When we got married 16 years ago on the beautiful island of St Lucia (my trip down memory lane is still to come) our witnesses were two wonderful people called Pat and Peter who live on the Isle of Wight. 16 years down the line we are still great friends.
We took a trip to see them (left) this weekend and it was the perfect opportunity to spend some time with Jen, Lisa and Lin at the Isle's Liz Earle store on Union St. The shop is like a beauty boutique and the girls looked so gorgeous in their uniforms.
The shop has a wonderfully organic feel to it and the aroma of Liz's new fragrance lingered in the air. As you can imagine I was so at home.
Of course it had to be the infamous Cleanse and Polish we were holding. The girls love it too and have put this one in their staff room. I could have spent hours in the shop looking at the products as I am such a beauty junkie. Many customers came in and there was a wonderful buzz in the air.
I met lady a lovely lady called Hayley (left) in the shop. She was on a trip to the island and her husband was so funny. He said that when he goes out he has to take the remote control, phone and his wallet. That really made me laugh but Hayley has it sussed, that's my kind of girl. We had so much fun and I didn't want to leave.
On saying goodbye the girls kindly gave me the turquoise Liz Earle bag that makes any girl go weak at the knees. It had three of my favourite products in. So naughty of them and incredibly generous. If I didn't know the Liz Earle team as I do I would have thought that Chinese whispers were telling the girls I was starting to age and in the need for more moisture! Haha!
It was a beautiful day and we went for a walk with Scruncher on the beach. We had lunch on the sea front and spent a lovely evening with Pat and Peter. Our time together is very precious and we have so much fun together. We had a lovely meal at the beautiful Castle and my banoffee tart with clotted cream ice cream was simply a dessert to remember.
On Sunday we just relaxed over breakfast and before we knew it we were on the ferry home waving goodbye. Another great weekend for the Franks family!
I will show the pics of my weekend on Thursday 12th November in the two-hour Liz Earle show. I can't wait to see Liz's face when she sees the Cleanse and Polish picture!
Have you been to the Liz Earle store in Union St, or had any special trips that stay in your heart…
