Ask An Intern: The Do’s And Don’ts Of Your First Camping Festival

festival_newb

This past weekend I attended Wayhome Music & Arts Festival in Oro-Medonte, ON for my first ever overnight festival experience. Planning a weekend-long festival trip is exciting, but can also be very daunting for a broke-a$$ bae like myself (where my students at, you feel me??). When you’re planning for the weekend, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and to think that you won’t have any FUN if you don’t have the FUNDS. As Wayhome 2016 came to a close, I reflected on my time spent camping under the stars, and realized that I had learned a lot about the DO’s and DON’TS of festival thrifting.

My friends and I may not have camped in style, but we made it to the other side of the weekend unscathed (although a little dusty)! Click through to see how this Fora intern survived Wayhome 2016 on a budget and how I learned what not to do… the hard way.

Letitia Chan Helps Us Style The Leafs’ New Look

leafsheader

Not many things look good when they’re a whole century old (except for maybe 100-year-old Ryan Gosling), but this year the Toronto Maple Leafs hit that milestone. To celebrate, they’ve unveiled a brand-new logo that’s gonna keep them looking ~fresh~ until their next centennial.

With this landmark moment fast approaching, it’ll be hard to not bleed blue and white, but if you’re anything like Much Digital Creator Letitia Chan, you may think icing is just extravagant jewellery and your best guess for what a hat-trick is would be a hat that doubles as a stylish clutch for a night out. If this sounds familiar, you’ll want to click through for a Maple Leaf themed buying guide curated with the stylish help of Letitia!
