Phew, I survived Coachella again! 

Foray hosted a 16 bedroom estate filled with fashion bloggers, along with a 200+ person event on Friday, April 14th.  Margo and Me, Kaitlynn Carter, Thrifts and Threads, Michelle Take Aim, Hunt For Styles, Evelina, Xenia Overdose, and Becca Tilley are just some of the bloggers that stayed at the house.  It was great spending time with girls in the industry and getting to know them better!

Most house guests arrived on Thursday evening just before our "welcome dinner", catered by Chef V. Veronica was our chef for the weekend and she cooked the most delicious, healthy meals to keep us fueled at Coachella. 

L'Oreal Paris was Foray's headline sponsor for the weekend, so they set up a "glam lounge" for house guests to get their hair + makeup done all weekend long...major life savor! UK retailer, boohoo, set up a "revolving closet" at the estate, where girls could pick out outfits every day.

On Friday, Foray x Vampped hosted the second annual Desert Oasis party. The event was sponsored by L'Oreal Paris, boohoo, and Her Campus, which all had awesome activations throughout pool area. We had Emily Ratajkowski host the event and she was really sweet...and so hot, seriously!

After the chaos we made our way to the festival grounds on Friday. Some of my favorite sets that night were Empire of the Sun, Phantogram, and Travis Scott - so bummed I missed Sampha and Glass Animals! The festival seemed quieter on Friday compared to the past few years I have been...

On Saturday, Foray x Funboy hosted a fiesta brunch, complete with a mariachi band. The massive buffet and a good laugh from the band was a perfect hangover cure. We spent the rest of the day relaxing by the pool and recovering. Before the festival, we stopped by the Victoria's Secret Oasis to say hello to some friends and stock up on some goodies! Around 5pm, a group of us headed to the festival to catch the sunset. We spent most of our time at Rose Garden and The VIP bar where you literally ran into everyone! Majid Jordan, DJ Snake, Future, and Martin Garrix were some of my favs that night. We topped off the night at Neon Carnival and danced the night away.

Let's be real - Sunday I was dead. Two full days of nonstop socializing, dancing, and singing.  I was totally beat...but we had to do one last day! We made it out one final time to see Galantis, New Order, DJ Khaled, Lorde, and Kendrick Lamar.

I am so thankful for the team I work with at Foray. We are a small startup, so it's very rewarding to see growth and success after all of the blood, sweat, and tears go into planning such an extravagent weekend! Until next year, Coachella!
