The Babe Report: Desert Discoveries for WKND 2
(Welcome back to another killer guest post from none other than Babe in Residence, Miss Victoria Geil herself)
WE 3 BABES made it back alive to Los Angeles out of the desert. We survived a sandstorm, several marriage proposals, and midnight hikes out of the venue. We had a marvelous time, so marvelous that I’m finding myself tempted to reappear for Weekend 2 ;D
PRO TIPS must haves: tissue, hand sanitizer, SPF and a scarf (to sit on the ground with and also to cover your face for the dusty walk home). Leave your headdresses and light toys at home. Get your kicks painted at the Lacoste party. Dress comfortably. HYDRATE. Put away your phone to save battery – you can’t even refresh your instagram anyway.
If you suffer from FOMO anxiety, just know that there is at least 21 other epic things happening ALL AT THE SAME TIME and there’s nothing you can do about it except to enjoy yourself. Just know what scene you’re going for – fashion, business, celebrities, partying, pool hopping, or you know, for the music. But don’t fret, wherever you go the people watching is guaranteed to be fascinating, the new friends will be fun and you’ll have a ball!
Here’s what I enjoyed (musically) the most from weekend 1…
It takes a babe to blog us into festival season, sometimes. Actress, model and music video muse, Victoria Geil, has this weekend covered for ya. The anxious excitement of the drive out to this magical world on the barren edge of nothingness… the total and unapologetic poolside maxing as the sunshine and liquors flow… the punctuated moments of elation… the epic naps that tie it all together.
It’s all here, ladies and gentlemen: this is Coachella, as told by a babe. If you’re a babe, you’ll love this. If you love babes, you’ll need this.
This three mixtape series is conveniently tailored for use from the moment you begin your pilgrimage to the desert, to the moment you return to your respective basecamps upon the fateful completion of that final Sunday set. Get it into you.
