Being a new mum isn’t easy! In fact, it’s a completely new world. It can be lonely, confusing, and sometimes you can feel like you’re failing. The good news is, you’re not alone! Our This Mum Is campaign in partnership with Nuby wants to help new mums get out of the house, meet other like-minded women, and have some fun!

It’s all too easy to lose your confidence and sense of self once you have a baby. So we want to get you back to feeling amazing – both on the inside and out. Join us for a night of beauty, styling and more with our Mam to Glam event, at the Baltic Kitchen, Newcastle.

Amanda Bell was the official head make-up artist for the BAFTAS for many years, and now she’ll be sharing her amazing make-up tips with us, as well as how to make the most of your own make-up, and how to achieve a quick morning look, which you can turn into a more glam look.

And we’ll also have a pop-up Glam Station where make-up artists Nikki & Marie will be on-hand to do your make-up throughout the evening.

Helenlee is a Style Coach who believes that you can create your dream wardrobe on any budget, and she’ll be showing us how, with some simple styling tricks that can help boost our body confidence, and get us looking and feeling great.

Kat is a Fashion Stylist and works with Pink Boutique, and she’ll be sharing her top tips for new mums and the changing shape of your body, as well as which items of clothing, fabrics and colours will suit you best.

We’ll be serving delicious canapes, which of course go well with a glass or two of Prosecco! (or a soft drink option if you’d prefer).

We’ll be giving you the chance to win a private one to one make-up tutorial worth £250 with Amanda Bell, you can grab a gorgeous Nuby goody bag, plus other great prizes on the night!

So leave your little one with a loved-one, and join us for a night of mums taking some much-needed time for themselves and coming together!

Tickets cost £10 per adult, with £5 going to children’s charity Cash for Kids, and the other £5 redeemable on the night to spend at the beautiful Baltic shop.
