Let’s go glamping

glamping collage


We’re almost set for a weekend camping at Camp Bestival. There’s a big pile of stuff gathered ready in my living room {you can see our packing list HERE} I’m definetly more of a glamping girl than a roughing it girl. I love camping BUT I do like a few creature comforts. I decorate our pitch with some bunting and solar powered fairy lights. Duvets for me {I have a pink 70s vintage one that is my favourite to take}, lots of blankets for chilly www.trendingdownward.com/med/ evenings and cushions to make it comfy. A pretty {and practical} rag rug for the front door. Colourful plastic glasses are much cuter than melamine mugs too! Wellies are kind of a festival essential and what better than a pair of Hunter Boots? Plus a pretty, boho backpack to carry essentials around in all day long and dry shampoo to keep you looking fresh as a daisy! How about you – do you like roughing it, or do you prefer your creature comforts?

    What a lovely, colourful collection – I’ve yet to brave camping with the kiddos, but that quilt would certainly be on my list. Love it all!

    I think I’m in love with the whole collection! I’ve been trying to get my other half to go camping however he’s not keen on the idea :(

    It looks like your pitch will be very pretty! I love festivals but I would prefer creature comforts. Have a wonderful time xx

    Definitely comforts for me! Love those plastic glasses, I’m waiting till the end of the summer when places like B&M sell them off for 20p each :)

    I’m with you on the glamping front – the more pretty, comforting things I can take with me (or are provided for me) the better. I want to come camping with you – it sounds like you might just have the prettiest pitch there!

    You’re going to have the nicest tent there! Those rugs remind me of being a student, I had loads, all scattered in my room, so colourful.

    Yup, I’m all about the creature comforts – just a few added touches to make you feel at home but not enough to feel like you can never pack it all ever again.

    Love all the colours and the solar-powered lights in particular. That’s a really good idea. I don’t mind camping, but would prefer to ‘glamp’ it up a bit to make sure my children are comfy.

    I have a think for fairy lights. Even better if they are solar powered. Lovely collection overall.

    I have to agree I love to make our tent feel homely and comfortable. We bring a little rug, lots of blankets and have invested in a good airbed ( have to be able to sleep well) as well as lights and lanterns and a few other bits and bobs from home.

    Can’t wait to read all about your amazing time at Camp bestival – hope it all goes well :)
