Margaritaville, Las Vegas NV, USA : I went here last year for Cinco De Mayo and I have got to say, it was an absolute blast. Margaritaville is a must if you are in Vegas wanting great drinks and a good time. When I arrived at Margaritaville I didn’t realize what a big deal it was but now that I have been I can see why. Our bartender, Billy, was able to bring out the party in all of us girls. It is an awesome atmosphere, and everyone hanging out here were obviously having a good time too. The bartender, Billy, recommended we have FYRCHOS ,which was a great experience in and of itself. Overall, it was great, they were able to accommodate my large party without a problem and the vibe in there was just what we were looking for. Don’t go to Vegas without coming here!

Hotel Café, Los Angeles CA, USA : I have seen many artists at Hotel Café and I love this place! It is a hole-in-the-wall venue in Hollywood, but the artists featured here have never let me down! They have great drinks at reasonable prices, cheap cover charges, and an intimate setting with great décor. However, since it is an intimate setting, I suggest you come when the doors open because they have few tables and you might not be able to get a seat. Even if you can’t get a seat it is pretty much a general admission place and sometimes that is great because you just want to move with the music.

The Grove, Los Angeles CA, USA : The Grove has got to be the best shopping mall in Los Angeles, it is attached to the amazing Farmer’s Market on 3rd Street and Fairfax. The Grove caters to a high-end clientele with stores like Michael Kors, Nordstrom’s and Guess by Marciano! It is a fantastic way to spend an afternoon if you are looking to splurge at the Apple Store, or just wanting to wine & dine at Morel’s French Steakhouse, or maybe you want to catch a movie at their incredible theater. Whatever it is you may want to do, this place is perfect for romantic date nights and so, so, so much more.

The Beverly Center, Los Angeles CA, USA : The Beverly Center is all about shopping till you drop. It is a mall that caters to a variety of demographics in the West Hollywood area. This mall is quite a sight to see. It is just rows of rows of floors of floors of shops. It is any girls’ complete dream. I love going here on a chill Friday afternoon with my girlfriends to catch up on the latest fashions and to, “shop till I drop!” This is the best mall in Los Angeles and one of my favorites. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to have the full shopping experience in Los Angeles. It is a must!

Nobu, Malibu CA, USA : We had such an amazing time eating here on Mother’s Day. First, I recommend trying the Omakase. It is the best way to sample all of the best of Nobu, there are two different sizes depending on how much fish you want and both sizes include 8 courses. We went all out here with the large 8 course Omakase and I cannot tell you how much it was enjoyed. My mother had a fantastic time. This is true Japanese dining and recommend to anyone who loves sushi, because Nobu Matsushisa has perfect the art of Peruvian and Japanese Style to create a fantastic dining experience.

Lawry’s The Prime Rib, Beverly Hills CA, USA : This is THE place for Prime Rib. Easily, Lawrys The Prime Rib is the best I’ve ever had. I am a huge meat-eater/lower so going to Lawry’s was such an incredible experience for me. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. My biggest tip is to skip the appetizers, dinner is big enough and make sure you have a good amount of cash on you because, this place can get pricey between the meal and drinks. Their bar is also incredible. I hope the next time you are in Beverly Hills you get a chance to experience the greatness that is Lawry’s The Prime Rib!

Wynn Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas NV, USA : By far Wynn Hotel Casino is one of the most incredible in the Las Vegas area. It is exceptionally grand and makes you feel like the true Queen (or King) that you are. The room was perfect and the wait staff/service at this place exceptionally attentive. Everywhere you look there are breathtaking fresh flowers and the casino is not overly crowded which allows you to play at your leisure. This is a perfect combination for winning big at their tables. I know we did! They work hard here to make sure you feel special, there is no better place in Vegas than Wynn!

Spago, Beverly Hills CA, USA : My boyfriend and I went here for date night and although it is super expensive, I have got to say, it was worth every penny. The whole experience from start to finish was just that an EXPERIENCE. We were comfortably seated, enjoyed some drinks, had dinner followed by desert and ultimately had an amazing night. It really was exactly what I was looking for/wanted for date night. The wait staff was attentive an exceptionally helpful. The staff really work hard there and made us feel like royalty. I would highly recommend Spago to any guys out there looking to impress their girls!

Las Vegas Strip, Las Vegas, NV, USA : Il Mulino New York in Caesars Palace Forum Shops has got to be one of my favorite fine dining places in Las Vegas. Il Mulino really can roll out the red carpet and make you feel like a complete celebrity. Not only do they have great service but, the food itself is to absolutely die for. Last visit, we shared ravioli and lasagna followed by dessert. They also have quite the extensive Italian wine list. It was impressive and I am sort of a wine snob, so I know how important great wine can be. I was very pleased with their selection of wines. All in all I always recommend Il Mulino because it is just so fantastic.

Plazzo Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas NV, USA : Firstly, the suites are bigger than my first apartment! The Plazzo Hotel Casino has to be my new favorite place to stay when I am in Vegas! The front desk is always well staffed and check-in goes very quickly and smoothly from there, I will spare you my gushing thoughts about the rooms and move onto the actual casino! The Casino here is gorgeous and they have all the best games here. I feel like this could be a lucky place where someone could win obscene amounts of cash. They also have fine dining options, which are a no-brainer. I feel like I could stay here forever and never leave.

Las Vegas Roller Coaster, Las Vegas NV, USA : I feel like this attraction is necessary for any trill seekers out there like me. I know it was like the cherry on top of my trip. The Las Vegas Roller Coaster itself can be a huge wait but the ride is well worth it. Not only is it exhilarating the things you see as you pass by are indescribable. It is like you are transported to a very unique vantage point of Las Vegas that can only be obtained when you ride the roller coaster! Do not leave Vegas without trying this thing out. It is the absolute best thing to hit Vegas.

The Robertson, West Hollywood CA, USA : The Robertson is one of the coolest multi-level, multi-room club in West Hollywood that I’ve been to! The tables for bottle service are right outside in the patio when you walk in and the main dance floor is right upstairs. Behind that is the second dance floor that has a much more intimate setting with more tables for bottle service. Underneath the main floor is the third and final dance floor which is my favorite because not only is there couches and a bar, its also glow in the dark with cool art that also glows! I really love this place

Daikokuya, Downtown Los Angeles CA, USA : Daikokuya is one of the most famous ramen places in LA and rightfully so! The only ramen that I’ve ever had that was better than this was in Japan. The broth is so flavorful followed by tender noodles. However, the broth is not as fattening or salty as other broths I have tried. The only downside is that the lines are crazy long! Be prepared to wait a while unless you decide to go at an “off” time. I would highly recommend this place to all my girlfriends, because it really is this fantastic. It is amazing and completely incredible.

Rock N Rileys, West Hollywood CA, USA : I went here for a friends birthday and it was the perfect spot. Rock N Rileys has a lounge upstairs for social gatherings like birthdays where we went to escape the crowds downstairs while still enjoying the amazing atmosphere of the bar. One of the best Irish bars I’ve ever been to and I even got to see some Irish celebrities there! Even if you don’t go for a birthday, I would suggest that you reserve a spot upstairs because it gets extremely packed! Aside from getting pretty packed this place is great. I think everyone who is anybody goes here and you should too!

Ninethirty, Westwood CA, USA : Ninethirty restaurant is definitely Westwood’s best kept secret! It is inside the W hotel so a lot of people don’t realize it is there. They also have a backyard version where you can sit by the pool and drink, or even rent out one of the cabanas for unlimited bottle service. It is a five star restaurant but a good deal for the stuff they offer! Its also one of the best happy hours I've ever been to. Be sure to try their wines; sometimes they offer free tastings of $100 a glass wines! They also have a “reward” card for a discount!

O’ briens Irish Pub, Santa Monica CA, USA : • Such a great place to come with friends because it’s on the street with a lot of bars so before or after this, go to all the other bars right next to it! I personally love O Briens Irish Pub the best because everyone goes there to really drink! Who else knows how to drink better than the Irish?! It also has a great happy hour and such a wide selection of imported beers and alcohols. Also, there’s a place for dancing inside and lots of tables for birthdays and large groups. I would highly recommend this place to all my friends.

House of Blues Anaheim, Disneyland Drive, Anaheim, CA, United States : • Yes this is a concert hall. Yes you probably want to rather hear about a club or bar. But guess what, this has an amazing bar inside! Also, they always have really great performers, so if a dance artist plays here, it’s an instant club because it’s so packed! They also have food so it is like an all-in-one type of place! House of Blues Anaheim is also located in the Disneyland shops so before you go here, get some shopping in! In my opinion, it’s like a girls paradise because it’s completely unexpected. I know it caught me by surprise and I absolutely love this place.
