Coachella Round 8!

This past weekend was my 8th time attending Coachella. I feel old. It’s pretty amazing how many people attend this festival. It’s just a phenomenal experience. You have to try it once! There’s hours and hours and hours of live music by amazing artists, palm trees, a ferris wheel, record store, craft making stations, a robot that rolls around, art installations, Spicy Pie. I swear by the Spicy Pie! It’s the best pizza. Also great is the fish taco stand and Pink’s Hot Dogs.

The atmosphere is unlike any other festival I’ve been to. It’s a little city for what is now two weekends out of the year, where people from all walks of life and all over the planet co-exist. I miss it so much already! Can’t wait for next years festival(s).

Favorites Shows of Weekend 2:

1) Radiohead
2) At The Drive-In
3) St. Vincent
4) Bon Iver
5) Explosions in the Sky
6) Justice

2) At the Drive-In
3) Radiohead

Coachella 2012 Weekend 1

Coachella is 2 days away! I am going the first weekend (though I wish I could do both…). Can’t wait to see some amazing artists in the desert sun. Radiohead, Bon Iver, The Black Keys, St. Vincent, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Pulp, GIRLS, Explosions in the Sky, Other Lives, Feist….the list goes on! My favorite pizza, Spicy Pie will be an everyday necessity.

I always refer to my Coachella Essentials list yearly.  One can never have enough moist towelettes, tissue, or sunscreen at the festival. Sadly it looks like it’s only going to be in the 70s/80s weather-wise this year! That’s like 30 degrees cooler than the usual 100+ degree weather. Not a fan…..

It was also just announced that Eminem, Warren G and Wiz Khalifa will be joining Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg on stage. So excited!

Coachella Inspiration

Coachella Inspiration
Completely obsessed with Polyvore.com now! So much easier to make a mood board here rather than on Photoshop. Love it!I was inspired to make a Coachella mood board after seeing that Planet Blue made an entire lookbook for Coachella. So, so excited! More about the music, obviously, than whatever outfit I plan on sweating/dancing/singing my ass off in…but polyvore is just fun!
