I’m baaaaaack (with fabulous hair)


So I took a bit of an unintended leave of absence from this place. I’ve had exams at university which were stressful enough but also some personal issues that have been playing on me as well. Finally my exams are over and I have some free time to come back to blogging, which I actually rather missed. And today I’m talking about something I’m obsessed with.

The Nume Titan 3 resulted from a lot of online retail therapy and it is probably my best buy. I managed to get a coupon code that gave me any styling set for $99 plus free shipping. The Titan 3 has a full price of $250 plus a billion shipping to New Zealand. I couldn’t say no!!!

Firstly, I was really impressed with my experience with Nume as a whole. My package got to my house in a week plus it came with an adapter so that I could use it straight away which I was not expecting. The website tells you very clearly that the product is dual voltage (meaning it can be used in New Zealand because we run at a different voltage to America) and the selection that they have is just awesome.

As for the curling wand itself … amazing. It comes with 3 detachable wands sized at 19mm, 25mm and 32mm and a glove to protect your wee fingers. It heats up super fast and evenly but the thing that is the most amazing about it is how soft and shiny the curls are! My hair looks so healthy and glossy and when I wake up the next day, not only is my hair still curled but it still looks healthy. I do not understand how it does it.

I think it is magic.

I use the 32mm barrel on a day-to-day basis to give me effortless waves that look like I literally woke up like that and it is so quick and easy. The 25mm gives me more of a curled look as opposed to the waves I get with the bigger barrel and I use the 19mm on my mum who has some of the curliest hair I’ve ever seen and I tame a few of the curls with the smallest barrel.

I would highly highly highly recommend this styling set, and I am keeping my eye out for some more discount codes to try some more products.

(btw if you’re a kiwi and want to try Nume, the code I used was NZSETNOW but you’ll have to be quick)

Thanks for reading and I’m glad to be back,
