Our Visit to Madame Tussauds Las Vegas

A couple of months ago, my husband and I went to Las Vegas with some friends of ours and had a blast!  Because I work with some amazing people, I was able to score some tickets to the world famous Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in exchange for my review of it.  I want to be very upfront with you here, I always give my honest feedback when reviewing something regardless of if I paid for it or not.

My Madame Tussauds review:

Let’s start this by saying that as a teen I used to be a celebrity junkie, I loved all things celebrity and I always knew when the latest celeb was released in wax, but I was the only one in our group that had heard of it.  This made me a little bit nervous that I had oversold this part of our trip. It turned out that I didn’t need to be stressed about it, it was actually a fun stop on our trip.  Here are my takeaways of the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum:

  • Madame Tussauds is located in The Venetian Casino in Vegas and quite honestly was not super easy to find.  Maybe that’s just part of the Vegas experience, but I had no trouble finding the other things I was looking for this trip, so I definitely feel like it could be located in a space that was a little easier to find or maybe some more signs or something.
  • The wax sculptures to me were hit and miss.  Some such as Jane Lynch, Shaq, and Mike Tyson and quite a few more were spot on, while others we were left questioning who they were (Jamie Foxx was one such sculpture).  Still, though, there were more that were great than not.
  • The Marvel SuperHeroes 4D Experience was WAY cooler than I expected it to be.  I felt like we were getting ready to watch something that my 11-year-old son would like so my hopes were not high for this, but I was quite surprised.  I walked out of there with a smile on my face.  Oh, and if you are wondering, yes, my 11-year-old would have flipped out over it!
  • The Hangover Experience was pretty cool.  It was too early in the day for us to enjoy a drink along with it, but I bet that would be pretty fun too!
  • The price is a bit steep.  While I definitely think I would visit again, I don’t think I would visit without looking for a coupon or a discounted price to get in.  I get that everything in Vegas is expensive, but I think $20 is a bit steep for the price.  If you want to go, be sure and take this $5 off coupon with you!  The coupon is valid for up to 10 people!

See what I mean about Jamie Foxx?

Ozeri INSTAVAC Nesting Food Storage Container Set Review

Are you looking for a way to keep your extra food lasting as long as possible?  As a family who has wasted far too much money in food that has gone to waste, I am always looking for ways to make my food last as long as possible before I toss it.

I got this Ozeri InstaVac Food Storage Set a while back and my initial reaction was that the set I got is a little bulky for my taste.  I cannot find a good space to store it in my kitchen, but to be fair I have a very small kitchen (soon to change as we are getting a new house!!), I actually have loved what it has done for my food.  I made a salad last week and ended up with lots extra, so I put it into one of these Ozeri bowls and oh my goodness, 2 days later it was still crisp.

The size of this set notwithstanding, I actually have loved what it has done for my food.  I made a salad last week and ended up with lots extra, so I put it into one of these Ozeri bowls and oh my goodness, 2 days later it was still crisp.  This has worked out so much better than those cheap sets I have been buying at the dollar store and Walmart.
