Beauty Tuesday: Fall From Head to Toe

In ♥ & Soul, Beauty Tuesday, Community, Health, Home Sweet Home, Public Interest, Relationships, Travel, Weekly Wonders, Yours Truly on 11/18/2014 at 08:00

Jen from FHHT, as in From Head to Toe, and I must be two great minds who think alike!

She also wanted to look cute for Farmers Market, as you can see …

When I went, I picked fresh veggies in plaid!

As someone with lots of locks, she showed how you can fake a bob and still rock!

Of course, you saw me with my bouffant

The latter video points out that you can get a free hair style from a major salon if you donate your hair on November 22nd!
