How brands can work with fashion bloggers

*Collaborative post.

Fashion and Style Police was initially set up as purely a fashion blog in 2012. I was so into fashion back in the day (I still am but into other things as well now) and I wanted a creative outlet to explore all the crazy fashion and style ideas I had. That quest led to the creation of this blog. If you scroll through my fashion posts category, you will find all sorts of content on fashion and style. Over the years, I have learned how to create my own space on the web and how to stand out as a fashion blogger.

How brands can work with fashion bloggers

In other to succeed as a fashion blogger and start to earn an income from your blog, you need to attract brands who will be interested in working with you on your blog and social media platforms.

As a fashion blogger, there are so many ways to work with brands but I will be talking about the most popular ways to collaborate with brands and earn some money whilst doing so.

Sponsored posts

Sponsored posts are one of the most popular and lucrative ways of earning money from your blog. Once you grow your blog and start getting steady traffic, you will start to attract brands who are willing to work with you on sponsored posts. Sponsored posts usually work with the brand and you collaborating on a blog post. This involves agreeing on the theme of the post, images, links, and anchor texts. An agreement on a fee and terms of payment is usually done prior to the post being written.

Sponsored posts work great for fashion bloggers UK and brands as they are a great way of promoting a brand and earning income for the blogger as well.

Product reviews

This is similar to sponsored posts but the only difference is that products are sent to the bloggers to be photographed and reviewed on the blog. Sometimes the bloggers receive payments and sometimes they don’t. I have published product reviews on this blog for years. Some are sponsored by brands and some are not. The truth is I enjoy trying new products and sharing my thoughts with you all. I really like photographing new pieces and accessories and showcasing them on the blog and on social media platforms. Having a fashion blog enables me to connect with various fashion brands and explore their amazing collections. It is a win-win.

Product review collaborations are a great way to work with brands. It is great especially for new UK fashion bloggers who are trying to stand out from the saturated blogging industry and create exciting content for their blog.

Affiliate marketing

This is another way to make money as a fashion blogger or any kind of blogger. For every affiliate link a reader clicks and makes a purchase, you get a commission.  I started affiliate marketing some years ago and it has been a steady way of working with different brands and earning some money by the side while providing engaging content for my blog visitors.

How to get the best out of your collaborations with bloggers with Get Blogged Marketplace

It is wise to agree on the terms of the collaboration before starting. Payment terms should be agreed upon prior to the collaboration. As a blogger, I always appreciate it when brands send me all the details I need in as few emails as possible. The back and forth can be draining and time-consuming. This is why it is easier for all parties involved to understand exactly what the collaboration would entail as quickly as possible.

This is one of the reasons why I love working with Get Blogged Marketplace. Posting a job on Get Blogged Marketplace is a quick, easy, and profitable way to work with many UK Fashion bloggers.

Simple Christmas Outfit Ideas To Try This Year

*Collaborative post.

Fashion doesn’t take holidays, and even around the festive season, we want to look our best and impress and family get-togethers. 

This year has been one different from any other and we have seldom had reason to get dressed up and have fun. But today we want to change that to show you that you can dress to impress this Christmas and have fun at home. 

Here are some ideas for fashionable outfits you can wear this winter to really bring that Christmas spirit to life. 

A retro getup 

There is nothing better than a bit of nostalgia – and Christmas time is a great opportunity to look back on the past and bring it into our wardrobes. You can look online for some 70s inspired velour jumpsuits to wear with a pair of hoop earrings and heels for your Christmas party. If you aren’t a jumpsuit kind of girl, a 50s style dress with a fit and flare style could be a wonderful way to bring some retro charm to Christmas. However, I always love 1970s Outfit Ideas.

Classic golden goddess 

There are not many times in the year when you get to wear metallic colours such as silver and gold without looking overdressed. Luckily for you, Christmas is one of those times where it fits perfectly. Wow your family and friends this Christmas with a stunning gold dress in a bodycon fit and consider bringing a body chain into the mix for extra glam. Getting dressed up for Christmas is fun so make sure that you make the most of things you couldn’t wear at any other time of the year.

Monochrome magic 

One of the classic ways to dress at Christmas time is to choose a monochrome outfit and add a bright red touch with shoes or lips. There are some amazing ways to pull off a monochrome look this Christmas and you can choose a colour block dress, a black skirt and white top, or even some skinny white jeans with a black plunge top. Have some fun playing around with the fit and style of your clothing and enjoy the simplicity and timelessness of it. 

A glitzy dress 

Christmas is a time to play around with glitz and glam – and a sequined dress could be the ideal option to bring some festive cheer to your celebrations. A fun sequin dress can be any colour or a combination of colours and will bring that little bit of Christmas magic to your life this year.

A festive jumper and skirt 

If you enjoy going a little more comfortable and practical close to Christmas it is a good idea for you to wear a festive jumper with a simple skater skirt. A festive jumper with all the fixings and garishness is in the true Christmas spirit and a cute little skirt to tick it in will bring a more childlike look to your Christmas Day. Plus, once you have eaten a huge roast dinner you can hide your bloat in the jumper and no one will know!

When to Buy Vintage Sapphire Jewellery

*Collaborative post.

When is it time to buy vintage sapphire jewellery? It’s hard to say, for some people. If you’re one of these people, please read on – you’re about to learn everything you need to know about when to buy vintage sapphire jewellery.

Why Buy Vintage Sapphire Jewellery?

Before we get on to the when let’s briefly cover the why. The simplest answer is that vintage sapphire jewellery is the best. I know, for some that’s not enough, so here’s some more detail. Buying vintage or antique when it comes to jewellery is not only cost-efficient, but also an eco-friendly move. It’s a common misconception that living an environment-friendly life means living without luxury.

Buying antique and vintage jewellery is a great way to reuse jewellery, rather than having it go to waste. It also doesn’t demand the gemstone trade, preventing further damage to the planet from gemstone mining, since every vintage and antique item already exists and doesn’t need to be ‘crafted’ from new materials. If you needed any more reasons to buy pre-loved jewellery, then consider that, carat-to-carat, you usually get more for your money with vintage and antique than you do with brand new. You can get stunning jewellery for a fraction of the cost if you were to go to a jeweller’s and buy something made new. An added plus is that most of the designs of antique and vintage jewellery are unique and unlike anything you’re likely to find in a chain jewellery store.

Now that we’ve established that, let’s dive into the when.

Engagements

It’s a no brainer that vintage sapphire rings make for beautiful engagement rings. Obviously, if you already know that a diamond engagement ring is what you want, then perhaps it’s not the choice for you, but you should definitely consider it. Even an engagement ring that features both diamonds and sapphires is a beautiful way to incorporate some colour and life into your engagement ring.

If you want an engagement ring that really looks like an engagement ring, then sapphire and diamonds paired together are almost a more perfect match than you and your fiancé/fiancée. Not only are they fit for royalty – literally the engagement ring Kate Middleton wears – but they’re every bit as versatile and classically beautiful as their diamond counterparts. So, if you or your loved one are fans of the colour blue, or maybe you’re just interested in something different for your proposal, then consider buying a vintage sapphire ring.

Birthdays

In case you didn’t know, sapphire is the birthstone for people born in September. Just as the summer dies off and the cold months start coming in, sapphires are there to remind you that cold doesn’t have to mean dim and glum, it can mean classy and elegant. If September is a birth month to someone you love (like you!), perhaps getting some vintage sapphire jewellery as a birthday present is a right way to go.

It can be anything, from a vintage sapphire ring to a necklace, earrings, or a bracelet. At the moment, brooches are having a big revival, so maybe something in that direction would be nice. What matters is that you get something that suits the giftee well. To establish what would work, have a look at jewellery they already own. Something with the same coloured metal, or gemstones cut to the same shape might be an indicator of their preferences. If they don’t yet own any jewellery, stick with something simple and small, as they might not be used to wearing jewellery.

Anniversaries

For everyone who has already tied the knot, the 45th wedding anniversary is the sapphire anniversary. That’s a looong time to wait. Thankfully, there are no wedding anniversary police to stop you from celebrating the sapphire anniversary 40 years early. Of course, if you’d rather remain traditional, then it’s a lovely idea to wait to celebrate the sapphire anniversary of your 45th year of marriage. If it is the 45th year you’re celebrating, sapphire jewellery could not be more appropriate. Anyone approaching their 45th wedding anniversary sometime in the next few decades is sure to find some vintage sapphire jewellery that’s the same age as their marriage – what could be more perfect?

You can also gift sapphire jewellery if you are not a member of the relationship. If your parents or grandparents are going to be celebrating their sapphire wedding anniversary any time soon, maybe you could get some people to pool together and treat them to something beautiful that shows how much you love them as a unit. A vintage sapphire signet ring or some sapphire earrings, for example, would be beautiful and simple.

We’ve uncovered the main reasons to buy vintage sapphire jewellery, but you must remember that these are just suggestions, and there are no real rules about how and when to buy your jewels. If you want to buy a vintage sapphire ring to celebrate a Tuesday, then you’d best believe that’s a great idea. Thinking outside the box for occasions to gift jewellery – to yourself or anyone else – is the key to maintaining good relationships and enjoying life. Have fun with it!
