CALIFORNIA CALLING

see snapshots from our recent weekend in sunny palm springs

our associate copywriter, grace lee, traded the city skyline for skies dotted with palm trees and a dose of desert heat on a recent weekend in palm springs. take a peek at snapshots from her trip and read why she thinks it’s the perfect place for a city girl to relax & recharge…

“let me say this: for the record, i love new york—it’s my favorite place on planet earth—but sometimes, a girl just needs to get out of the city. and what better place to recharge than palm springs? there’s something about the open air and around-the-clock warmth that i find to be incredibly refreshing. and the best part about being in the desert? after the sun goes down, the sky is covered in a blanket of stars so bright and close, you can almost touch them.

we stayed at the parker palm springs (my second favorite place on planet earth), a darling boutique hotel outfitted with charming ceramic curiosities (7), a splashy pool scene (3) and the best fresh-squeezed lemonade (2) along palm canyon drive (1). like its sister hotel in manhattan, you’ll find norma’s cafe, with the perfect bloody mary (5) and a breakfast quesadilla (6) bursting with┬ábacon, egg & guacamole so yummy, we had to have it again the next day.

a random moment from our trip: radiohead’s thom yorke happened to be staying at our hotel. he threw a big bash at his bungalow one evening (where he ended up spinning tunes till dawn) which we tried to crash but, no dice. was worth a shot!”
