Its been a long hot summer, with no signs of slowing down (or cooling down) any time soon. Summer time doesn’t have to mean hot pants and crops tops every day. So trying to balance staying cool but staying covered can be tricky, so this is why I love my kimono from Quiz.

A steal at £10, and a must have for any summer wardrobe.

The Grill from Ipanema

Summer is definitely in full swing and, for those of you who couldn’t make it to Brazil this year, our friends at Ipanema have brought Brazil to us.

Team etail, along with a group of VIP etailPR bloggers, were invited to Ipanema’s ‘Grill from Ipanema’ Press Event in Covent Garden in association with Cabana Brasilian.

Bloggers: Ashley from The Camera’s Lying, Megan from The Briar Rose, Haley from Strangeness and Charm, Paula from This Girl Loves Chic, Rebecca from Right Up My Street, Emily from Emily Hearts


Events like this are the perfect way for bloggers to meet up and engage with brands, as well as meet our team and, after what seems like forever of daily emails – it was a long time coming.

Ipanema have set up a pop up beach in London’s Convent Garden Piazza, open from 28th June – 13th July, so there’s still this weekend to check it out.
