On the 19 September 2010 I started a Day Zero list: a place to record your goals, discover new challenges, and gain motivation to achieve them. I have a list of 100 things I want to do over 1001 days. The list is due to be competed by 16 June 2013.
Over the last two months we’ve been so busy. It feels like I’ve ticked off a lot of my goals and my progress is slowing down. I’ve managed the following:
20. Get the children christened
We had a lovely weekend on the Isle of Wight with all the family and the children were christened in the church we were married in.
56. Go to an Olympic event in London in 2012
We scored tickets to Synchronised Swimming and it was amazing. Unfortunately we haven’t managed to get tickets to any Paralympic events so we’ll be watching from the comfort of the sofa.
78. Make a paper-pieced quilt
I made a paper-pieced comforter for Little Sis which she loves. Now I’m planning something slightly bigger for her first birthday.
As well as focusing on my Day Zero actions I thought I would write down any other notable events (minus the nappy changes and wiping of runny noses). Over the last two months I’ve also won a year’s supply of milk and a rather fantastic P&G goody bag, reviewed back to school shoes with Clarks and taken part in the BritMums TKMaxx challenge, had a makeover thanks to the P&G Salon at the Wella studio, taken the toddler on a Day out with Thomas, been to Legoland, visited a rainbow coloured sand pit and crossed the Thames by cable car! Most importantly I survived the summer holidays!
P&G is providing more reasons than ever to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic Games with three exclusive salons for Mums, athletes and media to enjoy complimentary beauty and grooming treatments throughout the duration of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The Salons are located in The Olympic Village, The Paralympic Village, the International Broadcast Centre and Main Press Centre (IBC/MPC) complex and the Wella Studio in central London. Guests will be treated to a range of treatments including professional haircuts, colour from Wella Professionals, party styling by Pantene, grooming by head&shoulders, Gillette and Braun, skin consultations by Olay and makeup treatments including patriotic nail art by Max Factor.
The P&G Salons will offer up to 25,000 treatments over the course of The Games – that’s 25,000 opportunities to say “thank you”. P&G launched its ‘Thank You Mum’ campaign to celebrate and recognize the contributions of all mums across the world for their hard work and daily sacrifices, particularly the role of Mums of Olympians as the true heroes behind the Games.
I was invited to the P&G Salon at the Wella Studio to receive an Olay facial and make up from Max Factor and take a look around. I thought it was a lovely idea to treat the heroes behind the heroes and say a huge ‘Thank You Mum’ for their tireless hard work in getting their kids to the Games. Jessica Ennis and Victoria Pendleton have both visited the P&G Salon at the Wella Studio to get some well deserved pampering.
Visitors to P&G Salon at the Wella Studio can also take advantage of a lounge area where guests can relax and enjoy a photographic exhibition entitled the Beauty of the Olympic Games: a gallery of Olympic Athletes which tells the unique stories of some of the most influential and famous women who have competed in the past 100 years of the Olympic Games.
Don’t forget to check out the P&G Beauty Recommended App, a beauty app packed full of insider tips, knowledge and three exclusively curated ‘Beauty Spots’ tours of London.
