A Trip to Champneys with Next

Adventures/ blogging/ Event

Last week thanks to the wonderful people at Next I got to to go on an overnight spa at Champneys Springs with some other lovely bloggers. I’ve been to quite a few events with Next now but this is the first without the kids and it was lovely to go away for the night and have some quality relaxing time with some very lovely people.  It was so nice just to feel like a person and not a Mum for a little while.

Guess the blogger 😉

We all sat around talking for the majority of the day and eating cake of course… although it did have beetroot in it so it wasn’t too unhealthy 😉 The cafe did the most amazing smoothies so it was just an absolute pleasure to sit and get to know some lovely bloggers and the lovely ladies from Next of course! There were 10 bloggers in total and only 2 that I had not met before so it was great to catch up and also meet two very lovely ladies (Tigerlilly Quinn and School Gate Style).

My room

My room

My room was absolutely lovely, very spacious and the bed was so comfy! I was a bit sad it didn’t have a double bed but seriously it was so comfy (and I was so drunk) that I didn’t need one!  The bathroom had lovely Champneys products in that smelt amazing! I have always loved Champneys products and hadn’t tried the citrus blush range before but now I am hooked!

Treats in our room

Next also left us a treat in our room. A gorgeous gift box containing a gorgeous candle, pair of pyjamas and a lovely scarf! We were really spoilt! These are all available to buy on the website, the PJ’s are so gorgeous and soft… you can see them at the bottom of this post (number 3) :O)

Taking 5 on my bed

For my treatments I had a session in the thalassotherapy pool which was lovely but I found the jets a bit too harsh for my skin a few times and then I had an amazing massage and a facial, after which I went back to my room for a snooze before dinner.

Dinner was a three course meal in the restaurant with lots of prosecco and wine. The company was just wonderful and the whole time I felt incredibly relaxed and happy… and a little drunk 😉


I mentioned above the new bloggers that I met so I just wanted to mention the other lovely ladies that I got to spend sometime with again; there were… The Ana Mum Diary, Love Chic LivingMummy Daddy Me, What Lottie Loves, A New Addition, Mummy Bird and Mummy Constant – a fantastic group of ladies! Pop over ot their blogs and read all about the #NextMums event too 🙂


Getting a gorgeous pair of pyjamas (my first since I became an adult I might add!) has really put me in the mood to buy lots of snugglies for the Winter. So I thought I’d share my top 3 pyjamas from the Next website… perfect for those long lazy weekends for snuggling up with the kids 🙂

  1. Next PyjamasNavy Check Pyjamas £25
  2. Grey Check Flannel Bottoms £16 & Faux Fur Knit Slipper Socks £15
  3. Pink Cosy Brushed Pyjamas £22

I cannot believe I haven’t owned any PJ’s since I was a child, I always wore nighties but I am now a changed woman! PJ’s all the way for me now!

A huge thanks to the lovely people at Next for taking us on our overnight spa and really spoiling us!! :O)

    Looks and sounds like you had an amazing time! Never been to a spa, it is one of those things on my list of things to do.
