      Having lived in LA for over eight years, I’ve become immersed in the Coachella culture, yet I’ve never attended! This year I’m SO excited to get to go to the festival of all festivals, and I’ve been planning for MONTHS—where to stay, what to wear and of course, what to bring!

      I’ll be sharing more about my full looks during the weekends, but I wanted to tell OPI what I’m doing to prep and what I’m packing!

      • Body scrub and spray tan

      • OPI Gel Mani with Nail Art from Olive & June to keep my nails chip free and high style all weekend long (plus I’m SO excited to share a sneak peek of their newest soon-to-be-released shades from their Grease collection!)

      • Lash extensions to cut down on makeup time

      • Grab travel sizes of fave hair + beauty products like mini dry-shampoo, and these super-awesome refreshing and taming towelettes by EVA NYC!

      • Sunscreen + Sunnies: To protect skin and eyes against those intense sun rays of course! I love COOLA and these shades from RAEN in fun colors!

      • Fanny pack or cross-body bag: I love these simple throwback Eastpak’s Bum Bags or this Kanaas bag from to hold all the necessities.

      • OPI Nail and Cuticle Oil to Go to protect my cuticles from the dry desert air and keep my mani fresh!

      • Comfy shoes: yes, you want your style to be fresh, but you want your feet to last the whole festival!

      • Back-up battery to make sure your phone is always ready to record that performance, take that selfie and call that uber! I love this one from!
