Get Ready for a Summer of Fun and Festivals!
Are you heading to any festivals this summer? Festivals for families and kids seem to be the “thing” at the moment. Personally I haven’t been to any with b. The thought of camping, in a field, with loads of other kids…Yeah I can’t see it happening!
I used to do the festival thing when I was younger. Mainly Reading festival when the music was a bit heavier. I guess as I’ve gotten older, the novelty of camping and not washing for 4 days has worn off.
Festivals on our Doorstep!
We are actually really lucky to live in Weston-super-Mare because during the summer months, the beach lawns boast so many, typically free, festivals and events. We had the air show in June and this month we have the Real Ale Festival. This weekend we enjoyed the Dairy festival (see our pics from last year!) and there are loads more things coming up too. Basically there is so much going on for families here!
Let’s get in the festival spirit!
To get us in the festival spirit, I’m featuring some of my favourite festival bits which you can pick up in Home Bargains right now. They have a great selection of festival essentials and really good prices. You can’t go wrong really.
Regardless of a one day festival or a full weekend, it’s great to keep a few things fresh for as long as possible! These super cute cool bags are ideal for packing up your first day essentials.
Pop a few cool blocks in and you’re ready to go! We took a picnic to the Dairy festival in this one and it worked really well. It was a good size to get everything we needed in.
I am loving these cute unicorn drink cups too!
Who doesn’t enjoy a drink or few while chilling out to some tunes. Be sure to pack a cute hip flask with your favourite tipple and something a little sweeter as the sun goes down/rain pours down! These Sour Apple shots are perfect for popping in your handbag or rucksack!
These colourful unicorn themed cups are fab as well. Perfect for an ice slushie if the weather improves.
Refresh and Dress
Festivals equal wellies right? You’d be mad not to pack a pair. And mad not to pack some snuggly welly socks. Perfect for extra comfort while traipsing around fields all day. These handy face and body wipes are ideal too if you don’t fancy queuing for the showers.
Home Bargains have loads of bits and bobs to help you get festival-ready! I am loving this glitter gel which can be used on your skin and hair. It’s super pretty and even b liked popping it on!
The hair mascara is really fun and easy to apply. It washes out easily too.
Don’t forget to pick up a cute little bag to stash all your essentials in. These colourful bags are ideal.
Are you going to any festivals this summer? We plan to do day ones for now. And especially with the hubby’s recent achilles injury, I don’t think we’d get too far!
