Guide To Glamping. (I wish)

Glamping is glamorous camping. You may stay in a tent, but the facilities are generally five-star and go way beyond what you would normally expect on a camping trip.

However you dress it up, camping is camping.
I wish I was going glamping (from what I heard it's a lot nicer, warmer and cleaner), but alas, I am going the regular kind of camping; with mud, portaloos, cold showers and a tent with a broken pole*. 

But I am on a mission to make my camping as glamerous as I possibly much as one can in 5 inches of mud, the msot disgusting toilet/shower experience ever to be heard of.

Rule One:
Always look like you've just stepped out of a 5* tent. It's called 'Camping Chic', not 'Look like a drowned rat'
Like this, Millie Mackintosh T4 at the beach.

Not this.

Rule Two:
Be prepared for the weather. Wellies and not a bin bag a nice mac would do.

Not this.

Rule 3:
Go prepared to eat rubbish all week.

This happened to my cooker last year. Gas leaked, I turned it on and it burst into flames. 
I don't recommend it.

Rule four:
The toilets and showers (if there are any) are disgusting; be prepared to gag.

I've been mentally scarred by searching for images of this, I don't recommend it.

Rule five:
Have the time of your life.Tumblr_m52yosphwe1qev349o1_500_large
So that's how I see camping. 
I'm going to work at a festival called Soul Survivor in a cafe , then go on to another one, Momentum, straight after.
Packing is proving tough, it's hard to pack for every type of weather: Sun, rain, mud, cold.. my pile of clothes is getting bigger and bigger!

Whilst I'm away I've got 5 beautiful ladies to guest blog for me..and let me tell you now, the posts are pretty special! So keep an eye out for those over the next 2 weeks!

Have a lovely few weeks :)

Love, Elizabeth
