#BYOM event: Not On The High Street

I attended the #BYOM (Bring Your Own Mum) event hosted by Not On The High Street and Mumsnet to celebrate all things mum orientated. It was my first opportunity to spend quality time with my mum since I've had Darcy, which made it a even more special occasion. We got glammed up, threw on our glad rags and headed to the rather beautiful
No 5 Cavendish Square where the event was held.

After being welcomed with glasses of champagne and cocktails, I got all snap happy before heading over to the photo booth. Mum and I had such a giggle trying on the props, mum rocked that blue hat!

We met Holly Tucker, founder of Not On The High Street and she was very welcoming and enthusiastic about #itsamumthing. Despite probably being the most in demand woman in the room, she spoke to us and my mum nattered away about her love of all things NOTHS and the items she had bought previously from the site.

There were so many beautiful items showcased in glass boxes. Highlights included the glitter clutch bag and floral telephones.

The evening commenced with Holly giving a touching speech about her Mum; noting that without her support and encouragement she wouldn't have achieved what she has today. Her words really resonantated with me because of all the support and guidance my own mother has given me.

Odette Toilette followed with a scented trip down memory lane.We sniffed and passed perfumed feathers around the room whilst she explained the history behind each scent. Odette offers unique fragrance experiences of which more can be found out about here.

Shappi Khorsandi entertained with her funny anecdotes regarding motherhood. The whole room could related to her tales and mother and I cackled along shamelessly.

Not On The High Street offer a wide range of items that would make gifting on Mother’s Day very easy (once you've made the hardest decision of which to pick!). They also have A Man’s Guide to a Successful Mother’s Day, so there will be no excuses for panic buying wilting bouquets from the petrol station (hint hint Terry).

A massive thank you to Not On The High Street and Mumsnet for inviting mum and I to have a special evening out together. We both really enjoyed ourselves.
