travel // girls weekend in palm springs

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

hi guys! today for tourist tuesday i wanted to quickly recap my girls' trip to palm springs this past weekend.  olivia, tammy, farra and i headed out for a little girls weekend saturday morn ing. we spent the day at the pool sipping cocktails and soaking up the sun, followed by a fun dinner out in downtown palm springs. we wrapped up the weekend with some more relaxing and breakfast poolside before we had to head home. it was the perfect little getaway.

now, for the details! 

where we stayed: the saguaro palm springs by joie de vevre. you guys, this hotel is amazing! once an old motel, it has been transformed into a rainbow of fun! each room is a different color inside and out. the pool is the center of the action and has brightly colored lounges and towels. there was even a dj out at the pool when we arrived saturday. plus, the pricing is very reasonable and they offer complimentary 2pm checkout! i highly recommend the saguaro and know i will be staying there again, hopefully soon!

where we ate:  las casuelas.  this restaurant is one of my favorite spots to eat when i visit the desert.  whether at their palm desert location or their downtown palm springs one, the food is amazing.  we were sat quickly with great service.  i had the black bean burrito (no meat - remember?) and it was delicious.  no margaritas for us this time, but i can tell you that they are just as great (if not better) than the food!!  it's definitely a place to stop when you're in palm springs. 

what we did:  relaxed! and boy was it needed! the girls even let me sleep in on sunday morning (till 10- crazy!).  lots of pool time cocktails led to many laughs and silly pictures while soaking up some sun.  we even met a fabulous gay couple who are shooting their own show on bravo.  the music and cocktails were outstanding, but the company really made the trip!

we had such a great time this weekend.  i can't wait to get back out to the saguaro for some more relaxing.  i'm looking forward to staying more than one night and checking out the two restaurants that are on the property.
