Festival Essentials: A Fashionistas Guide

So it's here, the festival season! No matter where your going there will be some essentials that everyone will need! Hope everyone is taking advantage of the glorious weather the UK has been sporting recently an topping up their tans!? 

Anyway even though I wont be attending any festivals this year I wanted to post as I know loads of you will be. So here are my must have items of choice for any festival goer this year.

Dry shampoo

Any festival girls must! Bastise has always been my dry shampoo of choice! 


Match or clash them with your outfit! Whatever you do wellies are a must at any festival.. You can't go wrong with black ones but if you want some colour then these Hunter and Joules wellies wont go a miss

A cover up

Poncho or shawl will help cover up when the sun goes down. I love this Pink Topshop Kimono £65. This would also look great over a bikini on holiday or with shorts at a BBQ so you would get a few wears out of it too! :)

Statement lashes

Even if you plan on slumming it you can't go wrong with some statement lashes, better than faffing around with mascara and also they won't run down your face when it rains (or you cry!). I love these Shu Uemura Brown feather eyelashes £18.50.


A bit of bling should be on every fashionista festival goers list! Anything goes at festivals so it is a chance to let your wild size out ;)

Topshop £22.50


To shade them peepers from too much sun or to disguise hungover eyes from the night before? Either way I love these babies from Ray-Ban £135.

RAY-BAN Aviator sunglasses

So there you have a few things to tickle your fancy when shopping for any festival this summer :) What are your essentials for the festival season? Thanks for reading :)

Recent Purchases!

Hey guys! Hope everyone is enjoying the fab weather we've been having? I know I have! I've got the weekend off and spent today being pampered and thought I'd pop up a post as well!
So I've been shopping and thought I'd share my recent buys with you! :) I will be using some of the make up this weekend too so I hope to get a review up of them to add too! I have been meaning to add this post for well over a week but I have had a pretty rough pregnancy week this week so have only just got the chance. If any readers have any tips to perk me up during pregnancy throw them my way please! :)


Maxi dress £18 
What a bargain is this dress!? It is a little long for me so I know I'll end up having to lift it up all the time, I was going to get the petite but then I thought that being pregnant if its longer then it won't ride up as much when my bump grows. Either way £18 you just can't complain! I'll definitely be buying a few in fact I've also just ordered the mustard coloured one :) 

Heart shirt £36 
I love this shirt- it will look so cute tucked into shorts in the summer it if I'm too bumpy then with jeans or leggings? Or tucked into a skirt maybe? But I love this anyway plus it's roomy enough to hopefully last! Anyway as soon as I saw it I had to have it! If you manage to get one buy it as it's sold out online now I think!

Cami top £18 
I've got this top in cream too so when I saw the pale pink I thought I'm getting it! It's such a useful lightweight top and would recommend it to anyone! Looks lovely matched with jeans and a blazer... Or even tucks into a skirt! Definitely a staple summer top. 


I popped into oasis on my lunch break the other day and saw they were having a sale and I needed some new jewelry and thought it would be rude not to!! The orange necklace I plan to wear with the black Topshop maxi. I also think it would look fab to a festival or something like that! :). I love the collar necklace and have a few outfits in mind for it!  I also got this light Blue blazer in the sale for £32, looks really lovely just thrown on and can see myself wearing it loads. You can never have too many Blazers!

Asos dress £32 

I love white dresses at the minute and this one caught my eye its such a cute summery dress which will look lovely dressed up or down! Win! Also its very roomy which will prove a hit soon I'm sure. I will also get wear out of this when I'm huge in the winter with tights and a cardi.

Toiletries and Cosmetics 

MAC Speed Dial Lipstick 
Tom Ford Lipgloss in Peach Absolute
Tom Ford Lipgloss in Lost Cherry - Too beautiful for words and worth every penny!
Illamasqua -  Pure pigment and was £10 in the sale!
Shu Uemura - Love these babies and I'll be wearing them soon!

And this wasn't going to be originally added but just got it today and thought it was too cute not to add! 

 Jo Malone candles are my absolute fave! So I picked this one up for the baby's room as you do! :) It's a little version and I think now I will end up getting a few to scatter around his or hers room! Spoilt baby? Yes maybe but if it's good enough for Mama its good enough for Baba! :) It's such a fresh scent that will really lift a room!

So there you have it a few of my recent purchases! What have you all been spending your money on? Have you picked up any bargains in the sales too? I can't wait to hear about them! Thanks for reading!
