As a blogger with a five years experience behind me I am gifted products to review on a weekly basis. This is one of the lovely aspects of blogging and I won’t pretend otherwise. However I want you to know that I only accept gifts (or sponsored posts) that not only fit with my lifestyle ethos but also with my blog standards and topics. Products I would actually buy or wear myself or gift to my family and friends. Rest assured I do frequently turn down gifts, or sponsored posts, that I feel are not right for me or Lazy daisy Jones! I aim to keep Lazy daisy Jones authentic for you…

Gifted to me:
With this in mind I would like to share a couple of my recent gifts with you that I love and will use and wear on a regular basis. Makeup and a lovely piece of contemporary jewellery.
100% Cruelty Free:
A few weeks ago I was sent a box of makeup from Etmore Beauty. These are my favourites and I would like to share with you. By the way dont be put off by the pictures of very young girls wearing heaps of makeup on the website! The 3 products I’ve chosen are perfect for us grown up girls too…
Etmore products are inexpensive and contain argan oil a natural oil I have come to love, I use it on my hair before washing.
Argan oil is a plant oil extracted from the kernels of the Argan tree.Is packed with antioxidants, protecting the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Is rich in vitamin E, vitamin A and unsaturated fatty acids that soften and hydrate skin.

As I age the less makeup I wear. There are 3 reasons for this:
- At 55 I am more confident to go ‘bare’ & I frequently do!

How could I resist a gift from a jewellery brand called Daisy ? Talk about a perfect fit for my blog, to add to my excitement, I was gifted a piece from the beautiful new Estée Lalonde collection. I had previously been reading about the Daisy Jewellery collaboration with Estée and was eagerly awaiting the launch, I was not disappointed.

Who Is Estée Lalonde?
If you are a fan of Vloggers or are a Vlogger yourself you will already know of Estée . I dont watch Vlogs but I do admire women who have their own unique style and dont copy others. Ms Lalonde has heaps of that! I even have
