A Birthday Mommy Makeover!


Happy Birthday to us!

It’s our 2nd bloggy-birthday and it just keeps getting better.  It’s been another amazing year and we couldn’t be more pleased with who we’ve met, what we’ve done and the fun we’ve had.  All because of YOU!  Our readers are amazing!  You read our blog posts, you come to our events, and you interact with us on social media.  We love that we get to connect with you online and off as well.

We’ve given away a lot of stuff, I mean a LOT of stuff…and we love doing that.  So today, in honor of our birthday, we’re giving away another Mommy Makeover! 


One lucky momma will win a day of pampering at some of our favorite Burlington hotspots.


The day begins at 10am at Mini Spa VT If you haven’t been to Mini Spa VT yet…you should!  They are famous for their feet but they are so much more.  They are a full service spa offering everything from facials to waxing to massage and a lot in between.  There our winner will receive a facial from their REN skincare line.  REN’s philosophy can be summed up in 3 words: performance, purity and pleasure.  With groundbreaking product formulas, they use only 100% plant and mineral derived compounds mixed with pleasing fragrances to provide you with a relaxing yet invigorating experience.  Next up our winner will be treated to a Deluxe Spa Manicure where she’ll get to enjoy an almond cuticle treatment, sugar scrub and warm paraffin dip.  A perfect way to prep hands for the coming cooler months.


For lunch we are fortunate enough to have Skinny Pancake treating our winner to a $20 gift card.  Skinny Pancake is located on the corner of College and Lake and has the most fantastic view of the water.  They also have an amazing outdoor seating area so we’re keeping our fingers crossed for some nice weather that would permit outdoor dining.


To round out the pampering portion of her day, our winner will be at Indigo Salon.  Indigo is located on Battery Street but overlooks beautiful Lake Champlain.  It has to be the most incredible and relaxing view at any salon in all of Burlington.  I love Indigo for several different reasons.  They are professional, prompt and friendly.  They also make sure their stylists are well educated and follow the latest styles and trends to bring you the exact hairstyle you want.  From the receptionist greeting you at the door, to your stylist, to management, everyone has a smile.  They are a one-stop shop, they kind of do it all.  Haircuts, color, hair removal, lash tinting, and makeup are just a few of the services they provide.  I could go on and on but what you really want to know is what they’re offering our winner.  Indigo Salon will be doing a haircut, color and makeup application for our winner.

TracyIandoliPhotographyAnd of course we’re going to need some “after” photos so we’ll be sending Tracy of Tracy Iandoli Photography to snap some pictures of our winner’s transformation.  You’ll see more of her work in our wrap up post but you can check her out on her facebook page here.

FarmhousegroupFinally it’s date time! So grab your significant other or a friend and enjoy a delicious dinner!  We are so excited to say that the Farm House Group has donated a gift card valued at $40 for use at ANY of their restaurants.  Which restaurants belong to the Farm House group you ask?  Here they are: Pascolo Ristorante, Guild Tavern, Farmhouse Tap & Grill, and El Cortijo Taqueria.  You can’t go wrong with any one of them, so enjoy!

While we’d love to give every one of you our amazing birthday gift (because you all MORE than deserve it), alas, only one of you can win.

If you’d like to enter here’s what you need to know.  You MUST be available for all services on Saturday, September 20th.  All of these appointments are pre-booked, so if you win your appointments will begin at 10am and end around 5pm with dinner to follow.  Otherwise, enter the giveaway below and good luck!

  1. I’m a mom of three and I can’t remember the last time I’ve had any sort of pampering. This would be such an amazing thing! Fingers are crossed 🙂

  2. I would love to pamper myself. We’re on a tight budget and I don’t treat myself too often. This would be the perfect mental health break for Momma, me, who is desperately in need of one.

  3. New mom to 5 month old twins and with being so large during pregnancy and having the boys barely have time for myself anymore and this sounds heavenly!!!

  4. What a great way to celebrate! Congratulations Mom’s Blog! It’s my birthday too! I know what I’m wishing for when I blow out my candles…these amazing gifts would make me feel great about turning 35. 🙂

  5. Our son just turned one year old and since our son has been born – my husband and I desperately need a date night! Also – he hasn’t seen me with my hair and make up done since then. These days my fancy clothes are something without food or snot on them and my hair in something other than a ponytail 🙂 Good luck to all!
