Coachella is always my favorite time of the year and this season, the parties were especially epic! The classics like Neon Carnival, I always look forward to as well as some new events like Victoria’s Secret Angel Oasis. This year we made it a double date and I traveled around with my girl, Kristi from Currently Crushing. For all the music, you can livestream the performances at live.coachella.com, as for the parties here’s a peek into them! All the parties featured in the video with details below!
COACHELLA DAY 1
Pre-festival hike with with Asics and Cobra Fitness Club.
If you’re in the Palm Springs Area, the Tahquitz Canyon Trail is a beautiful way to start the day. Asics outfitted guests outfits including these ASICS DynaFlyte sneakers for a pre-festival hike.
Victoria’s Secret VS Angel Oasis
This party did not disappoint, set in a beautiful mansion and with impeccable grounds there was not a shortage of activations or VS Angels dancing! They customized Levi’s denim jackets with angel wings by Phoebe Paints and Julia Adelina. Sarah Potempa of The Beachwaver and her team were doing hair (just like at the VS Fashion Show!), while Tarte was on makeovers (yes, their Shape Tape is everything it’s cracked up to be), and LECHAT was providing nail art and gel manicures. Frasier Sterling was also customizing chokers and RAD + REFINED was bedazzling their sunglasses and featured a special performance by Bebe Rexha! They also debuted their new Sexy Little Things collection, which is so hot! Quick slide show below of some favorites!
PrettyLittleThings.com x Paper ‘The Pretty Little Playground’ Party
Paper magazine teamed up with PrettyLittleThings.com to host a fun party with special performance by French Montana. The event featured a PrettyLittleThings.com store and an endless dance party, not to mention a food truck which is the sign of any good party.
COACHELLA DAY 2
POPSUGAR Cabana Club
I always look forward to the annual POPSUGAR Cabana Club as a time to connect with bloggers all over the country. This year they threw a fabulous pool party complete with a Nordstrom suite showing off the Kelsey Montague Art wall, which you probably saw countless bloggers Instagram holding the illustrated balloons. Ulta Beauty hosted a beauty suite with hair and makeup as well as customized makeup cases you could fill with select products from NARS, Becca, Smashbox and more! They also had select merchandise they feature in the POPSUGAR Must Have Box. All I know is I wish I had room in my suitcase for this Flamingo Candle.
Hosted by the Bumble app, it was apres-ski at it’s finest — or as well as one can pull off in the desert. Fake snow, tubing, and a braid bar by Batiste dry shampoo. There was also this magical closed off room which made you feel like you were under the stars — you have to see the video to see what I’m talking about, it was so pretty!
Nudestix x WWD
I stopped by the Nudestix x WWD x Socialyte pool party, it was a small intimate gathering of bloggers lounging poolside. There was some product on display in the bathroom but for the most part we just played with the blow ups and took in a relaxing moment before hitting the next party.
Desert Jam Lucky Lounge x BMF party
Hosted by BMF and sponsored by Lucky Brand, Homeaway, and Splat it was a fun pool party at the Ingleside Inn filled with drinks, poolside games and a color bar by Splat! I even got my braid chalked with their hair chalk!
Hosted by Levi’s, it never disappoints as the it party of Coachella. A modern day (and late night) carnival complete with rides and games all over the place. Only it also has free pizza, open bar, and an epic dance party, making it the most fun ever! We always have the best time partying like kids, running around, and playing on the bumper cars and riding the Ferris Wheel,
COACHELLA DAY 3
Revolve hosted another beautiful retreat at the Merv Griffin estate, complete with a skating rink, unfortunately it was too hot to do anything besides drink coconut water and gorge pizza while laying poolside starring at all the beautiful people — not that we’re complaining. It was the best way to relax on our last day of the festival.
Nylon Happiest of Hours
This was one of my favorite parties, we played with the Foster Grant Sunglasses, Nike gifted sports bras and styled them under different outfits while Milk Makeup gave makeovers. I feel like Nylon has my style down and all the sponsors made it so fun! Sports bras, sunglasses and makeup… consider me easy to please!
