Hey everyone! I had a wonderful weekend at the Lifelight festival in South Dakota this past weekend and I am totally pooped. Very glad today was Labor Day because we didn't even get home until 5 AM this morning! 6 hour drive, more than half of which was through thick fog. Red lights on the back of semi-trucks look CREEPY through dense fog but we gladly made it home safe.
I tried to take a photo, but with no tripod, this is all I could get from our parking lot. Very creepy.
Anyway, at the festival we had plenty to be inspired by. Perfect weather, good music, and really cool performers like Superchick whose lead singer is completely gorgeous and had the most amazing mohawk pomp ever. Burgundy eye makeup! I totally have a girl crush. Check out the youtube vid of one of my favorite songs by them, "We Live" here
One of my bffs, Hannah, is a genius with hair and did this amazing french braided pony on her sister Elizabeth.
Elizabeth was cool enough to be our guinea pig throughout the weekend since she rarely wears much makeup or does her hair in crazy ways, although her gorgeous blonde hair is TOTALLY NATURAL! Her favorite colors are pink and purple so I did a rock star look on her.
The concerts were nice during the daytime weather, but nothing compares to the nights. A bajillion people were there. Just a ridiculous number, and it extends just as much to the left and right of this photo. I'm not tall enough to get the whole crowd!
Yummy festival food like funnel cake which we got twice. :3
Just me in my festival gear. The nights were cold but nothing layers and a silly hat can't fix.
And of course my fav-fav, Family Force 5. Last band of the last day on the Souled Out stage! Totally crazy and awesome, all while wearing football padding. So hilarious.
Here's some video I took of their performance last night. They are so crazy, I LOVE it!
I had sooo much fun and I can't wait to go back! :D
One more reminder, there are still a couple days left to enter the Mineral Magic Cosmetics Giveaway so don't forget! For now, I'm gonna wash up and get to bed. Hopefully I won't feel so jet-lagged tomorrow. :)
