The idea behind Whats In Your Pocket is for people to celebrate life's little wins by finding money you forgot you had.
If you are a blogger or just a reader of blogs you may have seen pieces about this already.
Money supermarket chose a select number of bloggers to take part in this challenge and I was lucky enough to be selected.
So what did this challenge entail??
Money supermarket gave me £20 to do with as I wished.
The only catch was to blog about what I did with the money. All entries received would be in with the chance to win a prize of £200.
Simple........or so I thought!!!
The hard part was deciding what to do with the money. The choices were endless. Did I simply spend it on myself, treat my family, save it or give it to charity.
After much pondering there was only one answer, I would treat someone.
That someone is my dear friend Natalie as there is nothing she wouldn't do to make me happy.
So its about time I returned the favour.
The timing of this challenge is almost heaven sent as Natalie has recently given birth to little Gracie Olivia and the last person to be treated after a birth is the mother.Plus with the cost of raising a family, money is tight.
One thing I know without a shadow of a doubt is that new moms often feel tired, washed out, a little lost and dare I say it frumpy!! lol. Been there,done it twice!
Many many time we have spoken about Natalie wanting to try new things with her appearance and beauty routine. Which gave me the perfect opportunity to lend a helping hand and treat her to something.To get her on her own adventure of becoming Natalie again and not just Mommy.
I got a nice balance with my gifts, with elements of relaxation and pampering.Absolutely perfect for the "me" time a new mom desperately craves.
Now for the simple bit....spending the money.
Dove Mini Pampering Kit
Rimmel Kajal Eye Liner Pencil - Jet Black
Collection Mosaic Glow Bronzer
Collection Smokey Eyes Pallet
Collection Volume Sensations Lipstick - Satin Bow
In total I spent £20.04, this also included a gift bag.

Once all the gifts were opened it was time for a pamper.....as all girls do!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed taking part in my first official blogger challenge and it definitely gave me the feel good factor.
