Lovely Lady Lunch at the Shelbourne Hotel

Yesterday I went along to The Shelbourne Hotel for lunch to celebrate the launch of the newest offering from Cocoa Brown, their Night and Day Tan. It's always so nice to catch up with old faces and get to meet lovely new bloggers too. We enjoyed a gorgeous three course dinner, having never been to The Shelbourne Hotel before I'll definitely be going back again. It was the perfect spot to hold a launch and I had such a brilliant time. The dinner was so yummy, I opted for the celeriac soup for starters and a lovely risotto for my main. I held off getting desert though as I'm still sticking to my Slimming World program. I did take a sneaky picture of Sarah's chocolate fondant to show you guys, doesn't it look scrumptious?

I'm obsessed with the original Cocoa Brown 1HR Tan so I was super excited to learn more about their new offering. I'm not the biggest tan lover, I always end up ridiculously orange which is certainly not the look I want to go for. However this never happened with the original tan I was left with a gorgeous natural glow after one hour which is exactly what I desired. The new tan is something different, applied before a night out you get a dark tan when watched off the next day your left with a natural healthy glow. I think this sounds perfect for any girl like myself who is heading to work the next day after a night out and doesn't want a dark tan from the night before. I haven't put this to the test yet but I'll be putting up a post soon to let you know my thoughts.After being blown away with the 1HR Tan I'm really looking forward to giving the new one a try. Marissa herself is so enthusiastic about her latest product that I know it's going to be a good one. Again the packaging just like the original is beautiful, something I know I'll be displaying on my shelve in my bedroom. Being a student it's great to find a tan that's good quality but also affordable at €7.99 which you can't go wrong with in my book. The new addition will be launching in stores in the next 2 weeks so definitely keep your eyes peeled for it. I just want to thank Marissa and Sarah for such a lovely launch, it was so nice to have so many bloggers sitting around the one table. I have so many new ones to check out now.

Have you tried Cocoa Brown's 1HR Tan? Are you looking forward to trying the new addition to the range?

    1. Isn't it?? It had such a laid back relaxed feel to it that I really like it. It was such much easier to hear and chat all about the product compared to the hustle bustle of some events xx
