This weekend I'm headed out for a mini vacation to Palm Springs. My real-life gal pal, Stephanie of Thoughts From Cali, was sweet enough to invite me to head out to the desert oasis with her. We are so looking forward to lounging by the pool, pedicures, sangria (finally going to make the recipe I snagged from life is BANANAS) and a a laid back BBQ.
When I think of Palm Spring, besides the heat, I am reminded of the 50s, classic cars, and The Rat Pack. THE go-to retreat for Hollywood's it list over six decades ago, the city has a throwback charm that can't be denied. I'm sure Marilyn Monroe had quite a few relaxing days beneath the city's palm trees. She looked so great in a bathing suit! Don't you just love that fact that Marilyn was a curvy woman? If you can read her measurements below, they were: hips - 34", waist - 23", bust - 37". I'll certainly be trying to channel my inner Marilyn!
While soaking up the sun I'll be finishing off "Murder on the Boulevard" which was written by Kori of Blonde Episodes. Be sure to pick up a copy of her book! I bought mine on cratespace for $9.99 and it came two days earlier than I expected. What a nice surprise. Kori is also the blogger behind Fashion Friday.
