To top off this amazing summer I was lucky enough to be invited back to Bestival this year to show off my sassy festival outfits. Freshly located in it's new home Lulworth castle in beautiful Dorset the journey from London was much more straight forward and quicker!
This years theme was 'The Year of Colour' and we were graced with headliners Dizzee Rascal, A Tribe Called Quest, Rag'N'Bone Man, Danny Brown, The XX, Ray BLK and many more talents.
Now you know I had make the most of my experience so of course I had to opt for glamping as usual. There are a selection of of glamping companies to stay with in the boutique campsite so in light of this years theme 'The Year of Colour' I made a no brainer decision to stay with Podpads. Their range of beautifully coloured accommodation comes in a range of wooden sheds and tipi's to suit various parties and budgets.
Their facilities also include free phone charging, free tea and coffee, dedicated luxury showers, free hair dryers and straighteners in the pamper section, free car parking and more!
If you were keeping up with my Instagram story and Snapchat you would have seen my live video showing you around our gorgeous Luxury Luxpad which came fully decked out with wooden beds, electricity, windows, comfy bedding, pillows and lamps. Now that is what I call the perfect kind of glamping for a Festival Queen! Their staff couldn't have been any friendlier and welcoming throughout my stay.
Are you planning on going to any festivals next summer and want to feel like a festival Queen? Check out what festivals Podpads will be at and treat yourself to a fun and comfy stay in their colourful boutique village. Highly recommend!
As much as I absolutely love festivals the non stop dancing and fun can start to tire anybody out! This is why I made sure to bring my Vivid Matcha green tea sachets to take daily as part of my get up and get ready routine which I showcased on my Instagram story each day. Their sachets were the perfect tasty addition to my festival essentials, all you need to do is add hot water and voila! (I usually add a teaspoon of honey with mine.)
Why not just have a coffee or an energy a drink you ask? Well here's what's so special about Vivid Matcha green tea: It serves as an energy efficient drink made with natural nutrients and antioxidants sourced from Kagoshima in Japan. It's main purpose is to maintain and boost your mental energy, boost your metabolism, keep you in a good mood due to it encouraging the release of serotonin and dopamine in your body. Not forgetting it contains vitamins that are great for your overall wellbeing. Sounds great right? Get yours here.
This year I really wanted to take pride in my Festival Queen status so I decided to team up with talented Calfornia based designer Marisa Nicole who owns RML Designs. RML Designs which stands for 'Rich Mahogany Life' specialise in the craziest custom rave/festival wear. The custom bra's even came fitted with flashing LED lights because you know I just had to be EXTRA AF. Shop their products here.
Bestival you were amazing for my second year in a row (despite the weather), I fully approve of your beautiful new home and I'm already missing being in the field dancing the night away covered in glitter. I'm slightly saddened by the fact that festival season is now official over but I'm already looking forward to doing it all again next year! If you missed out this year I hope you enjoyed watching my daily adventures across my channels.
P.s. Mother nature - next year can you please hold off on the rain? Mud is not sassy and my outfits are. Cheers darling.
Stay Sassy, xoxo
