a note from NICOLE
Palm Springs is a stunning desert oasis known for its hot springs, stylish hotels, golf courses, and spas. A sun-drenched city that shines with its mid-century modern architecture, vibrant arts scene, and rich cultural heritage deeply rooted in the Cahuilla Native American tribe. It is the perfect setting for FUN, INSPIRATION, and REJUVENATION. Framed by the majestic San Jacinto Mountains, it offers a unique blend of natural beauty and man-made wonders. Palm Springs is one of my most loved places and is a perfect place for those seeking relaxation, inspiration, or a touch of the Hollywood golden era's glitz and glamour. I hope to share with you one of my favorite places on this planet and, as always, look forward to giving you a beautiful experience for your maker heart.
