Modernism Week

Modernism Week is an annual celebration of Mid-Century architecture, design, and culture that takes place in Palm Springs, CA. Featuring over 350 events, designers and design lovers gather to tour showcase homes, discuss trends , mix and mingle at cocktail parties and much more. 

Modernism Week is also a charitable organization, providing scholarships to students pursuing architecture and design; as well as supporting organizations in their efforts to preserve modernist architecture throughout the state of California.

With Modernism Week quickly approaching, I rounded up a few of my favorite spots to visit in the area and also some showcase homes from previous modernism tours.

If you are interested in attending this year, the dates are February 15-25th and tickets are still available for most events!  

Museum of Ice Cream:: LA vs. Miami

It's no secret that sweets are my weakness so you can always count me in if there's sugar involved. The Museum of Ice Cream, where the likes of Beyonce and many other Hollywood favorites have been spotted, quickly became an internet sensation after touching down in Downtown, LA. To be honest, calling this place a museum is a bit modest seeing as though I didn't learn a thing about the history of ice cream at the LA location. Nonetheless, I had a great time taking photos and getting a sugar rush in the different themed rooms followed by a themed sweet treat. So much fun that I ended up getting a ticket to the Miami location as well for Art Basel. Both locations were set up completely different with one thing in common, the world famous Sprinkle Pool! If I had to choose, I would say Miami was a better experience because it offered more photo opportunities with fun facts about ice cream mixed in.

If you haven't had an opportunity to visit The Museum of Ice Cream yourself, check out the photos from my trips below!
