Summer festival essentials

Anyway, this week, I've been given the chance to head off to Boardmasters festival as a VIP for the whole week with none other than Original Source (AKA the makers of those amazing smelling shower gels), which means goodbye port-a-loos, and hello private showers. Now that my friends, is my kind of festival. Here's what I'll be packing to keep me feeling fresh.

I always used to think I was a fairly low maintenance kind of girl (I say this prior to my phase of putting 47 kilos of makeup on my face each day) but whenever festival season comes about I realise exactly how much I cherish my home comforts. I like to shower, I like to wash my face and I like my hair to be at least somewhat clean at all times. Is that really too much to ask?! 

The Beauty Products

Since I'll be throwing on a full face of makeup before I leave,
I've decided to only bring some of the basics along with me, including a spot of my favourite SPF (just incase the sun
decides to randomly show up) a travel size of dry shampoo to keep me feeling fresh, a refillable travelo spray (to keep me smelling fresh) and a nude-tinted lip balm because - let's be
real here - who wants to constantly top up their liquid lipstick when you're dancing around in a crowd of five thousand people? 

In the UK, festivals aren't always sunshine and sandals. In fact, it's more of a case of wet mud and wellies all week long, which is exactly why I've shied away from camping at festivals. But now, since I've got the luxury of VIP showers I'm of course going to bring some of the new Original Source Moisturising Shower Milks because, well, it'd be rude not to, right? They come in four different flavours (I legit want to drink them) - Cherry & Almond Milk, Sweet Apple & Vanilla Milk, Green Banana & Bamboo Milk and Lime & Coconut Milk. 




And of course - what with Pokemon Go taking over my life and wanting to Instagram-story just about everything these days, a portable charger is a must. I'll also need enough battery to hook up to my trusty portable speaker - for those times when I just want to chill out, blast some music and eat pizza with my friends on the beach.

What sort of internet person would I be if I didn't bring every gadget I own to a festival? I've had an Instax camera for ages now, but I only bring it out for special occasions that I'd like to document - like a festival. They might not be the most practical thing to lug around, but I lobe being able to collect memories in physical form.
