Sapphire 8 in 1 Complete Curling Wand

Today I'm sharing my new hair care tool, the Irresistible Me Sapphire 8 in 1 Complete Curling Wand. This wand has become one of my favorite tools ever!!

Let me start with the fact that I am always borrowing my sisters' curling iron. I've shopped around from store to store searching through the endless brands and barrel sizes. I once forced myself to Ulta in search of a curling wand. I was forcing myself to buy a curling wand, so I would stop borrowing my sisters.
I wasn't sure which size, or what brand but a curling wand would suffice. Well I must have stood in one spot for a very long time with a confused look on my face, because every other minute a sales associate would check up on me. The problem I was having was that I wanted every size; I wanted the good stuff with all the cool features. You know all that hair care talk on the packages: Tourmaline, ions, ceramic, titanium, etc. I never really looked into any of these terms but they all just sound great.

I ended up with four different barrel sizes in my hand, and scared at what this would cost me. As I put each one of the curling wands down I reminded myself that I could always borrow my sisters' curler instead of reaching my credit limit. Let's get real, it's too expensive to have all the different kinds of curling wands...but is it really? That's why I'm so excited to make this post, because Irresistible Me has solved that problem by creating an 8 in 1 Curling Wand!! Yes 8 in 1. I could barely believe it myself. This wand has eight interchangeable barrels, which means you can use any barrel you'd like, whenever you want! How amazing is this. I personally haven't seen a curling wand with so many barrels to choose from. 

Below are a few pictures of how the curler comes when shipped. Note that the box is in perfect condition, because it was safely secured with bubble wrap. 

8 Barrel attachments include the following sizes: (left to right) 32MM, 19MM, 13MM, Pearl, 25MM, 18/9MM, 25/13MM, 13/25MM.

Ok so I absolutely love, love, love that it comes in this roll out carrier. Each barrel has its own pocket, as well as the wand, and the glove. I'm literally like a kid in a candy store! Every day I can't wait to use a different barrel, and start curling. 

The first time I used the Sapphire curling wand, it was very easy to use. Once you pick a barrel, line it up with the wand, and lock it in. Then plug it in and watch how fast it gets to the temperature you choose. I highly suggest you use the glove that comes with the wand, because the wand can get very hot. It's just like any hot tool, you need to be careful, and the glove has protected me from burns (which makes my fiance happy, I can't tell you how many times I've burned my fingers, arms, and ears...just don't ask). 

I went right to work, and choose the 19MM barrel, for the first four pictures below. I split my hair into three sections, because I have thick hair. I didn't take small portions of hair, because I didn't want to be curly Sue, so I took medium sized portions, and curled on a 410 temperature. It depends on what kind of hair type you have, so please be careful in choosing which temperature. Like I said before my hair is very thick, so I need a high temperature. Not to mention, my hair loses its curl quick, but luckily I don't have that problem with the Sapphire curling wand.

The next day, I got together with my little sister to show off my Irresistible Me Sapphire 8 in 1 Curling Wand!! I mean, how could I resist.

This time we used Kim Kardashian as inspiration and went with the 25MM barrel. We went with the 410 temperature, and started the curl lower towards the cheek bones. We were having fun doing my hair. Pictures below :)

My before the curls picture, and all that curling greatness thereafter.

Let's talk features shall we? The Sapphire curling wand barrels have Tourmaline, negative ions, and Far Infrared technology. It has a digital temperature display, dual voltage, fast heat up, a 360 degree cord, and is light weight. The max temperature this wand can reach is 230C/450F. 

So overall ladies, would I recommend this 8 in 1 curling wand? YES! Absolutely I would.  It's easy to use, it heats up fast, the curls last all day, and it doesn't burn your hair. I like that the curler doesn't have one of those clamps that leave that ugly mark on your hair. I also love that the Sapphire has a digital display for the temperature making it easy to pick the right temp.

Lastly, it wouldn't be a product review if I didn't mention a dislike. I only have one dislike, which is that this wand doesn't have a stand for resting. I do my hair in my bathroom, so my counter top is safe. When I tried to do my hair on my dresser, it was a no go. The end of the curler does have a cool tip where it's safe for fingers and probably resting, but it still scares me. That's it, not a deal breaker at all when you compare it to all the pros I've mentioned. 

That's it ladies. I love my Sapphire 8 in 1 curling Wand from Irresistible Me. If you are interested in purchasing one for yourself I would click HERE. You guys are in luck because the Sapphire curling wand is on sale right now for $159.20. That's a whole 20% savings on an amazing product.

A Post-it Wedding to Remember

Have you ever heard of a Post-it wedding before? This type of wedding exists in my favorite T.V. show Grey's Anatomy. We've been watching this show for years. Watching the characters evolve, fall in love, get married, become great surgeons, and over all be rock stars. I recently re-watched all 10 seasons on Netflix, and before you ask me what kind of time I have, I must tell you that I like to watch already watched movies and T.V shows as white noise in the background of anything that I am doing. After watching the infamous Post-it wedding episode, I thought...why not share the Post-it wedding of Meredith Grey and Derek Shepherd (Mc Dreamy). (SPOILER ALERT) Especially since watching this new season, Derek has been in Washington D.C. working with the President. We miss you Patrick Dempsey! We really miss you. 

Now here's a relationship that has stood the test of time! Derek and Meredith have been through almost everything together. They believe that their love means more than a big wedding. From the very first episode, you just knew that the McDreamy's were meant to be. A pair of surgeons having a one night stand, after meeting in a bar? To only find out later, this one night stand would not, could not be put to rest. That moment you saw and realized that Derek was now the boss of the beautiful one night standing intern. How awkward, how juicy, how marvelously entertaining. 

Their love is truly an inspiring one. Below is the Post-it wedding of Derek and Meredith. It proves that you can have a wedding that is different, low key, and special to you and your fiancĂ©. 

I feel like I watched the Post-it wedding episode at a time, I needed to watch it the most. I saw the episode years ago, but after re-watching it a few days ago, it meant something more to me this time around. I constantly get the question "When are you guys getting married?" My response is a nice one such as "We're looking into it." or "Soon.", etc. What I honestly feel like saying is a boat load, such as "If we knew when, we'd tell you!" and "I'm putting my education first, which means the wedding could wait." and "I rather hear the wedding question, than the kids question. So we're putting off the wedding, to continue to live in Peter Pan status." Up to Neverland...Away we go!! (LOL) :D

What I loved about the Post-it wedding, is that it was something special to the McDreamy's. My fiancĂ© and I go back and forth all the time. Whether we want to have a big wedding, a middle sized wedding with family and close friends, or if we just want to do a secluded wedding by ourselves. The Post-it wedding reminded me that it's about celebrating our union, and love for one another. So CHEERS to Derek and Meredith and their beautiful Post-it wedding! My hats off to you! I hope you enjoyed the lovely I do's of Derek and Meredith Shepherd. When in doubt, refer back to simplicity. Everything in moderation.
