Take A Walk On The Dark Side... Kat Von D 'Sinner' Perfume Review!

Hello there, my loves! Today, I am very excited to be bringing you a very special perfume review. It's been a little while since I've done one of those, as, to be honest - I just haven't been buying as many fragrances lately. I am quite happy with my perfume collection as it is now, so whenever I buy a new scent, it's because I really love it (review spoiler alert!). I've always heard such amazing things about the Kat Von D brand, but I've actually never tried any of her makeup. Her fragrances have also always been very popular, and this one - Sinner - is actually a re-launch of an older version from 2009. Today, I am very excited to share with you loves my honest thoughts on this scent. Hope you enjoy!

Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Blogging

Hello, my loves! I hope that you're all having a wonderful week so far. Today, I wanted to share with you a few bits of blogging wisdom. I've been thinking more and more about my blog lately, about what I want to achieve with it, and how I can improve my content. In thinking that, I've also been looking back at the last three years (I can't believe it's been this long since I started my blog, time flies by!). Today, I'd like to share with you a few things I've learned throughout my online journey, and also those things that I wish I knew before I first started Shoes and Glitter. Of course, I am by no means a blogging expert, and still have lots to learn - these are just a few bits I've picked up that I wanted to share with you, loves. Hope you enjoy!

Cleansing Oils For Oily Skin? Re:cipe Rose Petal Cleansing Oil Review!

Hello, my loves! Today, I am excited to be bringing you a review of the Re:cipe rose petal cleansing oil (£23, Feelunique). This was actually my first time using oil as a cleanser – it always felt quite counter-intuitive for me to do so, especially since my skin is already very oily. However, after reading lots of positive reviews from fellow bloggers, I decided to give it a shot. Of course, I am by no means a skincare expert, but I wanted to share with you my experience with this Korean oil cleanser (not sponsored, by the way!) – it was definitely an unexpected one! Hope you enjoy. x

A Look Inside My Kikki K Time Planner + Review!

Hello there, my jelly beans! I hope that you're all having a wonderful week. I've mentioned my love for cute stationery quite a few times on the blog by now, and today's post is all about that. I feel that in this day and age where everything is so digitalised, the art of handwriting and printed media in general are becoming less and less relevant; and that makes me feel a little sad! I think that there is just something so relaxing and enjoyable about putting pen to paper. Today, I want to give you loves a little sneak peek into my favourite planner that I've been using this year - the Kikki K time planner from their Cute collection (not sponsored, by the way - I wish!); and give you a little review of it in case you're interested in getting one. I got sucked into buying one of these following all the positive reviews on YouTube, and today, I'm excited to share my thoughts on it. Hope you enjoy!

What's In My Travel Makeup Bag?

Hello, my loves. Today, I wanted to share with you some of my favourite travel makeup picks. I love travelling more than anything else in the world, but it's always a challenge to fit everything you might need into one small bag (I'd happily take my entire makeup collection if I could!). When it comes to travelling, I only ever rely on my favourite, tried and tested products that I know won't disappoint. I am actually slowly preparing to travel now, as me and my better-half will soon be spending two weeks in the Canary Islands for our 9 years (!) anniversary. Hope you enjoy today's picks!

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!
