Hotel Review: Bellagio, Las Vegas

Probably THE most iconic hotel on the Vegas strip, the Bellagio is famous for its elegance, luxury and dancing fountains. And I’m sure we’d all love to stay there too, right?

It’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to go – the Bellagio that is, not Vegas. If I could just spend one night there, I’d be a happy gal.

So you can imagine how thrilled I was when Lee gifted me the booking confirmation for Christmas!

It did not dissapoint.

  • If lockdown has taught me anything it’s that I definitely want a cat.
⠀
Maybe not right now, maybe not next year, but I am 100% planning on being a kitty momma in the future.
⠀
I think the moment of realisation hit me last night.
⠀
I was all tucked up in bed reading when Lee called me.
⠀
‘Come here,’ he said. ‘Come look at this’
⠀
‘I’m in bed!’ I shouted back.
⠀
‘Like in bed?’
⠀
‘Yes, in bed!’
⠀
‘Just come here.’
⠀
‘This better be worth it,’ I grumbled. And begrudgingly climbed of bed.
⠀
He was peeping out the window of our first floor hallway, the one that looks down on our driveway.
⠀
Lo and behold there was a Mexican standoff going on between the neighbour’s cat sat on their wall and a second cat sprawled out on the tarmac next to our car.
⠀
Which escalated into some friendly play fighting...I think it was friendly.
⠀
It lasted all of about 30 seconds and was definitely worth it 🙈😂

  • 2 FREAKIN’ YEARS
⠀
We bought our forever home 2 years ago today! And oh my gosh it has been the biggest, scariest and most expensive adventure EVER, but I’ve loved every second!
⠀
⠀
This place is our haven, our palace, our kingdom and it’s perfect 😍 here’s to many more years 🍻
⠀
PHOTOS: a few of the rooms we’ve done already: the living room, the guest bedroom, the kitchen, the first floor hallway and the downstairs toilet. Not featured is my home office which has been overrun with WFH and is a bit chaotic 🤦‍♀️😂 #adventureswithnatasha #myhouseandhome #makingahouseahome #howihome #pocketofmyhome #homestyle #homeinspo #myhomevibe #beautifulhomesofinstagram #myhomevibes #storyofmyhome #realhomesofinstagram #heyhomehey #homedecoration #homedecorating #homedecorinspo #homedecorlovers #interiordecor #interiordecoratingideas #decorlovers #decorlove #interiordesigninspiration #interiorideas #decorationideas #decorideas #decoratingideas #decorinspiration #housedecoration #homeinteriordesign
  • Thank god the week is almost over. It’s been a tough one. Work has been crazy busy and I just feel like we need some time to breathe. Roll on the bank holiday weekend 🙌
⠀
The weather has taken a turn for the worst so I don’t envision drinking fancy cocktails in the garden but hopefully we can start finishing some of the five million jobs we’ve half started during lockdown 🤷‍♀️
⠀
Plus a family quiz on Sunday 💪 we’ve been doing pub quizzes every week for the last 6 weeks and it’s so much fun!
⠀
What are your weekend plans?
⠀
PHOTO: we visited The Silo Hotel in Cape Town after watching the BBC’s Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond the Lobby series and it did not disappoint. This place was amazing! With incredible views of Table Mountain ⛰ 😍

  • I won’t lie, there was a wobble yesterday.
⠀
It only last for about two minutes but I did unashamedly cry on my own in a dark room for a moment.
⠀
It happens. I mean, I’m a crier, so it really isn’t anything new in this house.
⠀
Sometimes panic levels just get too much.
⠀
Considering it’s #mentalhealthawarenessweek, it seemed well timed. Today I’m feeling upbeat, but that might not last. It can be very temperamental sometimes. For now, I’m going to daydream about beaches and bikinis 👙and hope the positivity lasts 😍

  • Take me back to Vegas where we wandered the strip until the small hours, marvelling at the weird and wonderful.

*may be slightly tipsy in this photo. I can’t remember if this was before or after I befriended a giant Hershey’s Kisses

  • 😜 Really, this should have been #TonguetasticTuesday, so instead I’m calling it #StickItToThemWednesday 😂
⠀
The working weeks seem to fly by at the moment, I almost can’t believe it’s Wednesday already.
⠀
If you’re looking for some escapism, my last African Safari post is now live on my blog, complete with photos like this one.
⠀
Pop quiz time: how tall is a giraffe? 🦒
⠀
Believe it or not, we almost missed seeing this guy. His markings are literally the PERFECT camouflage!
