COACHELLLLLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA BABY

I went to Coachella.

I know exciting, right? it was pretty exciting. An amazing experience to say the least.

In case you don't know, Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is in the desert (Indio, California), it takes place from Thursday-Sunday although concerts don't start until Friday you can show up on Thursday and set up your tent. Oh and mostly you camp in a tent near your car. Some people (ahem, celebrities) get hotels or luxury houses to stay in but us normal folk stay in tents on the grounds.

Super Highlights:

  • I met and hugged Kate Nash (full body, everyone else was hugged over the divider put up to keep fans from climbing on stage but she came around to hug me because I was last and didn't get to take a picture)
  • Pharrell was amaaaaazing, he had so many guests including: Gwen Stefani (!!!!!), Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Nelly, Diplo, Tyler the Creator... I think that's everyone, haha it was insane, he put on one of the best shows ah so good. Plus I just like his music anyways.
  • I got to see the 1975 and i was soooooo close literally like they were right there damn so good and Matt was shirtless and he was the most amazing performer, they put on an amazing show
  • I've discovered my true calling in life is DJ'ing just kidding (I'm totally not kidding wouldn't that be the most rad, fun job ever?)
Things I won't miss: 
  • Porta Potties as the only bathrooms. Pretty self explanatory.
  • Never having a full battery on my phone
  • The heat.
  • Then the wind.
  • Then the heat again.
  • On Friday the heat was so bad we only could watch 2 songs from Haim even though I love them because i felt the sun draining my life
  • Dirt. Everywhere. Your eyes, your toes, your elbow creases, your armpits, your hair. Everywhere. Mixing with your sweat so you're just a sweat mud monster. I don't care how cute those girls look in their maxi dress ootds, they are gonna be dusty as heck by the end of the day. 
  • Beyonce was there and i didn't see her (insert sobs)

Friday: Mako, Davide Squillace, Aloe Blacc, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, HAIM, Bastille, Kate Nash, Ellie Goulding

Saturday: White Lies, Temples, Bombay Bicycle Club, Carbon Airways, GTA, Julian Casablancas, Cajmere,Warpaint, City and Colour, Kid Cudi, MGMT, Lorde, Solange, Fatboy Slim, Foster the People, Pharrell Williams, Muse

//Uni VoxBox//

In the photos above I am wearing only the Expert Last Lipstick and Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation on my face and the photos are completely unfiltered or doctored. 

The first voxbox I received only included one item, however this one was like a kit and included many items of different varieties, here are the products I received:
  • NYC New York Color Expert Last Lipstick - (Forever Fuchsia) It smells like bubblegum and it looks like bubblegum so yeah pretty great, easy to apply and has a soft texture. Also fuchsia is an insane word.
  • Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation - (200 Soft Beige) I usually use BB cream and this was certainly thicker than I was expecting. It is a pretty good match, however since they sent it to me vs me picking it out in the store it is perhaps a little bit lighter than my skin tone. But it does look really good in the photos who is that even skin-toned princess??
  • Broadway Nails imPRESS Manicures - (First Date) These are so neat, they remind me of the press on nails that I used when I was younger to pretend i was a fancy lady. But these are a grown up version in a trendy mauve purple.
  • Pilot Acroball Pure White - If you should know one thing about me, it's that i love pizza. But if you should know a second thing about me it's that i love pens, I love to always have a pen on my person especially because I draw all the time. I have a pretty good pen collection I love pens of all colors and types so I will never refuse the chance to test one for free. This pen is great, it has the squishy thing that I will never turn down. It's the perfect pen to take notes with, it's cute and useful.
  • Red Rose Real Tea Premium Water Enhancers - (Blackcurrant Raspberry) It's gluten free and doesn't need to be refrigerated, so you can take it with you. It is also only 5 calories and makes 24 servings.Its made from real black tea and contains no dyes or coloring and can be used to make both hot and iced tea. It's simple and a delicious, low calorie alternative to soda that can be made on the go.
  • Playtex Sport Fresh Balance - These tampons are designed to fit your body and use Flexfit and odor shield technology to help you out when life isn't great. And they smell pleasant enough to lift your mood at least for a little while. 

*I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.*
