On the weekend I did a photoshoot in the city with Jo! He used a reflector which made such an amazing difference to the photos, by brightening them up with the light bouncing off it, but without that artificial flat look from an artificial flash. I was so pleased with the results! :) Plus he was so good at directing me with my poses!

What I thought was really cool about the photos is that even though they're in Sydney, they sort of had a London vibe to them (until you can see the Harbour Bridge in the background!)

Irresistible Me also sent me these amazingly generous and voluminous hair extensions! I took some photos of the packaging and the 'before' and 'after' of putting them on, which you can see below. I'm also wearing them in these pics from the photoshoot. I only used a two-clip hair piece on the left side of my hair, to add a little bit of volume and bounce.

Irresistible Me Hair extensions
Range: Royal Remy
Length and weight: 22 inch 200 g
Colour: Natural black
With Irresistible Me you can customise the weight and length of your hair extensions you purchase.

I chose 200g, which comes with:
  • 1 pc of 4 clips (7.5 in)
  • 2 pcs of 3 clips (6 in)
  • 5 pcs of 2 clips (4 in)
  • 2 pics of 1 clip (1.2 in)
The Irresistible Me box came with two hair 'bundles' wrapped up in fishnets.

What I was amazed to discover, was that after untying the rubber bands, there were sooo many hair pieces that were actually wrapped up in them! So could you believe that bundle 2. actually unravels itself to all of these nine hair pieces below?

There were so many hair pieces to choose from, and I felt spoilt for choice! As you can see, the Irresistible Me 'Royal Remy' set comes with hair pieces with 1 clip, 2 clips, 3 clips, even 4 clips! The more clips the wider the hair piece and more dramatic the effect it will have on your hair.

Personally, as my hair is already quite long and thick, I used a 3-clip in the back, and two 1-clips on either side of my head. Putting a 3-clip hair piece around the back of your head really helps in lifting up the volume of your crown. Here is a before and after:
So the added volume on the top of my head (the crown) is thanks to the 3-clip that I inserted around the back. I created extra volume on the sides with the 1-clip that I placed on both the left and right sides of my head, which created a subtle but noticeable difference.

Overall, I was really, really pleased with the results I got from the Irresistible Me hair extensions!

They looked natural:
The colour and texture of the hair looked really seamless when mixed in with my natural hair. They're made from 100% human remy hair and you can really feel the authenticity from the very first touch. They have a really decent bounce and weight to them and it was really easy to curl them as well.

The extensions are also designed to be thick from the top to the end, but slightly thinner at the bottom as with your natural hair. They also add an extra treatment to the extensions to give them a really silky feel, as if you've already put on your smoothing serum and hair treatment as you normally do.

They offer a lot of flexibility:
I received so many different hair pieces so I have a lot of flexibility in shaping and styling my hair. If I cut my hair or thin it out I know I have a lot of different hair pieces I can play with to fill out the volume.

It was very easy to choose the right colour:
At first I actually requested the 'chocolate brown' because my natural hair colour is quite light in the sun. But I watched this video on choosing the right hair colour which shows the colour options more clearly in video, and even compares the different shades side by side. I was then able to switch to 'natural black' instead!

  4. Cute look, and I could barely even tell those extensions were in, I could see that your hair looked fuller but they didn't look like extensions <3

  5. These photos are gorgeous, Izzy, and I'm defo getting some sort of London vibe. I'm in LOVE with your skirt; it's high waisted, it's leather, and it's in such a sophisticated colour! Pairing it with stripes is perfect! And I've always wanted to try hair extensions just because it'll be so much easier to add volume and texture; these ones look amazing on you!

  24. Pretty good post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed reading your blog posts. Any way I'll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon. Just watch it; Andrew awce Myland recently purchased the area at 39-47 Union St in Auckland. The site is large enough to accommodate up to three towers of apartments but that isn’t what is going to happen. Myland wants to do something more than just build a group of apartment buildings and shove everyone right next to each other. Instead, Fawcet and Myland want to build much higher standard of living with a lower density of residents.
