SO for the last 10 days I've been COVERED and COVERING others in glitter around Coachella. My bezzie (Jenna) owns
The Gypsy Shrine, a company committed to turning free spirits into colourful pieces of art; weapon of choice, GLITTER!
In the space of 18 months, she's taken it global and I couldn't be more proud of my girl for storming the world! She decided it was a good move to get to Coachella, I agreed so naturally, I joined.
The third musketeer involved in the Californian takeover is Katrina, Jenna's other bezzie (now MINE). Katrina is the owner of Aqua & Ink , a GOALS travel blog that I was stalking long before we met.
I arrived into LAX after a 30 hour flight (DON'T) from Sydney. After a long-ass Uber ride and a shower at our Airbnb, I went straight to Topshop at The Grove to meet the girls. Between the 3 of us, we crammed in a few fancy gigs, which I AM going to name drop because our girl Jenna is so bloody big time now she wangled us into them all!
- Pretty Little Things x Paper Mag VIP - Topshop VIP - NAS Gig & Restaurant Opening - Arsenic Yacht Photo Shoot -
In these events we transformed so many people into glitter Kings and Queens. The success is testament to Jenna's plot-losing hard work. ANDDD The Gypsy Shrine secured a permanent concession stand at the Los Angeles Topshop after meeting Phillip Green; ahhh it brings me so much joy to be a part of the team!
I have a few trip highlights, the first would have to be meeting Loriann, founder of Wife Of The Party. This woman is the ultimate GIRL BOSS and curated the Pretty Little Things x Paper Mag party. She is the most trusted high-society events manager there is, holding experiences for Mary J Blige and The Kardashians on the reg.
Loriann was beyond hospitable; she put us up in an awesome RV, fed and watered 3 'rabbit-in-headlights' girls on multiple occasions, and gave us all some invaluable advice! If you're reading this Loriann, THANK YOU and I hope to repay when we next meet!
The second would have to be just spending time with Jenna and Katrina. The pair 1) Make me laugh 2) Put up with me being a fucking idiot, both of which is rare. SO, all-in-all a damn good trip with enough in-jokes to keep the three of us annoying everyone on Facebook for a fair few months!
If you want to buy any of the GLITTER, head to www.thegypsyshrine.com before they sell out!
