Las Vegas ladies! Mark your calendars! Our February Girls Night Out event is comin' up! These events are such a fun way to meet local women in the area to socialize, shop and network.
Our next event is scheduled for February 28th from 5:30-8:30 at Distill in Summerlin. We are going to have a bunch of awesome vendors and drink and food specials from 5:30-7:00!
Can't wait to see you all there!
Make sure to register for your free ticket via Eventbrite!
Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching! I usually spend game day at home, or at a friends house, with a ton of pals gathered to enjoy the day together. Whenever I have to prepare a meal for an event like this, I like to make food that is EASY, and makes A LOT, so I can spend the day enjoying the game rather than being stuck in the kitchen! I've found that this is the perfect meal to make for game day. It feeds a whole crowd and is extremely simple. Here are step by step instructions to make a good ol' hardy pot of fool proof Slow Cooker Chili Mac next Sunday!
*Place one pound of very lean ground beef in the bottom of the slow cooker and break into smaller chunks.
* Stir in these ingredients: 1 small chopped onion, 4 cloves minced garlic, 30 oz can of chili beans, 28 oz can crushed tomatoes, 15 oz canned diced tomatoes, 2 cups beef broth, 1 TBS chili powder, 1/2 TSP cumin, and a little bit of salt and pepper!
* Cover and cook for 4-6 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low (SO EASY!)
* In the last 15 minutes of cooking, stir in 8 oz of uncooked elbow macaroni and cover.
*Serve with cheese, sour cream, green onions, and my personal favorite, corn chips!
Thank you to everyone who came out and attended our first event of 2018 held at Distill Bar in Summerlin! It was such a fun night with a wonderful turn out of women.

Meet this month's leading lady, Stacey Prutch:
I’ve lived in Las Vegas since 1989. I’ve been a full time hair stylist for 17 years. I’m a single mom of 2 amazing daughters (21 & 23) I love empowering women and showing people they can live the life of their dreams. I walk deep in my faith and love learning about people and hearing their stories. We all have a journey we’re on called life. I love to meet new people. My hair business is very successful and meaningful. I’m grateful for the opportunity to help women feel better about themselves on the outside and have created meaningful relationships with my clients. Im building my Nucerity business part time for my future retirement. It’s given me an opportunity to grow as a woman and help people not only with skin issues but financial situations as well. The company is 7 years old and based in Houston Texas. I have a vision of growing a massive organization throughout the USA with Nucerity. I’m grateful for this opportunity to share with Las Vegas Housewives in the City what Nucerity has to offer. Our products are the newest cutting edge technology born from science. We have something no ones else has. Our technology is new, unique and one of a kind. Our breathable masque Skincerity is our flagship products. It creates a man-made layer of skin trapping the bodies moisture but allowing the skin to breathe. This product works on any skin issues form anti-aging, acne, scars, burns, stretch marks, eczema, psoriasis, dry cracked feet etc! It’s the technology that makes this product unique. It’s all natural and all of our products are water-based and plant based. I can’t wait to demonstrate and share our products and the December 6th event!
Tell us about your business and how you became the successful business woman you are today:
I've spent the past 17 years building my hair styling business. I specialize in color and color correction. I'm passionate about empowering women and encouraging them to be their best version of themselves. I began building my Nucerity International business a little over 4 years ago. We promote one of a kind, new skin technology products that have created a new category in the beauty industry "Barrier Technology" I decided to build another business so I could create a residual income and help others to do the same. I love building both of my businesses and put many long hours into helping others look and feel beautiful. I walk deep in my faith and feel we all are beautiful in our own unique way and want to bring out the beauty from within each person I work with. I love what I do so it doesn't feel like work!!

I wanted to take a moment to thank our awesome spotlight charity from our November event at Pancho's in Downtown Summerlin, The Shade Tree. This organization came out and attended our first event and collected donations for their wonderful cause. Many of the ladies who attended this event had the opportunity to connect with the awesome ladies involved with this organization, but for those of you who didn't, I will attach their website link so you can check out all of the services The Shade Tree offers to women and children in Southern Nevada.
If you haven't heard of The Shade Tree, they are the largest shelter of their kind in this state, specifically suiting the needs of women and children and proving 24 hour care for those in need. Their mission is to provide safe shelter to homeless and abused women and children in crisis and to offer life-changing services promoting stability, dignity, and self-reliance. The Shade Tree provides 100,000 night of shelter each year. It was an absolute honor to have them at our first event.
The Shade Tree is always accepting donations and their latest list of needs includes:
Bars of Soap

Thank you, The Shade Tree, for being our spotlight charity for this event!
Happy Thanksgiving Las Vegas! Regardless of if you plan on stuffing your face with a homemade 5 course meal with all the fixin's, or if you're just going to enjoy a nice Thanksgiving meal at one of the many wonderful buffet spreads this town has to offer (which I've done many times) I hope you all take this time to relax with loved ones and unwind from your crazy schedule!
Thanksgiving is one of my very favorite holidays, and not just because of the food(but I mean...who doesn't love stuffing and mashed potatoes?). I really enjoy this holiday because it gives me time to reflect on all of the things that I have to be thankful for. I know we should always be grateful no matter what the day is, but it can be so hard to slow down and appreciate all the good things life has to offer when we are constantly on the go with work and family and other crazy things that life is always handing us!
I decided to sit down today, in the midst of the hectic-ness, and take the time to jot down the top 20 things I am thankful for today. I hope you enjoy and take the time for yourself to soak in all of the wonderful things to be thankful for this holiday.
Top 20 things for me to be thankful for today:
#1- I am in good health
#2- My animals (3 wonderful doggies and the best kitty in the world)
#4- My family
#5- I love my job
#6- I get to travel
#7- My best girlfriends
#8- A hike at Red Rock is only a short drive away
#9- The gorgeous weather Las Vegas has
#10- My boyfriend
#11- Not having to set an alarm today (sleep!!!)
#12- Cooking my first ever Thanksgiving meal on my own
#13- Sweater weather
#15- My strength
#16- Bubble baths
#17- Hot tea season
#18- Breakfast on Sunday mornings
#20- Unconditional Love
Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all have had a wonderful and relaxing weekend in the gorgeous city of Las Vegas, the weather has cooled down drastically and it's GORGEOUS outside lately! I'm so excited for our November edition of Locals we Love because we just had our very first event at Pancho's in Downtown Summerlin last week and it was amazing! We collected donations for our lovely charity partner, The Shade Tree, and they would love for you to reach out to them if you'd like more info on their organization!

A special THANK YOU to our photographer Dwayne J Photography
One week. It’s been one week since tragedy struck our city. It’s hard for me to believe that such evil can exist in the world we live in. It is so easy to feel defeated and hurt when you hear horrible things such as this happening, and it hits a little harder when it happens twenty minutes down the street from you. But one thing I know for sure, love is always greater than evil. Everyone always says that Las Vegas is a small community, and the way this city came together to help all those affected by this tragedy proved that to be 100% true.
To all of the heroes that risked their lives that night to save people who had been wounded, thank you. To all of the civilians who drove strangers that they had never even met to the hospital in the middle of the night, thank you. To the people of this community who have donated and enormous surplus of water, food, and time to the blood banks for the hundreds and hundreds that were wounded, thank you. You all make me proud to call this city home.
This post is dedicated to everyone whose lives are forever changed. The injured, their families, and the ones that didn't make it. We are #VegasStrong.
Hello friends! I'm Amanda and I am the girl behind the Las Vegas Housewives in the City! I'm a waitress, crazy cat lady, book reader, coffee addict, nature lover, and good time seeker! I love meeting new people and I hope to see you at our next Girls Night Out Event!
