Ice cream is a daily ritual for me as you’ve probably noticed through my insane number of ice cream Instagram posts. My friends also know that I measure the value of a lot of things in ice cream. For example when I was at WWDMAGIC in Las Vegas, a few of the other bloggers asked if I wanted to gamble. They said, “C’mon just a few minutes. It’s only $20!” I responded, “that’s 4 ice creams and no.” My husband knows that we need to have a freezer stocked with ice cream. I don’t ask for much, just 3 flavors of ice cream in the house at any given point.
I believe that ice cream is a sweet dessert meant to be enjoyed year-round, not just summertime. But I get it, some of you wait all year to indulge on #NationalIceCreamDay. I’ve rounded out my favorite spots in Los Angeles to help you celebrate this very important holiday. I’ll be indulging at my all-time favorite spot, Carmela, and enjoying my favorite flavor, strawberry. If you celebrate today, tag me in your Instagram so we can be ice cream soul maters, because that’s a thing now!
