make over mom this mother's day (giveaway)

April 29, 2016

I'm super excited about this one. On one of my recent trips to Vincent on Preston (I love that place), I chatted with sisters and co-boss babes Ang and Amanga (those beauties below ↓) about Mother's Day.


They had some great ideas for a makeover contest for mammas, which sounded like a great idea since the selfless women who raised us all rarely make time for themselves. I mean amirite?

Today I'm excited to share a whopper of a giveaway that'll spoil your ma. This prize is worth nearly $1000 (yes $1000!) and is packed with amazing contributions from generous local businesses. Let's get right to it!

nominate your mom


Does your mom deserve some pampering? A new look? Dinner out? Some time for herself? Enter the #MakeOverMomContest by telling me a story about your mom in 200 words or less. Then she'll be entered to win a luxurious makeover prize worth nearly $1000.


Enter using this Rafflecopter widget, 'kay? First you'll be asked to leave a blog comment below sharing a story about your mum (that part is mandatory for entry), and then you'll have a chance to follow all the participating businesses for extra entries. Sound good?


You've got til next Thursday May 5, 2016 at 11:59pm and I'll announce a winner on Friday May 6.


RULES: either you or your mamma needs to be a resident of the greater Ottawa area or Gatineau, since your sweet mum will need to visit these Ottawa businesses to claim her prizes. 


Scenario 1: You don't live in Ottawa (poor you!) but your mamma does (lucky her).

Scenario 2: Your mamma lives elsewhere but will be in town for a visit to claim her prize.

Here's a shot of me, my mom, and my sis from many moons ago - nearly 10 years ago in fact. It's an oldie but still one of my faves. And obviously my lil' sis was up to no good.
