Coachella: The Arrival
After a quick LAX pickup our fre$h white Ford Escape and an IN-N-OUT excursion that was fitting of the name, we (along with pals Paulina and Celby) hit the road – windows down, snacks handy and Kanye‘s new jam “Mercy” blaring through the speakers.
With pre-Coachella adrenaline rushing through our veins, us four newcomers to this desert festival (and California) knew not what to expect, but had high expectations. Would we spot any celebs? Would our outfits get photographed? Would any members of N.W.A. hit the stage with Snoop and Dre?
All of our queries would be answered and more, but in several stages.
We stayed at The Riviera Palm Springs (party post to follow). We marveled at the hotel’s kitsch-y retro interior, complete with colorful fabrics and mirrors.
Of course, getting to the hotel was just the beginning of our vacation — we had a long weekend absolutely packed with parties, festival frolicking, blogging duties, and some pool time.
Stay tuned — our Coachella 2012 blog post series is just barely gaining momentum. Style shots, music reviews, and party stories to come!
