Leeds Festival 2015 is officially done and dusted, and I had such an awesome weekend with my BFF by my side. Relentless Energy put us up in a podpad for the weekend – glamping FTW – so we could really enjoy everything the festival had to offer. We had already armed ourselves with sleeping bags, copious amounts of hairspray, enough threads for two weeks, and enough dry shampoo for every festival frolicker in Bramham Park that weekend.
Last week, I headed out to one of my favourite spots in Chester, The Botanist, to celebrate their first birthday. This place has given me so many tasty dinners and cocktails in the past year that I just couldn’t turn down such an invitation – especially when I was told there would be Pimms and cupcakes involved.
Surf for days, burgers for brekkie, and wild dancing while waves crash in the distance. We’re deep into festival season, and I’ve kicked mine off with the gnarliest of the lot – Boardmasters.
Though there are whispers going around that summer is very nearly over, I’m not falling for it. August is the prime summer month in my book, and September has become the UK’s second chance at giving us some decent summer temps. August also just so happens to be the month where I’ll be doing most of my festival rounds, so I’m getting warmed up with a playlist that’s been keeping me on my toes since June, just like the British climes.
