Beauty and Grayse | Grayse Restaurants Shops Greater Palm Springs

My first stop on El Paseo is always Grayse. I like to see how our team has merchandised the store and connect with our sales team.

Head-To-Toe Sparkle | Gucci

I’m always inspired by Alessandro’s creativity at Gucci, and I usually indulge in something sparkly like sneakers or sunglasses.

I’ve had the pleasure of sampling some of the items from [Kitchen 86’s] menu. The cauliflower crust pizza is my favorite. I can’t wait for everyone to be able to enjoy the small plates menu.

Home(s) Away From Home | Desert Luxury Estates

I don’t have a place in the desert so when I’m looking to go out and hang for a few days, I always use Desert Luxury Estates to find me the perfect property.

Turn Over a New Leaf | The Leaf Restaurants Shops Greater Palm Springs

[The Leaf is] my favorite new business on the street! I’m obsessed with the THC/CBD bath salts. I’ve had three shoulder surgeries and two knee surgeries, so when I want to turn back time, I jump in the bath.

Palate Pleaser | Wilma & Freida Restaurants Shops Greater Palm Springs

I always try to carve out time to grab a quick bite [at Wilma & Frieda] and stop in to say hello to Kelly, the owner, who knows just how to tickle my palate!

All Things Beauty | Sephora

Sephora is my one-stop shop for all things beauty. A girl can never have too many lip glosses, mascaras and beauty products. My personal favorite is Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Lip Gloss.
