Sparkling Together for 30 Years; Marc Jacobs for Diet Coke Launch

Last night I was at one of the most fun events, the craic was had.
I attended the Marc Jacobs Diet Coke launch for 'Sparkling Together for 30 Years'  in BT2 on Grafton Street, Dublin.
I'm sure you have all seen the add with the undeniably sexy gardner(video at the end of the post if you haven't). Well he of course was in attendence so we all (eventually) worked up the courage to get our photo's taken with him oh and of course he is even better looking in person (swoon).
The event had people going round with the pretty Diet Coke bottles(with red straws no less) designed by Marc with the idea of the 80's, 90's and 00's in mind and the most amazing, yummy cocktails too which I will admit I took full advantage of.
There were also canapé's but I didn't try any so can't comment on that(I was told they were lovely)
Every so often four models would appear from what seemed like nowhere show casing the summer collection which is now available in BT2(I was having an ole goo). To be honest they kind of freaked me out, standing there like manquins while copious amounts of people took their photo.. but they looked well and I have to say I do really like the look of the collection. Socks and sandles seems to be in again(was it ever?) just so long as their heel's!

There was a photo booth there and we all had great fun with it, I think they guy got a little fed up with our antics but we all had a great time!

Before we knew it 8 had rolled around, we were getting our coats and lovely goodie bags before heading into the night for an evening of giggles and conversation(and just a little more alcohol).
All in all I had a fantastic time. It was great seeing my lovely blogger friends and having a fab night out! I love the design Marc has come up with and am excited to see the cans all over the place. I for one will never be opening the bottles and will keep them on display for ever!

All the best,
Alice May xx

ps my camera lens decided to break after I took 2 photo's(picture's of the drinks) so the rest of the night bar Donna's(NotJustInside) photo at the top are all iphone. I used a different lens this morning to take the rest of the photo's. Sorry about that folks!


  1. Looks like a lot of fun! The models appearing out of nowhere would freak me a little as well!

    1. It was! We were standing directly infront of the box they stand on and they come up right behind you ... I nearly jumped out of my skin with fright!

  2. Aww sounds like it was such a fun event! And a good looking hunk certainly helps:P
