Jungle Feva’

_W7C5266 Los Angeles, California

TGIF my little chickens! I hope your week has been kind to you, and that the weekend has even sweeter things in store! As you may have noticed from my Instagram feed, the husband and I have just returned from Disney World where we celebrated our second wedding anniversary and had a magical time. No, it doesn’t get old. We are now on the last leg of our little vaca in Miami and have been consumed by our computer screens, so imma keep this one short so mama can hit up the beach and do vacationy things. Who am I kidding, spending the entire remnants of our trip on YouTube watching Jenna Marbles videos sounds like FACKING HEAVEN. Back to bidness, this little #OOTD was shot in LA in the jungle looking gardens of the Chateau Marmont, as we were heading out to Giorgio Baldi for dinner. We thoroughly took advantage of every opportunity we had to stuff our faces while visiting Lalaland before Coachella, and I think it’s about time we trigger your travel cravings and share our favourite food spots, with you don’t you think?…Who knows, maybe in a week’s time we will present you with a new #CCeats food guide for LA. This is all speculation of course, but you know…who knows? _W7C5308 _W7C5260 _W7C5303 _W7C5274 _W7C5271 _W7C5298 _W7C5315 _W7C5284 _W7C5294 _W7C5324 Flower stripe child

Desert Dusking

Hey fwiends! Sorry I’ve been a little MIA lately, but all this long awaited free time has made me pick up old hobbies I love, and they’ve been keeping me happily busy! Don’t worry it’s not squash. I’m here today to tell you all about the final day of Coachella, which might just have been the best one yet. We went to the grounds early before anyone really shows up, not to enjoy the scenery, but to eat. After I got that taken care of, we walked around, had some morning margaritas, ate a little more and headed back to our place  for an outfit change, followed by this middle of butt fuck nowhere #OOTD shoot. I mean when you’re in the desert, you have to venture out into the unknown you know? Also it makes for a pretty beautiful badass background (alliteration watsup!). We then returned to the festival for a pretty great evening line up.

We felt connected to the universe and cried a little while singing along to “Home” at Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, and did what can only be described as african tribe inspired dance moves with Alexander Wang and his model army during Major Lazer. The sleeper hit of the weekend had to be Sia. That set was the most creative use of stage time I’ve seen at Coachella and maybe anywhere really. Because she’s always hiding her pretty face, actors, artists, and dancers interpreted every song from her repertoire (including Breathe Me, I cried a little for that too) in the most beautifully WTF kinda ways. Maddie Ziegler did some pirouettes, Kristen Wiig emoted, and Shia Labeouf didn’t show up. Typical. Calvin Harris then came out and put on a better show than I could have ever anticipated. Big Sean said hi, and then Rihanna came out and gave the the rendition of We Found Love I had always dreamed of witnessing. Honestly it was another solid night added to an unbelievably solid weekend! Coachella always has the greatest energy and you leave there feeling warm with hope and appreciation for the world we live in. Well, that and super fucking tired. Drinking and dancing for 3 days straight will do that to you. _W7C5828 _W7C5845 _W7C5873 _W7C5927 _W7C5861 _W7C5983 _W7C5881 _W7C5885 _W7C5968 _W7C5838 _W7C5869 _W7C6017 L1030092 L1030117 L1030105 L1030120 L1030102 L1030123 L1030119 L1030114 L1030113 L1030126 L1030125 L1030128 L1030129 L1030157 L1030161 _W7C5979 Fack boho I’m giving alien vibes

I know what you are thinking…yes, that’s some very strategic boob placement I have going on there, but hey, if Halle Berry managed to keep her large mammary glands in check while winning an Oscar, I think I can handle these little guys. Have I made you uncomfortable with all the tit talk? I’m sorry, but the systematic desexualization of women is the only way we bitches are ever getting some equality up in here…so really, #sorrynotsorry alright. Now that I’ve made you uncomfortable and pushed some social commentary down your throats, time to talk about Coachella day 2!

It was pretty great. We started the day eating breakfast burritos with that kid from Modern Family, then headed to a mansion in the desert. As you can tell the view wasn’t too shabby, and we were in great company, oh hay gal pal Rocky Barnes! After a fantastic day pool/cliff side party, we took a microwave disguised as a party bus to the festival. Yes kids, that was a lame “it was real  hot” joke. Once we arrived we ate at our favourite handroll bar in the Rose Garden, and after I died and went to heaven, we watched some live music.

After James Bay stole my heart we headed to the main stage for more food and Ice Cube. Though every performance felt like a magical moment, one of the highlights from the weekend was seeing Sam Smith walk out during the Disclosure set. It also made me realize I don’t know the words to Disclosure songs, but am very good at mumbling lyrics and dancing really hard. We finished the night with a 3 hour set from one of the most iconic rock n’ roll bands of all time. So ya, Guns N’ Roses was pretty cool, in that like, unforgettable memory I will cherish forever kinda way… _W7C5665 _W7C5681 _W7C5706 _W7C5790 _W7C5716 _W7C5662 _W7C5698 _W7C5686 _W7C5708 _W7C5788 IMG_0948 IMG_1090 IMG_0983 IMG_0996 IMG_1091 IMG_1013 IMG_1890 IMG_1095 IMG_1099 IMG_1092 IMG_1082 _W7C5727 It’s a crown not a native headpiece k?
