Desert Nights

The three nights at the festival were soo unbelievably exciting, just due to the craziness of the DJs performing. I saw Flume, Skrillex, Calvin Harris, Disclosure, Dillion Francis, and Zedd while I was there. Everyone had so much energy and went absolutely insane when the acts came on. It was so fun to be in the midst of a crowd all dancing and having the time of their lives!

Coachella Valley Arts & Music Festival

This pas weekend had to be one of the most memorable weekends of my life. Friday morning at 6 am my mom, sister, friends and I all set out on a road trip to the desert. Our destination was to the Coachella music festival in Indio, held yearly in April. I had been looking forward to this weekend since I got my tickets on the pre-sale months ago. And I was most definitely not disappointed.

That Weekend Feeling

I rolled out of bed this morning with a feeling of dread, knowing I had overslept and would have to rush through my morning routine. However, as soon as I remembered what day it was that awful feeling immediately vanished, and was replaced with one of relief and excitement. Although this school week was only four days, it totally dragged on for me. That’s why I am soo relieved it’s finally friday, and am going to discuss the weekend feeling in this blog post. We all know it, the amazing feeling when you walk out of school on a friday afternoon. Discussing with friends our plans for the next two days and nights of freedom, whether those including getting in hours and hours of sleep or an exciting party.

Here’s a song for you to listen that really just puts me in a great mood and pumped for the weekend.

Hopefully these pictures inspire you to go out and have a killer weekend spending time with your friends or just kicking back to enjoy those awesome quiet hours, 100 percent stress free.

The weather here in SB this weekend is predicted to be fairly warm and sunny, so a good opportunity to get outdoors to the beach. Go on a picnic with your friends to a pretty park. Hike somewhere you’ve never been before. Spend a fun night in with the girls (or boys) watching movies and cracking jokes. Whatever it is you do, make the most of your weekend.

Feel free to leave a comment with what you’re planning to do for your weekend!

Santa Barbara Bowl: Music, Good Vibes, and a View

We are lucky enough to have a gorgeous concert venue here in SB. The Santa Barbara bowl hosts a large variety of artists where locals of all ages can enjoy the music and nice atmosphere the bowl provides. This venue is outdoors and located on SB’s riviera, so that concert goers also have a perfect view of the ocean during the concert season, from around April to October.

IMG_3603My first time visiting the bowl was during September this year to watch the Lumineers perform. Although my seat for this concert was at the very top of the bowl, I was able to enjoy it all the same. The seats were perfect for this mellow concert, where I could just sing along to some of my favorite songs and enjoy the presence of my little sister and my mom, who accompanied me to this concert.

The second concert I’ve seen at the bowl was Passion Pit, which was SUCH a fun concert. The combination of being with a great group of girls, being in the pit and the great music made for a perfect night. Having a general admission ticket is by far the best place to be when it comes to an up beat, dancey concert like Passion Pit. The performance was amazing.

The seating chart for the bowl pictured to the left. Although the seats in the back seem soo far away from the front, the bowl is actually pretty small. No matter where you’re seated for a concert you can still feel close to the performer.
