Q: I'm going to my first ever music festival this weekend and I have no idea what to bring! Can you share me your list so I won't overpack (because that happens to me all. the. time.)?
A: I totally get what you mean by overpacking! But experience has taught me that lugging around a bag filled with "what if" items is such a pain in the arms (and back, and shoulders, and.. well, you get the picture) and can just ruin your mood. So the key is to streamline your stuff as much as you can by going for travel-size dual-purpose items like a sunblock that doubles as a mist, a scarf that's thick enough to double as a mat, or a cure-all balm for headaches, insect bites, and the like. Also, a lightweight bag is a must! Refer to this cheat sheet below:
My 7107 survival list: Tote bag, Curtis Kulig x LeSportSac; Floppy hat, Ever New; Sunnies, Parfois; Dry shampoo, Etude House; Matte Lip Balm, Revlon; Alcohol Spray, Hygienix; Cooling sun spray, Nivea; Perfume, Philosophy; Tank top, Uniqlo; Scarf, Stradivarius; Wet wipes, Kleenex; Cure-all balm, Human Nature; Battery pack, Mili; Foldable umbrella; Forever 21.
Festivals usually don't allow you to bring food and drinks on the grounds so don't forget to bring enough cash to keep your tummies happy!
See you at 7107 this weekend, ladies!
