Well hello.

SO I went to Vegas for a night this weekend. If you follow me on Snapchat ( I swear Snapchat is not like my sponsor, I just love it because it’s raw, real, & pretty much the shit ), then you know I had quite the excursion actually getting there.

I, eer, missed my flight.

Boy did I feel like an asshole because I’m constantly making fun of Michael’s INTENSE promptness. IN MY DEFENSE THOUGH, the TSA line was a mile long ( …I may or may not have arrived 30 minutes before my flight though ). In typical Lauryn fashion, I ended up taking the 6 PM flight instead of the originally scheduled 11 AM.

Michael was working in Vegas for a convention for a few days so I flew out for the night to meet him & our friends…AKA I just went out for a little fun.

But wait. Can we talk about Vegas style? Is it just me or is it very difficult to pick an outfit in Vegas— IS ANYONE WITH ME?

Let’s face it…it’s hard to look effortless in a tighter than tight bandage dress, like…clearly, you tried.

I hate when outfits look like I tried too hard. Especially when we’re eating full-on pasta & dessert before going out.

Highly annoying, no?

Anyway, I opted for something simpler, but also sexy: a superrrr low cut V jumpsuit. Some added touches: a very long, thin ‘boob’ necklace, stick straight hair, & extremely high pumps…because it’s Vegas, so shit, I had to add a little showgirl pizzazz to my outfit.

We ended up going to a club, which is not really my favorite thing on the planet. It’s nothing personal to anyone who likes clubs but I like to have conversations ( GRANDMA ) & you cannot hear a word with techno music blaring in your ears. I’m also not going to lie, I’m that person fully wearing tiny orange ear plugs ( carry them in your clutch, trust me ).

Maybe I’m getting too old for Las Vegas?

{ today, working off blueberry pancakes }

But a little gambling, vodka sodas with extra lemons, & the best pancakes in the world for breakfast are 100% worth the trip.

Really though, The Wynn’s pancakes ARE WORTH THE ENTIRE TRIP ACTUALLY, if we’re being honest. They’re these blueberry pancakes there that my girlfriend, Elena introduced me to at Tableau & they’re literally sex x a million. Nothing better. Especially when you’re recovering from a vodka soda/club music hangover.

What’s your Vegas experience been like? I know you guys allllll have Vegas stories. Come on, make me laugh. Ok, go ; ).

Hi guys!

Coming at cha from Vegas ( << well, technically I’m home now, but I wrote this last night!! )!

Currently: sitting at a restaurant alone drinking a sparkling water & eating a margarita flatbread with chilli flakes, extra ( extra ) lemon, & handfuls of basil…while Michael plays Black Jack ( he gets very in to his Black Jack, like it’s intense ).

Nothing better than a pizza, my computer, and some alone time— ha!

One of my favorite things ever is sitting alone on my computer in a restaurant. I know we’ve discussed this subject before but is anyone else with me on this one?

Ok anyway, we’ve been in Vegas since Saturday & it’s been super fun ( highlight: I got a massage & the lady literally stretched me in every which way— I mean, at one point I think my legs were over my head? I may or may not have been in a naked-ass pretzel? I don’t know, it’s kind of a blur, I guess, but I’m super loosened up now so it’s a WIN, lol ).

There’s just one problem I have with Las Vegas: THE CIGARETTE SMOKE. My throat/eyes/head are killing me. I’m dehydrated x 10 & my skin feels nasty.

But really, is it necessary to smoke endless Marlboro Reds while eating a filet at the casino bar? I’m not a smoker so the harsh cig smell is making me gag every second. Not a fan of the whole being able to smoke inside. Anyone with me?

Anyway that’s my spiel for the day. Happy Tuesday & viva Las Vegas!

– Lauryn, xx

I’m one of those people that’s constantly taking notes in my phone.

I’ll wake up in the middle of the night & grab my phone ( which really shouldn’t be by head…I know, I know ) to write a thought down.

It’s not like a journal…or diary. Just more of a one word/sentence note.

Although it’s a cluster-F ( I mean, if someone stole my phone they would think I’m crazy ), for me the short list system works well.

Anyway over the past month I’ve compiled a list in my phone of ten things to do before the new year:

1.} Spend more time in the kitchen & less time on the phone {!!!}.

2.} Take ‘the Nanz’ ( AKA my grandma ) to DryBar. Because who doesn’t love a blowout + champs?!

3.} Buy these sweat pants ( def in ‘green mud’ ) because they look seriously delicious for cold weather ( I know, right? Cold in SD? I’m such a pussy! ).

4.} Help out with Chihuahua Rescue of San Diego.

5.} Finish furnishing my patio…ASAP- it needs serious help!

6.} Read this book.

7.} Host a gingerbread house decorating party.

8.} Do a full puzzle. But like, a cool, rad puzzle. Maybe one of Pixy’s face.

9.} Finally bake my skinny cinnamon roll recipe.

10.} Wear a lot of bad ass fingerless gloves. Preferably black/leather…shocker.

What’s on your winter to-do list? Anything I gotta try? LMK.

xx//L

P.S. I read each comment you guys post…it’s a happy part of the morning : ). x.

Jordan & I have created another sexy, little workout playlist! This list of tunes can be used while you’re working out, partying, or both ( …because hey! Dancing while you’re holding a champs glass is technically working out. )!

To become a subscriber to ‘TSC’s Champagne Dance Party Playlist’ click here or find me under ‘Lauryn Evarts’ on Spotify [ other sassy fitness playlists can be found here & here & here & here ]. Oh! & for anyone who can’t access Spotify, you can find a visual of the list here ; ).

Any songs that I need to add ASAP?

Cheers!

So. I’m reading the book Wheat Belly.

Heard of it?

If you haven’t, check it out. It’s pretttty interesting.

The theory ( << & I haven’t formed an opinion yet ) is that eating any type of wheat adds chunk-a-de-chunk ( well, these are my words; the book states that it adds belly fat…).

Essentially the author says that wheat is the reason American’s are fat. Well, I’m going to do a little testy, westy- AKA go wheat-free for a few days & see what happens.

I’ll keep you all updated on my conclusion. Supposedly I’m set to experience higher energy levels, weight loss, & glowing, sparkling skin.

Can’t wait.

Some of the other perks: eliminating wheat can cure diseases & rashes…hmmm. I’m more about moderation, moderation, moderation, but it’s worth a try?

Happy Monday,
