If you follow me on Instagram (@soulcalchels) then you know I was in Palm Springs last weekend for my friend Colin’s birthday. It was sort of a last minute, get me out of the city, game time decision. And what more perfect time to get away than Memorial Day Weekend?

We stayed with a big group of friends at the Ace Hotel, which happens to be one of my favorite spots in Palm Springs. The decor is a subtle mix of minimal meets warm leathers and prints, and the avocado toast is world class. We made a little stop over at The Parker for breakfast at Norma’s one morning (YUM), but most of our days were spent relaxing by the Ace pool, taking photos and drinking fruity cocktails.

As a creative entrepreneur, it’s so important to find new ways to explore the world, be it 2 hours away in a car or 1/2 way around the world in a plane. New places provide new inspiration, making the day to day seem suddenly spectacular through new eyes. This weekend was a perfect combination of laughs, sunshine and friends-just what I needed to refresh my focus and create some killer new business ideas. Stay tuned for more of that coming soon!
