Gifted To Me & Shared With You #1

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…

This is one of the lovely aspects of blogging and I won’t pretend otherwise.

 

 

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.

 

 

Gifted To Me & Shared With You #1 Etmore beauty products

1.Etmore Beauty

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.

 

 

Perfect for wearing in winter due to the moisturising properties of Argan Oil.

 

 

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!
  • It sits in my wrinkles.
  • So many new products to choose from, where to start?

 

The 3 Etmore products I like, use & can recommend are:

2. Daisy Jewellery

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.

      Shes a very cool and clever girl, super stylish too! x

  2. Lucky you – so many lovely things to write about. The eye shadow compact has all the right shades (for me), Not a lot of dark colours there and I like the idea of the illuminator to mix with your foundation.

    The necklace is also something that I would choose to wear. I wear a lot of statement necklace/pendants but this delicate piece is something I could wear on a more regular basis. Love it.
