Make Vegas Your Next Destination For Your Girls Trip

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

Make Vegas Your Next Destination For Your Girls Trip
Megan Martin

Since I have turned 21, last June, I have been to Vegas twice, both trips within five months of each other. Getting ready for my first trip, I didn't know if I would like the experience that comes with Las Vegas. Needless to say, my first Vegas experience was overall amazing and there were a few things that I wished I did but ended up doing it the second time.

My first trip to Vegas was in November of 2018. If you want to go to Vegas or enjoy going to Vegas, go after Thanksgiving and before Christmas, flights, and hotels are cheap and the weather was not hot but not cold either. I paid a total of $170 for my flight and hotel stay for four days and three nights.

I went with a couple of my friends who were able to get the time off. We had a blast and made decisions that made us say "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas." We got information for a club promoter which allowed us to get on the guest list for any climb we wanted to get into, which lead to us getting free bottle service for the night. Let me just tell you, someone paid $70 for FOUR Fireball shots, I mean I could get four Fireball shots for less than $20 at a college bar in Iowa City.

During the four days and three nights, we went to Jewel Nightclub at the Aria hotel, Omnia Nightclub at Cesear's Palace and One Oak Nightclub. All great clubs, great music and if you are a person who likes to dance, just book your ticket and get yourself to Vegas already, even for a short weekend. We experienced Fremont Street, took in the cover bands that played, ziplined, rented bicycles and rode around Vegas and visited the Stratosphere and rode the rides at the top. I did gamble but just spent two dollars in the slot machines, but I lost it. Needless to say, gambling is not for me.

After my first trip, I reflected on the fours days spent there. I enjoyed the time and the experience I had gotten and was ready to go back in a heartbeat.

The second time around was after I moved to Utah. Being a five to six-hour drive away from Vegas is a pretty nice location to be in. My roommate and I drove down after work on Friday. We got in just before 10 p.m. My roommate had gotten ready on the drive down, all I had to do was change into the outfit I had planned and swipe on some eye shadow, mascara, and lipstick. I contacted a Club Promoter I met and we went to the Hakassan Nightclub.

The whole reason that my roommate and I made the trip to Vegas was to attend the Magic Mike Live Show. I seriously recommend going. The show was amazing, the men were hot and you'll have the time of your life if you choose some good seats.

The experience that I received from the show was a free foot rub, a red rose tossed to me, and some close action.

The second time around, I got to experience more of Vegas during the day time. We walked around Las Vegas strip. Took in the hustle and bustle of the city filled with worker and tourists. We watched the fountain show at the Bellagio, visited M&M World and other stores along the strip.

I am still waiting to get a group of my closest girlfriends together to go spend a few days in Vegas.

Now get your friends, get dressed up and have a wild time in Sin City.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
