Okay I have been home for nearly two weeks now but I would love to go back to beni!! It was amazing! and now I am super excited about Bestival in September!

Here is a little taster of some of my beni 2012 experiences! I would def' recommend this festival for anyone who hates the mud and rain that comes with a British festival. It was so nice to not have to bring wellies...although the heat is extremely hard work so pack lots of sun-cream.

Top Beni 2012 memories:

1- The pre-beni warm up with the girls at Em's Auntie's Place in Spain. It was the perfect way to ease into the festival...and it meant we all had a lovely tan before the festival started

2- Dancing to The Stone Roses, Bombay Bicycle Club, Noel Gallagher's high flying birds, Chase and Status etc etc etc It was amazing!!!!!

3- The random dj decks and bands that popped up and did surprise gigs in the street! This just wouldn't happen in the UK because of health and safety, noise control blah blah impromptu party is the best!

4- Chilling at the beach and water park every day!!! Soaking up the sun with cocktails, fresh salads and water that wasn't so cold that it made your toes want to fall off  :)

Plus I finally got to go on holiday with the was his first 'hot holiday' in years as usually you can't prise him off of the snowy mountains. 

Such a great time and great memories. Thank god it's sunny in England or else I really couldn't handle being home

Pre-beni warm up...

I can't believe Beni festival 2012 is over already!? 
After 10 scorching days in the sun it is now back to the reality of a not-so-hot British summer boooo.
I started the holiday off at Emily's auntie's villa near Alicante where we chilled, caught some rays and made the most of the pool and electrical fans...btw. this is super luxury compared to a tent at Beni!!

After 5 relaxing days we caught a train from Alicante to Benicassim to start our week long camping 'experience' and the four days of music started on the thursday-sunday.
I met up with the Bf, my sister, Luke and Layla at the train station and they joined the party and beni festival 2012 kicked off with a bang!! 
I wish I was back there already.

More carnage and photos to come...

We're all going on a summer holiday...

Today I finally fly out to Spain for a few days of relaxation and much needed sun. On Monday we will be heading to the festival of dreams (a.k.a benicassim festival) to enjoy the musical delights of Florence and the machine, The Stone Roses and Bob Dylan to name but a few.
 I am super excited to say the least!!

I have spent the morning getting ready, packing my case and generally getting stressed out as I am convinced I have forgotten something?! Mmmm we will soon see.

All packed and ready to go...just hope it's under 15kg?!

Secret skulls...

I picked up this unusual bracelet in my favourite shade of turquoise from a vintage Market recently. On closer look the beads are actually skulls...perfect for toughening up a girly outfit
