Coachella Festival Camping Guide and Packing List

Coachella Festival Camping Guide and Packing List - Sprouted Fresh

I am so excited to share with you all of my favorite tips and tricks on car camping at Coachella. We definitely upped our car camping game last year over the previous year, with each year becoming much more awesome and a little more extravagant! For the small price of $113, the car camping pass will transform the way you and a few friends experience Coachella. If you are a part of a car caravan with a group friends, be sure to stay right next to each other in the car camping line the entire time, in order to get car spots right next to each other in the campgrounds.

If you show up to Coachella unprepared, the dessert will definitely take its toll on you, but if you follow my advice below, you will have the best weekend of your life!

How to Plant a Flower Bed from Scratch

How to Plant a Flower Bed from Scratch - Sprouted Fresh

I have been so inspired lately to plant everything in sight! I think most of it comes from finally living in a climate in California that gets sunny and warm. I always love visiting my childhood home in Oklahoma because my parents are fantastic gardeners and have planted numerous flower, vegetable, and herb gardens over the years. To be honest, I am surprised that I have taken such a liking to gardening, in my attempt to have a green thumb.

The flower bed in my front yard had a really large rose bush, some other large green mystery plant, and that’s really it. I kept looking at the very sad flower bed each time I pulled into the driveway and knew I had to do something to spruce it up.

Succulent Planter + Faux Greenery

Sprouted Fresh - Succulent Planter + Faux Greenery

I am so excited to share this super easy DIY project with you! I have had a bit of a green thumb lately so this project was the perfect way to test out my “gardening” skills. It only took 30 minutes to make and is the best centerpiece for our coffee table.

I purchased this gorgeous gold and glass terrarium that usually costs $49.99, but is on sale now for only $20!

My next step was to head to my local nursery for some succulents. Golden Nursery was such a lovely local nursery down the street from me in San Mateo and their succulent and cacti selection was incredible! Who knew their was over 50 different types of succulents and cacti? I picked up a few smaller succulents and cacti, along with some organic succulent and cacti potting soil – you only need a small bag!

The SkinSpirit Facial That Transformed My Skin

The SkinSpirit Facial That Transformed My Skin
I have talked a bit in the past about skincare and beauty products I use. I am by no means a full-time beauty blogger, or even a half-time beauty blogger, but part of being a lifestyle blogger is sharing with you the experiences and things that inspire me day to day.

Skincare was something I didn’t truly pay much attention to until about two years ago. From the time I started wearing make-up around 14, I was using over-the-counter acne medicine, my beloved Cetaphil, Proactiv, and many years of different types of Neutrogena products. Now, at the time, I am sure these skincare products were helping to decently maintain my skin, and all I truly wanted for them to accomplish was decreasing the amount of acne I ALWAYS had on my face.

Fast forward 10 years, I finally woke up one day and realized that if I invested in my skin, it would be one of the best gifts I could ever give both my current and future self. Here I was, 24 and still struggling with acne, not necessarily severe, but enough that I still was not always comfortable stepping out with no makeup on or at least concealer for my pimples.

I have rounded up my five very favorite must-have items in my kitchen right now. They transition perfectly from winter to spring and are some of my favorites to entertain with.

Spring is here and that makes me excited to step-up my kitchen game. I have always loved to cook and entertain, and as a twenty-something, it has taken me some time to slowly start to build up some of my favorite kitchen pieces. I didn’t register for wedding gifts, as many people do when they are planning to get married, instead, we chose to have a honeymoon fund that our friends and family could donate to.

I missed out on instantly acquiring all of the dreamy flatware, cutlery, and kitchen gadgets that so many women receive as gifts leading up to their wedding day. So instead, I have had to start slow and acquire what I can, when I can, to build up my dream kitchen. I am a woman who loves all things neutral, so it may come as no surprise that my kitchen decor and style is filled with neutral decor as well.
