Rehab pool party in Las Vegas is the most famous pool party in the state. If my sources are correct, it was the very first party of its kind to be held in Vegas, paving the way for many others like it but that just aren’t quite the same.

It’s held at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, which is where Joe and me stayed on our trip over there. It used to be exclusively a Sunday thing, but now it’s held on Saturdays too. When asking the concierge which day he thought best for us to go, he said, ‘it depends if you want Crazy, or Crazy Crazy’. We decided to stick with just one Crazy and attend on the Saturday. We weren’t entirely sure we could handle two whole Crazy’s.

As promised, the party was insane. It started out quietly, gradually getting louder and, you guessed it, Crazier as the day wore on. The music was mainly hip hop, accompanied with lots of twerking from the ladies in the pool. Later on, a rapper called Schoolboy Q arrived and performed.

Joe and me just lay back and watched everything unfold with our huge Rehab drink cups in hand (which aint cheap, let me tell you). At one point, Joe did get told off by a lifeguard for picking me up and chucking me in the air while in one of the multiple pools – Crazy, right? The party goes on for hours, but by the end I’d had a little bit too much to drink and Joe had to escort me to our room to recover. He didn’t last much longer than me!

The look I went for on this occasion is what I’d describe as ‘Space Mermaid’. I was feeling…can you guess? Crazy!

Hello! This post is introducing the outfit I wore on the 10 hour flight to Las Vegas. I wanted to be comfortable, so I thought this would do nicely. I’d never been on a long haul flight before, but it was very comfortable and we had a load of recent films to watch. They kept us well fed for free too – it was a little bit like having a duvet day on a plane! I did get a little hot at one point, but it’s better than having to pull out a denim shorts wedgie every 5 minutes, right? The only thing that bothered me was that Joe and me weren’t seated next to each other, because we booked with Expedia rather than through Virgin. Still a great flight though!

 I’d lusted after a gorgeous pair of bellbottoms for a while, and finally found some on a clothing site based in the USA. They were worth the wait for delivery! The long black cardi thingy – what do you call it? I’m not sure. Anyway, it was a last minute purchase and I’m glad I did. I wore it a few times and thought it added a nice hippy/witchy edge to an outfit.
