2020: That's A Wrap!

by Nikki LLL Blog, December 30, 2020

Christ. Dunno why I've even challenged myself to write this post, cos my lawd this year's been a maddun hasn't it. 

I could come to some pure philosophical, wise and positivity-fuelled conclusion and go full girl-boss-MLM-lifeiswhatyoumakeit on you, but I won't. You can't polish a turd. THIS YEAR HAS BEEN SHITE IN SO MANY WAYS, and I'm not gonna gloss over that and not address the huge BEAST of an elephant in the (metaphorical) 2020 room. I hate the Rona, I hate whoever decided to scran a bat and I hate that these past 12 months have limited so many people; in so many ways (and f*cking killed so many, too.)

AD | Vitamin D - Are You Getting Enough?

by Nikki LLL Blog, December 06, 2020

Yes, that title is filled with innuendo and clickbaity-ness. But if you've clicked on to this post because of that, please stick around to learn more about the importance of actual Vitamin D in your diet & lifestyle. 

After the absolute disaster that was 2020, the importance of health and doing what we can to help ourselves remain well has never been more prevalent - so if one of your goals for 2021 is to start a healthkick and treat your body to much needed vitamins, nutrients and other goodness; don't underestimate the importance of the D as part of this. Vitamin D.

AW20 | New Season Glam With GODDIVA*

by Nikki LLL Blog, November 29, 2020
Wow. It's like I blinked and the entirety of 2020 was just gone... and I've not been anywhere or done anything notable to remember it by, except stay indoors and swerve socialising for the best part of 9 months 😂 

I don't know about you, but as we come out of yet another lockdown, I've never wanted to dress up and enjoy new season fashion more than I do right now. Christmas and New Year are undoubtedly going to be different this year - no parties, nights out in Alma and no huge gatherings with friends / family... but any chance of glamming up & socialising in any form, I will be seizing with both hands and going full glam for. 
When compared to shaving and waxing, by subjecting one’s skin to an effective laser hair removal treatment from a renowned clinic, the days of worrying about flaunting one’s body are over as laser body hair removal arrests the activation of the hair follicles for a long time after the treatment has been administered to the recipient.

On that note, these days, men are also moving towards laser body hair removal treatment as it offers a lot of benefits over traditional body hair removal techniques. 

Everything You Need to Know About Opening a Beauty Salon*

by Nikki LLL Blog, November 26, 2020
If you've spent any time in a beauty salon, you'll be well aware that they can be an absolutely magical place. Clients might walk in looking perfectly ordinary, but they are transformed and walk out looking like they're headed for the red carpet. Whatever it is that a client wants - whether it's aqua blue hair or goddess braids, beauty experts are always up for the challenge. But before you open your own enchanting beauty salon, there's a few things you'll need to know. 

Marketing Yourself For A Successful Job Opportunity*

by Nikki LLL Blog, November 23, 2020
When it comes to marketing yourself for a new job, we know it can be a challenge and there are many things to think about. If you are a shy person at heart the idea of bigging yourself up to a prospective employer might be a mean feat, but it is worth it if it gets you a once in a lifetime opportunity. 

Today we want to talk about selling yourself for a new job, and just a few of the things you can do to help yourself find a job you love and one that doesn’t make you feel stressed out each and every day. 

Seen one gift guide, seen them all, right? Well not this one hun - there's none of that same-old, same-old over here. I wanted to share a gift idea today from a company I love & have worked with a few times previously - a website which helps hundreds of thousands of independent artists and brands sell their work in differing formats around the globe. During a time where (thanks to that cow Ms Rona) these people need our support more than ever

Taking REAL Charge Over The Way You Look*

by Nikki LLL Blog, November 16, 2020
How do you change the way you look, with some real substance and flair? Well, you could always do your hair up, or put some new clothes on, but you might not really feel like a different person. Most of all, you probably won’t feel like yourself either, and that really is a problem. 

Which is why it’s time to take charge over your look. Thankfully, this can be done in just a few easy steps. If you feel like you need a real change right now, make sure you follow the suggestions below. They’re not for someone who just wants to update their wardrobe a little!
Dresses are the best! They truly are, and below, we're going to clue you in on why. Oh, and if you are wondering why you need seven dresses in your wardrobe, it's because we think they are so good that you should wear one every single day!

Another week, another lockdown. Bored of it yet? I mean, obviously I am (despite the amount of work I have to keep me going atm!) but I'm not gonna be a gammon'ed and march in town claiming to have 'reclaimed the steps' or keep moaning about it. This is life as we know it right now - and it's all about surviving and navigating it as best as we can. And staying home, not mixing with other households and not crying about microchips & robot pigeon spies on Twitter dot com

How Do You Relax When You Spend All Day At Home?!*

by Nikki LLL Blog, November 04, 2020
Cheers, Boris. Over November, we've got pretty much nothing to look forward to other than exercising. 2020 couldn’t get any worse! The New Year can’t come around fast enough. Imagine the novelty of being able to eat out and meet friends without getting nicked! Jokes aside, the idea of being stuck in the house, apart from the odd opportunity to nip out to the shop or for a walk, isn’t appealing. Even worse, it makes it harder to relax when the thing you do to de-stress - chill on the sofa and binge-watch Netflix - isn’t novel.

Posting Parcels & Saving The Planet, With Lil Packaging*

by Nikki LLL Blog, November 01, 2020

The world's on its arse at the moment, and I can't cope. But as a side effect, business as we know it is constantly changing and adapting - including the way we shop, the way retailers are operating (with many brick & mortar stores taking the leap in going digital) and even the way we're communicating with others. 

Obv, one of the the most used phrases of 2020 is 'Zoom Call'... but we've also been relying on delivery and postal services more than ever during this time too; ordering things to be delivered to loved ones (ie I've ordered a tablet for my Mum, so we can live the aforementioned video call life.) And mailing other items I've bought for the family cat online via couriers, including a four-poster mini doll bed from Ikea for her to sleep in; like the true prinny she is 😂

Honestly huns if there's one thing I love, it's perfume / fragrance. Well, amongst a lot of other things, let's be real (my love of cheddar cheese cannot be denied)... but I do have a real soft spot for scent. And the design of the bottles. 

Gah, you don't even wanna know what my basket looks like on the Boots website rn, whilst they've got a 15% off on fragrances thing going on. I keep nearly checking out about 74 bottles of some of my faves (Mugler Alien, Marc Jacobs Daisy Love, the Ariana Grande perfumes, Hugo Boss For Her, Chloe... even some throwback JLo Glow AND my most purchased perfume ever from the years 2010-2014; Britney Spears Fantasy 😂) but the one thing that stops me - and especially stops me trying a new scent on a whim? The price. There's no way I'm pyar splurging £60 on a new bottle of perfume on a decision formed off the back of a written description alone... only for it to turn up and smell like the basement dancefloor of The Blue Angel. (If you know, you know.)
