Mothers Day treats & THAT Disney inspired jacket.

Mothers Day treats & that Disney inspired jacket.

On Thursday evening, me & my lovely Mum were invited along to the Metquarter in Liverpool for an early Mothers Day event, hosted again by the guys at Sassoon Salon, who I'd only recently visited a couple of weeks ago (read about my fab experience here). It was pretty much an evening of Prosecco, cake, styling and little beauty treats. What could be more perfect for Mothers Day?

We had Sassoon offering consultations and styling tips, Urban Calm giving us all the best mini massages and Illumination LED facemasks, and the girls at Illamasqua offering express treatments through the evening.

My favourite part of the event though (apart from the cupcakes from Patisserie Valerie... these were incredible omg) was when celebrity stylist Martine Alexander picked out some of her favourite pieces from around the centre. Let's just say, if my Mum hadn't have been there to stop me, I'd have probably bought half of the rail, including this to-die-for Beauty & the Beast embroidered jacket from the MinkPink and Disney collection, and these amazingly beautiful Kurt Geiger heels. 

It was such a lovely evening being able to chat to all the familiar faces at Sassoon, catching up with local bloggers and their Mums, and learning about what else there is to offer in the Metquarter. Events like this are my favourite, smaller events where you can really chat to everyone properly, have great conversations and network with bloggers & brands in a really relaxed atmosphere that's totally beneficial to everyone. 

Everyone at the event was super lovely and friendly, and I loved being able to give my Mum a peek inside the weird and wonderful world of blogging and events. Even if it was just to show her it isn't just me who has to take photo's of all of the food before anyone's allowed to touch it! 

What do you have planned for Mothers Day?



  1. I kinda really want the beauty and the beast jacket (even though this post isn't about that!). I love the Metquatrer - I definitely need a trip to liverpool again soon xx

  8. The midi bodycon dress , in the whole party, was enough of a dream come true to permanently lodge itself in the minds and hearts of people across the party. This dress was everything it should have been.
