Springing Forward

What an amazing day Monday was. We are thinking of changing Ambush Pittsburgh to Pamper Pittsburgh — it really isn’t like these women really need a makeover. It’s more about treating someone who really needs a day to themselves and making them feel good. It’s doing things like this for people that makes us really feel like we have the best job in the entire world! It’s been a little while since we were able to do an Ambush and we really couldn’t wait to jump right back in!  So meet Liz, our Ambush nominee who was treated to a day of pampering that she truly deserves! Liz was nominated by her best friend, Christy…

Dear Julie & Brooke, I love that you two do this makeover for deserving ladies. It is so incredibly kind and wonderful of you to put your time, resources and energy into blessing these people. I have a nomination for a beautiful friend of mine, Liz. I would love to see her honored and blessed by this makeover.  She has endured so much hardship in the last three, going on 4 years. To see her feel great about herself would be awesome — she is a beautiful person inside and out. — Christy

We surprised Liz that morning at Panera Bread, she thought she was just having a cup of coffee with her BF!

We then took the ladies shopping at H&M — we had $100 to play with and they have such great pieces for the prices…

Next! Off the salon where the real fun begins…hair and makeup =)

Liz’s cut and color already looked great, so Brooke gave her a relaxing shampoo and styled her hair just perfectly!

Now time for makeup! Liz is a natural beauty…makeup just accentuates the great features she already has…

We really had the best time with Liz and Christy — thank you guys so much.

Last, we would like to dedicate this blog post to Liz’s husband Matt who lost his battle with Cancer last July. He is pictured with Liz’s two beautiful children, Grace and Griffin ❤
