Somehow I managed to visit Palm Springs twice in 3 months, so I’m recapping my second trip today! (My first PS trip is HERE) I definitely recommend going in the Spring vs Summer because the desert heat is no joke if you’re not used to it. We would wake up early to shoot before it was too hot, but we still managed to catch the 110 degree temps! Karli, Kelsey, and I flew into LAX and drove over on Thursday. Looking back, I’d probably spend the extra money to fly directly into Palm Spring’s airport! LA traffic is the worst, so an hour and a half trip to the desert can quickly turn into 3 hours+ as we found out. Lol!
We collaborated with Acme House Company, which I highly suggest using if you’re heading to Palm Springs! Half the group stayed in The Kirk Douglas House and the other half stayed in the For The Record House. Both were beautifully designed and had that classic Palm Springs touch! Acme House Company was amazing to partner with, and they always went above and beyond for us. I’ll link their website HERE so you can find out all the details about them! And if you’re a pink fan like me, their Pretty In Pink House is a MUST 🙂
My favorite part of the trip was a last minute idea that actually came into fruition! The girls who flew into LA decided to leave Palm Springs early Monday morning, so we could have lunch at The Beverly Hills Hotel before our flights. We made reservations the day before and had such a perfect lunch with overpriced, yet delicious avocado toast! This is a hot spot you have to visit for the memories. Plus it’s super Instagrammable as you can see above! I’m going to leave my favorite places we ate at and favorite photo spots below!
