Preparing for Innings Fest 2020

Festival season has finally arrived, which means it is time to prepare for a glorious spring season of music in Arizona.

The Innings festival brings music lovers and baseball fans together for a two-day celebration of Spring Training on February 29 and March 1.

Located at Tempe Beach and Tempe Arts Park, the third annual Innings Festival will provide two full days of music, baseball and incredible food.

This year's headliners include The Dave Matthews Band and Weezer with appearances from MLB icons like Jake Peavy and Bret Saberhagen.

The festival features three stages and 18 performances for an experience that won't disappoint.

In between sets you can indulge in a variety of local food vendors, baseball activities and sponsor lounges.

Covering the festival this year will be my second time attending Innings and I can't wait to share my experience.

In honor of the season, I made a list of 5 necessities to survive a music festival.

​CamelBak Hydropak

The best gift I ever got was a CamelBak Hydrobak. The small backpack carries 50 ounces of water and is easy to fill up at any water station inside the festival.

Disposable Camera

As we all know, a camera is always nice to have on hand inside the gates of a festival. personally, I think the best type of camera to bring with you is a disposable, its more fun and much easier to haul around. You can buy a disposable camera at almost any grocery store or pharmacy. I often use the Fujifilm, you can buy a pack of 2 at Walmart for $15

Picnic Blanket

There is always one day of the festival that isn't as appealing as the others, so take advantage of that by packing a blanket to sit on and enjoy a relaxing day laying in the sun listening to new music.


One of the best parts of any festival is the food vendors, so spending your money on overpriced tacos will definitely be worth it. But for the time spent holding your spot in the pit I always pack some snacks from home. Nothing taste better than goldfish and pretzels when you've been sitting in front of a stage for four hours.

Portable Charger

Invest in a decent portable charger. It will make your festival experience a little less stressful when you have the ability to charge your phone in the middle of a set.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
