Our 3rd annual Beauty Boot Camp was another success!! We had an amazing group of women attending our Beauty Boot Camp this year in Sevierville, TN and we had a great time together.

Friday night, August 23rd, Shari Braendel, Sherry Long and I welcomed 15 beautiful ladies from 9 different states to the Governor’s Inn in Sevierville, TN where we would spend the next 2 nights and days not only transforming outward appearances but also transforming lives.  We had ladies from all backgrounds with all different stories that led them to Boot Camp.  Fifteen strangers came into the meeting room on Friday night and 15 life-long friends left on Sunday!

Everyone was able to have a personalized color analysis, discover how to dress their body types, learn to accessorize proportionately, apply skin care and make-up properly,have personalized bra fittings, unveil their fashion personality, go shopping with their very own Stylist and learn to “shop” their closets as well. Several also left with totally new hair styles!

Here are a couple of ladies who had hairstyle changes:

It was described as a “life-changing” weekend for some and certainly was a treasured time for us to spend with these beautiful ladies!

When asked what their favorite part of Boot Camp was, these were some of the replies:

“Learning to shop with a purpose”

“Learning to mix and match with colors”


“Fellowship with women with the same purpose – to learn how to better represent ourselves as women in Christ”

“Meeting new friends and being accepted and received by ‘strangers'”

“Having Donna and Shari shop to get me started and put outfits together”

“Clothing Analysis and Closet Decluttering”

“Loved my hair”

“Seeing the transformations, especially the ladies that had not done a lot for themselves in years”

“Christian perspective with Image and Fashion”

Shari and I received the following email from one of the Campers on Monday immediately after Boot Camp:

“I cannot thank you both enough for this past weekend!!  I am totally exhausted and all the info is still swirling in my head but what a fun and fabulous weekend! I did a reveal for my husband this morning and he loved it. We drove over and showed my parents and they were excited too. Mom made the comment that she has her daughter back and was wishing now she had gone with me. I’ve taken the day off to rest but the closet is next so I know what to shop for. Thank you again for everything! It was a pleasure to meet all of you and such a blessing to have your help and expertise! I pray God blesses you all abundantly for the work that you do!”

It was a wonderful weekend and I hope you will make plans to join us for Beauty Boot Camp 2014!!
