Yummy Mummy Morning - Molton Brown Giveaway

I saw a post in the British Mummy Bloggers forums about a month ago - it was in the Northwest Mums (and Dads) group - inviting us to a Yummy Mummy Morning at the Lowry Outlet Mall in Manchester.

Curious, I read the post and as soon as I the words 'MOLTON BROWN' and 'GOODY BAG' I immediately responded!



To me Molton Brown is a bit like Brad Pitt - gorgeous, rich and a little bit out of my league. Being a mummy on a budget, I have never been able to treat myself to such wonderful luxuries, so this was an opportunity that I could not afford to miss.

I booked a place for me and my mum to go and on Wednesday this week, 3 generations of our family (that's my mum, me and Ellissia) tackled the M58, the M6 and the M62 in search of pampering and goodies!

We had to arrive between 11am and 2pm but being a new mummy we only actually managed to arrive at ten minutes to two - you know how it is!

We were treated to tea and biscuits and I was given a choice of 4 different ranges to choose from for my hand and arm massage - inspiring, relaxing, blissful or nurturing. I opted for Relaxing Yuan Zi and it was amazing - it chilled me out and gave me some much deserved pampering - even if I do say so myself!

When we were leaving we were handed a goody bag each.




I was like a child at Christmas and couldn't wait to see what was inside...


I wasn't disappointed - 5 gorgeous mini Molton's!! And guess what? My mum has kindly donated her goody bag so I can give it away to one of you lucky peeps!

    As we are always rushing during the week, our week-ends are precious and we usually spend them together and choose carefully what to do as we don't like wasting our family quality time. Relaxing with my family could be preparing a meal together and sit down in our dining room, and then watching a nice family movie together or planing a nice day out.

  60. The kids are getting older now (13, 12, 11 & 9), so it can be hard to pin them all down for a family night, we do like having a 'movie' night or getting the pool table out.
    Hubby has said we'll all play scrabble tonight which I haven't played with the kids since they were little, I've a feeling I may lose. hehehe..
