Hot Hot Heat: Coachella 2012

coachella

If you follow me on Twitter, then you know that I won a ticket to Coachella for weekend two. I had three short days to plan a whirlwind adventure to the desert, and even now, I still can't believe how it all worked out! Many of my friends went during weekend one and reported rain, cold weather, and wind. I checked the forecast before packing, but nothing could have prepared me for the hottest Coachella weekend in history. 106 degrees. Yes, you read that right. 106 degree weather in the DESERT. It was so hot, that halfway through day two, my shorts and pants didn't fit anymore! No joke. I also think I spent $80 on just water, haha. All in all, Coachella was a great experience. I met some wonderful people and discovered some amazing music. My favorite sets from the weekend were The Black Keys on day one, Miike Snow on day two, and Lissie on day three. I also discovered First Aid Kit and you must check out their music if you haven't heard of them. Anyways, here are some fun photos from my time in the desert. Stay tuned for more posts with Coachella style snaps :)

A very special thank you to Dylana of Color Me Nana and H&M for providing me with my VIP ticket to Coachella 2012!

Aw, so glad you had a great time. I'm excited about this, I need to check out these bands since I'm always on the look out for new music, but don't really know where to find it!
