Blogger Night with 2COP x Lumingerie

8 Feb

Even after blogging for two years there are still some things that surprise me – one of them being the vibrant blogger scene in my hometown Oulu. It’s a small town so getting together is rather easy, there are not that many places to go or things to do. Luckily, bloggers are a creative sort of bunch and we have come up with multiple events during the past few months and as I see myself as a pretty active part of our little group, I decided to throw my gals a little lingerie party. After I had visited the storage of Lumingerie, a Finnish lingerie online store, we decided to team up for a proper fitting event to teach our blogger gals a bra tip or two.

Lumingerie and 2COP have worked together for a good year and a half now which I am super grateful for – this online store knows what it’s doing and is dedicated to educating women on good bra fit. They have a lovely selection of British, Polish and American brands which are probably rather familiar to you as well; Curvy Kate, Panache and Gorsenia are just some of the quality brands Lumingerie offers in their selection. We handpicked a few favourites with Mervi and decided to show our blogger guests some young fashion-forward styles for the upcoming spring season.

We started off the evening with some “bubbly” (which was more like lemonade) and then proceeded to tell about the key products we had picked for the night: the Panache Sports bra, Curvy Kate “Luxe Strapless” and Cleo “Jolie” which were modeled by my lovely sister Emma (the makeup and hair is done by yours truly). Emma usually wears a size 65D which, as you can see, is actually quite a small size as opposed to the dreaded porn star boobs that D’s are usually perceived as. I was glad to see so many of my fellow bloggers’ faces litting up: there were clearly some a-ha moments happening that night.

At the end we started measuring the girls and what a big surprise, all of them were actually D+. Even the gals who warned me off right from the start that they weren’t too well-endowed ended up measuring 30D or similar with some girls jumping from A and B-cups to D and F. The most important lesson of the night? The band is related to the cup meaning if you are small all over, you are very likely to be a 28 or 30  D+. I don’t mean to say there aren’t girls that wear eg 28B/C but the average Finnish girl is likely to be a D+ gal, there’s no going around it.

The girls left with new bra sizes, some goodie bags from Lumingerie and a big smile on their faces which was the best reward for me from that particular night. I look forward to more blogger meet-ups in the future as I would love to get to know these girls better! Big thanks to everyone who attended, our lovely model and Lumingerie who all made this night such a special one 🙂 If you want to check out the other bloggers who attended, here are links to their (mostly Finnish) blogs…

Oulun blogi-ilta – Blogger’s Party @ Oulu

8 Oct

Moikka kaikille! Pitkästä aikaa taas postausta, jossa on vähän suomenkieltäkin mukana. Tosi oudolta kyllä tuntuu kirjottaa omalla kotimaisella, kun englannista on jo muodostunut se tärkein kirjotuskieli. Tällä hetkellä teen myös kandia enkuksi niin syvimmät pahoitteluni jos postaus sisältää vähän kapulakieltä!

Tosiaan aattelin kirjottaa pienen postauksen meidän oululaisten bloggaajien blogi-illasta – meillä kun ei yleensä tällaisia juttuja niin paljon järjestetä ja ihan viime hetkellä itsekin päätin tulla mukaan tutustumaan uusiin ihmisiin ja mässäämään valtavaa määrää kaikkien ihanien ihmisten tuomia herkkuja. Ilta järjestettiin siis Starry Eyesin Sitan luona, joka oli hommannut meille kaikkea mukavaa illan onnistumista varten – oli herkkuja Cloetalta ja pienet meikkiyllärit Lumenelta. Kaikki muut olivat myös nähneet efforttia ja tuoneet paikalle vaikka mitä, muun muassa sushia ja brownieta. Itse pyöräytin ei-niin-oikeaoppiset raakasuklaapatukat, jotka kieltämättä onnistuivat hyvin.

Juoruilun, somettamisen (!) ja kuvaamisen lomassa kerkesi kyllä tutustua niin ihaniin ihmisiin ja toivonki että saan näitä tytsyjä ja yhtä miekkostakin nähdä pian uudestaan (Jarnoa näin kyllä jo tänään Hullareilla, yhessä päiviteltiin sitä miten kuuma ja ahasta oli!). Tutustelun jälkeen suuntasimme 1bariin, jonka Sita oli saanut yhdeksi sponsoriksemme. Osa bloggaajista oli ilmoitettu baariin ihan etukäteen ja ykkösen jengi oli suunnitellut meille sitten ihan omat nimikkodrinkit – tosi hauska idea ja mahtavasti toteutettu, vaikka paikka olikin reilun 20 ihmisen köörille vähän ahtaanpuoleinen.

Kun oltiin istuttu pöytään, 1barin Taneli esitteli meille muutaman klassikkodrinkin, joihin nimikkodrinkkimme perustuivat. Omani sisälsi seuraavia iloliemiä:

  • 1 cl Dijon Cassis Liqueur
  • 1 cl Licor 43 (Vanilla)
  • 10 cl Prosecco sparkling wine

Elikkä siitä vain drinkkiä väsäämään jos omistat karkkihampaan (drinkki on nimittäin aikas makea)! Lopuksi meikätyttö hiippaili pois paikalta vähin ääniin, sillä olin ollut jo baarissa parina edeltävänä iltana. Kunnon juoppo! No ei, mulla on vaan vilkas sosiaalinen elämä. Sori muuten kaikille, kun en heippoja edes sanonut, olette kuiteski kaikki ihania!

 In English: Hi and sorry for a whole post mainly in Finnish! I just thought this might be more interesting to my Finnish readers and fellow Finnish bloggers so I wanted to make the post more accessible to them. However, I will tell you what this is all about! I attended a blog event in my hometown Oulu last Saturday and had a blast with over twenty bloggers. We had all prepared an array of snacks for the evening and our lovely host Sita had arranged us some sweets and makeup goodies. 

After getting to know each other we headed to a local cocktail bar called 1bar. 1bar (or just One) is known for their delicious cocktails and we were provided with a free round of drinks and some of us even got their signature drinks done by our bar host, Taneli. So if you wanna taste a bit of 2COP, try the recipe above 😉 

All in all the evening was fantastic and I can’t wait to meet these lovelies again! xx
