Las Vegas Travel Diary

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Before we finish up with my NYFW round up and begin with my London Fashion Week recap, I wanted to take a few days to tell you all about my recent West Coast Road Trip ! If you are following me on Instagram, you probably already know what I have been up to over the month of October but since I got back from the U.S., I've been receiving tons of emails about my trip, questioning me on what I liked and what I disliked in each city I visited. I'm glad to take a moment to share with you my most cherished memories from those two weeks on the U.S. West coast and a few tips and travel advice for those coast to coast trips !

The first city we visited and flew-in from Montreal was none other than Sin City itself; Las Vegas ! Now this was my very first time in Las Vegas and Karl's third or fourth so I basically told him that I wanted to take it all in and make the most out of it since we only had 24 hours over there. As soon as we landed, we picked up the car we had previously rented for the whole trip and headed straight to our Hotel, ideally located on the Strip. Now, I'm not saying that in order to have fun you MUST stay at one of those fancy and luxurious hotels on Las Vegas Blvd. but it is definitely part of the Las Vegas experience, if you ask me. Karl and I, were lucky enough to be guests of the sumptuous Wynn Hotel for the night and truly had the best time ever ! I'll tell you more about this tomorrow ;)

In Las Vegas, I had the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful haircare experience at the Claude Baruk Salon (located inside the Wynn Hotel!) with Claude himself, international trendsetter & managing director of the Wynn Las Vegas award-wining salons. Part of that experience included trying out for the first time, L'Oréal Professionnel's innovative in-salon straightening and smoothing treatment, the Steam Pod, which has only been marketed in Europe at this time and therefore, the Claude Baruk salons happen to be the only places in North America who can provide these high-profile hair services to their clientele. A must of every stay in Las Vegas, in my opinion !

Another experience I truly enjoyed while in Vegas was our five-stars diner at one of the Wynn's fine dining restaurants, Andrea's. I believe I have never been so well received in such a gastronomic institution and that evening at Andrea's definitely was one of the highlights of this whole West Coast Road Trip for me. I absolutely cannot wait to tell you more about it ;) On the morning after, the Hotel extended our culinary experience by having us at Tableau, another restaurant of their's, for breakfast. Tableau caters, among other delicious things, an extensive list of green juices, all of it being just perfect for early mornings (we had to wake up extra early to get on the road in order to get to Phoenix, Arizona, in time for the Cardinals vs. Redskins game!). Guess you'll have to stay put for this one as well… ;)

Happy Sunday everyone !

In a nutshell…

Airline company 
United Airlines. One of my first picks when it comes to traveling to the United States or to the United Kingdom. Plus, their Mileage Plus United reward program really is profitable if, like myself, you are a frequent traveler !


Wynn & Encore at Wynn Las Vegas. Karl and I stayed a the newest resort of the Wynn family, the Encore tower where awaited us attentive service and unparalleled luxury. An exclusive entrance, complimentary breakfast for two and twice daily maid service are just a few of the highlights at Encore Tower Suites.


Hair Salon
Claude Baruk Salon at Encore. The Wynn property owns two salons both managed by the acclaimed French hairdresser (his two first salons in North America!). Experience the culmination of treatment and well-being with a private hair spa ritual that will restore hair, body and mind.


Andrea's. Andrea’s at Encore was voted as one of the country’s hottest dining spots in the OpenTable Diner’s Choice Awards. Chef Joseph Elevado combines hip Asian dining with a sexy atmosphere. His menu features Wagyu beef and lobster roll, NY Strip Steak with Wasabi demi glacé, and five spice garlic lobster. Enjoy the delicious beats and social atmosphere as you dine overlooking the pool of Encore Beach Club.


Tableau. The restaurant offers an elegant twist on coast-to-coast American favorites. The seasonal menu caters to breakfast and lunch featuring market-fresh ingredients while also being available each evening for private events. Whether you’re dining indoors or poolside in the sun, Tableau is a great place to relax. For a limited time, when being a guest of the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, enjoy complimentary breakfasts at Tableau.
