Reading & Leeds 2016 | My Recommendations.

In the UK we two MAJOR festivals. Ok, maybe technically it's three. Glastonbury and Reading and Leeds. (Reading and Leeds kinda counts as one though.)

Every August bank holiday weekend sets the scene for the latter. Set over the course of three days the festival is two parts- Reading and Leeds, hence the name. The line up alternates between the two cities (it's not as complicated as it sounds, non-brits!) 

Since it's one of the biggest and most well known music festivals I decided to add to my festival recommendations list.
So let's go!

Review | My Little Box August 2016

Where would we be without best friends?
There'd be cringey mirror selfies, no ridiculous inside jokes, no one to make dumb decisions with, no laughing until you're crying, no one to lean on when life gets tough, and no one to support when adulthood gets real.

Girl Friends. I think we often take those real female friends for granted a lot. August's My Little Box is all about us girls supporting each other, how we work well together and how, when we stand together, can help one another achieve our dreams. Let's celebrate girl power!

Boardmasters 2016 | My Recommendations.

Every August, thousands of people descend onto the UK's surf capital to checkout Boardmasters. Five days of surf, sun, skating and music will take over Cornwall's famous beaches this weekend.

My cousin and I went a few years back, and this summer will be my brother's second time. A festival not to be missed, Boardmasters offers skateboarding, BMX and surfing competitions which are chock full of pros. 
The main music section is at Watergate Bay,and has played host to the likes of Ed Sheeran and Snoop Dog. Whilst Fistral Beach offers the comps and The Beach Sessions, intimate evening gigs right on the beach. 
The surfing comps have recently been added to the World Qualifying Series, so be sure to pay attention on that front. 
The Surf Village on Fistral Beach offers signings with the pros, a market area where you can sample local delights and competitions that you can take part in. (Don't worry they won't get you doing complicated skate tricks -I won a hula hoop competition there) As well as Surf Art, photography and film sessions. 
Add in your very own surf lesson and this is a jam packed weekend that should not be missed. 

I've posted below my recommendations music wise.

Peas In A Pod.

At the weekend my cousin/ best friend/ twin/ pea-in-a-pod came down with her boyfriend.
Jodie and Lewis live in Yorkshire so we only get to see each other once maybe twice a year if we're lucky. So when we do see each other we have to make the most of it. Fun skateboarding adventures, trips to cities, eating our body weight in the most unhealthiest foods we can find and laughing all the time.
My mum calls us peas in a pod because we look like each other, there's only a years age difference and we have a lot in common.
The photos above are from a disposable camera I had almost finished so we took the skateboards and went down the beach for breakfast on their first morning here.

Review | My Little Box July 2016

When summer rolls around, what's the one craze you always see? Easy. Coconuts.
Year after year you smell that gorgeous exotic scent. Whether it's in your sun cream or beauty products, it's undeniably there.
Recently, however, the craze has gone year round. Coconuts are multi-functional. Incredible for your skin, hair, health and even your food.
These tropical guys are versatile and all kinds of glorious. Which is why My Little Box have dedicated a whole box to them.

Warped Tour 2016 | My Recommendations.

Last year I made a list of bands on Warped Tour that I thought you should check out if you were going. (Or not going -you can still check them out!)
This years line up is amazing.
So many incredible bands are playing that it was hard for me to narrow it down to just a few. If you live in America/Canada and you're going to the tour, go see these artists for me whilst I sit at home in miserable England. 

Please Note!
Links to where I found each original photo is underneath my edit. 
(If it is your photo just let me know and I'll change it asap!)
