Coachella is just around the corner so we have put together our top tips for surviving Coachella and a list of necessities to pack!
TOP 10 COACHELLA FESTIVAL TIPS
1. Leave for the festival early in the morning
If you’re not camping, make sure to leave for the festival early. Traffic can get very congested and it can take hours to get to the festival.
2. Buy merchandise on the first day
Don’t miss out on the pieces you want. Buy your merch at the beginning of the first day before it gets too busy and things sell out.
3. Have a physical meeting spot for you and your friends
Come up with a unique physical spot that you can meet your friends if you get separated.
4. Porta-pottie necessities
Be sure to bring extra seat covers, toilet paper, baby wipes and hand sanitiser.
5. Save your phone battery
There are no charging stations in the festival grounds. Turn off your wi-fi, bluetooth, data and close any background apps to save battery life.
6. Plan your outfits for each day
Planning your complete outfits for each day helps save time in the morning before heading to the festival and means you wont forget a thing! Take photos of your complete outfits so you have a reference for the day when getting ready.
7. It takes time to get from stage to stage
If there’s an act you really want to see, leave early to get there. It can take a good half hour to walk between stages when it’s crowded.
8. Print out the setlist
Festival staff do hand out set time pamphlets, but don’t spend time looking for one. Print out the set times before you arrive.
9. Make a plan
Highlight the artists you want to see before you get there. Making a plan is the best way to maximize your time.
10. Don’t forget to eat and drink lots of water
Looking after yourself is the number 1 priority to make sure you last the whole weekend. This is the most important Coachella tip!
WHAT TO PACK
- Cute outfits
- Swimsuit – for pool parties or to wear as an outfit
- Comfortable shoes – You will be on your feet for 13 hours a day so while some shoes look cute, you will wish you opted for the practical option.
- Water– Bring an empty water bottle (no metal though), to fill it when you get inside.
- Warm jacket – Always bring something warm for the night time. You will thank us for this one!
- Cash – Most transactions will require cash.
- Sunscreen– The sunshine and warm weather is what makes Coachella so much fun but you don’t want to be hiding away on day 2 and 3 because you are burnt!
- Phone charger– Because who wants a dead phone?
- Hand Saniriser
- Bandana – to avoid breathing in a tonne of dust
- Spare toilet paper and wet-wipes

The Rise of Pam Rodriguez Career
Five years after Pam began modeling, she appeared on the cover of a magazine called Open Your Eyes. In addition she has modeled for other magazines such as Smooth, FHM and Lowrider. One year later she also became a business woman when she created her own line of swimwear called Pure Rodri.
Pure Rodri Collection
Named in part after herself, Pam created the Pure Rodri Collection featuring trendy swimsuits. There are several different designs that make up the collection and each piece of it is made by hand, thanks to workers in the U.S.
Unlike most other collections of bathing suits, the pieces in this collection include clear straps and are adorned with Swarovski crystals, making each bathing suit truly unique. The reasoning behind making the straps clear is to allow the women wearing it to get a more even tan line. For many women, the best part of this bathing suit collection is that they can have one designed to their specifications, allowing for a perfect fit every time. Purchasing a bathing suit from this collection can be done at the Pure Rodri e-commerce store.
Pam R Social Media Use
Like many other models, Pam has a powerful social media presence. She can be found on Instagram @pamrodriguez1, where she has 227,000 followers. She can also be found on Twitter @pamrodriguez, where she has 65.6 thousand followers.
In addition to following Pam herself, she encourages her fans to follow Pure Rodri on social media as well. The bikini line can be found on Instagram purerodriswimwear, which has 90.2 thousand followers. The brand’s Facebook page can be found purerodrisswimwear, which has 1,415 followers and growing.
Pam Rodriguez as a Businesswoman
As a model and businesswoman, Pam is the pinnacle of success. She has accomplished a lot that she can be proud of. Women all over the world are flocking to her bikini line so that they can look and feel as sexy as possible when sunbathing at the beach or lounging by the pool.
Through her talent and dedication, Pam has achieved a lot. There is no doubt that there is much more to come for her as she continues to have a successful career where she can contribute to the world in her own unique way.
She has already shown women that they can succeed just like she has done throughout her career. By persevering over the years, she has come to realize her full potential.

Bali is a place of true serenity. There’s something special about the energy of the island and it’s beautiful warm hearted people that keeps us coming back year after year. It is a place you can soul search and find yourself by embracing the spirituality of the island. Bali has always been somewhere we love to come back to because there is so much to do and something for everyone. From exploring beautiful temples, seeing local wildlife, shopping, surfing, or just relaxing poolside, Bali has it all.
When booking our trip to Bali we decided to contact our favorite Luxury travel agency, The Luxe Nomad. They are notorious for having the most stunning and impressive villas around the world and the selection they have in Bali is the best. Their concierge service set us up with the perfect Bali itinerary that did not disappoint.
Here’s the villa rundown:
4 days at The Ungasan Clifftop Resort in Uluwatu.
4 days at Villa Melissa in Canggu
2 days at One Eleven in Seminyak (not booked through The Luxe Nomad)
This resort is breathtaking to say the least. It’s panoramic ocean views, infinity pools, amazing beach club (Sunday’s Beach Club) and luxurious spa are just a few of the amazing things that The Ungasan has to offer. This is one of those resorts we will dream about coming back to over and over. If you’re looking for somewhere to get that perfect instagram shot, this place ticks all the boxes. We were lucky enough to spilt our time here between two of their most beautiful villas. We started at Villa Nora and finished at Villa Jamandara.
This stunning hidden gem in Canggu is fit for a queen. The five bedroom villa sits right on the beach so you can fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. It’s picturesque decor is a combination of modern and traditional balinese style which works beautifully well together. Our favorite part about this villa was most definitely the stunning pool and outdoor area. Villa Melissa comes staffed with a butler, housekeeping service, gardener, two chefs, and 24-hour security.
One eleven in Seminyak has been one of our favorite villas in Bali for over 6 years now. It is one of those places that the second you walk in, you feel happy and relaxed. It is right in the center of busy Seminyak and it feels like a hidden oasis because it is so calm and tranquil. Not to mention the villas all have their own private pools, open concept lounge rooms and kitchens and big bathtubs. We always highly recommend it to anyone that asks us about Bali.
If you own one of our swimsuits, you will likely have received them in one of our beautiful Luxe Gift Boxes… They’re too pretty to throw away so we have come up with some ideas on how you can recycle and reuse them! By not throwing them away you are helping to reduce waste, plus our boxes are made from recycled materials to do our part in helping toward sustainability!
