Being a mum of two, especially when the youngest is only 8 months old, means that there isn’t too much me-time going on.  When I was invited by the Rejuvenate Skin Clinic in Manchester to pop along and have a try of a couple of their treatments I jumped at the chance.  I arranged for my mum to have G whilst O was at school and I headed to the Northern Quarter for a few hours being pampered.
