Mommy Makeover Contest Winner || Recap

The style klazit, mommy makeover winner, atlanta personal stylist 

Today I'm excited to introduce you to Carolyn Abuajah, the mom who won my Mother's Day Mommy Makeover Giveaway.  Prizes included a professional style session from The Style Kläzit, hair styling (worth up to a $100 service) by Colour Personal Hairstyling Service, an outfit (worth up to $200) from Back By Popular Demand, makeup session (worth up to $85) from The Glamatory Makeup store and a photoshoot (worth up to $75) by my awesome photographer KVisuals to capture the moment.  And someone heard about what I was doing and sponsored a massage session.   

One of the nomination requirements included providing a reason why the nominee should win the contest.  Carolyn's reasoning touched my heart and was part of the main reason why she was selected to win the makeover.  Not only is she a single mother, she's a medical student.  How admirable is that?!  

It wasn't until after meeting with Carolyn that she shared a little bit more about her journey.  During the style session I was asking her about her current wardrobe and that led to her telling me how she lost almost everything she had during Hurricane Maria. The hurricane destroyed her home, school and ultimately the entire country of Dominica. 

Carolyn and her son didn't get evacuated until 4 days after the natural disaster hit, so you can only imagine the struggle she had to endure to maintain and survive. By the time she and her son got rescued, the only items she had were their passports, her laptop, cell phone and a few clothing items.

The school relocated to a boat docked off the shore of St. Kitts and with the option to either sit the semester out or finish it; she choose to finish out the semester (and live) on the boat.  She's currently working diligently to become a physician so that she can give back to the community.  Her son being her fuel, she's determined to accomplish her goal. Congratulations Carolyn!

 *Due to the weather the day of the shoot, Carolyn decided on a hair unit instead of the style from Colour.

A Mother's Day Mommy Makeover Giveaway

Mother's Day Mommy Makeover Giveaway

Can I be honest?  I never wanted kids...  I barely wanted to get married.  My life's dream (or goal) was to graduate high school become either an Travel or ER nurse, see the world and just do me.  Yet that dream went out the door when, at 17, I got preggers.  Needless to say I was devastated.  The way I saw it, my world was over.  On the bright side, I was blessed with a cute little girl who, at times, gets on my last nerve.  But she has my heart.  

Mommy Make Over Giveaway, Top Atlanta blogger

Being a mother is hard, even harder is doing alone.  13 years I went at it solo dolo.  But let me also add that I was fortunate enough to have my family and my daughter's fathers side to help make the job a little easier.  Nonetheless it was still hard. 

It's easy to neglect taking care of yourself, especially when you're constantly pouring yourself into motherhood and life.  At the end of the day we're spent.  Some mothers barely have enough energy for self-care.  Correction most of us don't have the money or time to treat our self. Believe me, I've been there.

So here's where I come in!  Since Mother's day is around the corner,  my sponsors and I would like to treat a deserving single mom to a Mommy Makeover.
