L I F E S T Y L E - / / C A M P B E S T I V A L ! ! !


I'm heading off in an exciting direction! I've recently applied to cover Camp Bestival as a Blogger/Photographer.

I was just simply looking through festivals with my boyfriend on google to decide which ones we'd try to go to this summer, when I stumbled upon Camp Bestival I knew it was the perfect one for me this year!

First off, It's based around Space! I just completed an Astrobiology course with Harvard University online, and I've been obsessed with the mystery of it all for as long as I can remember.  

but onto more important aspects,


Camp Bestival 2016 is located at Lulworth Castle in Dorset, A beautiful historical site on the coast in the South West of England (Also has an amazing Jerrasic Coast line, I love fossils aswell as space so BONUS POINTS THERE!)

Another big factor to why I'm choosing Camp Bestival is that it decicates a large area of it's festival site to Children! Now, I'm a very hands on dedicated aunty to my favourite three little bambinos (aged 3/7/9) and I'm always looking for something new to do with them, I don't plan on taking them them all this time around.. probably just the eldest child, but thats because 3 kids are hardwork for 1 aunty in a new place! specially the little boys!

The site has plenty of activities, including Upper Kids Garden, which offers young children the chance to explore and go on an adventure! They can also learn new circus skills, ride bikes and go-carts and just enjoy themselves!
Additionally, they also offer a toddler area - which will feature a Space Centre! (Sold! TAKE ME TAKE ME!) PS - It's also holds a Breastival Mother and baby chill out zone. Perfect for mums on the go!



MUSIC

I'm a massive sucker for the oldies! So when I saw Tears for Fears and Bananarama were headlining acts I wanted to take a closer look. The mixture between old and new is just right, with Jess Glynne and Katy B joining the line up. Not forgetting the classic Fatboy Slim too!

There isn't one act that I wouldn't like my bambinos to listen too, which also makes a big difference with the language used in the charts today. 


Head over to http://www.campbestival.net/ for more details, including news/updates and ticket prices.

and I'll hopefully see you all there!

T R A V E L - / / P H O T O S F R O M L A P L A G N E - 2 0 1 6

Not long got back from La Plagne in France, and first things first, IT WAS AMAZING!
I pretty much feel like a novice, I've been snowboarding 4 years in a row before my trip to La Plagne, and as much as I love Bansko; It really is a different ball game!

As you can see, I didn't actually take that many pictures on the trip, because for once I was actually able to snowboard the whole time! 

We flew via Crystal Ski, which is a package holiday site here in the UK, which you know, is mean't to make your booking experience easier and cuts out the middle man. Well, it didn't.. it was very stressful, making us change from Tignes to La Plagne 2 days before we left... but that's for another post.

We did have a wonderful upgrade and I will loved it!

P H O T O G R A P H Y - / / E N G A G E M E N T - (HEATHER&OWAIN)

On Valentines day this year I spent it doing something a little bit different, instead of heading out for food or having a cute, cwtchy movie day in bed I happily headed down to Cardiff Bay to photograph my cousin Heather and her wonderful partner Owain to celebrate their engagement!

These two are made for each other, they're so in love it's adorable :D

We shot in a few locations over the Bay area, before it got a little too dark and we had to head into the arcade and play a game of Mario Kart! 
I can't wait to see what their amazing wedding is going to be like! This shoot was lots of fun for all of us, it was my first ever engagement shoot and their first shoot as a couple.. I just wish we had more time!

E V E N T S - / / C O M M O N P E O P L E



I first found out about Common People while applying to work at Bestival, It's brought to you by the same organisers of Bestival so it has to be good right?
It all was a little hush hush at first, with no information in regards to the event online at all... But I thought I'd check it back out now that I've settled into my new job and WOW am I so happy I did.


First off, DURAN DURAN ARE HEADLINING! If that doesn't get your heart racing I don't know what would! Duran Duran are my dream come true, with 7 UK top 10 albums and number 1's including Rio and Girls on film!

Well, I know what else could, probably some of the other amazing acts hitting the stage including Katy B and Primal Scream.

Here's a graphic of the full line up!!


It's one not to be missed guys! For all your booking needs head over to http://commonpeople.net/ to ensure you get tickets!!
