Festival Days Are The Best Days
I just got back from the hottest party of the year put on by Revolve, it probably sounds familier because most of us – glamorous women spend our days drooling over their show stopping fashion pieces. This was a last minute trip and I honestly scrambling to get flights and accommodation. Little did I know but Coachella is the same weekend and brings in hundreds wait, thousands of beautiful people to Palm Springs. I probably spent 8hrs looking for somewhere to stay, get a car and the eventually used Expedia as my one stop shop! Woo Hoo
It has been on my bucket list to attend Coachella but thats going to happen another year for sure. I love music, fashion and this was the trip of the year so far. I met so many influencers, bloggers, fashion icons and industry elites. The energy was dynamic and I felt like I was on pre workout the entire day (Im laughing now). I spoke to a few people that have attended festivals in the Vally for the last five years and they were pros.
Where to stay?
La Quinta Resort https://www.laquintaresort.com/rooms/
JW Marriot Palm Springs https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/ctdca-jw-marriott-desert-springs-resort-and-spa/
(Be sure to book 2 months in advance at least. (There were a lot of third party sites scamming people)
Timing is Everything?
-Make sure you get to wrist band pick up and shuttle pickup 1 hr in advance.
-carry a water bottle and sunblock to wait in line (it was 32Dg Hot Hot and Hot).
-The drive to the location is 30 min long.
-Everything gets busier as the day goes on.
What I packed in my backpack? Blinged out fancy backpack off course
-spare dress (easy slip on and a scarf) Gets cooler as the night goes on
-bandaids (blisters happen in the heat) Shoe selection is vital
-I carried basic touch up makeup (Powder and lip tint)
-Bandana (Just like a 😎)
Things to do around Palm Springs?
-The wind turbines are so cool!
-Pool days at your hotel or elsewhere
-Hot springs and different natural plunge pools (Miracle Hot Springs in Joshua Tree)
-The cheese cake factory is AMAZING
Whenever we were on the road, Starbucks came in handy.
Shopping in Palm Springs?
I always end up at Kohls and Target somehow!
Homegoods is great
I mostly shopped the https://www.revolve.com REVOLVE STORE
This weekend I was totally inspired by the people around me. So much beauty and mostly things to be grateful for. Some of my celebrity and almost celebrity crushes that I was standing next too Kendall Jenner, Justinc, Jasmin Saunders, Camila Coelho, Janice Joostemaa, Cardi B,
WE had such a great time and look forward to going back to the Coachella Valley. The girls and I drove back from Palm Springs to LA (Lotsa Traffic) for a quick adventure to Venice Beach. Definitely worth a visit and LA is just amazing in general. The vibe and atmosphere is addictive. Took 5 or maybe 50 pics of the sunset and flew back to Canada.
