Ahhhh Coachella. A beautiful escape to an oasis of magical parties and non stop music. It ended up being me, the bf, my good friend Allison and Russ, a small but super fun group. I brought our film camera up with us and took it everywhere.

We spent Friday driving up and going shopping for my store as previously stated. After we did some shopping and checked into our hotel, Shilo Inn (literally went back in time to the 70s), we went out for some dinner and drinks at Birba. Ridiculously good pizza and even better drinks. About 4 drinks in we went to our friends house and mingled until about 3am then called it quits as we had a big day ahead of us.

Now on to the REAL Coachella day 1. Saturday. We woke up, tried to be alive because we had a little too much to drink the night before and headed out to breakfast at Cheekys. Cheeky’s is right next to Birba but serves breakfast and lunch. After our fabulous meal of breakfast quesadilla’s and duck confit cakes we headed to Rhonda at The Saguaro. The Saguaro Hotel was a beautiful, bright hotel with a modern feel. Rhonda was as expected: packed, great music, and great people watching. Russ (who mc’s the party) got us our VIP wristbands and we headed off to a land of open bar and free denim from Siwy. I wore my Bijork buns as planned paired with neon high waisted Bongo shorts and my Target bikini top…..I’ve never felt better.
