Cath Kidston sale |  Tie-dying antics | Magpie headdresses
Rooftop sunrise | Peacock! | Larmer Tree Garden stage
Make-shift stall | Me and Guadalupe |  Kendaaaaaal

So I have been away again having a manic few weeks! Started off with one pretty busy weekend at home in Bristol in my wonderful, beautiful, new flat sorting out big-girl-grown-up stuff like bills and all that but also getting my craft on! I had a few orders in including one for five magpie headdresses for some ladies going to Secret Garden Party. I also bought a beautiful new Cath Kidston sewing box, which was definitely a justified purchase as it is very useful and was also in the sale (only £21!!). My flat mate Jess who is a fantastic illustrator (blog & facebook) was making some tie-dye t-shirts and tote bags which has now resulted in a distinct lack of plain white items in my wardrobe. She is selling them along with her prints on her Etsy page. We also went to a party and watched the sunrise on the roof! 

Then I went off to one of my favourite festivals, Larmer Tree Festival, which I wrote about last year. I had a lovely time catching up with old friends and even hanging out with my parents too! We watched comedy, ran amok amongst the peacocks, danced away to Gentleman's Dub Club and played bingo with Ringo's music bingo and sold headdresses.

Straight after that we whizzed up country to the Lake District for Kendal Calling. It was so beautiful and luckily the weather stayed sweet for most of it so we got to see some of the gorgeous countryside on a long walk to a local pub before the festival. The festival was loads of fun as well... definitely less tame than Larmer Tree.

Needless to say I was glad to be back in my own bed on Monday night. Was going to have a little break from festivalling but this weekend I've had last minute plans and I'm off to Cloud Cuckoo Land. Hope you're all having an amazing summer!
