DATING IN LAS VEGAS!!!!

I don't know what it's like to date in other cities but I'm sure it's got to be the same as it is here in Las Vegas. Simply "IT SUCKS". And of course you are probably thinking to yourself as you read this "yeah, it sucks here too" and I don't doubt you that it does. Dating in general pretty much just sucks in my opinion but that might have something to do with where I live. Let's just take a second to think about Las Vegas for a moment shall we. 

Las Vegas is a city that is focused on gambling, drinking, tourists, strip clubs and "beautiful people" that are either buff & ripped or young & skinny. It is a very stereotyped city and when it comes to what a beautiful person looks like, it has some seriously unrealistic standards. I believe everyone is beautiful or handsome but I don't think that there should but a set "type" of person that is when everyone is. For the normal and average person, it can be a bit hard to contend with. People are always keeping their options open here for the "next best thing" or person rather and it's really quite sad.

I was compensated two passes to view this movie for review purposes.
All opinions are 100% my own. 


SYNOPSIS
From Walt Disney Animation Studios, the team behind “Frozen” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” comes “Big Hero 6,” an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax (voice of Scott Adsit), a plus-sized inflatable robot, and prodigy Hiro Hamada (voice of Ryan Potter). When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his close friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago (voice of Jamie Chung), neatnik Wasabi (voice of Damon Wayans Jr.), chemistry whiz Honey Lemon (voice of Genesis Rodriguez) and fanboy Fred (voice of T.J. Miller). Determined to uncover the mystery, Hiro transforms his friends into a band of high-tech heroes called “Big Hero 6.”

Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring breathtaking action with all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”). The film hits theaters in 3D on Nov. 7, 2014. 

Rated: PG
Runtime: 108 min


Before my son and I went to see the Big Hero 6 I wasn't exactly too sure on what it was about. Yeah I had seen the movie trailers on the tv but I either didn't see the whole thing or remembered much of them. Pretty much the only thing that I new about Big Hero 6 was that it had a white robot that looked like an adorable marshmallow. Who by the way is seriously the most awesome character in this movie.

Honestly, I was a bit hesitant to see this movie because it is based off of a children's book that I read as a child and now I read it to my son. That last well known children's book turned to a live action movie that I watched I really didn't quite care for so I was a bit worried I might not like this one. Well, I actually did like it once it got further into the movie and my son who prefers cartoons sat and watched it without bugging me to leave until the very end.

OUR TRIP TO THE MCKEE RANCH PUMPKIN PATCH

Have I mentioned before how much I love this time of year? Well if I haven't I am now. I absolutely love it and I love all of the festivities that come with it as I am naturally a very festive person and it's something that I would love to pass on to my son and so far it seems to be working. Each weekend this month I am attempting to do something fun, festive and Halloween related with him so as to celebrate the major holiday of this month rather than just the one day especially since he can't really enjoy it because he's highly allergic to nuts and cannot eat the candy that he gets trick or treating.

So this past Saturday we went on our first outing of the month and it was seriously worth it and more. We had planned on going to the Bellagio casino to check out their festive flower display but ended up going to this place called the McKee Ranch for their 9th annual festive pumpkin patch. This was the first year that we had ever gone to it let alone heard of it and I am so glad that the other mom's in my local facebook group suggested it as not only did my son have fun but my mother and myself had a lot of fun as well. As always, I was equipped with my camera and took tons of pictures yet had a hard time picking out a select few to share with you. So.....I am of course sharing quite a few instead because there are just too many that I really enjoy and want to share.

A LITTLE POP OF ORANGE!

Orange! A color that I particularly don't incorporate that much into my wardrobe often except around this time of year. It's one of those colors that I bring out during Fall in small doses to just add a bit of color and it also makes me feel a bit more festive. Whilst browsing through items the other day I spotted these heels that normally would have been overlooked but something about them made me stop and want them. So of course I had to go and design an outfit around them.



You could definitely pair these heels with either silver or gold accessories but I ended up going with gold after finding the purse with gold accents. Keeping everything gold just ties everything in and looks seamless I think. I kept everything a neutral color as well so as not to clash with the orange heels especially since I wanted them to be the main focus of the outfit. The dark wash jeans make the orange heels pop even more and will help the wearer not look completely washed out since the rest of the outfit is very neutral.

I went with two different types of necklaces to fit both personalities of a necklace wearer. You have the three tiered dainty necklace that is very feminine, stylish and won't make a huge statement. And then you have the very gold and large statement necklace that will definitely draw attention while looking stylish and chic.

The heels themselves are very stylish and I absolutely love the color. It's not too bright of an orange and since they have an tall heel on them they wouldn't look like small pumpkins on your feet. The only draw back of them is that they don't have a platform wear the ball of your foot and toes rest so more than likely they will absolutely kill your feet if you were to walk in them for a long period of time.
