When Boats Ibiza HQ received a call from reputable Ibiza concierge service, Taste Ibiza, asking if we’d like to take 5 fabulous British bloggers out on a fashion shoot with Quiz Clothing, everyone got a bit excited. The girls were excited to get the verdict on latest fashion trends from the Quiz team’s 5 glamorous British fashion & beauty bloggers: Arianna Ajtar, Lucy Gann, Ellie O Donnell, Daisey O Donnell and Jess Hunt. All well-known influencers back in the glorious motherland and hey, a few tips from these ladies can go a long way on a girl’s quest for the perfect eyelash and on-trend hemline. The boys were excited at the prospect of a swimwear shoot. A friendly scuffle almost broke out on who would be Captain that day 😉
Destination: Cala Conta
It was a flawlessly beautiful morning in the Port of San Antonio when we all met for the first time at Rita’s Cantina, a few minutes before their luxury Ibiza yacht charter. Their chosen vessel was our gleaming, British made 47′ Sunseeker Camargue. Good choice!
We cracked open the cava and off we sailed towards Cala Conta, passing by Cala Bassa and Cala Tarida on the way. The vibrant colour of the Balearic Sea around the coastline there would be the perfect backdrop, said Captain Chris, for a photo shoot. He was absolutely correct. Laying down anchor safely, far away from the precious Posidonia seagrass, the Boats Ibiza fashion shoot got underway.
Live broadcasts on social media
The bloggers were great fun. The vibe was relaxed and super friendly, as the girls modelled their different outfits, took selfies galore and made Instagram stories for their hundreds of thousands of social media fans. Quiz Clothing’s in-house photographer, Radek, leapt around the Sunseeker, getting professional shots for their latest range whilst the girls laughed, danced and had an absolute ball.
Living the dream
We chatted to Arianna, from Bolton in Lancashire, asking how she’d got into fashion and beauty blogging and amassed such a huge fan base – almost 200K on Instagram alone – in just a couple of short years.
I just started posting photos for fun and had a few hundred likes, but then somebody really famous starting to like my Instagram posts and suddenly, I was getting loads of new fans. By the time I hit 3000 likes, my fanbase exploded. Now it’s non stop!
Wow. We were impressed. All of the bloggers were not only beautiful, glamorous and media-savvy, but they were friendly, polite and down-to-earth girls. The Quiz Clothing team, Amy, Kirsten and Radek were a pleasure to work with too. A dream team out on a luxury Ibiza yacht on a perfect, calm, sun-drenched morning. Does life get any better?!
After a couple of live Snapchat and Facebook broadcasts, where fans sent in questions for our superstar blogging guests, we set off back for the port, in time for Arianna to leap into a taxi and jet off to her next photo shoot, in Marbella. A real life testimony to living the dream!
