A make-over, some cuteness and lots of work!



It has been a wonderful week-end.

On Saturday morning Dereck and I had our final gym session with our personal trainer Helen (known as "The Dragon Lady") and her evil assistant Niels (I will tell you more about this in another blog, when I have some pictures and stats) and then went to Run Walk for Life Westville for our annual prize-giving which was in the form of a breakfast where Saras outdid herself again with wonderful catering - thanks Saras!!

After that we got ready and went down to Derek's late mom's flat to collect a few things and then came home.

I made a really yummy pudding to take to my brothers place in the evening as it is his birthday today as as they were having a show house he had his birthday get together on Saturday evening.

Then I went for a colour assessment. Fay Coleman who lives in Hillscrest (her daughter Megan is Miss South Africa and I didn't even click when I was there!!!!) did my analysis and confirmed that I am a WINTER meaning I must wear cool colours - bright vibrant colours!! She then proceeded to show me how I should wear my make up. Here is me as you all know me - natural with lipstick:
And here I am after she had finished with me:

The next is the hair. I have an assessment on Tuesday and have booked my hair appointment for next week Saturday - looking forward to seeing what that transformation will look like!!

Grant's friends came over for a visit and his one friend Juan and his girlfriend Nicole have a little girl Genevieve - she is about 4 months old and is just too cute:


We had a boerewors braai at my brother Malcom's place on Saturday evening. A great family gathering, as always.

Sunday, got up at 8:00am. Got stuck in the garden and planted some Jasmin bushes in the front and then planted a few little cacti that I had. Grant and Lauren made us a yummy bacon and scrambled egg breakfast and the I had my shower as Paula (my friend from work) was coming round for some "scrapping" help. Her son's teacher was leaving and one of the mom's asked each of the children in the class to do a scrapbook page to make a memory album.

Paula did very well considering it was her first time and with a bit of my help completed this layout. She just needs to get her son Joshua to write his little bit and then for her to add in hers:

I am sure the teacher is going to really treasure this album.

Now to go and watch a bit of TV and relax.


Made over and worked out signing off .........

I see you've been a busy bee as is the norm for you. Love the made-up look. So what happened at your last gym session for the competition?

The layout Paula did looks great ... sure the Teacher will have good memories when paging through her memory album.

Genevieve is just too cute.

Michelle, I have ALWAYS wanted to do make overs!...sigh...i believe that so many women are unhappy within themselves and in a rut and don't realise that we are all beautiful in our own way!!! A new look can often be like food for the soul, and be life changing to some - how exciting!!! Can't wait to see the new HAIR!!!...and enjoy...
