With festival season just around the corner, we want to remind you not to forget to your Hammamas. With their clever cotton status, you will find them so useful. Fast drying, super absorbent, super compact and lightweight. You can use them as an extra blanket, a cover up, to sit on and to dry off. You can even pick the perfect colour to go with your outfits!
We also have some other top tips for managing to survive the festival season and still manage to look fresh as a daisy. Starting from the top.
Toilet roll – of course! You cannot really take enough! Carry one around in your bag everywhere you go.
Invest in some good face wipes – don’t just pick up a pack of cheap baby wipes, they are just going to make your face feel worse. We like these Bioderma ones.
If you’re going to a UK festival then you would be mad not to take a pair of wellies. No matter what the weather forecast says – pack a pair anyway. These ones by Hunter are a good mix of fashion and practicality.
If you can manage to take an airbed with you to the festival, it will be the best thing you ever did, just don’t forget the pump!
Its annoying when you have your festival outfits all sorted but then end up having to wear a plastic sheet over the top that you paid way too much money for. Go prepared. We like the see-through options, so your festival outfit is not completely wasted. This one is by Hunter and is available from ASOS.
If you don’t manage to wash your hair at the festival, then make sure you take a decent scarf and loads of Kirby grips to keep the greasy mop disguised as a stylish fashion look. Scarf, Liberty.
If all else fails, an orange lipstick really brightens any skin tone and looks great against a grey sky! We love this Stila one.
If you do want to sleep at some point. Earplugs and an eye masks are essential.
Leave your designer sunglasses at home and find a cheaper and more fun pair that you don’t mind losing. These ones are from Topshop.
If the sun does shine, these Superga Flatforms are perfect for giving you a big of extra height meaning you might stand more of a chance of seeing and not just hearing your favourite band!
Glitter, sequins, sparkle, still festival essentials and great for covering tired eyes. We love Dust and Dance.
Last but not least, don’t foret your trusty Hammamas, for drying off, extra warmth and sitting on.
