Ready to take over the #Coachella2017 Celebrations with @HeelysWorldWide
For today’s young bohemians the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival experience or any Coachella experience would be remiss without some exciting highlights and memories, right? No matter if you go on weekend one or two (why is there such competition between the two?!), there’s bound to be something that stands out. You never know who will show up or what surprises are in store each year.

Day 3 x Sunday
#HeelysDoesCoachella x Revolve Festival
Embarking on a journey with your friends can be quite challenging but I believe it’s something that every person should experience at least once in his or her life. Exploring, conquering fears together and discovering new things about each other makes the road trip and experience ten times better, even when we return from the trip we took with friends, we will always keep those memories and share them for the rest of our lives.
As our trip to Coachella 2017 weekend 1 came to an end I couldn’t help to feel overjoyed throughout the entire festival + all the creative happenings thanks to @HeelysWorldWide our overall experience was beyond fun and yet super creative hope to keep partnering with brands such as Heelys who are all about creating moments that will stay with you for the rest of your life!! Can’t thank you enough for the feedback each one of you gave us on our socials and don’t hesitate to show some massive love to @HeelysWorldWide heelys.com for allowing us to bring you along and show you through our digital space all the fun creative activations the happened during the festival.

The Happiest of Hours Brunch x NYLON Estate
The Happiest of times with @JohnnieWalkerUS and @NylonMag Who said Sundays can’t be fun? #JohnnieWalker #NylonFestival, I close my festival experience on a high note during the most cozy yet fun brunch and had a blast while relaxing by the pool + great music with the greatest people def. a Sunday brunch to remember for life.
Johnnie Walker is proud to continue taking a stand for cultural progress. Being Latino (Venezuela for those who might don't know) I'm beyond stoked to support the "Keep Walking America" campaign, and I will continue to partner with brands who support beautiful stories of personal progress around the world.
