Festival Season - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hi there,
How are you all doing today?

With June well under our belt we're most definitely heading into Festival season.
Festivals tend to be arranged for the Summer months in the UK when the weather is supposed to be hot and sunny - well that doesn't always ring true here does it and often there's scenes of mega mud pits at the various venues.  To be fair we're equipped to handle that now-a-days and the highest sales are in the all-round products that help out these situations.  Wellies are now firm favourites to purchase prior to a weekend of camping fun, food, drink and music for ‘just in case situations’ as are fashionable rain jackets and hats.  Anyway enough of bad weather talk, let’s talk about what other items are needed for festivals.

My daughter is off to Glastonbury this year after a couple of years not being able to get a ticket!  I like to listen to all her chats about it, like who they are going to see, what stage etc ... Sir Elton John is headlining on the main stage and I'm so envious.  I had tickets to see him many years ago, unfortunately he suffered a throat infection so had to postpone the concert that was at Leeds Castle.  The new date was when we were on holiday so sadly we had to sell our tickets and didn't get to see him, that's one of my big regrets.  I can't wait to hear about Glasto when Sophie returns and I'm sure she'll have loads of stories.

Sophie and her boyfriend have been out looking for tents, they've both decided it will be better to go for a bigger five man version - that's so they've got plenty of room, not so they can share with anyone else! 
I suggested a camping trolly to ferry everything from the car, it's a huge venue and I'm sure they won't want to carry everything.  They aren't taking any food as such, just plenty of snacks that will keep them going.  Also they won't bother with much alcohol.  It will be hard to keep it cold and there's nothing worse than a warm drink eh!

Items marked with * have been gifted to me, comments are my own. 

Among the things Sophie will be taking is this fabulous Festival Bag.  
The Festival Bag from Paper Bag Co* have created the 'leave no trace' option meaning you can attend a much anticipated festival of your choice keeping your impact on the world minimal.  Priced at just under £40, means it's going to be minimal to your purse too!

  1. Glastonbury sounds like a dream festival, and wow Elton John! I van imagine you regret never seeing him. I regret not seeing Paul McCartney as he was in Arnhem years and years ago. That's the city next to our village. Ah well, perhaps I can spot him in Rye one day......
