Kids Spa Coming to Colonie Center – No, Seriously

I'll start this by saying that I am a woman with a career and a busy schedule and bills just like so many. I know I'm typically the target demographic for the average "day spa" yet, I still can't bring myself to indulge. It's mainly the cost that adds an extra layer of stress and anxiety just thinking about it, which really is the opposite affect that a spa should have.

I'm definitely not judging anyone that decides to take the time to go and enjoy the facials and mud baths of the world. I've heard nothing but amazing things, I guess they're just not for me (or maybe I can't say that fully until I've tried all the things.)

Garth Brooks Makes Fans Dream Come True [VIDEO]

When Garth Brooks was in the Capital Region for the first time after 20 years back in March, it was exciting. I don't know if I've ever felt that kind of energy in the Times Union Center before. It truly was an experience rather than a concert.

It was the first time I was able to see the man himself in person and the way he commands a stage is unlike anything else.
