Let SVMoms Make You Over!
Been paying lots of attention to your kids, and not any to yourself? Has it been ages since you went to a hair salon that didn't have balloons and candy? Do you spend more time picking out your kids' clothes in the morning than your own? Oh, and what about a romantic dinner at a swanky restaurant WITHOUT the kids? Ladies, it's time to change all that.
Silicon Valley Moms want YOU! We want to hear from the moms who have been putting their families first and themselves last for too long. And we're gonna make you feel great!
One lucky mom will get goods and services worth approximately $1200 (Please note that all services are in the Palo Alto, California area and are nontransferable.)
La Belle, the luxurious day spa in Stanford Shopping Center or Town and Country Palo Alto, will provide the winner with a suite of services, including a custom mini facial, a manicure, makeup, eyebrows and hair, customized to the winners need.............
Mantra (named one of SF Chronicle Michael Bauer's top 100 restaurants!) will provide a romantic dinner for two at their Palo Alto restaurant. ($100 value).
