It’s that time of year! The Palm Springs area has been packed full of people from all over the world going to Coachella Fest. It’s crazy to me how big this festival is! I have only attended 2 years which is probably surprising since I was born and raised here, but I’m not a huge concert person. Plus the festival is so expensive! I loved the days when you could just buy 1 day for $100. Wish that was still possible.
A few years ago I discovered another whole side to Coachella Festival season, the parties! Company sponsored parties to be exact. To me, they are like their own mini festivals with free goodie bags, open bars, awesome djs, and celebrity sightings to boot.
This year I had the pleasure of attending multiple parties!
Thursday: collide kickoff party at the hard rock.
Had a great time drinking mandarin Moscow mules with absolut mandarin vodka. Delicious. They also have out “survival gear” which included a tillys fanny pack with the coolest portable charger that I used all weekend. Plus I got this awesome henna tattoo.
Friday: the dfm house and galore magazine x missguided party.
The party was partly sponsored by Snow Leopard vodka which was so good. They had also been the sponsors for the dfm house last year. So I was happy! Got a really cute snow leopard vodka towel.
Jill and I had the pleasure of meeting the tone it up girls! Karena and Katrina. They were so sweet and down to earth. It was funny because I had just sent Jill an invite to join the bikini series with me this year. I’m excited to get my body into shape.
The funny thing was, I had shot this house for Airbnb so I knew it was a smaller venue. This party had hair braiding bar and makeup bar, so we all got our makeup touched up and received beauty boxes full of goodies. They also had happy meals. It was definitely a quirky party.
Saturday: popsugar, the dip, Las Vegas WHHSH party.
The Las Vegas party was very fun. They had really good music and I ended up getting my boyfriend some boxer briefs from Related. They also had these virtual reality boxes that you can use with your iPhone.
Met a new friend in the Walgreens photo booth. & I took a few photos of her for her blog.
The popsugar party was probably my favorite. If you follow me on snapchat you saw much more of the party. They had raw salmon and tuna, awesome gifting suites(dsw shoes!), really good djs, a great group of people.
Sunday: vestal village.
Grant and I met up with Niki, her boyfriend, and their friend at Vestal Village for a few hours. It was nice to relax by the pool and kind of recover from the crazy weekend. Diane’s beachwear was handing out goodie bags and I also ended up getting a swimsuit.
Overall, my coachella weekend was a success! Had a great time not attending the actual festival. Although one of these years I think I might attend just so Grant can go( he’s never been!).
