Anonymous said: Will you stop posting on your tumblr now?
No It’ll stay active— I think my blog and my tumblr-blog serve different purposes. I just sort of like how clean and organized my dot com is for certain content, as opposed to the stream of reblogs on tumblr (which is also fun… but, again, for different things).

You have to take a drug test for EVERY company in Vegas.
Anonymous said: knowing where you work, can you give me your honest pro / con comparison of marque vs hakkasan? also, if i'm coming into lv with 2 or 3 peeps, is that too few for vip table service?
They are different atmospheres, I think. Both can be fun and a lot about what you’ll think of each place will depend on who is DJ’ing the night you go, and what kind of music you like. I had worked at Hakkasan before attending as a guest, so I think that skews my perspective. Before I lived in Vegas, Marquee was one of my favorite clubs and was part of the reason I wanted to cocktail in Vegas. There isn’t really a pro/con list that I can type up for you… I just personally prefer the “warmth” and energy of Marquee as opposed to the cavernous feel of Hakkasan. No way, I serve smaller parties all the time. The only difference between having a party of 3 and a party of 5 is that you’ll each be paying a higher amount if you split the bill, and you might end up with more alcohol than you can drink. But I have faith in you. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations if you’d like~
Anonymous said: Hi Lauren! Can you suggest any great places to do hair on Oahu? I get stuck with this dilemma more often than not and haven't found a place that I absolutely love. I'm hoping to get a cut and color at a reasonable price. Thank you for always being so sweet and patient with all of our incessant questions. Your new 'do is amaze!
You’re so sweet, thank you!! Still getting used to it. On Oahu, I would go to “Salon Reve” in town. If I recall correctly they have a lot of good reviews on yelp and depending what you get done, they are reasonably priced. Specifically, Holly is a stylist there and so many of my pickiest friends trust her exclusively. You can look up #HollyHair or @HMBhnl on instagram to see some examples. I used to go to Reve, or RyanJacobie Salon in Chinatown. The thing about RyanJacobie is that some of the stylists are great and some are a bit of a miss, I just can’t remember the name of who I used to go to- oops! Good luck~!

None come to mind… the only thing I can say is that, if you’re a man, hire a cute little secretary who wears tight pencil skirts and fashionable heels and let that ease your pain. Eye candy always helps.
Anonymous said: tabloids? but this is tumblr. ok I guess
My point is, it’s against policy. Why do you care so much.
Anonymous said: Sworn to secrecy? Why go out to one of the most popular clubs in Vegas only to want to keep it a secret? Ok...
Why are you giving me attitude about it? Not every celebrity wants their business in tabloids etc, and to respect that is a company policy.
Anonymous said: What celebrities have you met while on the job? And who was the best?
Sworn to secrecy 😉 Most celebrities don’t like their business being spread around so we have to respect that.
I don’t get excited about celebrities very much, but there have def been a few I’ve fan girled over.

Anonymous said: What champagnes are the top 3 in bottle service?
Seriously with the 20 questions about bottle service. I mean good luck on your interview but you should know this without my help—
Anonymous said: what did you wear to your interviews? what kinds of things did they ask? I have one tomorrow with Hakkasan and am super nervous. sorry for being annon!
Being an anon is kind of obnoxious :/
Anonymous said: How did you get a job working in Vegas? Was the interview process hard, or pretty much got hired because you're awesome and bad?
The Vegas interview process, the “audition” process rather, is insanely retarded and competitive. I was surprised I got hired straight from Hawaii to be honest.
Anonymous said: what made you decide to move to vegas? how did you get a job at marquee??
Spontaneity. I applied, interviewed a million times with every manager, and got it. Open auditions. Recommendations. The hustle. Some luck 😉
