Inspired by Molton Brown this coming Saturday… but what about Friday?


Well hello everyone,

I hope you’re all well. Here are a couple of areas for inspiration this week.

Firstly I’d like to point you in the direction of our stunning Today’s Special Value (TSV) coming up this Saturday; the Molton Brown Luxurious Gift Collection.

I’m sure you’ll be more than inspired when you see this fabulous five-piece selection that’s been put together for you. There are two choices in the collection, Fresh or Floral. I love the Floral which has firm favourites like Fiery Pink Peppercorn and Rhubarb and Rose. There is also the Fresh option though, with beautiful fragrances like Coco and Sandalwood, Orange and Bergamot or Lemon and Mandarin.

Each option also includes a travel collection, so brilliant if you’re on the move or even just off to the gym. This is absolute luxury and with Mother’s Day right around the corner, a truly fantastic gift idea.

So that’s Saturday taken care of but what about the day before? Well tomorrow is Inspirational Women’s Day!

We all know of women who throughout the centuries have left their mark on this world and inspired untold millions. But what about closer to home… well this year I would like to nominate my lovely niece Louise as a true inspiration in my life. I wouldn’t be surprised if I’ve already put her forward in years gone by… but no matter, I find her inspirational year in year out.

Many of you will know that she lost her mum (my sister) when she was only 18 years old and an only child. We were close before but even more so over the years. She is a wonderful niece, beautiful wife to her husband Dan and amazing mum to her little ones Sophie and Josh. She has not had an easy life for a variety of reasons but remains so positive and is a constant source of encouragement to so many (including me!!).

It’s hard to believe when you look at her at just 3 years old (see above) the transformation that would take place… and not only on the outside. She is stunningly beautiful on the inside too!! Am I just a tad bias? Absolutely!! But as I told her recently, my world is such a better place with her in it.

So here’s to you my lovely Louise… an inspiration to us all!!


Hopefully this has brought someone to your mind that has inspired you over the years.

If you still can, why not let them know just how much they mean to you!

Lots of love,

Anne xxx
