Wow! That’s all I can say. I can’t believe that we’re here; the season finale of City Mom. It’s hard to believe that the last eight months of hard work, learning and most of all fun, have come to an end. And to thank all you wonderful City Mom viewers and readers we wanted to offer you a chance to win an amazing makeover.
It was hard to select just one deserving mama from the City Mom Makeover Contest, but we finally picked one very deserving mom and you’ll get to meet her in this week’s episode.
Sarah is a mom of two young children, a school teacher and a part-time single mom. You see her husband’s career has him away from home from Monday to Thursday, leaving Sarah to parenting on her own most of the time. TGIF you say? I bet Sarah would agree with you times ten!
Obviously spending her time with kids almost 24 hours of the day (students and her own) leaves her very little time for herself. So while she’s out shaping the minds of our future, she’s forgetting about herself.
Her morning routine consisted of a shower, some hair mouse and mascara. Though we can’t change Sarah’s schedule, we can change one day of her life and give her a few treats to help her maintain her new look.
WORKING ON SARAH
First Sarah met with personal stylist, Aleen Kelledjian at Leslie’s on Richmond. Aleen selected a number of fun, flirty, sexy and functional outfits for Sarah to try on. The hard part here was selecting just one ensemble from the amazing selection Leslie’s offers.
Next it was time to head to the salon. Here Sarah worked with Jeff Altenburg of Shampoo Planet. Sarah has a lot of gorgeous tresses with natural curl. Jeff’s challenge was to create a flattering look for Sarah but one that she can maintain on a daily basis.
Of course no look is complete without some complimentary makeup so for that we welcomed Jaydancin back on the scene. Rokhsana Purdy came armed with the full line of Jaydancin’s natural cosmetics line and created a dramatic yet easy-to-do look for Sarah.
THE FINAL REVEAL
Though you do get to see a small sample of Sarah’s new look in the image above, you’ll have to tune in to City Mom on Rogers TV at 7:00 p.m. to catch the whole process and the final reveal.
And to end, what better way to make Sarah feel like the gorgeous mama she is than to capture her new look with a professional photo shoot?
Thanks to Michaela Divine Photography, Sarah was made to feel like a supermodel. And the images prove it!
I would like to sincerely thank you for tuning in each week and reading along on citymom.ca.
Huge appreciation also goes out to team at Rogers TV London for helping me to make this dream a reality. And last, but most definitely not least, thank you to the wonderful London businesses, services and individuals who volunteered their spaces, places and time to make this all possible!
