Mother’s Day Makeover’s

What a lovely time we had hosting our Mother/Daughter makeover contest on Friday, May 9th.

The contest winners were treated to mini manicure’s with Pure Anada’s gorgeous new summer polishes, as well as a complete makeup application from talented makeup artist Kristen von Riesen. Kristen is amazing at creating a fresh, natural look that enhances your features using of course, natural mineral makeup from Pure Anada!

I must also mention incase some of you didn’t know, (I’m personally super proud of this!) Pure Anada cosmetics are made in Morden Manitoba!  The makeup is created using organic botanicals, and food-grade minerals that won’t irritate your skin like some conventional products, but most importantly, I love the fact that I don’t have to compromise my health because I want to wear makeup! You can read more about Pure Anada’s story here on their website, as well as check out the array of colour choices and options.  All Pure Anada products are proudly offered at Generation Green.

Now, back to our winners! Here are some of the photo’s I have compiled into a collage of the ladies.  I also say that it was lovely to meet them and witness the special bond they share.

Special thanks to my niece Stefanie for doing the manicure’s, Kristen of course for the makeup applications, Candace Grenier the creator of Pure Anada for the amazing contribution to our gift bags, as well as our other gift bag contributors; The Forks Market, Inn at The Forks & Ever Bamboo.

Mother’s Day Contest

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and while there are the usual cards and flowers, sometimes it’s nice to add a little something special!

My first child was born on Mother’s Day, so for me it’s always a reminder of the day I realized what unconditional love is. This is truly the greatest of all gifts!

MothersDayMakeoverContest1So if you were to ask a mom what she would really want for Mother’s Day, I am positive many would say simply spending quality time together, creating a memory to cherish!

We want to help you create a memory with your mom, or mother figure, by offering a special Mother’s Day package!

You can simply win by posting a message on our Facebook page (by replying to this post) telling us what your mother means to you, or perhaps a funny story, a favourite memory, or even why you want to win this makeover.

We will choose 3 mothers and daughters as winners!

Prize for each mother/daughter will include:  A Pure Anada Makeover by professional makeup artist Kristen von Riesen & Mini Manicures on Friday, May 9th at Generation Green. While you are having your makeup and nails done, you will also be enjoying some nibblies & refreshments! Each mother & daughter will also receive a gift basket filled with all kinds of “green” delights and gift certificates (detail listing of baskets to follow).

We will announce the winners on Friday, May 2nd.
