• July 2016 Sponsors

    July 2016 sponsors, is a roundup post of all the wonderful sponsors I worked with throughout the month of July. I never take for granted all the people, PR companies and Brands that reach out to me to collaborate together and promote eath other brand’s in the long run.

    I have been blogging for just over 3 years now, I have said this many a time on the blog. When I started blogging, it was a form of release for me after finishing university and leaving home. It can be daunting leaving away from home when all you’ve known your entire life is home. I have been fortunate that something I started as a hobby (still is) helps to generate some revenue for me.

    So as not to take the wonderful sponsors for granted, I would like to extend my thanks to my sponsors. Without further adieu, here are the July 2016 sponsors.

    Roundup of July 2016 Sponsors

    Sponsors come in all shapes and sizes, for me it is either content placement or writing content myself. I have split the sponsors in Content Placement or Writing Content.

    Content Placement – I work with a number of writers so I am always happy to receive content they write for a small fee. Check out my fees HERE.

    Dental Implants & Self-Esteem – Though not all of us require dental implants to improve our smiles and self-esteem, I think it was important to share this content with my readers because (1) there could be one who needs it and (2) it’s good knowing there are options available out there should the need ever arise.

    Cutting down on your heating – As someone who is renting an apartment and paying for my own bills, I am always looking for cheap ways to cut down of heating in my home as well as other bills. I was happy to share this content with my readers especially those in colder climates or just the UK where it feels like winter most of the year.

    Garden Shed – As soon as I read this content I knew I had to share with my readers. I don’t have a garden shed but my parents do. Currently the shed is a home for all the garbage we can’t decide what to do with. It would be nice to be able to convert it into a work shop of sorts for dad. The fascinating ideas shared for a beautiful garden shed received a great response from my readers.

    Venture Photography – There is no blogger out there who does not care for their blog pictures. Whether we thinking of them in a professional sense or just good quality images, we all think about photography. For parents out there, I was happy to share this post on professional Baby Photography services because well who doesn’t love having a couple of professional pictures of their kids. Whether you go out and hire someone or you do them yourself, it’s nice to have pictures around your home.

    Writing Content

    Though writing content for my blog is never an issue, it is still nice to have sponsored content. It is nice to be paid or provided with products to write about. The beauty about writing the sponsored content is you have 100% control of it.

    Fishpools – Though I was not familiar with the company, the request to write content and include them was something that I was happy to do because (1) I was already writing my living room wishlist, (2) gave me an idea of what other companies/brands I should be looking at for my wishlist. And (3) it was nice to make some cash from something I love doing and was going to do anyway.

    birthday presents

    House of Fraser – I have said this a number of times, I am honoured every time I am asked to work with House of Fraser. This is one of those brands that just never falls out of favour. I given store credit, with the credit I picked three lovely maxi dresses that are just sublime. As a part-time Fashion blogger, I have my eye on a lot of items and it is always a blessing when you get what you have your eye on.

    Family Favourite

    George Asda – Last year I was invited by a PR company to work with George Asda (part of the Wal-Mart Group) and given Β£250 to chose anything from the new home range. You can imagine my delight because, George Asda was (still is) one of our favourite family stores.

    Every weekend, Mum & Dad would take me and my siblings to Peterborough and we would all go into Asda and bought our food and other essentials then walk across to George Asda and grab either school clothes or new pair of jeans, trainers and even accessories for me, my sister and mum.

    So imagine my surprise when I was contacted again to work with George Asda but this time create an outfit of #IWoreWhatNow. I had so much fun, going through old photos with my parents and reminiscing on the old times and my choice of outfits. It was such an amazing and emotional time, doing this project gave me some alone time with my parents and I couldn’t be happier.

    IWoreWhatNowA hearty and huge thank you from all my July 2016 sponsors. It was an honour and a privilege and hope to see you on the blog again.

    From my list above, whose your favourite sponsor?

      You have a great sponsors list, they are the reason why we (bloggers) are still here and motivated to write. They are simply awesome. My blog is only 5 years old but with that short range of time I gain trust from few advertiser who believe on my site. That really inspire me to keep going .

      • August 11, 2016 / 7:10 am

        It is always lovely and humbly to have a brand or sponsor who believes in your sites capability and continues to work with you.

      House of Fraser are amazing so it’s awesome that you get to work with them. And I’m another one who wondered if that Tom Cruise pic is really because I had no idea either!

      • August 9, 2016 / 8:14 am

        Hahaha I think most of us are in that boat about Tom Cruise

      • August 10, 2016 / 6:21 am

        Yeah there is a huge difference in Tom Cruise post dental implants

    19. August 9, 2016 / 4:23 am

      What great sponsors you have. I have a recent like for maxi dresses. They are so much comfier than shorts or pants. I am heading over to House of Fraser to pick out a few.

      • August 9, 2016 / 8:15 am

        Hope you find the ones you like, I am a huge fan of house of Fraser

      I find it interesting to have a sponsor round up. I have never heard of a blogger doing or really sharing any sponsors they have worked with.

      • August 9, 2016 / 8:17 am

        I like to showcase the sponsors I had the pleasure of working with and giving my readers a chance to catchup on some posts they might have missed

      • August 10, 2016 / 6:20 am

        Thank so much it’s an idea I came up with last year

    21. August 8, 2016 / 11:59 pm

      August 8, 2016 / 6:51 pm

      Great brands to have collaborated with, think my fave would be House of Fraser x

      • August 9, 2016 / 8:25 am

        Thanks, yes I love me some House o Fraser

      • August 10, 2016 / 6:17 am

        Thanks Jenni

    27. August 8, 2016 / 6:37 pm

      This is such a great idea to do an overview/round-up for each month. I am absolutely loving those maxi-dresses from House of Fraser! I love that you wrote you don’t take anyone for granted. It’s so true. Without brands and readers we couldn’t do our “jobs”. So important to remember we need each other!

      • August 9, 2016 / 8:26 am

        Absolutely, I think when we start to take both brands and readers for granted we loose perspective

      • August 10, 2016 / 6:17 am

        We can’t afford to take any of them for granted otherwise we lose perspective

    28. Shannon Ritchie
      August 8, 2016 / 5:28 pm

      That’s some great companies you’ve worked with! I can’t believe the difference to Tom Cruise haha!

      • August 9, 2016 / 8:27 am

        Tell me about it lol, thanks

      • August 10, 2016 / 6:17 am

        I know right and yes they are great companies/brands

    29. Jelli
      August 8, 2016 / 4:36 pm

      Wow, you’ve got such a great partnership with LOTS of people- that’s great! I’ve been blogging for about 6 years and am still working on building up that aspect. Love the maxi dresses you picked. Hope your August find you even more partnerships.

      • August 9, 2016 / 8:28 am

        Awe thanks so much Jelli, I am honoured that they chose to work with me.

      • August 10, 2016 / 6:16 am

        Thanks so much Jelli, I have been amazed and honoured to have these partnerships when I least expected them

      • August 8, 2016 / 1:26 pm

        He sure did and thanks to those dental implants lol

    31. August 8, 2016 / 10:31 am

      I honestly can’t believe the difference in Tom Cruise so it has to be the implants x

      • August 8, 2016 / 1:26 pm

        I couldn’t believe it either

    32. LaaLaa
      August 8, 2016 / 9:13 am

      Some good companies, oh the dental implants for Tom Cruise I’ve always thought was a must have! x
