That’s truly the golden hour.
Waking up for my trip to Palm desert was something like Christmas…with all the butterflies, expectation, and crazy nervous energy you get before opening a pile of presents. But instead of ripping the paper off of Christmas goodies, I got to drive to the desert with all the colors of the most glorious magenta and lemon colored sunrise, stopping in the middle of the desert for one of the most magical photo shoots ever, with the amazing girls from thetwophotography. Check out more of their beautiful work here!

While you’re site seeing on the Venice Boardwalk, stop by Schulzie’s for some of the best bread pudding in LA. Try their salted caramel, lemon custard, and cookies n’ cream.
Meet the love child of donuts and croissants. Stop by 3 square Cafe on Abbot Kinney for cronuts; the newest craze in the pastry hemisphere.
I’m a huge fan of tiramisu, and matcha green tea takes this classic dessert to a whole new (and delicious level). Enjoy with a green tea latte and a dollop of dairy-free whipped cream at the adorable Main St. hot spot, Urth Caffe.
If you’re on the Westside, try the home-made goodness of the Westside Tavern‘s banana pudding, equipped with warm peanut butter cookies.
L.A.’s most secret dessert spot? b.l.d (cleverly standing for Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner.) The last Sunday of every month, you can enjoy SPIKED milkshakes. From Chocolate oatmeal stout with Jack Daniels, a caramel milkshake with Sauza tequila, and raspberry-clementine float with Grey Goose Orange. Who said milkshakes are just for kids?
I’m dreaming of the desert…Of wide open spaces, rambling thoughts for a rambling road….where there’s no where I have to be, and all the time in the world to get there. Filling up with the calm, crisp, immortal beauty surrounding me, and the quite power that lights a blue fire of imagination and wonder within my soul…I’m dreaming of the desert.
