BEHIND THE SCENES VOL. 3, PALM SPRINGS
Gurl’s, we had the BEST time visiting Palm Springs! The incredible heat wave that Palm Springs was experiencing kind of spooked us a little, but there really is something to be said about dry heat. We are used to humidity, so the first day or two without humidity was wonderful. Staying in the shade, getting in the pool occasionally, drinking lots of water, and renting a cabana that had misters was the plan that worked for us.
We stayed at the Parker Palm Springs resort, and this place was amazing! Joe has always held every place we’ve ever stayed to the Ritz Carlon in Cancun, and nothing ever measured up until now. The rooms were gorgeous, the property was so unique and full of history, and the food and service were exceptional. He is already making plans to visit again, possibly early next year.
We were in Palm Springs because I earned the trip through Rodan and Fields. R+F is the skincare regimen I started using soon after I began blogging, and I’ve used it consistently since early 2016.
Sharing my fashion, my beauty products, my family, and my skincare is part of my way of helping women, and it is what I love to do. Did you know that September makes SEVEN years that I’ve been blogging?!?!
I’m going to be celebrating the rest of the month! For the entire month, I’ll be randomly giving away a few products such as jewelry, Vera Bradley items, Rodan + Fields, and who knows what else. Be sure to check back daily so that you never miss a thing. TODAY, I’m going to give away a mini regimen to someone who takes the RF Solution Tool. The solution tool will let me know which mini regimen is best for you so that I can hook you up with the correct one for your skin. Because R+F is only offered in the US, Canada, and Australia, I can only gift a mini regimen to someone in those countries. Click Here to take the Solutions Tool.
One of my first blog posts from September 2015. I’ve sure learned a lot in the past seven years. Here are a few stats that blew my mind!
It all starts small, and in September 2015, I had a total of 2,088 pageviews. Last month was the largest amount of pageviews I’ve ever had, and that was over 575,000 views.
Over the past year, my blog has been seen almost everywhere in the world! That is mind-blowing to me, and it goes to show the power of the internet. I appreciate each and every one of you who are going along with me on this journey and remember, you are never too old or too young to try something new.
I’m sure you’ve heard the song “it never rains in Southern California.” Guess what??? It POURED our last day there. Lol! A lot of gurls have left me comments saying, “can you send California some of your rain?” Turns out, I brought it with me, so…You’re Welcome!!! Haha!

Hi Tania. I’m glad you had a wonderful trip. It is lovely out there. I wanted to take the TOOL test to have a chance at a prize, but it was forcing me to leave contact information. Since I don’t like being inundated with junk mail (I decide what’s junk) and texts, I refused. I know you get compensated for luring people in but I will not participate. I do really love your posts and appreciate the try ons and advice.
Janus, I did have a lovely trip. And, just for the record, I don’t get compensated for luring people in for anything. The contact information is sent to me so I can discuss any skin issues you might have. If I email you, that would be the extent of emails you would get unless you became my customer.
Your husband is so cute!!
Thanks for all the good clothing ideas. I am leaving in Belgium. With your pictures i try to find in the Belgium shops. Also for the blog. It”s always to read these.
I didn’t find an alternative for the R&F.
Have a nice evening.
Looks wonderful, even with the heat. Good to see you and your husband enjoying time together. And so many photos of Joe. Good for him, making it onto the fashion blog. Haha.
Beautiful pics – you look great in your swimsuit BTW.
I’m impressed. Your Joe let you take photos of him. Mine finds sneaky way to hide his face. I rarely get a good shot of him. Thanks for all your work. I really enjoy your blog. Especially, the scripture verses.
So glad you enjoyed Palm Springs, the Coachella Valley has lots of lovely places to visit and live. Speaking of, next visit I bet Joe would enjoy The Palm Springs Air Museum.
Michelle, he saw the museum as we were leaving out and said, “WHAT???” He would have went there for sure.
Congrats!!!!! I live here and the Parker is one of the best! Yes the rain was so welcomed!!!! Happy you and Joe enjoyed our beautiful Desert!
Palm Springs looks wonderful! I may need to add to our travel list.
Where did you order the pink dress? It is beautiful.
Carol, here is the link for the dress:
Congrats on your win win!
If you decide to return next year you may want to consider visiting during the month of March. The temperature is not as hot.
Great pictures of you and Joe! And I must say that you looked fabulous in the bright pink dress and the way you styled your hair was perfection! Safe travels back to VA.
Congratulations to you on your well deserved success…I start ever morning ready your posts..they make me smile and happy..
Congratulations on your accomplishments! The resort looks wonderful. I love my Rodan & Fields products!
I enjoyed reading about your trip. Congratulations on earning the trip. You and Joe are a good looking couple. Thank you for ALL you do for us gurls! Safe travels home.
Glad you had a nice time in Palm Springs! I wanted to tell you that I have been using R&F for about 6 weeks now consistently and I can see a difference!! I am pretty impressed. Once I found the right formula it made a big difference!
Glad you two enjoyed yourselves. Loved your hair “slicked back”.
Congratulations on your rewards for being so successful, your husband (and family) must be very proud of you as well. Your a wonderful person and helping so many ladies daily.
Fabulous getaway! I love Behind the Scenes!
Okay, who is Kenneth? Does Joe know about him?
What a beautiful resort!
Y’all look good and the food looks amazing LOL
Looks like Joe’s got a sugar moma. Lol You look so great in that pink dress. God surely loves you.
Congratulations on your incredible success Tania! That resort looks fabulous!
I cracked up when I saw the food you two ordered! My husband, Joe, would have ordered the same thing as your Joe and I would have ordered what you had!😆
I would love to try R & F, I have never used the product before. I love your blog, it is the first one I look at every morning.
