A few weeks ago I was given the opportunity to do a photoshoot with one of my favourite swim/loungewear brands, South Beach Swim. They asked me if I'd like to be part of their Winter shoot taking place at the Gotham hotel in Manchester and I jumped at the chance. I have to admit, I'm still very nervous when it coms to shoots - I'm not a model and as someone who suffers with self-confidence issues, it can be really nerve-wracking. Not to mention that I was shooting with Bethany/// who has to be one of the most beautiful girls I've laid my eyes on! However, the team made me feel super comfortable and I really enjoyed myself!
The hotel we were shooting at was absolutely stunning and I was lucky enough to be able to stay in the room once we finished the shoot which was amazing! If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Snapchat, I'm sure you saw me posting pictures of it! If not, head over to have a look as it was beautiful. You can also look at the hotel online here and if you're ever needing somewhere to stay in Manchester, I would highly recommend it.
As I mentioned, the shoot was for South Beach's Winter collection to it was focused around their amazing night and lounge wear. I have to say, I was so impressed with the collection as there isn't one thing I didn't love and wouldn't wear. I was lucky enough to shoot a selection of their different pieces from lace pyjamas to cosy dressing gowns and the best novelty slippers! As you can see from the photos, the pieces are all so lovely. I've got a huge obsession with sleep / loungewear as it's what I spend most of time wearing. Whenever I'm chilling at home - comfy clothing is totally essential. I'm the type of person that puts some pyjamas of loungewear on as soon as I get home so South Beach and their collection always has be swooning!
I thought I'd give you a little run through of the items myself and Bethany are wearing in these photos in case you want to treat yourself. South Beach are having a huge sale at the moment with up to 50% off certain items including the ones we're wearing here so if you want to treat yourself to some cosy clothing and PJ's to wear over Christmas, now is the time to do it! In the top picture I'm wearing the Jolie Slogan Lounge top with the matching Joanie Black and White Striped Lounge Pants. I love anything striped so these are a winner for me and they've currently got 50% off so you can get them both for only £15 - wowza!!
In the second image, Bethany and I are getting cosy in our Emily Luxury Fleece Hooded Robes which are quite possibly the softest thing I've ever felt! So so comfortable. It's also available in four colours. Bethany is also wearing the cute Pop Art Pug Print Lounge Top and matching Tessa Pop Art Pug Print Lounge Pants which are just adorable for anyone who loves pugs!! Again, this set has 50% off in the sale and is now only £15 for the set!! Finally, we're both wearing the cutest slippers - Bethany's are the Novelty Pink Rabbit Slippers and mine are the Novelty Penguin Slippers. These are reduced from £12 to only £8 in the sale!!
Finally, in the other images, we're both wearing the Bo Soft Lace Lounge Top and matching Blair Soft Lace Lounge Pants and again, this set is now half price in the sale. When I first saw this I have to admit I wasn't too sure about it as it's slightly see-through. However, I love how it looked when I put it on. I think this would be perfect for those nights in chilling with your other half. Who knew you could still look sexy in lounge wear?! It's maybe not one to wear whilst with your mum, dad or nan though!!
I hope you enjoyed this post guys and seeing some of South Beach's amazing Winter range!! You can check out their website here for lots more gorgeous goodies!! Do you love lazing around in cute lounge wear?
