Matchy Matchy in Vegas

I had not mentally prepared myself for the throes of the hot, hot heat in Vegas and when Day 2 rolled around, I had to get my ass outside for the iHeart Music Festival Village where performers like Iggy Azalea and Meghan Trainor performed. I got this cute little crop top and shorts set to wear for both the daytime and nighttime festivities. 
I met Fergie that evening in wet n wild’s hospitality suite, I think I both hugged and shook her hand? It was a blur. And then I headed off to the second night of the festival and basically lived the dream of aunt and niece by seeing One Direction perform. For me, it was more of an anthropology experiment, watching how people reacted to these bands. Tears, screaming, all of that was immensely entertaining for me to observe.

iHeart Music + wet n wild

DSC_9558
I’m perfectly content being a nana, choosing my couch and an early bed time over a crazy night out, but when Meijer asked if I wanted to head out to Las Vegas for the iHeart Music Festival with wet n wild, I shed my former self and said yes. But of course, I was filled with immediate anxiety. I didn’t know anyone going, no one could come with me and I came to the conclusion I’d have to navigate the travel and social gatherings on my own. Navigating these things aren’t new to me, I’m used to traveling alone, feeling a bit awkward and lost, but no matter how often I do it, it still feels like the first time.
Luckily for me, the wet n wild team made me feel welcomed right from the start and a glass of champagne as I entered the glam suite for hair and makeup also helped! I met a handful of bloggers from LA who were so much fun and charismatic. Most of them seemed to also balance careers as media personalities, which makes sense since they were so wonderfully fun and funny.
It was just pure excitement to get dolled up along side other bloggers and experience a production like the iHeart Music Festival. I got the most amazing seat a couple rows back from the stage the first night. So close I could see the sweat on Chris Martin’s face and just how amazingly large Nicki Minaj’s booty is. Moments like this I know I’ll treasure forever and be grateful to Meijer for selecting me to go with wet n wild. Even though I was able to see some amazing artists perform, spending time in their glam suite was my favorite. Not often do I get my hair and make up done on the daily (never do)!
