The weeks are flying by super quick. This wreaks havoc with both my anxiety and my never ending to do lists, but silver lining it also means it’s only 3 weeks to go until the Be You Beautiful Christmas Pamper & Shop and I’m so excited!
Today I thought I’d answer some common questions I get about the events just to let people know more if they are thinking of coming along, encourage more people to share and invite others who may have asked questions.
Why do I host the Events?
Truth be told I don’t actually make a lot of money. I pay for venues with atmosphere, bars, parking and facilities clients and traders need, plus we do it on a prime night …Friday. So hall, marketing, decoration, printing, goody bags and stuff all mounts up. The hours I spend talking to traders and people about the event, the hours I spend thinking of ways to support, promote and get the word out, I could make better money doing more beauty, but it comes back to that cheesy saying “I’m doing what I love”. It’s not about the money, I trust I’ll work that bit out along the way.
Instead these events give me a chance to do lots of things that light me up helping women indulge and take time for themselves, encouraging beauty, self care and connection, bringing friends and community together, making a difference in multiple ways.
Not to mention the fact I get to work alongside and support traders just like me working hard for themselves doing what they love and all trying to meet the same people. The lovely clients we get through the door, which leads me to the next question …
Who can come?
This is probably best answered by explaining why I started. As a beauty therapist I was attending school pamper evenings enjoying talking to mums as I offered nail services, but noticing that many were alone or just with their ‘mum friends’ and as a mum I understood, I would of likely only gone to my sons school for such an event. I felt more women deserved an evening of treatments, offers, shopping and spending time with friends.
So in answer to the question it’s for women. It’s for any woman, alone or with friends, with 30 minutes or 3 and a half hours to take for themselves, who deserve to indulge in a bit of me time (every woman deserves this and should make time for it!)
What does the evening involve?
We make sure to use venues with everything on offer; free parking, a bar, a spacious venue so we can also offer social tables to sit between shopping, treatments, chatting to traders and others attending on the night. We also have a charity raffle and a special charity drive running alongside this event.
What stalls will be there?
There will be loads. With over 25 stalls all together including; mediums/readers, Therapists offering over 15 beauty and holistic services at amazing rates, traders with unique one off items and on the night offers, goody bags first 50 guests, prize draws, give aways, demos and much more. I’ll be highlighting each of our traders in their own blog as we run up to the event, as well as sharing more about the night with you.
How much is such a fab night going to cost?
£2 entry, then the money for your beverages and spending money. Cash is recommended to bring along on the evening, as not a lot of our traders take card.
How can I get tickets?
You can pay on the door but if you like to be organised or want to treat your friends you can grab your tickets here.
