Leslie Loves...{1.14}

Two of my favorite things about this whole blogging game: sharing my "loves" and linking up for the "Five on Friday" posts. Well, it just so happens that I have five fabulous "loves" to share with you today, so I'm killing two birds with one stone combining this "Leslie Loves..." post with the "Five on Friday" link-up hosted by April {A.Liz Adventures}, Christina {North Carolina Charm}, Darci {The Good Life} and Natasha {Hello! Happiness}!

One: Sara Happ Lip Scrub

As ick-tastic as it is to admit, sometimes my lips are a dry, flaky, cracked mess. {Perhaps it's due to my obsession with long-wear lip color that "supposedly" dries out your lips, but whatever...} Anyway, let me introduce you to what will likely become your lips' BFF...

Simply stated, this is a tiny little jar of A-MAZingness! You just apply a minuscule amount to your lips and wipe it off with a cloth or tissue...and wahlah {however you spell that word that indicates "magical"}, the dead skin is gone and your lips have never felt softer! won't even believe how smooth your lipstick/gloss goes on and how long the color lasts after you've used the Sara Happ Lip Scrub. The price {$24} might seem a bit excessive, but this small jar will last for-ev-er...I'm telling you, it's WORTH.EVERY.PENNY! 

I've only tried the vanilla bean {which smells and tastes like dessert straight out of my grandma's kitchen!}, but it also comes in Sparkling Pink Grapefruit, Sparkling Peach, Red Velvet, Blood OrangeBrown Sugar, Crème Brûlée, and Green Apple.
This is one of the bags I raved about in my "Leslie Loves..." post about spring/summer handbags {here}...and now it's 30% off here


Three: Michael Kors 'Damita' Wedge Sandal

I've been on the lookout for these super cute wedges since Easter...when I nearly stole them off Kelli's {my sister-in-law} feet! I've been needing a new pair of neutral wedges, and these totally fit the bill! They're perfect to wear with dresses, shorts, pants...pretty much any outfit! These wedges are not in my possession yet {currently en route!}, so I can't speak to comfort/fit...but Kelli {and all the reviewers} claims they are very comfortable! All of the Michael Kors shoes I've had in the past have fit true to size.

Four: Kendra Scott 'Elle' Earrings

These beauties can {and will} make an outfit! And they come in SO.MANY.COLORS! Every girl needs at least one pair of Kendra Scott 'Elle' Earrings.

Five: Marilyn Teasing Brush


I've proclaimed more than once how much I love BIG.TEXAS.HAIR...and this, my friends, is the tool I use to get it.  This 100% boar bristle brush with a raised center row adds the perfect amount of texture and volume to your hair. It's currently on sale here.  

Happy Friday!

What do you think of my "loves"? 
What are some of your "loves"?


  1. Oh my gosh I want to get a teasing brush but I'm so scared I'll wreck my hair haha seems so odd but they work wonders! Those wedges need to be in my closet and I agree with you on the lips- Mary Kay makes a good lip scrub too! Mine peel a lot (ew right?) Happy weekend girl!! xoxo
