The best curling wand ever // Sapphire 8 in 1 Curler


I officially do not need another curling wand. I repeat: I do not need another curling wand. The Sapphire 8 in 1 Curler from Irresistible Me is everything. I still have not mastered the classic clamp curling iron (really, I need to practice) but these are so easy to use - since all you really need to do is wrap your hair evenly around the barrel.


The complete set. Each ceramic wand is tourmaline infused and interchangeable with the main piece, easily locking into place. Once you turn it on, you can choose your heat setting, up to 450C - pretty impressive. Most of all, I was impressed by the speed in which the curling wand heated up. The screen even shows the current temperature. Nifty.



Can you believe this bag carries EIGHT different curling wands? Let me unroll its glory.



There it is folks, there it is.



These are the two I decided to try out for today's review - since my old curling wand was the most different from these. The wand on the left creates a tight, winding curl whereas the wand on the right creates a casual wave. I can see myself using the right wand on a daily basis, and the wand on the left for special occasions.

Depending on your hair type, you can create many different curls with this all-in-one wand, and I will definitely try em' all. I'm also planning on getting a hair cut later in August, which will make things much easier and my hair will be able to hold a curl for longer.




Left: Pearl barrel, hair is wrapped tightly in a spiral.
Right: Large barrel, loose waves and curls.

With confidence, I give this product an A+. It may just be the best curling wand on the market. You can find it from Irresistible Me

Market // Forever 21 Romper, Levi's Denim Shirt, Clarks USA Juniper Sling Boots


I'm practically wearing pajamas. And that's okay by me! When rompers first made their way into stores years ago, I couldn't do it. The style was tight and structured, and nothing fit me right. Recently, the trend has leaned more toward baggy versions, which I can get on board with. Dressing these up are fairly easy. I have one in black, as seen in this post, which I could definitely wear on a night out.

I'm loving my new Clarks boots. Sometimes boots can create an awkward line on the leg and make your legs look short - but I think beige (or whatever your skin tone is) booties may just be the trick. The white heel is a really neat touch and the boots themselves are crafted from soft leather, which makes the shoes really comfortable, even on hot days.

Laurentia // Knit shorts, Anthropologie hat


I bet you didn't know that Manitoba has gorgeous and diverse landscapes. No, we don't have mountains, or ocean shores. But we have over 100,000 lakes. These shots are from my cabin a few weeks ago, on Lake Manitoba. It is a marshy area, abundant with fish flies, birds (lots of birds) and frogs. You can see flat across the lake and the sand is soft and white (well, not in this photo, this was a bay area). 

Adam's cabin is drastically different. Located on Lee River, you're more likely to see a black bear or an otter than a flock of pelicans, and docks line the water's edge beyond lush forest. 

We love our cabin life in this province.
