With Valentines day creeping up on us ever so soon I wanted to share with you a fun experience you can have with your bestie! It’s Selfridges version of ‘galentines’ day which is a perfect way to spend Valentines day with your bestie or even your mum! I experienced what they had to offer with my gal Chloe Helen Miles. We were in need of some pampering so this was a perfect way to spend the day! Selfridges take on a mate date night started off with a pampering session at Cowshed! We had the signature cowshed manicure and it was dream! Super relaxing that I tried not to fall asleep! It runs for about 45 minutes and you get a hand scrub included and massage which was the cherry on top.
Next stop on our pampering schedule was the Face Gym work out! Yup, it’s exactly how it sounds - a work out for your face! I unfortunately couldn’t have the full workout as I’m still recovering from my tooth operation but I still got to experience the facial and tried out the ultrasound machine! We also had the gold leaf mask put on and baked on our faces for 10 minutes. The thought of having 24k gold on your face was pretty cool to be honest and I loved how cool I looked! After the treatment, I definitely noticed my skin glowing and would happily walk out of Selfridges with no make up!
After our treatments, we headed over to the YSL beauty counter for our make overs. You guys know how much I love YSL so this was a perfect match for us both! I went for something more natural and glowing and Chloe went for her signature look. We played around with some golden browns and nudes for my face palette and I ended up loving the final look! If you visit the YSL counter be sure to ask for Marcio! He is incredible! YSL are also launching a new Volupte Tint-in-Balm exclusively for Selfridges! Make sure to get your hands on them! I’ve already tried them out and they offer great hydration to your lips and a bit of a tint to create the perfect ‘no-make’ make up look. My favourite shades are 1 and 10.
Last on the pampering schedule was a blow dry and treatment at
(located on the Body studio space). I’ve been for a treatment here before and really love the space. Really calm and open so you can relax whilst having your hair done. We ended up having the Fusio Dose treatment. Much needed after bleaching my hair. A specially created formula to transform your hair in 10 minutes!
We then headed up to the top floor where we were given a personal fragrance matching session with Bella Bellissima by Bella herself! It’s currently a mini pop up on the 4th floor that runs till 14th February and a perfect place to pick out a scent for your other half or yourself! Love yourself this Valentines day by discovering your perfect scent. I ended up choosing Velvet Santal . A timeless classic scent that could be worn day to night!
When we finished our perfume matching, we went for an early dinner at Aubaine which was much needed! You really do work up an appetite from all the pampering! We ended up ordering so much food we were stuffed! Also ate all the desserts! A perfect way to end our mate night!
For the night, we ended up staying at the London Edition thanks to Kiehls . Such a lovely surprise as well as they placed some pampering products around our room and also included some fancy chocolate! Of course we quickly changed into our pj's and put on some face masks!
We were also surprised with a treat box from Selfridges which included a 'I heart you' valentines day bag! A collaboration with Alphabet bags and includes goodies worth up to £118 but only cost £35 only at Selfridges. A perfect treat if you are stuck on what to get your girlfriend or bestie for Valentines day! The set includes products from Molton Brown, Nail Berry and Zelens. The box also included a cute personalised MOET champaign bottle that had a photo of me, Chloe and Dexter on it! Such a great little touch! This personalisation service is available in store till the 19th Feb!
Once again thank you Selfridges for such a great day full of pampering and great food. No one I'd rather share it with than Chloe! I'm hoping to coming back soon for another round but I think with my mum or sister this time!
