Hair Products That I Use and Love


Today, I thought I would share the hair products that I use with all of you. I have two different shampoos and conditioners that I like to switch out. The Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco by Organix are the ones that I use the majority of the time. These smell delicious and are great for restoring shine. They can be purchased at your local drugstore. I use the KMS California ones if I am going to dress up and wear my hair down. These are great for smoothing the hair and reducing frizz. I have naturally wavy hair, so when I want it to look nice and extra straight, I use these. I purchased these at my local hair salon.

I apply Biolage Smoothing Gel prior to drying my hair. It is great for controlling frizz and flyaways. I only apply about a pea size amount when I use it, so it seems to last for a very long time.

I use this Salon Tech flat iron daily to straighten my hair. I section off my hair and then lightly spray the hair with Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection Spray prior to flat ironing my hair. This helps to protect the hair from the heat and keep it from drying out. I purchased both the flat iron and spray at my hair salon.

Last, I lightly spray the hair with Big Sexy Hair Spray. This spray provides a firm hold, but is not too sticky. It can be purchased at your local drug store. Thank you so much for reading!

Hello! I hope that you had a lovely weekend! I styled this outfit over the weekend. I purchased this top last year at Francesca's. I love it paired with this necklace.

Weekend Recap of NC Trip

My husband and I spent this past weekend in Cary, NC. We arrived in Cary on Thursday a.m. Then we decided to head to Raleigh for the afternoon to check out Cameron Village and do a little shopping and eating. We had a lot of fun! Below are a few purchases that I made.


Friday, we spent the day with my husband's family that were in town for the wedding. We attended a rehearsal dinner BBQ for my husband's cousin. I ate some of the best BBQ that I have ever had! I also got to try sweet potato cake, which was amazing! (I thought it tasted like carrot cake).


Saturday evening we attended the wedding for my husband's cousin at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, NC. It was seriously one of the most beautiful weddings that I have ever attended! Everyone had a blast! Below are pictures of my husband, Joe and I at the reception.


Sunday, we spent the entire day on the road driving back to Indiana. It was a fun weekend, but it is always good to be back home. Hope that you had a great weekend! Thanks for reading!
