I am officially on holiday, I can’t believe it! So tomorrow, very early we are off glamping this week. The weather is beyond perfect for it and we are going to be setting up camp with two other families, all of which have little ones that are roughly the same age as ours – TGFT!
Yesterday morning I began packing for our little sojourn and I was amazed to discover how many summer glamping trip appropriate outfits I have! So happy with the surplus ensembles piling up that I now have to edit my capsule glamping wardrobe down to a manageable size. Maybe I should just bring them all, they don’t take up much space.

I hope you have a great week and I’ll see you on the other side!
love & light xx
The Wilderness Festival which takes place in the beautiful English countryside of Oxfordshire at the height of summer is exactly where I would like to be right now. This festival is a celebration of the arts and outdoors and encourages people of all ages, especially children, so it was immediately appealing to me. The event mixes together music, food, theatre and literature and is set amongst beautiful forests and is definitely something more than your usual bands and beer tents. There is plenty of glamping, kiddie dedicated fun, wood-fired hot tubs, a spa and a lake to swim in. Oh how I wish I could click my heels together and be there right now!

It’s late August and Spring has already shown her face here as I’ve packed away my boots and dusted off my sandals. The days are getting longer and the sun is warming up! I’ve just set myself a new goal for the Summer, which is to find a festival like this one and to take myself, hubby and our girls for some Summer festival fun! I really love the idea of dressing up in the manner of Fantastic Mr Fox too. xx
Glamping. It is a strange sounding word which essentially means the joining of both glamour + camping.
Glamping is camping for those unwilling to forgo life’s little luxuries when roughing it.
Glamping is the way to camp and according to Vogue magazine, Camp Kerala at the UK’s Glastonbury festival is where Glamping can be found in all its glory.
My family and I are going camping during the summer holidays, just after the New Year. We will be heading to a beachside camping area with another family and to be honest, I cannot wait to go. The idea of living rough with no housework, no timetable, no schedule, hooray! Sun-kissed skin, salt-water spray in my hair, lip balm, sun hats and living in my togs is my idea of heaven. At least it will be for about seven days.
I am definitely going to be getting one of these beach shades from Hollie & Harrie before we go. Isn’t it just too gorgeous?
Glamping. It reminds me of Meryl Streep and Robert Redford in Out of Africa. They really new how to set up camp back then, didn’t they? And while there are companies out there bringing the old-school safari style tents back, with stripes and tassels, there are some designers looking well ahead into the future and are designing tents like this concept tent from French designer Pierre Stephane Dumas.
