Festival Season is upon us: Check out My List of Must Haves!
If you follow me on social media, then I know you’ve noticed that I go to a slew of concerts and music festivals all year long. Regardless, when music festival season finally arrives, I still get so excited! This season, I decided to share some of the tips and tricks I’ve learned over the years to help you remember to pack everything you need to stay stylin’ at your next music festival.
Most of our favorite music festivals are in the summer, when it’s hard to stay cute in the sweltering heat! With this in mind, here is a list of some of my festival must haves to help you stay cool:
State I.D or Passport
Band-Aids (because you never know)
A bandana (to protect your lungs)
A rechargeable battery pack for your phone
A water bottle you can refill
A poncho (depending on the weather)
DJ Equipment (you never know who’s going to ask you to provide the tunes)
A pair of shoes you don’t care to ruin
Headphones (before or after festival)
Cool festival outfits (I usually pack for 2 outfits per day)
Chapstick (because no one likes ashy lips)
Your festival credentials
Accessories (floral headbands are a safe go-to)
Don’t forget your toiletries:
Eye Cream/night cream, etc.
Slippers (for after the shower)
Nail polish remover (you never know)
Brush + comb
I usually procrastinate when packing, and typically wait until the rest of New York is sleeping to avoid distractions, but this time I decided to make it a celebration of its own. I threw on Zane’s album and made myself a cocktail with one of my favorite liqueurs: Viniq! A Viniq Shimmer Fizz cocktail to be exact…the Viniq’s delicious combination of vodka, moscato, and fruit flavors was the perfect way to celebrate a sick weekend ahead of me.
If you want to do the same, check out the ingredients for this delicious, simple, and beautiful Viniq Original cocktail recipe:
Ingredients: 1/2 Viniq Original 1/2 Lemon-Lime Soda
With all natural fruit flavors of peach, citrus, and berry, I’m a big fan of this shimmery and refreshing liqueur and have been experimenting with different cocktails over the past few months.

Don’t forget to share your favorite music festival moments with the girls with the hashtag #bringtheshimmer to see your photo on the site alongside mine.
Stay chill out there!
