What a giggle! When we were at Blog Camp a few weeks ago we noticed that there is an unusual number of bloggers local to St. Albans. So, on our return we set up a Facebook group and vowed to get together more regularly. Once we hashed out diaries; with or without kids, evening or during the day we decided to have a simple night out of drinks and dinner.
But in the end, we were invited in by the lovely Juliet from Beautylase in St Albans, to promote their mummy and baby treatments on a Monday before we went to dinner. They have a treatment room on the ground floor, which has enough room for a pram and they allocate extra time for the treatments in case you have to tend to baby at no extra charges. I’ve been going to Beautylase for years and can highly recommend it and even though it looks posh the prices are very reasonable (Eyebrows threading from £12).
So the nine of us set upon them at 6.45, the store was kept open late just for us. We were asked to arrive without any make-up of nail polish, eeek! We were greeted with champagne and then the madness started. We were all whisked around for our treatments. I was truly impressed that in an hour they managed to do our eye-brows, nails, spray-tans and make-up. They also brought in a Sarah, a mobile hair stylist so Mirka and I managed to wangle our hair done.
We all looked gorgeous and were ready to hit the town! I must admit that I didn’t look so gorgeous when I staggered through the door at 1am but it was a great night. Thanks to all my fellow bloggers and to the team at Beautylase! As mums we don’t often get the chance to spoil ourselves so this was truly a great treat!
I can’t wait till the next time we get together!
