How To: Start 2021 Off Right

Hello queens & kings, happy 2021! After a year tougher than any other I’ve experienced in my lifetime, we finally made it. Whether you spent the New Year shacked up with a group of your closest friends or, if you’re like me, on the sofa with your favorite pair of heels (had them on for a whole hour, can you believe that?), a champagne flute topped off with Veuve, while watching Bridget Jones Diary – I hope your New Years was a good one, a happy one, and a safe one.

Seems like just my last post I was talking about my 2020 vision board – oh wait yeah that’s because I was and I was a major slacker on my blog this year. My apologies, sincerely. But, if you miss me please feel free to follow my fashion TikTok; we have fun over there.

Either way, it’s time to make a new vision board, and this is your friendly reminder. This year I’m doing it a little differently. For those who don’t know, I moved back to the east coast this year. Although I am very happy about the move – the actual moving part made me realize how much s t u f f I have accumulated over the years. Coming from the girl who prides herself on her minimalism, psh yeah right Phil, think again.

Anyways, saving you from my moving saga, I decided to take after the sabotage queens themselves @Emma, @Nitsan, @Sophie, and make my vision board via the web this year. Taking good ol’ Pinterest and Canva by storm.

A few Nespresso’s, some cuddles with Marco (the family Golden Doodle and my New Years kiss), and an overcrowded desktop later, my 2021 vision board is complete.

Take a look for yourself,

What do you think?

I’ll be waiting for yours over on Instagram.

Once again, happy new year to each and every one of you!

And finally, thank you for taking the time to read this post, I appreciate you.

Perfect Summer Hair w/ INH Hair Extensions

I don’t know if it’s because we’ve been quarantined and I haven’t seen the inside of a salon, but my hair situation has been all over the place. From box dye, to letting my roommate give me a trim, to growing a few inches, we’re definitely going through something. This is why, when my Insert Name Here remy human hair extensions arrived – I was beyond stoked

I have been obsessed with INH for over a year now – before even having tried the extensions. One of my favorite Youtubers at the time was always talking about this brand and looked amazing when she wore her extensions. I instantly followed their Instagram and followed along as they posted new wigs, extensions, and ponies. 

INH is a female founded (also vegan + cruelty free) hair company. They have so many options to choose from. These are the perfect alternative to sew in extensions (and a lot less $$). 

So when my INH package arrived at the door, I just about lost it. I received both the Brit pony and the 22″ U-Clip extensions

My first reaction was the packaging. Both of these pieces came in the cutest little purple zip up bags, individually wrapped, looking stunning and sleek. The detailing on this packaging was unreal – from a satin dust bag to store your extensions, to a sample hair piece you can test out before opening the main compartment (if you decide the color doesn’t match and want to exchange). I absolutely loved everything about this packaging.

The Brit Pony 

I chose to test out the Brit pony first, maybe because I was trying to channel my inner Ariana Grande as fast as I could. I had seen a few videos prior on how to apply this pony and it seemed fairly simple. This piece is long, 26 inches to be exact, flips out at the bottom, and has one hair piece attached at the top to wrap around the pony. I realized it would be nearly impossible for me to explain how I put it on, so naturally, I decided to record a TikTok. Watch below to see me test out the stunning Brit Pony for the first time. 

I love this pony, it is so sleek and elegant. I obviously already have pretty long hair but I will never turn down some extra volume and length. The Brit pony adds that extra glam that I would want if I am going to a fancy dinner, maybe a social distanced gathering, or anywhere that I want to really dress up and feel like a badass bitch – basically. 

22 Inch U-Clip Extensions 

Theeeese extensions, now, if you’re looking for some extra volume and length but you don’t have the time for the long process of putting in extensions – these are for you. The U-Clip allows you to clip in the extensions across your whole head, in one piece. They are so convenient they make it so easy to pop them on and look like effing rapunzel. Of course, if you want to style and curl them it could take you a bit more time because they’re long and luscious but that comes with all long hair. I have pin straight hair so I thought I would have to curl all the hair to have everything blend, but they ended up looking just as fire with me keeping my hair straight. In case my first Tiktok wasn’t enough for you, here’s another one on how I would style my U-Clip extensions Monday through Sunday.

Like I mentioned earlier, my hair is straight as a board and barely holds a curl. These remy human hair extensions allow me to live all my Negin Mirsalehi hair dreams. My next INH purchase will be the Shayla pony – she’s 26 inches, wavy, and a lot cooler than I am. Go check out Insert Name Here for yourself and see which piece calls out your name. Let me know in the comments what you pick up and if you’re tryna go to a fancy dinner so we can match in our hair extensions. 

Love y’all and love INH
