How To Make Pinterest REALLY Work For Your Blog or Brand

How I Get Nearly One Million Unique Views on Pinterest A Month - And You Can Too!

I'm going to start by saying that this is what I have done to build Pinterest into a successful driver of traffic to my blog. Some of the things I've done and focused upon, are the opposites of what others have previously said and widely told others to focus on. But I can only tell you guys what has worked for me - and how to apply that to your blog or brand.

What's In My Bag - The Beach Bag Edit

I'm currently on a major countdown to my summer holiday and I can't flipping wait. I need this holiday as physically and mentally I need a rest. A breather and time to just dial down is exactly what the Doctor ordered. So a little while ago I booked us a week in the sun, and now it's only a week away, which has come round so quick! I've got to be honest, I've never looked forward to some time off more!

What £250 Looks Like From Sephora - And Why It's No Longer Worth Shopping With Them From The UK

When it comes to make up hauls, there's the good and the excellent. Then there's the perceived make up Mecca, Sephora. Ask any make up addict and it's the dream. Any make up junkie who steps foot in a country that homes a Sephora store will hot-foot it there faster than you can say 'haul' and swiftly pick up a collection of pre-planned purchases. Because when it comes to make up shopping, Sephora is the one to beat - right? I've been one of those girls many, many times. And in the absence of many physical visits, I'm prone to making the odd (usually twice a year) bonanza haul online. I look forward to these times and spend months deciding what I'm going to order.

How I'm Getting More Body Confident With Upbra

Today I'm going to blog about something that you'll have never seen me talk about here before. I'm an open book when it comes to pretty much everything, and I've blogged about even some of the hardest topics in my life. But one thing I've never written about is something that has always been a big issue for me and given me a lot of body hang-ups: my breasts. Or should I honestly say, my lack of them.

Eight Charlotte Tilbury Summer Essentials

Charlote Tilbury will forever be one of the brands with the highest of reputations. With such a strong brand based on timeless beauty, it's been created to elude to all things glamourous - but only in the very most classy way. It's top level. It's excellence embodied and it's just pure luxury. Within the luxury comes a make up line that's forever extending with amazing goodies and a skincare collection that's already established some cult status products. (Magic Cream, I'm looking at you.) And while not everyone can afford a big splurge on multiple purchases, the Charlotte Tilbury reputation means even if you can't buy it regularly, you still aspire to. And you'll likely treat yourself once in a while, walking away from the counter with excitement and deep satisfaction. (Not just me, right?!)

Five Reasons To Try A Unisex Fragrance

When it comes to fragrances I think I have a very specific taste - as do most people. I know what I like and what I don't, and I never smell something once and change my mind. I know from the fist time I smell something, whether it's for me or not. Love at first sight kinda thing, in the scent sense obviously. I've learned a lot about fragrance since I started blogging - base notes, mid notes etc. And I've come to know what to look for in a new perfume.

My Journey To Straight Teeth - The Half Way Point

As you guys will know, a few months back I started my teeth straightening treatment with Your Smile Direct. If you missed all the videos and chats I did about this, let me just quickly fill you in - I have always hated my teeth. In fact, hate isn't the right word...I've always been ashamed of them. And I honestly think that is worse. You'll never see me smile in photo's with my teeth showing - ever. And I have always been painfully embarrassed of them. I think I should have had a brace back when I was a young girl, but for whatever reason, it never happened. As a result my teeth are crooked on the top and bottom and my biggest problem was my 'fangs.' (the side ones that hang down) but mine are also protruding and I just hate them so much. They've caused me a lot of insecurity growing up. And if you have any type of body hang-up, you'll know how truly rubbish that feels.
