Pamper Morning at intu Trafford Centre

Last Saturday I headed to intu Trafford Centre to meet up with my friend, Chloe, for a little pamper morning… Usually if I’m going to the Trafford Centre, it’s to shop, or to eat (or most of the time, both), but I never previously thought of it as a place to go for beauty treatments until I was kindly invited along to try out some treatments with intu beauty. The first stop was The Face Doctor. I’m no stranger to…
