{frosting} palm springs moments

Danelle Deojay, Sequins and Ponies, Palm Springs

Palm Springs is my happy place. A short drive east, but a million miles away, when I’m in this desert mirage of mid-century heaven, there’s no choice but to relax and decompress. A few girlfriends and I have made a hot August weekend an annual getaway, and it’s a favorite new tradition in my LA life. Here are a few snaps from my trip…

{friday frosting} packing procrastinator

23 Sep

It’s already Friday and I’m off to Miami tonight for a quick trip. I’ve been procrastinating packing for several days, which I do every time I travel until I sit down and write out a list. Given the interesting mix of hot, humid, and thunderstorms going on right now in South Florida, I’m going for simple combinations in light, flowing fabrics. No doubt, it will be the weekend of the headscarf.
