Sorry for such a picture-heavy post! But lots of pictures is always a sign of a good event, right? ;) A few weeks ago (yes- it has taken me a while to get this post up, more on that later) I was lucky enough to have been invited to an event organised by Swimwear 365 to promote their Spring/Summer range. The event took place in Revolucion De Cuba in Manchester City Centre, and boy, were we in for a treat. At the door we were greeted and given a colourful Lei to wear to get in to the summery holiday mood, as well as a wristband which allowed us to get three free cocktails of our choice! Revolucion De Cuba makes the most amazing cocktails and they were presented so well with fresh fruit to finish them off- I had the Spiced Strawberry Punch and the Raspberry Colada which were both incredible. They also had staff members walking around throughout the whole evening offering us tapas such as quesadillas and chicken skewers which were also lovely- I definitely need to go back there some time soon!
Anyway, more about the Swimwear365 event. They had a rail of their Spring/Summer collection on show, which ranged from bikinis to swimsuits to pretty summer dresses. All us lucky bloggers were allowed to leave name tags on our favourite piece to be sent for review- I actually received mine yesterday and I can't wait to style it up and show you- I chose this dress; I did really want to go for one of the lovely swimwear pieces but I'm not going on holiday this year so I wouldn't have had the chance to wear it :( but hopefully I can find an occasion to wear the dress as it's stunning! There was also a station where they had placed a huge map so that everybody could pick a holiday destination to style up an outfit for to guest post on the Swimwear 365 blog. I placed my marker on the Philippines, so I'll keep you posted when it's my turn to style up a holiday outfit :) Last but not least, we were all offered a summery manicure based on the bright colours of the new collection. I didn't have mine done as I had just painted my nails with chunky glitter that day and it wasn't going to budge, but the lovely Alex (Odd Socks Alex) had hers painted in a lovely teal shade with white polka dots- Very cute!
Thank you to Revolucion De Cuba and of course Swimwear 365 for putting on such a fun event and for the lovely goody bag that we were given at the end, which contained a Swimwear 365 beach towel, a chunky wooden necklace and a sarong (god, I wish I was going on holiday!). Go and check out their website if you're looking for some new swimwear or clothing pieces to take on holiday with you- They have loads of styles to choose from! :)
I also just want to apologise for my lack of posts recently- I know it seems like I drop off the face of the blogosphere quite regularly, but I keep going through unmotivated phases due to stress and personal issues. I still love blogging and it's my favourite thing to do and it makes me sad when I don't have the concentration to write good quality blog posts for you all :( Please bear with me, I have lots of blog posts lined up that I will churn out as and when I can, and hopefully I will be sorted and back to my old daily-blogging self soon! :)
