Had a date with Ai one Saturday. I was going to get a haircut and a perm at this Japanese salon and the Yelp reviewers' only complaint about the place was that they didn't speak English very well. So naturally, I enlisted Ai's help. And it was a good excuse to spend some much needed girl time with her. I ended up loving my hair and I'm definitely going back to the salon because they were fabulous. The rest of the day was spent shopping, mainly in Japan Town for the most ridiculous Hello Kitty stuff, one of which ended in both of us buying matching Hello Kitty wallets. I know. We ended the night with a photoshoot back at her apartment that was supposed to be slumber party themed but turned into a "what can we do with these Minnie ears? And Hello Kitty shorts?" As always, love this girl.
