Feel awesome – No Exercise Required!

3 simple ways to take back control of our body

I love to change my hair.  And I’m not talking a trim here, maybe some highlights there.  I mean, extreme changes with colour, cut, styles.  I’ve been brown, blonde, black, red, blue, purple, pink, and recently silver/grey.  It’s been long, short, shaved, faux hawked, pulled forward, back, and everything in […]
