I'm on Youtube! + 'Get To Know Me' tag

Hey, lovelies! I have some very exciting news for you today - I've finally started my own YouTube channel! YouTube is something that I always wanted to branch out into, but for the longest time I felt too shy, and didn't think that I'd be any good at it. I'm still very nervous about publishing my first video (I'm really not used to being on camera!), but I'm also excited and happy to have finally given it a shot. Today is just a little introduction video, combined with a 'Get To Know Me' tag, which I thought would be a fun way to start. Hope you enjoy!

5 types of posts that get the most views!

Hey, jelly beans! I hope you're all having a beautiful week so far. Today, I'm going to share with you a few post ideas that, in my experience, attract the most readers. As a disclaimer, I don't believe in posting things solely to get traffic - at the end of the day, you should always blog about the topics that you're truly passionate about (whether they are popular, or not). Having said that, it can be difficult to attract new readers and get people to visit your blog, especially if you're just starting out. It could be useful to know what kind of content is likely to be popular, which is what inspired my idea for this post. I hope you find these helpful!

Makeup products I regret buying!

Hey, jelly beans! Today, we're going to talk a little bit about some of the most disappointing makeup products that I've purchased in the past year. Of course, this is all just my personal opinion and I don't mean to put you off trying these products for yourself (except for a couple, which are just outright flops and I honestly wouldn't recommend them to anyone!). We all have different tastes, and what doesn't work for one person may work for another. Still, I thought it would be fun to venture to the back of my makeup drawer and re-discover some of my biggest shopping fails. Hope you enjoy!

Victoria's Secret beauty mini haul + why I will never buy VS makeup again!

Hey, beauties! First of all, I'd like to thank you for all the love and support on my last post, where I talked about my eating disorder and going vegan. It wasn't easy opening up about something so personal, but I'm glad I've decided to share my story. Reading your lovely comments has helped so much, and I'm very grateful for all the kind words! Today, we're going to talk a little bit about one of my favourite brands ever - Victoria's Secret. If you've been visiting Shoes and Glitter for a while, you've probably noticed my obsession with their gorgeous, comfortable clothes, perfumes and accessories. Recently, I went on a little shopping spree and picked up a few things from their beauty department, so I thought that it'd be fun to do a little 'shop and tell'. Hope you enjoy!

My vegan journey. One month's progress + my eating disorder.

Hello, my lovelies! Today's post is going to be different and very personal - something I don't do often. Some of you may have noticed my recent tweets, where I've talked about changing my lifestyle and switching to a vegan diet. This was a very drastic change for me, and today, I'd like to talk a little more about it and share my progress with you all. As a disclaimer, this post is not going to be some kind of vegan propaganda where I try and convince you to switch to this lifestyle. We all make our own choices, and I think it's great that we live in a society where we actually have the freedom to do so. This post is more about sharing my own experience with veganism, and also my eating disorder - something that's extremely personal and difficult to talk about, but also a big part of my life. I hope that perhaps some of you may relate to this in some way, or find it helpful if you're thinking about switching to a vegan diet. Hope you enjoy!
