Burning Man: Decompression Party

Hey Guy’s,

I hope you all are having a wonderful October!

I just wanted to make a quick post about my baby Burning Man experience that happened over the weekend. I’ve been on a festival roll, so the fact that I couldn’t make to Burning Man this year was a bummer. But, I’m so glad I was able to get a little taste of it at the Decompression Party, here in San Francisco. Overall, I absolutely LOVED it! Like, you guys don’t understand how much I love this shit. lol

I kind of lost count of how many different DJ/dance areas there were, but I counted 5. Might have been a couple more, any-who they all had their own theme and it was nothing but good vibes. House/Deep house music will always be one of my favorite types of music, so to get a variety of it was amazing. Check out some photos, outfit details and a mini video down below. And Burning Man, I’ll see you next year!! ❤

Besos!

My Coachella Diary 🌵☀️🌻🌴

Hey Guy’s,

So, if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you might have noticed I just went to weekend 2 of Coachella. This was my first time attending Coachella and I beyond enjoyed myself. I would definitely go again! My girlfriend Kenzie and I did so much the past weekend and it was absolutely a memorable trip. I swear, so many things weren’t going right the whole weekend..haha..but, that we didn’t let that get us down. Like missing our flight back or forgetting our tequila bottle at Wal-Mart and that’s only a couple things. But, I’m really glad my gf and I were always positive and looking at the bright side of things. I feel that’s important, especially when your traveling with a friend. She’s my travel buddy #4life!

Oh, I also wrote down some Coachella tips down below for any first timers that will attend next year’s event. ^_^


So, Kenzie and I left Thursday afternoon from San Francisco, CA. We rented a car and decided to do a little road trip on the way there. Initially, we wanted to stop by Sur in LA to eat/ drink because we are just a tad obsessed with Vanderpump Rules. Unfortunately, we didn’t because we were looking a hot mess and did not feel like getting that readyyy. So, until next time Sur! But, we ended stopping at a mall in Glendale because we both got spray tans and needed a foundation to match it and I needed to buy lashes. We came across the BEST beauty store called Riley Rose. They literally have all the brands that you see on Instagram that would usually be sold strictly online. I bought 2 pairs of the House of Lashes, the Winky Lux Flower Bomb in pink and grabbed a PopSocket for my phone. Figured it would help me not lose my phone at the festival. 😁

Since we didn’t eat at Sur, we ended Yelping a Mexican restaurant nearby. We ate at CaCao Mexicatessen. And let me tell you, I was not mad at all that we missed out on Sur because the food here was bomb af! The menu was described so well, that it made me order vegetarian food and I love my meat..haha. I love my girl Kenz for always being down to share food together..haha. So, I ordered the Potato Taco and Deep Fried Avocado Sope with a Michelada and she ordered the Salsa Verde Enchiladas with a Mango Margarita. Everything was MmmHmmm!

We made it to Palm Desert around 10pm and we stayed a the Desert Breezes Resort. It was nice, close to the festival and it had 3 pools (Um yasss!). I found our room through a closed Facebook group called “Coachella Music and Arts Festival California 2018”. Everyone on there was either going Weekend 1 or 2. It’s a great way to meet and talk to people who were attending as well. I was surprised to how many people were actually going by themselves, like, more power to you! As you know, getting a place to stay out there during Coachella weekend is expensive AF. Luckily, I found a group of people who got a huge suite and needed another person to take the other room. I got a good vibe, the price was good, so I booked it back in February and called it a day. We officially met our roomies for the weekend that night and they were all so cool and so much fun. We actually hung out a lot over the weekend and ended up making some new friends. ❤


Day 1

During the day we stopped by Wal-Mart to get some food, liquor, and some blankets. I was also looking to buy a jacket because it was really cold the night before and I only brought a sweater. I thought it was going to be hot the entire the time. Wrong!

We finally started getting ready. I did have an idea of what I wanted to wear each day, but my outfits were finalized until the day of. The first day I wanted to wear all black and came up with the below. Items are tagged below.

I finally got to see The Weeknd!! He is the artist I’ve been wanted to see for the longest time, but never got the chance to see. He was absolutely amazing and sounded so good performing live. I was enjoying his performance so much, I only got 1 snap in.

Day 3

On the third day, we were definitely moving a little slow. But, this day was Cardi B and she was performing at 5pm. Therefore, we had to get there earlier than the past couple days because we were not going to miss her! We said to ourselves we were going to be right in the front of the stage to see her. I love you Cardi, but it was just way too damn hot up in there. So, were watched her in the Beer Garden in the shade. By the time her performance was over, I was extremely happy to get my Shake Shack fix!

Coachella Tips

Do’s:

  • Do bring a bandana, cheap hat and cheap sunglasses (I ended up losing my hat and my sunglasses broke the 3rd day..lol)
  • Do wear comfortable shoes
  • Do wear fun and comfy clothes
  • Do go in on a locker with your friends. $55 for a Medium locker for the whole weekend. Bring a backpack and warmer clothes for the night to store in there. They will reimburse you $20 once you return your key on the 3rd day.
  • Do drink water and stay hydrated
  • Do wear deodorant (Not everyone got the memo there)
  • Do wear a fanny pack or belt bag (It’s efficient and convenient)
  • Do wear sunscreen
  • Do bring cash (You’ll have a better idea of how much you’re spending)
  • Do sneak in your own alcohol (Drinks are obviously pricey and most are premade bullshit. Also, you cannot walk around with your drink, only within the drinking 21+ areas)
  • Do buy a small plastic spray bottle to put water in. (It will feel amazing in the heat)
  • Do be prepared to walk a lot, like A LOT! (I think I lost 5 pounds that weekend)
  • Do have a “Meeting Spot” in case you or one of your friends get lost.
  • Do be safe and always watch your drink
  • Do have fun!

Don’ts:

  • Don’t wait the last min to find hotel and transportation accommodations. It will get very pricey closer to the date.
  • Don’t wear opened toed shoes. (You will get bumped into or stepped on)
  • Don’t push your limits. It’s a 3-day festival. Pace yourself.
  • Don’t be alarmed when you blow your nose the first night and black stuff comes out..haha (Hence wear your bandana)
  • Don’t get wasted too early, the heat won’t help your body during the day.
  • Don’t be afraid to roam around by yourself, you’ll be surprised who you meet.

Until next time babes!

xoxo
