LOST VILLAGE FESTIVAL

Festival season is in full swing, and I couldn't be happier! I really am at my happiest when I know i've got a festival to look forward to. I recently attended my first camping festival of the year with my Confetti Crowd gals, deep in the middle of nowhere in Lincolnshire, at a pretty new festival called Lost Village. It was only its third year running which meant it was super small, only about 5000 people, which I loved! It meant nothing was far away, it was so easy to find your friends, the music didn't stay on tooooo late (i'm the kinda gal who NEEDS my sleep), and the general vibe was just really chill and fun.

We were invited along with Illamasqua, to coincide with their new Hypnotica collection and "The Paint Den", their funky, colourful and creative tent painting people's faces daily for £10 a pop. We luckily got our make-up did every morning - glitter and rainbow eyes all round! Check out the new collection here.

There were stages and bars dotted all around the woods (all with literally no queues which was FAB - one thing I hate about festivals is queues!) and I loved the spooky "lost" vibe the woods gave it.

The lovely guys at Regatta Outdoors kitted us out for many years to come, with the BEST tent i've ever slept in! Never have I ever slept so comfortably at a festival, which is usually something I struggle with. I didn't expect it to be so big, but it's absolutely the perfect size for a group of up to 6. It has 2 big bedrooms and a middle section more than big enough to stand up in.

I made the mistake a couple years back of taking a pop up tent to a festival - and I have never been so cold or slept so uncomfortably in my life, so it really does pay off to invest in a good tent (even cheaper between a group of you). If you're wondering, It's the Regatta Atlin 6-Man Tent - all 4 of us would recommend it as the perfect festival tent!

One thing I will say about Lost Village, and i'm rarely one to complain, but this didn't exactly get our weekend off to a good start. After a 5 hour drive sitting in traffic the whole way up the motorway, we were faced with a 2 hour queue not for the festival, for a bloody coach. To then take us on a 15 minute drive, to go LITERALLY across the road (one way roads meant we had to drive pretty much round the entire county), but they wouldn't let us walk. The car park field was NEXT DOOR to the entrance, but we still weren't allowed to walk. So so so annoying - especially since it's such a small festival, you just don't expect queues. Then of course we had to queue again to get searched and get through the gates. We didn't end up setting up camp til like 7pm - we left my house at noon!

If you want me back next year Lost Village, you better sort this issue out... NOT COOL!

Otherwise, a fabulous weekend. Thanks Illamasqua!
The gang!

The watch is also an AMG, of sorts: the Ingenieur Automatic AMG Black Series Ceramic, introduced in 2013 in honor of Rolex watches Replica’s sponsorship of the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula 1 team.We spend the morning shooting photos of the Breitling Watches Replica?in and around the parked roadster, so we have time to scrutinize all the Omega Watches Replica ’s details.

That number Replica Watches raised eyebrows, since Omega Replica’s “Other Products” division — Replica handbags which includes Omega Replica Watch, Omega Replica TV, Beats Electronics, iPod, and Replica watches UK other accessories — only reported $2.64 billion in revenues last quarter. That was only a $952 million handbag replica increase from the previous quarter. This means that either sales of Omega Replica TV, Beats products, Rolex Daytona and the iPod plunged last quarter.
