Recently I had the chance to try out a pair of OOfos. I decided to get a pair of their thong flip flops since the warmer weather is slowly coming. I have heard a lot about these sandals from other blogs and they were always raving about how awesome they are so I was pretty excited myself! I couldn't wait to see what the big deal was about these and how they were so different from any other flip flop.
     "They created the revolutionary OOFOS brand experience powered by an innovative, visionary material called OOfoam. The patented foot-bed design delivers an unprecedented experience because of its unique energy absorption capabilities." From doing all sorts of tests, they found that OOfoam is 37% more impact absorbing than any other EVA, which is the most commonly used material in footwear! So that means obviously more comfort, reduces that tired feet feeling and cushion!
     I decided to get them in black so I can wear them with just about anything. I got them in a size 9 and they fit pretty true to size. Although I could probably get away with an 8 if I really wanted to. They are a little thicker than the flip flops that I am used to (old navy) but that didn't bother me. I slipped them on and instantly said "Ooooh" out loud. It was like slipping on pillows under my feet!
     They OOfos thong sandal fit snug on my foot and my feet felt nice and secure in them. My fiance asked where I was going because I was walking around the house in flip flops and I told him that these were like walking on pillows and I just didn't want to take them off. He thought I was crazy but could tell I was serious!! I really like them because they have a little bit of an arch to them which helps me specifically because I am flat footed and this helps my feet not hurt after a while. Also, if you think of regular flip flops, they are as flat as a board which wouldn't help my case at all!
     Although, style wise, they wouldn't be the first thing I would look at in a store. But after putting them on my feet and seeing how much better I felt after a day of wearing these as opposed to cheap flip flops, I would totally recommend these to anybody! Comfort and preventing pain in your feet is important and will make your feet thank you later!! I hope to see more styled designs come out soon too. Maybe a little thinner platform and thinner strap or maybe even some designs put on the straps?! What do you think? Be sure to check out their other shoes too by visiting their website!

     Apricot Collection is an online boutique that carries chic mid-range clothing lines, jewelry and accessories from North America and Europe! They carry a nice variety of clothing that can be worn everyday, to the office or even just sitting at home. Nowadays, that really helps because women usually have to buy separate clothes for work, at home and nights out. I found quite a few pieces on their store website that could be used for all three of those situations which is really great and makes my life simpler! 
     I had the chance to pick an item to review and I decided to try an adorable cardigan with ruffles at the bottom that gave it such a cute look and can be paired with almost anything! It also is something I haven't quite seen at any retail store so I had to have it! I actually noticed that with a lot of clothing they have, it's not just copycat products, they are unique and beautiful pieces!

     Pictured above is my adorable cardigan that is perfect for spring and when some days are just a little chilly! It's very lightweight and really adds some character to your outfit! As mentioned before this is one of those pieces that I could wear around all day at home, on a night out or even at work! It's very versatile which is what I love! I usually pair this cardigan with black leggings and a white or black undershirt but obviously there are more ways to wear this piece.

     The ruffles on the bottom are so cute! The cardigan is a great length and covers your bottom incase your a little more modest and don't want your bottom showing if you have leggings on.  Also, for girls like me lacking in the butt department a little, the ruffles help play it up a little. ;) I really love throwing this on and I always am getting asked where I got it because everyone loves the details of the ruffles and that they are on the bottom as opposed to a lot of other cardigans I see that have them going down the front.

     Another great way to wear this is to add a belt to it. It doesn't have a zipper so for the most part it will be open when wearing it but you can easily change the look and add on a belt! I love accessorizing and was extremely happy that I was able to do so with this cardigan. I noticed with the belt that it stayed closed and also gave a nice shape and look to the cardigan as well. I wear it like this all the time!!
