Palm Springs Getaway: The O Spa

Welcome to paradise aka The O Spa. If you’re looking for the perfect weekend vacay, I’d high recommend making the trip! Whether you decide to rest your body in the warm mineral spring waters, chill in the private cabanas, or enjoy the 24-hour access spa room, you are in for a treat! Oh, and this resort is an Instagrammer’s dream! Decor to the nines with a touch of “hippie chic.” Talk about the ultimate getaway!

Bae and I were looking for a retreat of sorts, one that would take us away from hustle and bustle of the city! So we figured, “lets go to the desert!” There are so many trendy hotels in Palm Springs so we thought we’d just go ahead and book any of those! But thank goodness for my indecisiveness!! I suggested we looked at Airbnb and I am so happy we did! Bae presented me with a few private cottages and one resort a bit outside of PS. Now, although an entire cottage to ourselves sounded appealing, I just could not look passed the countless positive reviews of The O Spa. From what everyone was describing, this place was an experience rather than just a relaxing stay! But let me tell y’all: The O Spa surpassed all expectations! But just be forewarned, not even these photos do this place justice!!

The O Spa:

Located in Desert Hot Springs, just 20 mins away from Downtown Palm Springs and 30 minutes away from Joshua Tree National Park, lies one of the prettiest oasis’ I’ve ever seen!

As we walked in, Rick, the owner greeted us at the gate and gave us the initial tour of the place! I mean, we were literally in awe! Not to mention, we had the entire place to ourselves, yas!

Once we got back to our fab room, we decided to hit the pools! Now, the pools were my fave part! Natural spring water + you could adjust the temps, YASS, honey!

We spent a good chunk of our time chilling in the water with a bottle of champagne, watching the sunset.

For dinner, we were surprised with how many dining options were just a few minutes away! I mean there was Thai, Mexican, American Grill, ah!  To end our night, we went into the spa room where jazz music was conveniently playing and literally zenned out. Soon after, we dried off in one of the patio areas, around a cozy fire pit!

The entire resort looks almost prettier at night! Rick installed LED multi-colored lights throughout the pools and patio area. I would show you, but you’re just going to have to check this place out for yourself, hehe!

Anyway, the next morning we woke up at sunrise to experience more of what this place has to offer!

We seriously did not want to leave! What a dream of a place, truly! If you’re looking for a home away from home, some TLC, private lounges, and killer amenities, The O spa is your place! We seriously can NOT wait to go back! Xo

Our Road Trip to Solvang

It is no secret that the boo and I love exploring nearby towns! We try our best to jam pack our weekends with road trips, site seeing, and of course a good time! This week we decided on Solvang, CA. We both went to college nearby but surprisingly, I had never visited this quaint town during my time in the Central Coast.

Abundantly rich in the culture of the Danish settlers, this village is historically preserved with gorgeous architecture, tasty bakeries, authentic restaurants, wine rooms, flowers galore, and some of the warmest people I have ever met! It was truly a utopia of its own.

We ventured for the day but with so many activities to enjoy, we decided to plan for a weekend getaway in the near future!

I had always heard great things about Solvang and now I know why! I would definitely  suggest planning a trip to this picturesque historic village as soon as possible! Xo

 

Frolicking in the Flower Fields

For my 25th birthday, I wanted to celebrate in a setting that exuded beauty and tranquility.

Naturally, the besties and I took a mini road trip to The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch

An Instagrammer’s dream really, this place was pure perfection! The fields spread across farther than the eye could see and the aroma was to die for!

Prior to frolicking around, we brought some picnic food, bubbly, laid out a huge blanket on the grass and soaked up the sun!

I would definitely recommend this gem to anyone who is looking for a cute day trip, ideal photo op, date idea, etc. You can literally wear any color outfit because there are an array of colorful flowers for your liking! The fields are open for only one more month so go out and experience this beauty for yourself ❤ Xo

What To Wear For a Desert Road Trip

Hey, guys! If you follow me on IG: @_jasminvanessa you might have seen that I went on a weekend getaway to Joshua Tree National Park, a couple of weeks ago.

Considering Coachella season is upon us, I thought I would share some looks I brought along with me to the desert.

Packing for the desert presents a specific set of challenges… during the day it can be either windy as hell or dry AF. During the night, prepare to experience almost freezing temps, ha!

Luckily, you can pull off a range of your favorite outfits as long as you come prepared!

*I have also attached the links of where you can find these items*

What to pack:

Fedora Hats & lots of em! Macy’s
