Camping – Sorry Glamping!

 So this weekend see’s the start of the Jonas’s making the most of the beautiful English countryside and the weather. We are Camping, sorry Glamping underneath the stars.  Being a born and bred Londoner I do have the tendency to break out in a slight sweat/panic about the lack of hot water and electricity. How will I keep up with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram? (much to Mr J’s amusement!)  Having been in the girl guides and taken part in the Duke of Edinburgh awards I can handle my own if push comes to shove.  Give me a map and a compass and i’ll get back to camp somehow!
But first things first here is my camping outfit for this weekend!
Glamping 2:

Tie top
£15 – laredoute.co.uk
Maison Scotch cotton field jacket
£101 – coggles.com
H&M high waisted jeans

Having worked out the important stuff like the weather and what to wear, there comes the challenge of actually packing for the weekend.  So while I was making my list I thought I would share it with all you Campers and Glampers! With the festival season in full swing and Glastonbury around the corner hopefully my essential and (extended) packing list will be of some use to you:
