Orange creamsicle and a spa day make a heavenly treat

orangecreamsicleI remember eating orange Creamsicle ice cream bars as a kid.

It was usually during the summer after my cousins and I would swim in my Sesame Street pool in the front yard. We would walk to the corner store and pick our favorites. When I wasn’t getting my Ninja Turtle ice cream (you know, the kind with gumballs for eyes), orange Creamsicle was always my favorite. Orange and vanilla – enough said!

Fast forward 20-something years later. While I’m no longer walking barefoot to the nearby market to get my ice cream fix, the thought of getting a spa treatment with Creamsicle anything sounds too tasty for words.

Through August 31, celebrate summer with these Creamsicle-scented “Summer Retreat” specials at the spa at New York-New York. Starting at $80, you can enjoy four different 50-minute soothing treatments:

These sound so good, I can almost taste it. So, instead of checking my piggy bank for coins to buy my ice cream, I’ll be checking my bank to see if I can treat myself to one of these.

Most folks take their Vegas jackpot winnings back home, but my dad decided to stay here instead. That’s how I left Seattle almost 20 years ago. I moved from greenery and rainy days to hot summers, palm trees and desert. As much as I love my hometown, I decided to stick around Vegas. This city just has so much to offer. You don’t even have to be a gambler, bar hopper or an all-night partier. I love Vegas for its awesome vegan-friendly spots, concerts, swanky hotel suites and spas so big, they’re like castles. The pool scene is not too shabby either, which is why I love taking stay-cations. Besides living it up -- Vegas style -- I’m hanging out with my adorable baby girl, two cats and super-fluffy Shih-Tzu. I’m also a huge fan of '90s music, shows and movies.
