Every issue one lucky reader gets a special day of pampering from No.1’ s Make-over Team.
Is there anything better in life than a really good friend who’s there for you through thick and thin? We think not! And one person who agrees is our reader, Elizabeth, who got in touch with us to nominate her best friend Jen for a make-over. She wrote to us saying, “I can’t begin to express exactly how special a person Jen is. She plays compliments down and often says ‘I try my best’, but she’s 1000 times better than that! “I resigned from a job, following a threat of bullying and when the financial strain and possibility of losing my home developed – Jen stepped in.

I think she deserves this treat of a special pamper day now because this year she turns 30 and I want to do everything I can to make it a year to remember.” So, we invited Jen along for a pamper day at No.1 HQ and she told us, “To say I was shocked that my friend, Elizabeth, had arranged this make-over would be a bit of an understatement!” Although she was delighted, she was also very nervous, “I am not comfortable with getting my picture taken normally, but I was put at ease by having my best friend

After her make-over day, Jen told us, “I loved my make-up so much, but because I’d been nervous, I felt relieved the picture part was over! But thanks for choosing me, it’s such a nice keepsake to remind me of the last few weeks of my 20’s.”
