We are less than ONE WEEK AWAY from the gates opening to Glastonbury Festival 2017! I'm even more excited and emotional than usual; maybe it's the thought of there being no Glasto in 2018, which means I have to squeeze as much as possible into this one, knowing it'll be two years before I get … Continue reading The Best Smaller Acts at Glastonbury 2017
Festival food has come a long way from burgers resembling cardboard in stale rolls with soggy, half-cooked chips. These days you can find almost any cuisine you desire, and there are some food vendors that are so good I have genuinely dreamt about them. I've listed my ultimate favourites below, I hope you'll be able to track … Continue reading The Best Festival Food Vendors
http://www.kissandglitter.com Insta: @kissandglitter It's got to be said that there's a lot of glitter brands out there now. Instagram is obsessed with the sparkly stuff, it occupies every feed... or maybe that's just mine 😉 I love the creativity of these brands, and some of the smaller UK-based ones are really catching my eye. One such brand is Kiss … Continue reading Kiss & Glitter – Company Spotlight
In the run up to festival season I've been getting ready in some unorthodox ways. Two days ago I travelled to Coventry with gorgeous twins Abi & Hannah to get my first festival-related ink. For years I've wanted a tattoo to represent my love of festivals, but a lot of the ideas I came across … Continue reading I Finally Got a Festival Tattoo…
WARNING: Probably NSFW! In 2015 I took my Qumox SJ4000 camera to Bestival and filmed my friends and I having an incredible time in the sunshine. I edited this afterwards in Final Cut Pro. I hope you enjoy! The song used is the Chemical Brothers - Go! because they played that year and was our … Continue reading Bestival 2015 – a video!

I'll try and break down the essentials so you don't end up at the bottom of Pennard Hill without tent pegs... if you don't … Continue reading A Newbie’s Guide: What to Pack
My birthday falls in early January, which has always meant however I choose to celebrate it must be an indoors activity. My long-suffering friends know every year I like to do something different, not just the usual 'drinks at a pub' birthday affair. I like to use my birthday as an excuse to guilt my friends into … Continue reading The Green Escape – a perfect “glamping” weekend!
I wanted use this blog to talk about a few companies I've discovered over my years of festivalling. I'm not one to focus hugely on fashion at festivals, but I do love wearing outfits I wouldn't in "normal life", and throwing glitter on every morning (usually to cover the bags under my eyes from the big … Continue reading Headspace Headdresses – Company Spotlight
I first went to Secret Garden Party in 2012. I didn't know much about it, but my best friend Katey suggested we go as she'd heard great things, and it was a fallow year for Glastonbury due to the London Olympic Games so I was open to trying new festivals. I hardly knew any of the bands on … Continue reading The Last Ever Secret Garden Party… why you should be there!
In 2012 I decided to experience a festival in a different way. I'd always seen the bright orange tabards of the Oxfam stewards when I had attended as a ticket holder; they were always so friendly with big smiles and some even had glitter on their faces. So when I couldn't persuade any of my … Continue reading Oxfam Festival Stewarding
