Little updates and guest posting opportunity

It's been a few weeks since my last 'little updates' post.  Mainly because I've been ill with the flu and not doing very much.  I've not felt so ill in a very long time - I didn't leave the house or wear makeup for 5 days!  Luckily I had some draft posts done which I could schedule when I wasn't feeling up to doing any blogging.

I'm feeling much better now although I still have an annoying cough and cold and being unwell has really dried out my skin and given it a nasty rough texture which I'm battling with various products.

Here's what I was getting up to before I was struck by germs, and just after.

Noms Choosing what to have at Ask
Hooray for sunshine and big ass sunglasses! Loving this new purchase

1 & 2 - having lunch alfresco with the boyf at Ask
3 - wearing massive sunglasses as the sun has come back this weekend!
4 - my first, and definitely not my last Revlon chubby (or Just Bitten lip stain as they're properly known)

Guest posters wanted!  

I'm going on holiday in September and would love to have some of you to guest post for me while I'm away.  I'd love to see posts on anything beauty and fashion related, or some DIYs or recipes too.  My only requirements are that you need to provide clear images to go with your post which look okay when displayed as the 'extra large' size on blogger, and that your post is with me by Friday, 17 August so that I have time to get them all scheduled and write intros.  

Please drop me an email to fluttersparkle@gmail.com if you're interested in guest posting, and tell me what your post would be about.  All guest posters will be introduced by me, with a link back to your blog at the top and the bottom of your post, so some of my lovely readers may well pop over to have a nosey of your blog too :)  

That's all for now - I'm now off outside going to enjoy the little bit of Summer which seems to have appeared today.  Have a fab weekend everyone x



  1. Great instagram pics, I love your nails!

    Rose x

  2. I love the Revlon chubby shade you bought, best name for them, i can never be bothered to type out the whole thing!
    Ive bought a couple and love the formula of them so much x

    1. Me too - I picked up a second one right away! xx

  3. I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better now, sounds like you've been having a rough time of it. I love soup when I'm ill, that and lucozade! x

    1. Thanks Leanne - I'm a Lucozade fan too, but it's loaded with calories. I flushed the germs with Ribena instead! xx

  4. Loving the pictures! Your nails look great!! :)



Let me know what you think, and feel free to leave your blog link! I really appreciate every comment and always reply to questions x
