Desert heat, palm trees, windmills, architecture and the overall vibe of Palm Springs is something magical. I love Palm Springs anytime of the year, but when Coachella comes around it gets even more magical. It’s something in the air, an indescribable feeling that only those who have been will truly understand. I’m a California girl born + raised and I’ve been attending Coachella off and on since it was single day passes and only one weekend long. (I’m and oldie) Never have I ever seen anything more powerful and moving as I did when I saw Beyoncé triumphantly ascended the main stage for a two-hour set that was, as the New York Times put it, most likely the most “meaningful, absorbing, forceful and radical performance” any American musician will produce this year.

I was so incredibly overjoyed to be there and witness history in the making and to true Beyoncé form she did not disappoint. She put on the show of her life all while honoring the African American culture. She took such a huge platform like Coachella and basically WOKE the whole damn crowd. While it might of gone over others heads completely, it did not go over mine. In a set built around the theme of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), Beyoncé performed with an HBCU marching band and also paid homage to HBCU in her wardrobe. The first Black woman to headline Coachella and she killed it. She has raised the bar for anyone to perform after her.

My husband and I danced the night away and also watched with stunned faces as Beyoncé tore that stage up. Bitch can move… She also had a dance-off with her sister Solange, duetted with her husband Jay-Z, and reunited with her old girl gang, Destiny’s Child. Visit my story highlight COACHELLA on the gram to relive all her #blackgirlmagic. While you’re there you will also see some other favorite performances of mine by SZA, Kendrick Lamar, The Weekend, Cardi B, Migos and more. Coachella 2018 will forever be my favorite year and something I will never forget.

Palm Springs is known for its hot springs, stylish hotels, golf courses and spas. It’s also noted for its many fine examples of midcentury-modern architecture. Its core shopping district along Palm Canyon Drive features vintage boutiques, interior design shops and restaurants. The surrounding Coachella Valley offers hiking, biking and horseback riding trails. Palm Springs is a bloggers paradise with every inch of the place being the perfect desert oasis backdrop. My husband like me is also obsessed with Palm Springs. We love the vintage vibe and old Hollywood feel to it so we decided to take our time getting home and visit all our favorite spots in the desert. If you’re a first timer to the desert make sure to check out The windmills, That Pink Door, Joshua Tree, Korakia Penison, The Parker, Cabezon Dinosaurs, Downtown Palm Springs, Moorten Botanical and much much more.
