December Advertisers & A Happy New Year!

Image: weheartit (edited by me)

Hi everyone! I can't quite believe its New Year's Eve and the final day of 2013. Where the heck has this year gone? I feel like its passed me by in the blink of an eye and although I've had my ups and downs this year, I'd say its been a good one overall. I was thinking of doing a look back over my year or perhaps a new years resolutions type post if that's something you'd be interested in seeing? One of my highlights of the past year has definitely been blogging and all the wonderful people I've met through it, including the fab girls and even guys who've been advertising with me this past twelve months! 

I started offering advertising in October 2012 and I never imagined anyone would be interested in it to be honest but its been a great success and I've had some great feedback. Its so nice to receive emails from fellow bloggers telling me they've gained more views or followers from the exposure they've received here on my blog. Its also been so lovely to get to know more bloggers as I always follow the blogs that advertise with me and more often than not they become some of my daily reads! I hope you all enjoy finding new blogs to read each month too and with that being said, here's the fab bunch of bloggers who've been advertising with me for the past month, and the final advertisers of December. I hope you love discovering their blogs as much as I did ...

Hi everyone, I’m Carly and I blog at I set up my blog a couple of years after I gave up my beauty salon to pursue a different career. I had been in the beauty industry for 15 years and wanted to continue to share my knowledge and help people. My friend suggested that I write a blog and I’m so glad that I did.

At Carly’s Beauty World you will find that amongst the product reviews and fun posts, I also write about and specialise in specific areas such as skincare and other beauty related topics. If you want to diagnose your skin type or learn how to choose skincare products you can come to my blog and find the advice you need easily.

I’m always chatting to people on my various social media sites so come and say hi. I look forward to meeting you all. I’m having a giveaway to win a Cath Kidston Rose Boquet Washbag just like the one Kayleigh has (see here) so don’t forget to enter when you visit my blog.

Happy New Year.

Website - Yuko

YUKO Permanent Hair Straightening was created in Japan in 1996 by Yuko Yamashita, a passionate hair stylist and salon owner who, after witnessing as a child the happiness a haircut gave her mother and sister,decided to make other people just as happy by dedicating her life to hairdressing. Throughout her years as a stylist, Yuko was shocked to discover that only 5 out of every 100 people were happy with their hair and a staggering 75% were concerned because their curly, unruly, sleek or thick hair was not to their satisfaction. In just the same way that most people are unhappy with their bodies and would change something if they could, Yuko committed her passion to find a solution; a way of giving people the opportunity to have the hair they desired. In pursuit of this, Yuko began a project with Japanese health, sports and beauty giant Phiten to develop her own perm solution, alongside having developed a successful solution, YUKO now also has a successful and comprehensive homecare range suited to treat all hair types.

Annie from Epiphanniea

Not to sure the best way to describe myself but if I went by the descriptions others give me, then I’m a ‘headstrong, nutter with a short attention span'.

Naomi from Naomi Gabriella

Hi, I'm Naomi and I blog over at NaomiGabriella where I share my interests of beauty, clothes, food and lounging around doing very little. I'm on my gap year and balancing blogging with trying to figure out what I'm doing with my life, and sharing that journey along the way. I love reading blogs so I thought I'd give it a go myself and see if anyone out there wanted to read my weird writings.

Come and say hi, I'd love to hear from you! Who knows, maybe we'll find something we have in common ;)

  7. A review of Jamorama would be incomplete with out taking into account the personality behind it. A really good a great number products are around produced by egg heads with out soul or experience. Ben Edwards gained a Bachelor of Training ahead of becoming a member of the DegreesK band. His passion has been for teaching, especially guitar. The foregoing was his inspiration for creating Jamorama; The so called Final Lead Guitar and Soloing kit, and now Jamorama Lead Guitar. We have decided to observe up this design (Ben Edwards creation) using an sincere examine of Jamorama.
