Product Review: A Massage Oil and a Cleansing Body Wash

I like a good massage. There is nothing better than having a full body massage. Trust me, it is the best feeling in the world, as long as you have it done with the right products and hands.

I try to take time off regularly to go for a good massage. With the nature of my work and my busy life, I see this regular treatments as a necessity not luxury. A good massage kind of puts my body back together.

This review post is all about an Aromotherapy Associates Restful and Tranquil Massage Oil and a Sanctuary Spa Cleansing Burst Body Wash.

Product Review: skin Chemists Placenta Serum & Moisturiser

I had the opportunity to review the skin Chemists Placenta Serum and Moisturiser some weeks ago, and I grabbed the opportunity with both hands. I am a huge fan of the skin Chemists brand. I used the skin Chemists Coldtox Activ+ Professional Facial Treatment some months ago, and it did good wonders to my skin.  So I was very excited when these landed on my doorstep.

  4. They leave my skin feeling and looking silky smooth, and very radiant.

CONS

  1. I found both products made my skin feel a little dry, so I always massaged a small amount of face oil after applying these.

My Custom Stickers

fashion-and-style-police-stickers-image

 

Being an online entrepreneur means there is a lot of self promotion going on. I mean it would be silly to set up a blog or any kind of business and not promote the hell out of it. I just published a post on how blogging can be a job, so have a read and share your thoughts on it.

I am not quite a professional when it comes to self promotion. I am better at promoting others but I have come to realise that for me to promote others successfully, I have to be able to promote myself first. And that is where these custom stickers come in.

I got these custom stickers sent to me some days ago and I am loving them. They have been keeping me very busy.

The lovely people at StickerApp got in touch and offered to send me some custom stickers, and I jumped at the offer. I have always wanted stickers with my blog design, so this opportunity was amazing collaboration.

For those who have never heard of StickerApp, it is printing company with more than 9 years in the business of printing custom stickers, so these guys know what they are doing when it comes to stickers in general.

I found the StickerApp website very navigate, I didn’t need special instructions or dummies guide to place my order. It was a smooth process, and I got my custom stickers within a week of placing my order, which was fab. I went for a glossy coated vinyl material (which is actually StickerApp’s bestselling material), 14.4x3cm, and 84 in quantity, which I believe is more than enough. The order was just under £35, so it is quite affordable.

As you can see, I have been playing around with my stickers already, sticking them everywhere and anywhere. I find decorating my notebooks very relaxing. Do you find it relaxing?

The notepad above is where I write all my blog secrets, so many of my blog ideas and freelance work is drafted in there. I got this notepad at the beginning of the year and it doesn’t leave my sight. I am sure I would have covered the entire cover with the StickerApp custom stickers by the end of the week.

I am looking forward to promoting my brand some more with these stickers. I will be sticking them on my possessions and carrying them around with me. Who knows what will happen.

You can grab your stickers on the StickerApp website (link in bio), with this 20% discount code – STYLEPOLICE, valid until 1st December 2016.
