Makeover with Melanie

I so enjoyed spending some time with Melanie on Saturday morning. I wrote about Melanie on Friday, telling you how she is raising money for the coaching program at the Cancer Foundation here in Ottawa by hosting a Valentine makeover event. Not only did I get to spend some time with some lovely friends, but I also got to have my makeup done too….just in time for the fire alarm to go off and the firefighters to arrive. Nice timing!

Here are some pictures from the day.

Stunning Melanie

Looking glam!

Me, before.

Sasha and her sweet Meena, who is just precious and so well-behaved too.

Yay! Brie is here too!!

Apparently I have been hiding my freckles when I should be embracing them. Who knew?

The verdict at Sasha's house? Princess!

Brie, looking "fancy". Look at those eyes!

And me, looking "just the same". Thanks Kids!


Today’s event raised $600, and Shopper’s Drug Mart is contributing another $500. Amazing! Melanie has plans to do a lot more too. She is so dynamic and  talented and I know she is going to do incredible things.

Congratulations Melanie on a great day and thank you so much for letting me a part of it!
