Hayley - Strangeness & Charm 

I started Strangeness & Charm at the end of 2010, as a distraction from my uni work. I didn't think I would keep up with it and it would end up being forgotten about but almost four years later, I'm still writing it! What started off as a hobby has now become an important part of my life and I've met some amazing people through blogging from all over the country.

One of my favourite products this month has been the Makeup Revolution I <3 Chocolate eye shadow palette. For something that costs so little (£8!), it's surprising how brilliant the quality is and you can do a hell of a lot of looks with it! I've been reaching for it everyday, whether its for work or for my friend's wedding and I'll be using it so much over the autumn/winter too. 
          Dream. Love. Live. Fashion ♥

Eleanor - Dream Love Live Fashion 

I am a 19 year old fashion and beauty blogger based in Durham and Leeds, and I am also a marketing student at university. My blog is mainly fashion based and features personal style, although I also do regular beauty and lifestyle posts! A product I'm loving this month is Pantene Pro V dry oil with Argan oil, I'd never tried Argan oil but it has transformed my frizzy hair it's amazing and totally lives up to the 


Emily - Drained Beauty

I never wore make up til I was nearly 19 and started going out, I found a love for it and putting together a whole outfit from just finding one piece. It helped make me feel more confident and I love making different looks. I started a blog to share my ideas and passion for lifestyle, beauty and fashion. The blogging community are so friendly and supportive and helped me keep motivated to blog, I now am a lipstick hoarder, Instagram addict and I love spending my spare time reading through everyone else's blogs, thoughts and ideas. I have been loving the Elizabeth Arden flawless finish foundation this month, paired with my real techniques buffing brush. My skin has been breaking out a lot, so this has been a life saver with the amazing coverage I need. 


Laura - Laura Emie

My name is Laura and I'm 24 years old, I live on the boarder of North shropshire and Wales with my partner and our four year old son. I have finished a degree in education this year which was a huge challenge but well worth doing. I am currently working as a Mentor in a high school. I love animals and currently have 2 rabbits, 2 guinea pigs and 2 clownfish!
I see my blog as somewhere I can show my creative side and share all parts of my life with you. So as well as being a place to share new beauty finds like my Zoeva brushes, I have posted about decorating our spare room and getting my G-plan dressing table- which I am very please with! I hope to do some more lifestlye type posts soon and share with you what we get up to. Our son is staring school soon which will be a huge new chapter so I will be sharing my feelings on that. 
I am also working on bringing out a small range of sweatshirts and t-shirts with my own designs on, this will take me sometime but I want them to be perfect before I put them out there. I'm really excited to be designing them and I can't wait to show them to you all! I just hope you'll like them, haha! 
Choosing a favourite product this month is tricky, I am loving quite a few beauty products as well as the Zoeva brushes, but as I have written a blog post on those I went with a hair product. I always have battles with my hair, it will look nice the first half a day after it's been washed then it will go frizzy and it just won't grow past a certain point before I get split ends. So I went to Boots in search of a miracle! I came home with Lee Stafford shampoo, conditioner and 'Hair Growth, leave in conditioner' - they were £12 all together as they were on offer. I knew Lee Stafford shampoo and conditioner were lovely to use and smelt amazing but some how I had forgotten how good they are. They make my hair behave and really smooth it down. I have a sentive scalp and sometimes product can irritate it and in turn make my hair look dull, so to have a lovely shampoo and conditioner that works with my hair and scalp is great. The 'hair growth leave in treatment' is easy to use as I just spray it on to my scalp when my hair is towel dried and brush through. I then blow dry it and it does exactly what it promises! My hair feels healthier already just after using it for 2 weeks. The best thing about this product is that it has helped my scalp recover, so hopefully my hair will grow longer soon! I just can't get enought of the smell!
