Cocoa Brown #PassionPersistencePink Event


On Sunday 27th I got to attend the Cocoa Brown #PassionPersistencePink Event in The Shelbourne Hotel. I was invited to the event which was amazing and I couldn’t wait to go. The event was called #PassionPersistencePink and we knew Marissa was going to be unveiling two new Cocoa Brown products as well as XFactor make up artist Julia Carta doing a make up demo it sounded amazing.

Because the event was #PassionPersistencePink I knew I had to wear some Pink to the event. I opted for my pink longline blazer from Topshop and my pink Michael Kors bag.  I wore all black underneath because I wanted to wear my fringe skirt from Penneys again 🙂 I got the black high neck top from New Look. Check out this outfit below:


When I arrived at The Shelbourne the sun was shining and the red carpet was out for us there was a bit of a queue to get in which turned out to be a queue to meet the gorgeous Marissa Carter founder of Cocoa Brown I was delighted. I got a bit starstruck because I follow Marissa on snapchat, twitter and instagram and just think she is an amazing woman who has achieved so much. When I met her we chatted for a minute and got a photo taken she was so friendly and stunning as always. I met up with Eimear from The Two Darlings and fellow Clogger and we headed into get a seat.












The event itself was one of the best I have been at there were lots of spot prizes and Marissa had everyone involved by hiding prizes under our plates, cups and seats it was all brilliant such a great idea for spot prizes.

When Marissa showed us the two new Cocoa Brown products it was brilliant you could see how proud she was and the whole room was just so happy and excited to try them out. The new products are two instant tan bronzing gels one is matte and one is shimmer and they look amazing!!

We all received an amazing goodie bag or “Swag Bag” as Marissa called it which had the two new instant tans inside along with lots of other goodies I have a photo below 🙂


We then had some afternoon tea and we all chatted about the new products and our goodie bags then Julia started her make up demo.


As she was doing the demo on Marissa, Marissa kept asking lots and lots of questions but they were questions everyone wanted to know so it was really good. She talked us through each product and each step and Marissa took snaps of each product that Julia used.

Overall the day was amazing I cannot wait to use the two new instant tans and will have a review up as soon as I use them. Check out some more photos of the day below:
