Never Had I Ever: Bloggers in Sin City

To everyone who is reading this that I had the pleasure of meeting in Vegas for #BiSC, this will be redundant.

To everyone who is reading this that did not attend #BiSC, DO IT NEXT YEAR.

Let’s play a little game: Never had I ever.

Never had I ever stayed in a hotel room with a TV in the bathroom mirror.

Never had I ever spent two days lounging on reserved daybeds, around a pool, in Vegas.

Never had I ever spent $40 on a bucket of 5 Coronas. Several times.

Never had I ever sat down to dinner with 10 almost-strangers.

Never had I ever tasted a Red Velvet Martini. Complete with a cream cheese frosted rim.

Never had I ever mixed champagne and Red Bull. And didn’t barf.

Never had I ever seen a more-than-half-naked hot chick tap dance in a balloon.

Never had I ever seen such creative interpretations of the use of a wheel of tongues. (I had to say it.)

Never had I ever seen so many people come together to celebrate engagement and mourn a loss.

Never had I ever been surrounded with so much blogger love in one place, in real life.

Never had I ever met so many incredible people, people whom I felt like I already knew. People who’ve touched my life and heart in so many ways.

It’s really amazing what the Internet is capable of. These people, these bloggers are real people. And I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to be able to call them friends.

Special thanks to all the sponsors who helped bring all of this together: The Flamingo Hotel, Shatterboxx, Absinthe, Babeland, Hair Flairs, sprayology, Think Geek, Bitter Baking Company, BuildASign, Davide Saxe Productions, nuNAAT, Pink Kisses, Pop Chips, Sir Richard’s, SKYY Vodka, Swiss Maid Fudge, USA Pears, twisted sista, Vita CoCo.

Obligatory comment from me despite having no context or insight.

#Bisc 2012! I’ll totally be there.

$40 for a bucket of corona?!?! Let’s do next year’s event at my cabin. Much cheaper

Almie’s montage is such a win. And for some reason, the thing here that’s sticking out to me is: Champagne and Red Bull? Craziness. Thank goodness it wasn’t a debacle!

It was DISGUSTING! I don’t recommend it one bit!

I’m so glad we got to catch up a bit. But, like I said to Jenny, it’s NEVER ENOUGH! I need more Chelsea in my life.

It was so great to hang out with you all weekend!! I’m excited to all get together when I get back to the city and watch how-to make up videos by 15 year old girls :) … and I agree with Jenny Blake’s comment above!

I know! Just like you said, bloggers are the BEST people. Seriously.

I adore bloggers in sin city recaps! I have attempted to go every year for the past at least 2 years and each year grad school thwarted my plans. It is over now though and May 2012 is penciled into my calendar already :)

You HAVE to come next year! It was seriously incredible. So many amazing people!
