Copacabana Beachwear is no stranger to attending events, and this was one we simply could not miss. The Fitness by the Pool event hosted by Swimply, and Alison Barker @AllthingsAlison was all about fun in the sun, great vendors, and getting your sweat on with fitness classes throughout the day. Hosted at the luxurious Casa Blanca Vista estate, vendors like Derma-E, Sweat Cycle, and Mother’s Market & Kitchen attended equipped with gift bags, free samples, and yummy treats.
Fun in the Sun with the Copacabana Babe Squad
The Copacabana squad was there in full force, giving away goody bags filled with flower crowns, sunglasses (they were really needed), and brightly colored, handmade bracelets exclusively from our line. Each goody bag even had a coupon good for 30% off for those who attended the invitation only event. Brand ambassador and fitness model Joanna Cukierska @j.sugar was part of the girl squad, showing us how to wear the The Crown Bikini Top (best paired with
The Crown Bikini Bottoms) as a cute outfit you can wear by the pool. Her blue jean shorts and black belt matched perfectly with the trendy pineapples that covered the front of the bikini top. She even participated in the yoga class wearing the Pina Colada bikini top, proving our swimwear is versatile. Another Copacabana babe at the event was world traveling photographer Agi Gacek @1800_km, who was all smiles wearing The Harmony Reversible Bikini Set as she mingled with other attendees. She even paired the reversable lightweight pink and blue flower print halter top with a pair of high waisted black jean cutoffs and a belt – the perfect fun in the sun combo.
Agi even joined some of the exercise classes in it, making this two in one reversible bikini a marvelous investment for anyone’s closet. We loved how Kinga Anna @kinianika switched it up with different Copacabana bikini tops throughout the event. She started off with our very own Hamptons bikini top (it comes as a set!) to start the sunny morning off. She got ready for the yoga class by switching it up in the Ibiza top (don’t worry, it is also a 2-piece set), proving you can even workout in our pieces. She finished the day off in the super cute Martina top, which also doubled as a crop top.
Who doesn’t love a mid-day outfit change? We certainly do! Our Copacabana brand ambassadors were so stylish and gave the crowd great outfit ideas when cooling off near the pool. Even our own CEO Roxanna Faithful @RoxannalFaithful was spotted enjoying an ice cream while rocking the Las Pinas Bikini Set.
The Copacabana booth was a free spirit’s dream, decorated with wooden beads, small throw pillows, brightly colored straw rugs, a tree trunk decorated with white roses, and even a whimsical umbrella with dried palm leaves atop to give shade to those who were browsing. The bohemian inspired mirror set up became very popular for selfies and those who wanted to see how beautiful they looked in their new swimsuits. It was a tropical oasis filled with our best sellers for guests to shop.
Healthy Snacks from Mother’s Market & Kitchen
The always generous Mother’s Market for example, gave all who attended a huge reusable shopping bag with a big red heart. They gave us a shopping experience of a lifetime, with choices of refreshing, organic watermelon juice (our favorite!), gluten-free coconut oat cookies that are also vegan, and even
full-sized bags of Lesser Evil popcorn sprinkled with pink Himalayan salt. The Irvine-based healthy market chain even gave away Kind Bars and a sample of the healthy vitamin selection they carry.
Casa Blanca Vista Was the Perfect Location
The location itself was what we call a real staycation. Casa Blanca Vista was hidden in the hills of L.A. and was everything we had hoped for. The elegant white home was accented with black trim. The elaborate windows throughout the house made the exterior somewhere you would want to stay for the weekend – or much longer. Don’t get us started on how glamorous the clear aisles along the sides of the home were. The entire site was a place we could only see in our dreams aka absolutely magnificent. Think of a castle on the top of a hill overlooking the Hollywood sign and all the magnificent views Los Angeles has to offer.
Notice we haven’t even talked about the pool yet! The dark wood blanks on the raised plank were straight out of the movies, with the dark color complimenting the white sofas, adding to the overall aesthetic. With beautiful white outdoor furniture placed across it, the sunset was quite a sight. It had the perfect ambiance for the event, it was a perfect opportunity for those Instagram pictures too. As we followed the trail of beautiful stepping stones made from natural rock, we were greeted by a raised lounge area that could fit at least 20-30 guests alone.
It included a bar area where waters, bagels, and cream cheese were served for the early birds and eight stunning large windows that almost touched the ceiling. This was the main spot to be around, since Sweat Cycle hosted a spin class there along with all the other fitness classes throughout the day. The spin cycle company even had special cleat type shoes that locked into the peddles, assuring no slips occurred, making participants in the class feel safe and secure.
A Perfect Day Under the Cabana
Thanks to all the vendors and hosts that made this fun and memorable event happen, we saw new faces, old buddies, and new friends. The Fitness by the Pool event was a complete success, and we were thrilled to have attended. Stay tuned for our next event, we will be sure to give you all the deets as soon as we have them. Until then, stay cool in the hot summer sun!
