Last five frivolous purchases.

Hallo meine Lieben,

I am back from Vegas! We had such an awesome time and I have so much to tell you and so many pictures to show you. I am still a little confused to be back in reality without all the neon lights and the people who want to sell you some strippers so I guess for today I'll just stick to Random Thursday, try to wind down a bit and sort all the pictures and stories and tell you about the trip in the next days. 

I am linking up with these lovely ladies.






And this is the topic. 


1. A trip to Vegas.

Well I guess that was the biggest purchase we did this year. We spent a whole week in Vegas which was so much fun. When we checked in at 1 am they told us that they were overbooked and that they would have to give us the Penthouse suite. It was nice to spend some time in a suite which bathroom was bigger than my first apartment. 

2. Tickets to Vegas shows.

It was our first time in Vegas so we decided to go and see some of the shows. We saw Criss Angel, Mystere and Penn & Teller. 
Penn & Teller are definitely my favorites. Their show is so smart and funny. Best thing was that we had the chance to take some pictures with them and talk to them after the show. Yeah, Teller talked too. He even called me "dear".  Penn called everybody "boss" which was a little weird but also kind of cute. 
Please excuse my stupid face expression. 



3. A dress I did not wear in Vegas because it was too cold. 

I found a really cute black studded dress which was 75% off. I thought it would be perfect to wear it in Vegas. But what can I say. It was way too cold for me to wear a dress. I ended up wearing my winter coat, boots and a scarf. 

4. A lip balm.

I have never been to a Sephora store before. There is no such store in my area and the chain does not have stores in Germany at all. So I was pretty excited when I saw the store at the Forum Shops at Caesar Palace (definitely worth seeing). 
I ended up buying a vegan lip balm. Which smells like roses. That's it.

5. Two books.

I am currently reading the Carl Morck series by Jussi Adler Olsen. After I finished the second book I went to the bookstore to get the third book of the series. When I saw the fourth and last (so far) standing right next to the third book I just could not resist. I had to buy both of them. They are just too good. 

Please tell me about your last purchases! And have a wonderful day!

  2. Upgraded to a penthouse suite? Vegas doesn't get much better that that!

    And I loooooove Sephora. I got all my cosmetics there when I lived in Prague, I miss it so much in Germany!! I have hope that they might come to Germany someday. Urban Outfitters just opened up here in Nürnberg at Christmastime and I've been trying hard to avoid going in there because I know their home decor stuff is awesome and I don't want to spend all my hard-earned Euros! :)

      it is sad that there is no sephora in germany. i really like that store and i think i could easily spen hours in there.
      urban outfitters is great too. unfortunately that stuff is pretty expensive, isn't it? i have only been in there once but loved the stuff!

  6. They're finally opening a Sephora nearby but it's still going to be a bit of a drive, so I doubt I'll get in there. Sounds like you had an awesome trip to Vegas!

  13. Vegas was one of our frivolous purchases too. Unfortunately we didnt make it to a Penn & Teller show but glad you guys did. I think it's so rad you took a photo with him.

    Haha, I just returned a skirt & blouse I bought for Vegas but didnt end up wearing. Em & I spent most of our time at Sephora, it was so much fun. It's hard to believe you went in there & only came out with that little lip balm, bravo.
