What’s in my festival bag?

Having posted last weekend about my trip to Parklife festival, and Glastonbury kicking off this Wednesday, I decided to do a post on my festival bag essentials designed to see me through the weekend. I first started going to festivals in 2010 when I visited the holy grail that is Glastonbury for the first time. It was an absolute game changer and now spending a weekend (or two) each summer in a massive field, with a can of warm cider and singing my little drunken heart out is a must. Over the past few years I have racked up visits to V Festival, Download and next month we shall be visiting T in the Park for the first time and these are just a couple of the essentials I need to see me through the weekend! First up, the bag. I always opt for an across the body bag with a zip and a couple of pockets. Easy to store everything away and you still have your arms free to dance away into the night. Green …

Argan Dew Hair Oil: Review

It’s been a while since I dipped my toe in the beauty blogging while, but a few weeks ago I got chatting to Argan Dew on Twitter about their products and I was really intrigued.

Having tried L’Oreal, Tresemme and Macadamia Oil, I had high hopes for Argan Dew! I was very kindly sent the Replenshing Hair Mask and Miraculous Argan Oil to try. Using the oil of the argan nut it helps prevent skin and hair damage and designed to leave it silky and more manageable that ever. Sounds perfect right? Firstly I tried to replenishing hair mask which is designed to dry, damaged and coloureed hair… so that’s me down to a tee! I just massaged it into my hair once I had washed and conditioned with …

Parklife Festival: My return to blogging…

Once again, long time no blog. This year I keep falling in and out of love with blogging, but after a few months away I have started to miss it. I stopped reading blogs daily too after feeling quite dis-connected with it all and the ‘community’ but I’m determined to turn that around starting now.  I’ve got a great couple of posts planned and having read a couple of different bloggers posts focusing on blogging and life in general from Kat at KatherineLouise, Lily over at LlyMlrs and Victoria at VIPXO to name but a few, I’m back in the game! So enough of that for today and let’s get on with today’s post. First and foremost I am a lifestyle blogger and festival posts have been my bread and butter since I started fresh out of uni in the summer of 2010. And this year I plan to be back with a vengeance! Having already ticked off Arctic Monkeys at Finsbury Park last month and signalling the start of summer, last weekend I headed to …
