Friday morning, I woke up extremely excited to get this fun-filled weekend started. I was in for a major surprise though. My brand new car, an S60 Volvo Polestar, had finally arrived! Just in time for my desert hopping.

The first day I co-hosted the Galore party with Kate Nash at the Steve Madden House.

Later that day, Galore's Jacob Dekat spotted me at the Kogi food truck and snapped this pic of me in my Nasty Gal overalls.

Breathing in the Coachella air, I got some face time with my best friend, Alex Latimer, on the grass and bounced from stage to stage. We saw Bastille with a guest performance by Angel Haze.

Called it an early night at our Palm Springs pad. With two more days to go, it was crucial that I got some rest.

Another day, another party! :) Popped into the Bootsy Bellows & McDonald's pool party. This party was really fun and packed with a good crowd.

Spotted: Leonardo DiCaprio hanging with some guy friends, Aaron Paul and his wife, Lauren (cutest couple ever), and Vanessa Hudgens looking like a sun goddess. Ran into my gorgeous friend, Ashley Greene, and her boyfriend too!

Professional racecar drivers even took guests on 120mph rides in the new Corvette Stingray. Then it was time to head over to the Coachella grounds. Got to see some great performances including Capital Cities, Fat Boy Slim (which was one giant rave), Foster the People, Sleigh Bells, and Pharrell!

Later that night we hit up the Neon Carnival and met up with my friend, Gigi Hadid, who flew in from London to join in on the festivities. We started an impromptu dance circle while celebs Jared Leto, Diddy, Cassie, Kelly Osbourne and Kellan Lutz held their posts nearby. My beautiful little sister, Kaja, turned 27 at midnight and all our friends gave her any prizes we won that night.

Sandstorm, ah! It was freezing! I was so cold that I ended up having to put on everyone else's clothes. Josh gave me a pair of his pants to wear, which looked absolutely ridiculous but sometimes you gotta make sacrifices in order to stay warm!

Last day of Coachella… here we go!

In the morning, we surprised Kaja with a birthday breakfast before heading to the Lacoste party. Here, I designed my own pair of Lacoste sneakers and hung out with Gigi Hadid and the most stylish twins, Sama and Haya Abu Khadra.

Ireland Baldwin, Angel Haze and Cailin Russo joined our group and we raced to festival grounds just in time to see Calvin Harris.

I even got hooked up with the ultimate backstage experience to watch Lana Del Rey do her magic on stage while Aaron Paul shot everything on his phone! And last but not least, we ended the night soaking in Arcade Fire's incredible tunes before saying goodbye to the fest.

Although it was sad to see the weekend come to an end, I have to admit – I was looking forward to rest! It was a blast and a weekend I will never forget. Back to reality! Until next year Coachella! For more, follow me on IG & Twitter @blahblahblanda and check out my website! xx
