Weekend Reading 5.22.21

Happy weekend and hello from Palm Springs! We are having a blast and it is so great to be here, it’s such a cool little city. I will do a recap of our trip and everywhere we went/ate/etc once I’m back home and settled! I have really missed the West Coast. This week was a good one. Lots and lots of deadlines, the launch of Marysia’s new (mostly sold out!) sport collection, and time with my parents. I got into LA yesterday afternoon and we drove out to the desert straight from the airport. Now we are here in Palm Springs for the next two nights and then doing a night in Santa Monica before I fly home on Tuesday.

Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s wonderful and relaxing! Also a little sidebar – if you haven’t watched Mare of Easttown, wow… make that your weekend TV. The last episode was bonkers. I’m taking a few days off from the blog (will still be on Instagram) but will be back Weds with a new post! XOXO

    Adding that rooftop list to my CHS to-do when I come visit! I’ve only done Citrus Club and it was great, adorable, and a delicious Paper Plane cocktail that I still remember it was that good.
