6 simple ways to increase your Pinterest reach

6 simple ways to increase your Pinterest reach

Over the last couple of months, I have been constantly bookmarking, researching and saving posts I've seen talking all about how Pinterest is such an important method of social media for blogging. For many, it is one of their top referrals for traffic so I decided this was something I really wanted to work on and see if it could make a difference for me too. To my absolute surprise, since implementing a few things my Pinterest reach has increased from under 1k to 32.8k in just under two weeks.

I shared this on Twitter and got such an unexpectedly huge response, so today I thought I would share with you all 6 simple ways to help increase your own Pinterest reach. As you can see below, 1 day later my Pinterest reach increased even more to 38.2k.

An introduction to Malée

Malee review

Malée is a brand I hadn't actually heard of until quite recently when I was given the opportunity to try a few of their products. Having a look at all their products and the gorgeous packaging I fell in love immediately, and couldn't wait to give the products a try.

Malée is a brand inspired by "the rich landscapes, alluring scents and ancient wisdom of Africa." All of their products are created as luxury products that consist of 100% natural active ingredients, and the formulas of all of their products are also scientifically proven to heal, protect and pamper your skin.

High-end beauty picks worth the splurge

High-end beauty picks worth the splurge

High-end makeup is something I didn't use to have very much of at all, but over the past few years I have started to pick up a few bits and I now own quite a few high-end products. When I am purchasing a more expensive makeup item I want it to work and tend to read a lot of reviews before purchasing, to try to avoid wasting my money. Obviously there a few products that don't live up to my expectations but today I thought I would share with you some high-end beauty picks that I think are totally worth the splurge.

As much as I am a Summers girl and desperately hoping for more sun, the evenings are starting to get darker and we are getting ever closer to Autumn. On the upside, this means lots of crispy leaves fallen from trees, fresh Autumn air and cosy evenings.

Vospers, Woolston Southampton review.

vospers woolston southampton

Since the opening of West Quay South in Southampton we have had so much choice for food from multiple restaurants, but there have also been quite a few restaurants opening outside of the city centre too. A recent addition is Vospers, which is based in the Centenary Plaza, a restaurant brought to you by the founders of Mettricks.

A group of us were lucky enough to be invited down last month for a complimentary meal and cocktail masterclass.
