Viva Las Vegas IBS Humanitarian Trip Creates Memorable Experiences


Dear Wellness Seekers,

Viva Las Vegas IBS Humanitarian Trip Creates Memorable Experiences in support of a cause close to my heart. Spanista believes Self Care Practices that involve ‘giving back’ creates a type of heartfelt of joy that lasts and sends positive endorphins through out your body – while humbling us to appreciate what goodness we have in life. Especially thankful when we see the living conditions of others in the developing world. Over 30% of the worlds populations live on less than $1.20 and dwell in squalor.

My humanitarian calling is to advocate better living solution – a quality low-cost micro home that can be built in a day designed for under privileged populations. My tip to Las vegas is to launch a call for sponsors to support our new “AbodShelters Village of the Future Campaign” at the International Builders Show (IBS).  Here I have the opportunity to meet loads of new people and network in search of support for effort around the world with first village to be built in a slum area of Johannesburg, South Africa.  It is designed by BSB Design, a premier architectural firm that designs scale communities through the US and internationally.

Arriving in Las Vegas means seeing familiar landmarks. This time I would be staying downtown due to the fact that three major trade shows were happening simultaneously and rooms on the strip were hard to come by not to mention insanely priced. Always ready for the next experience, the hotel was rated pretty well and  I uncovered the destination featured a newly built Tower called Rush at The Golden Nugget. Also it had a well rated Spa that I wanted to check out to share with you.  The only issue is it on the farthest end of the strip away from the Convention Center. But then again nothing is to far in Vegas.


You can see my room was comfortable and spacious with a lounge area . Open space like heaven compared to my room in New York last week. The bath certainly sizable with a robe. Love robes. They add to the comfort factor. Now  the new area of the hotel called Rush Tower is the place to be – modern styling, upgrades in every way that rival the strip.

Once I settle in its off to the show to spread the world about building AbodShelters Villages around the while seeking funding to make it happen. Wish me luck, ok?  More on my trip tomorrow.

Where did you stay on you last trip to Vegas – how was it?

To Your Self Care Journey To Joy,
