It’s April, it’s hot, it’s Festival season!
Now of course one of the biggest, if not THE festival, is the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
Whether you’re attracted by the plethora of musical acts, the celebrity sight seeing, or the fashion , it’s a place for all. One of my favorite things that is just as much Coachella as the actual fest is the parties associated with it. There are tons and tons of parties that happen before and or during both weekends. Some of these are crazy exclusive and seemingly impossible to attend and mostly all of them have a guest list. There are, however, some really rad parties that only require an RSVP for those of us who don’t have that little blue checkmark next to our names.
I had the privilege of attending the Desert Jam party presented by Lucky Brand.

The party took place in Palm Springs, CA. at the Arrive Hotel on Saturday April 14th, 2018. It was so much fun! The vibe was very laid back but you could definitely feel everyone’s excitement for the festival. There were special performances by CHARLI XCX, Harry Hudson and Naomi Wild to name a few. There was a ton of yummy finger food (including vegan options), fruity refreshments and bikini clad desert dwellers ready to party. I’ve always been a fan of Lucky Brand apparel so I was especially excited for this party.
As with every pool party there is more than just drinks,music, and a pool. There were a couple of cool stands that really caught my attention. One of them was the Scünci booth. For those that aren’t familiar, Scünci is a hair accessories brand that offers a variety of hair products including hair ties, wraps, etc. At their booth they were customizing scrunchies for free! It was a totally cute idea and of course with all the 90’s nostalgia trends buzzing I had to get in on the action. You were able to choose from different iron on patches for your scrunchie and the other option was to bedazzle it. I love hair ties and I’m extremely indecisive so I went for both. I picked two dark grey velvet mid-sized scrunchies and picked a couple jewels that I felt were a good match. For my second choice I picked a larger all black scrunchie and I managed to sift through and find the perfect little cactus patch for it.
Why a cactus you ask?
- I’m from the desert.
SO MANY SCRUNCHIES, SO LITTLE TIME!
Another highlight of the party for me was the ping pong corner. Nothing brings out my animal-like competitive spirit like some sun, whiskey and balls! It was to the right of the stage so you were still able to jam out and get your balls bouncing (literally). The coolest thing about it was that instead of a traditional net they added their own little twist; a metal plank that served as a divider but get this, the words
“PING MY PONG”
were carved out! Adorable right?! The words “Lucky You” were also written on the table. Lucky Brand sure knows how to break the ice at a party.
On our way out we were given goody bags which had some pretty awesome stuff in it. A cool pair of baby blue shades courtesy of Omission Brewing Co., a Quest protein cookie which I immediatley grubbed down in the car cause gains and an amazing FHI Heat hairbrush. Honestly, I was just happy to add another canvas tote bag to my collection since I’m such a total hoarder. Overall, it was an awesome shindig and I’ve got the ugly tan lines to prove it.
