Coachella Countdown Playlist: Lana Del Rey

With Coachella a mere few days away and the heat creeping up on us here in so-cal, we are officially ready to party! We’re saving the best for last, and it’s our girl Lana Del Rey! Her voice is amazing, she’s oh so fierce, and we’re kind of blushing a bit over here because recently got a pair of our Notellas and is obsessed! <3

Let's gear up for summer with this party have, Summertime Sadness.

Coachella Countdown Playlist: Arcade Fire

One of the head liners we’re most stoked on this year has to be Arcade Fire. They’re just one of those bands who always puts out good new music. We’re currently into their new singles “Reflektor” and “Afterlife”. What’s your favorite Arcade Fire song?

Woman Crush Wednesday: Olivia Wilde

Okay, so she’s one of the most sexy and badass women in Hollywood, an advocate for animals, funny lady, and rocked the sexiest baby bump at the Golden Globes this year. What’s not to love? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. But, we must say we adore Olivia even more now that we’ve seen her don our Mocky Mocks! She can do no wrong.

Coachella Playlist: MGMT

Who doesn’t love some MGMT? These guys have been killing it for years! Lately their sound has evolved into something different, but it still retains the familiarity we’ve come to love from the boys. We are stoked to see the tunes come to life soon at Coachella. Check out the video to one of our favorite new songs by them!

7. MGMT: “Cool Song No. 2″

Okay, but really… Who’s ready for Coachella!? #cantwait

Coachella Playlist: Blood Orange

Dev Hynes is the mastermind producer behind Sky Ferreria’s “Everything is Embarrassing” and Solange’s “Losing You” but he does pretty badass all on his own under the stage monicker Blood Orange. We love the vibe of his new album Cupid Deluxe. Can’t wait to see him shred at Coachella this year!

6. Blood Orange: “Chamakay”

#WCW: Anna Kendrick

Okay, it’s a well known thing, funny women rule. But what about when that funny woman can also act, sing, and dress to kill? Anna Kendrick definitely falls under that category! We got to spend time with her last month at the Sundance Film Festival, and are so happy to confirm she is a grade a sweetie and humble to boot! What’s not to crush? We love her in movies like the Up In The Air, the Twilight saga and Pitch Perfect. This Woman Crush Wednesday is dedicated to her.

Random Anna Fact: “I rarely get recognised. It’s always a shock when someone notices me. I always think they must be confusing me with someone else.” – Anna Kendrick

Coachella Playlist: CHVRCHES

We’re super into Chvrches front woman, Lauren Mayberry’s style. We love how she pairs her rock and roll vibe with flawy dresses and playful prints. And her sweet melodic voice? I mean… <3 When this single first came out we were jamming to it in the office and are now so excited to go see them play live at Coachella this year! Who are you most excited to go see?

5. Chvrches: “The Mother We Share”
