This year I went to my first ever music festival! When I turned thirty earlier in the year I put together a list of things I wanted to do in my thirties and this was one of them! So, a huge thank you to V Festival for the opportunity to attend Weston Park for the weekend. I have to admit, before we went I was a little bit scared about the prospect of camping for a night in a field full of strangers. But I survived!
It was fun to spend time with my two best friends, have my first ever camping experience and to watch some live music whilst having a weekend away from a laptop….heaven! My favourite acts were Jay Z and surprisingly Ellie Goulding!
Below I have put together a checklist for anyone camping at a festival alongside a peek at my festival outfits and glitter makeup…
For My Festival Outfits I packed lots of layers and dresses to keep my legs out, incase it rained rather than having trousers or jeans sticking to my legs. Wrap dresses, denim jackets, waterproofs and hoodies were pretty much an essential alongside my black Timberland boots, which were super comfortable and didn’t rub, even though it was my first time wearing them!
Festivals are all about glitter and crazy colours, so it is the perfect time to have fun with your makeup! For a little DIY glitter action I stuck some stars that I picked up from the craft section in Wilko to my face with liquid highlighter, which I held in place with setting spray and hairspray. I actually did this makeup whilst in the car – are you impressed?
