Thought I’d pop in today to share a few photos from the idyllic Marriott resort we stayed at in Palm Springs (well, technically Palm Desert) over the holidays. Something about palm trees + flamingos just says relax, doesn’t it? I know I said so yesterday, but I’ll say it again – I’m definitely missing warm weather at the moment. I’m not generally a resort-type when I travel, but I will say that a few days of sitting by the pool with a piña colada + a good book in hand will turn pretty much anyone into a resort-type.

So while I know I’ve still got plenty of wintery days ahead of me here in Colorado, I’ll be conjuring up a little sunshine with these tips:

1. Have a drink outside. I know right now it’ll probably have to be a hot chocolate + scarf on my porch rather than a cocktail + swimsuit by the pool, but fresh air is good for the soul.

2. Take some vitamin D + add a little natural glow. Making my own sunshine, indeed – and if that lotion freaks you out, I love Trina’s tip for a more subtle application.

3. Watch the sunset (or sunrise). That’s such a vacation thing to do, right? But I’m all for bringing a bit of vacay into the everyday + a few minutes of nature appreciation will definitely do it.

Hope you’re having a sunny day, inside + out!

      Thanks Anna! I definitely understand that…I have family in Chicago + they were all to happy to get away from all that show + cold for a little while. This time of year is the hardest…so ready for spring! 🙂ReplyCancel
