Party In Palm Springs

The last time I was in Palm Springs, I was filming reality TV scenes for the first show I starred in. My first impression of the hot desert destination involved a visit to We Care Detox Spa & Spiritual Retreat where I did a juice cleanse, endermologie treatment, liquid diet and a colonic. Let’s just say that I always told myself I would come back and really experience this sunny paradise.

I loved the clean streets, friendly people and the close-up mountains that frame Palm Canyon Drive. 

So charming!

OK, you asked for it.

This was one of the best weekends away. I fell in love with Palm Springs and can’t wait to go back to make more memories!

  1. Aw, this was a very nice post. Spending some time and
    actual effort to generate a top notch article… but what can I say…
    I put things off a lot and never manage to get anything done.
