Well, haven't I gone up in the world? One day it is Hever Castle...then it is Australia for little Miss traveller over here. I have been so incredibly lucky to visit Melbourne, Sydney and then Singpore (which of course gets it own post). A 2343554 hour alone flight was very very worth it for this scenery don't you agree? There isn't much point me rambling on when a photo really does say 1000 words in this case, but there wasn't one part of Australia I didn't love, the culture, lifestyle (hello good cocktail bars), beaches and the weather all have a place in my heart from now on. Even if I did have to wear the most ridiculous hat horse ridding on the beach, it wasn't the best way to realise I just do not suit white hats.
I have been a hair extensions snob. And I only really wear one or two brands, not much else is acceptable for me. So what has happened here? I have been converted to another brand, one that doesn't break the bank and what for this - doesn't look like I am wearing any hair extensions (I hope), hello Irresistible Me Hair Extensions.
I opted for 200g of these human hair extensions at 16 inches ($74/£49 ish) as I hate my hair to look to Barbie-esque, and they were from their Silky Touch range (they do lots of others, and this is the cheapest). For us hair extensions geeks, yes this is of course remy hair, and with the option of 200g this is the thickest amount of hair I can find from a hair extension brand.
When this little black box arrived, fully equipped with a colour test ready see-through plastic pouch, I couldn't quite believe how much hair I had in my hands. So much so that I really struggled to photograph these without dropping on the floor. And then another complete shock, the colour matched perfectly. Only having two or three blonde options I had already placed these extensions in my 'well I'll wear them in a ponytail' kind of extensions. But after a quick chat with the lovely lot at Irresistible Me HQ they helped matched me, and sorted out my weight issues - hair that is. Could you imagine? I am not entirely sure wear the Irresistible Me HQ is actually, but they are certainly not in the UK - yet they still arrived within four days. UK brands, take note please, when I order hair I need ASAP.
All that hair is divided up in to ten wefts of different sizes, so I can place them strategically around my head, depending how my hair has decided to fall that day. Each one has between one and four clips, depending on the width, and one super thick weft which looks like a wig on a strip. Yet this mass of hair blends in amazingly well with these easy to use clips, and it ridiculously light. In fact, the entire full head of hair is so lightweight, I did have a mid day panic that I had lost some along way as I couldn't believe I had a full set in. I hadn't by the way.
The best thing about these, and why they have become my number one is that they are the perfect no hair extensions kind of extensions. They are thinner at the ends, but not as the quality is a bit rubbish, but so they mimic your own hair. Nothing is wrong with these at all; they style well, hold a curl, don't knot up, or as some have done, don't fall out my head. If youy can't tell already I am just head over heels for these extensions, and for a stupidly low price of about £49? (Excuse my conversion skills, blame Google) I am already eyeing up my next set in a slightly longer length....and then maybe some shorter ones for my lazy days...are hair wardrobes a thing? Well they should be, and full of Irresistible Me in my opinion.
Have you tried Irresistible Me Hair Extensions?
I don't think I have ever said 'yes' so quickly to anything in my life. But the words 'beauty' and 'chocolate' in the same sentence? Yeah I was pretty brisk in my decision. Luckily this isn't one of bad haste as I have right here in my hands The Worlds First Beauty Chocolate - Estherchoc. Yes there is now such a thing, and gone are the days when chocolate was bad for you and your skin. Problem there sorted.
As after 10 years of extensive research, Cambridge Chocolate Technologies have launched this dark chocolate in bar form (and cute box), rich with some antioxidants which are 'scientifically proven to improve microcirculation and raise oxygen levels in the skin'. Not entirely sure what that means, but Estherchoc go on the say that when consumed daily (amen) this portion set bar can slow down the process of 'free radical formation inside the skin and, therefore, curb the ageing process'. There is more informative reading on their website, but cutting to the good bits; each bar has 38 calories, doesn't taste bitter at all and therefore guilt free so in my mind is worth the £35 for a relaxed mind.
Also available in a limited edition festive box, exclusively from Harrods and www.esthechoc.com, this is certainly a indulgent approach towards skincare, not to mention a good Christmas present for those people who have everything, and one idea I can see taking off.
I haven't been eating this enough (and I have never said that about chocolate before) to see any results as yet as I would imagine I would need to get through the entire box (shame) and about 3 weeks worth of munching, but for the dedication to this blog I will fully oblige....
