Celeb Style: Halloween!


HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

We thought we'd theme this weeks 'celebrity style' post around Halloween and look back at some of the fun fancy dress outfits celebrities have used in the past. We particularly love celebrity couples stepping out to celebrate Halloween dressed up and think Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon looked great in their milk & cookies get up!

Have you been to any fancy dress parties this week? What did you dress up as? We'd love to see any blog posts you've created around this weeks spooky theme.

The Watch Hut offer Casio samples!

A new brand has launched on the etailPR blogger network today called The Watch Hut. They are offering bloggers a silver digital Casio watch in exchange for a brand mention.


(Open to UK bloggers only) 

If you'd love to receive a Casio watch for your blog you need to have one of these two criteria...
  • You must ensure that the Page Rank of your site is above 3 
  • Or that the Domain Authority of your site is above 30. 
To check whether your site meets these criteria please click here and add your URL. The image below shows the sections you need to refer to, to find your Page Rank and Domain Authority:


If your site meets these requirements, then please sign in to your Blogger Network account (or sign up here), then apply for the campaign under 'Promotion' > 'Campaigns' and a member of the etailPR team will be in touch to arrange your post!
etailPR will allocate you a specific link to the site, so please don't create your post before it has been arranged with the etailPR team. 

The content of the post is completely flexible, we just need you to use your specific link through to the site. So you could create a wishlist from The Watch Hut website with other items and brands, mention it in one of your outfit posts, or create a whole post based around the site and products - it's down to you!

Please note, etailPR will also be checking the Page Rank and Domain Authority of your site so you will only be contacted when it has been confirmed that your site meets the criteria needed. 

Please only apply to the campaign if your site meets one of the criteria listed above. 

-----------------------------------------

What is Page Rank?
Page Rank measures the importance of a website (in the eyes of Google). It contributes to where your site is placed in Google search results. The higher the Page Rank number (between 0 and 10), the more importance Google gives to your site - meaning that it will rank higher in it's searches.  

What is Domain Authority?
Domain Authority measures the power of a site's domain, in regards to the age, popularity and size of the site. Again a higher Domain Authority (between 0 and 100), means that a site is more likely to be listed higher in Google's search results.

Melted cheese and carmelised onion toastie!


If you've been following our blog or our Pinterest account for a while you will probably know that we are rather obsessed with food! Our Pinterest 'Food Glorious Food' board is the most updated board we have and there are so many delicious recipes to find on Pinterest.

Just like this grilled cheese and caramelised onion toastie! The words grilled, cheese and caramelised alone are bound to equal a very tasty treat.

The source behind this toastie goodness is Joanna Goodard from 'A Cup of Jo'. With her simple ingredients and step by step guide, this recipe is super easy to replicate! Which we all intend doing this weekend.

You can find Joanna's recipe here. Happy toasting! :)

Paisley nail art!


Caroline from www.burkatron.com is often a favourite blog of ours in the office for her beautiful outfit posts, impressive nail art tutorials and creative DIY posts.

Her nail art always inspires us to be more imaginative with our own nails. This paisley pattern that she blogged about here is one of our recent favourites. Paisley print is very popular at the moment in fashion and we've seen some gorgeous items crop up on your blogs over the past couple of months. What better than to match your paisley patterned garments with some paisley print nails! I'm not sure we've got the steady hand for such an intricate design but we're going to give it ago :)

If you've got any cool nail art tutorials recently we'd love to see them. Leave your links below!

Celeb Style: Miranda Kerr



Today's Celebrity Style post focuses on the beautiful Miranda Kerr who was spotted at Paris Fashion Week wearing this cute tartan jacket and gorgeous Chanel black quilted bag.

Whilst we can't replicate the Chanel bag, we've tried to replicate the rest of the outfit with this Lashes of London sheer blouse, Ax Paris leather shorts, Fashion Union pointed toe ankle boots and two tartan jacket choices from FD Avenue.
Personally we love this structured coat in a mix of camel, navy and red. However if you prefer the shorter jacket option like Miranda, FD Avenue also stock this classic tartan jacket with zip detailing.

Are you a fan of Miranda? If you've been following any of PFW who's caught your style eye?

Wednesday wish list: Leather!



Today's Wednesday wish list post brings together a mix of our favourite 'leather' items from across our brands. The leather look trend is already big this season and will continue to grow throughout winter. We particularly love this Little Mistress dress which features accents of leather mixed with a cute white material, fuelling the monochrome trend too.

In Love With Fashion have a number of cute satchels and bags in a range of colours. You might not know that Love sell accessories, they also sell shoes too. Every year this red/burgundy colours is always very popular and this satchel would make the perfect accessory for any outfit.

Are you a fan of the current leather trend? What key pieces have you been purchasing?
