This past weekend was Coachella weekend 1, and while I didn’t splurge on a ticket to the actual concert, me and some girlfriends took the opportunity to take a weekend getaway to the desert and check out all the best parties!

Night 1: GenArt MUSE Party

Set literally in the middle of the desert, the GenArt party attracted the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Ke$ha. While the temps may have transformed the event into cold-chella, black-lit tents and Ciroc vodka cocktails kept guests warm.

Day 2: Nylon Magazine Party

Set on a private estate, the Nylon party definitely had the best {free} food offerings of any of the parties I went to (barbecue meats galore, plus couscous salad – my fav, and drool-worthy desserts), not to mention a hosted Voli Spirits bar!

Day 2: Guess Hotel Party

Guess rented out a gorgeous mansion for their bash, where they served up vodka-infused shaved ice and gave out lots of free Guess swag {hello new denim fanny pack, perfect for Runyon hikes}!

Night 2: Neon Carnival

Brent Bolthouse’s immense party was supposedly THE party of the weekend (and I guess of all Coachella, since it is not happening again next week). An entire airplane landing strip was converted into a pop-up carnival complete with rides, games and a giant dance floor. While I did spot Kevin Connolly at the next door banquette (I have such a crush on E!), I neglected to see Paris Hilton, Gerard Butler, Usher, and all the other A-listers in attendance. Note to self: If I go again, DRESS WARMER.

Day 3: Lacoste L!ve Party

Perhaps the largest of the day-time soirees, the Lacoste party included Patron open bar (and Patron ice-pops, though they were all gone by the time I arrived, wah) and two food trucks on-site, as well as a braiding bar and a pedicure station. It seemed most of the celebs chilled poolside at this party on Saturday, but I was able to spot Lo Bosworth from afar.

Although the party-hopping was exhausting, overall Fauxchella was an awesome experience! Until next year…
