In case you haven’t noticed from my header, I have bangs again. I also layered my hair because my bangs from the past are to my shoulders and it had looked horrible when I wore my hair down, so I needed some layers to make it look a little better.
I know a lot of people buy TOMS shoes (aka Shoes of TOMorrow) these days because they like how they look or because they are extremely comfortable. I have had these red TOMS for a few months (maybe since the springtime) and you can tell I wear them often. My husband recently purchased a pair as well (pictured below). The reason why I bought them is because I adore their one for one program. I don’t know if you receive their newsletter/magazine, but they bring loads of shoes to various impoverished places around the world and give kids shoes as well as work on giving eye surgeries and giving away glasses to people who can’t afford them. Every time you buy one of their pairs of shoes or glasses, someone else gets a pair too. Really, you are buying two pairs of shoes, just one for a child in need of a pair. Once a week TOMS even will pick a customer and show them exactly where their shoes are going to. The most awesome part about it is that they return to the villages and give the children shoes as they grow out of their former pair. They build into communities and work with them. That’s what I adore most. While you might think these shoes are “ugly” as some have told me, or if you think they are a “hipster fad” as others have mentioned to me; they not only feel amazing to wear, but a precious child who didn’t have a pair of shoes, has one through your purchase, and that’s important.
