With a certain famous festival under way right not, Glastonbury, although never a festival I fancied when I was younger regrettably (always more a Holidays in the Sun type of gal) I thought I should take a look those few essentials that you should take. Now music festivals may seem like a catwalk these days but it is ALL about the music. However you want feel pretty rocking so there are a few things that you should try and cram in a tiny backpack and these are those. 

Now I truly believe I've captured the essentials here. The Dr Bronner's magic liquid soap in peppermint can also be used to brush your teeth with and is also a nice treat when rubbed in tired aching muscles after a long day along with giving yourself a quick wash and to wash your hair. However, washing your hair should be low down on the list of priorities so the Bumble & Bumble dry shampoo is perfect, it also doubles up as a volumiser, the Bumble & Bumble surf spray should be used to keep your hair in check with ease - tie back with the daisy bun hair garland - lasts longer than a real daisy chain! 

The Yes to Cucumbers facial towelettes are perfect for removing your make-up, these are my favourite wipes as they are a generous size and very refreshing, they can also double up to give your armpits a freshen. Although it is guaranteed to rain most of the time the sun can still do some damage and it's easy to forget when out all day so the sun cream is the number 1 essential out of this lot. 

On to the tiny amount of make-up you'll need, A foundation is too heavy so this Nip+Fab CC cream covers all bases, It's SPF 30, moisturising complexion fix, what more could you need? Now only a few more items to top up the bag, the Benebalm is a tinted lip balm so gorgeous colour whilst conditioning, and if you want to top it up for a darker shade add a touch of theBalm's Stainiac whilst applying some colour to your cheek. Now there is no point messing about with eyeshadow but if you want a night time look you can use the Stila waterproof eyeliner to create a smoky look before applying a little bit of liner, followed by a good waterproof mascara, Urban Decay's Cannonball does the trick! Now to finish it off, not quite essential but when you're starting to feel a bit gross a touch of perfume does wonders, I love Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh, sadly I haven't found the spray pen in the U.K. but you never know! 

So that is the list of what I'd take. Is there something I'm missing that you wouldn't dare leave without?
