As a busy working mum of three I am always on the go, my to do list is never ending and there is always one thing at the bottom of the list that rarely gets the attention it deserves and that is – ME TIME.
I tell everyone I speak to how important it is for a parent to take a little time for themselves to recharge, relax and be the best parent they can be. Yet I find my own advice hard to take. There always seems to be something else more important that I should be doing.
When Robin James invited me down to their gorgeous salon for an appointment with the new creative director and stylist to the stars, Daniel Jordan; I thought here it is my chance for a child free couple of hours to feel just a little bit pampered.
I used to be a regular at the Robin James salon in Poole many moons ago. I loved my monthly trips to get my hair retouched or even visit the spa for a little massage or facial, it was always my pay day treat. Then after one child trips became less frequent and after baby two and then three my me time fell to the bottom of the list and I forgot how lovely it was to just spend a couple of hours with my head in a magazine while someone else made my hair look fabulous!
So with that in mind and the thought of not actually having to wash and blow-dry my own hair for a change, off I headed to meet the team and remember what it felt like to be pampered again.
Robin James is an Aveda lifestyle salon; they are dedicated to creativity and providing the highest level of customer service and they really do just that. The team are not only incredibly talented at what they do they are so friendly and welcoming it’s the type of salon you can’t help but want to go back to.
I felt in such great hands with Daniel doing my hair, I don’t think there is anything that man doesn’t know about hair. He made me feel completely at ease and offered great tips and advice throughout our consultation. We decided on a little trim with a big bouncy blow dry.
My hair felt amazing afterwards it really goes to show how important the products are that we use on our hair. Aveda products combine natural ingredients with science to make them incredible, my hair felt so much lighter after using them I hadn’t realised until then just how weighed down my hair had been by product.
Now if only I can get my hair to look this good everyday! Thanks so much to Robin James for having me. I wont be leaving it so long next time.
As you guys know I am vlogging everyday in Feb so there is a little video as well! Enjoy.
