Follow

Follow them on social media. Simple! Lots of companies that bloggers work with look at how many followers you have so there is power in those numbers. Most bloggers have profiles across all social media platforms so you have lots of options! **Shameless Plug** Follow me: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Pinterest | YouTube | Bloglovin | Google +

Share

If you like a post and think your friends would like it too, by all means share it! By sharing, you help get a blogger’s post in front of more eyes and boost our pageviews which companies also look at when finding bloggers to work with. The more people who are seeing our stuff, the more a company will want to work with us! Higher numbers = better opportunities!

Comment

Sometimes blogging can be a lonely place. Especially if you feel like no one is reading what you have to say and you’re pretty much just talking to yourself! If you have something to add to what a post is saying, if you can relate to it, or even have another view on the subject, leave a comment! Conversations are great and it’s how we get to know each other.

Sponsor

This one applies more to other bloggers or business owners, but you can also “sponsor” a blogger by purchasing ad space where they have it available on their blog. Many bloggers offer different services or perks to sponsors so that the exchange is mutually beneficial. Prices can vary greatly depending on the blog and services offer but most bloggers are more than happy to work with you and come up with a deal just for you! **Shameless Plus 2** Here is what my “sponsor” page looks like.

Fibralogy by L’Oreal Review from Influenster

I was selected for another great program from Influenster and this time it was to review a hair care line from L’Oreal called Fibralogy. Fibralogy uses an innovative molecule called filloxane to thicken the hair fibre and increase it’s diameter from within. Science! This line claims to make your hair thicker and more voluptuous which is something I could really use right now with my already fine hair falling out since Alex was born!

Fibralogy by L'Oreal Review from Influenster | HappyPrettyBlog.Com | #hair #FibralogyWorks

I was sent 3 of the 4 products in the line (Fibralogy Shampoo, Conditioner and Booster) and have been testing them for the past 3 weeks. The forth product in the line is a deep conditioner which I have not tried. After just a few uses, I did begin to notice a change in the way my hair feels and responds when I am styling it. It feels very soft and strong and like it has a bit more body and oomph! Since I have fine hair, it usually doesn’t stay put when I try to style it in any way but with this little added thickness, I did find it easier to manipulate and I found it stayed in place longer than usual. Of course, it’s not a miracle and didn’t change my hair completely, but it certainly helped.

**I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.** 

New Glasses from SelectSpecs

If you’re a serious creeper (I know you’re not, don’t worry) you may have noticed the lovely new glasses that I’ve been sporting in my most recent videos! Allow me to refresh your memory.

Glasses from SelectSpecs | HappyPrettyBlog.Com

When I was asked if I wanted some new glasses, I jumped at the chance because I was in dire need of a new pair. I have ordered glasses online a few times before, so I was happy to try out a new company to buy from. 

Browsing SelectSpecs is very simple and everything that you’re looking for can be found at the click of your mouse. The website is easy to navigate and the selection of glasses, contact lenses, and accessories (they even have prescription swimming goggles) is huge! You can browse by price, colour, frame size, and even brand to find the perfect fit for your face and your style. There truly is something for everyone! 

Once you select your frames you have a variety of lens choices and you put in your prescription. The checkout process is very easy and there are the standard payment options to choose from. The most difficult part is choosing which pair you want but the prices are so good that you might be so inclined to pick 2 or 3 pairs!

When I received my glasses in the mail a short time later I was very impressed by their quality, even though I had only chosen a pair of simple, economy frames. They also come with a dust bag and hard plastic case. 

I was extremely happy with my entire experience shopping, ordering and wearing my SelectSpecs glasses and I’d gladly shop there again when I’m in need of another pair. 

Disclaimer: I received these glasses for free from SelectSpecs in exchange for this honest review. I uphold the same honesty and integrity whether I am reviewing a product for payment of not. All opinions are strictly my own.

 

Top 5 Accessories Which Will Help Organize Your Home

Trying to organise your home? With Spring cleaning season just around the corner, the right accessories will help you organize nearly any space in your home.

1. Collapsible bins

Storage bins are a must. From filing paper in the office, to storing the kids’ toys, they will let you throw everything in, and eliminate the mess from any room. They can be placed on shelves, at the foot of the bed, or below a desk. Not only will they allow you to place items which are thrown around the room in one single space, they can also collapse to take up less space if you are limited in closet space.

2. Storage drawers

Wicker storage drawers are great in a bathroom or kitchen. Not only do they look good, they will easily store toilet paper, extra towels, or other items which are thrown around any space. They work well in the kids room as well to put toys away, or if the office to store supplies or paper. These drawers conceal the mess in a cute way, go well with nearly any decor, and there are several different sized options you can choose from, depending on how much storage space you need. You can also look at buying a new bed with drawers built in. Some sofas have this feature too!
However, buying a new bed or sofa purely for storage purposes is a bit much. But next time you need a new one then it’s something you might want to consider. Online catalogues like Home Essentials are a great place to start with this as they offer lots of spread the cost options so buying a bed or sofa on finance is easy.

3. Bag dispenser

Do you have grocery bags thrown everywhere in the home? Most people use them for trash bins in the kitchen or bathroom space; with this said, most people don’t have a place to store them. A stainless steel dispenser is not only classy and elegant, but will help you keep all bags in one place. It fits nicely in the pantry or a closet, it’s easy to use, plus the sleek design will really pop in any room of the home.

4. Shoe wheel

This classy twist on the over the door shoe organizer is not only cute, but also allows you to store your shoes in a single space, rather than thrown all over the rooms in the home. The wheel spins easily so you can see all pairs of shoes you own, allowing you to find the perfect pair for any outfit. Plus, the spinning system is small and won’t take up too much room in the closet if you are limited with space.

5. Acrylics

Acrylic storage drawers are excellent. Store paper clips in the office, sticky notes, pens, and other items on your desk. In the bathroom you can store your makeup, your hair accessories, brushes and combs. In the kitchen you can store away smaller snacks, or items you don’t use regularly. The acrylic storage system is clean, sleek, clear (so you can see what’s in it), and there are various sizes, so you can find a system for any location in the home you need it in.

There are many accessories you can use to organize and keep your home in order, these are a few which will work in nearly any room, and any sized home, even if you have limited space to work with.
