Glasto '14

Well, I really don't know how to put into words just how utterly amazing Glastonbury was. It was without a doubt some of the best five days i've ever had. Bold statement I know. I knew it was going to be fun but really didn't anticipate just how much fun. I've been on a massive comedown ever since I've came home. It all seems like a bit of a blur now! Fingers crossed i'll be going again next year!

We arrived on Wednesday in baking hot sunshine after Hannah and Lily had agreed to let my friend and I gatecrash their camp for the next few days. Unfortunately the beautiful hot weather was not going to stick around for too long and by Thursday the rain started to make an appearance and never really went away. Still it helped me get the authentic Glastonbury experience and I wouldn't have had it any other way.

On the way back to the tent after the awesome Kasabian set I was asked who my highlight of the festival was and for once I was absolutely stumped and struggled to name just one. I'm still struggling to pick just one highlight! But I absolutely loved Kasabian - they just really know how to put on a proper show. I'll always have a soft spot for Tom! Dolly Parton was amazing and she was a joy to watch. Her little anecdotes had me laughing all the way through the set. Vance Joy was also a pleasure to listen too, it was fairly chilled as just what I needed at 12 in the afternoon. I wasn't in the right state of mind for anything too heavy! Kelis was outstanding too - I'd forgotten just how many of her songs I actually knew. Loved having a boogie to Milkshake!

Did any of you lot go to Glastonbury? What was your highlight?

Soap Glory Sit Tight Super-Intense 4D

A few weeks ago now I was invited along to Soap & Glory pamper evening to celebrate the launch of their new product. Let me introduce Sit Tight Super-Intense 4D. Priced at £18, it's designed to to work it's magic while you sit down. Hence the name! It has three metal ball barings which you glide on your problem areas on your bottom half.  Obviously it's not a complete miracle and you can't have perfect firm skin if you continue to binge on junk food but it does help if you eat healthily! It has a slight tingling feeling once it's been applied but this doesn't last forever. It's a strange sensation when you do sit down but it's not too annoying that it will make you uncomfortable. I felt strangely comforted as it meant it was working in my eyes. It'll be a great product to start using a month before your summer holiday.

Although I could only pay a fleeting visit as I was meeting my boyfriend for dinner, I was still able to enjoy a relaxing hand massage. Hand Food is a product that's a staple in my handbag so I made sure I made a beeline for that station. I loved the fact you could move around and try out different activities, such a shame I couldn't stay long enough for the tarot card reading. I've never had it done before!

Thank you very much for the invite Soap & Glory! 

Are you a fan of Soap & Glory?

You know I try to live without regrets

Nude gold capped flats: TK Maxx (similar)
Gold vintage style boyfriend watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs

I had an hour to kill in between shoots while I was in London for work and as I was in my old stomping ground I decided to have a little mooch around Leather Lane Market whilst grabbing a drink. I used to make regular lunchtime trips to this market on my lunchbreak when I worked around the corner. It's a shame it's only on offer during the week but I find the clothing stalls also make the rounds at Petticoat Lane on a Sunday.  It has some cracking food stalls and cafes alongside a few clothing stalls that offer various Topshop/Asos/Dorothy Perkins bits. It was very hit and miss but you never knew what you was going to stumble across and I got some amazing bargains. This day I struck gold and walked away with this black midi as well as the same skirt in baby blue and a mint floral asos midi. All for £30. How could I have said no?

Tomorrow I shall be off to Glasto and keeping my fingers crossed I haven't forgotten anything. I'm so excited to spend a whole week listening to my favourite bands and just generally chilling out without much care in the world apart from what cider i'm going to drink and what food stall to choose. I have a few posts for you scheduled but i'll see you in a week! Hopefully i'll make it back in one piece!
