A Day In Palm Springs

Lifestyle, Travel

We moved out of the Coachella Valley towards the end of last year, yet we find ourselves back there a lot of the time. We visit our family pretty often, and sometimes we enjoy a nice day out doing some of the things we love most.

A couple weekends ago, our 2 littlest ones stayed the weekend over at my parents, and we had such a nice little day date with our firstborn.

We started our morning with some delicious brunch at one of my favorite little spots in Palm Springs, FARM. If you’ve yet to try it and if you’re ever in town, it’s a definite must try. Soo good, and the scenery is just beautiful.

My usual is a Grilled Chicken Sandwich with a lemonade on the side. So delicious!

After brunch we decided to hit up one of Desert X’s locations, and it was pretty cool to say the least.

If you’re not familiar with Desert X, it’s an annual art exhibition displayed throughout the Coachella Valley by many artists who create and showcase some pretty rad -but amazing- art.

You can find a map with all of Desert X’s locations: here

We ended our day with some dinner and ice cream with my brother in law, and we finally stopped at the Palm Springs windmills to get a quick pic right before heading back home. The Valley holds a special place in my heart, and I will forever be in awe with its beauty. So glad my husband & I were able to spend some much needed one on one time with our firstborn, we sure made it a memorable day.

See you all in my next post, gender reveal coming soon! (:


The PRESS Espresso

Lifestyle, Travel

Hey guys! If you know me, you know finding cute coffee shops is one of my favorite things to do, and recently, I finally had the opportunity to visit a shop I had been dying to go to for months! This coffee shop exceeded all expectations I had, I figured I may as well blog about it, and tell you about my experience.

First and foremost, the staff, wow. They were super friendly, and I loved the service they gave my husband, baby, and I. They were very kind when giving me suggestions of all their best selling lattes and pastries, and they were all so very kind to Max – kid friendly coffee shops/employees are everything.

The coffee- SO good. I tried 2 different lattes (one hot, one iced), and I really loved them both. One in particular that my husband & I can’t stop thinking about, the rose vanilla latte. Delicious, and possibly the best latte I’ve ever had in my life!

The shop/scenery- Amazing, beautiful, glamorous yet modern. By far, this has been the prettiest shop I’ve ever been to. I was telling my husband that if I were a coffee shop, this would be me. The style, the vibes, the decor, the greenery.. y’all, even the bathroom was glamorous. It was beyond beautiful, and the fact that I had an amazing experience, just adds the cherry on top.


The outside was beautiful too. It’s located in a little center surrounding a few unique boutiques that also seemed intriguing. The boutiques were closed when we made it to the shop, so we definitely plan on going early next time.
