4 Majors

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 presetOne of my favorite pictures from Coachella got noticed by Planet Blue (bikini on the right is PB), and they felt the need to let us know my best friend looks hot in their bikini, while my booty is apparently looking good for 26. I’ll take it!

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetMy mom recently gave me my baby book and after reading it cover-to-cover I am now fully aware why I have this borderline crazy obsession with her. It was both comedic and endearing reading my 22-year old mother’s thoughts while raising me and I could not be more thrilled to have that book in my possession now.

Lastly, having my measurements taken by Galia Lahav herself for my wedding dress was beyond the most amazing experience. I am so excited to share pictures of this phenomenal dress I have picked…if only I didn’t have to wait another YEAR to do it!!

Coachella Packing List (+ why)

coachella packing list1. Chapstick: As if I didn’t already have a crazy chapstick addiction, the desert winds definitely do not help my situation. A full tin of this stuff is a necessity for this weekend.

2. Hat: It is H-O-T during Coachella. Some people think the hat traps heat on your head but I am convinced otherwise. Of course opt for something light and breathable.

3. Frends: Why would I bring headphones to a music festival you ask? Well, for one, there is the drive there and home. But I have a tendency to fall asleep throughout the day and will need some noise cancelling Frends to help me out.

4. Fanny Pack: Sure, they are 80′s…but I seriously do not want to carry my stuff around. Instead, I’ll let my waist do the heavy lifting.

5. A practical outfit: It’s hot. Period. I don’t know about you, but I cannot prance around all day in something that is going to stick to my body uncomfortably. I need something conducive for peeing outside (well, in a portapotty), for the heat, and for laying on the ground (seriously).

6. Water: Hydration is everything at Coachella. It sounds awesome to be drinking (alcohol) all day but really it’s not. It just isn’t.

7. Sunscreen: SPF is another essential item that you must not forget.

8. Boots: It’s dirty and dusty out there. I found myself barefoot last time just to avoid the dirt getting in between my toes. So no, sandals are not an option for me this year.

9. Blanket: This one should be a give-in. You need somewhere to sit in between shows (or during) and the grass can get itchy, dirty, and grimy after three days.

10. Coachella App: If you aren’t aware, there is absolutely no cell service at the festival, so the app should be downloaded to help you map out your stage appearances ahead of time. It is supposed to notify you where to be and when…let’s hope it still functions without service!!

Festival Style

coachillin

It’s that time of year when everyone starts gluing flowers to string to make headbands, beads are strung to make arms and arm of bracelets, and onesies are purchased to be worn as a full outfit. Sound familiar? Maybe to those anti-DIY people you have no clue what I’m talking about, but I’m sure my readers are well aware I am referring to Coachella. With the festival starting next weekend, I thought it would be appropriate to throw on my hippie gear and hit the rocks for a couple pics. While it was fun draping my body in jewels, the 100+ degree weather doesn’t seem to be calling my name this year.

I do wish everyone the best time and am looking forward to the pins on pins of Coachella outfits bound to come my way, but I will comfortably remain in Sherman Oaks shaking my own drinks and having my own dance party in the AC. If you are looking for a non-Coachella Coachella this year leave me a comment and we can shake and dance together!

Coachella

Last weekend I graced Coachella with my presence. I never really thought I would enjoy the festival, but contrary to my beliefs, I had a blast. Playing dress up was by the far the best part but I did enjoy hopping around, going from full rave fist pumping (David Guetta) to gentle swaying (Gotye) as the sun set. While I would NEVER, in a million years, camp, I will probably be back for some more Coachella festivities next year :) The most important things I learned:

*Blended watermelon & vodka is the ONLY drinkable alcohol in that heat

*Hats will only make your scalp sweat, so load up on sunblock, giant sunglasses, and head jewelry

*DRINK WATER!!!

*Fake jewelry will turn your body green REAL fast

*Having a beautiful house with a pool to stay in (that is walking distance from Coachella) is key!

*Being barefoot isn’t so gross after a few drinks ;)
