Spa-tacular specials

Times are tough and money may be tight, but does that mean we can’t pamper ourselves to melt the stress away? Certainly not!

For me, I’ve found the best way to truly escape my worries is with a relaxing spa treatment. From massages and pedicures to facials and body wraps, these make a world of a difference. Fortunately, spas on the Strip are offering specials that won’t burn a hole through your pocketbook. 

The Spa at Mirage is offering the Bilssful Retreat – a package that includes a Swedish body massage, manicure and pedicure – for only $145. You can also get The Vegas Quickie (target massage and Freshen Up facial for $99), Renewing (Swedish body massage and customized facial for $150) and the Just for Him package (Black Tie Affair Gentleman’s facial and therapeutic massage for $160). All of these specials are 40 percent off the retail price. Call (702) 791-7472 to book your appointment.

At the Spa at New York-New York, you can get a hot stone massage for $115 (retail price $135). Also, if you book a 50-minute nail treatment, you’ll also receive a mask upgrade (a $25 value) for free. The mask uses charcoal derived from burnt coconut for detox and hydrating elements, while incorporating peppermint extract to stimulate circulation and soothe. It’s definitely worth it! Call (702) 740-6955 to make your reservation. Make sure to mention code “Spring 2009.”

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 handsome hubby, adorable baby girl, two cats and super-fluffy Shih-Tzu. I’m also a huge fan of '90s music, shows and movies. You can find me on Google+ and Twitter.
