Dita was lucky enough to be chosen by her friend Matilda to take part in claiming a super exciting prize – a 30 second grab at their favourite store, Smiggle!
Since Tillie won the prize a couple of weeks ago and chose Dita to accompany her, there has been high excitement and a few nerves about what to expect on the big day. As it happened, the girls had nothing to worry about – the staff were incredible and gave them time to look around the store beforehand, scoping out the things they’d really love, and moving anything that they’d eyed up that might have been just out of reach to easier to grab spots.
When it came time for them to take their turns to race around the store, both girls surprised us with how calm they were – each had a mental checklist of the items they really wanted, and swiftly grabbed their spoils. Their enormous grins said it all, they were just delighted to have had such a cool experience, and to share it with one another.
We were even more proud of Dita when we realised she’d grabbed a watch and slapband for her brothers, the exact ones they’d been hankering after since our last visit to Smiggle – that she’d managed to include them despite only having such a limited amount of time was such a gorgeous thing to do. Big sister for the win!
All in all it was an amazing experience for all of us, and such a cool way to start our weekend. Thank you Matilda for choosing Dita to share in your Bestie’s prize – none of us will ever forget it!
