Hello, Mr. Parker.

We had a wonderful time in Palm Springs (as always). This time we ventured outside of our comfort zone and decided to try breakfast at The Parker Palm Springs famed Normas, just down the road. It goes with out saying that the grounds at The Parker are gorgeous, it's very lush, and green. My only complaint is that the vibe isn't as laid back as it is as The Ace Hotel. If I had to describe the vibe at The Parker it would be trust fund bohemian,  but that's beside the point. Breakfast here is to die for. I had the crunchy french toast and Mr. Davis had the salmon benedict. I'm not a huge fan of french toast, but the plate here is now one of my favorite breakfast dishes. The french toast was moist, but not soggy, coated in caramel and rice krispys...yum.

Hey! Let's Get Away

In less than a week we will be on our Palm Springs mini break. I already can't stop day dreaming about brunch and champagne at The Parker. Here's my brunch dream outfit compiled of mostly Wildfox Couture and Jeffrey Campbell platforms, the pink and mint are so dreamy. Until then here's to lounging by the pool with a margarita in hand at The Ace Hotel and Swim Club, just a few more days.

Star Crossed Lovers

I can't get enough of the Wildfox fall lookbook. It came out in June, but it's been way to hot here to post pictures of sweaters and pants until now. The collection is based on this alternate version of the 1997 Romeo and Juliet movie, but only this time the Star Crossed lovers, the Capulets and Montagues; and best friends who got away! A road trip through Italy, a 90’s extravaganza of Italian inspired clothing, a dream of roses and Cherubs, emerald green, gold, pink, turtlenecks, and giant, romantic plaid dresses! This is definitely bringing back some high school memories.

Dry Clean Only


I have dry, thick hair, so I tend to wash my hair once to twice a week. Well, also I'm lazy and my hair takes forever to dry on it's own and it takes me about an hour to blow dry it, which is why I opt out of frequent washes. Although I have thick hair, the roots tend to get a bit oily after day 4, and why deny it the roots also get a bit smelly. But, I still really like how my hair looks when I don't wash it, so for all these reasons I have been on the hunt for the perfect dry shampoo for the last few years and have yet to find one that I actually like using. Here are some of the recent ones I've tried.

I really want to go outside and stop to see your day

Over the weekend we stopped by North Park to have the most delicious oatmeal cookie at Heaven Sent Desserts. Luckily for me there's a cute vintage store next door called Ms. Vintage. The store has the cutest pink walls which are offset by the colorful clothing. Unfortunately I didn't find the batwing dress I was looking for, but I'm planning on going back soon. _DSC0462 079-0416-Edit-Edit _DSC0466 ms vintage2 ms vintage IMG_0088 IMG_0086 IMG_0085 IMG_0104 IMG_0103 IMG_0102 Pretty street art.

Drive-in Movies

For the past two weeks Cliff and I have been going to drive-in movie night at The Pearl Hotel. We've been meaning to check out The Pearl Hotel movie night for a few years now, but since its always during a week night, we never managed to make it. That is until, two weeks ago when we decided to have dinner and drinks, as well as watch their screening of Dirty Dancing. We tried a little bit of everything on the menu and let me tell you it was all delicious! My favorite was their cheeseburger dubbed "the best burger in town" and let me tell you they're not exaggerating...it's super yummy. The hotel had a vintage, but modern motel vibe and I love that they screen movies above the pool...we've been back twice since then for more movie and drink nights. So happy to have found a new haunt. P.S. I read somewhere that their bathrooms have been voted nicest bathrooms in a San Diego restaurant. Well, I took some pictures on my phone and it just doesn't seen like a big deal to me. Other than that no complaints. 36165_113190565410346_106275729435163_96963_3329953_n IMG_1063-1 IMG_0060 pearl hotel IMG_0073 pearl hotel IMG_0061 Seriously delicious ice cream sundae.

Palm Springs Je t'aime

It's a gloomy morning in San Diego, but here are some sunny and warm Palm Springs pictures from my iphone. I can't get enough of small square pictures and I can't get enough of Palm Springs. Also my charming husband took a small video of me bike riding and turned it in to a lovely loop. Hope everyone is staying warm on dreary winter day.
