Wilderness Festival 2014

This weekend me and my boyfriend decided it was time to escape reality and head to Oxfordshire for the calm and serenity that is Wilderness Festival. For the past 5 days I’ve been living from a tent, not getting enough sleep and using more dry shampoo than I would prefer to admit!

Mulberry at Wilderness

Arguably my highlight of the festival – the iconic British label that so many of us adore set up camp and ran craft workshops over the duration of the weekend featuring the likes of IT girl Cara Delevigne and widely appreciated beauty blogger Tanya Burr! Sessions involved talks on how our favourite handbags go from sketchbook to store, and the chance to make your very own, personalised Mulberry bracelet! Im sure you can appreciate my excitement..

Overall thoughts..

Wilderness festival is a must! With facilities such as the Lakeside Spa, and relaxation therapies from every corner on the globe, a perfect balance between the typical festival buzz we all know and love and a weekend with the girls at Champneys is the only way I can describe it. However, one word of advice I would give is to book activities online in advance to save yourself from dissapointment! Despite being rather pricey, this festival is every bit worth it. With huge ranges of food and drink to try, endless activities to keep you occupied, and live entertainment till the early hours of the morning this festival really does have something for everyone ~ and is every bit as weird and wonderful as anticipated…
