Giveaway – Win 6 Mavala Lipsticks Worth £78

*PR Samples.

 

Hey Beauty Lovers! Today I am giving away not 1 but 6 shades of Mavala Lipsticks, from the Sunlight Lipstick Collection. For those who have never heard of these lipsticks, they are so amazing. They come in 6 shades – Fantasy Rose, Terra Viva, Coral Orange, Scarlet Red, Cloud Beige and Terra Rossa.  I have all 6 shades myself and they are top quality lipsticks. My current favourite is Scarlet Red (because I like my lips bright and bold) ND Terra Rossa (for when I want a toned down look).

These Mavala Lipsticks not only leave your lips looking good, they also care for them underneath as well. The lipsticks prevent dryness. They soften and regenerate the lips, thanks to shea butter, aloe vera and vitamin E. Each lipstick currently goes for £13.

Where I Get Inspiration for Blog Posts

*Affiliate Links.

 

I have been blogging on Fashion and Style Police for over 6 years now, and it has been an amazing experience. Many people wonder how I manage to run a blog for this long and publish new posts regularly. I think it comes down to my genuine love for writing. Writing is my creative outlet and my happy place. I can’t see myself not writing. It is not a chore for me at all, and that explains how I do it. Another question I get a lot is where I get my inspiration for my blog posts. I see inspiration everywhere and I tap into it.

My inspiration comes from different places – my children, books, blogs, social media, tv series/movies, magazines, in life settings, and everywhere in between.

Where I Get Inspiration for Blog Posts

 

The Kiddies

I get a lot of inspiration from my twins. They keep me very busy and I enjoy watching them explore the world around them. They give me inspiration for my blog posts especially posts for Kids Section Category on here. It is amazing to see the world through their eyes and I am enjoying every bit of parenting them, even when they make me repeat myself every minute.

Reading Books

Reading is my favourite thing to do. I love reading non fiction books on my Amazon Kindle and I am currently on a read a book a week challenge. I have read 12 books already this year, and I get a lot of inspiration from the books I read. The book I have just finished is A Pocketful of Holes and Dreams by Jeff Pearce. I finished reading it yesterday and I gained a lot of insight from the book.

Social Media

Social media is full of inspiration. I learn something new everyday on my social media platforms. It does feel like information overload sometimes, but if you mute the noise, you get a thing or 2 from them. Social media itself is an inspiration. All the platforms are very inspiring in their own way.

 

Other Blogs

Other blogs inspire me. I enjoy reading different types of blogs, from fashion and beauty blogs, to parenting and travel. Lifestyle blogs are my favourite because the posts vary and they cover a variety of topics. I can find myself scrolling some blogs for hours. It is amazing how creative bloggers are. One of my favourite Lifestyle Blogs from the day I stared blogging until now is Forever Amber. She covers all various topics and I find her writing style and photography amazing.

 

Magazines

To be honest, I hardly read magazines these days. Back in the day, I read a couple of magazines each month, from Cosmo to Glamour. But nowadays I only find myself reading my Boots free magazine. Maybe because I am forever reading a book, and there is no time to actually a magazine. But I still get many ideas from reading the only magazine I do read. Magazines are full of inspiration.

 

TV Series/Movies

I am not usually a TV person, but I do enjoy watching a couple of TV series like Call the Midwife, Married to Medicine, Real Housewives of Atlanta, The Mummy Diaries, and many more. Watching movies on Netflix/Amazon Prime is another way I unwind in the evenings, and I get inspiration from what I watch.

In Real Life

Inspiration is everywhere I look. I am inspired everyday as soon as I set out. It could me spotting a lovely outfit, or a well made up face. I could get inspired from a conversation I am drawn into or I overhear. It could be anything really.

 

There is a thin line between getting inspiration from someone/something and copying. Every creative should be aware of this invisible line and be sure not to go over it.
