Eyelash Extensions at Spruce Moose and an Exclusive 40% Off Discount Code

Eyelash Extensions at Spruce Moose

The lovely folks at Spruce Moose in Harrogate invited me into their fab treatment rooms lasts week to try out their individual lashes treatment.

The gorgeous space they have at Westgate House, at the site of the Everyman Cinema, opposite Pizza Express, is really quite large, the treatment rooms are over two floors, with lots of space and a feeling of relaxed luxury.

Relaxing Treatment

I’ve never tried lash extensions before so was a little unsure what to expect but the lovely Katie set my ease reassuring me that it was a relaxing treatment, and she was totally right.

They simply attached individual false eyelashes to the base of my existing lashes with a dot of glue. The precision in the placing is key and Katie did a marvellous job with mine.

All I had to do was lay still for around 45 minutes with my eyes closed – pretty ideal when you’re a Mama if you ask me!

Amazing Results

Katie placed a strip-pad under my eye (I guess so she could see the lashes better) and set about gently applying the lashes.

Once finished I was amazed, she showed me the finished look in the mirror and it was such a transformation, I was really surprised what a difference it had made!

My eyes were lots more defined and it made the shape of them so much nicer too, plus it was really natural, and they didn’t look ‘false’ at all to me. Just longer and lusher than before.

Simple Aftercare

The aftercare treatment is really simple too, just don’t use oil based eye-make-up remover near them and be careful not to rub them, else they will come out.  They’re expected to last two weeks, but will start falling out, just as normal eyelashes would over that time.

They’d be perfect for a weekend away or a special occasion, although some people have them all the time, a little like getting their nails done. I’m really tempted as I know I’ll miss mine once they’re gone!

Looks Amazing and Saves Time

Plus they have the advantage of saving you time both morning and night, as there’s no need for mascara (though you can use it if you want – I haven’t) and therefore no need to take off the eye make-up at night either! Double bonus!

I like that they make me feel like I have some make-up on, without having any make-up on and instantly make me look more awake! A real bonus as a sleep deprived Mama!

Overall, I really loved the treatment it was relaxing to have done and the benefits were really impressive.

The Importance of a Spa Break

Last week I had the totally luxury of heading off on a Spa break for a night with one of my besties and while it’s always great to catch up with friends, nothing beats doing it in the comfort of a cosy dressing gown!

Titanic Spa in Huddersfield

We went to Titanic Spa in Huddersfield which was amazing, it’s been open 10 years but it’s the first time either of us had been and it was simply perfect!

Spa Facilities

The facilities were spot on, the relaxation room was heavenly and the treatments were tip top!

Treatment rooms

The food was impressive too – I enjoyed a gorgeous pan fried seabass cooked to perfection and we stayed in their apartments for the night, which were huge,  complete with a full kitchen, lounge and balcony space!

Amazing Food

But the best thing by far about going on a Spa break is that head space you get from it! While it’s brilliant to go away on a girlie break to sunny climes or head off on a city break to hit the bars and shops what’s really nice when you’re a mum is just to simply be! And of course have a decent night’s sleep!

Apartment bedrooms

The two of us chatted about this, that and the other, lost hours in small talk over what was driving us nuts most about our Smalls at the moment and set the world to rights. No other break gives you the time to do that, without external interruptions from anything.

The other benefit is, of course, the treatments which mean you can actually lie down, legitimately, in the middle of the day – is there anything nicer than that? And you come out feeling totally relaxed, unwound and chilled (and a little fresher of face – bonus). A Mama’s paradise!

Apartment life

One thing I always notice when I go away on a short break is that I’m a much nicer person to be around when I come back. I have that slight holiday air about me, which means everything in the world looks a bit rosier, I feel a little bit more like me and the worries I came in with aren’t as huge when I leave!

You can not underestimate the importance of spending time with the friends in your life, children and families take over and you can easily loose a sense of who you are. It’s important to maintain friendships and share what’s going on in your life, the highs and lows matter and when you get chance to sit and chat and set them straight in your head you feel nothing but better for it!

Is this Harrogate’s Most Relaxing Facial?

I love going to The Beauty Suite within Dangerfield and Keane’s hair and beauty salon on Cold Bath Road in Harrogate. I’ve been going there pretty much regularly since it opened eight years ago. Whether it’s for a massage, waxing, tanning, eyebrows or nails it’s always been a brilliant service. I’ve always felt really well taken care of, their customer service is spot on and the treatments are always professionally carried out and I’m always thrilled with the results.

Amazing Mamas’ Series – Hannah Flanagan

Welcome to the second of my interviews in the Amazing Mamas’ series. Here I aim to champion Harrogate parents who also own/manage local independent businesses.

Independent businesses are at the heart of what makes Harrogate great and as a community they support local parents and their little ones in all sorts of guises. Which is very topical at the moment, given the Harrogate Advertiser’s  ‘Love our Locals’ campaign.

By sharing these stories with you I hope you feel more engaged in Harrogate and you enjoy discovering new people and places to help you whilst you do the most important job you’ll ever do; raise a family.
