If I could put into words how excited I am for it to start getting warmer, I would right here. Warmer weather means I can have my windows open, get outside the house, go to the pool and of course, it's music festival season! Coachella is right around the corner and I thought it was fitting to share with you my MUST HAVES for the music festival season so that you can be prepared.
CELL PHONE: Okay, this one may be obvious- but just in case it isn't, we are starting off with it. I love having my phone so that I can take photos (as most venues / concerts / festivals don't allow professional cameras inside) and it's great to have if you go with friends and end up getting separated at some point.
CASH: Make sure you bring cash. Most places I've been usually don't take debit cards and if they do have an atm- the fee is outrageous. So, just to be on the safe side, always bring cash.
SMALL WALLET / CROSSBODY: This is great to have for things like your cash + cell phone, stuff that you may need to access a little faster. I am IN LOVE with this cute one from Sakroots! Small, can be a wristlet, wallet OR a crossbody + holds so much!
POLAROID CAMERA: Okay- this one is just for fun but I think it would be awesome to take my instant camera to get photos of me with friends, if I meet anyone and just for fun pictures to take home AND most venues allow you to bring these in! I just love the way the photos look that come from these!
DEODORANT: Let's be honest, I sweat like crazy and we all know I'm going to be sweating like a mad man whenever it's hot as heck outside + I'm dancing around to awesome music. Having a backup in your backpack is just a bonus. Nobody wants to smell bad.
BACKPACK: Having a backpack is a must! It's great to carry everything in you need in one place. You can store your wallet, your camera, your deodorant and whatever else in there and just carry it around. I always like placing one on the back of my wheelchair to carry everything I need and right now, my go to is the Sakroots convertible backpack! It's HUGE and SO CUTE! I have the Ivory Spirit Desert print. Sakroots allows you to "Choose Your Karma" when you pick designs from artists in their circle. Each design is designated to a charity- my print (Spirit Desert) supports WILD AT HEART! and even better? Sakroots matches each donation!
