Are you a happy camper?

The Mister has always wanted to go camping and I have to admit, it wouldn't be my first choice of things to do.  I mean a tent which you have to put up yourself, a sleeping bag and erm... toilet in the ground?  Whereas a hotel means someone has done everything for you, there is a bath not to mention hot running water... so the idea for me has never appealed, though Glamping I totally love the sound of. 

Then some of my friends from Uni all got together this year back in May and went camping for the weekend, I couldn't go due to a huge work project but their photos look absolutely hilarious, especially Gemma in her flipflops, in the mud trying to erect this massive tent - she was never cut out for manual labour!

The one thing I did love was Lisa's tent, it was girly and brightly coloured and not green, the colour most tents are and injecting a bit of life into it sparked my interest, what if I could find something that I liked, would it be enough to make me want to try it? Well i'm not sure but I found this amazing girlified tent from thebeddingcompany who have a camping section randomly whilst Googling:





How pretty are these, seriously? I absolutely love that everything matches and it isn't as expensive as I feared it would be.  

The range is called Vintage Floral and the sleeping bag is £15, the chair is £20 and the tent, which is a 2 man tent is just £30 and it all rolls up into the smallest of bags so it doesn't take up too much room.  Then whenever I get into something, I spent an age on Pinterest just looking at floral things for camping and this is what I came up with so many things, as you can see here on my board.


Now how would you like to win a tent and a sleeping bag? well you can, I have entered and you can too, simply click HERE and enter your details - Good Luck!


I am not sure if I am cut out for going camping, but having discovered all of this, I have been thinking about it much more.

Are you a camper? Do you have a family of campers? 
Is it something you would consider?

  6. I don't think my back would forgive me if I slept in a tent but my goodness I want those floral things anyway! So pretty! I think I could use the sleeping bag and chair at least, I used a chair like that at the beach recently and oh my goodness it was comfortable xx

  8. You definitely wouldn't loose that tent! I'm volunteering at Reading Festival next year and am in desperate need for a tent. I'll definitely have a look at thebeddingcompany and see what deals they have!

  16. That tent is really pretty - but not big enough for my lot. We have a massive tent and only used it once. I do like how you can get them in different colours though.
