If you ladies follow me on Instagram you saw that I made a quick ladies only 😉 trip to Palm Springs this weekend. Palm Springs is one of my all time favorite getaway spots! Its only about an hour and half from Orange County (without traffic) and is SO relaxing. The neon sunsets, warm evenings and endless cocktails by the pool are just part of the desert charm! To be honest I had been pretty anxious about going on this trip for months in advance. I’d never left Ava overnight and even though I knew she’d be fine but it was me I was worried about! I’m not going to lie I may have teared up a couple times before we left just thinking about it (I know total mush and first time mom). Thankfully once we got on the road I was good to go! It was much needed little escape and we had so much fun! Here are some shots from our quick desert getaway….
There are tons of hotels and resorts in Palm Springs but I LOVE staying at the smaller boutique style hotels. They have that old hollywood charm! This trip we stayed at The Colony Palms Hotel and I highly recommend it! The hotel has morrocan style decor throughout the property and tons of charming courtyards with lots of florals and greenery. This hotel really can accommodate many types of groups. Its great for families, a group of girlfriends and I even saw a few prego moms on their baby moons ;). Its pet friendly as well! It was so cute seeing a few well behaved dogs lounging poolside with their owners! I personally know I could never bring Louie because she would be all over the place lol.
The next morning we headed over to the must go to brunch spot Cheeky’s (which was right across the street from our hotel) but there was over an hour wait! So we turned right around and came back to our hotel. To come find out the Purple Palm restaurant in our hotel is one of the best in the city! I HIGHLY recommend coming their for at least one meal while you’re in town! How cute is the decor? No surprise its empty inside during the day because everyone was dining on the poolside patio.
