Celebrate Makeover Momma’s Semi-Reduntant Makeover With The #FreshStart Twitter Party!


Perhaps it’s only befitting that Makeover Momma has undergone a vast makeover in 2012 (if only to keep itself from being a virtual hypocrite), and thus we are two posts in to the new launch of the website. If you missed my verbiage heavy Vlog (does anyone else feel really pretentious using words like “vlog” in regular vernacular?), than click this handy link here.

Otherwise, nothing says “new mom, new life, new look” like a… new Twitter party! So listen up my fabulous friends. If you want a “fresh start” for the rapidly impending new year [only a month-ish more until we guzzle champagne, fail our resolutions, and try to live out When Harry Met Sally fantasies], read on…


What: The #FreshStart Twitter Party to celebrate the relaunch of Makeover Momma

When: Join me on Monday, December 10’th at 8 PM/EST using the hashtag #freshstart

Who: You! To qualify for the amazing giveaways (admit it, that’s the only reason you pretend to like me), be sure to follow @makeovermomma and the amazing sponsors as listed below.

Goodies: Not only will we pick various Twit-savvy winners during the party itself (at random, as long as you RSVP accordingly)… but ONE lucky winner will take home ALL of the prizes as well! To qualify for the grand prize, leave a comment below telling me how/why you want a fresh start for the new year.



* NEW Pantene AgeDefy Collection: Lately I’ve been wanting to get a tattoo [do not tell my mother] of the phrase “Il suffit de inspirer pour que le temps passe”, meaning (in my favorite balletic-inspired script) “you only have to inhale and time is already over”. In my mind, this is a way of remembering to make every breathe count. To not take anything for granted. So how does this apply to the new AgeDefy collection from Pantene? Perhaps it’s the connotation that no matter how much we mature, we should never accept age as a means of letting our best selves go (or maybe it’s the underlying fact that a good hair day really does seem to make life a little bit better). Regardless, their new plumping line is perfect for locks of all ages because the AgeDefy Shampoo, Conditioner and Advanced Thickening Treatment boost fine, thin and otherwise wimpy strands with a killer combo of caffeine (which makes my world go ’round as well), strengtheners and volumizers.

Follow: @Pantene, Pantene Pinterest and Pantene Facebook


* Mai Couture Gift Set (Value $84): If you hate watching yourself devolve in to a pasty, Daria-inspired ghost over the cold winter months (i.e. missing your summertime tan), but want a quick, easy way to apply bronzer… look no further! I personally hate the orange-palmed, loofah-obsessed, stinky madness that occurs from using too much self tanner, so Mai Couture offers the perfect mix of golden goodness without the mess. Their unique beauty papers allow you to apply a hint of glow or blush without ever pulling out a brush or gobs of makeup (just swipe a little bit of paper on chosen areas and you’re done). Heck, you can do that in the rearview mirror whilst waiting in the carpool line! Done and done.

    This sounds fun, Bails! I love how passionately you’re embracing your Fresh Start. XOXO

  2. Michelle B says:

    I’d love a fresh start for January! I’m actually having the breast reduction surgery that I’ve wanted for years in mid January. For me, that is going to be a fresh start since I think all the pain I have will be relieved and I can actually *do* stuff I haven’t been able to.

  3. Kristen says:

    I’m in desperate need of a makeover for the new year. I’ve spent 2012 gaining 60lbs on prednisone & immunosuppressants, then losing 15lbs in a month, then re-gaining. My “looks” have been the last thing on my mind for 8yrs now & I need an invigorating, positive change for myself. It’s time for the ‘Night Of The Living Dead’ look to go!

  4. Kristen, I am so sorry to hear you’ve been going through those things but had to comment as I’ve been on a pretty miserable dose of immunosuppresants and steroids too lately! Let’s talk and vent. Want to email or tweet me at @makeovermomma? Here for you girl!

  5. Jen R says:

  14. mriveramora says:
