Benicassim Day 4

In case you hadn't figured it out, I've been in Benicassim this last week for Festival Internacional Benicassim. I've always wanted to do a festival abroad and this one in Spain has always appealed to me. Seeing as it was so close to my Birthday - which is later this week, we thought it'd be fun to go and just have a good time in the sun and sand, while listening to some good music.

I know I should have started with Day One's outfit, but I loved this one so much that I had to share it first. I really love this dress - it's so perfect for a beach-at-day to a summer festival-at-night transition. There was also a hilarious moment when I went to the beach and took off my sandals. I hadn't realised how hot the sand would be and what followed was minutes of my running around to find a cold patch of sand. *Spoiler alert* - there was none. While painful for me, the locals absolutely loved the scene!

Benicassim was so much fun and I'll have to go again. While we actually had a hotel for 5 nights, we actually made friends and spent a lot of our nights in the campsite. I always thought I was too high maintenance for that, but I've realised that if you have amazing company with you, it doesn't actually matter where you are. But it was nice to know there was a hot shower and my straighteners waiting for me in an air conditioned hotel room, haha!

We saw Kodaline and Paolo Nutini that night too. We were actually right at the front for Kodaline and I would have to say that their set was my favourite of the whole weekend. They sound so beautiful live and 'High Hopes' gave me goosebumps too.

Henry Holland for Debenhams

I love how Debenhams always such great designer collaborations. From Betty Jackson to John Rocha, the collections are always so stylish. My favourite collaboration is definitely the Henry Holland one, with every season's collection being very popular among bloggers in particular.

I got to check out the newest upcoming collection and I was a huge fan of it. There are some really cute pieces and some lovely prints. Here are some of my favourites from the night.

Cocktails, Coffee and Popcorn

Cocktails and popcorn are my favourite thing, and once coffee is thrown in, it's a killer combination for food.

I'm such a cocktail fan and have never really tried to make them at home. I was recently sent some gorgeous LSA cocktail glasses which definitely wants me to start shaking some drinks. They're very classy looking and I love the prints on each of the glasses.

I also have myself a brand spanking new coffee machine from Nescafe Dolce Gusto. It's such a sleek looking machine and fits in so well in the house. I also have a nice selection of pods for different flavours.

I also can't wait to share the new and larger sized Metcalfes Skinny Topcorn. Popcorn is ultimate favourite snack and I love all the different flavours that Metcalfes do. Sweet and salty is definitely my most preferred choice.
