LoveBox Festival 2015 - with Revlon UK (Part 1)


This year I was lucky enough to gain 2 VIP Tickets to the LoveBox Festival 2015 held in Victoria Park, (East) London curtesy of Revlon UK – MASSIVE thanks to Revlon UK for providing me with this once in a life time opportunity. The festival runs over the course of 2 days and this year it ran from 17th July – 18th July 2015 featuring acts such as Skepta, Ella Eyre, Annie Mac, Jessie Ware etc

Doors opened from mid-day and the festival finished at around 10:30pm, so you really do get your money’s worth. They have everything from flash tattoo stands, photo booths and clothing stands to food, drink and cupcake stands! (That’s just the general admission section!)
The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.” Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec
 
As I was fortunate enough to be involved in the VIP area, this year they took inspiration from the wanders, adventurers, aristocrats and vagabonds who infiltrated the gypsy neighbourhoods of Paris in the late 1800s and imagine a vision of the future as they might have dreamt it.  There key selling point for me was this “Expect the unexpected amid the fading velvet, glittering mirrors and whirring cogs…” (The unexpected and glitter bit had me hooked).

The experiences of the VIP include:
- An exclusive, extra-special programme of music and entertainment all weekend with a different host each day
- Access to the dedicated and decadent VIP area backstage, right beside the artists and all of the action
- Fast track entry to the Festival
- Luxury toilets
- Cocktail bar, entertainments and experiences
 
Since it is a festival after all, I took to Pintrest and sought out hair inspiration and came up with probably the most un-imaginative hair idea ever, fishtail braids going from the front of my hair either side and joining at the back with the most bobby pins I've ever used but you guys have seemed to like it on Instagram! This was a simple look but it kept in place all day and kept my hair from being as bad as it could have been.



My outfit for the day was comfort orientated so my trusty Converse where an absolute must, followed my New Look dark wash denim shorts with a few rips in for that real festival feel, a comfy easy New Look cotton black vest top with gold zip detailing at the back, a very old New Look grey jumper to tie around my waist for after the festival and big statement necklace and lips, my necklace is from H&M and my lips where Revlon’s ColourBurst Matte Balm in Unapologetic, quite possibly the most summery and bold lip colour ever! 
 


 
There where so many incredible stands’ at the festival and such a variety! From food to fashion to beauty!!! One of my personal favourites was a little fashion/jewellery stand tucked away in the corner, this little hidden gem had everything from clothing to jewellery to bags to beach wear! There was also a glitter, gem and flash tattoo stand in VIP!! There was such a variety of stands and artists that everyone could find something they liked.




 
This polystyrene mannequin was hand made using shattered mirror! And that was the general feel of the festival handmade pieces and food, authentic and just very unique in it's own right. No one person was dressed the same and each stand or area was so unique to anything I have seen before, everyone who organised LoveBox 2015 made sure that it would be a unique and unforgettable experience.


Stay tuned for Part 2 of my LoveBox Festival experience with Revlon UK! #LoveBox15
