Accessorize Love Lily Review

Today is a little different from what I had originally planned! Today is National Chocolate Cupcake Day meaning this post should have been a recipe for youu but unfortunately, I just haven’t had the time to bake some cakes. Meaning a different post on the agenda, today I am going to share with you Love Lily, a fragrance from Accessorize. When I received the email asking me if I wanted to review Love Lily, I jumped at the opportunity because I adore perfumes!

I only ever thought Accessorize sold bags and jewellery as their name implies, so I was actually quite surprised when I heard about Love Lily but at the same time, it made me quite excited to try the fragrance. Accessorize describes Love Lily on their website as sweet and vibrant, which I definitely agree with! This is very much a Spring/Summer fragrance, this may be the wrong time to have this type of fragrance as it doesn’t reflect this season.

xtava Pro-Satin Infrared Straightener Review

I find that a lot of people feel my hair is straight, whereas myself I find it to be very fluffy! I don’t like not blow drying my hair, as it’s quite long so for it to naturally dry, it seems to take forever. The day after my hair is very fluffy and this is what I hate about my hair! But this is where hair straightener comes in, I don’t always straighten my hair as I don’t seem to have the time. I’ve been using the same Babyliss straighteners since I was in school, so it was time to invest in a new pair. I recently received the xtava Pro-Satin Infrared Straightener to review here on An Ocean Glimmer.

I was a little unsure at first as I’ve never heard of the brand before, so I didn’t know if they would be any good! I’m not sure about you but I always buy from brands that I know I can trust, as I said my previous hair straighteners were Babyliss and my hairdryer is from TRESemme. I looked up the brand after putting my order through and it seems like a lot of bloggers are speaking very good things about xtava! Which meant I was looking forward to getting my hairs on my xtava straighteners.

The Birdhouse Calligraphy

Etsy is one of those websites that you can find anything created by a very talented person, be it stickers for your journals, cute illustrations or even notebooks and other stationery. I adore shopping around all these different stores, they even make for some great presents for your loved ones. Recently I came across the Birdhouse Calligraphy after Louise was on the search for bloggers who adored handmade items. I always love promoting new stores so I jumped at the chance to collaborate with Louise.

After checking out her Etsy store, I fell in love with her work, it’s all so beautiful and even better than that, it’s all handmade by Louise! None of her work is digitalised, it is all handmade when she receives the order, which in my eyes is amazing! You’ll always know that you are receiving something that has been hand created by her own hands. Calligraphy is something that I’ve always loved! I would love to know how to do it and do it well at that, so I am even more impressed by what she does.

An Introduction To: Blogger Book Nook

I have some very exciting news to share with you, I am now apart of a community called Blogger Book Nook! I thought I would introduce you to this community today as I’ve fallen in love with it and there are some great bloggers involved. Growing up reading was something I always struggled with, my English skills were very poor. Until one of my teachers actually helped me and recommended some authors to improve my reading skills.

This is where my love for Jacqueline Wilson started and I still enjoy reading her books. Now I am pretty much addicted to reading! Whether it be DC Comics or Marvel and supernatural thrillers, I love to be sucked into a different universe. Recently though I’ve had to stop reading as much as I used to, thanks to the time I didn’t have during university. With me finishing my third year in May, I’ve now had a lot more time to actually read, as you know from my monthly book reviews with Neverland Blog Tours.

Now enough chit chat, shall we get started?

Do you hate your unwanted hair? Want an easier removal tool without spending hours? Well, I think I have found something! The HOLLYWOOD BROWZER is the perfect beauty tool to get rid of unwanted hair.

So I’ve been looking for something to help remove my hair, this is where I came across HOLLYWOOD BROWZER. I’ve been using the tool for just under two weeks now and I can say that I am in love with it! I didn’t think I could find a tool that could easily remove my hair. It’s just soo quick to use, of course, once you have worked out how to correctly use it.

Inzpire.me to Connect with Brands

It’s one of those stereotypical things, you become a blogger, you receive products from brands in return for an honest review on your blog, but in reality, it’s not that easy. You can either approach brands yourself, find opportunities on Twitter or join programs like Inzpire.me. I recently signed up to Inzpire.me after coming across the program on Twitter as I’ve reached a point with my blog where I feel like I can sell myself to brands and be successful.

Today I wanted to introduce you to Inzpire.me and how it can help you, as an influencer, collaborate with brands.

Black Marble Pen Duo from Creoly

If you know me well, you will know just how much of a fan I am of stationery! I always seem to be picking up new items, I just can not help myself. So when Creoly asked me if I wanted to collaborate with them, I jumped at the opportunity. I am now a part of their “Early Bird” Review Club, I will be receiving some of their favourite products to review here on An Ocean Glimmer. I am very excited about this collaboration and I can not wait to see where we go together.

Before we go into my first product I received, let me tell you a little bit about the company.
