Where to find luxury treatments and fun leisure
A casual shopping trip on a Thursday afternoon with a friend around The Bullring was going very well when we were approached by two very glamorous looking ladies with an interesting offer for us both that had me quite intrigued. I looked into the company once I got home. I must admit I was even more interested in the offer once I had researched it more and now regret not investing in it!
luxury makeovers are on offer
The girls represented a company called Thinkbubble; a company started up by a celebrity stylist which offers a variety of luxuries like makeovers and pamper sessions along with photo shoots and leisure offers, for example. Their offer to us both was to have a makeover and pamper session along with a photoshoot that had free food and drinks as well as leisure activities, such as paintball and vouchers for nightclubs and bars around Birmingham all for the price of £25.00. At first I thought it seemed to good to be true and that there must be a catch somewhere. They claimed that it was a one off offer only available to 25 girls on this Thursday and I probably would have gone for it had I any cash up front.
After a few hours researching the business I am quite intrigued about what it is that they offer at ThinkBubble. The company website states "We provide a variety of discounted, unbeatable value lifestyle gift day packages and gift experiences". The cheapest service they offer for £25.00 is a buy one get one free package offering pampering and a makeover with a photoshoot and refreshments with a complimentary A4 print of one of your photos. The company basically offers luxury treatments at a slightly discounted price in comparison to other companies who chose not to give you anything complimentary with a range of slightly higher prices. It seems appealing to anybody interesting in endorsing luxury treatment without having to pay as much on slightly less than what other companies offer.
It's not just beauty and glamour treatments and services that ThinkBubble provides, but also vouchers for leisure activities. From browsing through the website, I found a voucher priced at £45.00, offering everything from a lunchtime meal to entry to paintball and comedy gigs. To me, the vouchers ThinkBubble offer seem excellent as a gifts for a birthday, Christmas etc. There are studios in Birmingham, London, Manchester and Cardiff to name a few, though I recommend you go on the Yellow Pages website to find your nearest one.
All in all, it seems to me like a decent service that is ideal to take part in or to purchase as a gift for someone. I suppose I'll have to look around for the two ladies again next time I go to the Bullring to see if I can have that one off offer!
