Hair extensions have always been something I was curious to try. You see tons of celebrities rocking gorgeous long locks and can’t help but think “I can have that kind of hair, right?” Right. When Irresistible Me reached out to me to see if I wanted to test out their hair extensions I jumped at the opportunity. I was sent a set of their Silky Touch extensions in the color Silky Chocolate Brown. I was a little nervous about the color matching my hair. Since I have highlights, the extensions ended up matching my roots perfectly not but quite the ends. The length I chose was 22″ – 200g ($209). I figured it would be better to get longer and cut them if need be rather than vice versa. At first when I received the extensions I thought the length was a little too long, but once I clipped them into my hair I realized they were the perfect length. As for color, after testing out the extensions I realized that curling both my hair and the extensions helped them to blend perfectly.
The set comes with 10 pieces, 1 pc of 4 clips (7.5″), 2 pcs of 3 clips (6″), 5 pcs of 2 clips (4″), 2 pcs of 1 clip (1.2″). I ended up using all the extensions minus the 2 1 clips and 2 of the 2 clips. They give you A LOT of hair to work with, which is great.
Here is a before and after picture of what I look like with the extensions.
The extensions made a dramatic difference in how my hair looked. I used to think I had long hair until I saw what I looked like with extensions in! I have to say, I’m absolutely in love with these extensions. The hair is 100% Remy human hair and feels so soft and silky. The clip ins make them extremely easy to take on and off.
My roommate (who is a hair genius) also did this cute fishtail braid with my extensions in. The length really makes the braid stand out!
Overall, I’m extremely impressed with these Irresistible Me hair extensions. If you are looking to try some hair extensions. Definitely go check out Irresistible Me. They have a variety of hair colors and lengths to choose from. Have you guys ever tried extensions? Let me know in the comments below what you think!

While I was in Korea, my friend Jenna reached out to me on Instagram saying that she was also in Korea at the time. We decided to meet up for brunch in her town. After brunch, Jenna decided to show me around the market area where we did a little shopping. I had told Jenna about all the makeup I was purchasing and she asked if I tried Lash King. I told her I hadn’t so we ran to the drugstore and I picked up the mascara. Jenna had said it was her favorite mascara that she has tried so far in Korea, and I’m excited to try it out! Unlike the other products I purchased, this was the only non-Korean makeup that I got. So far I’ve tried the Clio Pen liner and the Eye Brow pencil from Etude House and I’m OBSESSED with them both. Can’t wait to try the rest of these goodies out!

As you all know, I took a family vacation to Korea the other week. My favorite part (besides seeing family) was the shopping. I was extremely excited to take advantage of all the beauty boutiques in Korea. I did my research and made a list of different brands I wanted to check out. I ended up purchasing quite a few amount of beauty products, so I’ve decided to split the posts up.
First up: lips. Now I actually purchased another lipgloss, but I’ve seemed to have lost it somewhere along the travels…and I’m hoping it turns up soon. Out of the three above, I’m definitely loving the Innisfree lipstick the best. It has one of the creamist lip formula I have ever tried. They remind me of the Revlon Lip Butters, but creamier. The best part about Korean makeup was the price. These lip products ranged from $4-$14. For drugstore prices, I was shocked at how great the quality was.

I’m a huge proponent of skincare, but I try to keep it simple…mostly because I’m lazy. There are two key factors I take into account when it comes to my skincare routine; Moisture and SPF. I have normal to dry skin, so I need all the help I can get to keep my skin from flaking off. SPF is also a huge factor, I try to make sure that I put some sort of SPF on my face every morning because no one wants wrinkles. Here are the products that I use both in the morning, and at night.

It’s a new year, which means it’s time for some new beauty purchases. This is what I’m currently coveting on Sephora.com. If I could I would probably just live in the store, but since that’s a little unrealistic, I like to make my house feel as if I’m in it. A lot of these products have been on my wish list for a while now. It’s about time I take the plunge.
one// Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil – Last time I went into Sephora, the lovely sales assistant put some of this on my face before applying foundation. That was one of the only times that my foundation lasted for hours on end. I haven’t even given it another try, but I already swear by it!
two// Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream – I’m kind of addicted to eye creams. If I don’t put it on every morning and night I feel like I’ll instantly get winkles. I’ve heard a lot of really good things about this eye cream, and we could all use a little extra hydration in that area.
three// Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish – I recently just cut a foot off my hair, and with that came off a lot of the extra weight and volume. Now I’m all about texturizing sprays to give my hair an extra lift.
four//NEST Wasabi Pear Body Cream – I’ve been obsessed with NEST fragrances for a while now, especially the wasabi pear scent. It’s the perfect mixture of sweetness with a slight crisp.
five// Supergoop! Forever Young Hand Cream – Your hands are the first place to show signs of aging. This hand cream has SPF 40, so it’s perfect to keep those hands looking young.
six// Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation – According to all the beauty gurus on YouTube, this foundation is a must have. I haven’t worn powdered foundation in a long time so I really want to give this a try.
seven// Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed – I’ve tried the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in liquid form, and it was one of the most beautiful highlights I have ever used. However, I ended up dropping the bottle and got the liquid highlighter all over my bathroom floor. For my clumsy self, I think the pressed powder might be the go-to version.
eight// Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl – I’m always looking for that perfect red lipstick, and I’ve heard from multiple people that Nars’ Dragon Girl is that lip color. Need. It. Now.
