How To Contact Brands/PR's For Samples For Your Blog

How to get beauty pr samples


Okay, my head is still spinning thinking about it's been over a year (almost going to be two years), since I started blogging. As much scared and confused I was about starting a blog, and how will I tell my family and friends, maybe they will make fun of me, maybe they will think what a waste of time. Will anyone read my blog, and will there be any negativity associated with it? While in the midst of all the wondering, fearing and typing and putting myself out into the internet world, I started having fun, meeting new bloggers and discovering new blogs became a happy hours job.

And in a blink of an eye a year passed, with lots of learning and so I thought I'd share with you today, how to reach brands/ PR's as a blogger.

Summer To Fall Make-up Transition Products

Fall transition makeup guide

Even though summer is almost over, there are days when its burning hot and there are days when you feel like it's going to be a long wait until we reunite with summer again. 

But those early morning breeze have been welcoming fall and all I really want to do is switch up  my makeup from bright summer lipsticks to pretty berry lip products. Even though switching up the makeup routine entirely is still not such a great idea, as the weather does tend to get overwhelmingly warm, and you don't want to look like a burning hot mess with all your burgundy, warm eye shadows, melting off your face. But that being said there are few beauty bits and bobs that are a good in between transitional products.

Say Hello To ArtDetour



For a very long time now, I have been fiddling with the thought of changing my etsy store name and bring it under the same blog name, yet a bit branched out version of the it, just to bring everything under one brand. If that makes sense?  And after reading a couple of articles whether the store name would affect my etsy sales, I finally managed to change the store name and from VGC (VelvetGraceCreations) its now Artdetour. 

Also, I have ventured out from digital prints and blogger template designing to handmade greeting cards and gift card holders. Even though I haven't listed many handmade items yet, but here are some things from the store that I'm quite excited to share with you guys.
