One of my favorite, relaxing destinations is Palm Springs – I love the hot hot heat, and the immediate sense of both relaxation and pleasure that takes over me when I get there. It’s a really great spot for a bachelorette party; cool house rentals (with pools!) are plentiful (like here, here and here) and a good choice for large parties – perfect for a weekend celebrating the bride!

Above are a few of my favorite things to pack when I head out there to the desert – do not forget the sun protection!!
