DESERT WANDERINGS

It felt like we were the only ones here. From our room we could see nothing but sweeping desert as far as the eye could see. From sunrise to sunset the colours change, pastel hues of rose and gold to the earthy tones that I love so much. As we watched the clouds roll over threatening to give sweet relief from the heat of the day we spotted a desert cottontail rabbit nibbling on what was possibly sage or saltbrush. It’s advised to not wander in the desert outside of the hotel trails but it’s big ears and cute nose had us curious what other family members might be out there….

THE TWELVE DAYS OF ENDOTA SPA

endota Pays It Forward
I’m not sure but if you’re like me I’m guessing you’ve had a big year and the tank is a little empty, the body a little tired. When endota spa offered me a little TLC I was in the car, jewellery off and bathrobe on before you could say “ooooooo, just below the shoulders thanks”. Yet, I couldn’t stop thinking about the people (particularly the women) from my community who often put the needs of others before their own, selflessly and tirelessly and who wouldn’t have the time or means to nourish themselves in this way. I also knew that the good folk at endota spa make it their mission to help you reconnect with your best self so I turned the proverbial car around and together we decided to pay it forward, so you too, could do the same.

DONALD

I am not a journalist. Shocking, I know. To be honest I am slightly rattled about writing this introduction (see below rookie move…of course Mitford doesn’t speak, idiot).  You see, I feel the man in question here is so beyond clever, witty and prolific that I cannot bluff my straight up fanning into something equally as entertaining and thought provoking as his pop culture musings and family observations (#buythemnothing is going somewhere, I know it). My creative crush in question is Donald Robertson (@drawbertson). By day he’s the Senior Vice President of Creative Development for Estee Lauder (can I intern?) and by night he’s fashion’s favourite artist and possibly my favourite instagrammer. Described as the Andy Warhol of our generation for his speedy cartoonesque depictions of everyone from Anna Wintour to Beyoncé, there is no doubt he is one crafty dude; but add into the mix his real life moments as father to five children (including toddler twins Charlie and Henry who pretty much steal the instagram show) and it’s hard not too smile, laugh and feel the need to get out the bloody gaffer tape. …
