Mother’s Day Makeover

Live It Like You Mean It.

Mother’s Day is this Sunday and we received a letter recently from a “Wendy” viewer asking us to give her daughter, Audrey, a makeover.

Audrey and her family are very close and active in their community. Audrey is a pastor and has been more focused on giving to others than to herself.

My Black Is Beautiful celebrates beauty across all generations and wanted to give back to this deserving mom.
