Attending A Fashion Blogger Event

by , in
When you’re a blogger, there may well be times you might get invited to a blogger event. What a compliment! Whether it’s a big event or something a little more casual, these types of meet ups are a great idea to get people talking both to you and about you (in a good way, of course!) Big brands are always using these kind of events to promote their own stuff, and not only is it a nice way for them to get recognition, but also you, too! You’ll probably walk away with some free stuff as well, so it’s a win-win situation. Overall – good luck and have fun!
Prepare Before You Go
Let your followers know before you’re going that you’ll be at the event. Use the appropriate hashtag for the day to make friends, because it’ll help break the ice when it comes to actually getting there. Remember, everyone else will be as nervous as you are, but the intention is for you to enjoy yourself! So just be who you are and let your personality shine.
Smile & Have Style
Put a smile on your face and show you’re confident! You were ultimately chosen to attend because of your stand-out presence online, so just make sure it translates easily to real life. You can easily fake it, too, by following some tips. Also, as it’s a fashion event, you’ll want to carefully plan your outfit ahead of time. To be honest, providing you dress the way you want to come across, there’s no need to panic about things like money, or labels. Dress in a way that makes you feel best about yourself and everyone else should love you, too. If not – oh well, what do they know?!
Network, Network, Network!
Networking is so important, whether with your fellow bloggers (who’ll be important for your blogging future) or with the PRs that will probably be there. Introducing yourself with some cute business cards, or even some branded USB drives with more about you will like these will go a long way in getting you remembered for future events and opportunities.
Write Up About The Event

The reason you will have been invited would be to give a full, honest overview of what happened and what you did. This will drive traffic from other attendees, and it’ll be a time to showcase your talents, whether it’s writing or photography. Writing your piece promptly will show that you’re professional, reliable and sure to be used again!

For all the wool lovers out there..

by , in
Hi beautifuls,

Because it's so cold and rainy outside , I want to buy some nice sweaters so I've searched until I found this site. I really found a lot of sweaters and cardigans for women and men that look great! 
"Whether it's a cashmere and merino blend, silk and cotton blend, cotton and cashmere blend, lambswool or British wool, we have the cardigans women want. Full length or cropped, our womens cardigans come in a variety of styles including v-neck and crew neck. For a look that is warm, comfortable and versatile, every woman should have a cardigan as a staple piece in her wardrobe. With a wide range of colours available including rich autumn hues and light pastels, these knitwear pieces will keep you warm through winter, covered in spring and fashionable throughout " - This convinced me, they have super quality and good price , even some special offers. 
Here are some of my favourites :


This one is perfect for Christmas, isn't it?




My brother will love this one, he was looking for a nice red sweater for the Christmas Eve..

Holidays On A Budget

by , in
It seems like a pretty weird time of year to be talking about going on holiday, but so many of us do it throughout the colder months! Whether we want to escape to some sunshine, or even a wintery wonderland far more wondrous than our own, it really could be the perfect time. Of course, with so many Brits struggling even to afford the costs of holidays at the moment, but wanting to take them more than anything else, it’s also a good time to get booking for the months ahead. Like with most industries, just after Christmas and New Year will be a great time to book things, because there may well be some lovely January Sales…
Use Comparison Sites
Don’t just rely on the travel agent to sort you out – it’s 2014, after all! Some of the best deals can be found using sites like Kayak, or similar. You can create your own unique and bespoke package to suit all budgets and needs, and you’re free to do it at your own leisure.
Read Reviews!
Don’t just expect that the place you’ve booked is going to look exactly as it does on the brochure – remember, in a lot of cases they’ll present it a certain way in order to make sales! Don’t get swept up in parting with your money if it’s going to turn into a massive waste of your investment. Trip Advisor is brilliant, because you can access candid images and frank summaries which seek to prove what it’s REALLY like.
Don’t Just Fly
Flying can be a really expensive way to get somewhere, depending on where you’re going. Of course, there are some fantastic deals, but it’s not always a necessity. If you can car share with a group of you, driving around Europe is a cheap option, especially with the recent dip in petrol prices. You could also consider services like Megabus; for larger groups charter your own bus from International Coaches!
Consider Self Catering

Eating the local cuisine is brilliant when abroad, but it can soon add up if you’re eating all your meals in restaurants! Why not consider eating out for just one meal a day instead, and make lunch in your hotel or apartment? If that sounds like hell while away, why not look into all-inclusive options?

Tips For A New You In The New Year

by , in
So many of us set resolutions at the start of every new year, each time determined that this is the one where we’ll make all the changes we’ve been wanting to make for a long time. Each year, many of us fail miserably and end up feeling worse than we ever did before. For 2015, why not start smaller? Make a few changes to help yourself feel better overall, and the rest should follow naturally!
Look After Your Body
Instead of focusing on losing weight, dropping a dress size and so on, what not just focus on getting to a point where you’re happy and comfortable with yourself this year? Sometimes all it takes is making time to treat it right! Getting in a bit of exercise, eating whatever you want (but in moderation) and generally listening to your body and its need to rest might be all it takes. When you’re feeling run down, massages can really help. According to this article, they can have many health benefits – so why not vow to treat yourself every so often this year?!
Focus On Your Mental Health
Going into the New Year, do you really want your mind to suffer? So many of us neglect stress and other symptoms which are telling us that things just really aren’t okay. There are some basic first steps to ensuring that you’re looking after yourself in this area. First of all, make sure you’re not burning yourself out. Secondly, consider getting rid of negative drains on your life. Thirdly – focus on your dreams, your goals, and your aspirations. If this includes your professional development, then so be it – but remember to get that work/life balance. All employees can now apply for flexible working, so if this would suit you, maybe it’s time for a chat.
Make The World A Better Place
It might be a bit cheesy, but we could all do with being a little kinder to our fellow human beings. Even if you already do a lot for others, there are loads of ways you can pledge to do just a little more this year. Why not look at the Random Acts Of Kindness site, or perhaps your local Volunteer Opportunities site for more ways to make a difference? It’s not shameful to say that it’ll probably make you feel better, too!

Interesting Ways to Re-use Dead Flower

by , in

Flowers may look beautiful whilst they’re alive, but it’s a sad fact that they will eventually pass on to the big florist in the sky. However, just because your flowers have died, that doesn’t mean they don’t have their uses.
Here are some interesting ways you can re-use your flowers even after they’ve died…

Make potpourri
Making potpourri is probably one of the most obvious things to do with your dead flowers, but it’s also one of the most popular and most effective. Flowers smell great when they’re alive but they can still smell fantastic even after they’ve died and can make a lovely smelling air freshener for your living room, bedroom or bathroom. Potpourri is pretty easy to make – this article nicely explains how to do it.

Frame them
Framing dead flowers is a really interesting way of re-using them and can look fantastic if framed properly. Dry them out first and then either frame just the petals or you can do the whole flower; do it against a contrasting colour background (or white always works well) to really make them stand out. They look fantastic in pretty much any room of the house.

Jar the petals with a candle
Take the petals off the flower and place them in a glass jar along with a candle. When the candle is light, the petals will be beautifully illuminated. However, if the petals are dried out, remember to use an electric candle as otherwise there is a potential fire risk. This is becoming quite a popular way to give flowers at a funeral as the light in the candle is very symbolic, or can be done to regular funeral flowers once they die. For example the flowers from these wreaths from Flowers Same Day would look great even once they’ve died if put in a jar with a candle.

Put rose petals in tea or cakes
Rose petals are actually very flavoursome and can add a lovely scent and flavour to both tea and some cakes. You will need to wash the petals first, but putting a couple in a cup of hot water is a real treat.

Make cleaning products
If you want to make your own cleaning products then adding flower petals to them can give them a lovely scent. For example, you can make surface cleaner by blending a quarter cup of flower petals with one cup of baking soda and a tablespoon of salt. Experiment with different flowers’ petals for different results. Good Housekeeping has more info on making your own cleaning products.

Use them for compost or fertiliser
Out in the ‘wild’, dead flowers and plants are one of the main forms of nutrients for other flowers and plants and so you can help do your bit for the foliage food chain by using your dead flowers as compost or fertiliser to help other plants to grow. Simply place them around the base of other plants and as they decay they will feed the surrounding earth.
