{Monthly Roundup} April 2018 Sponsors

A grateful heart is magnet for miracles, everyday I am grateful for the opportunities I have been afforded. April 2018 sponsors is a dedication post to the everyday opportunities that have come my way through the blog. Not once did I think, a hobby would become a side hustle that would feed my wanderlust heart.

I live everyday with a grateful heart and spend time everyday showing kindness to those less fortunate. It doesn’t have to be monetary, it can be taking the time to spend time with others. For my blog I know I can express my gratitude with a dedication post, hence the sponsors post.

{Monthly Roundup} April 2018 Sponsors

The April 2018 Sponsors roundup is the fourth appreciation post of the year showcasing my Sponsors. A July Dreamer we collaborate with a variety of brands and companies. We do not discriminate whether big or small, A July Dreamer is always happy to collaborate. Visit our Work with Me page to find out our fees and types of collaborations we offer. Thank you everyone for supporting the brands that support me.

At the beginning of the month I had an incredible opportunity to collaborate with Marks and Spencer. Our newly opened shopping centre, Orchard centre recently unveiled the new Marks and Spencer Food Hall. This was music to my ears when I had an opportunity to try out some of my favourite foods and desserts. I can not tell you how happy I am to have an M&S so close to home and thanks M&S for having me.

Our next collaboration was with Groupon whom I have spoken about before and my love for their awesome deals. The recent deal was in relations to outdoor lighting, with Spring in the air its the ideal setting. Often when I check out Groupon, I am in search of getaway deals and home furniture than outdoor lighting.

Speaking of Spring, I recently shared our Spring cleaning routine and provided some alternatives. There are times when scrubbing top to bottom just won’t do unless you replace the item. I can say that for my current shower cubicle which has seen better days. The awesome folks at Insignia Showers definitely gave me an idea for the next installation.

April 2018 Sponsors – Product Reviews

It is not often that I shared product reviews on A July Dreamer but April I had a couple. Having recently upgrade to Samsung S9+ I was in need of a new phone case. Imagine my delight when GoCustomized reached out to collaborate together. As someone who loves customised products I knew this would be a great one to do. The process was easy as 1-2-3 and delivery wasn’t bad either, the quality was exceptional.

Another product review we did this month was with Philex, a technology company. I have often said I needed a dash cam not realising that Philex would want to collaborate. Now I have one and love using it to record all the road shenanigans. The wireless charging base has been by far my favourite gadget to play with lately.

Thank you to all the April 2018 Sponsors, it’s been a real pleasure working together. Lets work together again soon, it is always a humbly  to work with you all.

    You’ve had a great month and it sounds like you worked with some brilliant sponsors. I keep forgetting to keep an eye on Groupon for good deals, my sister-in-law always uses them.

    • May 3, 2018 / 5:31 am

      Thank you Cath, you should definitely check them out. I look through them daily for some awesome deals

    What a great life as a blogger – to work with so many different brands. There is certainly a lot to be grateful for. I especially love the deals offered through Groupon. Checking out the outdoor lighting deal now ☺️

    • May 3, 2018 / 5:29 am

      It is a great life I won’t lie but it is a tough one too as all these were commitments to be fulfilled at one point but even then I still love saying thank you for choosing to work with me.

  14. May 2, 2018 / 5:34 am

    Another great post! I honestly love Groupon, so many great deals on there.
    Xo, Sondra

    I checked out those shower enclosers and now I want one. I wish I had known about these before my bathroom remodel last year.

    • May 1, 2018 / 9:53 pm

      Aint they just the best looking shower cubicles ever? I definitely hope to get one, one day

  20. May 1, 2018 / 4:58 pm

    Mark and Spensers really do some delicious food don’t they? We don’t have the department store here but we do have a good store and hands up we sneak in from time to time!

    • May 1, 2018 / 9:54 pm

      We don’t have the department store one here either just the Food Hall which I love to get my bits and bobs

  21. May 1, 2018 / 3:49 pm

    What a lovely way to round off the month and give your kind sponsors another shout out 🙂

    • May 1, 2018 / 9:55 pm

      Thank you, I feel its the least I can do

  22. May 1, 2018 / 1:34 pm

    I enjoyed reading your posts last month. The spring cleaning routine was helpful since I’m pretty awful at going through everything. And Groupon always has the BEST deals!

    • May 1, 2018 / 9:55 pm

      Thanks Amber, that means a lot. I do love a good deal off Groupon and glad the Spring cleaning helped.

    I love that as a part time blogger you were able to work with so many different sponsors over the course of April. I also think it is a really nice gesture for you to write a post thanking all of them. You’ve given me hope for someone who has just started out as a blogger.

    • May 1, 2018 / 9:56 pm

      I am glad to hear that Ally, I think its the least I can do as there are so many other bloggers in the sphere that they could work with but chose me.
