Today is a good day to start my blog as I was asked to attend the Fareham Shopping Centre to pick up a luxury hamper that I won from Boots as part of a Mothering Sunday Promotion on Twitter.

I have never been to Fareham before and I was really pleasantly surprised! What a lovely town, It sort of partly reminds me of Seaton and also Chichester with lovely old buildings mixed with the new but with a really nice layout.
First impressions were of how clean the town and shopping centre is, absolutely spotless. Airy and spacious it was instantly relaxing and lovely to wonder around.
It boasts the world's largest Debenhams department store and it certainly felt enormous.
My friend was good enough to drive me there so we had time to do ladies that lunch and two main meals with drinks came to £15.50 which is really good value, large portions and delicious food, the food court is well worth visiting.
Cleaners are constantly walking around and keeping everything gleaming - I'm so impressed!

I had to meet the representative from the Centre at 2.30 and then we met with the boots No7 girls and were photographed being given the hampers, unknown to me it was a selection of luxury items and a £50 No7 voucher which after a consultation I was able to spend on my recommended products!
I had a complete make up tutorial and Dawn, the consultant advised me on colours, product and skin care. She was really easy to talk to and was really informative and friendly! I ended up also buying a couple of extras but hey! it was a treat ;-)

So overall impression is the centre is fabulous and well worth a visit and I will definitely be going back for Christmas shopping. There was also a market outside the centre which we didn't really have time to full explore but has sparked my interest enough to know I will be back!

A picture of my amazing hamper is below, when the photos of the day are published I will post a link to the website!
