Coachella – Weekend 1

Hey guys, happy Tuesday!  I spent most of yesterday in full recovery mode from the weekend (can’t wait to share more with you later this week).  The last 10 days has been so crazy and I am finally able to share my #PartyCHELLA weekend with you!

Thursday night kicked off the 10 days with a party at The Hard Rock Palm Springs called “Culture Collide“.  I was invited last year but it just didn’t work into my schedule which made me even more excited to attend.  The party was sponsored by Tilly’s, a brand that I loved when I was younger, and had a pop up shop from Others Follow.  I picked out the cutest black midi length dress that I am sure I will be living in all Summer.  Brooke and Zoe both took advantage of the Henna art and we sipped on Moscow Mules all night.

Saturday was the aggressive party day…I had a total of 6 I was invited to but only made it to three (I’m so sorry if I didn’t make it to your event this year…I will try to switch things up for 2017).  We started the day at Ingleside Inn (where I used to manage the social media marketing) for BMF’s annual Music Lounge event that was sponsored by Las Vegas this year.  The #WHHSH (What Happens Here Stays Here) theme was so fun and there were so many cool activations to see.  The guys scored some amazing underwear and socks from Related Garments, there was a braid bar, Flower Children Only had a DIY flower crown area, and V Moda was there with the coolest headphones…I’m obsessed.

Our next stop was right next door at The Avalon for Popsugar’s annual Cabana Club event.  This is honestly my favorite event of the last 2 years thanks to their amazingly thought out design, delish food (last year they did a taco bar and this year it was made to order Ahi or Salmon poke….I’m still drooling over it!), and unique cocktails, this year they even had coconut cups!  There were a few different activations including a DSW DIY gladiator sandal area where I met My Style Vita, a blogger I have been following since starting my blog.  Jessica just as sweet as I expected and I can’t wait for her to come back for Coachella next year.

Our final stop was The dFM House at a private estate in the Little Tuscany neighborhood of Palm Springs.  The views and grounds at the estate never get old.

Our final day of #PartyCHELLA took us all the way to Lake Cahuilla (about 45 minutes from Palm Springs) to Vestal Village.  No joke guys, I have wanted to attend this party for the last 3 years and FINALLY got in!  It was a really unique Coachella party with a pool party at the lake (yup, actual lake).  There were tents around the pool with pop ups from Diane’s, Rebel Coast Wine, Vestal watches, and so much more.  They also offered a camping experience with hiking, fishing, and BYOH (Bring Your Own Horse)  that we didn’t get to explore.

All in all, weekend 1 of Coachella is such a fun time to live in Palm Springs.  I feel so fortunate to be able to attend so many unique events this time of year and love getting to share them with all of you.

Thanks so much for reading!

XO, Niki
