Summer festival essentials
Summer is on its way and more importantly that means festival season is almost here! As any seasoned festivalgoer will know, the fun of camping with your friends is often just as memorable as the line-up, but the trick to making sure you have the best time is making sure you have the right camping gadgets, attire, accessories and equipment.
With this in mind, here is a look at 3 festival essentials.
You can often get through an entire festival with two essential footwear items. For wet and muddy conditions, be sure to pack your wellies, available in a range of fun bright patterns or the classic hunter green.
However when the sun comes out, don’t be tempted to put on gladiator sandals or flip-flops, as they simply won’t endure the mosh pit conditions (or the long hours of walking between stages). Instead opt for a comfortable pair of converse, the classic rock star footwear of choice.
Forget the layers of makeup and false eye lashes – you will feel dreadful by the end of day one, let alone the end of the weekend! Your essential festival cosmetics are different from your average night out, so trade your foundation for some tinted moisturiser with sunscreen to avoid a peeling and a sunburnt nose.
Pack plenty of wet-wipes to clean up after a day in the mud and dust and of course don’t forget to pack your deodorant. Most importantly, don’t forget every festival-goer’s secret weapon! Dry shampoo is a must-have that will keep your hair dry and grease free the entire time.
Camping like kings
The more camping equipment you pack, the more you will have to carry to and from the campsite. But the effort almost always pays off, creating a more comfortable and often more affordable festival experience.
Portable stoves with a grill and a hob can save you a small fortune at the over-priced burger van. A blow up mattress will make for a much more comfortable sleeping experience and can also be dragged out to act as a seat for a few people around the camp fire during the evening.
I would really like to give a big hug to myself for finally finishing my 6th term Final Exam successfully. The last and also the toughest exam, that required a lot of effort, money, time and vice versa, was finished yesterday..
I lacked of sleep, eat, and money because of this one lol
To be honest I was a little afraid since I thought that it's not the best I could give, although I kinda abandon my blog for my final exam, but i couldn't abandon my job which required me to still go for meetings with some clients for future projects and such.. So it's very tough time for me
Even when some of my friends LINE-ed me and asked for chat, I was like, no no later, I had to stay up late to finish this and that but I am very very glad that it's over and I have holidays until mid of August yeah!!!
I havent received all the results, but I was very happy because the last & toughest exam's result was revealed in the end of exam since it's basically displaying the projects that I had been working on. For those of you who don't know, I am in Design Faculty, focusing on the Advertising Area..
I got A, and I am very happy since it takes the most points for my final score [ 6 SKS of 18 SKS ] So I feel that my hard work is paid off.. All is good~
Next term I am on my last year university [7th term] and about to do internship.. Thanks to my blog I have made some good connections for advertising agency in Jakarta where I could apply the internship for [since most of them has worked with me for blogging stuff lol] So I am still picking which agency I wanna apply haha..
I cant believe that I will be only left 1 year to reach adulthood. Means I will be very independent later.. I will enter the society and I want to contribute to this country, which I hope I wont mess up...~
Anyway, I also would like to hug everyone, to apologize for abandoning my blog for my final exam. I, do not want to repeat haha..
Important things in my life by order are =
Job --> Study --> Personal Stuffs
That's why I rarely have fun LOL
I am really wondering how I survive my hectic schedule haha
But since I finish exams and have holidays, I will be blogging more!!! I have a lot to share, I want to make more tutorials, and I would like to give more product reviews!!
Also, this end of July, I will be going to Bangkok with my university friends, since we never really go out together, and this is our last year as next year we wont have time to be in holiday
I have to pay for my mom's ticket & expenses, since we all need guardian [all of them are females, so their parents are quite anxious if there's no elder as the guard] So bye bye money. Bangkok for 2 persons can in fact bring me to Japan again haha!
But make my mom happy, and be happy with my friends, so all is good too
This summer will be very busy I think haha.. I still have no idea what to do in holiday, but I am sure I will spend some days just to lazy around and sleep to pay back what my body needs haha
How about you guys??
