NOVEMBER GIVEAWAY

But first a little story as to why I have chosen this giveaway............

When I began my career as an air hostess I initially worked the domestic and European routes, this meant that  I was only away from home for 2 or 3 nights in a row, I then ventured into the world of long haul.  My first long haul experience was a 5 day trip to Antigua.  Now, I have to confess that I am not a fan of the heat or the beach and this destination was my idea of hell, I am much more of a city girl and prefer to be surrounded by shops rather than palm trees.

Anyway, by day two I was sitting in my room crying from sheer boredom, the rest of the crew were either sunbathing, participating in water sports or trying not to kill themselves on a zip wire ride.  I would only see the rest of the crew when we met up in the bar in the evenings for dinner and cocktails, even that was boring as we were nowhere near the town.  However, I recall one hysterical evening when an innocent  game of Twister turned into Naked Twister, thank god I was just a spectator and not a participant, let's just say I saw a lot more of my crew members than I needed to on that night!!

Anyway, I decided that on my next long haul trip I would go more prepared, and so Jude's mini pamper hamper was born.  On my long haul beach destinations I would pack a hair colour, fake tan, face masks, hair masks, manicure/pedicure equipment, bath products and candles.  On arrival at the hotel I would light my candles and the Jude pamperthon would begin.  I would basically turn my hotel room into my own little spa and pamper myself to within an inch of my life, I would also perform manicures and pedicures on my balcony for other crew members.

I hung up my wings 2 years ago but whenever I go away I still take a mini pamper hamper with me to turn the hotel room into MY room.  I have decided to make up a special Jude's Mini Pamper Hamper for one of my lovely followers, it will contain travel sizes of some of my favourite products to allow you to pamper yourself whether you are going away for a weekend or just staying at home.

To enter this giveaway you need to do 2 little things.......

  27. Already follow and have RT'ed!

    I always make the time, at least 1x a week to light the candles, grab a book and relax in the bath. I don't have any real favourites but LOVE Ren Rose Oil bath, it's expensive but a whole bottle lasts a year. Am also a HUGE fan of the Sanctuary range of goods, lovely smell and do the job. Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream does so many things but my top tip has to be Nars Bronzer which even if you have had no sleep makes you look like a million dollars!

    Our shower was 'out of bounds' due to the bathroom floor leeking through to our kitchen recently, so I took a bath, I didn't wana as I usually avoid them in favour of a quick shower.
    By the end of the bath I was like 'LOOOOVVVEEEED that, want another one asap!'.
    All I used was the same as B4kersgirl some bubble bath (that I nabbed from my housemate ;-)
