My 12 Essentials for a Festival Weekend
Alright, who else can’t wait for festival season to start already?!
Incase you didn’t know, I’ll be heading out to Indio tomorrow for Coachella and am so excited for the weekend to begin. Timmy will be with Sonny while I’m gone, so I’ll be off mom-duty for a little to enjoy some music and the desert sun with my sister. I’m really excited to see Kygo, Chromeo, Haim, and so many more amazing artists.
Of course though, I also can’t wait to get my festival fashion game on (to look at some of my past looks, click here)!
Aside from packing the right outfits for the weekend, there are also few essentials I always carry along with me in my bag to help me look and feel my best when I’m on the fields. It’s always a little tempting to stuff as much as I can in my bag, but the extra weight is totally unnecessary and can just be a pain. Now after years now of going to Coachella, I’ve figured out the key items (beauty and basics included) that’ll help you be prepared and look good as you embark on your music retreat!
If you’re struggling on what to bring, I’ve got you covered. Keep scrolling to find out what I’m taking with me on my festival journey this year!
When you’re dancing all day in the 100 degree heat, it’s hard to keep smelling your best. I love these wipes because they fit perfectly in my bag and prevent odor a without leaving any chalky mess behind.
Of course, fresh breath is always important. I recently tried out Extra’s Chewy Mints and they’re the perfect pack to help you feel refreshed and smelling minty fresh when you’re out for the whole day.
While running around and doing all festival things to the fullest, it’s hard to not build up some sweat. To make sure my hair stays clean and styled, I always make sure to carry along some dry shampoo. This one’s a favorite of mine since it naturally revitalizes my hair without leaving any dusty residue.
Honest’s Magic Balm seriously stays true to its title. If you’re anything like me and need extra moisture throughout the day because you dry easily, a nice balm always fixes the problem. I’m a fan of this one because it’s so multifunctional. I personally use it for just about anything – from highlighting my cheekbones during my makeup routine to soothing rough skin spots.
One of my makeup staples lately has been this lip gloss! It helps keep your lips moisturized (which is so important when you’re in the heat for hours) and adds a light tint to your beauty look without overdoing things.
To freshen up as your on the go from one stage to the next, put on some facial spray! It’s the perfect hydrating boost while also adding a pleasant scent.
Nothing bothers me more than the gunk that builds up on the surface of a phone screen. To keep my devices clean as I’m on the go, I make sure to carry around these screen cleansing wipes.
This might be a given, but sunscreen is SO important to pack with you. To make sure I’ve got all day protection, I like to carry around this sunscreen stick. It’s water-resistant and nourishes skin, and I prefer it because it takes out the risk of a bottle spilling all over my stuff.
If you’ve been watching some of my IG stories lately, you’ve probably realized that I’m a little obsessed with my newest fanny pack. I love it because it’s so lightweight and I can carry around all my essentials easily. For mine plus some similar options to mine, check out the links below!
After a long day, I’ve discovered over the years that you never know what your body’s going to throw at you. Be sure sure to bring some some ibuprofen along with you, cause it can seriously save the day.
Water refill stations are literally all around the fields, so there’s no need to spend money every time you need a drink. I always make sure to stay hydrated, and having a fun reusable bottle helps you looking cute doing it! Plus, I love the smaller size ones because they’re so easy to carry around!
Carry around these staples and you’ll be desert ready!
