Palm Springs

The boyfriend and I went on a mini vacation earlier this week for his birthday and our destination this time was.....Palm Springs! I thought we should go somewhere neither of us have been to before and since it's Summer, it's a lot cheaper to go there right now. 

I chose to stay at the San Giuliano Hotel, which was a small boutique hotel that offers 8 rooms and each comes with your own private patio and outdoor jacuzzi! Where else could you get that?! It was absolutely perfect and was a small piece of paradise. 

We spent two days relaxing by the pool, jacuzzi at night, eating, and hiking in the mountains. It was a perfect way for us to wind down and just take some time to ourselves. Yeah, it was hot, but no more than 105 degrees. A lot better than it being 115 degrees the week before we got there! 

Palm Springs was so relaxing and the entire city gave me this vintage Old Hollywood feel to it. Loved it!

I hope enjoy the pictures!
