A true glamper knows that a tent and some camping gear just won’t suffice. It doesn’t matter if they’re camping in the woods, the beach or an arresting secluded lake far away – for a glamper, the world is their fashion runway and any opportunity to look their best (even in the most foreign and natural conditions) is a challenge they are willing to accept. Do you consider yourself a true glamper? Here’s a look at some of my top glamping goodies to help you put together your ultimate glamping checklist:
♥ Run Marble Tights by Stella McCartney
Who else’s got a massive crush on anything marble print? Farewell camouflage army trousers – these classy run marble tights by Stella McCartney have put their mark on every chic campers wardrobe. Made from climalite fabric, these tights look good on many body shapes, but they also keep you comfortable and dry during those early morning treks and water activities. No one else does sport luxe chic better than Stella McCartney!
♥ La Perla Lace Chemise
After a blissful day outdoors, there’s nothing that will feel better on the skin than this elegant white-stretched jersey panelled with luxurious floral lace. Wear this with loose-fitting silk pants for extra comfort and it’ll feel like you’re sleeping in a 6-star hotel suite, under the stars! Note: Don’t forget to spray some insect spray and m-o-i-s-t-u-r-i-s-e before bedtime.
♥ Women’s Cobra 6.0 WB Boot
The Women’s Cobra 6.0 WB Boot is totally made for the edgy glamper. Offering ultimate style in its all-black aesthetic as well as comfort and safety, this lightweight walking boot makes me feel like Angelina Jolie on the Tomb Raider!
♥ BeoPlay A2 Bluetooth Speaker
Weighing in at a light one kilogram and oozing in style with its leather handle and curvy dimensions is the BeoPlay A2 bluetooth speaker. Whether you and your friends love blasting some Taylor Swift or Beyoncé, these speakers play sound so clean and crisp, it’ll feel like you’re in an outdoor music festival.
♥ Fatima Iced Tea Jug
Forget about bulky camping drinking bottles, as this super hipster Fatima Iced Tea Jug is sure to make you and your camping buddies the perfect hot or cold tea. Yes, it’s a triple threat – aside from being beautiful to look at, it can also insulate 950 ml worth of delicious hot and cold drinks, perfect for when your neighbouring glampers want to come over for a tea-licious beverage!
♥ Sun Jar
Made with a traditional Mason jar, this light source is a resourceful solar cell with built-in rechargeable battery and low energy LED lamps. When the jar is placed in sunlight the solar cells produces an electrical current that charges the battery for a few hours, ideal for that late night scary story accompanied by roasted marshmallows and lovebirds hugs.
♥ Splice Love Rug
This circular and colourful modern love rug is all a glamper requires during an afternoon of sunbaking or lunch. The love rug has completely redefined the humble picnic blanket with its water resistant material, hidden pockets for storing phones and other bits and pieces as well as an adjustable shoulder strap for easy packing. A glamping selfie on the love rug will guarantee your likability on Instagram.
♥ Coconut Oil
This is probably already on your list, but us green beauty junkies can never have enough coconut oil. Aside from its calming and delicious scent and being 100% natural, it’s also great for cooking, removing make up, moisturising the skin and soothing insect bites. And let’s not forget combatting the wrath of frizzy hair. Hint: massage a few drops of coconut oil on the roots of your hair and leave overnight as treatment – say hello to glossy healthy hair the next morning!
♥ A Dulwich Raincoat
The Dulwich raincoat is a classically cut silhouette with concealed buttons and side pockets to add to its minimal and elegant exterior. But don’t think it’s all about the style – this raincoat can get you through the most unpredictable weather conditions with your hair still looking on point. Genius, right?
♥ Acure Dry Shampoo
Speaking of hair being on point, Acure Dry Shampoo is here to the rescue! With its all-natural ingredients, this shampoo will remove all the grime and dirt after messy camping activities and keep your hair moist and healthy. I call this the Holy Grail product for staying stylish throughout the glamping trip.
