DeArcy Vaughan made a decision with complete intentionality. One year ago this month, she ventured on a journey of weight loss and transformation. She was determined to “make herself” over. To be better. To “Be Balanced.” Within 12 months, she managed to lose 70 pounds. We all know, losing weight is never easy. Especially as we age. DeArcy is a 38 year old pharmacist by trade, a busy working mother of 2 younger children, and she is getting ready to launch her own “Be Balanced” center in October, to help other women obtain their own heath goals.
What I love about DeArcy, is how laid back she is. And her genuine kind hearted smile. She is new to St. Johns County, but not new to connecting, so it was no surprise that she and Mallory (our hair hottie) really hit it off. Mallory enjoyed DeArcy, as she appreciated how “open” she was. There seems to be a budding relationship between these two now. Our Makover Model loved how talented and fun Mallory was. She said she has never had a hair stylist give so many practical tips and good instructions for how to manage her hair at home!
A mini “AFTER” interview:
SJM: What is your favorite thing about living in St. Johns county?
DeArcy: Is it cliche to say the schools? (Chuckles) And….how close I live to the outlet malls!!!
SJM: What was your favorite part of the makeover experience?
DeArcy: I loved how Mallory admitted to “FB stalking” me to get an idea of my lifestyle…We had a great consultation, and a color/cut that suits me. Also. my husband was floored by my transformation. He keeps complimenting me, and has admitted to feeling like he is “cheating on me.” This hasn’t happened before…
SJM: What was your biggest takeaway?
DeArcy: I learned that Fake Eye Lashes are the BOMB! I believe I will be addicted now…
SJM: What was the biggest change out of your comfort zone?
DeArcy: The clothes! I would have never picked out those skinny jeans and top, which were VERY comfortable.
