Oxygen 2011.. Our Essentials..

With Oxegen approaching fast , it's time to look at what essentials we are going to be packing for our weekend of fun.
Obviously things like , toilet paper , sun screen, face wipes, dry shampoo etc should be topping our list, we however, are more interested in other more pressing matters.
So here's our guide to having a fabulous weekend!
1. Sequins: Perfect for Bootay shaking , and with Miss B headlining Sunday night, Lord knows we'll be doing our fair share of that. There is nothing better than grunged up glitter so throw on a pair of sequined shorts with a raggy old tee, or a spangly jacket with denim shorts and a pair of wellies and you are set!

2. UV Paint : If there's one place that you can let loose and look ridiculous, it's a festival. So release the inner Play School Kid and cover yourself , and your mates in Glowy-goodness UV Paint then head over to the Naked and Famous for a boogie! Always bring extra paint with you , to share the love and make lot's of paint covered friends along the way.

3. A Camera! : There is nothing , and I mean , nothing more important than a camera at a festival. The memories made and lost at a festival can be captured and kept forever to relive, or bribe or to giggle at for months after. Make sure that you stock up on batteries as not to miss a second or to avail of the phone charging areas for you smart phone junkies!

4. LASHES LASHES AND MORE LASHES! : There are times to be subtle, and well, there are festivals, which we all know is not the time for that. So , even though applying lashes ain't the most practical of things to do in a muddy field, it'll make you pretty and look less like a hobo on day 3!

5.Sunnies - the more the merrier I say. They are an essential accessory that can finish off a festival outfit. Sun or no sun!

5. Our A|Wear Festival Fashion favourites..
