• March 2016 Sponsors 

    March 2016 Sponsors, thank you for working with me on A July Dreamer and offering so many opportunities that I did not think would be possible 3 years ago (this July) when I started blogging. I didn’t start blogging in hopes of getting sponsored or free things these have been added bonuses, I started as a way to pass the boredom and rant as well as share my loves. Looking back, I have achieved so much but I also know my success is not the same as the next person and I try not to compare.

    Thank you sponsors

    March 2016 Sponsors

    clutchHouse of Fraser – I worked with them last month so it was a welcome sight to see them wanting to work with me again via a PR. I put together two posts; How to clutch your outfit, a way to show you how you can dress clutch bags/purses and Leon’s Style showcasing some of the ways you can style your son/nephew’s outfits.


    Social Media: TwitterInstagram 

    march must havesProline Skates – I shared with you my March Must Haves list which included some skates, reason being last summer MOH too me staking (well can’t call it that since I wouldn’t move from the wall) and I thought this year I will be prepared and get my own so I can practice at the local ice rink (this hasn’t happened but it is being thought of 🙂 ).

    work dinner outfitVivienne Westwood Bags – When I put this outfit together, I had a work dinner and party to attend that find which I ended up not attending as I mixed my dates but I still loved putting this outfit together and this bag is just too gorgeous.

    Bolsover – I had previously worked with his company last year via PR and was happy to work with them again via the same PR. The challenge #meddysteadycook was a cooking challenge to cook a Mediterranean meal to be in with a chance to win a two night mini-cruise for two courtesy of P&O Ferries. It was a fun challenge but not one I am liking to win since my cooking is as good as my German 🙂 but it was nice to work with this company again.

    its a dogs lifePanasonic – I collaborated with Panasonic via PR to share with you a Dog’s life, a video on giving your furry friend a day off and letting the Panasonic smart home system protect your home. To join the competition, upload a photo or video of you and your ‘Very Important Pet’ VIP, sharing the love using the hashtag #MyVIP for a chance to win a two-night stay in a luxury hotel and other great prizes worth up to £2,000

    Social Media: Facebook, Twitter

    stripes in fashionButterfly Twists – I was contacted by the company to try out their Jade flats and share my honest opinion, the flats I am rocking up to this day. They have become my go to flats and wearing them to work and on my day out trips plus my getaways, they are just so comfortable plus foldable so they are very much-loved. I shared two ways that I styled these new must have flats HERE and HERE.

    writing a will

    Writing a Will: What you need to know – this post was one which came at the right time for many people, I will admit as a young lady this is not something I think about. When my parents were talking about writing a will and having life insurance it touched a nerve for me, I know it is something that must be done but it just makes me sad when they talk about when they won’t be around no more but as I said is it something that has to be done.

    These are the amazing sponsors that made my March 2016 sponsor’s post, I am forever grateful for working with me and hope to see you again on the blog.

    **I work directly with companies and via PR’s, which ever way you would like to collaborate with A July Dreamer, please check out my work with me page for my fees**

      Great post! Nice of you to say thanks to your sponsors and also share their lovely products! Blogging is a great way to share real life experiences and practical ways of using a product unlike TV commercials and magazine ads. I enjoy working with PR companies too..

      • April 1, 2016 / 11:40 pm

        Thanks so much Vidya and it’s nice to work with PR companies

      You’ve worked with some awesome Sponsors! It’s good to focus on the abundance you experience. Hubby and I did a will years ago and it’s nice to have piece of mind.

      • April 1, 2016 / 11:40 pm

        I really did work with some amazing sponsors

    10. April 1, 2016 / 4:32 pm

      These are some awesome opportunities! Oddly enough will writing has been a popular topic for my family and I. I feel kind of weird discussing and just recently accepted that I needed life insurance. I guess the next logical step would be looking into a will?

      • April 1, 2016 / 4:53 pm

        It’s a weird topic but one that needs to be discussed

      So many wonderful sponsors! I think it’s wonderful to do a thank you post, that I am sure goes a long way! Congrats on so many wonderful sponsors the month of March!

      • April 1, 2016 / 4:52 pm

        Thanks Jeanine, mama says to always give thanks

    12. April 1, 2016 / 3:40 pm

      It was the same for me. March was my 1 year anniversary and while I hoped to turn it into a business I didn’t expect to get all this free swag and be able to partner with some of my favorite companies and share them with the world. i love the work dinner and party outfit i don’t know if you watch Scandal but it makes me think of Olivia Pope.

      • April 1, 2016 / 4:52 pm

        Hahaha some one told me I created the Olivia Pope outfit lol and yes I do watch Scandal and love it. It’s amazing when you start to earn unexpectedly from the blog

      Good for you and kudos to the sponsors and PR firms that bring all of us bloggers some really wonderful opportunities. It’s always fun to try new products and share insights on things we enjoy. 🙂

      • April 1, 2016 / 7:22 am

        Thanks Elizabeth, it’s awesome working with these sponsors and PR companies

      • April 1, 2016 / 6:29 am

        The month flew by indeed

    17. April 1, 2016 / 4:39 am

      Great recommendations for March when it comes to outfits and accessories. I think WIlls are sensitive issues but it’s rather important to deal with it now than later.

      • April 1, 2016 / 6:29 am

        Absolutely they are so sensitive but the earlier they are done the better

    18. April 1, 2016 / 4:28 am

      It is always good to stop and thank you for the people who have helped you get where you are, sponsors included! These companies have very nice clothing! Loving the shoes from Butterfly Twists.

      • April 1, 2016 / 6:28 am

        Absolutely hence why I stop a minute and say my thanks

    19. April 1, 2016 / 2:29 am

      This is a nice gesture to give a bit of a shout-out to sponsors for your blog. What fun to read about your different sponsors!

    20. April 1, 2016 / 12:04 am

      Great post! It’s always interesting to see which brands other bloggers are working with. Seems like pretty much every brand is working with someone!

      • April 1, 2016 / 6:27 am

        Yep, it’s the new era brands are seeing the benefits of working with bloggers

    21. March 31, 2016 / 10:50 pm

      Were all of these posts paid posts by any chance? Do you mind me asking what PR/ Sponsorhship companies you work/collaborate with as I am looking to increase my earnings!

      • March 31, 2016 / 12:13 pm

        Yes they were, as mentioned they PR companies are those who’ve contacted me in the past and they vary. I can certainly send your email address to them if that will help.
