Your life gets busy, your schedule gets hectic, you do not see the end to this and you simply need to get away! What is a better place to have fun and relax than Las Vegas?? But the question is how to spend a memorable weekend in Las Vegas, see it all and do it all in just days?


This was my moment in December 2017. I was excited, but stressed over the new product launch, overworked a bit (let’s face it months of productive non-stop work can do that to you) and needed TO.HAVE.FUN. before 2018 was here. What makes it even a more special get-away places for me is that we got married in Vegas 7 years ago and each year we try to make it a tradition to go back and celebrate another year of life together. This was perfect timing and excuse = my parents were visiting and we had free and reliable babysitters! Tickets in hand, itinerary planned, 3 day weekend filled with fun and enticing moments lied ahead!

I packed the suitcase literally in 3 hours before the flight and was so ready to go! Upgraded seats on the plane with champagne toast, penthouse suit at the hotel - I was in for a ride! Yassss!


Destination hotel is never an easy choice when you have such a vast variety of accommodations boasting the latest trends in technology, design, food options and shows, right? The choice, however, is always easy for me - we stayed in Paris hotel when we got married in 2010, so that has been THE SPOT. Let me share a few points why:


     - Let’s face it - it sits right in the middle of the Strip! Here is the view from my window

     - Rooms have plenty of space (even regular hotel rooms) and always come clean!

     - In my opinion Paris hotel has the LEAST amount of smoking smell for those of us, non-smokers, who are either allergic to it or simply detest it. Well, other than Mandarin hotel of course - that one prohibits smoking inside and does NOT have any casinos in it.

     - For those of you who want to view Vegas Strip from above, book your Eiffel Tower viewing experience!

     - Endless food options and nice restaurants along with hip cafes offering french pastries and coffees. You’ve got Gordon Ramsey’s Steakhouse here and an unforgettable dining experience awaiting at Eiffel Tour that offers the view on the famous air balloon and the Vegas Strip from its huge windows.  By the way in Vegas there is this buffet deal where participating hotels (Rio, Flamingo, Paris, etc.) offer a 24 hr wrist pass to eat at their buffet restaurants and indulge to the max. So Paris would be your choice in this bargain, as it offers the BEST buffet restaurant out of all those participating - tons of french inspired dishes (yes, yes, crepes never come to an end here) + an overload of seafood, including crabs legs, endless shrimp, etc. Basically you’ve got a wide selection ranging from Italian and Chinese to French cuisine and sushi.

     - When you get up in the morning and feel lazy to go anywhere before you had that caffeine charge, simply get downstairs and taste the lovely espresso shots at Cafe Belle Madeleine paired with artisan cookies and sophisticated desserts made to satisfy the most gourmet taste! You can also find yummy breakfast options at Hexx Kitchen & Bar that stays open very late by the way!

     - Hotel offers a gym, a pool and a full spa salon. You know me as a fitness junkie who cannot live a day without a good amount of sweat spilled at the gym. So this is an important one for me! The gym here is not a huge state of art facility, but has main equipment and training machines you need, including cross cables, weight racks and the weight pulley cage. The way I stay in shape is no secret to a lot of you! Get.Reinvented program helps me stay in shape on the go no matter of a location!



     - The hotels has its own show now Inferno: The Fire Spectacular which will leave you amazed and surprised. Enjoy this show along with a few others.

     - For those of you gamblers who love to test the luck, the hotel offers many card games and table choices along with some interesting slot machine options. Have a penny? Give it a try! One of our favorite poker game is Ultimate Texas Hold’em. This is not a very popular game to find in many casinos, but Paris offers it!

     - Many souvenir boutiques will lavish you with the most exquisite gifts that are elegant and unconventional!

     - It has a popular nightclub Chateau where celebrities visit and hang out. It has a roof top adjacent to it, so anytime you need fresh air from being overwhelmed, step out and breathe! Vegas… Fun… Memories...I am still there, can you feel it in my words ha ha!

     - Lastly, to top it off: have you seen check-in/check-out lines in Vegas? If you have never been there, trust me, you do not want to stand in one: you will miss your show reservation, dinner and barely get to the nightclub in time LOL! My point is: self-service check in machines! Yes! I am sure the technology is going this way and soon all hotels on the Strip at least will be equipped with such machines to simplify the lives of guests, but currently even Bellagio does not offer such service. So this is a big advantage luring me to stay at Paris, to be honest!

You see, we did not just wed in Paris, our actual honeymoon was in Paris, France and everything “paris” makes me remember great romantic times and nothing can beat that.

Surely we had to have anniversary dinner at Eiffel Tour restaurant where a generous roses arrangement was waiting for me when we first sat at the table. Thanks, hubs!


Okay, enough about Paris, let’s move on to other places and options!


Among other trendy hotels that would be my choice for a stay would be:

     - Wynn, by all means. It is by far one of the prettiest hotels on the Strip and offers a lot of decor. The only thing about it it is kind of a stretch, so if you are going in winter, take a cab! Wynn is a residence to one of the most stunning Cirque Du Soleil shows La Reve! Mesmerizing, guys!

     - Cosmopolitan is one of the newest additions to the strip and has very modern rooms to offer. It has large selection of stores (many clothing) to offer in its 2 ground floors. On  higher end of things including high stakes tables and high poker bets.

     - Bellagio has expensive rooms, but honestly I would not want to stay there, as the hotel attracts many tourists and being a guest it is not always a comfortable moment trying to squeeze through endless crowd of onlookers (the hotel has a lot of exhibits) per each season so that you can just enter/exit the hotel.


things to do in las vegas during the day


     - Planet Hollywood! Yes, a very good choice. The hotel is huge and offers a Miracle Mile walk that has shows, stores, boutiques, restaurants - you name it! There you can experience a VR ride that will take you on a rocky journey through the canyons or horror maze filled with zombies.  $25 per ride. Many gamble tables and show selection along with popular lounges and bars!

     - Excalibur. It is a very neat, but old hotel that has some budget rooms to offer though spacious and clean.


las vegas attractions for adults


     - Caesars. The stay at this hotel is remarkable due to its setting and indoor decor. There are intermittent shows running in the hotel throughout the day. If you have never been, take a stroll through the hotel and enjoy the ambiance.

     - MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay and Luxor are great hotels also, just a bit to the further side of the Strip. Take some cool photos on the statues at the Luxor.

Do NOT stay at Harrah’s, Flamingo, Bally’s, Treasure Island, Mirage if smoking smell is too much for you. I think due to older ventilation systems or simply a lot of smoking gamblers the air in these hotels will make your eyes water! For real!


What to do and shows to watch

I am a show digger, hands down. I think I have seen every show out there except for a few. If you are into magic shows you need to go watch the following:

     - Criss Angel MindFreak LIVE! Boy, oh, boy! This boy on stage will make you go crazy for his ways, looks and magic tricks! Epotage and ambiance are through the roof!

     - Xavier Mortimer’s magical dream show offers an elegant spin to a french-inspired program on a very small stage. Good price for what it is worth.

     - David Copperfield - a must watch show. Classic and worth seeing. Do not be surprised if David will end up standing next to your chair during the show! Yep, he has this trick on his program where he just shows up next to you!


Acrobatics and Cirque Du Soleil Shows that are absolutely stunning and MUST SEE are (from the most to the least):

     - O! Is simply incredible and mind-blowing from the stage decorations to the acrobatics and costumes in the show

     - Le Reve is romantic, spectacular and will take your breath away. Think: water!

     - Zumanity will increase your senses and raise your modjo! Aha! Nudity and sexuality highly loaded in this show!

     - Michael Jackson ONE will touch your heart, will make you tear, will make you remember and appreciate. This show is not an impersonator show like MJ LIVE but rather a tribute to the idol and performances done to his songs.

     - Mystere honestly reminds me a lot of Le Reve just without water. So expect a lot of acrobatics and stunts that will sweep you off your feet

     - V- The Ultimate Variety Show will make you laugh, participate, scream and clap! Wally Eastwood is such a charismatic and fun guy who will definitely make your money worth!


So these shows are among the top chart for me. There are also seasonal shows from world renowned singers, so before you go browse seasonal performances online. Also, do not forget to check who the resident DJs are if you are planning to hit Vegas for New Year. David Guetta, Steve Aoki and Deadmau5 are among those top DJs that frequently visit this sin city!


If you are seeking something breathtaking, do not forget about roller coaster rides that New York New York, Circus Circus, Stratosphere and other hotels offer. View the full list of the adventurous rides here. Mind the weather, some of them are closed when it is raining.


Feeling in need of something cute and adorable or travelling with a child, visit the Wild Life habitat at the Mirage.  Exotic animals and dolphin shows in a garden setting right in the backyard of this hotel!

Hungry yet LOL? Let’s review some of the most hype eateries that offer mouthwatering dishes and the ones you need to visit...


Where to eat:

    1. One of the most desired restaurants is Eiffel Tower at Paris. Reservation alert: you MUST book it before going there. Do it here. However, be prepared to break a budget at this place. Exquisite dishes and exquisite price tag! We went there right after our wedding 7 years ago and we made it a tradition to go there every time we visit and relive the memories! While you are sitting by the window you can look at the Strip and even enjoy the Bellagio fountain show! Make it romantic and memorable! Money is a only a thing after all. Comes and goes! Memories stay!

Gordon Ramsay Steakhouse in the heart of Paris hotel will fill you up with the most flavorful and generous steaks! However, I am not big red meat fan, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found a seafood plate on the menu. Yummy?

     - Sekushi gives you one of a few places on the Strip that serves large Sake menu with small plates and dim sum menu in an open setting. It is right in the middle of Paris hotel, casino section, and closes past midnight (for those of you, night munchkins!) I would not say that this is the best dim-sum, but at least this option is here!

     - Lastly, the one to recommend would be Sage, a delicate restaurant offering farm-to-table menus, plus handcrafted cocktails, served in a modern Aria space with a night lounge option!

You are probably completely full after the culinary tour I gave you through Vegas. Tired? Excited? Ready to hit the dancefloor?? Not yet, hold up! How about hitting a bar and having a lifetime experience to keep your senses cool?

Absolute must-visit is Minus 5 Ice Lounge at the Mandalay Bay. There is also another one at the Venetian, if you happen to be closer that way.

Take photos, cuddle (as you will get cold) and enjoy wearing fur coats and fur hats!

Travelling is always fun whether it’s going home for holidays or taking a much needed me-time vacation but what makes it daunting is PACKING. What makes it tough is packing everything tight and just right: clothes not to wrinkle, perfume bottles not to break, items not to fly in the suitcase when you are flying LOL Hey, and don’t forget that luggage tag in case it gets lost -  you will need it!


I’ve put together these simple packing tips for you to make travelling less stressful:











What to pack and where to start? Is this the question that pops up in your head when you are planning a trip? Whether it’s your first trip or you’re a seasoned traveller, it’s always helpful to know what items to bring.


backpack travel bag


So just bookmark this travel packing guide and refer to it whenever you plan a trip.


     1. MAIN LUGGAGE: whenever you are planning a trip make sure that you choose a luggage that’s versatile, light weighted and holds all your essentials. Here is a tip: buy a luggage set that can be easily stowed by placing smaller suitcases into a big one and thus save space in your hotel room!


designer luggage sets


     2. ORGANIZE BEFORE PACKING: if you have planned a lot of activities for the trip, then definitely think of the gear that will be required. And organizing everything will be really challenging. But hold on, this is one thing to think about - if your trip contains multiple destinations and you know what clothes/gear you will be needing in destination A vs destination B, then pack accordingly! Also, it really helps to start writing a list of items to bring ahead of time and keep it handy when packing so that you do not miss anything. As you pack scratch items off the list. Better even share your packing list with your travelling partner in Wunderlist app and ask him to write the items he wants to bring along!


     3. START YOUR PACKING WITH THE BASICS: pack smart and do not over-pack. Choose versatile clothing that can be used in different scenarios. Try to include clothes that can be worn on your daily adventures and then dressed up slightly with a different pair of shoes or a scarf. Do not forget a hat if you are heading in a sunny destination!

Another tip: even if you are heading to a hot vacation spot, floors in hotels may be dirty and/or cold (think marble floors) so pack a pair of slippers you can wear inside.


travel essentials checklist


     4. PACK YOUR TOILETRIES: always keep your toiletries and makeup in a see-through pouch. It will not only keep things confined in case of a leak, but you'll be able to see everything in one place, without digging up your suitcase. Pack gender friendly items: liked decide on a toothpaste that both of you can use, choose a sunblock lotion that both of you can utilize. It will save space!


     5. PACK YOUR CARRY-ON BAG: The next thing to do is to fill your carry-on bag with anything you will be needing during the flight and at the airport. If you’ll be traveling around to multiple destinations, make sure this bag has items to keep you comfortable and cozy on any train, boat or bus rides. Pack a laptop or an ipad, travel pillow, eye mask, blanket, socks to wear on the plane, motion sickness pills, book or magazine, travel guide or map etc. But remember, you’ll be carrying all of this, so keep it light. If you are trying to map out a city guide, this would be a perfect opportunity to plan the route across the city!

     6. TRAVEL HEALTH KIT: Put together a travel health kit - it is a must during a trip. It shall contain all the emergency medicines, some bandages, allergies remedy, etc. While I am on this note, please check this website to see any alerts on vaccines you need when travelling to your particular destination country. It gets updated regularly by government. Check your medications to ensure all of them are filled and do not expire soon. If needed, schedule a visit to your doctor to get a refill on a medication on time.


     7. KEEP YOUR IMPORTANT TRAVEL DOCUMENTS, CASH, CREDIT CARDS:  Collect all of your important documents in a travel document organizer. It should hold your passport, ID, credit cards, documents, a boarding pass, and a pen!) By keeping all important information together, you have everything handy within a hand’s reach.


travel essentials carry on


     8. PACK A LAUNDRY BAG: Laundry service at the hotel can get expensive. So it is ok if you have to do laundry when you return home. Pack a large plastic bag for your soiled laundry so that you can keep dirty items isolated from the rest of the luggage in the suitcase.


     9. PUT YOUR WALLET ON A DIET: sounds funny..but it is practical. Go through your wallet and remove all of the membership cards, discount coupons you do not need on a trip. If you are going overseas, remove the heavy coins from the wallet - you will not use American change there anyway! If you have a smaller wallet, better take this one and just have one or two credit cards, driver’s license and some cash.


     10. GOT SNACKS?: lastly, pack a few snacks to quench your hunger quickly just in case you don’t have something nearby. It could be a protein bar, nuts, cranberries, etc. Something light and easy that has carbs.


Wherever you are heading for a trip, just make sure you think through your list of activities beforehand so that you’re able to bring everything you need and choose the right luggage. I tend to plan the entire itinerary in advance and even do a quick search online for the reputable and authentic places to eat at. When you are at a new country and want to explore, you will not have time to search internet for a good place - you want to take photos and enjoy yourself. Packing light always helps with mobility.Travelling changes may come up instantly and you will be ready to adjust to them quickly with a lighter and smarter luggage.

So the next time you travel, try being light and savvy and you’ll be surprised how little you really need.

Violence, anger, abuse… You are lucky if you have not experienced any. The world would not be real if there was no black and white in it, no evil and good.

It is crazy stats but 1 in 3 women have been victims of [some form of] physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime. I was one of them… that time is long gone, but not the story in my heart and memory in my brain. Sad, I know. But here is the thing: I am CALLING to all of you out there to STAND STRONG and UNITE against intimate partner abuse, to spread the awareness to this issue and raise the bar when it comes to protecting women in need!


mom weight loss challenge


Many times such women are in need and they do not have the courage to come forward, do not have a strong position within their mind and heart to break this vicious circle to run away and escape the life event. It is also known as BWS (battered woman syndrome). It is hard to believe that in the 21st century with all the technology, gadgets and freedom such phenomenon is still at large. We can ask many questions, such as:


  • Why do these women sacrifice so much to stay in a toxic relationship?

  • Why is a victim of a rape being blamed by her neighbors/society?

  • Why is she scared to open up and talk, to pack up and leave?

  • Why does she allow this to keep happening and continues to love such partner?


Let’s not ask questions. Let’s not second guess. Let’s not doubt. Let’s not wonder. Let’s UNITE and HELP such women to become STRONG and MOTIVATED to change the life they are living. Because THEY CAN. Because WE CAN HELP.

Today I stand STRONG in an attempt to EMPOWER such women and ENCOURAGE them to take charge!


I have partnered up with Willpowered Woman, a non-profit organization that supports survivors of intimate partner abuse, to host an online fitness challenge where 10% of proceeds will be donated to this organization for the needs of survivors. Join Get.Reinvented Women March Marathon where you will train with me for an entire month and eat healthy and yummy based on my meal plan!


weight loss for busy mums


Are you up for getting in shape and doing it for a good cause? What could be better, guys!

I can tell you one thing: physical strength comes hand in hand with mind wellness. I was lucky to disengage from such toxic relationship and start a new life. So by hosting this fitness marathon I am hoping to show how much support such women have and how many of us understand and willing to help! In addition, I hope that survivors can join me in this Marathon and get strong to never doubt themselves again, to gain self-confidence and respect, to cut the ties with the abuser and become free!

Will power. Commitment. Self-belief. Motivation. Courage.


Let’s change the WORLD for the BETTER TOGETHER!

gym routine for losing weight


     1. It helps you in accomplishing your fitness goals: a partner workout not only boosts your motivation level but also bring consistency in your workouts resulting in achieving your fitness goals sooner. It is all about accountability and dual motivation!


     2. Exercising becomes fun: Serious workouts are performed without being serious – you will laugh at times, you will fail at times, but most importantly you will help each other get through this! In fact, the more fun your training becomes, the more you are going to look forward to it and be committed to it. And there can’t be any better gym buddy than your soulmate. Working out alone can make you feel lonely and discouraged at times, especially when you are just starting your fitness journey. So just bring your partner right along and enjoy your workouts and amplify your fitness goals!


     3. Gives an opportunity to try new workouts: Partner workout gives you a chance to try out certain exercises that require assistance and/or partner resistance.

     4. A source of motivation and support: To have someone by your side makes a huge difference. It’s always a motivation. Having your partner as a workout buddy provides additional emotional strength and support to stick to your fitness goals as well as builds up your confidence to achieve them.


     5. Your workout becomes safer: To have someone stand by your side when you do a pull-up or a bench press makes you feel secure. Jogging during dark hours makes it safer than running alone in the dark.


     6. Increases your commitment levels: It’s always easier to ditch your workout, but it becomes much harder to ditch a workout when you know you are letting your partner down. Having a gym buddy means you need to plan your workout schedule in advance to meet each other’s availability. This ultimately increases your commitment and helps you take the fitness goals to the next level!


Start this Valentine’s Day with a perfect workout and then cook a delicious, healthy and protein packed meal. Light some candles and enjoy each other’s company.
