Season 2 at Coachella with Ray-ban! 

Day 1:

We checked into our Ray-Ban Oasis located in the heart of Palm Springs and prepped for the festival with a session of Pilates. Once the work out was done, we all hung out by the pool (filled with every single floatie you can think of). After that I visited the American Express house for a preview of their #AmexPlatinum house over at the Parker Hotel. Before heading over to the Festival we made another stop over at The Paper Magazine party to catch up with friends and pre-game (duh).

Favorite acts: The XX, Dj Shadow, BANKS and Empire of The Sun

Day 2: 

The aftermath of day one took a toll on most of us, therefore we decided to stick around the house, enjoy the sun and take advantage of pool time since I don’t really have that here in New York City (It is pouring outside as I write this blog post.)

After catching the iconic Lady Gaga perform her hits (and I forget how many she actually has) the squad and I headed over to Neon Carnival, which to some people is better than the actual music festival (hint: I’m one of those people). Think if Six Flags had an outdoor dance club located in the center of the theme park, minus the super scary rides– That’s Neon Carnival.

Favorite acts: Lady Gaga, Martin Garrix and DJ Snake

Day 3:

Day 3 we all had a late start, but can you blame us? We started the day with massages (I mean, can we start everyday with a massage?) and then hung out by the pool for some R&R time before heading over to the festival for the last day.

Favorite acts: Kendrick Lamar, DJ Khaled, Galantis, Tove Lo and Lorde

During the weekend, I was fully equipped and stocked with my new favorite pair of shades by Ray-Ban. The General were created in 1987 as a tribute to Lieutenant Douglas Macarthur, today’s design has been reinterpreted with a range of colors and gloss finishes to choose from. Think of them as the classic and iconic aviators, which inspired these, for guys with faces that are longer and more rounder. (If aviators don’t look good on you, The Generals will). They come in 8 color gradients and are available online, right here.
