I used to be a big festival go-er but in recent years I haven’t really been to very many, so I was excited when an invite to Wireless landed in my inbox. The fine folks at Birchbox decided to take a handful of bloggers for a VIP day out, how on earth could I say no to that, especially when I saw Jay Z was headlining? We were primped and preened beforehand in the KMS salon and had our hair and makeup done using products that have been in previous boxes, like KMS, Color Club, Twistband, The Balm and Coola.
Once we were festival ready we headed over to the Olympic Village to soak up the sun and enjoy the music. I had an amazing time – Jay Z was just as good as he was last year on the Watch The Throne tour and I really enjoyed myself. I had less than two hours sleep the night before as I drove down to London overnight after trying to find a house, and I honestly don’t know how I was still standing by the end of the day but I give a lot of credit to good company and the healer of all things, PIMMS!
I’d definitely recommend Wireless to anyone wanting to dip their toe into festivals, it has all the good sides of a festival but no camping if you’re new to these things, and there was a great atmosphere!
Huge thanks to Birchbox and Pure PR for a fantastic day.
