Last Thursday saw the second of our high summer blogger events. This time we gathered together some of the best bloggers in our hometown of Manchester to view our summer swim and beachwear collections.

The event was hosted at Lola’s Lounge in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, a fantastic hidden gem serving tiki-inspired cocktails and decked out like a tropical island paradise inside. Styles like our Bird of Paradise printed bikini looked right at home against a backdrop of palm trees, ocean sunset murals and even a beach hut.

We created a custom cocktail list for guests featuring Lola’s own rum-based house specials given a summertime twist especially for our event. As well as delicious cocktails, we had some incredible bespoke cakes made which went down a storm with our bloggers! Forgetting about our beach bodies for the night, we tucked into a seaside-themed carrot cake and a mermaid-esque glittery chocolate cake covered in sweets and ice cream cones as well as a tray of rocky road!

The ladies at Manchester-based Skinhealth Spa were also on hand to give manicures to our guests, bringing a gorgeous array of summer nail shades.

A few of our bloggers also tried their look with our custom beach ball piñatas filled with confetti and sweets- we were glad we weren’t cleaning up afterwards!
