Luxy Hair Extensions

So I've been wanting hair extensions for, like, ever. Literally! Every time I hype myself up to buy them I spend a day researching different ones, find a company I like, research it a bit more, look at the different colours aaaand... it stops there. It's like I have this fear of committing to one shade in case I end up buying the wrong one and wasted all that money? Yes, I know most of them you can return as long as you didn't open them, but really, who wants to go through all that. It's just so much better when you get online purchases perfect from the start.

Today I had another one of those days. BUT. I actually ended up purchasing a set :) I settled on a band called Luxy Hair owned by two sister and which sell 20" 100% Remi Human Hair in weights of 120g and 160g.

The two Sisters
It took me a while to figure out what the weights meant? But basically it's no change in the hair/quality/length etc, the only difference is the quantity. So 160g had 10 pieces and 120g had 9. They recommended the 120g for finer/normal hair and the heavier one for thicker etc. I got the 120g because my hair is really thin and I even doubt I'll be putting all 9 pieces in?! Hope I made the right choice.

I had SUCH a hard time choosing the colour. Spent the whole day again just trying to research and decide. Ended up settling on the "#18 Dirty Blonde" and even though I'm tryin gto grow my hair out to my natural colour, which is darker than this one, they always say it's easier to darken lighter extensions than lighter darker ones. Check out the sort of colour match below.
Shipping is free btw, big plus, and it'll take abt 2 weeks until I get them (sent them over to my Malaysian address since I'll be going back home end of the month). Once I get them I'll do a full review and some pictures of how they look etc. I've never had extensions before so will practice putting them in a couple times first :P.

Do any of you use extensions or tried these before? Any tips on easy application or hiding the clips well? xxx


I thought I'd post some pictures of me wearing my Luxys:

Got my Nudes

I posted a picture a couple days ago of a pair of nude heels that I really wanted. Well I bought a pair yesterday and they are nearly exactly the same. Only cost me AUD$40 (they were on sale from $50). Tried taking some pictures of them but the lighting is really bad - without the flash they don't look that nude and with the flash they nearly look white. Click here if you wanna see how they look like properly from the website. If you live in Sydney I got them from the Shoebox store in the shopping centre above Paddy's Markets in Haymarket. I might get the sole on the heel changed to a black one (that little "stopper" on the heel part that you see in the pics in brown?) I can get it done reeeeally cheap so might do that for more of a contrast. What you think of the shoes? :)

I am soooo bummed right now. I ordered the MAC Studio Fix powder foundation in NW25 and the colour is poo! Looks waaay too orange and dark. Should have gone with the NW20 I think. Money wasted once again. :(

Missing the Blonde

I saw this picture and really started missing my blonde hair. I started dying my hair mayyyybe from year 9 or so ever since about last year. Now trying to go for the more "natural" look of growing out my own hair colour. 

Love blonde hair paired with black or dark eye make up and nude or light pink lips. Determined not to give in though and successfully grow out my hair.
