Irresistible Me Flat Iron

Hair Straightener: Irresistible Me

Today's post I'm sharing with you about how I curl my hair using a flat iron by Irresistible Me. I don't usually curl my hair everyday but if you want to keep the curls in longer it's best not to wash your hair for a couple of days. I can go as long as four to five days of curls without washing it and touch up using a dry shampoo and the flat iron. To curl your hair you would want to section each layer like the picture shown above. I like to section each layer starting from the bottom of my head to the top. This flat iron has a on/off power button and you can adjust the temperature up to 450 degrees. I like to keep mines at about 350 degrees. The Irresistible Me is designed to protect your hair and keep all natural hair oils and moisture in, which is a big deal for me because I try not to wash my hair too much and keeping the natural oils in so my hair can stay as healthy and shiny without damaging it. I will show you a step by step on how I get the perfect curls using the flat iron. 

Step 1: Start by spraying your hair with a heat protecting or any texturizing spray of your choice. (Here I'm using It's a 10 Miracle Leave-in spray)

Step 2: Start sectioning from the bottom of your head as shown below and take a bout 1-2 inches section of your hair and clamp the iron twisting as you go. (Since my hair is long I start as close to the roots and work my way down twisting the iron and hold for about 10 seconds to prevent from getting kinks) 

Step 3: Continue repeating step 2 until you curled your entire head.

Step 4: Once your hair is all curled use your fingers to run through your entire hair and spray in some texturizing spray. (You can also use a teasing comb to add more volume)

Step 5: Finishing touch if needed and spray more texturizing spray than you're all done! :)

Happy Thursday! Today, I am officially 25 weeks! I can't believe just weeks now until baby boy gets here and I have yet done any clothes shopping for boys. If any of you momma boys have favorite brands/store for boys I'm all ears. So I bought this beach coverup awhile ago in NV dreaming of going to the beach or pool and here I am finally was able to lay out in the sun. This was from a few days ago and I was super excited to be able to lay out and soaking up all the sun I can get before baby gets here. My goal this summer is try to make it to the beach/pool more. Do you have any plans for the summer?

Plum Maxi

Dress: Mint Julep Boutique | Heels: Steve Madden | Lips: Posie K by Kylie

 One of my favorite piece to wear especially now that I am in the second trimester are dresses! I love this loose and pleated dress (not maternity) from the Mint Julep. I adore the color and the fit is just perfect for my big belly. You can wear this as a date night look and add a light sweater with sandals. The color of this dress gives it a pop so that you don't need to add too much accessories to look feminine or glam up. I hope you love this look!

Happy Monday! I hope you all enjoyed your Mother's Day yesterday whether you're a mother or spending time with your mom. I wore this look yesterday and I love this maternity dress from Asos especially the ruffled details on the sleeves and bottom of the dress. I had such a wonderful time yesterday just spending it with my little (and growing) family. Today my husband and I celebrate our three years anniversary together. I am so thankful and grateful for a caring and loving husband. I hope you have a great start to your week!
