Ximena’s Miracle Make-Over: From Run Mom to Glam

In the beginning of March I hosted a Miracle Make Over Giveaway on my Facebook Page, and I was impressed by the 137 entries! If you ask me, every woman (and man for that matter) deserve to be spoiled for a day and see themselves with a new look and a new light. However, there could only be one winner, and Ximena Kriete was the lucky one!

Ximena was very excited and a little nervous. The Miracle Make Over included a hair color, style and make up by Trashy Roots Salon and a photo shoot by Slava Bowman Photography. We chatted in advance to decide on the look Ximena wanted to go for. Being a mom of three and a devoted runner, she said that she rarely wears make up, dresses and heels. Naturally, we went exactly for that.

After we were all done, she was back in her running outfit, pumps in hand. Our make over photo shoot was a lot of fun, and I think Ximena enjoyed her new look for a day :-)

She is one of these people who is beautiful with or without make up, but sometimes it’s nice to see yourself in a different light 😉
