A Frugal Makeover

My sweet Sarah and I today shared some girl time. We treated ourselves to small ice cream cones at a local fast food restaurant and then swung by a local discount store, where we perused nail polish, some much needed make-up for Mom, and other feminine treats. On a whim, we decided to give me a makeover. We bought a hair color for me that was on sale and then went to Fantastic Sam's to get me a quick cut. I was nervous, because I'm never sure if what I'm trying to convey will actually come across accurately to the hairstylist and we weren't at an expensive place where we could even choose whom we got...Anyway, we crossed our fingers and dove in, so to speak...

Here is the "Before"...

And here is the "After"...
~ The best part is that I only spent $25 in total for everything and I feel like new!
Whoopee!!
Have a great day ~ Elizabeth

And you looked so beautiful! Even the before was wonderful...but now you have a new summer look which sparkles. how fun to be able to do it with *S*! You look like a star.
Th reception took place near Farmington. President Hinckley's son, Richard married them that morning.:) He spoke of his dad and quoted a lot of what he had said at weddings. Elder Hinckley and his wife Jane were at the reception. The yard was spectacular and probably would have to have a full time gardener!
I hope you and your family have a fabulous time and it won't be too hot. Just enjoy every minute of the lush green beauty!

Love *C*

I love your new haircut!It's lovely. I just got a new haircut, too. Went from medium-length to just above the shoulders. It does make you feel new, doesn't it?

Nice cut! It looks like they layered it? That color really warms you up and brings out your eyes. It makes me want to color my hair! You look pretty. :)
