8am: breakfast of poached egg with avocado on toast and kale smoothie.
9am: put on latest must-have dress from Dolce and Gabbana’s Spring/Summer collection
11am: mani and pedi followed by brunch (more avocado).
1pm: peruse the latest resort wear before settling on a couple of darling Mara Hoffman swimsuits for my trip to Raja Ampat (Bali is so last year don’t you know).
6pm: dinner at Ormer Mayfair, their taster menu is exquisite.
11pm: bedtime in my new Egyptian cotton bedding.
This is a typical day for me, a day dream that is! However, as lovely as it sounds, especially that poached egg, sometimes the best way to spend your time is with great friends, at fab places right on your doorstep.
This is exactly what I did last weekend. It had been gloriously sunny all week until Saturday, the day I’d planned a trip to Liverpool city centre to redeem my Beauty Bazaar reward, when it clouded over like only our good ol’ British weather can, not that this could stop me! As the saying goes when life gives you lemons, make lemonade, or in this case when Harvey Nichols gives you a reward, enjoy champagne!
I love the atmosphere in the centre of Liverpool, lots of people and different sights and sounds without that overwhelming feeling you can sometimes get in large cities. As for the weather, the Spring breeze and cloudy sky was a great chance to incorporate brighter colours with different fabrics to create a cosy layered look that was still light enough for this season.
After a quick little shopping trip, in which I picked up some fab goodies from TK Maxx, including the Too Faced Cat Eyes eyeshadow palette, and my gorgeous Love Affair with Beauty Babe snapped up a £2 black bikini top from Primark to embellish with feathers at home (clever right!?), we power walked our way to the one and only Beauty Bazaar.
Harvey Nichols reward system, really is the bees knees. Every time you shop, you receive points which get turned into rewards at the end of every season. You pick your favourite, and redeem it when you want. Simple! Previously, I have had manicures at Nails Inc, and vouchers to spend on anything throughout Harvey Nichols. This time I chose champagne for two which was great, as it was a lovely chance to share the rewards of my spending addiction with a friend!
After the lovely glass of bubbly, and a final top up with Jouer Long-Wear Lip Crème Liquid Lipstick in Praline we were good to continue our fun day out!
