CALPAK "Overnight with BAYE" Palm Springs Trip

On March 28th 2018, Bloggers Who Brunch and CALPAK hit the desert to celebrate the launch of Medium BAYE, the newest edition to CALPAK’s hat box collection. With twelve amazing influencers partaking in the journey, our #overnightwithbaye trip to Palm Springs was filled with desert photoshoots, delicious meals, luxurious spa treatments, and of course - poolside drinks and relaxation.


After departing from Los Angeles, our first stop was Palm Springs’ most notorious and welcoming landmark, THE WINDMILLS! Just a quick drive off the freeway and down a couple of dirt roads, we found the perfect spot to set up “CALPAK Café”. Now we could gush about this photoshoot for an entire blog post but we’ll let the pictures do the talking. Let’s just say our girls KILLED IT! So how did we sign off from our incredible desert shoot? Poppin’ rosé and toasting to the amazing day to come!


Upon arrival in Palm Springs, we checked in to our home for the night - the beautiful Avalon Hotel & Bungalows. This boutique hotel screams Palm Springs aesthetic with its bright yellow walls, Spanish-style architecture, and cactus-filled gardens.

After check in,

our group was treated to a beautiful lunch in the Presidio Courtyard. With the Avalon’s signature Desert Jewel cocktail in hand, we enjoyed a delicious spread of avocado toast, chicken and pancakes (who needs waffles?!), and ahi tuna poke bowls.

Next up,

the quintessential Palm Springs pastime - poolside relaxation. At the pool, our group of influencers were welcomed by Mini BAYE, the smallest (and definitely cutest) member of the BAYE family. The “clutch-like” BAYE was also filled with tons of goodies to take poolside lounging to the next level.

After a couple hours

of rest, our lovely ladies came dressed to impress for a Date Night with BAYE. We made our way to one of Palm Springs’ most trendy and picturesque dinner destinations, Workshop Kitchen + Bar. Seated on the beautiful outside patio, we indulged in many of their house specials, crafted drinks, and decadent desserts. After dinner, it was time to head back to the hotel for some rest and to prepare for an early morning of pampering!


In the morning, everyone took to the spa in their custom plush robes to experience a number of relaxing treatments - including massages, facials, and body scrubs. What better start to the day than achieving that perfect zen moment!?

For our final sign-off, we all came together for a delicious poolside brunch at the Chi Chi Cabanas. After a meal filled with fresh fruit, yogurt parfaits, breakfast burritos, and fresh coconuts, it was time to head back to LA!
