Visiting Seven Magic Mountains

Located just outside Las Vegas, Nevada is the Seven Magic Mountains art exhibit. Although it is essentially painted rocks, it's quite the sight to see. Surrounded by the dull brown background of the desert, the bright pops of color seem extra vibrant. I'll let the photos speak for themselves!

Allot at least 30 minutes to check it out and take photos. I was probably there closer to an hour because I was waiting for crowds to clear to take pictures. When I visited on a Thursday around 5pm, there were about 20 people. It's definitely a popular attraction.

If you plan on traveling to Seven Magic Mountains, be sure to do it within the next year, as it's set to end in 2018. There isn't an exact date (that I could find) but the installation is only set for two years and opened May 2016, so I assume it will be gone around May 2018.

Getting there, there are signs to let you know where to exit, but it's a good idea to have an idea of where you are going.

From Las Vegas:
Via I-15 S exit Sloan Rd (exit 25) and turn left to Las Vegas Boulevard. Drive approximately 7 miles south on Las Vegas Blvd. Exhibit is on your left.

From Los Angeles: 
Drive north on I-15 to Jean, NV (exit 12), then take NV-161 east toward Las Vegas Blvd. Drive approximately 5 miles north on Las Vegas Blvd. Exhibit is on your right.

Add Neon Museum to Your Vegas Plans

The Neon Museum

In addition to gambling, drinking, shows, and whatever you do while in Las Vegas, be sure to add Neon Museum to the list for your next trip to Sin City. Also called "Neon Boneyard", it's an awesome place full of old Vegas history. The museum is dedicated to collecting and restoring old Las Vegas signs that visitors can check out during hour-long guided tours during the day or night.

We opted for the day tour and as you can see below, it didn't disappoint. Photo dump in 3, 2, 1...

Years ago I had seen these cool signs in 311's "Last Straw" music video and knew I had to see them in person. It was everything I'd imagined it to be! The only thing I didn't like was that you can't roam on your own. I understand for safety reasons you can't be alone, but with a group of 20ish, hanging back is the only way to snap pictures without a bunch of people in them. But by doing so, I didn't hear most of the tour. Other than that, I really did enjoy the experience and encourage you to visit during your next Vegas trip.

Be sure to book a tour in advance, as they sell out several days before and you don't want to miss out!

Ideas For Styling a Button-Up Shirt

Ideas For Styling a Button-Up Shirt

Over the last three weeks I've featured one classic button-up Old Navy shirt, styled three ways. I had originally bought it for an interview and figured I'd never wear it again but I didn't want to waste the money. So I made an effort to push myself to incorporate the top into my outfits, and in doing so, realized it's a staple that can be worn many different ways.

Here are the versatile looks I came up with: business, casual, and playful.

Styling a Button Up Casually Weekend Brunch Outfit
Valentine's Day Outfit LuLa Roe Valentine's Day Leggings

I'd typically lean toward casual look two, but I am glad I pushed myself out of my comfort zone for the third outfit. What style is your favorite of the three?
