It’s not until I became a mum that I really understood why you might want (NEED) a Mothers Day! An entire day devoted to spoiling your Mum or ‘rock’ in my case!
I couldn’t have survived the past few years without my mum by my side. My mum is our go to for pretty much everything, from advice when we’re stuck, to weekly childcare, so I can work and date night childcare, so we can keep our sanity! She is the first at our door in an emergency and the last to leave when we need support! I am more thankful for my mums never ending support, than I could ever put into words! Really, there is no way I can think of to full thank her. Certainly the usually Mothers Day flowers and chocolates could never be enough!
So when I was invited to celebrate Mother Day at The Bentalls Center, Kingston, with the opportunity to treat my mum in a different way, I jumped at the chance!
We started the day with a visit to the Mac Makeup stand, where we were both given the most amazing make overs. The makeup artists spent hours with us making sure we not only looked our best, but also ensuring we had a look we felt comfortable with and could recreate at home!
We then headed of a little Lebanese lunch at Maison Du Mezze! Having never visited before I was absolutely blown away by the range of food and the amazing flavours. The service was exceptional, having no idea where to start our waiter was amazing at helping us select a range of dishes, giving us the full Lebanese food experience. We loved every dish we tried and I already can’t wait to visit again!
Once our stomachs were full, we decided to walk off our food with a leisurely wonder around the shops. My Mum and I never fail to find a few goodies when we head out shopping!
All in all it was a fantastic Mother’s Day treat and an amazing alternative to the traditional. And the best bit, not only did my mum and I both get throughly spoilt, we also got to spend an amazing day together and weren’t constantly interrupted by the boys!
