Juicy Couture 'Viva La Juicy Rosé' Perfume Unboxing!


Hello, my loves! Today, I am very excited to be bringing you a brand new unboxing and first impressions post. We will be talking about the gorgeous Viva La Juicy Rosé by Juicy Couture (£36 for 30ml, FeelUnique). This one was a complete blind buy for me, which isn't something I like to do very often, but I couldn't find a sample anywhere! I had no idea what to expect from this perfume, but I was completely drawn to the gorgeous, girly bottle design. Today, I will be sharing with you some of my initial thoughts on this scent. Hope you enjoy!

The Algarve Diaries! Ocean, Beaches And Dolphin Watching!


Hello there, my loves! Today, I am incredibly excited to finally talk to you about our anniversary trip to Portugal. Me and my better-half went there at the end of May to celebrate our eight years together, and it was honestly the most amazing trip we've ever had! Do you know how sometimes when you go on holiday, you enjoy your time but at the end of the day, you are somewhat happy to return home? Well, Portugal was the first place we ever went to that genuinely left me thinking 'I could live here!', and just being there made me feel so happy. We stayed in a small town called Alvor, located on the beautiful coast of the Algarve. Today, I am excited to tell you a little bit more about our trip, and share some photos - hope you enjoy!

A Fragrance Gift Guide For Men!


Hello, my loves! It feels great to be back in the blogging world. We had a wonderful time in Portugal - it is such a beautiful, welcoming country, and I will be sure to tell you all about it in a separate post! For now, I am struggling with the post-holiday blues, but I do feel excited about being able to post more regularly again. Today, I would like to talk to you a little bit about men's fragrances. We've covered quite a few different perfume recommendations here on Shoes and Glitter, but I have only ever focused on feminine scents. Today, I'd like to share with you some of my favourite masculine fragrances, which might be useful especially if you're planning to purchase a scented gift for the upcoming Father's Day! I would also like to thank today's sponsor, L'Occitane, who gave me the inspiration for this post. L'Occitane have mastered the craft of capturing natural scents not only in perfumes, but also everyday products like this lovely shaving cream, enriched with the cade essential oil. I'd wholeheartedly recommend that you check them out, loves! Hope you enjoy today's post!

Hello, my loves! Today, I am very excited to be sharing with you my spring favourites and this time, we will be talking about a lot more than just beauty products.

This year, we will relaxing on the sunny beaches of the Algarve in Portugal, and I honestly couldn't be more excited! It's going to be my first 'proper' beach holiday, so expect a lot of photos!

Why I Lost Interest In Blogging & How To Get It Back


Hello there, my beauties! It's been a little while since my last post; and if you follow me on Twitter, you might know that it's because I decided to take a short break from both blogging and social media. For anyone that's been blogging for a while, you are probably familiar with the feeling of burning out, and hitting a 'creative wall' with your content. This is something that I have been experiencing quite a lot, especially in the recent months. Blogging can be so awesome - it's a passion, a labour of love; but sometimes you get a little tired of it, and it becomes a chore. Maybe you aren't getting the traffic you want, or maybe you are struggling to come up with fresh ideas for your content (this is definitely something I am guilty of). At the same time, you don't just want to abandon it all because of all the time, energy and love that you have put into it. It can be disheartening, especially when you feel like it's all going nowhere. This is why I decided to take a little break from the virtual world, and try to figure out some ways to rekindle my love for blogging. A week of soul-searching later, and I feel a lot more positive about it all, which is what I want to talk to you about today. So, the question of the day is - how to fall in love with your blog again?

A New Modern Classic? Guerlain 'Mon Guerlain' Perfume Review + First Impressions!


Hello there, my beauties! It's been a long while since my last 'Unboxing and First Impressions' post, mostly because so far this year, I haven't actually bought a single perfume! I am quite happy with my collection as it is now, and I promised myself to only purchase a new fragrance if I really love it. Mon Guerlain is the most recent launch by one of my all-time favourite, classic designers - Guerlain. I have talked about their perfumes quite a lot in my  prettiest bottles post and  various fragrance recommendations. I was really excited for this new launch, and my wonderful boyfriend was kind enough to buy it for me as a surprise gift! Today, I will be sharing with you my honest thoughts on this fragrance. Hope you enjoy!
