar service was top notch...I highly recommend going!

The colourful floral carpet...


These water sculptures are so cool!









City Center has it's own monorail...




The Fireworks water fountain that explodes in different bolts of colour...




An entire maybe 80 foot long wall of pebbles
that water cascades down periodically...


The Elvis Shop outside of Cirque de Soleil's Elvis Show...

What an outfit! Fit for The King...

Restaurant #16 by Michael Mina...

Jean-George Vongerichten's latest...

Ristorante Sirio (Le Cirque). We had the most amazing mascarpone cheese and black truffle pizza there...

What would Las Vegas be without a buffet?


Entry to The Spa
A pop of brightness...

I would stay here in a heartbeat...
Happy 2010 to you all, and may we all have unlimited income to visit Crystals on a shopping extravaganza!

Snow in Las Vegas

What fun it is that we have snow 30 minutes away, up on Mount Charleston. There is even a ski resort...funny little bit of info many don't know about Las Vegas! We have alot of fun going up and sledding...and then we come home where we can admire the beauty of the snow covered mountains, without driving in it or shoveling!
Tomorrow I am off to City Center again...I went the other night, but need to take pictures in the day. It is absolutely unbelievable, down to every last little detail!
Mount Charleston

Our pup's first experience with snow...Loved it!

The Year Ahead...Some Calendar's to Prepare for 2010

I am a huge fan of Jo Bradford's photography, and was thrilled to see that she had come out with a limited edition desktop calendar of some of her prints...what a great way to have some of her art, and with each month hand signed, they are truly keepers! This photo does not do justice to the work, they are rich and deep, just beautiful ( I got it together early and nabbed one). Visit her shop here or her blog here.

The artwork is so divine in this calendar from France by The Nebulous Kingdom...see it and more of her artwork at her Etsy Shop here.
Print it yourself...how easy! I love the simplicity and primary colours here, perfect for a children's space. Get it from Printable Project here.
