The secret to my (somewhat) sanity in this whole parenting malarkey is getting some me-time. And then some time to let my mum-side fade into the background, and the rest of my personality come alive. I do this via my blog when Little Man is at school (read my post: Why Mums like me Blog) and every once in a while, head out with my besties for a night out. No, not the getting piss drunk/ dancing the night away type of nights out; but just fun catch-ups with a good amount of wine or cocktails (or both!) and some serious non-serious chatter.
And it was on one of these occasions that I tried Fizzbox – the new online marketplace for organising group events and activities. These can be anything from birthday celebrations to adventure experiences to hen dos to business team building events. Or, like I chose, just to book a fun night out for me and my girlfriends at a London restaurant.
All-in-all, the process was simple. And quick. Rather than search each restaurant's website to look for ongoing deals, I got them all in one place via Fizzbox. As shown in the picture below.
I liked the sound of the deal at Las Iguanas and wanted to find out more. Just one click and the page below opened up… giving me all the information I required. Including what the deal included, the menu and the location. That way, I knew exactly what to expect. So convenient!
Next step – to enquire if we could get a table for 7 for Saturday night. Again, it was just a matter of filling in some basic details like number of people, date and time.
And then filling in my personal details so that they could get in touch with me.
Deal done! No booking fees, no hassle. Win-win for me.
The idea behind Fizzbox is to help users link up directly with the suppliers, allowing them to instantly search, book and pay in an easy and seamless way. Which is exactly what I experienced. One satisfied user here and I'll definitely be signing in again to book other activities. Maybe a family activity this time?
PS: The girls night out was great fun, in case you were interested!
Disclosure: I was compensated for my time trying out and reviewing the site; however, all opinions are my own and completely honest.
