I’m back from the desert – Palm Springs and Joshua Tree – and I’m exhausted from the amazing time we had.  Truly, I thought about staying a few more days and calling my work to tell them I was dead.  This trip could be called an impromptu one but seeing that I’m a Virgo even with not planning this mini-vacation, there was still lots of planning.  We just had to see the Perseid Meteor Shower from the desert, so we did!  Thanks to reader Natalie A. for joining us.  Power swing!

We needed a cost-friendly hotel with a decor that would meet my standards.  I know what I like and ACE seemed to fit the profile. Great location, delicious food, wonderful decor.  I loved our room and the pool was absolutely great at 2 a.m.  Alcohol infused snow cones? Yes, please!

Since I could go on for hours and I know people don’t usually read past the first paragraph on blogs, here’s a list of the things I really enjoyed in no particular order

1. The Turkish robes in our room 2. The amazing singing/stylish hostess (above) at King’s Highway restaurant 3. Seeing meteors fly in the sky 4. Having 2 sound baths. 5. Swinging friends in hammocks 6. Thrifting lots of great things, including a vintage Gucci bag 7. Having an outer-body experience 8. Sweating 9. Night swimming & 10.  Seeing DOV CHARNEY – barf – at Revivals thrift store in P.S. with 2 of his girls buying bolero ties.  Ugh, boleros?  Could it be anymore obvious.  You can read more about that on my twitter page.

Counting the DAYS…

It is only Tuesday but I am counting down the days for our trip to the desert.  To the Integratron for the meteor shower + sound bath, Joshua Tree, and Palm Springs.  Here are some photos of ACE Hotel, where we’ll be staying.

I’m looking forward to the stars, sweating, and laying by the pool in 104 degree heat.

Back to the DESERT

Yesterday I received a message from the Integratron about the Perseid meteor shower coming up in a couple of weeks.  I was thrilled to say the least and immediately bought tickets when I got home.  For $35 I get to revisit the Integratron, have another sound bath, hang out under the stars and see some meteors.  I’m just so happy I have another reason to head back to the desert.

If you want to read more about the event check out The Mojave Desert Land Trust.  Their mission is to protect and save the desert’s ecosystems, scenic and cultural resources, and quality of life for residents, visitors and future generations.

As for my desert ensemble, considering it has been 100 in the day and 80 at night, I think I’ll pass on the faux fur jackets and leotards that I wore on my last visit.  I also don’t think I should do any more rock climbing in Sigerson Morrison flats.  Duh.  On a side note, has anyone stayed at the ACE HOTEL yet?
