Happy Friday guys!! I’m currently in the midst of packing my bag for V Festival tomorrow, I’ve pretty much spent the past hour trying on outfits and am still none the wiser as to what to take with me, le sigh! Anyway, on another note I’ve come to the end of my Costa Coffee #HelloSummerMoments challenge, a while back Costa asked me if I’d like to get involved and I jumped at the chance – they sent me a super cute hamper packed with some new treats from the Costa summer menu, some Essie polishes, this amazing ‘Hello’ clutch bag and a Costa voucher so we could try the new menu. So, here’s what I got up to last week…
During our challenge we were set mini tasks on what pictures to take and here’s how I adapted my images to the brief. First of all we had to take a #selfie with our Costa pick, after browsing the new summer menu I decided to opt for the Strawberry and Lime cooler which was so delicious and refreshing – can’t wait to get me another one! For my picture I decided to do a more of a ‘from where I stand’ kind of selfie rather than a traditional one (it was a no-wash hair day okay guys!).
Our second task was to give ourselves a mani or pedi with one of our Essie polishes, this one was super easy as I absolutely love painting my nails so I picked this amazing berry pink called ‘Haute in the heat’ and got cracking. I’m a huge fan of this Essie polish and loved the shade! Our third picture challenge was to incorporate an item from the summer menu with our outfit – as I’d just painted my nails in the Essie pink I opted for a Strawberry and Lime drink and had pink flowers on my shorts too, so I thought it would be a prime opportunity for an outfit snap!
Lastly we had to introduce a friend or family member to the new menu so I popped into our local Costa after picking my mum up from work and she chose a Caramel Latte cooler which she loved (although she nearly drunk it all on the way home before I could get a snap, haha!).
I hope you enjoyed my #HelloSummerMoments pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them! A huge thank you to Costa for asking me to take part – I had so much fun 🙂
