    Writing Gloves from Literary Book Gifts Review

    If you have a writer in your family, there’s a good chance that when it’s Christmas or their birthday, you get them a book as a gift. That’s not a bad thing, because you know they’ll love it and treasure that gift, but what if there was something else you could get them, that showed you understand them? Well, I’ve been given the opportunity to review a pair of writing gloves and my first thought when I heard about their existence is, “How many times have I wished that these exist?” Honestly, I have. It’s true. I received a free pair to enable me to write this review, but all…

    A to Z Blogging Challenge: K is for Knee Boots

    Almost at the end of the second week and starting to schedule posts again today. There was a point this when I could easily have given up on this challenge. It doesn’t sound that difficult to people who aren’t doing it but writing a blog post every day for a month is as difficult as a diet. There’s a huge amount of stamina and discipline involved and when you have an off-day and you’re tired, you’d rather watch TV than sit in front of the laptop, blogging. It’s especially difficult when there aren’t many people engaging with the posts. That makes it feel pointless at times but I’m going to…

    A to Z Blogging Challenge: F is for Four Feet Ten

    Ah, I made it to the end of the first week of the challenge! And what’s more, I had all of these posts scheduled. I actually wrote this one in March, so I feel really pleased with myself for being so organised. First, I suppose I should wish you a happy weekend. Secondly, I should thank you for sticking with me thus far. And finally, here’s my sixth A to Z Blogging Challenge Post. F is for Four Feet Ten. That might sound like it doesn’t fit with the wish list theme, but bear with me please. It does. Four Feet Ten would be the name of my petite fashion…

    5 Totally Legal (But Morally Questionable) Ways To Make Money Online

    Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. If you click on the links and make a purchase, I will receive a small amount of commission. Firstly, thanks for visiting my blog. You may have discovered it via Twitter but it’s more likely you found me either by searching for a beauty product review or using a phrase like “ways to make money online.” I’m kinda sick of that phrase taking everyone to the post about the time I tried to sell my trashed shoes to fetishists, so I’m going to lift the lid on some of the other ways to make money online. They are all totally legal (in the UK,…

    Interview With Anna Nylander – Stylist and Personal Shopper

    Like many women, I have a keen interest in fashion and clothing.  I’m probably too old to be a typical fashion blogger as what I look for in an outfit has changed over the years and I’m no longer satisfied to wear what I find on the high street.  That’s why when I was introduced to stylist and personal shopper, Anna Nylander, I jumped at the chance to interview her!  So, in true Lacey Dearie style, we took an imaginary trip to Stockholm Fashion Week (because I can’t afford to go for real) and had a chat about what it’s really like to be a stylist. Tell us a little…
