There’s mystery to the desert. It’s so alien, so empty, so unruffled—and that’s exactly what makes it so keen for an art festival. With endless space and a strange sense of vast void, how could it not play as the perfect blank canvas for experimental minds? Such was the thought process behind Desert X.

The inland desert oases of Southern California make for the perfect showcase venue of contemporary artists. Palm Springs puts out the welcome mat and provides the charm, while the surrounding Coachella Valley operates as host for Desert X’s curated exhibition of site-specific work. The ongoing festival is scattered throughout town and valley, so it has all the makings of an assumedly more cultured scavenger hunt. While Desert X first opened its arms in February, it’s still going strong. In fact, the art festival doesn’t close up shop until the end of April. The installations are free to behold and there's no ticket necessary. However, your best stop to kicking off the artsy adventure is the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs. There, you can score a catalog and a map, along with the festival's merchandise and the artists' books.

We love and know Sonix as the uber cute, kitschy iphone case and accessory website... But what happens when they round up their squad of like-minded friends? Pop-up magic - that's what! Amongst the Sonix's product on Melrose is brands Ivy Kirzhner, Gorjana Jewelry, Emm Kuo, Bite Beauty and Stone Fox Swim. If the curated brand line-up isn't enough, the design team behind this pop-up made the entire space an instagrammable moment complete with a cherry blossom tree and swing dead-center in the middle of the shop and trending blush tones covering every wall. Sold? We thought so.

This pop-up is only lasting one more weekend so don't miss out. Shop the latest Spring ’17 collection at their exclusive FIRST EVER pop-up shop at 8017 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles 90046. Delivering up the details and dates behind this grand idea is Creative Director, Jillian Wheeler + PR Manager, Mallory Molinski.

REPORTER: The Venue Report



This week's #RealWomenReport is all about one of our favorite girl bosses that just opened New York City's newest wellness hot spot. Cyndi Ramirez-Fulton and her team of innovative wellness seekers saw a need in the bustling streets of NYC when it comes to on-the-go TLC for busy people. Cyndi sought to bring, "a downtown escape for city dwellers seeking a modern path to total relaxation with style, character, and ease." Well, this beautiful (and totally convenient) spot does just that. Chillhouse brings the trifecta of a day well spent to the Lower East Side with a cafe, nail and body focused menu with a light and airy, yet modern vibe designed by EAU.

No stranger to the hustle of entrepreneurship, Cyndi is also the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Taste The Stylea lifestyle blog and brand for the modern working woman. With a forward thinking mindset, Cyndi has a keen eye for discovering unfulfilled markets (on more than one occasion) and expertly offered a solution with her savvy girlboss style. We caught up with her about her newest endeavor on brining well deserved R&R to The Big Apple.
