Palm Springs

When planning our SoCal vacation, we decided that we wanted to do a mini trip to Palm Springs. We were only here for a few short days but it was nice to slow down, relax, and enjoy the beautifully sunny weather. The city definitely has a laid-back vibe and it was fun to go on mini adventures!

Highlights // We hung out downtown and enjoyed milkshakes from Great Shakes. They make their own whipped cream + toasted marshmallows in-house, and combined with their was so good. We also ended up stopping by Ace Hotel twice to eat at King's Highway. Love this place and I want to stay here next time! Just walking around and exploring a bit was pretty magical. My two personal highlights from our visit to the Living Desert Zoo were close-ups with hummingbirds and some giraffes. To top it all off, we did some shopping and visited the weekly street fair before heading back to LA. Here are some of my favorite snapshots :)

This was a lovely little trip and hopefully I'll make it back out here again someday. 'Til next time!

  5. Your photos are always so rich and vibrant with color. What kind of camera do you use, and do you apply any filters or Adobe magic to them? Great photos.
