MY MILKSHAKE BRINGS ALL THE BOYS TO THE YARD...
At the ripe old age of 24, i finally went to my first ever festival, who have thought it? Although if festivals with gourmet Mac n' Cheese and jugs of Pimms are anything to go by, then On Blackheath is definitely the festival for me. This was definitely not the muddy affair i had associated festivals with, but rather a very enjoyable and relaxed day, but not quite knowing what to expect, i Pinterested 'Festival Fashion' in a desperate bid to find what on earth i would wear as On Blackheath is a day festival, so it would have to be comfortable enough for me to be able to trek all the way back to Zone 6 in. You can't go wrong with a leather jacket, because they go with practically everything and they're super cosy, but i wanted to feel more…. Festival-y, like the free spirited-indie-boho girls you see on tumblr. Unfortunately i can't quite pull that look off, so in true Sade fashion i kept it practical with my trusty dusty Dr Martens, Some comfy jeans, a fringed kimono and a black tee. And naturally i had to top off the look with some glitter face paint because Kelis was playing and i wanted to do her proud haha!
PIMMS ANYONE?Aside from being brought to tears by Laura Mvula's voice when she sung 'Sing To The Moon', and shaking my boobs along to Kelis' jazzed up version of 'Milkshake' I think my favourite thing about On Blackheath was the very relaxed family atmosphere, it was so chill and my sister and i spent a good part of the day eating from all the stalls (Our faves were Churros Garcia and Anna Mae's Mac n' Cheese) and having a few cheeky drinks. There were lots of things to do from watching cookery demo's to hula hooping lessons to watching a very tall scottsman chase his weeing dog (don't ask!). There were also lots of freebies on site too for those of you as skint as i am.
