Listed below are a compilation of some of my personal *must have* items. Products that are designed to make your life easier and festival things I love in general.

*DISCLAIMER* If you have read through my site or know me at all, you know that I would rather walk across broken glass then sell my soul to make money off of you from a product I don’t believe in. But, alas, the Federal Trade Commission is not sure you really know this…so they require I spell it out. Makes sense.
The FTC is charged with protecting American consumers. They have established guidelines that outline their expectations of product endorsements.
“The Guides, at their core, reflect the basic truth-in-advertising principle that endorsements must be honest and not misleading. An endorsement must reflect the honest opinion of the endorser and can’t be used to make a claim that the product’s marketer couldn’t legally make.
In addition, the Guides say, if there’s a connection between an endorser and the marketer that consumers would not expect and it would affect how consumers evaluate the endorsement, that connection should be disclosed.” –FTC
Ergo, I wrote this simple, but witty disclosure, to empower everyone to make an informed decision before clicking on any affiliate marketing links. I recommend products and services that I like. Sometimes, I get a small commission if you make a purchase through one of my recommended links. This comes at no extra cost to you. In fact, I sometimes get promo codes that could save you a little! I would hope that if you referred a product that you enjoyed to me, and you had the chance to make some money off of it, you would jump at that opportunity!
Think of me as the middle man. You’re looking for cool things, and I know who has them. I bring those goods to your attention, and for that, the suppler of these goods rewards me. My commission comes out of the company’s pocket, not yours. You don’t pay anymore then anyone else, and I get a thank you from the company for putting you in touch with them. Everybody wins. For the purpose of transparency, all affiliate items in my blog posts are identified with #affiliate at the end of the product description. If you have any questions or want to know more about any goods or services, please feel free to reach out to me through my CONTACT page and I’ll happily give you further information 🙂

The OG wide mouth: perfect for adding ice, checking for floaties, and easy cleaning. While these water bottles come in a variety of colors, the GLOW IN THE DARK factor takes this particular one to the next level! Glows a super vibrant classic green after being exposed to UV (black light) or sunlight for only a few minutes. Even above average glow when in contacted with regular house lighting. Durable BPA free design that makes it suitable for warm or cold drinks. Measurements are marked in both ounces and milliliters that are molded into the plastic, not painted on. Dishwasher safe (top shelf), leak proof grip seal, perfect to clip on almost anything with a carabiner, and relatively indestructible. I have owned many, and only managed to brake one! (How Weird 2019). *Also available in an adorable 12oz mini version…perfect for a mixed drink on the go, or small children!
Dubbed FashionPopCandy these suckers sure deliver! They are available in 8 base colors and 6 flavors. I purchased the Rainbow & Bling-Bling (gold sparkle) bases, which come with one flavor pop included, then I ordered an additional 3 pack of “Cool Crystal Candies” for refills. All the lollipop candies (tops) come with a convenient plastic snap lid that allows you to savor the flavor on and off through out the day. In my experience, the lid stays on through some pretty intense dancing, which is impressive. There are LED lights in the base, they have a very long battery life due to a push sensor that times out after 15 seconds. In addition to being able to convieniently fit over your head , all lanyards have an easy off closure at the back of the neck that is designed to snap off in order to avoid injury (safety third). LED lanyards available in 7 different colors if you want to upgrade your purchase.
If you told me I could only have one adhesive to craft with for the rest of my life, hands down, this would be it! This glue is composed of a silicon base that is uniquely formulated to meet high-performance needs. Works well on heavy materials like metal and wood. It is also excellent for an array of craft mediums, including fabric, glass, ceramics, leather, rubber, vinyl, most plastics and more. E6000 comes in a variety of sizes/styles, I prefer the 3.7oz (large) version in CLEAR with the pointed accuracy tip. Glue is tacky after just a few minutes, which prevents slippage. Firmly attached and ready to wear in just a few hours. Easily found in almost any craft or home improvement store.
From sexy to punk, nothing jazzes up an outfit like a pair of fishnets. Wear these tights traditionally on your legs, or turn things upside down by making a hole in the crotch and then cut off the feet…put arms through “legs” and then head through the strategically made hole. Now you have a top! What makes these particular type of Fishnet more appealing is the fact they are virtually indestructible. Typically constructed of 10-20% Spandex/Lycra. No snags or rips like with classic fishnet. They also help keep you warm as they are surprisingly insulating. This special blend of materials holds up well, and can be worn literally hundreds of times and still look like new. Hand wash and air dry for longevity, but I have thrown them in the washer and dryer a handful of times and they still looked great and lasted over 5 years. This diamond shaped knit is available in a variety of colors and hole dimensions making it such a clutch accessory for any outfit.
These magical little clips have saved me so many times in the real world, but especially while camping and at a festival/event. Perfect for attaching all the things to all the other things! You can use it as a simple keychain, a way to attach a water bottle to a backpack, to secure two zipper pulls together and so much more! I tend to carry extra carabiners with me everywhere because you truly never know when they will come in handy. I’ve used a carabiner on the spot for everything from repairing a broken purse strap to securing a shoe closed after a broken shoestring. Mostly, they are one of my favorite things to gift out to people because there is always a need/use. The great thing about Carabiners in general is they are typically constructed from lightweight aluminum and come in a variety of sizes and colors, some with an extra secure “lock” feature.
