Staycation At MotorCity Casino Hotel In Detroit

This post is partnered with MotorCity Casino Hotel.

It seems like everyone knows how much I love travel. Recently I have received the same question many times: “Where are you going next?” Lol! Well, probably a road trip in June to Charleston, SC, August to Tuscany, Italy and Province, France, October to Athens and Santorini, Greece and November will be to LA. But in between those trips, I probably will take some short trips, or staycations just like I did last week at the fabulous MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit.

I have been to the Sounds Board inside the hotel many times for fashion shows. I also experienced a super relaxing evening at the D.Tour Spa. But this was my first time staying at the hotel and trying their 4-Diamond dining experience at Iridescence. Needless to say, it was an extraordinary stay!

The front desk was very friendly and my check in was a breeze.

Before heading to the restaurant, I decided to relax and pamper myself a little bit. When you are treated like a queen, you seriously feel like a queen. Lol! Don’t judge my sunglasses. It is my queen uniform. 😉

I have heard many great things about the Iridescence restaurant inside the hotel. Being a foodie, I was so excited to have this chance to check it out. First impression? The decorations and views are gorgeous!

Then the food, oh my gosh, I have to say that I was in my little heaven! I ordered the special chef tasting menu with Italian wine. Just look at the beautiful presentation of each dish!

It was so hard to pick which one was my favorite. Every dish was so thoughtfully put together with the best flavors, colors and layouts. It is always obvious when a dish is amazing because it not only makes my mouth watery, but also makes my eyes sparkle. 😉 The dishes there certainly achieved both goals.

After this yummy feast, I decided to check out the casino. They do not allow photos there, but you can see me walking around the hotel. Oh boy, I didn’t realize how big this hotel is. The complex houses a 100,000 square-foot casino with approximately 2,800 slot machines, 59 table games, and two poker rooms; a 13,000-square-foot spa; 67,000 square feet of meeting and convention space; Sound Board, a live music theater with a capacity of 2,400 people; and a luxury hotel with 400 guest rooms and suites.

Look For Less With the Salvation Army On Fox 2 Detroit

You may still remember the post LOOK FOR LESS TO SUPPORT THE SALVATION ARMY ADULT REHABILITATION CENTER (ARC) I wrote in early April. In that post, I used all my great finds at the Salvation Army Store near me and styled two outfits for myself. If I don’t say so myself, no one can tell the outfits are from a thrift store and one of the outfits was less than $10.

Two weeks ago, I went to the same Salvation Army store to style 3 of the Salvation Army/ARC employees. I had an amazing time working with these amazing people and helping them to create stunning looks for less. I mean… really, really less. One of theirs is less than $10 too. 😉 You can watch this short video for a sneak peak of the before and after looks. Later you will find out whose outfit was the cheapest!

When we met, Mycha told me that she is looking for a date night look. So we both agreed on a spring colored above-the-knee dress with just a hint of sexiness. She is just like me; because she is a petite girl, any dress length is very critical. Above-the-knee dresses are always our best friends, especially for a taller petite girl like her. After trying on a few dresses, we both in love with a yellow lace dress. Since this dress is already so loud and bold, we tried to keep everything else very low-key so any accessories would not compete with the attention of this dress. You may have already noticed that Mycha is not your typical girly girl. She has this cool girl swagger going on. A bikers jacket became the best way to keep her warm during the night out while also adding her tough girl vibe to this feminine look. For this same purpose, we picked a pair of very clean cut leather booties and a timeless clutch to go with this whole look. What do you think?

When I asked Jordon what color he hated, he told me PINK, but I knew he would look great in pink. Later I found out he felt uncomfortable with V neck tees, too. So I asked him to step out of his comfort zone by at least two feet. Pink and V-necks were both within that two foot radius. 😉 He was super nice and willing to give it a try. He was even ok with this pair of orange pants. We found this navy blue blazer, pink tee and pants for him. Later he told me, the pink tee was growing on him. Lol. Jordan was looking for an outfit that he could be social in with his friends. Look at him now! I can see him on a rooftop bar, sipping his drink, and chatting with those cool guys.

Ashlee really knows herself very well and she can shop really fast too. 😉 She didn’t need much of my help and pretty much found this outfit by herself. She was looking for an outfit that she can wear when she goes out with family and friends to a nice restaurant. She found a tan duster vest first and a pair of very pretty printed heels. Since she needs to wear her scarf and not show much skin, we both agreed a pair of pants would go very well with the vest. Later, she found the perfect colored pants and we found a brown leather bag to go with this look.

You probably already guessed right. Yes, we were featured on FOX 2 Detroit on 4/30. Jillian Lankford from ARC and I were the guests for the Style File session on the morning show. Jillian talked about how shopping at the Salvation Army does not just give you an amazing look for less, but also helps many men and women getting back on their feet start their new lives again. My three models helped me demonstrate what we found there to put together these 3 stunning looks.
