FeaturedThe best places to eat on the las vegas strip!

On average, roughly 39 million tourists visit the Las Vegas strip per year according to Statista. Many are looking for a week of fun and excitement; to include gambling, seeing a show or two and fine dining. But where should you eat on the Vegas strip, there are so many restaurants how do you choose? Below are the six best steak houses on the Las Vegas Strip, saving the best for last.

The Prime Steak House

Prefer dinner with a view, Prime Steak House  at the Bellagio is a romantic picturesque dining experience perfect for anniversaries and wedding parties. The restaurant itself sits right behind the Bellagio Fountains, giving your table a up close and personal look at the show. However, be sure to bring your wallets and call ahead for a reservation. Dinners can average around $120.00 a plate, and if you don’t call ahead you most likely won’t get a fountain view. Thats what happened to us so we ended up seated in the back and at that point you are just paying $200 for a steak! If you opt for the Prime Steak House try their Peppercorn Crusted NY Strip it only cost $67.00 for 14oz and it tastes fantastic!

Carrie Underwood: A All American Cinderella Story!

Academy of Country Music Awards - Carrie Underwood

From the stages of American Idol, to Sunday night football Carrie Underwood is a real life American Cinderella Story.

If you were like me and the other 30 million viewers that tuned in every Tuesday and Wednesday night for American Idol in 2005, then you got to witness the birth of Carrie Underwood’s superstardom as it grew right before your eyes! Back then I don’t think people realized just how big she would become, but she has proven that with time and dedication you really can make your dreams come true.

When asked why she was so nervous by Randy Jackson she looks at Simon Cowell during her audition and says, “He’s Scary”. She also omitted that she was on the football team in her home town of Oklahoma, and had a 3rd nipple! She also has the ability to cluck like a chicken, and after clucking for Randy and Simon she manage to “Cluck her way into American Idol” singing I Can’t Make You Love Me, by Bonnie Raitt see below.

Although she had never been on a plane before and was terrified of the thought she managed to concur her fears both in the air and on stage and go on to be one of the most successful idols in American Idol history! So what does Carrie Underwood have that other idol winners didn’t have to garner the same level of success? If Idol producers knew the answer to that question, each idol winner would have the same level of success. Is it her talent, marketability, her infectious bubbly personality, her beauty, or is she so driven that she refused to let herself fail? Whatever the answer, it is working for her, she is no longer Carrie Underwood from American Idol, she is Carrie Underwood a country legend.

Successful people have a social responsibility to make the world a better place and not just take from it. – Carrie Underwood

Her debut single post idol “Inside Your Heaven”, was the first country music single in history to debut number one on the US Billboard Hot 100. Her first album Some Hearts attracted country music fans as well as pop with hits like “Before He Cheats”, “Wasted”, and “Jesus Take the Wheel”. Her debut album Some Hearts became the best-selling solo female debut album in country music history, her songs could be seen in Rom Coms like “Americas Sweethearts”. Five albums, a wedding and two babies later it is clear that Carrie is here for the long hall and there is nothing she can’t do! She really is a real life  all Aamerican Cinderlla Story.

Am I the only one who wants to see a Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert heist movie after their music video for Something Bad? Please tell me its happening!

You can do anything you put your mind to. I believe in all of you. Never doubt yourself, even if everyone around you is doubting you. Stand tall. Prove them all wrong.Each and every one of you have something amazingly special about you and don’t let anyone tell you any different. Thank you for being my fans.. and my friends. Thank you for giving me a reason to sing. Thank you for being you. - Carrie Underwood

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Predictions

FeaturedWinter is Coming Season 8 Game Of Thrones Tell All Predictions

Game Of Thrones Official Season 8 Trailer

We’ve got 6 episodes remaining and when Game of Thrones makes its comeback in season 8, in April of 2019, there will be so many fans waiting to see how this epic saga finally culminates. We expect that these final episodes will be lengthier than in the previous series and we may well witness six episodes that are as long as short movies. There are a lot of questions to be answered in this final series with the buzz going around the lead characters and what will become of them. The Wall has been breached by the Night King with the imminence of the Great War. Will the dead triumph? Will there be any reunions in the coming season. What characters will die and, finally, who will become King? There are a lot of guesses and fan theories but here are the top 5 predictions for season 8

Bran Stark Controls The White Walkers

via GIPHY

As Game of Thrones looks to be progressing steadily towards a dramatic showdown in which the Westeros take on the White Walkers, Isaac Hempstead, who plays the role of the visionary Bran Stark, seems to have given a clue as to how the White Walkers will be conquered. The teenager pointed out that his character has a very huge role to play in defeating the Night King together with his army.

Isaac explained that Bran had a great task on his back to be the Raven with three eyes. He doesn’t just remember what being Bran is like but remembers virtually everything that has occurred in the universe from the very beginning.

Isaac gave this hint while saying that Bran would be instrumental to the collapse of the White Walkers. He pointed out that Bran’s knowledge of Jon Snow, as well as his understanding of how the White Walkers came to be, may become a great tool for defeating the White Walkers. This makes Bran a very valuable tool on the side of the Westeros and all that he needs to do is to pass this vital information only to the appropriate persons.

Arya Stark Kill Cersei Lannister

The theory being spread by fans suggests that in the coming season 8, Arya Stark will personally bring a climax to the reign of Cersei Lannister at the Westeros. Fans have followed the series and seen how Arya has evolved into a very dangerous character in all of Westeros. As she posses the ability to change her face, as well as, superb sword skills, she looks set to be the one who will restore peace in the world of the Game of Thrones.

Arya had been pitted as the one destined to kill Cersei but a lot of speculation has it that Jamie will first be killed and, then, his face will be used by Arya to kill Cersei. The death of Cersei will complete Arya’s list of people whom she wanted dead and is a fulfillment of the prophecy as well.

Tyrion Lannister Is Actually A Targaryen

This very theory has it that the father of Daenerys, King Aerys Targaryen, got into an affair with the mother of Tyrion. More so, when Tywin Lannister was killed by Tyrion, his father pronounced that Tyrion was no son of his and this has been taken literally be avid fans. In the last season, we got to see how Tyrion developed a bond with the dragons of Daenerys in such a way that only a dragon-blooded Targaryen could. If you connect all the dots, well, it’s pretty plausible.

Miley Cyrus Crazy or Genius?

FeaturedMiley Cyrus at the Teen Choice Awards

Over the years, viewers have watched, as Miley Cyrus morphed into superstardom, as the singer is no stranger to the spotlight. But we pose the question are all of her media outbursts a cry for help or is she secretly a genius? Let’s look at the facts…

Being the daughter of country music star Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley wasn’t born into your average family but rather than ride his celebrity she has certainly paved her own way in Hollywood. Miley Cyrus became a pop culture phenomenon staring in her breakout role for the Disney Channel sitcom Hannah Montana from 2006-2011. Teens garnered everything from albums, to posters you name it if it was branded Hannah Montana it sold out. I recall one year walking through Walmart she even had her own Easter eggs! However, many other female artists came out around that same era, such as Demi Lovato (Camp Rock) and Selena Gomez (Wizards of Waverly Place).

via GIPHY

demi lovato and selena gomez disney princessesAll three artists made a name for themselves in their own way, but speculators could not help but notice the similarities…born in 1992, beautiful, came from Disney. How do you make a name for yourself when you are forced into this bubble? Growing up Miley Cyrus idolized strong women in music such as Dolly Parton, Joan Jet, and Madonna. According to an article from People Magazine she was quoted saying “Madonna always reinvents herself, and that’s what I want to do.”

“I’m not trying to replicate her or be her, but we’re standing for a similar freedom,” Cyrus said. “It’s even easier for me than I’m sure it was for Madonna. So I think it’s going to get easier and easier, as generations go on, women are going to be more accepted to be free and embrace sexuality.” – Yahoo

Therefore, while many felt her antics were crazy or signs of an underlining disorder I believe that she was a genius! All of her wild late night performances and risque wardrobe choices were the decisions of a very clever mastermind choosing to break out of the Disney bubble and into a strong, beautiful performer that Can’t Be Tamed!

Is Miley Cyrus really as crazy as everyone thinks she is, or is she secretly a genius? Let us know your thoughts, leave a comment below!
