I Went to the Desert

As a successful lifestyle blogger, I have to disclose every time I go to the desert, or a spa, or a beach, or Palm Springs (especially Palm Springs). And I went to the desert. I took some pictures of it so you’d know I was there.

This is the road to the desert.

This is the desert

This is still the desert.

This also the desert, which is at its core a creepy place.

I took some selfies in the desert. Don’t be fooled by my tanned body and cheery expression, it was pretty cold there.

So as you can see, like all the other lifestyle bloggers, I have vacationed in the desert. And that, my friends, is what I call a success ­čÖé

Fashion Update: It’s Hard to Pee in a Romper

It’s hard to see the whole thing from this angle, but fun pool right?

A few months ago, I expressed my resolve to wear these nerve-wracking outfits. Well, it took some time, but I finally wore that romper. I wore it to dinner during a bachelorette weekend in Palm Springs, and the ensemble was quite a success.

The romper is cute! I added a thick belt for a more defined silhouette, and a lacy blue bandeau bra helped with the backless-ness situation. It also features straps that crisscross in the back and have to be snapped in. This makes peeing next to impossible – it involves completely undressing. Then when you’re done, you have to sort out the strap situation, contorting your arms behind you to snap it closed while someone bangs on the bathroom door at a Mexican restaurant in downtown Palm Springs and you can’t figure out why one of the straps keeps twisting. Anyway, big fan of the romper! Excited to wear it again.

Does this donut make up for the fact that I forgot to get a photo of the back of the romper?
