I love kicking off festival season at Coachella. It's the ultimate combination of music, fashion and art. One thing I've learned is that you can never be truly prepared for what Coachella throws at you. From surprise dust storms, to 110 degree heat that makes bare legs feel like they're not bare enough, the desert hates to be consistent.  I'm not the best packer so I love things that make my spontaneous life easier. This year my Coachella essentials were my mini polaroid camera for some old school instant fun, and my Venus Snap portable compact razor for super smooth legs on the go. Both came in pretty handy for all those pool parties and after parties that are starting to rival the festival itself. The VenusSnap proved to be especially useful when my friend needed a little rescue at a pool party her legs weren't ready for. 
I wore this little number for my first night of Coachella. It was my favorite look of the weekend simply because it was perfectly comfortable and could be easily paired with a leather jacket for when the desert night turns chilly.

a NARS beauty minute

A couple of months ago I had the pleasure of teaming up with one of my favorite makeup brands, NARS, and another favorite, WhoWhatWear, to create this fun  video showcasing the versatility of the new NARS Matte Multiple. It can be used both as blush for your cheeks and as lipstick. It's the perfect addition to my growing collection of NARS must-haves.

Part of my Coachella responsibilites this year was to attend the Lacoste desert pool party during the weekend. I basically spent my time lounging in our cabana while sipping on cocktails, getting fake tattoos and nibbling on food truck yummies. I know, it's a tough life.

festival vibes

Fun Fact: I like to be barefoot when running around the festival grounds (inside festival grounds only). The grounds are on grassy polo fields and for some reason being barefoot just seems somehow appropriate. Or maybe I'm just weird.
