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!

Hers & His: JORD Wood Watches


Long time no post, Lacquerbeanz!

I have been wanting to dedicate a month on my blog to "his and hers" posts -- focusing on everything from outerwear to underwear -- on the blog for some time now; well, I finally have the time, so welcome to his & her month! This month's posts will be all about various clothes and accessories that are great for both men and women -- and a cute way to step out in style as a couple without being overly in-your-face-obnoxious-look-aren't-we-cute-because-we-match about it. =D

Today I have a set of gorgeous wooden watches to show you from JORD. These watches are certainly "in" right now -- the first time the boyf and I wore our watches out, we were stopped by 6 or 7 complete strangers who wanted to know where we got out watches!

JORD is a company focused on developing watches for the modern crowd. On their website, they say 'We make our watches for people who don't just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go.' I dig it!

I obviously couldn't show you a photo without first painting my nails to watch my new watch! Shown below is from the Cora series in Zebrawood and Turqoise. Look how beautiful that color is!



On my nails I am wearing one of my all-time favorite polishes: Essie's In The Cab-ana. Look how perfect that match is!

JORD was generous enough to take part in my His & Hers month and send over a watch for my boyfriend to sport, as well. Awwww look how annoyingly cute we are:


Both of these watches are self-winding automatic mechanical watches (AKA they make that fun tiny little winding sound when you walk around, haha! ...and yes sometimes I just swing my arm around to wind it because I like the sound. Don't judge me.)

He chose to sport the Zebrawood and Dark Sandalwood from the Dover series for men. He was iffy about wearing a wooden watch at first, but believe me when I say he might as well glue it to his wrist, because he loves this watch so much now he almost never takes it off! Here's a solo shot of it showcasing my very artsy photography skills:


I know, I know. I'm so artsy. =P

Fall is officially here in New Jersey, and with this season comes LOTS of beer festivals. (YAY!) I wanted to show you what I wore to one of the beer fests we went to -- and how awesome this watch looks even with a casual, dress-down outfit:


Check out the full lineup below:


I think wooden watches are going to be the new must-have of the season -- so be sure to get your hands on one ASAP!

That's all for today, Lacquerbeanz -- but stay tuned and check back soon for my next his & hers post!
