CHRISTMAS | Gift Shopping Made Easy, With Debenhams

Oasis Francine Parka Coat, Debenhams

Department stores are amazing. You can literally buy ANYTHING from them. 

(you can't buy everything from them, but you sure can get a lot of things)

From sofas... to kitchenware.. to lipsticks.. to clothes.. to luggage.. and to cameras, you can be sure that Debenhams has got your back. If you're anything like me, you haven't even thought about Christmas shopping AT all - to those people who completed their shopping in like August, this post isn't for you, unless, yano, you are preparing for Christmas TWENTY FLIPPING 17'

I always leave my shopping until the last minute, and I don't even know why I do it. It happens every single year, and each year I always say 'next year I will start earlier' but we all know how that story ends. The thing is, I'm not very good at deciding what to buy people, and it is becoming harder each and every year. I find that when it comes to buying someone a present... if they REALLY really want something, they WILL have purchased it themselves already.

LIFESTYLE | Look After Your Boobies

Looking after your boobies, with Breast Cancer Care

I love raising awareness. 

Last month, was all about Breast Cancer Awareness and my bae's at Boux Avenue set up a partnership with Breast Cancer Care, which was AMAZING of them. They donated £1 to BCC for every bra fitting during October! They also matched all donations given by customers. I was supposed to get this post up in October, to be in line with this, but I had a little think...

Awareness days, weeks, and months are brilliant. But I can't help but feel once it hits midnight of said date (in this case, 1st November) people are just a bit like, RIGHT THAT IS IT FOR THIS YEAR, CYA NEXT OCTOBER. That is something that I am not a fan of. For that reason, I wanted this post to go up this month instead, let's KEEP people talking about Breast Cancer.

BLOGGING | FORGET About The Page Views

Engagement VS VIews

I don't have a media kit. 

Having a media kit seems to be the 'in thing' at the moment, and bloggers almost feel like they are rubbish if they don't have one. I see the benefits of having one, I do, they just have never been for me. For those who aren't sure what a media kit is, it's like a nicely designed document that includes some of the brands you have worked with, alongside all of your blog stats, such as followers, views, users, etc. Treat it as a kind of blog CV. 

Engagement VS VIews

They sound pretty great huh?... and I bet you are all wondering why the flip' I don't have one. It's simple. My life is happier when I don't have all the numbers whizzing around my head.
