Palm Springs is one of my favorite quick getaways for a romantic weekend with Sam. It offers the perfect opportunity to lounge in the sun, spend time with each other and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The desert oasis also happens to be the best place to experience the old Hollywood vibe of glamour and over indulgence. No matter where you stay, it feels like you still might see Greta Garbo and Clark Gable sipping martini’s by the pool or Bogie and Bacall snuggled up by a blazing fire pit. We love ordering ludicrous amounts of room service, driving the long desert roads, and letting the sun and Champagne cause dizzy laughing spells. It gives us a chance to stop and appreciate how lucky we are to be able to work together and enjoy each other’s company even after 9 years.
Vacations like these are made so much easier when you pack correctly. While I love the feel of old Hollywood glam, I don’t believe in spending hours primping just to look perfect. I bring along my hair brush, mascara, lipstick and a product to keep my hair smooth like Wella Professionals Elements Leave In Conditioning Spray which is an easy way to protect and lightly style your tresses. I mean think about it, would you rather ride with the top down or have perfectly coiffed hair? I’m more of a top down kind of gal.
