COACHELLAWhat do you get when you put hundreds of thousands of people clad in a mixture of boho chic and hipster attire in a desert over a two-weekend span to party to all types of music?

You get one of the most popular festivals in the world—COACHELLA!

This year was my first time going to Coachella. Although, I’d heard about how amazing the experience is, I had no real expectations when I first arrived in the desert. The less expectations the better, right? Well… it was even more than I could have imagined!

Talk about #HairGoals

IGK SALON SLSIf you’re like me, you’ve been lusting over all those beachy, bedhead-looking haircuts that have been all over Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook these days. After endless tries to duplicate these hair goals I see all over the internet, I decided to treat my hair to a day of luxury at an Instagram-famous salon.

I’ve been following an Instagram account for the past year who is actually a girl I knew growing up. Little did I know that @thefashionisa wouldn’t just be a friend I had 100 mutual friends with, and someone I knew that decided to go to beauty school; but an actual hair goddess that I am forever grateful for (even if I just started going to her in November).

When I finally realized how much I needed to get my hair back to looking more natural and Pinterest perfect, I called Isa at IGK Salon at SLS and made my first appointment.

Adidas Game Day Fashion

Adidas UM FashionSo Adidas decided to hit Nike where it hurts — at least sentimentally. The University of Miami was the original Nike school. Back in 1987 they signed a deal with Nike to exclusively supply uniforms for all of its teams. That’s common practice now, but at the time it was unheard of. Apparently, however, Nike didn’t want to keep shelling out the big bucks and Adidas swooped in. It offered Miami a 12-year-deal (the longest deal Adidas has with any school), rumored to be worth as much as $90 million. And the University of Miami students could not be happier! We now have an endless amount of game day options! My personal favorite? This Miami Hurricanes Jersey Dress!

They invite you to be immersed in fine art and a good time. They hold  a unique vision of what Miami could become.

I had the honor of being invited to cover the event! Here’s a little recap:

Stay tuned, the next event date will be posted soon on the Young Artist Initiative Facebook page!
