Little-known fact about me: I LOVE the fair!!! Growing up in Sacramento (the capitol of California), going to the State Fair was a huge deal- my family has competed in baking competitions every year for at least 20 years including this one. I'm so glad I moved to L.A. where they take their county fairs very seriously. This is my third trip to a local fair this summer and I would totally not be opposed to a fourth. Stay young and stay adventurous.
As always, you could have seen it sooner on Instagram & Snapchat (@nivelliot)
I wore Prabal Garung for Target dress, Rebecca Minkoff bag and Forever 21 sandals.

[And sun sun sun all down our necks] - Palm Springs, CA


I posted part one a couple days ago where we checked in at The Saguaro, swam in the amazing pool, got dinner downtown, took the Palm Springs Aerial Tram up the mountains, and had a movie date. Part two happens at Elvis' Honeymoon Hideaway, back at our favorite pool, visiting Shield's Date Farm, and getting a late dinner at The Ace. See the video here.

I've been reminiscing a lot about our honeymoon at The Saguaro hotel in Palm Springs, so I thought I would share a travel diary from the week. You can always check out the wedding pictures on Instragram, using our hashtag #MeetTheRubys and I made a video of the day, here; but we never posted pictures from our trip, so here goes...
