PS, I Love You

After this weekend, that title definitely stands for: Palm Springs, I love you! 

I spent my Saturday and Sunday in the desert with my best friend Elysse.  Awhile back I decided that a girl's weekend in PS would be a great holiday gift for my bestie as well as a relaxing mini trip for me!  And since we stayed at The Ace Hotel, it also meant that I got to stay somewhere that I have been ogling for awhile.  The hotel was absolutely awesome, I totally dug the vibe there, but the best part was definitely catching up (in person) with one of my fav people EVER!

Here is a little photo-diary of my trip:

Wind turbines on the drive in.  This is when you know you've arrived!

My babies!  I brought these little succulents along for the ride (I did a little mini photoshoot with them for a DIY project coming up so they weren't totally random).  I kept calling them "my babies."  Doesn't everyone bring along their own decor to their hotels?  They should, all the cool kids are doing it!

I love the vibe at The Ace, including the interior design and signage.  

The lobby has this crazy, cool nautical robe display.  It is very picture-worthy (hence the pictures).

It looks so desolate in this picture but really there was a bumpin' pool party going on behind me.  I was lucky to snap this when people weren't out-and-about.

These bushes/flowers are spectacular!  Their color is absolutely gorgeous.  Love the grey + yellow color scheme.  I took a bunch of pictures of these plants.  I really want to know what they are...I want to fill my yard with them.

To me, the desert is all about earth tones and textures and this picture sums all that up for me.  

A girl's weekend would not be complete without a fruity-girly drink!  Yummy strawberry margarita.

Such a cool sign.  Iconic and totally picture-worthy.

Some of the suites at The Ace have private balconies with fireplaces but they also have communal fires which is awesome for girls on a budget.  After drinks in the Amigo Room, we warmed up by the fire.

Another shot of the cool lobby + cool man!

On Sunday we had brunch at Pinocchio's.  They had fun, fringe umbrellas which I definitely appreciated.

The scene of the crime...yes, I crafted in my hotel room.  Doesn't everyone?

Us.

So that was my weekend in pictures.  I have other ones that I haven't gone through or processed yet and I may put those up sometime soon as well.  Also, Elysse has behind-the-scenes pics that I may share too.  It was amazingly fun and relaxing and I loved every minute of it.  

What did you do this last weekend?  Anything fun?  I must admit that we booked this trip and didn't even realize it was the Super Bowl until a few days before leaving.  Clearly my priorities are not football.  My priorities are basically everything but football.  I imagine that many of you were doing Super Bowl related things.  Anything fun? 

Also, if for whatever reason, you want to see more of my pictures, you can see my set on Flickr.
