I was pleasantly surprised Friday morning to find the pool at the Ace Palm Springs completely empty. Clearly driving out to the desert on Thursday night was the right move. We went down the road to the Riviera hotel where Milk Studios was having a day party. There was a pop-up shop for NMRKT, good music, and a VW bug being hand-painted. We got to the festival after sundown to see M83 and Swedish House Mafia, and both were amazing! After that, we went back to the Riviera Hotel for a pop-up Electric Room party. It was good fun, but I had to cut out early to get some sleep.
We went back to the Milk Studios day party to say hi to some friends; it seemed more lively today with the Been Trill boys playing a set and Ke$ha floating around in the pool. (She opted out of a photo with Mike & Ike’s candies because she "didn’t want to look like a fat kid!") I was getting a lot of love that day for my Wildfox booty shorts, Handsome one-piece, and DANNIJO jewelry. That night at the festival, I ran into the creator herself Miss Dani with her bestie the Man Repeller, while Radiohead blasted in the background. We went to a Bromance party in a barn late that night and danced our asses off while Snoop was puff-puff passing…
We had to get out of Indio 'cause it was just so hot! So, we ditched our last day and headed back to L.A.! Sad to have missed Snoop and Girl Talk — I’m sure they were amazing.
