You may have read my blog post back in September when I went to the Friends of Mahiki end of summer party. I had the privilege of being invited back in January for another event hosted by Friends of Mahiki in aid of The Seaver Foundation. The Seaver Foundation is an amazing cause that changes the lives of isolated children both in the UK and abroad.
One thing you can always count on at a friends of Mahiki party is that you will spend the evening being completely spoilt. When we arrived we were welcomed with one of Mahiki’s signature pina coladas served in a pineapple. The quality of Mahiki cocktails are incredible and if you are out as a group the legendary pirate chests are a necessity.
At the event the girls from Go Get Glitter had a glitter station to ensure everyone left sparkling. All of their glitter products are both vegan and cruelty free. I opted for silver glitter around the eye which stayed on for the whole evening but was easily washed away with warm water. The Braid Bar which is usually based in Selfridges, London also had a pop up braiding station. I’m not usually one to experiment much with my hair so it was a great opportunity to opt for something new. I went for the Cara 2.0 inspired by Cara Delevingne’s side braid. Whilst braiding isn’t something I would usually go for, I loved the look and it was more wearable than I’d imagined. The two combined looks would be perfect for summer and I am looking forward to trying them out again during festival season.
After spending some time soaking in the Tiki atmosphere and enjoying our Pops Moscow mule popsicles. We watched some expert cocktail making by the Mahiki guys and then sadly it was time to call it a night. We were given amazing goodie bags from the event that have introduced me to so many new brands. I’m looking forward to trying them all and reporting back to you guys! Thankfully, we were given loads of health food samples from graze, Deliciously Ella and Rude Health so I don’t need to panic too much about breaking my January health kick.
Thankfully I didn’t have to say goodbye to Mahiki for too long as I visited again soon for a friends 21st. If you have a chance to visit Ciroc Pineapple Beach Hut in Mahiki do. It has a jet ski simulator and karaoke booth, because who doesn’t love karaoke!?
Note – Thank you to Mahiki for the use of their photos in this post.
