Summer festival season might be over, (I know it’s a really sad time) but there are plenty of festivals which kick-off in the winter. Your hair has probably endured all the lovely hot weather of this summer, and now has to be put through its paces in the cold and the wind of winter. Keeping your hair fresh, tidy and nourished on a normal day is difficult but at a festival, it’s certainly no easy feat.
Flower crowns are pretty much a festival staple these days, coming in all sorts of styles, colours, and sizes with some even lighting up! Buying them ready-made at a festival or even online can cost a fortune, but with a little creative power and a few basic materials, they can be made really, really easily!
Last year Joss and I managed to get our hands on a second hand, 5-berth, Sprite Major caravan and since then have spent our weekends trying to get it ready for its first outing in a few weeks.
Over the May bank holiday, I kicked off the festival season with a bang (plus a lot of glitter and paint) and went to the fabulous Hogsozzle!
Hogsozzle is an intimate, smaller scale festival but what it lacks in attendee numbers it makes up for in personality, individuality, and creativity. This 3-day festival, nestled in the Hertfordshire countryside was amazing. There were sequins, feathers, fur, fancy dress and enough paint to rival a Dulux warehouse – it all made for a fantastic festival.
What do I need to take to a festival?
This is one of the most common questions I get asked by everyone thinking of going to a festival. Although what I take differs from festival to festival, for the most part, it remains the same. Here is my comprehensive list of what to pack for a festival so that you are ready to hit the festival fields this summer.
Festivals are a foodie’s paradise! I have been to festivals and always made the effort to try new food, but with the vast choice of food on offer, it’s hard to know what to go for. Not to mention, that forking out (no pun intended) on food every day can cost an absolute fortune. This very simple and healthy recipe is a go-to for me when I am preparing my food to take to a festival.
