Tigerlilly Quinn: A little treat

A little treat

The other day an email popped into my inbox to invite me to a spa day with the folks at NEXT. I of course took them up on the offer and on Thursday I arrived at the luxurious Champneys for a day full of pampering with a bunch of other blogging mums!

We were actually not allowed our phones in most of the areas of the spa which was an odd feeling for me. I am really aware that I am a little too attached to my phone and being connected to the internet although I always justify it as my work is so internet based. I have to admit I struggled to switch off and relax as any child free time is usually spent trying to get as much done as possible. I've realised that 'doing nothing' certainly is a skill and not one I've quite mastered yet!


We were treated to some amazing pampering treatments and then in the evening a lovely meal and chance to really chat and catch up with some lovely women. An absolute treat and one I feel very lucky to have attended, thanks Next!

One of the girls from Next was wearing the most amazing skirt and it inspired me to put together a little outfit from their new range. I'm really tempted to get them all if I'm honest!



1, Faux Fur Jacket*
2, Yes Weekend bag *
3, Grey Ankle Boot*
4, Midi Pleat Skirt *
5, Tassel Bangle*

p.s the skirt totally just fell in my online shopping bag shhh don't tell Tom!

I find it really hard to switch off from my phone too. I think it's because I don't see my work as work but fun/social too but it is good to disconnect I guess. I can really see you in that skirt - well-played!

Oh wow sounds like you had an amazing time - nothing better than a little bit of pampering, especially when your planning a weather - nice to take your mind of things. I agree too I'm a little bit more attached to my phone that I should be

I'm all for a good old house tour! What a gorgeous kitchen ...love your little bits and pieces. This is the kind of kitchen you want to sit in and spend an hour gazing around... Not a walk through at all!
