The Ministry of Glamour
The MOG was created to give the readers of emmaheaven.com the chance to win a glamorous makeover and photo shoot with #teamheaven.
After all - who doesn't want to dress up and have fun?
Let us make your dream become a reality...
I’m delighted to introduce to you the latest competition winner and next member of our Ministry of Glamour. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Angela Evans.
The competition was an opportunity to join our Ministry of Glamour by winning a makeover, photo shoot and an invite to the ƎH Awards at The Hyst, High Street, Swansea.
Angela was nominated by her friend’s daughter Rianon Jones. As soon as I read her email I just knew she was our next winner!
Here is Rianon’s email:
WOW! How could we not say anything other than a resounding “YES” to this amazing woman who has been through so much. I’m sure you’ll agree, she is a worthy winner.
When I called Angela to tell her she had been nominated and won the competition she was absolutely thrilled, mixed in with shock and humbled that someone had nominated her for a competition.
We arranged to meet at Angela’s home so she could tell me more about herself and we could prepare for her makeover and photoshoot. In fact we talked so much that it was only when my stomach began talking to me (or is that answering back?!) did I realise I had been there for hours and had missed my lunch. It’s a rare day and person to have such an effect on me!
When Angela arrived the following week at Studio Heaven we plied her with lots of fizz as she sat in the chair whilst Jenna and Hilary worked and wove their unique brand of magic.
Again, the big reveal was one of those oh-so-special moments. Angela was totally overwhelmed and blown away when she saw her reflection. She became quite emotional and had to stop the tears from falling as she didn’t want to spoil Jenna’s masterpiece.
Once in the studio she came to life and quickly got into the swing of things. She was a total natural, adapting to each and every accessory we dressed her with. (The fur scarf was such a big hit, I had to hide it from her before she left!)
Angela was confident and full of life. The shoot was a lot of fun. She was a joy to capture on film and her enthusiasm was infectious.
After the shoot we descended on the pool and spent the rest of the evening chatting and drinking plenty more fizz.
Angela is an incredible woman - we really bonded over our similar life experiences. We truly understood how the other felt and I can honestly say that in Angela I now have a friend for life.
A few days later, Angela and her husband joined us for the ƎH Awards at The Hyst and boy do they know how to party! They were last seen dancing the night away drinking one of our tailor-made cocktails!
I know they had an incredible time as Angela sent the most lovely message the following day to tell me how much they had enjoyed themselves. And don’t worry Angela, next year you’ll be there as one of our Ministry Of Glamour nominees! YES, we get to do it all over again! So start perfecting your partying training now!
I’m now going to hand you over to Angela to tell you a little bit about herself and how she found the whole experience.
“After the initial shock of realising what I had won, I was very humbled and honoured that the lovely Rianon had nominated me for every woman’s dream, which is to be pampered. Trust me when I say that I’m not often left speechless but I really couldn’t believe that this was happening to me!
I’m a 48 year-old wife and mother of three. I have two grown up sons and an eight year-old daughter who keeps me very busy.
I work part-time as a funeral arranger, which even though sometimes has its difficult moments, I am very lucky to say I’m in a job I love.
The past year has been a very tough one, which kind of knocked the wind out of my sails for a bit, but this makeover and experience couldn’t have come at a better time. It was just what I needed to be Ange again and it was the start of me getting my ‘mojo’ back. Seeing myself in the mirror and the transformation was very emotional and overwhelming.
The whole experience was amazing. TeamHeaven truly are the best in what they do and I cannot thank Emma enough for making me feel so special, but the best bit of all is how welcome I was made to feel and I have made a new friend for keeps.”
Thank you guys for making me believe in myself again and so here’s to 2017 with a new me and exciting new chapters to create.”
Now please step through the door of the Ministry Of Glamour to see Angela in all her glamorous glory...
And so the search begins once more for our next member of the Ministry Of Glamour.
