Coachella Weekend 2 Recap


I did it y’all! I traveled from deep in the heart of Texas all the way to the desert! Yup, that’s right, I went to COACHELLA! And it was everythinggg (and then some)! If you followed along on snapchat (@chicintheHOT) then you know just how much fun I had. But ICYMI don’t worry, I won’t make you suffer through the FOMO. I’m recapping a few of my favorite moments right here, right now.



The on-site luxury Safari tent we stayed in definitely lived up to the hype (and the sky high price tag). At $7,000 a piece, these beautifully designed tents included 2 queen sized beds, wood floors, A/C units, a mini fridge, 24/7 concierge service, complimentary breakfast, dinner and snacks, a beautiful lounge area with a full bar and DJ, golf cart rides to and from all stages, access to the VIP area and even more exclusive Artist Lounge (that is crawling with artists and celebs), complimentary hair salon visits, massages, and facials. All of these amenities made life in the hot desert environment for the long weekend so much easier. I can honestly say that it was worth every penny.image

Loved this look!

There were several “Houses” at Coachella. This one was the Pandora House, Sponsored by Pandora Jewelry. It was one of the few air conditioned places in the festival. It was a nice place to escape the crowds and heat. It was beautifully decorated and had photobooths and free wifi. There were also vendors selling Pandora Jewelry.image

There were hundreds of food vendors selling everything from gourmet hotdogs, to ice cream, to sushi. These garlic crab fries were by far my favorite! Delicious!image

It’s definitely safe to say I had the best time at Coachella. There’s really nothing else like it. From the fashion to the gorgeous scenery, pool parties, and amazing artists. It really is a culture all of its own that brings out every element of a good time. #festivalvibes


Until next time, Coachella!
