california adventure: palm springs

Let me just say it, I am obsessed with Palm Springs, CA.  The mid-century architecture, hipster vibe and hot weather make it an ideal location for a weekend away.  I spent this last weekend lounging by the pool and sipping cocktails at the Ace Hotel.

I had actually heard a lot of good things about the Ace and was really excited when one of my girlfriends planned her bachelorette weekend there.  It is a blend of 50's and ultra modern.  Minimalist rooms, diner, vespa rentals and pool-side service.

Palm Springs is about 2 1/2 hours outside of LA and the perfect desert getaway.  I flew in on Friday, where I met up with the rest of the girls for dinner and margaritas.  The next day, we were up early to have breakfast by the pool and then a full day of reading, napping and dipping in the pool.  SF does not  have the type of summers that encourage being poolside, so it was amazing to experience complete relaxation of doing nothing but enjoying the scene, sun and cocktails.  

Saturday night, we went out to dinner at an amazing farm-to-table restaurant, Workshop Kitchen.  Amazing fresh foods and a glass of wine was the perfect ending to the sunny day.  Sunday was more of the same (but hotter).  I often forget how refreshing it can be to simply do nothing.  No site seeing, no crazy plans.  Simply an adventure of spending time with good friends in a new place.
