IrresistibleMe Hair Extensions

***Disclaimer*** This product was sent to me for the purpose of reviewing, however, this does not alter my opinion or views on the product.
The lovely Adriana from Irresistible Me Hair Extensions got in touch with me in September to send me a package to review, and of course I couldn't resist!

Irresistible Me Hair extensions are made from Remy Hair. If you don't know much about Remy Hair, it is considered to be the finest quality of human hair as the hair is collected from the donor's head and preserved to ensure all the cuticles are healthy, living, and facing in the natural growing direction and is only lightly processed.

Adriana asked me to choose the length and colour of my package and when I went to look at the site I was totally overwhelmed, there were just so many choices!! Luckily they have a few tools to help you out with this.

 Firstly I needed to sort out what length extensions I wanted. I didn't want them too long as I mainly wanted them for volume. I ended up choosing the 20" extensions based on this chart that they sent me (

The next step was to select the colour. Irresistible Me have a very handy video (below) that shows you the colours side by side and I opted for Royal Chocolate Brown. As my hair colour varies in different lighting, and as it fades to a lighter shade in Summer, I felt like Royal Chocolate Brown would work best for me.

Once I sent Adriana my selections it took about three weeks for the package to arrive. PS - how cute is that illustration on the inside?!

The first thing I noticed when I opened up the package was that it was split into two sections. The small section is packaged separately in order for you to colour match and check the length without ruining the integrity of the full set of extensions, in case you want to exchange or return them. The section that contains the set of extensions contains a seal and once that has been broken you are no longer able to return/exchange the item.

 Exchanges and returns are free for US customers and unfortunately international customers will have to pay the shipping fees of their exchange or return.

When I opened the packet I was astounded and how much hair there was in the set and without a doubt is the biggest set I have ever seen. The package contained a total of nine pieces/wefts and they were quite heavy.

On first inspection I was super happy with the colour, but the more I looked at them, the lighter they looked than what was shown on the video and on the website. The colour I received looked more like Royal Medium Brown than Royal Chocolate Brown. If I had paid for these I would've most likely returned them for a different colour but on the plus side they're Remy hair so I can just dye them to match so I wasn't too concerned.

Next task was to try them on. Seriously, I wish this was how my hair was in real life. When I was younger my hair was this thick and full, but as I've gotten older and my health has gone downhill my hair is so fine and wiry, it's kinda depressing - lol!
Hair Extensions (Without Flash)
The extensions are really easy to apply and the clips are super strong and durable. I didn't feel like they were going to fall out at all and they felt super secure. The hair didn't tangle as much as I imagined it would and they are super manageable with just a light brush through. Once they're 'lived in' a little more I think they will look much more natural and closer to my hair texture.
Before and After (With Flash)
As you can see from the before and after photo, the colour selection of the extensions are way off with a flash but in real life the colours do blend a lot better, as seen in the previous picture. What I love most about this product is the amount of volume it gives to my hair and the extra ounce of confidence it gives me.

Prices start from $79USD with every new customer receiving 20% off their first order. They also offer free international shipping on orders over $150USD. Irresistible Me stock clip in extensions, full lace wigs, hair tools, hair care and accessories.

Scratch Subscription Box - March 14

Lua P from
 This month's box was designed by fashion blogger Lua P from and it comes with the following items:
  • 3x Nail Wrap Sets
  • Circle Studs
  • Star Studs
  • 1x Mini Color Club Polish in Williamsburg
  • 1x Nail Art Tweezers
  • 1x Heart Shaped Ring (gift)

 These nail art tweezers are seriously a GOD SEND and I don't know why I never thought to buy these before (well now I don't have to). If you're some one who likes to put all sorts of embellishments on your nail these are a MUST HAVE!




As soon as I opened up the box my eyes were immediately drawn to this set and it is my favourite for this month by far! I love the details and especially the see through feature of the diamond design. 



 These wraps are really cute and preppy. They totally remind me of that 90's movie 'Clueless' and the song Fancy by Iggy. When I opened these ones up I noticed that they REALLY smelt like wet nail polish, which I kinda like - weird huh?


 This one was my least favourite design for the month. This will probably be donated to one of my lovely friends - lol!

These Scratch boxes are definitely getting better with each month. When I first subbed I was mostly skipping each month but now every email preview I get keeps getting better and better but my wallet is not happy with me!

If you live in the US these nail boxes will set you back $30 a month with free shipping. International is an extra $8 shipping which equates to about $43.00AUD once you also include conversion fee from your bank. In the end it ends up being a little pricey but I love the variety in each box as well as the gifts that come with it. Next months gift is GREAT! Review coming super soon for that one :)

PS - some people have asked why my reviews on these come at the later end of the month/early in to the next month. The reason being is that shipping takes about two weeks for the boxes to reach me, then I take photos and do a manicure etc but I try and get it out asap!

 The next set of the LA Girl DIY Nail Kits to be reviewed is the 'Mod' set which contains four polishes, nail art brush, manicure stickers and instructions just as the 'Fabulous' kit does.

Again, these polishes do not have individual names.
I was hoping that this set came with a better brush but unfortunately it was just as bad. The ferrule also came apart from the handle and even after gluing it on it didn't stay on (le sad face).

 'Mod' comes with three creme polishes and one glitter. All the polishes are nicely pigmented and go on easily. None of them were streaky like the 'Fabulous' set. The glitter polish layered really nicely as it also had different sized glitter within it.

 It's great to have more creme finishes to add to my collection and I love the fact that each set comes with at least one set of glitter.

This is design I came up with when I saw the set - I love me some bling! Again, this set is definitely worth it for $4.00. If you have this set, let me know what you think and show me your nail art! x

Scratch Subscription Box - Feb 14

Feb14 Scratch Sub Box
February's Scratch box contains nail wraps designed by Hannah Lee of Hannah Rox It blog/vblog. Before this box I had never heard of her before but I adored her designs, especially the Enchanted Windows set.

This month we received three nail wraps, rhinestones, nail file and orange stick, as per the norm every month. The freebies this month was a wax pencil rhinestone picker, sharpener and a dark chocolate bar with cherries and almonds which tasted AWESOME!!!!

Sweet Spot is colourful dotted nail wrap design which totally reminds me of 'hundreds and thousand' sprinkles. Super cute, bright and punchy.

Hug Me, Kiss Me was really hard to take a picture of. They're a transparent/clear base nail wrap with red and pink heart features.I was planning on wearing these for Valentine's day but I was so snowed under with work that I didn't get the chance to do it. Can't wait to use these - I have something in mind for them. Keep an eye out for it on my instagram (@jolinaohair).

Enchanted Windows was what made me want to purchase the February box. The design and the colours are just PERFECT and totally reflect my style/personality.

The nail wraps were easy to apply and the majority of them fit well on my nails except the thumb nails as I have really big nail beds, which you can see in the images below, but the other fingers fit okay.

Scratch It is definitely one of my most favourite subscription boxes as they send you a preview for each month and if you don't like what you see you can skip it or gift it. Check them out at - you won't regret it! x
