The BEST Festival - BESTIVAL

If you haven't heard of Bestival... where have you been?! This year was the 10 year anniversary and one of the best line ups yet!
If you've read my blog before then you know that I actually live on the Isle Of Wight (where Bestival is held) so obviously each year me & all my friends get seriously excited as soon as September begins! 
This year, firstly, I need to say a HUGE thank you to Schuh, who, on twitter, randomly found me and GAVE me and one of my best friends a ticket each for no reason at all and just as "a random act of kindness" - I am still in shock, made my year.
Bestival is a fancy dress festival and on the Saturday thousands and thousands of people dress up to the theme - this years theme was HMS Bestival and not only did everyone get involved and look amazing but there was an actual ship on site which was turned into a stage!

My weekend was amazing , highlights included -me and my friends all dressing up as fish in green sequin dresses, one of my best friends surprising us by coming home from her season in Greece early to party with us (an amazing reunion), a motorbike stunt sh0w called the Wall Of Death and watching Elton John live!
Here's a few photos I took over the weekend .....
