As I write this, I am indulging in listening to Glasto on BBC iPlayer in the comfort of my home. No mud, no rain, no bum scrum at the bar, no hideous queues for the loos, no waterlogged tent, no panic about running out of loo paper and on and on it goes. What could be better? Well, a lot, actually. I could be there enjoying the electric buzz of the atmosphere, seeing some great artists, acts, comedy, and the mystical magic of the event. The colour, the weird, the wonderful, the fun of being with friends, the sights, smells and sounds and of course perusing some of the wonderful shops. So, this brings me onto mentioning some amazing brands that are part of the ONLINESUMMERFAIR that have goodies for festivals, whether you are doing it from home or for when we can all go to our next festival.
First up, if you are fan of bright and stylish accessories you can’t go wrong with adding a super soft quick drying towel from The Holiday Shop London. They pack up into neat pouches, so as well as using the towel in the showers (if you manage to get to one -I’m still thinking festivals, OK?!), they are also ideal for sitting on, even if the grass is wet, as they dry 3x faster than a standard cotton towel.
Then we have such fun and useful T shirts from St Berts. Made from 100% supersoft jersey cotton coming in four colourways, they are an absolute MUST HAVE this season for anyone who loves a rainbow with a difference. Team that with some super hip hop stylish cowboy wellies (as of course it might rain!) from Talolo Boots. Perfect festival wellies that are fun, cool and come in a range of designs. Now for some jewellery and Ssolo London have some beautiful contemporary pieces. Their fabulous multi coloured knot bracelet with silver beads and made with a drawstring so will fit any wrist size – is just ideal for the festival vibe.
Now, we can’t do a festival without a tipple can we?! Penrhos Spirits – a collaboration of two Herefordshire fruit farmers distil award winning premium Gins, from their fruit. The Penrhos Gin Trio contains three miniature (5cl) bottles from their range which will be a perfect set to sample their flavours with festival friends.
What are we missing – oh, the bag for all our goodies! The colourful Freak Flops have the coolest and brightest flip flops ever seen! And they have matching fabulous drawstring pouches that are hand-crafted in Costa Rica. Made with waterproof material, the pouch features durable drawstrings to keep your items secure. So, ideal for storing your valuables, sunnies, water and sun cream at festivals.
I think we have the ultimate combo here for festivals, but you really do not have to be thinking only festivals to enjoy these wonderful goodies and what’s even better, all the brands mentioned are offering a giveaway of the products mentioned!! For full details, check out our feed on instagram
