Did you know that 67% of women have difficulty finding the time or money to treat themselves??? I am pleased to say I am NOT in that category as I strongly believe that as important my kids and HAW are, I too am also important, I need treats, I need spoiling and if I want to have a long soak in the bath with a good book to chill out, then I am going to make the time to do so!
Treating yourself doesn't have to cost a penny, one of my biggest treats is when HAW takes the kids out for the afternoon and I can do as I please. Snooze, blog, pamper, usually all three. I think that everyone needs headspace and I am very good at making the time for some "me" time.
I think a lot of mums fall into the trap of putting everyone else first and then almost become a martyr to the cause....."oh I am so tired, I couldn't be bothered to put make up on" or "I put everyone first, I don't have time to treat myself". "Go to the cinema, are you kidding me, I don't have time".
You get my drift.
Anyway, last week I was invited to the Savoy for afternoon tea......
The objective was to find out more about Boots Treat Street. Now, I have to be honest here and say that I was vaguely aware of what it was, but not actually 100% sure what it actually was. We were treated to a make over by the wonderful No7 make up artist Brenda, who gave me a very smoky eyed look. I LOVED it but HAW thought I looked like a groupie!
Boots treat street is an amazing opportunity for us mums to treat ourselves, Boots have signed up over 60 partners which include some of my favourites such as The White Company, Joules, Boden and Monsoon. The way it works is simple, you sign your advantage card up to treat street and then just shop online in the usual way. For every £1 you spend you get 1 point.
To me it is a no brainer, if you use any of these companies online anyway then you may as well go via Boots Treat Street and rack up some extra points. Because as you know my friends, points equal prizes!!!
There are also offers that are exclusive to treat street that can be seen here Summer Deal Festival these will run until the 3rd July but keep your eye on the site as it is updated regularly.
Peace and Love
