Desert Nights with Naila
As everyone head off to the Desert for a weekend at Coachella, our feeds were flooded with images from bloggers, celebrities and musicians. No doubt about it, the Who’s who attended Coachella and it all looks like they had one hell of a time! But the event doesn’t stop there. Brands and companies have created quite the buzz by hosting parties and having A-list clientele attend. With all the hype and time spent at these events, it’s no wonder our girl Naila, took some time out to slow things down and get back to nature. The setting of Palm Springs is incredible – rolling hills surround the desert flats with sky-high palm trees. It’s picturesque, beautiful and well, when dusk rolls in, it’s the perfect  moment to take a few snaps… Naila is seen here wearing the Rico Kaftan in White. Photographed by Own The Light.

I sold it to a Fortune 500 company, ran it for a year, and ended up leaving Los Angeles to travel. Right now I’m pursuing the spiritual path full-time, via yoga, meditation, and energetic healing. Sometimes I do branding consultation on the side, and work on creative projects like this kimono collaboration with Beachgold; www.beachgoldbali.com/COLxbeachgold What are you thoughts on blogging/social media?
