Working Mom May 2009: My Makeover

working mom magazineI got featured at Working Mom's magazine May 2009 issue's makeover session! This is what I am waiting for. This is the first time that I got the chance to be "model-for-a-day". I had a great time at Piandre salon and it was such a very wonderful experience! Thank you Ms. Leah and Ms. Romina for this opportunity!

I didn't realize that a photoshoot could be tiring, maybe because I am not used to wearing makeup and high heels, and of course, it was really hot outside! But this is nothing compared to the what I've learned from this experience.

Backtrack: I got excited when I received the email from Ms.Leah San Jose (managing editor), informing me that I am the first reader who got chosen for the makeover session. It had been a 2-day makeover session. The first was an image consultation with the stylist and image consultant, Ms.Romina Urra-Gonzales and the second part is the makeover and photoshoot session.

I had been really thankful not just because I got to appear in the magazine, but more so, I learned a great deal about myself even more. I learned to complement my body shape and know the clothes perfect for me and my lifestyle. It was indeed a transformation! Few months from now, I'll be turning 30... there'll be more changes to look forward to and I am glad that Working Mom had started it all. True enough, this makeover is perfect in time for my 30th birthday!

Here I am, gracing the pages of Working Mom Magazine:

This is the finale! This is also the reason why I blogged about my Image Awareness and why I'm Sporting a New Look. I've previously chosen to keep information on hold until such time that this magazine was published.
