Crush the Desert: Palm Springs 2014

Time with my girlfriends nourishes my soul. Whether it’s HH, a weekend away or true vacay, my friends give me energy and inspiration. This past weekend we invaded the desert, from the oasis that is the Sparrows Hotel to a beautiful, 3-bedroom home I secured through Airbnb.

While the 100-degree heat challenged any will to explore or actually DO stuff, we made up for the inertia with plenty of sun, bubbles and straight real talk.

Not a bad setting for a weekend getaway.

Easy access to AC and beer.

My morning setting/routine. Critical biz with the InStyle mag.

Double birthday celebration and toast with delish wonders from Over The Rainbow Cupcakes. Yes, please.

Dousing my meal in this heavenly sauce at El Mirasol.
