She {hearts} IrresistibleMe Hair Extensions

IHAIR

irrmeFor those of you who follow me on Facebook or Instagram (@dreawood), you would have seen by now, my amazing clip in hair extensions by IrresistibleMe. I have been eyeing clip in extensions for some time now. Even when my hair was super long, I wanted some. They truly are just a great and easy way to liven up a hair style or lengthen up what you have or dont have. ;-) The beauty of them is that they are clip in. So easy in, easy out.

IrresistibleMe carries all 100% real hair. It isn’t the fake synthetic hair you can find at some beauty stores… that does not allow you to use heat on it… These extensions act and feel like real hair.

The Extensions I got are the Royal Remy in Royal Natural Black 200G. My natural hair color is almost totally jet black but has a hint of brown. So the “Natural Black” was perfect and matches my hair exactly. When I put these in you truly cannot tell they aren’t real and I have been nothing but impressed with them.

In order to show how these work, I filmed a video ::cringe:: … I DO NOT LIKE VIDEOS of myself. I am not a video person and I feel I am so bad at them… but filming a video putting these in, for me, just made sense. I wanted to show you all a newb putting in these extensions, to show you, even the “less than talented hair people” can use these. ;-)

Here goes…

I probably wear my extensions 3-4 times a week. I LOVE THEM… but because it is extremely hot, humid and rainy in Georgia… I do not wear them on days I know I will be outside sweating… or in the rain. I want these suckers to last ;-) – so I am trying to take care of them. I love to wear them to church… or on dates. One day I literally wore them all day long and they did not budge. If you are new to extensions, a warning… they do take some time to get use to. They are slightly heavy if you are not use to having long hair… and therefore it does take some time to adjust to that feeling.

They stay in great though and even with 4 boys constantly tugging on me, they stay put and look good all day.

Enjoying my #irresistiblemeextensions this am. I've had a fever the last two days and with that came horrible head aches. Extensions def do not team well with head colds  ... Woke up feeling better today tho so decided to play with the hair. Y'all it's soHeaded to #firstbaptistwoodstock with my dudes. :) wish my husband could come. #dudemom
Had some request for a front shot of the extensions. These btw are #irresistiblemeextensions - in dark brown. Perfect match to my natural hair. I am not one to typically fuss over hair to much but the current length of my hair is so unflattering to my facUsed three extensions to do the side pony tail which is very comfortable and easy to pull off. Used two, two clip wefts and one three clip one. #irresistiblemeextensions #clipinextensions
*from my instagram*

To those curious, why I wanted extensions. Maybe wondering why I don’t just grow out my hair. I donated 11 inches of hair last year to a cancer foundation… and while I enjoyed having a pixie cut, I get bored easily ;-) – so I am currently IN the process of growing out my hair. My hair is to my shoulders now and for me personally, I am not a fan of its length ON ME (its cute on others hah…). I don’t find it the most flattering for my face shape or body frame… so having extensions for me, are a fun and useful item to help me get pass the awkward “growing my hair out” phase. It to me is no different than someone going to a stylist for new hair color or new trims often. I don’t color my hair, so this is my way of “treating my head” to some fun hah… and its a very affordable one, seeing as these can last 1-2 years if well taken care of.

A few tips to leave you with… If you do purchase some:

1. Wash them when you get them!
- to wash use 1 tsp of shampoo (no thickening shampoos) to every 3 cups water. You want it pretty diluted. Then condition them well, rinse, hang dry. Or you can blow dry… just be sure to treat them with a heat spray. I hang mine dry on the clothing hangers that you clip pants too. Works great!! *HERE IS A VISUAL*

Now this is an odd sight :) / read that you should wash your extensions before you use them. Oops ;) so went ahead and washed them and hung them to dry. Looks off to have hair hanging around haha. This hair is naturally wavy. Kinda in love with it  #irres

2. Watch lots of videos on youtube on how to blend them. There are so many great youtubers with great tips and tricks to using these. When I used them to make my pony tail long, I didn’t have to use all of them. Made for a great lighter use of the hair… with still the illusion of long hair.

3. Have fun! :)

She {hearts} Sammy Dress

Many months ago I was introduced to a company called Sammy Dress. Some of you may have seen this company advertised on facebook. I know I have seen it there a few times. This website is packed full of fashion items for less. When I looked at the website I found myself stuck there for quiet some time. The variety of items offered was huge.

Screen Shot 2014-06-21 at 12.51.59 PM

pursesI loved all their tunic tops, summer dresses and fun accessories. A great selection of purses and clutches.

Their prices are probably some of the most affordable prices I have seen for online shops such as this.

This website does allow returns as well. The sizing charts they offer are pretty true to size… but if you do get an item that does not fit or you do not like, you can ship it back for exchange or refund. They just ask you cover shipping.

For fun I thought I would list out some favorite items I found on the site. Just click the links and it will open them up unto a new window.

- Loved this Newspaper inspired Tote. Would make a great over night bag!

- Bow Knot Head Band, would be fun for working out, or casual day with a bad hair day.

- Huge Make up Brush Set

- Another Brush Set (I love make up brushes, always nice to have back ups too, while other ones are being cleaned)

- Summer Dress – so cute!

- Casual Swoop Top – stripes. I love tops like this.

- A Purse organizer! Im so getting one of these!!

As you can see, lots to choose from. They often run lots of specials too. Items as high as 70% off.

So if you are in the market for some online shopping. Check out Sammy Dress. Stuck on bed rest? Kids sick? Got a niece to shop for or daughter, Sammy Dress is a great and fun place to start.

I am in baby mode right now.  We only have a little over two weeks before we welcome our little bundle, and I couldn’t be more excited about it.  I am even more excited now that I have the most amazing diaper bag to tote all the toddler and baby items I will need when out and about.  Ju-Ju-Be is an amazing bag company that specializes in diaper bags.  There are sizes, styles, and prints galore!  It is so nice to have great options when choosing a bag that will be used for such a special phase in every momma’s life.  They even have bags for daddy’s, too!

I have never had a “nice” diaper bag.  I just used what I had on hand and went with it.  Things got shoved into my make-shift diaper bag and it was never very convenient.  After experiencing my Ju-Ju-Be bag, I am now regretting not having invested in a quality diaper bag that makes taking a little one out so much easier.  I have been toting the Legacy ~ Be Prepared bag around for a couple weeks now.  It truly is a bag that has a place for everything, so I am never unprepared for any of the spills, needs, or mishaps that occur when you are a momma.

legacy be prepared collage

Not only does the Legacy tote have a roomy central compartment, but there are mini pockets and compartments inside of it.  There are pockets on each side of the bag and two pockets on the ends which are perfect for bottles or sippy cups.  I also love that I can wear it snuggly under my arm, or use the larger strap and wear it cross-body.  The fabric is Teflon so drips and stains wipe away easily.  Oh, did I mention that it is easily big enough to suit a mommy with two kiddos in diapers?  Even cloth diapers?  It is a dream diaper bag- for sure!

{heart} It

I had such a hard time choosing a bag, because all the prints and styles are so amazing.  Make sure to check out Ju-Ju-Be if you are a momma, soon-to-be-momma, or need a great baby gift for someone you know!

She {hearts} Undercover Mama

undercover-mama-logo

Between my three kids, I’ve breastfed for 35 months (and counting…), so I’ve learned a thing or two about dressing for the job!  I’ve found that an essential piece of my wardrobe (in addition to a great nursing bra, of course) is the Undercover Mama!

This unique top hooks onto your favorite bra to create a nursing tank to layer under any shirt.  The advantage of this over a normal nursing tank is that it allows you the freedom to wear your favorite (supportive!) bra!  When it’s time to nurse, you can lift up your shirt without exposing your tummy.  The Undercover Mama has you covered!

I also like how the Undercover Mama fits perfectly (I wear a small) and is high enough in the back and the front.  The array of color choices is fantastic too (thirteen options)!

I highly recommend the Undercover Mama if you are breastfeeding or soon to be!

Sonnet James is a company that specializes in making dresses for the everyday mom. They are comfortable, stylish, and impeccably made- right here in the US!  You can dress them up for a church morning, or put on some tennis-shoes and go for a walk with the family.

Sonnet James was created by a momma with all those things in mind- style, comfort, and workmanship.

These dresses are designed to be rolled around in with your kids, worn while jumping on the trampoline, or for going to the park and flying a kite!  Live life… with your family… in the perfect Sonnet James dress!

Sonnet James was birthed by a mom of two boys, so you know these pieces were made to be worn, enjoyed, and to last!

I received the Stella dress to review.  I have already worn it several times- once to church, once to a meeting, and another time to a conference.  I love that it is a non-maternity dress that can be worn during pregnancy!  I feel so comfortable wearing it right now with my expanding baby bump, and I can’t wait to wear it without my baby bump!  The fabric hangs so nicely and the care of the garment is super simple- wash and let air dry.
