There’s no Glastonbury this year, and I am FUMIN’! There’s still plenty of festival fun to be had all summer long though, so let’s have a look at your festival essentials.
Festival season is getting into full swing. There’s still everything to look forward to. We’ve already had Sound City right here in Liverpool, and there are so many more to come.
So if you’re hitting V Festival, LIMF or Creamfields, listen up. If you’re heading on south for Bestival, down to Latitude or The Great Escape or maybe you’ll be rocking out at Download, or getting your groove on at Lovebox this summer. Or even if Parklife or Festival No. 6 are your scene… then this one is for you. P.S. where did you get the money for all these tickets!?
Never mind, whatever the one you’re heading to, I’ve got all the festival essentials you’ll ever need! Maybe even some extras….
1. Light Up Body Jewels
Swear down, am not even messin’, this is a UK exclusive for the Scouse Bird Shop! Eek!
If you want to stand out a mile at this summer’s hottest events, body jewellery is the one for you. But why not go just that little bit extra and go light up!
I know, they’re just too exciting for words. Check out those body jewels for your face or chest. The centrepiece contains a flashing LED, with a battery that lasts over 9 hours. They flash slowly and then speed up. It will flash slowly, speed up and slow back down again, making sure nobody can miss the Princess of the Fest.
2. Festival Body Jewels
If that’s just a little bit too extra even for you, there’s no need to go overboard. The Scouse Bird Shop has LOADS of body jewellery choices from the boss Festival Faces Group.
Whether you want some cool hippie hand jewelry or you’re going full-on glitter tits, you’ll look amazing! Simply apply these plastic gems to your face, hands and chest for maximum impact – they’re firmly cemented as one fo the 2018 festival essentials.
There are a choice of designs and colours to enjoy in each set, so play around with your look this festival season!
It’s GOT to be sunny for at least a bit of the summer! But even if it’s not, you know I can’t live without my sunglasses.
When it comes to festival sunglasses, the bigger the better. So the oversized sunglasses available in the Scouse Bird Shop will look spot on!
4. Bracelet Hip Flask
“You can’t take drinks into the arena? Are you messin’?” said every Scouse bird to a festival security guard at one point in her life.
Swerve you and your mates having to down an entire bottle of vodka at the festival entrance, by sneaking in drinks the classy way. This chunky looking Bracelet Hip Flask can hold 100ml of spirits and comes in a variety of gorgeous colours. Mirror black, iridescent rainbow or rose gold (of course), slip on this bangle and enjoy vodka and cokes all day!
5. Unicorn Hip Flask
Of course, I always encourage responsible drinking. But when you’re at a festival, you have to let your hair down!
What better way to do it than with this mythical, intergalactic unicorn hip flask? Trust me, unicorns are everywhere right now, so it won’t just be your booze getting admiring looks from the festival crowd.
6. Drawstring Makeup Bag
A pure lifesaver when it comes not just to festivals, but travelling anywhere.
This drawstring makeup bag will hold every cosmetic item you need on a long weekend. The whole thing folds out into a mat, then when you’re done, gathers everything together to fit in your case! It’s completely waterproof too, so ideal for tent life!
7. LED Compact Handbag Mirror
What’s the number one thing you need to pack? A makeup mirror. Trust me, in the middle of a field, any reflective surface is a blessing!
Make sure you don’t look like a greasy haired show, whatever time of day or night it is. This thing lights up, baby!
8. Liverpool Skyline Umbrella
Because let’s face it, if you’re going to a festival this summer, it will rain at some point. Bennicasim? Doesn’t matter, it’s gonna rain. Primavera Sound? Barcelona’s first rain storm in living memory. Fusion Festival on Otterspool Promenade? Deffo gonna rain.
Remind everyone you come from the home of grey skies, the north west of England. Whip out the scousest brolly ever made! Leave it to the Scouse bird to come prepared!
9. Scouse Bird Hoodie
When the sun goes down at a festival, the fun is just getting started. You need to stay up until the early hours at those raves and campsite parties so that’s why a hoodie is one of our festival essentials.
Stay warm, feel good and look great while you’re doing it, with a Scouse Bird hoodie! They’re available in sizes XS to 3XL Curve, and in pull-on and zip-up styles. So whether you’re petite or curvy, you’ll LOVE a Scouse Bird hoodie.
10. Scouse Bird Tote Bag
If there’s one thing a festival veteran can tell you, it’s that you need a lot of crap.
Spending all day at the arena? Hope you packed your water, sun cream, sunglasses, hoodie for when it gets cold, purse… etc! Well now you can bundle it all up in your loud, proud Scouse Bird tote bag! Essential at just £3.79!
Make sure you let me know which festivals you’ll be getting on down to this summer! If you take any of my items with you, remember to take a photo and tag me!
