Getting Through Festival Season

This is easier than it seems folks. Look up where you’re going before and see what you can have. In the last month I have been to Orlando and CMA Fest
so here are a few tips to help you through it.

1) Bring a Camelbak!! Fill it with ice and water and throughout the day the ice will melt and you should have water all day to help you stay hydrated.

2) Pack fruit. I like to cut up fruit and put them in lock boxes. Then put them in the bottom of the Camelbak to help stay away from the heat of the sun and stays cool since its against the ice water. The fruit is not only refreshing on a hot day but the sugar in fruit helps your blood levels.
Also really nourishing to bring with you in your pack while your standing in front of the stage and can’t leave so you get the best spot to see that amazing new artist.

3) Sunscreen is a must. I don’t care who you are, the rays of the sun affect everyone's skin and you should always wear a little protection.  I personally love Aveeno Tinted Moisturizer since it has a tint to it to cover up my blemishes from my allergic reactions. It has a 30 SPF in it that prevents my face from burning in the sun all day.

4) Bring bandana’s to soak in the water when you get a chance and wrap around your neck.
(Huge thanks to Netflix, The Ranch, for setting up Maggie's bar and passing out cold bandanas for us at CMA Fest!)

5) Battery Packs!! Obviously these are a must. You need at least one or 2 rechargeable battery packs for your phone. I remember the days when they were not a thing and you had to choose when was the best time to bust out your phone.

6) I also like to throw in a mini first aid kit because you never know what's gonna happen. OH! And a painkiller like Aleve, Advil, or Tylenol.

Other Tips and Must Haves:
Koozies, sunglasses, bottle opener, load your credit cards into your phone. Download Venmo to make going out with groups and cashing out easier. A mini speaker and charger, I personal love my UE speakers because they can all get wet. lip balm, face wipes, hair brush, cooler, ice,  chairs and bricks, straps, or steaks to hold down tents. Games like cornhole or pong, trash bags, and change of shoes, towels, swimsuit, and of course cups.

Oh! If you’re a ginger or someone that has very fair skin, bring an umbrella to help block and protect your skin from the sun.
