Coachella 2011!

I WAS THERE! Yay!  It was so much fun because of the great music and the fact that my boyfriend's friend hooked us up with VIP passes so I got to see a bunch of celebs.  I'm only going to list the ones that I saw even though I know more were there.

Bam Margera
Kellan Lutz
Penn Badgely
Scott Speedman
Teresa Palmer (I think)
Eric Christian Olsen
Brandon Davis
Sal Masekela
Joshua Jackson
Jeff Goldblum
Eric Wareheim
Busy Phillips
Nicole Richie
Camilla Belle
Diane Kruger
Cory Monteith
Emma Roberts
Seth Meyers
Chanel Iman
Malin Akerman
Kirsten Dunst
Ashley Greene
Shiloh Fernandez
Jessica Stam
Kelly Osbourne

And I didn't see these two at Coachella, but while in LA I saw Shannon Elizabeth and Judy Greer.

I don't travel often, but I'm so happy I got to vacation in California while there were snow flurries back in Chicago!  I love Chicago though, but clearly we're behind in fashion or just don't care or have a different sense because nearly EVERYONE in California had the same exact outfit, shoes, hair.  It's probably because it's always warm in Cali that people get to wear whatever they want every day...jealous. 

I haven't seen one person with ombre hair in Illinois yet, but half the girls at Coachella had it.  I've been wanting it for three years now because I really think Gisele started it and I still can't get anyone around here to do it!  Don't know whether I should jump on the bandwagon or not, but it's only hair color so I think I am going to :)

Anyway, I want to give The Chemical Brothers a lot of credit for such a great performance on the first night.  Best performance of the weekend. Here is a video:

 Also watched other artists like Cage the Elephant, Crystal Castles, Mumford & Sons, Kanye West, Green Velvet.

I wanted to go up to some of the celebs and ask for pictures, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it because I don't want to bother anyone while they are trying to have fun listening to music which is the point of going to the fest.  And not to mention, I'm introverted and weird so it was just be awkward.  Here are some pictures I caught really quick:

Joshua Jackson
Camilla Belle
Nicole Richie

 Some pictures from my time in California:

Next stop Detroit for DEMF!!!  Need to see Skrillex and Venetian Snares.

That looks like it was such a great time! I'm introverted too and wouldn't have been able to ask celebrities for pictures either but I love that you got some candids.

OMG awesome! i really want to see Mumford and Sons ... I just can't do concerts like these, I get tired easily ... and I'm the same way when I see a celebrity ... I don't want to bother them, but OMG i love Joshua Jackson!

@Ev: I get tired too I had to plop myself in the grass several times. I always thought Joshua Jackson was short but he's surprisingly really tall. Mumford & Sons sound great live. Live is usually better in my opinion :)
