Blogger Outreach 101*

in , , , , , , , , by Nikki LLL Blog, October 31, 2018

The only thing I can really say I'm an expert in is being a full time knobhead. So pls, to those of you out there who stumble across this post & are pure experts in all things outreach, forgive me if I'm pretty much chatting out me arse.

That being said tho, I have been blogging for four years and I do get asked a fair few questions about where to find blogging opportunities, the best way to conduct blogger outreach campaigns & how to contact / pitch to brands. So I don't think I'm totally irrelevant, yeno?

Therefore - for this collaborative post, I thought I'd lay a few tips & bits out there for ya. Looking at the whole concept of blogger outreach; from both sides of the [proverbial] fence.

I've tried a few of Madame La La's products before, which I rly liked, so when these lil beauts turned up on me doorstep recently, I was buzzin'. 

Their Bronzing Ball* is a product I've owned in the past [which I used up as I loved it and its fab coconutty smell] so that was a nice lil top-up. And the fake tan... well, I've wanted to try this stuff since pretty much FOREVER... so it was straight outta the box & smeared all over my body as soon as the [new] postman had gone [Paul the Postman has retired guys, I'm properly devoed 😢] so I could try it.

I love sharks. Even more so when said sharks are cool AF gadgets for your HAIR. From one of my fave ever online gift retailers; Prezzybox [whose website is lookin' mighty fiiiiiine and packed full of Christmas inspo; may I add.]

If you've not heard of HairShark Pro Backcombers* yet, then kween... take a seat. With its clever design, versatility & fab backstory as to how these bad lads originally made it onto Prezzybox's site, this product makes for a post too good to missEven if I do say so myself.

Before I quickly nipped to the corner shop for some emergency cookies the other day, I thought I'd pop on a bit of foundation or something. Mostly just to mask my rancid face, therefore causing minimal trauma to the local smackheads I'd likely see en-route [they look like they've already had enough aggro in their lives without that added infliction; poor sh*ts.]

I wasn't gonna waste MY ABSOLUTE ALL TIME FAV Makeup Revolution Foundation Drops on the slightly odd fella in the shop, so I had a rummage about the back of my makeup drawer into my backup foundation stockpile for something to use. The end result being something so horrific it has vividly scarred me and p*ssed me off to the extent I felt I wanted to write about it.

When I told me pal Georgina that the lil box the postman delivered to me had a cake inside it, she pretty much told me to sh*t off.  

How would you even send a cake in the post? How would it arrive in one piece? Who is the genius behind this sorcery?

Well huns, I'll give you the very same answer I gave her; as we carefully unboxed this #bloggermail of DREAMS together, simultaneously squealing as we revealed its perfect contents... bakerdays. The official home of personalised cakes for all occasions - even ones compact enough to fit through ya letterbox.

Throwing a Halloween Party? If so, can I come

In exchange for your hospitality, I'll let you in on a little secret - you can grab the best decorations, fancy dress and sweets to properly kit out ya gaff this year [without spending a small fortune] from Home Bargains' Hallow-Scream range. Which'll 10/10 ensure that your spooky celebrations go down a treat. [I could try and squeeze in a really cheesy trick or treat pun here but I'll spare ya. For now.]

Not like that Halloween party we attempted in student halls that time, with the worst punch you've ever tasted and a bit of apple bobbing outta the washing up bowl. That was just eerily sh*t tbh, hun. Not remotely scary at all. Or a treat.

My skin craves Antipodes products like Super Hans from Peep Show craves crack. Lovely, moreish crack. It therefore rejoiced & / or buzzed its proverbial tits off when I had the chance to try these beaut new products from the brand recently.

It seems like it's not alone either - I've heard nothing but good things about Antipodes from pretty much every blogger I follow / stalk - & yous all left proper babein' comments on this pic of me latest line-up [below] when I posted it on Insta recently.

I got a lil surprise parcel from my baes at So...? recently, who've just released ANOTHER game-changing scent into our lives. 

This fragrance, as you may have guessed from my heavily Katy Perry fuelled title, is Sorbet Dream; and it's an absolute 10/10. Available in body mist* form or as a perfume*; this sweet smelling bottle of lilac loveliness has been sprayed upon my person [and taken with me on my recent business trip to Milton Keynes, where everything stinks of horse turd] more times than I can count.

The Evolution Of Modern Dating*

in , , , , by Nikki LLL Blog, October 12, 2018

Romance: Then and Now...

If you compare the dating world of the past to dating in 2018, you might be forgiven for believing that romance is well and truly dead. With an abundance of dubious dating apps, ‘Netflix & chill’ and social media hook-ups, it’s no surprise that many of us feel rather disheartened with the idea of looking for love. 

According to a recent study by eHarmony, however, all is not lost: their Happiness Index study (a study of attitudes towards love and romance with more than 2,000 participants) found millennials to be the most romantic generation of all. To investigate how attitudes towards romance have evolved over time, I’ve teamed up with Angelic Diamonds, retailer of custom engagement rings

Dress To Impress: How To Alter Your Favourite Pieces*

by Nikki LLL Blog, October 12, 2018

Whatever the occasion, I know I - and most gals, like to dress to impress wherever possible. And nailing this can be a lot simpler than you think!

Yous are probably aware by now [as I not so subtly explained in this post] that I am NOT into Autumn / Winter. But since this seasonally themed Little Known Box arrived in me life recently, I can at least a bit agree now that this cold time of year has its benefits. And by benefits, I'm PURELY referring to this box, like; let's not get carried away. Wanna see why?

Little Known Box September 2018 Review, Lovelaughslipstick Blog

On October 21st, it's my blog's 4th flipping anniversary. Where the heck has that time gone, like?!

...and on the 31st October it is, of course; Halloween

Today's post sorta celebrates all those things [bar the Bake Off rly, tho I did buy some SICK Halloween sprinkles & icing from B&M this weekend] - featuring a brand focus write-up on Makeup Revolution's limited edition Halloween makeup range and details of the HUGE SPOOKY GIVEAWAY I'm holding over on my Twitter [to coincide with my 4th blog-anniversary] where you can win all the MUR beauty items pictured in this post

Aite gang. I don't really have a life, so this title may be somewhat classed as clickbait, but I wanted to sit down and share some stuff with yous today. I enjoy writing personal posts - and you guyz seem to enjoy them too, so as with everything in my life at the moment: YOLO; let's av it. My motto, mantra & most commonly used word RN [along with sh*t, bellend and Clive obv.]

I'm sat here right now [in bed, as I am 99% of the time] in comfy leggings & my oversized M A N C H E S T E R top [the bee, not pure Man United kit] full on incandescent, fiery rage. Why? Let me tell you, my friend.
