I have survived another year of Coachella. This year was a bit more laid back than the previous year for me but definitely a blast! 
I also made a major hair colour change, if you didn't notice. Thanks to the fabulous team at Sassoon Salon in Beverly Hills for helping me create a new Spring colour from their latest collection, Umbra.
I never need an excuse to go to Palm Springs. It is definitely one of my favorite places on earth. While there, I feel like I am in some fabulous time capsule of modernism meets Fantasy Island. I am not one to shy away from the heat either, so anytime I can escape poolside, I will take advantage.
I had such an amazing time catching up with friends and relaxing at the Parker Palm Springs at the Pandora Jewelry Lounge where I was able to view their wonderful Spring/Summer collections. My group and I finished off the first night with the #HMLovesCoachella poolside event, while wearing all H&M of course.
Over the weekend, I donned various 'festival style' outfits from amazing brands such as SaboSkirt, H&M, Gypsy05, Lovers & Friends, Express and more!

Coachella Warrior Style

Music is something that has always inspired my creativity. I grew up in a household that was very dependent on musical talent. My father turned me on to rock at a very early age since he religiously followed The Who around as a child himself. I was surrounded by records and images he took while following their tours. My mother introduced me to musical icons such as Elton John and Rolling Stones. 
So being able to take part in Coachella as well as other epic concerts and festivals is something I take great joy in. For me, it is a musical and creative vacation. Not to mention, an amazing opportunity to rock some serious festival style! Throughout the weekend, I will be sharing my various outfits inspired by music. An expression of my wild and free spirit.
I partnered with my amazing makeup artist, Kseniya to create a festival warrior look. We used some of our favorite products including Wet n Wild water proof liquid eyeliner for the "warrior paint" and LimeCrime's 'cashmere' Velvetine lip colour. 
I also used the PRIV app (download it now!) to get the perfect in-home hair style for this twisted half up-do. The beauty professionals come right to your home and will do your nails, makeup, hair, etc! It's basically an Uber for beauty and affordable.
My dress is by Gypsy05 and shoes are from Carmen Steffens.
