The European Festivals every young woman should go to

Everyone has been to a festival, be it the great muddiness that is Glastonbury, or the glittered up Lovebox. However, it’s only when you leave the UK that the festivals really get good. Exploring a new festival as well as a new city is the perfect way to spend a summer. Here are some of the best ones that should be considered when it comes to the best years of your life with music, crazy people and different cultures.  Continue Reading

The Summer Playlist: 10 beach tracks

Everyone has that song that reminds them of that holiday, or time in their life which is why every trip away should have a soundtrack. So this soundtrack has a mix of those mellow remixes for chilling by the pool with the Kygo remixes and mellow Brits George Ezra and Mumford & Sons, with a hit of pumping tunes to get you dancing on the beach with Flo Rida and Beyonce. So download, lay back and put your headphones on with my 10 tracks for that summer playlist.

#nowplaying: Running Edition

So this Monday I finally got round to sorting out the music on my iPod shuffle, which is perfect for gym sessions and running. I’m always checking out new running playlists (feel free to throw any songs my way) but I struggle to run to some that don’t have the right beat. I either can’t pace my self of end up running in a weird way that gets people staring at me. Continue Reading

#nowplaying: Haim and George Ezra

It’s been a while since I had any new music (I’ve been travelling, didn’t I mention it?) so I may be slightly out of the loop. I’ve downloaded so many albums in bulk so instead have found two that I can’t believe I spent so long without.

Haim. The beautiful three Americans who I’ve actually seen twice live, once supporting Florence and the Machine and once at Glastonbury. Continue Reading

#nowplaying: Katy Perry

When I get stressed, I need a perky, cheesy, disgustingly manufactured top 40 song to cheer me up. And what with planning trips to London (more on that later), sorting last minute travelling to Asia and still in the midst of redecorating my entire house, it’s never been more needed than now. Enter Katy Perry’s new song. Continue Reading

#nowplaying: Ed Sheeran

This beautiful weather is so relaxing to be out in….

….yet I’m stuck in the office for 10 hours a day.

If you’re like me and need some sunny tunes so you can at least pretend it’s summer (even if your air con is so high that you still haven’t dared the flip flops and bare legs) then try this new Ed Sheeran remix I found on Youtube. Continue Reading

5 Reasons To Steward at Glastonbury

Before I say anything about whether it’s worth working at Glastonbury, I will say this: working for Oxfam got me into Glastonbury, as I had missed out on buying the actual tickets and resales so without Oxfam, I wouldn’t have made it to the festival full stop.

However, having done it, I now am so glad I did and would recommend it to anyone and everyone as a way of doing a festival, (and read about my full experience here)
