• {Monthly Roundup} June 2017 Sponsors ~ Thank you 

    June 2017 Sponsors is the sixth installment of the monthly roundup where I show my gratitude to my many sponsors. Obviously none of this would be possible without my incredible readers who time and again come back to A July Dreamer. Blogging is one avenue that I didn’t know much getting into but has incredibly changed my life in many ways. Four years ago on July 8th, I didn’t think any of this would be possible nor that this would be the most incredible hobby ever.

    March 2017 Sponsors

    Regular readers know I am a part-time blogger but try to push out content Monday through to Friday. It’s never easy as with everything you go through some good and some bad times. I have moments of pure inspiration and can write 5-10 posts in one sitting. Other times I could barely master the courage to type my minimum of 300 words. But after a couple of years even months under your belt you start to appreciate blogging and the fun side of its uncertainty.

    Part of that uncertainty is the incredible sponsors that reach out to me to collaborate. I also work with many PRs who represent incredible brands that sometimes I am gobsmacked they want to work with my little blog. Then there are times when you truly want to work with a brand because you believe in them and they say no. But dust yourself up and try something else because that’s how life is. Sometimes it’s a yes and all is well whilst other times it’s a no and can ruin your day. Your reaction to it all determines your path and if you will last in this “internet world” of blogging.

    June 2017 Sponsors 

    As mentioned earlier, I work with incredible PRs who represent amazing brands and this month I worked with them more than Brands directly. Whilst it’s always nice to work with the brand directly I feel with a PR you develop a relationship and which can only be good. I have had PRs who’ve recommended me to their friends and been working together since 2014. This was a time when I got serious about monetizing {making money} the blog after I bought a domain. Helping me stay afloat with my blog are these June 2017 sponsors who graced the blog throughout the month.

    June 2017 Sponsors ~ Home Collaborations

    When it comes to your home, you want only the best and I was happy to collaborate with these two brands. Smart living is a concept that has been around for the longest time. Majority of us have smart devices in our homes, be it the Fridge or the washing machine. It is hard to be more than a foot away from technology these days but can also be handy. Being able to control your home appliances whilst you’re out and about is something we all want to do. How many times have you forgotten to switch off an appliance and have to head back home? If you had smart appliances you could do it all from your phone.

    Outside appliances another important part of your home is the flooring you have. My entire apartment has carpet except for the bathroom where we have tiles. I have always thought about what types of flooring I want in my home and it’s always a tough choice. A choice narrowed down between Vinyl and Laminates but I knew nothing about these floor types and did some research.

    Travel Collaborations

    Regular readers know how much I love to travel so much that I travel at least one weekend a month. June has been the exception where I have traveled 3 weekends out of 4, well traveling the 4th too but home-bound. For me traveling is like getting a new pair of your favourite jeans or a taste of your favourite food. I can not get enough of it and wish I could travel every week but alas life has other plans. This year Disneyland Paris is celebrating 25 years of magical fantasy and I can not believe it. Disneyland Paris is the same age as my little sister so makes sense to plan a trip there soon.

    trench coat

    June 2017 Sponsors ~ Fashion Collaborations

    Fashion like traveling is life to me, no I am not a fashionista but I do love sharing outfit ideas. I believe that looking good does not only start from the outside but the inside. If you feel good inside it shows outside too and if you love your outfit it shows in how you wear it. Sometimes we might like something but looks nothing like we imagined or seen on others. I say, stop comparing your apple shape to their hourglass and vice versa, make it work for YOU.

    Fathers day 2017 gift ideas

    Father’s Day Gift Ideas

    June is one month in the year where we celebrate the amazing father’s doing their thing everyday. Anyone can be a dad but it takes a special person to be a father. This quote is one that I love so much, I am fortunate to have an amazing father. He’s the dad that everyone wants to have and we got him, we are totally blessed to have him. This year I wanted to do something extra special for my dad so I bought him an iPhone 6 plus. Whilst I always say these days Father’s day like Mother’s day are overly commercialized I knew he needed a new phone. But if buying him a phone wasn’t something you wanted to do, I shared these articles to help.

    And there you have it, the incredible and amazing sponsors I collaborated with in June 2017. All thanks to the awesome readers who time and again check out this small part of the internet world.

      This is such a great idea thanking your sponsors this way. We sometimes think saying thank you at the time is enough but this is another beautiful way of doing it.

      I am so impressed that you are a part-time blogger and you get so many sponsored posts. Kudos to you. I would love to know your secret!

      • July 2, 2017 / 8:02 am

        Thank you Mary, not sure it’s a secret but mostly it has been via connections and the rest I hear is word of mouth by the PRs etc.

      I would love to do a collaboration with Disney Paris. I always enjoy reading your posts. This is a great blog post idea.

      • July 2, 2017 / 8:02 am

        I would too and thanks Claudia

    15. July 1, 2017 / 3:01 pm

      You know have you ever thought about a post or series about working with brands? I know lots of bloggers would love to learn more about that whole world. Also a collaboration with Disney Paris?! That sounds amazing! That has actually been on my mind recently as I live in Spain now. I was thinking about how it would be fun to explore Disney as an adult and then was like “well should just go to Disney Paris because I’m so close now!”

      • July 2, 2017 / 8:04 am

        I did think about a post about working with brands but I always come up short because I don’t think I have anything to offer that many a blogger has not heard already. But I am not discounting it totally as I would love to do it one day.

      The post about the trench coats was life! There’s nothing like a well made trench coat over a simple minimal slip dress!

      • July 2, 2017 / 8:04 am

        Awww thanks Chelf, glad to hear that

      Sounds like you had a wonderful month. I love that you thank everyone at the end ot he month, it’s so important to be grateful and show appreciation 🙂

      • July 2, 2017 / 8:05 am

        Thanks Ania, its the least I can do honestly. The many sponsors have helped to shape some of my goals that I have achieved so this is the least I can do

      It’s so wonderful that you take the time to thank the brands and PR people you work with. Many good wishes are sent you way for continue blog growth and prosperity. (BTW: I loved my trip to Paris Disney! What a great way to celebrate your little sis’s birthday. )

      • July 2, 2017 / 8:06 am

        Thank you Denay, I appreciate that big time. I am hoping to take her on or after her birthday for sure

      You know this post is acting as a motivator to me , since I bought my domain only 3 months back & have been trying to monetize it early.. Great to know of PR associations and sponsorships which helps blog stay afloat!!

      • July 2, 2017 / 8:07 am

        I am so glad to hear that and wishing you the best. Working hard definitely pays especially with blogging and staying honest with integrity in tact.

      You always have great posts , I’m still hoping to get some sponsorships myself. Not sure why they cant see me ,lol. That’s a lot of brands you’ve worked with. Hardwork pays. Keep working hard

      • July 2, 2017 / 8:13 am

        Hahaha, I used to wonder (and still do) the same but in time things change and you become just what they are looking for

    21. June 30, 2017 / 10:11 pm

      Woohoo, Disney! I love all things Disney and you had some great tips on how to plan a trip to Paris. I can’t wait to get there. I want that trench coat.

      As always, you work with some fabulous brands! I always enjoy reading your posts.

      • July 2, 2017 / 8:12 am

      I LOVE traveling too. I currently don’t do sponsored posts, but that’s a major area I’d be interested in. Congrats on the wide variety of sponsors!

      • July 2, 2017 / 8:11 am

        Thanks Alayna, I wish you the best with the monetization side of blogging

      Love it! You’ve collaborated with some great brands – especially loved the father’s day gift ideas, that can be such a minefield…! Rx

      • July 2, 2017 / 8:10 am

        Thanks Rosanna, I had some incredible sponsors this ended month

    25. June 30, 2017 / 3:50 pm

      Oh my goodness, that picture of Paris Disney is stunning, and I wish I could go there! Will have to go back and check out your sponsored posts on those to learn more. Thanks for sharing, that’s quite a nice roundup!

      • July 2, 2017 / 8:10 am

        Thanks Whitney, at the time when I went to Disneyland Paris all I wanted to see was the castle and I snapped as many pictures as I could of it

      I love your blog and you do very well with it for only being a part-time blogger! I,too, am a huge fan of travel so I’ll be looking forward to reading more of your travel posts. I admire that you find great sponsors to work with and continue on when some may say no to working with you.

      • July 2, 2017 / 8:09 am

        Thank you Shannon, I have realized I can make my life more fun or not by how I react to rejection etc.
        I am hoping to share more travel posts this month so be on the look out for more on Romania, Bali and Switzerland.

        Thanks Stefanie, much appreciated

    28. June 30, 2017 / 6:06 am

      I don’t know how you accomplish all this part-time. You always choose amazing sponsors, write great articles and I’m always wanting to come back to read more. My favorite was your fashion peice. I struggle to find the time to keep
      Up with latest trends and need the updates to stay trendy.

      • June 30, 2017 / 6:16 am

        Aww thank you so much for your kind words.Often it’s a struggle but when you love doing something and have passion for it, then you make time no matter what.
