Hey guys, this is Nini from haertsmusic, and these are the items that are in my bag for Coachella.

My favorite piece of luggage is my small Rimowa case. It’s like a grown up version of a treasure chest.

  • Cracked Mirror: The case came with a small mirror which is great on the road because you often times have to get ready on the go. I  don’t even remember when it broke but the crack is now part of it.
  • Silver Bracelets: A few of them I found in random little stores, but most of them are gifts of friends or passed down from my mother.
  • Gem Stones: I like to keep gem stones with me. I’ve been collecting them since I was a little girl. I feel they give me strength, or some kind of protection. It’s great to just hold one in your hand sometimes.
  • sunglasses
  • postcards and photos: I like to shop for postcards wherever we go. I buy a lot of them, and I put them up in the bus or just keep them in my note book to look at. Sometimes I even do what you are supposed to do and write one to someone. But they are mainly my souvenirs. I also carry some photos of my friends and my family. This one is of my mother.
  • Moleskine Notebook.
  • Rilke, Letters to a young poet. My favorite book.
  • Bose noise cancelling headphones. Life savers!
  • Chanel Creme Blush: I don’t wear makeup during the day and don’t like carrying any around. That’s why I love to have the Chanel creme blush with me just in case. It’s one small thing but I use it as a blush, on my lips and on my eyes.

We’re headed to Chicago next week to celebrate Vans Classics & have an all around good time. Come hang out with us at Bottom Lounge on May 15th at 8pm. The show is free with RSVP to ages 17+! Music from HAERTS & Yawn, and customized Vans giveaways by local artist Chad Kouri. Get on the guest list by emailing rsvptovans@gmail.com with the subject line: Classic & Chicago.
