A Concert, a Link Up and Other Stuff Lately

Hey, friends! Checking in a little later than usual this morning, as I've been hanging out with my momma. She came down last night to watch Caroline while we went to the Dave Matthews concert in Tulsa! What a blast that was. Seriously, does Dave ever not put on a helluva show?

1) If you follow me on Instagram (my username is ablondeambition) you probably saw these pics yesterday, so I apologize for the repetitiveness.

I did soft waves for the show last night and was pleased with how they turned out - so easy!

Also, can I just sing the praises of my concert dress? So breezy and cool, plus it looked really cute underneath my new (and cheap!) denim vest. The perfect look for a casual show. (And by 'perfect', I mean comfy.)

Dress purchased from Anna's Armoire (look them up on Instagram at annasarmoire), denim vest from Target (here), necklace is old (very similar here)

2) Y'all excited for the special recipe edition of Confessional Friday tomorrow? You should be. I am. Get ready to link up and share your favorite easy dinner recipes.

3 ) Our house officially goes up for sale next Tuesday and I'm SO ready. I'm hoping we sell relatively quickly, but we will see. We have a couple houses picked out that we'd like to tour, so fingers crossed that this one sells and we get to put an offer on another.

4) I had heard that the e.l.f. brand of blush/bronzer was super comparable to NARS and - WOW - is it ever. I bought the e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzer in St. Lucia and loved how it gave subtle, sunkissed color for last night's concert look. I think it will be a summer staple.

What are you gals up to today? Big plans for Memorial Day weekend?


  1. Good luck on the sale of your home, I am sure it will go well! ELF is awesome!! Some of their products are way better than others, but their good products are AWESOME and a great price.


  2. I LOVE this ELF blush / bronzer combo. What a fun find!

  3. Will definitely have to try that blush/bronzer - the price on it is definitely more budget friendly than the NARS version (which I've had and loved!) And good luck on the house, Leslie! This is a great time to put it up for sale. Ours has been up for a few months, and we got an offer today! Hoping yours sells faster!

  4. So glad you posted this. I was literally just about to purchase the Nars Orgasm blush. I'll be trying ELF first! Yes please!

  5. Seriously loving that dress! I also love the E.L.F. contouring blush and bronzer!

  6. Love the hair & love that elf duo....You should try the elf HD powder...it's like the makeup forever one:)

  7. That outfit is adorable... and I love that ELF blush/bronzer combo. I have been very impressed with a lot of their cosmetics!

  8. Beautiful! Would love an updated skin care and makeup routine! Thanks girly!


What'cha got?
