happy hour,

I was invited to attend The Body Shop's #Siezethesummer event in my local store to celebrate the launch of the Virgin Mojito range. We were greeted with food, drinks (including a homemade lime mocktail which was amazing, might I add) and flower garlands to give us that holiday/party vibe. Shame the weather didn't reflect out moods though! 

The Virgin Mojito range contains extracts of lime and crushed mint from the Caribbean which has created the ultimate body cooling cocktail. When I first heard of this range, I was a bit unsure due to the fact that I don't particularly like the smell of lime or mint for that matter however when I went to actually smell the products it was amazing! It wasn't what I was expecting at all and I will definitely be back to purchase more from the range. I currently have my eye on the 'Happy hour' collection which comes in a shaker container. 

There was also a lucky dip  along with handmade accessories which all proceeds went to Cancer Research. Me being typical me, I didn't actually have any money on me. Fortunately everyone else had loads of coins on them so they made up for my lack of cash! 

Before leaving, we received this lovely bag full of goodies which included; nail varnish, travel size mojito body butter, foot soak, lip butter, bath lilly (I didn't know they were called that oops!) along with some vouchers for a local coffee shop which also supplied us with the slushies.

I had such an amazing time seeing some of my fellow North East bloggers including (from left to right): Danni from Gingerbread Smiles, Beth from Polished Couture, Eleanor from Teapots and Elephants, Kate from Kate Emma Loves, Sally from Little Budget (and her sister!) and Kloe from Skulls and Kisses

Have you tried any of the products from this range?
