#BYOM with Not on the High Street

Thursday evening I was lucky enough to attend an event hosted by Not On The High Street, my go to company for when I am looking for a special gift. The theme of the evening was celebrating mothers and womanhood, and therefore we all got to #BYOM (bring your own mum). My mum was delighted to be invited to her first event, and it was truly a very special evening to share with her.

Upon arrival at 5 Cavendish Square we were greeted by the lovely people at Not on the High Street and spoilt with copious amounts of champagne and canapés. Dotted around the room were various different props to celebrate being a mother, along with lots of Not on The High Street products. There was a wooden tree to hang a note to your pre-mum self, my mums being "Enjoy being a mum, they grow up too fast".  There was also a photo booth where I got to dress up with my mum, wearing hats, glasses and various other products - just like a young girl dressing up in her mums clothes!

The evening started with a very inspirational speech from Holly Tucker (the CEO and founder of Not on the High Street) about how her mother inspired and supported her to set up her own business. We were then entertained with a Vintage Perfume Experience by the lovely Odette Toilette, taking us through a sensory experience of perfumes of the past - a very unique experience indeed! This was followed by female comedian Shappi Khorsandi with her hilarious stories of motherhood.

#ItsAMumThing is such a beautiful and thoughtful campaign that encourages celebrating Mothers not just on Mothers day, but the whole year round. I love my mum and I am very close to her. She has always been there for me, even when I have made a bad decision. She is the most caring, thoughtful, beautiful person I know, who would drop everything for her children and grandchildren and I wouldn't change anything about her.

I want to thank Not on The High Street and Mumsnet for such a special evening and the opportunity to share it with my mum. So this Mothers day, do something special with your mum, let her know what she really means to you and cherish every minute with her.
