Palm Springs - Summer In California

Leave a Comment
After an amazing few days in LA the girls and I took a road trip down into the blue skies and blazing suns of
PALM SPRINGS for Labour Day Weekend. 

We stayed at the J.W Marriott honestly the sunrise and sunset over the mountains has to be the most epic things I've ever seen on all of my travels. 


Ace Hotel
Ace Hotel - King's Highway: Crispy Jidori Chicken Sandwhich  

Ace Hotel

Joshua Tree - It's about an hours drive from our hotel in Palm Springs.  Joshua Tree at night is quite special.
You can clearly see the stars, the milky-way, constellation and occasionally a shooting star. It was such an amazing experience, no lights, in the warm dark which felt like the middle of nowhere, playing music from the car and gazing at the stars. Me and my camera was at war this evening but none the less I will always have this shabby picture to reflect on why things are best seen in person...hahaha.

Salton Sea - Salvation Mountain
We drove out about an hour and half from Palm Springs to see Salvation Mountain.
It was created by Leonard Knight who passed away in 2014, it was his tribute to God and a great one.
It has passages, tunnel and stairs bright colours and scriptures of the bible.
Salvation Mountain.

Los Angeles - Summer In California

Leave a Comment

I spent the end of summer in Toronto & LA...
LA was so inspiring, the architecture was stunning, the art was vibrant and the pace of the city was serene. 
From the moment I landed I felt at home. 
First night in LA my friends took me to a Japanese restaurant where I had awesome Miso Soup! It was so filling. 
After that it was time for CA Donuts...! They have such cool flavours and styles of donuts. Ones with fruit loops, a cookies & cream panda or my favourite the croissant donut with nutella & banana - LIFE!
 The queue says it all and yes, it's worth the wait!

Abbot Kinney - Filled will the cutest cafe's, art painted walls and shops! As if we finished yesterday's donuts we
found ourselvein Blue Star Donuts trying Rosé Hibiscus donut. It was insanely good!
Santa Monica has a city beach and a lot of entertainment across the pier as well as funfair rides, food stands and merch. We took a stroll a long the beach and then walked along the pier listening to these two guys play Afro beats and some Drake it was live!

3rd Street Promenade - The promenade is right beside Santa Monica Pier. Go shopping, have lunch or pick up a 
frozen yogurt at Pink Berry! For all the Sephora lovers you will find one along this strip.

LACMA - Los Angeles County Museum Of Art

The Getty  - The Getty Center was one of my favourite places to visit in LA. The drive going towards the museum is stunning. You see all these amazing houses, landscapes and pretty views in general; but nothing quite like the views you get at The Getty Center. Once you arrive they have a shuttle train that transports you to the Center which is free, including the museum. They have exhibitions, things to see and a never ending pool of viewing points that overlook LA.
