The Slug and Lettuce Cocktail Masterclass

Recently I was lucky enough to be invited along to The Slug and Lettuce at the Harbourside in Bristol. The venue has recently been given a floral refurbishment and it looks absolutely incredible.

As soon as I walked through the door my eyes were drawn to the decor of this place. Being welcomed by a beautiful flower tree and the cutest gin bar was definitely what I needed after a hard days work.

I was greeted by the wonderful staff and an ice cold glass of bubbly. We were then shown to our table in order for us to get ready for our cocktail masterclass. As somebody who loves cocktails, I was really excited to see what the night would bring.

The mixologist in charge of the night was incredibly knowledgeable and very helpful. We started by making a classic Mojito. It was great to see what ingredients we needed and I am confident that after lots of practise, that I have now mastered the technique

We then went on to make some fruity martinis which were my favourite. I really enjoyed learning how to get the perfect combination of flavours. 

After learning how to create my favourite drink, I will definitely be getting the ingredients and making one at home.

After making and drinking several cocktails, it was great to be able to look around and explore the newly refurbished bar. I really loved the neon lighting and flower wall. This place is the perfect place for taking cute photos with your friends.

I couldn’t find a single inch of the venue that was not decorated beautifully. Even the toilets look incredibly detailed. I was really impressed with how different the venue looked. The theme fits perfectly with the upcoming seasons.

I had such a great evening at The Slug and Lettuce and the cocktails were absolutely incredible. If you’re looking for a place to go in Bristol, then I would definitely recommend this place. They also have 2 for 1 cocktails, so it would be rude not to!

 

This evening was gifted to me by The Slug and Lettuce, but all opinions and photographs are my own.

Bristol Fashion Week Event

Last night I was lucky enough to receive a bloggers pass which allowed me to attend the Bristol Fashion Week Event at The Mall in Cribbs Causeway, Bristol. The event was hosted by Denise Van Outen and Mark Heyes, who certainly made the event one to remember!
I had an amazing night and I definitely recommend you bag yourself a ticket and enjoy one of the last few shows!

On arrival we were greeted with raffle tickets, along with treats for Krispy Kreme and traditional lemonade and fondant fancies from M&S. The waiting area was decorated with a wonderful Spring garden theme and these tasty treats made brilliant snacks throughout the show!

We were lucky enough to be able to sit near the front which allowed me to have a perfect view of the catwalk, along with the glamorous outfits and models displayed on it. The catwalk featured many Spring/Summer themes including florals, colour bursts, short and sassy, street styles and many more. All of the outfits were amazing, but the brands which stood out to me the most were Coast, Warehouse, New Look, River Island, Karen Millen and Marks & Spencer. 

Whilst watching the finale, we were each gifted with an amazing goody bag which featured many products including a No 7 Mascara, a box of Perfectil Skin, Hair and Nails Vitamins, along with luscious hand creams and skincare products. This was a lovely surprise and I cannot wait to review these beautiful products.

After leaving the event I was lucky enough to be able to go across to M&S to attend their Bloggers Event – I will be posting a blog about my time there very soon!

The event is on till Sunday so if you are looking to go you can find information about the event and how to purchase tickets here.
