My name is Sarah and I run Mystical Makeovers where we create truly mesmerising and magical experiences for children with our bespoke party services. From wonderland tea parties, unicorn and mermaid makeovers to fun making Slime.
Unfortunately life hasn't always been so sparkly and rosy for me. A few years ago I was in a violent and abusive relationship with the father of my children. I was subject to horrendous violence whilst pregnant and managed to move away and set up a home for myself and my young children. Gradually I have built up my confidence, gained a level 4 qualification in make-up & special effects, raised my children and set up a rewarding business.
The business has been running for a year and is nicely established with the majority of clients contacting me through word of mouth and personal recommendations. However, I do want the business to grow and I have a vision of having a premises where I can run Mystical Makeovers from. I would offer after school clubs for children where they can have fun making Slime or be involved in a themed makeover such as mermaids, unicorns, zombies and many more. Holiday clubs could also be run from there which would have a different theme each day, giving children something to keep them amused and parents a break for a few hours. I would like to give back to the community and want to also offer a 'hub' where teenage girls could meet in the evening and learn make-up skills and techniques. It could be a safe place for them to chat, meet up with friends and develop skills in make-up application. This helps to build their confidence and keeps them safe off the streets. I would also like to offer sensory workshops for children with learning and/or physical disabilities in using the Slime. Another vision I have is to offer workshops to ladies who have been involved in abusive and violent relationships and are lacking in confidence in self-esteem. By teaching them how to apply make-up effectively is a great way for them to build their confidence and to help them to feel good about themselves.
I thoroughly enjoy my business and want to give back to the community where I can. This can only be possible by receiving funds in order that I can then be in a position to rent a premises for Mystical Makeovers.
Anything is possible in a child's imagination and it's our job at mystical makeovers to make those dreams a reality.
