Las Vegas Day 1

View from our window
Hello everyone, the reason I haven't been on lately is because I had the opportunity to attend the MAGIC Trade Show in Vegas. So we left on Monday and we stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel. I was not happy. I had booked the hotel almost 2 months ahead of time to avoid situations like this. I received a 2 bedroom room when I only needed one bed. At the beginning I was looking at the bad side of the hotel and all their imperfections because I was upset about the price and room mix-up.

The Good and the Bad at Hard Rock Hotel:


  1. Great Music
  2. Great Atmosphere
  3. Great Decor (love the furniture, wallpaper, color scheme)
  4. Loved the bedding (I slept like a
  5. Walking distance from CVS
  6. Close to Convention Center
  7. Complimentary Wi-Fi
  8. Complimentary shuttles to strip
  9. Pools are great (best ones i've seen)
  10. Great View


  1. High Prices on rooms
  2. Mini Bar was not what expected (7.50 for a $1.50 SmartWater)
  3. It could be cleaner (dusty furniture, old shower curtains)
  4. Complimentary Soap, Shampoo and Conditioner were dry and sticky.
  5. Far from strip
  6. There is a limited amount of food options: Few Restaurants
  7. Long lines at registration 

So staying at the Hard Rock was not that bad at the end we got a $100 dollar refund only to pay $200 for 3 days 2 night stay. If they had said that sooner they would of avoided my complaining and headache.

So my advise to you is never use it is the worst website I have ever used for traveling purposes. They ask for your credit card information and for what! The hotel said it does not secure your spot and there is no discount.


I know what you mean about hotels and traveling problems, this year, in Paris, was the first time I had a vacation were we had no problems with the room, water, we were really close to everything.
That view you had is amazing.

Clutter Free with Music Magpie

My hubby is a DVDs and video game hoarders. Like you can imagine we have a large amount of DVDs, video games and Cd's we don't use. We have game consoles from back in the day and if I could get rid of them I would.

We recently moved from Riverside to LA and I found out how much stuff we actually had. Though it was a very short amount of time that I had to pack, I was able to separate all the DVDs games etc in a different box. It makes it difficult for anybody to move or even save space for other things when you have cabinets full of stuff. So I made it a challenge for me to get rid of some of the old stuff and I found the perfect way of doing so!

Guylian Chocolate Review

I was so excited about the opportunity to review Guylian Chocolates! I have a sweet tooth so this made my day when I opened my box filled with delicious goodies. Inside the box I received Chocolate Truffle Boxes in both original and extra dark chocolate. They were enough for me to share with the family. All of the chocolates come with a signature hazelnut filling that is to die for!
