The words "self sacrifice" are almost synonymous with the word "mother."
Who else would spend their days covered in boogers and wiping chocolate fingerprints ( let's hope that was chocolate...) from the new sofa, while trying to coax slime covered little hooligans to eat their vegetables?
Even once the toddler stage is over, moms spend their days working, cleaning, cooking, washing laundry, driving to baseball practice and cub scouts and dance recitals all while trying to figure out how dinner and, God willing, a SHOWER is supposed to fit in amongst everything else.
Moms work the hardest, longest hours on less sleep and with less appreciation than any other job I can think of. 9-5 doesn't exist for moms.
If there is anyone who deserves to be pampered, it is a mom.
Unfortunately, many moms aren't able to set aside the time or money to
spoil themselves with things like getting their hair done, their makeup
professionally applied, and having their portrait taken.
That's why I'm teaming up with ultra-fab makeup artist Serena Cook of Esoteric Makeup and super talented Laura Klem of Modern Trendz Salon to bring you the first annual Mommy Makeover Contest!
We want to bless some deserving momma with a day that's all about her, but we need YOUR help!
Nominate a deserving mom by emailing a photo of her and a paragraph about what it is that makes her so amazing to:
I will take all entries and give them their own post here on the blog, that way even if a mom doesn't win, she will still get recognition for all the amazing things she does. I will email you the link to your nominees post, and share it on Facebook.
Voting will begin as soon as the first entry is posted, and end on April 26th, 2014 at 12pm PST.
You can vote in the comments section.
One voter per voter.
The nominee with the most votes will win:
Pro Hair and Makeup
A photoshoot (either just herself in all her glory, or with her loving family) just in time for Mother's Day.
I can't think of a better gift to a deserving momma than a portrait of her, looking her best and surrounded by her family.
SO nominate those mommas! Share this blog post on Facebook, or other social media sites. Tweet about it. Shout it from the rooftops! Find everyone you can to vote for YOUR Mom, Wife, Sister, Daughter, Aunt, etc...as long as she is a MOM...and let's spoil her for Mother's Day!
