In Review: Electric Fields 17

Would you believe I had never been to a festival before and then I went to two in the space of a week. A few days after Lost Village festival, (whilst still not fully recovered) Lewis and I headed off to Electric Fields festival. Only a 60 minute drive south of Glasgow / Edinburgh and set in the beautiful grounds of Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries, Electric Fields is one of Scotlands biggest growing festivals. 

Thousands of happy Scots flocked to Dumfries for the two day festival and the craic didn’t seem to wilt all weekend. The festival started on the Friday but unfortunately we couldn’t make the first day so Lewis and I arrived on the Saturday at around 1pm. We set up camp, cracked open some dark fruits and people watched some very happy Scottish festival goers that were enjoying the (for once) great weather. Around 10 cans later we headed into the festival (a 1 minute walk from the campsite). Basked in glorious Scottish sunshine was a vintage clothes stalls, fun fair rides, food vans and plenty of stages with music to please everyone. It was so nice to see such a variety of age ranges at EF. Every age seemed to be there and everyone seemed to be absolutely loving life. 

The line up was jam packed with amazing artists, some home grown Scottish and some from further afield but absolutely every taste in music is covered here.  From Frightened rabbit, to Jackmaster, to Fatherson, the options were endless. The one act we had to see was Glass Animals, Lewis has been a long term fan but I barely knew their music at all. We got right to the front of the main stage for Glass Animals and they gave the most amazing performance with front man Dave Bayley jumping down to perform in the middle of the crowd. Which made even me fan girl despite not knowing of the bands existence for very long. 

After watching Glass Animals and still on a high, Lewis and I spent the rest of the day going from stage to stage and taking style spotter images of the most fashionable attendees. We finished off our day like we do most days, by eating pizza and passing out after watching Dizee rascal bring the festival to an amazing close. All in all I’m absolutely delighted to have had the chance to attend Electric Fields, it’s only getting bigger and bigger and it’s fan base seems to be growing even more loyal. Till next year!

Student loan shoppin'

I'm back at uni and officially a third year student, which to be honest is a terrifying thought. The workload has more than doubled but no doubt me and my girls will get through it all somehow. I went to Glasgow today with Lewis, which was surprisingly only my third time there. The shopping in Glasgow is so much better than Edinburgh and I could've spent so much money. Last year I spent so all of my student loan in such a short period of time that I couldn't afford my rent. Trying to be mature this year to avoid that from happening again!

I picked up this jacket from Zara for only £29.99 and these trousers from Topshop for £39.99.

Back to reality







Lost Village is now, sadly, a distant memory. Something about being at Lost Village makes you forget what life was like before, and what life will be like after the festival. It was like we were in our own world, a world full of amazing outfits, house music and expensive food. 

I'm back in Edinburgh, working away and preparing to start third year next week. 
THIRD YEAR.
I honestly feel like I've been in uni for two months and it's been two years. Lost Village was the best way to spend an incredible, but not long enough summer. Goals for this year are to clear my overdraft (good joke) and survive uni. My lovely mama came to visit for a few days when I got back from Lost Village but I was working so much/was so exhausted we barely got any time together.
Luckily I'm planning a massive squad trip to Belfast, bringing the scots to the homeland and letting them experience Limelight for the first time. 

Tomorrow I'll be a guest blogger at Electric Fields festival and it will be my last blow out before uni starts. If you'll be there tomorrow look out for me I'll be style spotting!

Spotted at Lost Village









 

My tribe of absolute legends.

After easily the best weekend of my life I've come back down to Earth with a bang.
I was at Lost Village festival for four days with the best group of people imaginable and had an amazing time. Some of the style there was out of this world so I grabbed some quick snaps of fellow festival goers, enjoy!

Blonde ambition with Charlie Miller



Within two weeks, Charlie Miller have completely transformed my hair from a boring shade of brunette to a white blonde. After just two salon visits I've been transformed by the amazing Hayley at the South St Andrews Street salon and I won't be going back to brunette any time soon. Every salon visit consisted of Smart Bonding to ensure my hair stayed strong and healthy during the bleaching process. Every salon visit also consisted of a gin & tonic, a head massage and an overall luxury experience in one of Scotlands top salons. 







After first having smart bonding done to my brunette locks I went into the salon to start the blonde process with Hayley. I have very thick hair so after applying a crazy amounts of highlights we waited to see how light my hair would go. 

The colour lifted even more than she expected and I walked out of the salon with nearly white blonde hair. I went back yesterday for more smart bonding and to have some final highlights done and the final result can be seen below. I can't recommend the Charlie Miller salons enough, and of course Hayley at South St Andrews Street who having been with them for 9 years is a Charlie Miller veteran. 

With 5 beautiful salons across Edinburgh and experienced technicians you can trust I won't be going anywhere else in future. 

You can book a consultation or appointment with Charlie Miller via the website or check out their Facebook and Instagram pages.
