Outfit Post – Wearing Hoodlum Lamorna Faux Fur Hood

I wrote about this Hoodlum Lamorna Faux Fur Hood last week and how it would make a great gift this Christmas. Well, I finally got the opportunity to wear mine the other day and I am so glad I did. The hood is so pretty. It is great for the very cold winter days and nights ahead. The design is amazing and it is great quality. This Lamorna Faux Fur Hood by Hoodlum Clothing is from the limited Winter Lux Collection. It is designed to combat colder weather. The lovely handmade cosy hood is lined with luxury faux fur that locks in warmth, which makes it the perfect addition to my winter wardrobe.

Here is a brief description of the luxury faux fur hood from Hoodlum Clothing Brand

Superior Grey Husky Faux Fur with Natural Herringbone Harris Tweed

This herringbone has a subtle combination of nature tones that evoke the wilds of the Cornish countryside. The Grey Husky faux fur perfectly colour matches the earth colours of the tweed with its multi-tonal greys and black flecks. This is would look great on a man as well as a women.

A handcrafted hardwood button fastens the hood.

Will sit as a shawl when worn down.

Did you know?

*Collaborative post.

As a blogger, being able to secure a blog collaboration, whether that’s to receive a product or it’s paid, is a great achievement. If you’ve not managed to secure one yet, then there’s probably a few things that you’re missing. So here are some tips to help secure a blog collaboration.

Post Consistently

Posting regularly is important because it shows those individuals or companies that are looking for bloggers that you’re posting consistently. If it looks as though you have no regular posting times or content going up in general, then they’re unlikely to want to work with you because there might not be enough promotion for them to utilize and they might also consider that you won’t post up immediately or on the deadline they have. So try to post consistently, even if it’s once a week at the same time. At least your readers will be familiar with your timings.

 

Create A Media Kit

A media kit is a great way of getting your blog out there in a professional manner, and when you can present a media kit, it can show them you mean business. A media kit is made up of an introduction to your blog, your social statistics, and the rates you’d charge for the business you offer to brands and clients in general. Having all this in one easy to read document is essential. So take a look at some examples that can easily be found online and start thinking about how you’d like to lay out your own so that you can start sending it out.

Improve Your SEO

SEO is hugely important to websites because the more friendly it can be to search engine optimization, the better your chances are at getting your blog seen by those that are important. There are a few things that you can do to improve it yourself, like fixing broken links and writing more long-form content. Working with a professional though might be handy, and there are companies out there like https://ignitedigital.com/mississauga-seo-search-engine-optimization/ who have great experience in providing the best SEO assistance for your website. It might be an investment that’s worth doing for your blog in order to get those collaborations you need.

 

Pitch To Brands Directly

Pitching to brands directly might seem a little nerve-racking, but it shows you’re passionate about working with the brand, and if you pitch it well, they’ll likely to agree on your terms. Always look to see what you can offer as a blogger and make sure you send your media kit with the pitch too. Make it personal to them and don’t be too aggressive or demanding in what you want because that might have the opposite effect to what you want.

Securing a blog collaboration can be such a great feeling when you achieve it. So create a media kit that can show off your work and pitch to brands directly. Improve the SEO of your website and post consistently to show you’re working hard.

 

Shopping Black Friday Sales?

*PR samples

Black Friday is around the corner and every shopaholic is talking about it. I am being bombarded with emails from all sorts of brands I can’t even remember subscribing to, and it makes me wonder why there is so much noise about Black Friday Sales in the UK all of a sudden. Looking back. we never really had Black Friday sales like we have them now. But it is a good thing. The sales allow me wrap up any on Christmas gifts and some of the items on sales are really good. I think the key to getting the Black Friday Sales done properly is to have a list of what you need and shop around for them.

Here are some ideas for Black Friday Sales if you need some shopping inspiration –

This stylish Hugo Boss piece would be a great investment to grab this Black Friday sales. It is a cotton jersey t shirt with a large hood, long sleeves and the signature Hugo Boss logo on the chest. I think it would make an excellent gift as it is such good quality. You can shop for this piece and more Black Friday deals on Mainline Menswear. There are so many pieces and accessories to quench your fashion thirst on the website.

 

BABY born Surprise

No shopping is ever complete without buying items for the kiddies. I enjoy shopping for the twins as it allows me explore all the cute clothing and toys now available for children. My daughter is a huge fan of collectibles and is forever collecting one brand or the other. The latest brand on her radar now is BABY born Surprise by Zapf Creation. She adores unboxing the collectibles to see what the characters and their accessories. This new range of BABY Born surprise has real fabric blanket. Water is used to wake the baby and reveal its eye colour. You can unwrap the swaddle to discover a unique hairstyle, and check the baby’s bottle to see whether they are a boy or girl!

This is one toy range worth shopping this Black Friday. The collectibles will make great gift ideas for the little ones. I know my little ones would adore the range. You can shop this range on Amazon, Argos, Smyths, The Entertainer and other good toy stores nationwide.

This Berry Open Flat Makeup Bag by The Flat Lay Co. is an excellent find to get your makeup in this Black Friday. I love the many compartments and how organised the makeup tools are looking. The makeup bags open completely flat and close in a second thanks to the smart drawstring design, and are fitted with pockets, zips and loops to keep products safely stored and visible. This is the best accessory to get organised this winter. It would be loved and desired by many beauty lovers.
