Holi Festival of Colours

Number 59 on my Bucket List is to attend a festival as I've never been in all of my 22 years. So last Sunday my friend Shabana and I headed to Battersea Power Station for the Holi Festival of Colours and boy was it full of colours. Knowing how messy it was going to get, I wore a run down top and shorts that I could throw away after. Shabs bought her 'dork' tee from Primark just for the event.

                                                            All clean and colour free before the event 


The main powders were thrown every hour and we had a count down so every one is ready with their own powders as well.

....and up went the colours





We bought these boots in Primark specially for the day and a few hours later....
.....they loooked like this
 Bandana, scarfs and sunglasses were definietly an essential item for the festival.
 About five times of trying to take this photo by a somewhat tipsy girl, we finally got the shot.
