What would you say about your appearance prior to the makeover?
Having had breast cancer and some severe reactions to the treatment I had lost all my self-confidence and put on weight due to steroids. I wore very baggy clothes, flat shoes and had no real hair style.
What was the best part of the makeover?
For me it was the realisation that I had been through a terrible time and it was OK to be upset. I had put on a brave face most of the time for the children because Cancer is a scary enough word, let alone when it is happening to your Mum. The reaction from my family and how proud everyone was of me is something I will remember forever.
What was the worst part of the makeover?
Seeing myself in the before shot without a doubt. I was so shocked and hardly recognised myself which was truly upsetting.
What was the best advice Trinny & Susannah gave you?
To make the most of the good bits, this funnily enough turned out to include my breasts!!!???
I am not too old to accessorize and I now share things such as shoes and jewellery with my eldest daughter. I pay she borrows!!!
How has the makeover changed your life?
I am much happier in myself and my confidence is definitely on the rise. I have since had a bit of a hair style re-vamp based on what Trinny did for me. I think at the time, she had thought about lightening my hair but I ended up with highlights so as not to scare me too much. I try on clothes (a revelation in itself) that I would never normally look twice at and am developing my own style. I have manicures and pedicures and generally take a lot more care of myself. If people talk to my boobs I now think ‘Yes, look at them aren’t they fabulous!!!!’
All in all it was a wonderful day which proved to be very cathartic and has helped me move on with my recovery.
