Palm Springs Getaway Guide

Hello and happy Monday!
I hope you’re all having a great start to your week. Things have been crazy busy the last few weeks, and I’m wishing I was back on vacation again for a few days- especially as I was finishing up this Palm Springs Getaway Guide.
If you’re thinking about heading that way for a weekend, check out what we did!

To Stay

We stayed at the Marriott DoubleTree Resort just outside of Palm Springs! We had a great suite overlooking the pool and golf course. What I loved the most about this hotel was the pool area! In addition to the usual tanning chairs, the pool area is sprinkled with hammocks, comfy outdoor couches and games like life-size chess.

To Eat + Drink

Koffi is a great spot to get your caffeine fix. Both the coffee and iced tea were delicious and if you have a minute to sit down and enjoy your drink, their back patio is filled with tons of greenery and a great view of the mountains.

Carl’s pick, Draughtsman, is a great industrial brewery in Downtown Palm Springs. I’m not much of a beer drinker, but Carl loved the Lost Abbey beer he had. The food was also amazing- perfect lunch portions and really filling.

Travel Essentials

Summertime means vacation (hopefully!) and with that, travel! If you aren’t properly prepared, an uncomfortable flight can set even the most exciting trip off on a sour note. And no one wants that, right?

Between going to college out of state for four years and traveling abroad for a semester, I’ve definitely picked up tips and tricks to make airport travel a little more relaxing (well, as relaxing as it can be).

Two weeks ago Carl and I traveled back to Ohio to be in my friend’s wedding and we spent Memorial Day Weekend road tripping up to San Francisco. Regardless of whether you’re traveling by plane or car, there are a few essentials that are a must.

The Best of San Diego

With the warmer sunshine coming, spring break and vacations are right around the corner, who doesn’t have a break on their mind? I’ve been doing some spring re-arranging and decided to decorate this little corner of the house with fun prints and pieces (adult spring break haha) and thought a it would be fun to do a post on vacationing in San Diego!

With a variety of different neighborhoods all with their own vibes, Instagram-worthy photo ops, killer beach views and more, San Diego is the ideal California vacation spot. Whether you’re an avid outdoor adventurer, a foodie or just eager to cross well-known spots off your bucket list, there’s something for everyone. If you’re planning a trip down the coast, check out my five must-see stops!


  If you have the time, head to downtown and hop on the ferry across the ocean to Coronado. After being a Southern California native for my entire life, I finally visited for the first time for my birthday last year. Coronado is an absolute blast if you have a day to enjoy it. From the collection of commercial and local businesses that line the streets to the quaint homes and over bounding greenery, it feels like a summer getaway town.

 Must See: The iconic Hotel Del Coronado! There’s something to do here year round, even if you don’t book a stay. The pristine beaches that make up the perimeter of the hotel are perfect to drink, lunch, bike ride and tan. This makes a great stop for both family fun days and romantic getaways.

Bachelorette weekend recap part 2! I just want to wrap up the end of the bachelorette recaps with one of my fave parts of the weekend- BRUNCH. (duh) Seriously guys, brunch warranted a post all on its own.

We actually had no idea where we were going to brunch when we were in Palm Desert, but we had dinner at a delicious sushi place and our waiter recommended Pinocchio’s, which apparently is crazy popular and well-known for not playing around when it comes to brunch.
