Caesars Windsor Staycation

I seriously cannot wait to come back for that dish alone

Staycations across the border are one of my favorite kinds of staycations simply because I can brag about being in a completely different country all the while it is less than 5 minutes away from Detroit.

I had the pleasure of visiting Caesars Windsor Hotel Thursday night with a treat to see comedian Whitney Cummings – who was hilarious by the way. Even during rush hour (which is the time I crossed the border), I was able to transition across the border with no issues or visits to immigration. As long as you have an enhanced license or your passport, you’re able to easily get across to Canada (via the tunnel). I travel to Windsor quite often to get my lashes done every 2-3 weeks so I’m fairly used to the ease of entering and leaving Canada. You’d expect it to be quite the hassle but as long as you state your reason for coming and keep it very simple and direct, you’ll have no troubles almost every time. Windsor is a quick 5 minutes away if you’re already located downtown Detroit.

I checked into my room in the Caesars Hotel in the Forum Tower which is newly renovated and immediately was greeted with the view of Detroit’s city skyline which was breathtaking. I had a huge comfortable king size bed and living room area with sofa and ottoman. The room is filled with mirrors which is clearly the running theme throughout the hotel which I love because who doesn’t like to look at themselves from all angles?

For dinner, I had the pleasure of dining at Neros Steakhouse and was greeted by the most considerate and amazing waiter. We ordered the roasted Atlantic lobster tail pasta which comes with shrimp, crab, and scallops – absolutely superb, the best thing I’ve ever had and I don’t like shrimp much or pasta and I was blown away. I seriously cannot wait to come back just for that dish alone. We also ordered the crisp seared crab cakes which were also delicious. We found that it didn’t need the citrus taste that it had but it was still delicious despite it. The duck fat roasted potatoes didn’t disappoint and also was presented beautifully. The noodles in the Atlantic lobster Mac and cheese were not noodles I’ve ever had but it too was also surprisingly delicious. To pair with our meals, I had the Pinot Noir which was great because I was looking for a good red wine to drink that wasn’t too bitter or dry and my friend had the Riesling. The waiter was both knowledgeable and considerate and gave nothing but the best suggestions.

The Whitney Cummings show was truly entertaining. Despite her constant quips against Detroit which were regrettably funny, she surprised me and had amazing, natural energy. All in all, I enjoyed myself thoroughly and would completely recommend the Caesars Hotel as a great option for a staycation that is also a change of scenery for those looking to escape Detroit for just a little while. The convenient thing I love most about the Caesars Hotel is that is 10 minutes away from downtown Detroit which is no different from any other place of leisure you’d think to visit down the street from you downtown as well.

 

Thank you for supporting the brands that support me.

A preset created by me just for you should be underway, yes?

A preset created by me...

How do you utilize the Direct Message feature on Instagram? Do you use it for leisure? Do you use it for sharing memes in group chats with friends? Do you use it to 'shoot your shot' with a potential significant other?

I'll tell you a secret: it's all I do.

Guys have this interesting theory when sliding into a girl's DMs: "slide in as many as you can...eventually one will say yes," and I've been running with this theory ever since.

Social Media Managers of your favorite brands almost always see your DM even if they leave the message unread in the DM requests. The goal is to give them a reason to respond. If you get a response, they may tell you to reach out to them via the generic email in their profile. However, you don't want a generic info@InsertBrandHere.com. Emails to generic email addresses can get lost on the way to whom you're hoping it'll get to or you could never get a response. You want a specific name to a marketing director that can get you answers to how you can participate in paid collaborations faster.

Why you should start using Direct Messages to reach out to brands: • it's faster
• your Instagram profile serves as an immediate resume so they never have to leave the app
• if they find that you are a good fit (because you've fixed the 7 struggles we mentioned in my previous post), they're more than likely to respond almost immediately
• you can build relationships with the marketing manager faster that will be beneficial to you for future partnerships

Now that we have that understanding, it's important you know what to say to get an answer when you slide in the DMs of a brand. You need to ask for the marketing manager in charge of the brand and you want to give them a reason to give you that person's direct contact. Without that reason, they'll direct you to the generic email already on the page.

The reason that you want to give is that you want to send over your media kit to the marketing manager. Brands love seeing data about how you can bring value to them. When you do this, you will almost always receive the answer you're looking for.

So tell me now, are you sliding in DMs the right way? Comment below. I wanna hear how you slide in✍🏾

I don’t like wearing pants. If you know me I’d prefer to be bottomless. A uniform of bottomless bottoms that don’t cut of circulations, aren’t trending, and don’t require spanks or overexpose any fupas to come underway would be delightful.  But until then, these fancy ones will do. Link in bio on the blog.

I’m pretty inconsistent with almost everything my life especially the gym. I hate the weight I’ve gained and I hate that I can’t control my brutal and unhealthy, self-sabotaging eating habits right now. But I plan later in the winter to take my trips to @theviberide Detroit real serious along with a potential gym trainer 💪🏾 What’s something you’re planning to be more consistent with?
