Mother/Daughter Mother’s Day Makeover  

There’s something about a mother-daughter bond. Just ask Deysta Gallardo and her daughter, Dominique. Deysta says it has always been just the two of them. Deysta raised her daughter as a single mom. The two of them are very close. So, when Deysta heard about TCL’s Mother’s Day Makeover contest with Ridgedale Center, she instantly sent a letter. To her surprise, they won. Deysta says she had to nominate her daughter because she works so hard as a nurse and the two of them could use a girls’ day out.

I Love Lasik Winner  

A few months ago we teamed up with Joffe Medicenter for our I Love Lasik contest. We asked Twin Cities Live viewers why they wanted the gift of 20/20 vision.  Our producers read through hundreds of entries, but one caught our eye.
For years mom and wife Sharon Heinrich has had to put off Lasik because of health reasons. And as Twin Cities Live reporter shows us, this gift is long overdue.

Ambush Makeover: Stephanie   Back To Top

Every month we ask viewers to email us if they want to make a big change to their hair, clothes and makeup. A few weeks ago, an email was sent to the TCL inbox that we just couldn't ignore.  Stephanie, a mom from Maple Grove, wrote this:  "Help! My hair is turning gray - frizzy and brittle too. My stomach is bloated all the time. I'm embarrassed to even show you. There appears to be an elephant, with all his wrinkles, living on what was once my smooth forehead, and my skin is so dry I feel like a stale piece of bread. My daughter is graduating high school, how much more can I take?! I need bangs or Botox - or both, changes I must make! Please help a middle aged mom out, a makeover is what I'm talkin' bout."
