5 Fantastic Floral Crowns Spotted at Coachella

We fell hard for Natalie Alcala last fall, when the LA-based writer and blogger spent a week guest blogging for us. In fact, we loved her posts so much that we asked her to be a contributing editor. In addition to blogging for us once a week, she’ll also be writing for the Birchbox Magazine and keeping us up to speed on all things fashion, beauty, and fun.

As a fashion editor, one has to make a critical choice when planning for an action-packed event like Coachella: do you report on style at the actual festival or just the surrounding parties? Due to my procrastination to buy a ticket, I chose the latter and trekked out to the desert to cover all the super-cool, sometimes super-exclusive bashes.

In all my years of Coachella-ing (10 years exactly, yikes) one trend that never ceases to appear is the floral crown. This festival style requisite has been around since the hippie Woodstock days, so I’m not surprised that it has remained a staple on the heads of boho-channeling partygoers. Plus, they’re really pretty. With that said, here are a few fun wreaths that caught my eye this time around.

Coachella Packing List: 5 Beauty Essentials to Beat the Heat

We fell hard for Natalie Alcala two years ago, when the LA-based writer and blogger spent a week guest blogging for us. In fact, we loved her posts so much that we asked her to be a contributing editor. In addition to blogging for us once a week, she’ll also be writing for the Birchbox Magazine and keeping us up to speed on all things fashion, beauty, and fun.

Happy first day of Coachella! Here’s a roundup of tried and true beauty products that I’ve packed for 72 hours in the desert.

1. NCLA Nail Wraps in Stephanie’s Galaxy ($16): I’m utterly obsessed with this LA-based nail art company. Not only do these intergalactic wraps satisfy my ongoing passion for all things galaxy-inspired, but they also guarantee chip-free tips for the entire trip.

2. Jouer Matte Moisture Tint ($38): I can’t sing the praises of this tinted moisturizer enough. Not only does it keep my combination oily skin from looking embarrassingly glowy, it also provides ample, SPF-powered coverage throughout the day. (To be extra safe, though, don’t forget to touch up with another SPF during the day!)

Katy Perry Does Her Best Violet Beauregarde Impression

Katy Perry always keeps us guessing when it comes to her hair—whether she’s channeling Smurfette with full on blue or keeping it “simple” with pink roots. This weekend at Coachella she debuted a brand new shade: dark violet. We’re digging the color, especially with the cute flower wreath in her hair. Although she’s doesn’t actually look like Violet Beauregarde, the snotty little girl from Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory, her penchant for candy colored hair and outfits do make us think she’d be a fan of the movie.

What do you think of the new color?

So many frequent dye jobs necessitate some pretty hefty conditioner. Find out favorites in the Birchbox Shop. 

6 Ridiculously Cute Fruit Looks for Coachella and Beyond

We fell hard for Natalie Alcala last fall, when the LA-based writer and blogger spent a week guest blogging for us. In fact, we loved her posts so much that we asked her to be a contributing editor. In addition to blogging for us once a week, she’ll also be writing for the Birchbox Magazine and keeping us up to speed on all things fashion, beauty, and fun.

I love a good fruit print. In addition to offering a charming sartorial statement, there’s something about wearing fruit that instantly lifts your mood. Maybe because eating fruit is fun and it’s an honest to goodness treat. With that said, this Coachella weekend, I’m swapping predictable neon, animal print, and floral numbers for a bounty of produce-inspired pieces that are sure to harvest plenty of smiles.

Packing List: Lorelei Heads to Coachella

Lorelei is off to Coachella for three days of music, hipsters, and more hipsters. We sent her off with a newly installed hair feather and strict instructions to take as many pictures of ‘What were you thinking?’ outfits as possible. Here’s what she’ll be toting to the desert.

Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint: This tinted moisturizer is a hero product for me. It has SPF (the more the better at Coachella!) and evens out my skin with a glowy finish.

Zoya Nail Polish: I wouldn’t really feel ready without my nails done. I’ll be rocking a moon mani for the weekend.  

NARS Funny Face: Bright lips are the standout trend right now, plus this has the added bonus of making me look slightly more polished in the extreme heat. 

Rebecca Minkoff BF: You can’t go wrong with Rebecca Minkoff’s ladylike shapes and cool-girl details. This little cutie is big enough for all the essentials and small enough that it won’t get in the way of spontaneous dancing.  

La Roche-Posay Sunscreen for face and body and a water bottle: Absolutely, without doubt, the most important things in my suitcase. Without them, I’d burn to a crisp and shrivel up like a raisin.  

Urban Outfitters Dress: Lightweight dresses are key and the cute colorblocking and hemline on this is perfect. 

Even if you aren’t Coachella-bound, you still get an indie cool hair feather. Pick one up in our shop.
