PALM SPRINGS DESERT OASIS

One of the reasons I fell in love with Palm Springs, was because during my late teens I was introduced to one of my former best friends’ beau/fiancĂ©e who was from there. His movie-star appearance and laid-back jovial persona had such a glamour of Hollywood vibe about him, you couldn't help but fantasize of what it must be like. Ever since my interest was peaked, I've always wanted to visit this extremely hot part of the California desert he occasionally talked about. Recently after over two decades of fantasizing about this place, the hubby and I finally retreated into this beautiful desert for much-needed R&R. Being careful to not ruin our first impression of the Palm Springs experience, I felt there was no other place better suited for our first encounter more than Korakia. Thank goodness for that instinctive choice, because retreating to that desert oasis made our getaway there even better than expected!

As soon as we arrived at this Moroccan inspired Mediterranean villa hideaway, we felt as if we were transported into a secluded serene oasis island in Santorini Greece or to Morocco. Suffice to say, we enjoyed a magnificent several days lounging around in hammocks and beautifully cushioned daybeds by the pool, reading, relieving our minds and souls. Since the place is within walking distance to their main downtown/uptown strip, we decided to walk everywhere in town our first day there. The evenings were spent unwinding, watching old classic movies on a nearby outdoor screen (not too far from one of the fire pits) under dark starry nights lit up with the occasional streaks of shooting stars.

Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind. This life makes it so easy to get caught up in career goals, we sometimes can forget how important it is to take the necessary time to mentally and creatively recharge. I couldn’t be any more grateful that we chose this desert jewel, as it was the perfect place for meaningful encounters and experience stillness for those several days.

FEEL BRILLIANTLY REFRESHED


Feel Brilliantly Refreshed

I might not be much into makeup but I love testing out new beauty products, especially ones with words like, lightweight and hydrate. Today I’ve partnered up with this.is.feel to try their hydrating floral mist lightweight skin toner and bamboo sheet mask. What woman doesn’t love to self-pamper at the end of a long day relaxing with a nice cooling rejuvenating eye mask on?  I’m obsessed with keeping my skin hydrated (as much as I am with having fresh flowers throughout my space at all times), especially after the dryer months of winter, ranking these products high on my must-try list for replenishing that moisture back into my skin. Since I normally don’t like to be the only one to enjoy a good thing, this.is.feel is kind enough to help me make your day a lot better by gifting one of you lovelies these two products in celebration of the blog’s relaunch. Isn’t that exciting! See details on how to enter on Instagram. Best wishes!

Last Winter Style: Chunky Knit Poncho

When talking about a wardrobe staple, chunky knit ponchos are one of those must-haves for me. In the winter months, I favor clothes that make me feel cozy and snuggled as though I were sitting on the sofa wrapped in a soft knit blanket. Ponchos are the perfect alternative for that feeling of being cocooned that I’m after on a crisp winter’s day. I love how by simply throwing one over a favorite pair of jeans and a cashmere turtleneck immediately dresses up the look. The fringe detail on this one, combined with the chain details on the bag and the over the knee boots, make it the perfect balance of simple and standout.
