Kaaboo Music Fest

Hey, Hey Babes!

Happy Hump Day! I hope you guys are having an easy week so far. I have been catching up on all the work I missed while I was prepping for and attending Kaaboo Music Fest here in Dallas! Speaking of Kaaboo lets just get this post started, I have been dying to share my experience with you all.

Kaaboo started in San Diego and has been going on there for about 5 years now I believe. Recently the festival has started branching out to new locations like Texas. Kaaboo Texas was held that the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX, a little bit outside of Dallas.

Now obviously this was Kaaboo’s first year in Texas so naturally they had a few kinks but for the most part it seemed like everything was running smoothly. If you follow me on Instagram then you know that my #1 complaint was that I was supposed to have VIP 3 day passes for the event because I was invited as an influencer to make content and really experience everything they had to offer but I was only given GA. This definitely put a little bit of a damper on the first day and kept me from being able to experience aspects of Kaaboo but what can you do? I made the most of it and still got to hear good music and hangout with my friends.

The lineup for Texas was actually really great, I got to watch some artists I have always wanted to see and you were able to get so close to the stages for pretty much all the performances. My faves from the 2 days I went were definitely Alanis Morissette, Little Big Town, and Andy Grammer! Alanis has been on my concert bucket list forever so seeing her was amazing.

While you were waiting for performers Kaaboo had some fun stuff to fill those slots of time like lounges stocked up with drinks and snacks, photobooths, an arcade, and art exhibits. I had TOO much fun playing in the arcade while I was waiting on Andy Grammer!

Since Ramadan fell during Kaaboo I couldn’t eat or drink until the evening so I DEF had food/drink FOMO for most of the day :P OH and they had these BOMB hydration stations which again, FOMO, but they had giant fan misters which felt AMAZINGGGG!

Despite the few struggles I had with Kaaboo I still had a great time in the end. i got to listen to good music, hangout with my favourite people, and get some Insta worthy shots ;) So I still count it as a win. I would love to know your thoughts if you went to Kaaboo Texas though so leave them down!

But First Let Me Take A Snap151

HIIII BABES!

I am bringing you ALLLLLL the colour and brightness with this post to help you get though this Tuesday or as I like to call it, pre hump day. I also just REALLY want to share my experience at a new interactive pop up in Dallas, Snap 151. These new “Selfie Pop Ups” are all the rage right now so being the Basic Blogger B*tch that I am I had to hop on this trend!

1A4A8986.jpg

Snap 151 is located in Mockingbird Station and will be popped up there until May 19th. Tickets are $20 which is honestly less than I thought it would be and children 3 and under get in for $10. You get a 50 minutes to explore the space and get pictures at the 10 interactive exhibits, It was more than enough time in my case. I had time to make tons of fun videos, boomerangs, etc, plus shoot with my photographer!

Here are shots taken from each interactive exhibit EXCEPT the flowers and gold wall.

So a few tips for anyone looking to check this out. I would definitely bring some outfit changes because you can basically do a new outfit at every exhibit and also if you aren’t super skilled with photography or have someone coming with you who is, bring a photographer because the lighting is a little hard to work with at some of the spots and I would have been LOST without Kendra(photog).

If you have been wanting to check one of these interactive pop ups out I hope this helps shed some light on them for you. My experience with Snap was super fun and I left with some great content for my socials so no complaints here. The only critique I would have is that there is quite a bit of just empty wall space that I think could definitely be used for more photo-ops.

If you do go to Snap 151 definitely hit me up in the comments or my socials and let me know your thoughts!

I hope you guys have a fab week and I will talk to you soon.

Can we just take a minute to admire this gorgeous room and THAT VIEW though * insert heart eyes * like all the goals. I literally would just lounge and take in the view all the time because it is gorgeous!

I had the pleasure of being upgraded to the Gold Lounge and let me just tell you guys it is SO WORTH IT!!! The breakfast is freaking amazing and I would have been lost without it to feed my inner fatty.

Besides the Gold Lounge the Fairmont has tons of other fab accommodations like their gorgeous pool. They also have an A M A Z I N G gym where I went to burn off all the yummy food from the lounge ;)

Speaking of food, the room service at the Fairmont is DELICIOUS you guys. I truly lived my best life watching movies and enjoying their wings and fries.

I don’t have a single negative thing to say about my stay at the Fairmont Dallas except that it ended too soon ;) If you need a staycation or you’re in town visiting TRUST ME you will want to stay at the Fairmont!
