  2. I'm right there with you on the showering one! It takes way too long AFTER

    1. i'm so glad others agree with me on this!

    2. I second the motion, showering in the winter sucks especially because wet long hair is freezing! Love this post by the way Jenna!

  3. What a fun thing to do! Your answers are too cute!! Where in CA did you live?

  4. You should totally move back to California! I would love to have another So Cal blogger near me!
    I'm glad I'm not the only one who watched bad girls club! hahaha
    Amen on the showering and the's SO easy to be a male!!
    Redken All Soft Shampoo + Conditioner is the best. hands down. I'll never buy another brand ever again. And once you move back to Cali, let's have a blate so we can eat mexican food. :D

  5. I absolutely LOVE redken shampoo! But it is so expensive! I always get it in July during the Sally's Beauty 20 sale! At least, I think it's Sally's beauty. I agree with you on so many things! Newest follower! Thanks for finding my blog pretty lady!
