Somebody pinch me

Posted on

’cause I must be dreaming!!!

A while ago I heard on the radio (Sthland More FM) an ad for a comp. Win a makeover. Heck that sounds fab I thought – I could so do with a haircut. So I emailed my details incl a pic & kinda forgot all about it.
Fast foward to friday arvo. I got a phone call saying its such & such from Beauty & Beyond. (All I could think of was heck I soo need a hiarcut & people have tracked me down to tell me so! ) You have been chosen for the final eight of the makeover comp, come in tomorrow for an interview.
So I go in for an interview, kids in tow as Andre was working. Here I find out this ‘little makeover’ is actually something really huge – followed around by TV cameras, 6 weeks of being made to look beautiful, new glasses, gym work, followed by a Gala charity dinner Big Reveal – huge!!!
So to get to the point – I won!! Gosh damn it I WON! More FM rang me up interviewed me on the radio this morning to tell me I am one of the final four. ARGHHH!!! Thank goodness no one could see me I was shaking like some kind of druggie! Andre is super excited for me – though he keeps asking if I am going to get new boobs! ROFL!!!

I am stoked that the charity is for the “Look Good, Feel Good” foundation. I have had so many people in my life at the moment diganosed with cancer it will be so good to try and give something back to a wonderful cause.

I am so excitied, very nervous & kinda freaked out. I am so truley freaked out. I have struggled since my girls were born with the way I feel about myself. I don’t like the way I look. In fact I battle with myself often on a daily basis. People tell me I am beautiful I hear them but I don’t believe them. My husband tells me it all the time but I don’t even believe him. I truely hope that this experience is something that has been sent to me to help me get over this struggle. To make peace with myself and to find myself beautiful once again.
