Today we're going to explore another Chase Luxury Hotel and Resort Collection property : Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas. So, let's begin by saying that this trip wasn't even suppose to happen. One day I was looking at my Southwest Airlines account and noticed that there was $111 of unused Southwest credit. I haven't been flying like I used to and I must have forgotten all about it. The credit was due to expire

Welcome back to Part 5 of my free wine tasting series! We are going to continue on with the famous Willamette Valley since it was too long to fit all in one blog post last time. If you are interested, you can find the first Willamette Valley post here. The day that we visited these wineries, it was unfortunately raining all day. It seems that I can't get away from bad weather. First, it was

On our last Oregon trip, we decided to stay at The Nines Hotel in Portland using our Amex Fine Hotels and Resorts benefit. I know of The Nines Hotel because of a previous trip I took years ago when it was still part of SPG. Today, the Nines Hotel is under the Marriott brand and is part of the Luxury Collection Hotel sub-brand. I haven't been to this hotel in probably five years so I

In Part 4 of our Alaska Airlines Free Wine Tasting series, we are now going to visit the famous Willamette Valley, Oregon! Yes, the prestigious land of pinot noirs. A lot of people don’t know about this region, but it’s just as reputable as Napa or Sonoma. If you didn’t know, it’s actually pronounced “Will-AM-it” as in “Will-AM-it, dammit!” In the beginning, I was pronouncing it the wrong way and was literally practicing for weeks

As we are getting closer and closer to the gift-giving season, I thought I'd share with you an in-depth guide to the Gucci Outlet! There are multiple Gucci outlets around the world, but I'll be concentrating on the one located at the Desert Premium Outlets in Cabazon, California. You might be familiar with this location already as I blogged about the Christian Louboutin outlet store that's there too. Let's first start off with the fact that

I know I've been posting a lot about Oregon lately so today I'm going to change it up and talk about our recent visit to the Park MGM Las Vegas using the Chase Luxury Hotel and Resort Collection (LHRC). You might have seen one of my earlier blog posts where we stayed at the Encore Hotel Las Vegas using Amex's Fine Hotels and Resort Program. Well, the Chase LHRC is almost exactly like that. We

I love wine. I can’t tell you how much money I’ve spent on wine because I’ll probably start getting depressed. Just kidding. Even though I’m no expert in wine, it’s something I’ve taken a liking to in the past couple of years. I hate going to a restaurant and not be able to pick a wine bottle that I know I would like. So, for the past couple of years, I’ve decided to slowly educate

Some of you might have heard that Christian Louboutin has just opened an outlet store here state side. Well, you heard right! This is the very first Christian Louboutin Outlet in the United States and it is located at the Desert Hills Premium Outlets in Cabazon, California. It's a short drive from Palm Springs or about an hour and a half drive from Los Angeles with no traffic. There is plenty of shopping to do
