A Day At Reading Festival with OtterBox

This week I have been exploring London alongside OtterBox, exposing some of my favourite spots in this gorgeous city I am so lucky to live in. I decided to reveal my favourite spots in the borough of Camden {My Guide to Camden is coming soon} and whilst exploring, I have been using and putting their phone cases to the test.

And by ‘putting to the test’ I mean… seeing whether the phone cases can protect my phone and withstand my hands-on, full-speed + no-limits approach to life {because that comes with a lot of phone dropping, slipping and popping}.

Test number 1 passed with flying colours.

P.s. The phone cover I chose was a pastel pink and purple cover, but the cases come in all shapes and sizes to suit your outfit, your phone and your mood.

You can shop the full OtterBox collection here.

Test number two, and the final phase of the summer adventures, involved me taking my phone and the OtterBox case to Reading Festival, a festival that’s actually super local for me but known globally for it’s epicness.

Myself and my friend Chessie hopped on the train and walked the final furlong from Reading Train station where we were banded up at the entrance and entered the craziness.

Now it doesn’t happen often, but guess what?

THE SUN CAME OUT.

Festivals in the UK are notorious for rain. Simple as.

Wellies are the ultimate fashion staple and wading through muddy fields whilst admitting defeat of your entire belongings to the soggy earth is just standard.

Yes, even in the summer.

But by chance, Bank Holiday weekend this year had wonderfully timed itself with an English heatwave and infact, we found ourselves shade hopping for most of the afternoon.

Upon arrival, Chessie and I first wandered around the numerous stages at the festival to get our bearings and suss out, obviously, the best food stands on offer.

Top Tip: Even if you’re bursting for a wee when you first enter the festival, hold yourself until your pass through the campsite and into the arena. The arena toilets are a MILLION times better than the stable-smelling toilets on the campsite. TRUST ME {and they have mirrors}.

As much as we both love to head to the gym and maintain a healthy lifestyle, festivals are a definite excuse for indulgence. After all, when you’re dancing and burning off that many calories, you need to refuel right?

Oh we refuelled good and proper…

Festival vibes are, without a doubt, my absolute favourite vibes.

There isn’t much that beats the energy of thousands of people dancing, singing and being carefree all together, in one space.

Peoples barriers are broken down, friendships are made, new moves are tested on the dance floor and everybody comes together and loses themselves in one amazing medium… MUSIC.

My favourite stage was the Dance Stage and also where I got to see, and was blown away by, Lion Babe.

This absolute SASS queen rocked the stage with her vocals, her hooks, her dancing and her outfit.

On the main stage we watched the adorable Chvrches perform hits ‘Bury It’ and ‘Leave A Trace’ before the absolute highlight for me… Rudimental.

Rudimental have provided the soundtrack to many amazing memories for me, and are an act that burst with infectious energy the moment they get on stage.

Needless to say we boogied ourselves silly as Reading turned to twilight and the sun set magically over the festival.

Spending the day surrounded by such incredible energy and music always leaves me feeling so inspired. Even more so when your partner in crime is someone who mirrors your enthusiasm and provides symmetry to your madness.

‘Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius + it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.’

Test number 2 passed with flying colours.

Chessie and I both rocked the Otterbox Phonecases for the duration of the festival and their dual defensive layers proved the perfect partner for our dance moves.

Obviously we kept our phones in hands to Snap and capture those scrapbook worthy moments whilst we danced, but sometimes we did get a little carried away.

Otterbox wonderfully protected an iPhone faceplant or two and our phones returned home with us safe, sound and un marked!
