Beauty Buzz: OGX

Lately I have fallen in love with a the OGX brand of hair products. I have tried so many of them including: Brazilian Keratin Therapy, Argan Oil of Morocco, and so many others...but my current favorite (which is in my shower right now) has to be the Kukui Oil shampoo and conditioner. It is fantastic.

This product works so great on smoothing my hair on even the most humid of days. Also, my hair feels so thick and strong! Even my husband also uses it and said, "It makes my hair feel so full" which I said, "Better than it making it feel thin!"

What do you think of OGX products? Have you used them before? Which are your favorites?

My McCarren Park

dress- Romeo & Juliet Couture thrifted from Crossroads Trading Co./ wedge sandals- Bakers/ fringe purse- H&M

I'm not a nature girl at all. Dirt, bugs, allergies...I hate it all. But I have to say, I love that I live near a park while living in a city. Actually, now that I think of it I always have had a park in my backyard while in NYC. When we lived in the East Village we had Tompkins Square Park, when we lived in the Upper East Side we had Central Park, and now that we are in North Williamsburg we have McCarren Park which I love so much! It's full or pretty flowers, has a great farmer's market, and Rocko's favorite dog run. It's our little part of nature that we need in this concrete jungle.

Rocko is loving this warm and sunny weather.

Isn't this dress the cutest? I picked it up at Crossroads Trading Co. the other week. Can you believe that this adorable scuba swing dress was marked down to $6??? SIX DOLLARS! I love that store. I always have such luck there picking up great second hand finds!

I hope you all have a lovely Saturday! Get out there and enjoy it!

Swans Crossing

Truth be told, I have been wanting to share this fabulous swan dress with you all for a while. But I have been wanting to use Swans Crossing as a title for this post for even longer. If you didn't watch the teen soap Swans Crossing in the early 90's I don't think we can be friends any longer. Seriously.

swan printed dress (same style/different print): Brooklyn Industries/ oxfords (same style/different color): Kayleen by Los Angeles available at ModCloth/ necklace: gift/ lipstick: Russian Red by MAC

Besides dodging my allergies left and right (they are so bad this year!), I'm planning on meeting up with my little cousin who is visiting his girlfriend in town tonight, off to spend my Sunday with the in-laws in Long Island, and then just relaxing at home on my Monday off. 

What's everyone else up to this weekend?

Take It To The Max

Summer is almost here, and it's time to get bold! Maxi dresses in bold prints are the must have of the season...and I'm loving it. Nothing is more comfortable than a flowing maxi dress for a summer day. What I love about them is how versatile they are. Perfect for work, great for a lazy weekend, and a must wear for a night out. Put the mini dresses away...if you want all eyes on you, wear one of these amazing printed maxi dresses. You'll be sure to get noticed.

Wanderlust Maxi Dress available at LOFT- $79.50

Jupiter Sunshine Maxi available at Free People- $98
