When in Palm Springs…

best western

View from the 2nd floor of the Best Western

Palm Springs was definitely my favorite part of last weekend. The sun, palm trees, and the view of the mountains never got old. My friends and I stayed at the Best Western Plus Las Brisas, which was both close enough to our Coachella shuttle stop and plenty of restaurants. We lucked out there!

When I go back, I would definitely look into renting a house in that general area because of how much variety there is in terms of food (priority #1). But if you would rather stay in a hotel, the Best Western is great as a home base for sleep and being by a pool. There are also plenty of hotels close by as well.


Here are the 3 restaurants/cafes we went to:
*all within walking distance*

1. Thai Smile: Once we landed, we were starving…their dishes are delicious and hefty (no complaints here). I had their Pad Thai and there was plenty left over. Should have  brought it back to the room (rookie mistake).

2. Palm Greens Cafe: Pretty much ate here everyday before the festival. Their guac and chips, macro bowls, sandwiches, mimosas, and organic rosé were all delicious.

Only photo I got from this because the food was so distractingly good. 

3. Raw Remedy Organic Juice & Raw Food Bar: For when you need more health. Their berry cool smoothie and avocado toast were both delicious. My friend, Trina really liked their protein bar and smoothie bowl.

Trina, my Coachella partner in crime. This was right next to Raw Remedy. Lots of cute little areas for photo opportunities. 


Can’t wait till my next trip out there, hopefully soon.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope your weekend is full of relaxation and good food.

Model Lilly Norris

P1060521Meet Lilly:

Model Lilly Norris absolutely adores the outdoors! You can find her camping, hiking, rock climbing or even just enjoying nature. If she could be a fruit or vegetable she would be a strawberry, because they’re (a) delicious, (b) very cute, and (c) they grow wild…just like her!

“My dream is to model for Vogue and to be able to make a positive change in the lives of women who are suffering from trauma.”

Her main goal is to be able to use modeling to travel internationally and raise enough funds to open her own Women’s Trauma Centers in underprivileged areas. She is currently studying business so that she can help provide the necessary resources to trauma victims.

Fun fact: She’s competed in nationwide engineering competitions where her team electronically wired 120lb. robots!

Her favorite tv show to binge watch is Game of Thrones because the women in it are so kick ass. “Daenerys could have my heart any day of the week.”

Lilly is fascinated with super villains. Speaking of which … Poison Ivy is her favorite. She likes to cosplay and go to different conventions.

Fun fact: Lilly creates her own cosplay outfits.

Her style is a mash up between (1) a sexy Gothic club goer (2) a hippie straight of out Woodstock and (3) a CEO of a major company.

Lilly has modeled for Charleston Fashion Week 2015, 2016 TIBI NYC 2016, Atlanta International Fashion Week.
