MoneySupermarket’s Big Night In

General Chit Chat

When I was approached recently by Money Supermarket to ask if I’d like to receive £50 to create my very own ‘Big Night In’ I jumped at the chance… You see it’s not very often that I stop working long enough to do something in an evening, I usually work until midnight and then roll into bed, so with £50 and this ‘excuse’ I knew exactly what I was going to spend it on…

I could have invited friends round for a meal – I didn’t

I could have created a romantic evening for me and my partner – I didn’t

I could have bought some movies and let the kids stay up for a movie night – I didn’t

Instead I was totally selfish, I waited until my other half was away on business and then I took myself to town,

First to Lush (OH hates Lush so I only buy when he is away) to stock up on some pampering goodies.

Then to Hotel Chocolat for some gorgeous chocolates.

Next  to a cute little gift shop to buy some gorgeous scented candles.

Lastly I bought a bottle of my favourite wine.

See what I mean? Totally and utterly selfish… but very much deserved!

Firstly I made sure the kids were fast asleep…

Then I ran a huge bubble bath with my Lush products, applied a gorgeous face mask, poured myself a large glass of wine, made sure my chocolates were in easy reach and then I sank down in the most glorious bath surrounded by candlelight!

It doesn’t get much simpler than that but only one word can describe my ‘big night in’ and that word is… Heaven!

A huge thank you to Money Supermarket for giving me £50 to treat myself – What would you have spent it on?

    Wow….that sounds like my idea of heaven, but I would have opted for Dairy Milk or Thorntons! I am woefully disadvantaged in that don’t have a bath in the house since renovations began two years ago (and married to a plumber no less). You will be relieved to hear that I do have a shower and albeit inside a rather lovely wetroom, the relaxing effect just isn’t the same.
