Day 3 involved another pre game pool party and riding my first ferris wheel ever. Had a Pink's hot dog and chill cheese fries before we met with everyone. Went crazy when The Weeknd played Crew Love. Caught a glimpse of Gotye then hopped over to Calvin Harris, one of my highlights of the trip. Stayed for 20 minutes into Avicii's set and watched these girls throw glitter everywhere and go wild, which btw looked very cool.  Headed over and squeezed our way up close to the Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg show. Absolutely the best part of the whole festival. I realized there is an inner gangster rapper in me for the fact that I knew every single song word for word. Blown away by each surprise performance-- to get such talented artists all on one stage. And just when I thought Kanye's performance last year would be tough to beat, Tupac was such a treat that it made it a million times better. Looking at these pictures already give me withdrawals but now with Maria's wedding, I'm so preoccupied and beyond exhausted from traveling and adjusting with the time difference that my schedule is way too hectic to pause and think of it. Luckily I had some down time to get these up before I lag again. My body still thinks it's at Coachella and wanted to reminisce while it's fresh. I'll return back here with pictures from the Philippines once I get back next week. Till then, toodles.

The second day was definitely more exciting and this time we came prepared for the cold weather. Tumbled around in the day on the grass and poolside before we headed out. Drank an excessive amount of Jameson and ginger ale. Hung out by the beer gardens till we caught Bon Iver and met up with the rest of the folks at Kaskade. The VIP bracelet is pretty useless in my opinion. That or I just didn't know how to utilize it best. But all in all after today, Coachella was beginning to feel like I remembered it from last year. #awesome

Day 1 was pretty much a mix of terror from a crazy thunderstorm the night before departure, followed by excitement for the sun, Jaegermeister and sugar free red bulls in Palm Springs. But that all didn't last too long since the weather began to suck balls and our outfits didn't even get to make an apperance. No idea where I'll ever have a place to re-wear a sheer white dress and feather headband without looking like a costumed greek goddess/flowerchild. It was so cold I didn't even get to see Swedish House Mafia! After warming up in the Sahara Tent watching Afrojack, we had it and left. Miles and miles of aimlessly walking again but regretting every minute of missing that performance. #iblametherain

FYI, this is a very delayed blog post. I'm not as consistent as I'd like to be on here but instagram and twitter are always better ways to follow me along . Anyway, I went to Twin Peaks and Marin Headlands with Alex and his dad one weekend in April. Got lucky to see the best views in SF with the weather so nice. Found this top at Zara that happened to match his favorite t-shirt. Together with our matching Tsovet's, I think we made a very cool bershon photo.
