We all need a little me time now and again don’t we, so when Debenhams got in contact with me and said they would like to help me treat my Mum I was over the moon. Blogging has given me some lovely opportunities, but how lovely to be able to treat my Mum too.

As Mothers Day is fast approaching (March 6th) we need to think of some ideas on how we can spoil our Mums. A day out, a lovely gift or a meal. Either way your Mum will be over the moon.

We headed off for a little shopping trip to see what we could find in Debenhams, we headed for the Southampton store as it is the largest store nearest to us and I knew we would have lots of choice!


We were given a gift card to spend in store, so my Mum came with a little piece of paper with a couple of little items written down! She wasn’t use to going on a shopping spree and buying what she wants!

Debenhams has a great range of items in store, from home, clothing, and beauty, there was so much for my Mum to choose from.

We ended up at Mums favorite beauty counter, Lancome. This is one brand that both my Mum and me have found we don’t react too. We were greeted by Carol, who was very helpful. She assisted us in looking for the mascara we wanted.


Mum had decided to look for a new foundation as well, but she has never used their foundation before so Carol got Mum to sit down and find the right one for her.


It ended up Mum got the full works and walked out with a whole new face of Lancome creams and make up!

Here is the BEFORE and AFTER


She was over the moon with the products, and because we purchased 2 products including a foundation we also got a free gift too. Along with some samples and brushes, Mum was super pleased and loved her makeover!


After her makeover, it was time for tea and cake! The Debenhams store in Southampton has a large restaurant, so it was a perfect to place to sit down. They had a nice selection of cakes and items to choose from.



With some money still to spend we carried on wandering around the store, I thought I would show you a few things I found that I thought would make a nice gift for your Mum.

Mum then spotted the handbag section! Apparently she needed a new handbag for the summer, Debenhams had started to bring in some lovely ones that would be lovely for the summer.

See that little blue one on the right? That’s the one she picked! Even better they had 20% off all handbags too. It is full of sections, zips, pockets and flaps to cover the sections. I loved it too!


We had a fantastic day together, shopping and cake….perfect! Below is all the fantastic Debenhams items Mum got for her Mothers Day treat, she was very spoilt and loved every minute of it!

All of this was £100.45, included in this was the tea and cake too.


*I was sent a gift card to go and treat my Mum to some Mothers Day gifts. However all words are honest and of my own.



  1. What a wonderful treat. I love Debenhams, they always have such a great range of products I could get lost in store for a few hours, at least. Love your Mums make up, she looks so happy with it. Great choice of handbag too!

  2. What a lovely treat! We do get nice opportunities as bloggers, but anything that can make our loved ones happy is always what makes me happiest too. Your mum looks so happy after her Lancome makeover and she really managed to get a lot of great stuff for £100.

    • She did really well didn’t she, she went away very happy with her purchases!

  3. You Baby Me Mummy Reply

    Aww she looks great! What a lovely treat for your mum. I would love to have a professional do my make up x

    • The lady told us to come back at anytime and have it done! Even said book in with her to come when you are going out somewhere nice! Get it done before hand, great idea isn’t it!

  4. Oh what a lucky mummy – it sounds as if she had the perfect day. The red lipstick really suits her- she looks fab! xx

    • Thank you, she felt very glammed up walking around the shops with a full face on!
