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.

Must. Have.

Most recent purchases I'm in love with

Got the cutest sunglasses turned eyeglasses the other day at Ilori. This place has the best selection when it comes to eyewear. A statement necklace from Urban to spice up any outfit since I've been spending ludicrous amounts on my health/wellness opposed to clothing/shoes. Still looking for an everyday necklace to wear like my old peace sign now gifted and hopefully in safe keeping. Lost my beloved honeycomb ring so I'd like to replace that as well. I love the smell of Baise, a Diptyque candle that I can bring around during my travels. Obsessed with this granola. I go through bags in just a week and goes perfect with my fage greek yogurt. Finally updated my cosmetic regimen. I'm old school and have been a MAC addict for years. I've tried to switch over to Makeup Forever but for some reason I did not like it. So many people have suggested it but I prefer the Studio Sculpt from MAC instead. I've been a die hard fan of Studio Fix Fluid but this gives me the same amount of coverage without such a heavy feeling. I swear it goes on like butter on my face. And I've changed my typical and messy lipglass/lustreglass to Creamsheen. This lip product gives enough color to achieve the perfect stain that adds some shine sans the stickiness. Next up is an iPhone 4s and maybe a new bag. I make lists of things I want and they magically always manifest.

These photos are long overdue. Went to San Diego two weekends ago for Maria's bachelorette party. SFO's terminal 2 has the best food options for an airport. Stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel in the Gas Lamp District. Rushed and had no time to shop for the trip so I borrowed Rachael's top and wore it as a dress for one of the theme nights. Jumped around to a bunch of clubs and realized I haven't danced my butt off like that in forever. San Diego has a huge nightlife/party scene. Stingaree and Fluxx were probably my favorite ones. I'll admit I feel a tad old being out but since we were celebrating and for all those who ask about nightlife questions.. there you go. Had a massage and super fun spa day with the ladies. Took a Zumba class. Ate at La Puerta for some tasty Mexican food. I was on a roll with my health conscious/no alcohol diet but was sold on the sangria, chicken tacos, guacamole and chips and salsa. Oh, and the bike rides to get to/from each club were a fun highlight for some strange reason. Maybe bc it was a weird switch up from being used to taking a taxi. All in all it was an exhausting 2 days but very fun experience!
