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
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!
