Wow what a weekend! I would have to say that V-Festival (in Chelmsford,
Essex) really was explosive this year, and I was really fortunate that I could
collaborate with Boots UK to experience this amazing event. Whilst I didn’t camp due to work commitments, I enjoyed Saturday’s line up which included: Jess Glynne, Labrinth, Mark Ronson, Tom Jones, Olly Murs, Sam Smith and many other amazing acts. The weather on Saturday
was absolutely amazing (around 28 degrees)
and I managed to catch one impressive flash tattoo tan mark on my arm (I’d do anything for the festival fashion).
Talking of fashion, I decided to wear something light and airy for the event. I
paired my ripped denim Primark shorts that you have previously seen in my
Primark Haul video (click here to see that), with this gorgeous floaty/slightly
cropped white top from New Look. I also decided to wear my brown Chelsea boots
with my M&Co frilly socks because although it wasn’t exactly ‘welly
weather’, I still wanted to keep to the festival theme. I also accessorized accordingly by wearing this pink flower headband from Claire’s accessories
which cost £9.00 (I know… I felt bad handing that tenner over to the cashier), but I also popped on some flash tattoos from Boohoo to look extra goddess like. Now, I did also buy this Petra Neon Zip Mac from Boohoo too, however, I didn’t get to wear it because it never rained! (but nevertheless it makes a really good coat to wear everyday).

I could honestly run my own Boots store from the amount products that
Boots sent me for the festival (talk about the ultimate the festival survival
package!). What I particularly liked in
this bundle was the Soltan Protect & Moisturise sun spray, Boots Dry Shampoo and the Sleek eye
shadow pallet (and as you can see in the video (click here) it is just so gorgeous). If Boots hadn’t sent me the Soltan Protect & Moisturise sun spray, I honestly think that my poor boyfriend (Joe) would have burnt to a crisp (the boy was
going pink on his back and shoulders in the first half hour). It’s tiny 75ml packaging and easy application (meaning you don’t have run the risk of having greasy hands because you don’t have to rub it in) is just perfectly mobile for this kind of event. Other than falling in love with the Sleek eyeshadow palette, I also like the other makeup that was sent to me. As you can see below, I was sent a gorgeous range of lipsticks, lip liners and eye pencils so I was able to create the perfect festival makeup look (talk about bright colours).

I would have to say that Jess Glynne was my favourite act of the day- her voice is absolutely amazing (and I really do mean off the record amazing!). She got quite emotional on stage during her performance, but if anything this only showed how real she is (the girl really does sing from the heart and you can really tell). My boyfriend particularly liked Fuse ODG because he really does get the crowd going- he’s so fun to watch and his music is so easy to chill to. We also managed to get a go on the this huge swing ride which took us high up in the air to give us an aerial view of the festival. Despite Joe being (not admittedly) being afraid of heights, we were able to see everything in the festival including the really cool Pringle stand where people were playing a ‘Pringle themed’ Twister… err yeah I know cool right.
