Festival Fever

Summers nearly here and everybody's talking about which festivals they're going to be attending, except little old me. I havent been to one since 2008 - shame on me, and I was doing so well at rocking out at Download Festival for 5 years on the trot. Then uni happened and being on a fashion design degree doesn't leave much pounds in your pocket, combine that with rent and my u̶n̶n̶e̶c̶e̶s̶s̶a̶r̶y̶  completely necessary addiction for buying clothes and I was practically on my arse (no exaggeration!).

It was only today on the drive home from work with the sun blazing through my car windows that I thought why aren't I going to a festival this year? I mean this is the girl that bought 3 kimonos in one day yesterday, its like I've already told myself to start preparing my wardrobe! Plus I am all about the music, festivals are pretty much my natural habitat. I love the atmosphere, the fashion, the buzz and the all together out doorsy feel of everything. Its amazing how for a few days you are all joined together living this amazing experience. 

This trail of thought got me thinking, I never really do anything anymore. I mean sure I socialise, go out for nice meals with my boyfriend and visit the beach etc.. but I don't do anything big. It made me sad when I realised this, life is so short and there are too many opportunities out there to just sit back and watch the world go by. I don't want to be the person reading about everyone else's wonderful experiences anymore, I wan't to be the one experiencing them. So this has prompted me to "get out there" more and try out some new things! Unfortunately to do this I will need to put a spending ban in place (I'll let you know how this goes) and save save save! (I spent way to much money in H&M & New Look yesterday - woops!).

Below are a few images I found on pinterest, tumblr and weheartit that I found inspiring in a bid to kick start my new "get out there" plan! Wish me luck!
