Review of Irresistible Me Diamond flat iron straightener

Diamond flat iron

A few weeks ago Irresistible Me asked me if I would like to review their Diamond flat iron straightener, and as my hair has a tendency to be a bit frizzy and I hate blow-drying it, I jumped at the chance.

First, a bit about Irresistible Me, this company provides a full range of 100% natural clip-in hair extensions, wigs, hair accessories and hair tools. They ship worldwide and offer free international shipping above $150. They also offer free unlimited exchanges and returns, which are free for US customers. (International customers will have to cover the shipping fees of their exchange or return.)

I was very impressed with both the delivery service and the quality of the product. Read on for my full review of the Diamond flat iron, more photos, before and after photos of my hair and for a great discount code off your first order.

One top three ways

Silk top – French Connection (no longer available: similar here 

Silk skirt 1 – Sud Express (out of stock)

Skirt 2 (maxi) – Forever 21 (similar here)

Skirt 3 (Floral)- Lipsy (out of stock, but check here in case it comes back into stock)

One top three ways

When I first saw this pale blue silk top across a crowded French Connection, it was love at first sight, and even better, it was 50% off. So really, it was inevitable it would end up in my wardrobe.

However, there’s nothing worse than having a favourite top and never the occasion to wear it, so a key test to apply to your sales purchases is the ‘versatility’ test. When it comes to fashion, I love switching the styling of an outfit to recreate a different look or wearing something a different way to change its appearance, so I gave myself the challenge of styling this top in three different ways, from casual holiday wear to dressing it up for an evening out.

Furthermore, styling a staple piece, such as this simple top, in numerous ways reduces your clothes’ cost per wear and that’s got to be good for your purse (and also the environment – in the spirit of recycling!)

Like a simple white tee, this top is so versatile that you can easily use it to transform an outfit from the office to a night out, simply by changing your accessories.

Orange and black OOTD

So, I have been busy shopping in the sales, where I found this orange lace skirt, which combines my love of lace with this beautiful burnt orange colour, which brightens up any wardrobe.

I decided to pair this skirt with a black silk top, black suede jacket and black accessories. I love the colour combination of orange and black but it is a tricky trend as there is a risk of looking like you’re going to a Halloween party or ‘trick and treating’ if you get it wrong!

How to wear a white tee

A plain white tee is an essential part of any closet. You can use it to dress down or dress up an outfit and you can wear it at any time of the day and any time of the year.

It is so versatile that you can easily use it to transform an outfit from the office to a night out, simply by changing your skirt and accessories and you should always remember it on holiday for a change from beach to sightseeing to night out.

Where to eat and drink in Los Angeles

Today’s post is all about where to eat and drink in Los Angeles.

I have been meaning to write this post for a couple of months now, as I was lucky enough to have a ‘local’ guide to the best places to eat and drink in Los Angeles on my most recent visit. However, as it is the 4th July today, it seems an appropriate date to write about places to eat and drink in the US.

Los Angeles’s restaurants and bars are as varied as its neighbourhoods and also spread out over a large area. In this guide to where to eat and drink in Los Angeles I have grouped the bars and eating places by area to make it easier to plan your day.

I am totally in love with these slightly distressed jeans from Zara. As an older blogger, I felt that ‘slightly’ distressed was a good starting point for this trend, and to smarten the look up a bit, I opted to pair them with a smart black jacket/coat and high heels!

Floral midi skirt by Wolf and Whistle*

If you remember a couple of weeks ago I did a post about a beautiful jacket from the British brand Wolf and Whistle, and I mentioned that I had also received a gorgeous floral midi skirt, so today I want to share this floral midi with you.

I love both the pattern and the quality of the material. The skirt is fully lined, has a beautiful ombre floral pattern and sits at a chic midi length.

I was absolutely delighted when  Wolf and Whistle contacted me to choose two items from their website for review*, the jacket (see here) and this floral midi skirt.
