Getting a day off from my mummy duties don’t come around very often. So when I was contacted by the lovely team at Myriad PR and asked if I would like attend a blogger spa day at Oulton Hall, Leeds in honour of Asda’s new range of Little Angels nappies. I jumped at the chance.
I was really excited because I found out my blogger friend Lindsey from Newcastle Family Life was going. This meant that we would be able to have a good catch up while we were being pampered. We met up with 2 other bloggers Cat from www.rockandrollpussycat.co.uk and Debbie from www.countryheartandhome.com at the train station and traveled to Oulton Hall together.
When we arrived at the beautiful 18th century mansion, I was blown away by how grand and breathtaking it is. I knew about Oulton Hall before I was invited to this event, as it was one of the venues I had looked at for mine and hubby’s wedding and in my honest opinion the photos of this stunning hotel don’t do it justice. It is utterly stunning and I am gutted we decided against it. Maybe in future if we ever renew our vows.
I did take loads of photos but while I was there, I dropped my phone and smashing the screen. I got a replacement phone the next day and thought my pictures were saved to my iCloud account. Sadly they weren’t and are gone. I only have the pictures I shared on my instagram.
When we enter the lounge we were greeted by the amazing team who were hosting the event, as well as the representative who would be giving the presentation about the new range. We were one of first to arrive and decided to explore the grounds while everyone else.
The gardens and golf course are just as stunning and elegant as the mansion. Sadly the weather didn’t want to play and we soon had to go inside to escape the rain.
Once back inside we all settled down with glass of fizz and listened to the presentation. I found it really interesting learning about all the changes Asda have made to Little Angels nappy range. They have brought out some new products as well as improving on the best sellers. The new range will cover you from bump to birth and right up to when your little one is dry at night.
These nappies are specially designed to be extra delicate on newborn babies and contain Dreamskin technology. This means that the nappies will help protect and sooth your newborns delicate skin. They also contain a wetness indicator to let you know when your baby needs changing, as well as Little Angels sizing up guide. The nappies go from size 0 to 3 and offer that little bit extra TLC for you special little bundles.
The Comfort Dry range is Asda’s best selling nappy. It has been proven to be as absorbent as the leading brands but at a fraction of the cost. I have bought these nappies myself and I must admit they are good quality and cost under £4 pre pack. These nappies also contain the handy sizing up guide and come in size 3 to 6+. Just so you know the + is in regards to the nappy being more absorbent and not a bigger size.
Little Angels Supreme Protection and the softest and most absorbent nappy in the whole range. This make them prefect for night time wear because the offer 12 hours of dryness and are extremely comfy and soft of baby’s skin. These nappies don’t have to be just worn at night time. They have expertly designed stretchy side and a secure back elastic to help the nappy stay secure as your baby moves around and grows into and adventurous toddler.
Just like the rest of Little Angels range these nappies have the sizing up guide, as well as a colour coded waist band to help parents know when its time to move up a size. They come is sizes 3 to 6+
Little Angels Peppa Pig First Pants are a fun and colourful way to get you little ones use to the idea of potty training. They perform just like a nappy but have to be pulled up like pants instead of front fastening. This is why First Pants are a great way to help your little one make the step up from nappies.
Each First Pants contains absorbent gel beads which absorb up to 30 times their own weigh. Giving you 12 hours of dryness meaning First Pants can be used for both day and night. They come in size 4, 5 and 6 and are aimed at toddlers aged 12+ months.
The Peppa Pig design is to help your child engage and enjoy their new pants. Plus with every promotional pack of Peppa Pig First pants you purchase in-store or online, you could win the complete Peppa Pig DVD collection, worth more than £40! This competition started in August 2016 and each month a lucky winner will be picked until March 2017.
After the presentation everyone was put in to group and given times for their spa appointment. As the first group left, the rest of us enjoyed afternoon tea and chatted amongst ourselves. It was so lovely to be able to have a conversation with other grown up with being pulled on, climbed on or interrupted a dozen times.
Soon it was time for our spa appointment, each one of us was given a back, shoulder and neck massage, before getting a choice between a manicure or pedicure.
I choose to get my nails done a lovely pink colour to match the dress I was wearing. Afterwards we went into the relaxation room and met up with some other bloggers. It was utter bliss to be able to lay still in a peaceful room* and just relax without having to get up and get something for someone or pick up toy and change nappies. I was a little sad when I looked at the time and realised the event was nearly over.
*Well as peaceful as it’s going to get with a room full of bloggers all chatting. I think we even drove a few club members to leave due to noise.
Before we left the wonderful team gave everyone some massive goodie bags filled with Little Angels products to try out. Also in the bags there was a lovely fluffy robe and some spa treats for me.
All in all it was a great event and I am so honoured I was invited along to enjoy a much needed day of rest and relaxation. We have loved using the Supreme Protection nappies and LM loves the Peppa Pigs First pants. Even if it has encouraged/enabled her to start streaking around the house more.
