Repeat After Me: I Promise to Keep Shaving My Legs Even Though Summer's Ending Repeat After Me:  I Promise to Keep Shaving My Legs Even Though Summer's Ending

Raise your hand if you're secretly a little relieved that summer's almost over just so you can stop shaving your legs! I would cop to that sentiment instantly because that's precisely the way I used to feel when fall was around the corner. Then, I moved to Los Angeles and all bets were off.

My Go-To Travel Makeup Bag: Don't Leave Home Without It My Go-To Travel Makeup Bag: Don't Leave Home Without It
