What's Really Going On... An Honest Life Update

Hello, my lovelies. Today's post is a little life update, as I haven't been very active in the blogging world lately, and I just wanted to update you all as to why that is. This whole thing is going to be quite difficult to talk about, so please bare with me - I am feeling quite emotional and anxious as I am typing this. Normal posts will resume next week, so if you want to skip this very personal post, please stay tuned as I will be sharing more regular beauty content in the next few days. Now, onto the life update...

100 Beauty Blog Post Ideas!

Hello, my darlings! Today, I would like to share with you some beauty blog post ideas that will hopefully help you out if you ever happen to hit a creative block. I think that it's only natural to feel a lack of inspiration from time to time, especially if you've been blogging for a while. Whenever I feel creative, I like to write down any blog post ideas that come to mind in a little notebook, and use them later on. There is an endless amount of things that you can talk about as a beauty blogger, so I've compiled a list of some of my go-to ideas. This includes everything from makeup, skincare to lifestyle post ideas - I really hope that you find them useful!

Tips For Taking Blog Photos With Your iPhone

Hello, darlings! Today, I would like to share with you a few tips on how to make the most of your blog photos, using only your phone as a camera. Photos are a huge part of any blogging process, and attractive, eye-catching images can add invaluable richness to your blog content. Furthermore, you don't need expensive, professional equipment to take quality pictures - your phone camera is more than enough! I've always used my phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 in the past, and now the iPhone 7) for blog photos, and whilst I am by no means an expert and still have a lot to learn, I'd like to share with you some of my go-to tips and tricks for achieving quality blog photos.

Girly Gaming // My Favourite Games Of 2017!

Hello, loves! Today's post is going to be a little different, and I'm very excited for it. A while back, I mentioned that I wanted to experiment with my content a little, and talk about things that are not only beauty-related. One of the things I really enjoy - but don't ever really mention on my blog - is gaming. I'm actually a huge nerd and always have been, but I would always assume that talking about games wouldn't really fit in with the overall 'beauty' theme of Shoes and Glitter. Still, I am excited to try something new, and if you lovelies enjoy it as well, it might turn into a proper blog series. Today, I will be sharing with you some of my favourite, addictive games that I loved playing in 2017. Fair warning - excessive geekery is about to commence!

Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Sugar Glow Kit' Review + Win Your Own! International Giveaway

Hello there, my loves! I hope you're all having a wonderful week. Today, I am very excited to be bringing you a review of the Sugar Glow Kit highlighter palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills (£41, Feelunique). If you have been visiting my blog for a while, you might know that I always used to be a little hesitant towards using highlighters. I've always loved the glowy look, but, as you can probably guess, excessively oily skin tends to disagree with any kind of highlight. Still, I enjoy a little glow with a good matte foundation from time to time; and lately I have been exploring more high-end options. I've recently splurged on one of the ABH limited edition Glow Kits, and today, we're going to talk about it in a little more detail. There is also a little giveaway for you at the end of this post, where you can enter to win an Anastasia Beverly Hills Sugar Glow Kit palette of your own!

Winter Perfume Recommendations 2017!

Hello my lovelies, and happy new year! It's been a short while since my last post, as I took a little break from blogging and social media over Christmas. I was lucky enough to have the entire Christmas week off (for the first time ever since starting my job!), and I've been trying to get back into the swing of things, including everything blogging-related. Today, I am very excited to be bringing you the very first post of 2018, which is all about the best perfumes to wear this winter. I think that winter is the perfect time of year to enjoy fragrances that are quite dark, intense and sweet. My favourite winter perfume notes include earthy patchouli, caramel, marshmallow and iris; all of which will feature in today's list. Hope you enjoy!

The Cutest Unboxing Ever With The Kawaii Box + Giveaway!

Hello there, jelly beans! Today, I am excited to be bringing you a very special unboxing. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you might know that I don't typically sign up for subscription boxes (at least those ones that include beauty products), as I've had far too many hit-and-miss experiences in the past. However, when I came across the Kawaii Box, I simply could not resist and had to try it out. Funnily enough, as I was browsing their website, my boyfriend who was sitting next to me said 'Wow, you need to get this. This box is totally you!'. Well, he wasn't wrong! I absolutely love all things cute and girly, and I have not seen a similar subscription box here in the UK. So today, I am teaming up with the Kawaii Box to bring you the cutest unboxing ever. There is also a little giveaway at the end of this post, so be sure to enter it if you'd like to get your hands on one of these beauties!
