Ok so the shock of January ending has almost ended but I did not want to forget it so quickly. I wanted to say another huge thank you to the amazing sponsors that have graced this blog for the month of January 2015. When I started blogging over 18 months ago I did not think I would have so many opportunities that I have had so far. I definitely wanted to one day be able to get an email from a PR or company that they wanted to work with me and that happening has been a dream come true. When 2014 was ending I decided to always take time to thank the sponsors for the opportunities they have presented me, when I shared part one of Thank you 2014 Sponsors I did not realise what an impact that would have on my blogs and to make sure I did not neglect the other sponsors I shared part 2 of Thank you 2014 sponsors and now I am thinking every month for the next 12 months I want to thank the sponsors that feature in each month.
So without further adieu here are the January 2015 sponsors.
Weddingshe – This is an online wedding dress shopping site which has incredible dresses at such incredible prices. I was fortunate enough to be contacted by this site to review them and share with my readers. Most you my regular readers know my brother is getting married this year and I am dress shopping, so Weddingshe was a welcome addition to the many sites I am checking out.
Prombee– This is another amazing online store which sales wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses as well as Men’s wedding clothes. I enjoyed cruising there website and picking out amazing dresses which I am still hoping someone will get for me. I do not have to wear it for my brother’s wedding I just want to own it big time. When a chance was offered to review their site again I couldn’t say no at that time I hadn’t even made up my mind about what colour I was going to wear to my brother’s wedding, all I knew was it can not be purple as that’s for the bridesmaids.

George Home & Garden (Part of Asda – Wal-Mart) – Over a week now I was contacted by a PR company (dream came true) who wanted me to work with their client. I didn’t know who the client was but wanted to hear more out of curiosity, when they told me it was George (all time favourite store) and they had £250 budget just for me I knew I had struck gold. Firstly couldn’t believe it and when I did I quickly rang my mother and sister and SIL and brother (you get the picture), we quickly decided what we wanted and the order was sent and less than 3 days we had all we requested. Since I have loved George since moving to the UK over 10 years ago now doing a review for them was a dream come true.
Firmoo – If you follow me on Instagram you will know how excited I was when I got my glasses from Firmoo. I was contacted over a week ago to review their glasses and the service they offer, I can not honestly fault them. There service is incredible, I got my glasses less than 5 days after I ordered and ordering was so easy to do since you can upload your photo on line and see what you will look like once you get the photos. They have an amazing collection, so many to choose from and there so affordable. At the moment they have asked me if my fellow bloggers would love to review there glasses as well and I have set up a google sheet to send to them so if you want to work with them complete this FORM and they will contact you if they like you. **Please note they choose who to work with not me, so if not contact please don’t come screaming at me**
Same Apparel – Last year December I was checking out the lands of bloggers required website when I found a company was looking to work with bloggers to review their faux fur winter coat. Since winter had been making itself known in the UK and I was looking for a coat I knew I had to apply to review this coat. Since I am not a full fashion blogger and hardly got a fashion sense I did not think I would get picked so when they e-mailed to say they would love to work with me I was double shocked but happy as well. I was never much of a fur person and I mostly loved it in small doses but this coat I can honestly say has changed my outlook of fur, I love it and rock it most days to work or just out and about the town.
Magnitone Lucid – A couple weeks back I was contacted by magnitone to try out & review their Lucid limited edition soniclear and compare against my soniclear cleanse system. I will be honest I do love both of them but the Magnitone worn in size and smoothness on the skin but lost in lack of spare brush and charging time. I am currently using the magnitone because I have seen quicker results and change in my face than with the soniclear but in the end they work the same and effective the same way.
Markwin’s #Flashmob – I hadn’t heard of #Flashmob until I was contacted via Brandbackers to review any product from their line. What I had chosen originally had run out so the 2nd choice the eyeliners was sent instead and honestly I am not disappointed. I love the pop of colour they give my eyes when I wear them and just so lovely I can not fault them.
Ozeri – I first became aware of activity trackers and become an owner of one last year when I went to a blogger event in London, the #curryschristmaswalk. We were gifted the withings pulse ox activity and so far have loved every minute of it. When Ozeri contacted me to review their Digital Pedometer I knew I had to try it out as well. I love it because its bigger, displays data quickly and stores 30 days worth of data the only down side I found was not having an online system to store the day on so you can not compare month to month improvements.
Refresh Skin Therapy – Last year I got introduced to so many products, some I do not think I would have known about if it wasn’t for the blogging world. I was never much into skin care routine but now I even developed a ‘winter routine‘ but make matters more interesting I am even going all natural on the products I used on my face. I had no idea how many face products we use that have harsh chemicals but have been fortunate enough to be introduced to natural products like Oz naturals and now Refresh skin therapy. They have some amazing products which I have tested and reviewed 2 and exploring more. I love how soothing and smooth they are on the skin, my skin is radiant and feels younger.
ToxicFox – Valentines day is around the corner and for those that celebrate it and give gifts I have just the thing for you. I was introduced to toxicfox by another blogger and was happy when they sent me a few items from the cheesy & fun range to review. Though I am more of a personalised gifts kind of person I was happy to get these and I can not wait to use one of them this weekend (check the review to see which one). The lovely people at Toxicfox are offering A July Dreamer readers 10% off voucher code – TFLove. This will work until the 15th of Feb and works on all valentine’s day categories (apart from 3 For 2 as this is already an offer).
Thank you so much to all my sponsors, this blog is and always will be a personal one but I am blessed to be offered products which I never knew about, some which I did and happy to try. Thank you for helping this blog grow and hope to work with you again in the future.
