A Remarkable Week

The past week was remarkable, indeed.   I was blessed to participate in two events for Tu Nidito's Remarkable Moms 2014.

On Thursday, I met the other four Remarkable Moms for 2014 ~ Donna, Neelam, Page, and Tiana ~ who are remarkable, indeed!  

We met at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort for a photo shoot, which will appear in the May issue of Tucson Lifestyle.

My morning began in the capable hands of Shotizie, who treated me with her makeup skills, and then it was off to Lowes to meet the ladies...

We were greeted by the amazing Dasha Ross, Development Coordinator for 
Tu Nidito, who escorted us to the "green room."

 Gadabout Salon and Day Spa treated us to hair and makeup finishes with their talented artists....

Here's sweet Kat put finishing touches on my makeup...
And the lovely Kai introduced me to the flat iron ~ fabulous!!

Well, Mr. DeMille, I think we're ready for our close-up.  We are really feeling remarkable now!!  

Shotzie took this photo which will give you a little idea of the layout.  She was way in the back and couldn't avoid the shadows.  I'm excited to see the final result. We got to see the close up in the photographer's camera and it's lovely.

Friday was remarkable as Tu Nidito hosted a luncheon for us at their campus.   

Upon our arrival, we were joined by Liz McCusker, Executive Director ~ Ciera Garcia, Chief of Operations, Dasha Ross, Development Coordinator, and Adriana Rincon, Executive Committee member.  

A tour of the campus left me a different person from when I walked in the door ~ the experience was enlightening, inspiring, and heartening.  What a blessing for Tucson to be home to this organization.

Gosh, after those two days life seems a little quiet!!  

Not for long ~ mark the date for my next Trunk Show ~ Sunday, April 6th.  I will be sending out evites, so be watching!

I'll share some quick pix of new inventory before I leave you....

Have a remarkable week, dear ones, and Happy March!!

You looked wonderful on arrival at the shoot and after having your hair and makeup done! Shotizie looks so pretty too! I love the flatiron effect, but am totally impatient while having it done lol! :D
