May seems to be the month of Northern Blogger events and I am loving it! I have been all over the place the past couple of weeks and I still have a few events lined up! On Wednesday I made the short train journey over to Manchester to attend the South Beach Swim event which was organised by the lovely Katie (The Quick Red Fox)! We were greeted by her and handed a tag with our blog names on them so that we could hang them on our favourite swimwear piece later on, and also an amazingly refreshing Strawberry Prosecco Bellini. We were then set free to mingle with all the other bloggers and munch on mini cupcakes and chocolate cornflake cakes (which took me back to my childhood and were incredibly more-ish; very dangerous for my healthy eating!). Of course, with the event being held at Frurt Frozen Yogurt, we were treated to a portion of their tasty froyo. They had lots of toppings and different flavoured yogurts to choose from such as luxury chocolate, mango and strawberry lemonade, but I decided to just go for the natural plain yogurt with a naughty topping of chocolate brownie bites and strawberries- a match made in heaven and not too guilt-inducing as the yogurt itself is fat-free and a tiny 60 kcal per 100g portion [that's my excuse, anyway! ;)]. There were also some yummy-looking alcohol-free cocktails available that were made with froyo and Vita Coco which I didn't get to try, although I wish I did now as I love coconut water!
We all got to have a nosy through a rail of South Beach Swim's Spring/Summer range where there were a LOT of gorgeous, colourful bikinis on display, but in the end I fell in love with this black fringed swimsuit (in my 7th photo) and left my name tag on the hanger. There are competitions going on for us to win our chosen piece, so fingers crossed! ;)
There was also a lovely goodie bag for each of us as we left, which included a South Beach snapback cap- Not my usual style but I'm having a lot of fun thinking of ways to style it- I wish I was going on holiday so I could wear it on the beach! Thank you Katie and South Beach Swim for putting on a lovely event and to Frurt Frozen Yogurt and Vita Coco for providing us with some yummy treats! :)
