Me Time with Rock Pamper Scissors

I only discovered pampering and ‘me time’ in my mid 30s. Seriously, up until  then I did nothing with myself other than have once yearly haircuts – but only when I actually couldn’t see because my fringe was too long. I’d never had ANYTHING professionally waxed and I certainly wasn’t going to spend money on my nails when I bite them so much.

When the children were little there was no point in attempting to have any time to myself to do these things, and to be honest I just wasn’t bothered.

Entering my 30s I had an epiphany. I work hard, I spend a lot of time with my kids and why the hell shouldn’t I start looking after myself better and spend a bit of time and money on myself?

Slowly but surely I’ve realised that some things are necessary. In order to stop myself biting my nails I have them ‘done’ and I have my eyebrows waxed, much to the hilarity of my beauty therapist who shushes me gently like a baby when I squeal with pain. My hair is done by another friend who is a mobile hairdresser but I am still a bit slack in the regularity of that. In fact recently I trimmed my own hair, much to the disgust of The Teenager.

So now I’ve decided it’s time to crank up my ‘me time’. 2015 is the year of the facial, the eyebrow threading, the regular haircut and the spa visit.

Rock Pamper Scissors is a one-stop shop for beauty and hairdressers.  Simply enter your nearest town and what you require and as if by magic a list of possibilities pop up.  The best bit is that each salon has a rating, price range and information about it’s staff.  Having a choice, and all the information in front of you is fantastic and being able to book it there and then is great.

I’m going away for a weekend to Manchester shortly and I think I’ll be checking out Rock Pamper Scissors’ Manchester offerings to see where and how I can get some me time while I’m there.
