#boohooDIY | Times are hard for dreamers


A couple of weeks ago, Boohoo got in touch with me and a whole load of other bloggers to be involved in their #boohooDIY festival project. I jumped at the chance - any excuse to use glitter glue and I'm all ears!

I customised my t-shirt with the glitter glue, though the festival pack came with an assortment of gems and studs too so I have lots more to experiment with in the future! I wanted to create an individual design that would mean something to me, so I was inspired by one of my favourite films, Amelie, and the quote "Les temps sont durs pour les reveurs" which means "times are hard for dreamers".

I'm not doing any festivals this year down to a lack of pennies, but in my Glasto and Latitude experience, festival-wear has been all about layering. As long as you've got appropriate shoes and a good waterproof coat, you're good to go. Add to that a can of Batiste, copious amounts of cider and suncream, and you're onto a winner!
