Starman

Bilbao is unlike any city I’ve been to, and the Bilbao BBK unlike any festival I’ve experienced. I was amazed at the enormity of it (typical me not doing my research) as I expected it to be a small, traditional town. On the contrary, Bilbao is a bustling hive of activity, with both modern infrastructure and rich cultural heritage to explore. In the days after the festival we stayed in a hostel in the centre of town and tried to cover as much ground as possible to see everything we wanted to.

Shine On

Festival Season is undoubtedly my favourite time of year. I say this every year (because it’s true). It’s the cocktail of friends, music, drinks and (most importantly) funky outfits that gives you a buzz like no other. This is also the only week of the year I will gladly throw myself into embracing the great outdoors, whether it be rain (is it even a festival if it doesn’t rain?) tent malfunctions or ant infestations I’ll take it all because nothing beats that festival feeling.

Lust List: November

Bonfire night is over, which means now it’s basically Christmas. And we all know what the festive period entails… SPARKLE. Yes, the party season is soon to be in full swing so it’s time to get the gladrags out and cover ourselves head to toe in glitter. This month I’ve compiled my list to include some statement looks that will be the centrepiece at any winter party, as well as a few essentials that are on my own Christmas list (lets hope I’ve made it on the nice list this year).

Reading festival lookbook

In true British festival reality this past weekend has consisted of one too many warm lagers and the unforgettable sound of favourite bands, and resulted in a lost voice, worsening headache and serious Reading blues. We kind of forget for a year about all the camping inconveniences (it took Chloe and I almost two hours to figure out how to assemble our broken tent), below average toilet situation and the fearful sight of clouds and threat of mud they bring. But you’ve just got to embrace these minor obstacles (and even learn to love the loos) for five days and throw yourself into the festival spirit.

Lust List: August

While everyone else is out finding Pokemon I’m trying to catch a few slightly different things. August is my birthday month (hint hint) so I’m hoping for some extra pennies to pick up these pieces I’ve been lusting after to keep me going for what’s left of ‘summer’! Reading fest is fast approaching too, so I’m hunting for those last minute buys to get me by.

co-ords

Chic, boisterous and smart all rolled into one. It’s not hard to think of more than one occasion to wear a co-ord and it’s not hard to find a good selection of them online either. Whether you’re all for shorts, trousers or skirts there’s one out there for everyone. My personal fave right now is this Monki skirt and t-shirt combo (click to snap it up from ASOS), and not just because it’s stripy. I love the rusty colour scheme and fresh kinda look it gives off.
