Laughter, Meze, Hair and Massages

Last Tuesday, I spent the evening with my friends Cé and Loraine. What a night! We had a lot of tea, a great catch up, ate plenty of tzatziki and smelly cheese. We also drank a glass of vintage Bordeaux or two. We laughed a lot. A lot!

Mezze Platter

We get together every couple of months to get our hair cut by lovely Rachel. She is the best hairdresser I have ever had and bonus: she is hilarious and loves food, too!

After Return to Glory read my post about the Talk to Mums event last month, they got in touch asking whether I wanted to “experience some RTG magic.” Yes please! They offered me a treatment of my choosing at home.

Michelle was really discreet and did not seem to mind the fact a) she was working in a crammed, messy bedroom (the kids’) and b) we were quite loud and the kids kept running in to ask silly questions. She had thought of everything, from the great massage bed with armrests when you are lying on your front (never seen those before) to towels carefully placed under my knees when I was on my back (made it so much more comfortable than usual!).

The head massage was incredible! I had never gone for it for fear of being covered in oil before going out of a salon, but as I was at home, it was not an issue. I did not actually get oily hair, and I have to say it was one of the most relaxing massages I have ever had.

I am completely won over by the concept behind RTG. I already have a beautician I love (hi Sahra!), but with four children, I really struggle to make the time to see her more than twice a year. RTG is incredibly convenient and you can book anything from a blow dry to private yoga classes to reflexology.

The whole booking can be done online, and their app (RTG me) is brilliant! You choose what you want done, at what time and you can even choose your therapist. Payment is done online so once you have processed your booking; all you have to worry about is being at home on the day. I would highly recommend RTG of you live in or around London (inside the M25).

The massages we received were free of charge and I was not asked to write a review. I loved RTG and wanted to share my experience. All opinions are my own.

      I hope you get better soon. The head massage was incredible at relieving stress (and making me fall asleep!).
