My festival essentials
Dress*, sunglasses*, head-chain* - Boohoo
Boohoo wanted to reinvent the classic 'what's in my bag' blog post, so I decided to feature a few key items found in my festival bag. I've been to a few festivals in my time, so like to think I've got the packing down to a tee - so here we go...
A little rucksack is always essential for a festival (unless you're the bumbag kind, of course). It's always my bag of choice for a festival, perfect for keeping things safe and ensuring your arms are free for obligatory dancing. I picked up this little brown leather-look rucksack from Primark last year and it's been a staple festival piece since then.
Only the day to day essentials go in my rucksack - there's no point carrying a heavy bag around all day and you want to leave plenty of room to sneak a few cans in your bag too. First thing to go in is my phone, essential for quick snaps when I don't want to lug my camera around. There's always a pair of sunnies thrown in too, you never know what the British weather will be doing, so it's best to be prepared.
Along with jewellery, accessories and any fancy dress, I like to keep my makeup topped up throughout the day so lipstick and a swipe of matte powder are always handy in my bag. It's also good to have a mini pack of facewipes, for your hands more than anything! Also, everyone knows batiste is a festival essential and this mini can is brilliant to pop in your backpack.
