Do you know what time it is...? [GIVEAWAY!]

...it's VALENTIME! ....nailed it.

No, but seriously -- it's almost Valentine's Day -- and time with the people you love is time well spent!

This Valentine's Day I am lucky enough to be flying down to Florida to spend some time with the boyf -- and I'm bringing my brandy-new Jord Wood Watch -- Sully in natural green sandalwood -- to keep our Valentine's festivities on schedule! (I make big deals out of not-so-important holidays ... today I will be celebrating World Nutella Day and loving every minute of it. YES, today is WORLD NUTELLA DAY. Go eat some and celebrate.

So, aside from loving Nutella, I am very much head-over-heels-in-love with my boyfriend. We'll be spending our ValenTIME (did it again, can't stop) at the beach, snuggling watching Netflix, eating dinner in our PJs, and enjoying the gorgeous weather. I can't think of a more perfect thing! :-)

I am up in New Jersey, where the weather is not so gorgeous right now (I can hear the freezing rain outside as I am typing this...lovely), so I'll be traveling to the airport in some comfy sweats that just so happen to compliment my new watch quite nicely! Check it out here:

I've partnered with JORD to give away a limited quantity of e-gift cards worth $25 each for Valentine's Day! If you've had your eye on one of these lovely wood watches, be sure to enter to redeem your gift code. They'll be good through the end of March! Entering is easy; click here to get started!

 It will ask you for your email and your favorite JORD watch (so many to choose from, I know!); once you hit enter, your code will be emailed directly to you.

Let me know what watch you chose in the comments!

Here's another shot of my new watch:

Happy Valentine's Day, my Loves!


It's December so I'm allowed to post snowflakes!

This is one of my favorite and most popular manicures I have ever done -- and I still can't get enough of it! :-) I think soon I will post an updated version of it and see if I like it better.


IrresistibleMe 100% Human Remy Hair Extensions | Review

Products provided for review.

Good Morning, Lacquerbeanz! Today I have some gorgie hair extensions to show you from IrresistibleMe Hair Extensions. IrresistibleMe is a growing brand of 100% natural Remy clip-in hair extensions, hair accessories and hair tools, specializing in high quality extensions at great prices.

IrresistibleMe has several lines of clip-in extensions to choose from, giving you the opportunity to achieve your desired results. So, whether you're looking for longer hair, silkier hair, or just want to add some extra volume at the ends, IrresistibleMe is the way to go!

I have wanted to try human hair extensions for a long time, not because I was unhappy with my length, but because the ends of my hair are very damaged and thin (and I know I should get 4 inches chopped off, but I refuse, so shush) and I wanted to fix that, and add some length while I was at it! That's why I decided to try out the Royal Remy line of extensions.

From the site:

Royal Remy is our premium line of clip-in hair extensions. We use top of the line hair and a special treatment unique to Irresistible Me to add extra silkiness and durability and make these the best hair extensions you can find. The thickness of the hair is amazing – it’s the same from the top to the bottom of the weft which will provide a lot of body and bounce while wearing them. This line is very easy to blend with your own hair and can be very easily washed, heat styled, cut and colored. Ultimately, the Royal Remy hair will last longer and is the closest match you can find to completely unprocessed hair. If you’re looking for longevity and volume, the Royal Remy line is the best choice you could make. 

Look how gorgeous:

I had am ombre color done on my hair about a year ago, and because of this I decided it would be better to get a shade lighter for my extensions so that they would blend better with the ends of my hair. Mission accomplished!

For reference, here is a rando photo of me without the extensions in. Clearly you can see the difference in length, but you can also definitely see how much fuller my ends look with the extensions in compared to my natural locks: Oh hi mom! =P

This is my first experience with extensions -- so while I cannot compare them to other ones I've tried, I can say this: they look and feel like human hair (duh Ariel, they ARE human hair), and they feel SO much healthier than my own hair! They aren't so heavy that I feel like they weigh anything down, and they are very high quality -- clips included -- which means they stayed very secure in my hair all day (which is VERY important to me -- can't have a clump of hair fall off at dinner, LOL!).

Each box you buy contains MORE than enough clip in extensions to give you a beautiful, full head of luscious hair. The website allows you to match your own hair color with their colors, and gives you LOTS of options for both length and type of extension.

Did I mention they have a 25% off Halloween sale going on right now!? Don't miss it!

Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think of IrresistibleMe!
