Magnitone First Step Cleansing Brush

Firstly I want to start off by saying the content of this blog post is entirely my own content, it has in no way been sponsored, gifted or paid for. I purchased the item in this post with my own money, I just wanted to share with you the LayBuy option as I thought it was a pretty good thing to spread the cost of an item if you needed to.

Being signed up to the mailing list you sometimes get the odd emails letting you know about new products that are coming out. In one of the email's that recently came through to my inbox was from the Magnitone mailing list just to let everyone know about a new payment option that had been added to there website, this being the LayBuy Payment option.

What is LayBuy?
LayBuy is basically a credit option where you can pay for your item in six affordable payments, you have to pay the first installment when placing your order and after that, they spread the rest of the amount across six weekly payments.

What I Purchased...
I was in desperate need of a new magnitone cleansing brush, as I gave my old one to my sister after I purchased one from a different brand...which just didn't live up to what it was supposed to do. So I decided to purchase the Magnitone First Step Cleansing Brush and Wipeout Cleansing Cloth which is priced at £55.

So my first initial payment when I placed my order was £9.20 which is then followed by another five weekly payments of £9.16, I have already paid my first three payments so I only have another three to go. If you are late with one of your payments, you can be charged £6 for it which is considered a late payment fee.

The only thing I would say is only use LayBuy as a payment option if you know you can afford to repay it, don't just use it because it's there and get yourself into debt...my credit limit on there is £75, so I don't know what the maximum limit or minimum limit is, but personally I am happy just to have the £75 on there in case I do decide I ever need something in the future.

Pinterest, Views, Visitors
I've always loved spending time having a little look through Pinterest, usually when I'm laying in bed of a night time and just want to find some inspiration for my blog, or things to draw. It's only been the last few weeks that I've really put an effort into arranging and organising my Pinterest and boy have I noticed a difference in my views on there!

- Board Organisation

I started off by going through all my Pinterest boards, and the ones that only had a couple of images saved I put those boards to private so I could sort those ones out last and focus on the boards that had the most content in. I decided I wanted the overall look of my Pinterest to be quiet clean, so that when someone visited my profile they weren't shoved into a world of colourful pictures straight away, now don't get me wrong I've still got some sorting out to do but I am loving the way it is all starting to look now.


- Daily Activity
If there's one thing I have learned through improving my Pinterest account, and that is being active on a daily basis. I started off by making sure I re-pinned at least 20 images a day, but now am aiming to repin at least 5 images to each of my boards....and so far I currently have 30 boards which means I should be re-pinning at least 150 pins per day! I think the most I have managed is 50 pins in a day so I am working on it slowly.


- Sort Into Sections
I then categorise my boards and then put sections inside the boards aswell, so for instance we will take my "iPhone Wallpapers" category and when you click into that, there isn't just loads of random images. It's all separated into 6 different sections as you can see below...

As you can see all my wallpapers I have saved each have there own section, so for example if someone finds my Pinterest and wants a Disney wallpaper they only need to click on the Disney section instead of scrolling through every single image. It just makes it so much easier to find what your looking for by putting them into sections.

- Re-pin Other Pins, Not Just Your Own
Make sure your also not just re-pinning your own pins that are linked to your websites, instagram, Pinterest or any other social media, be sure to also re-pin other peoples pins aswell as this shows your happy to engage and promote their content aswell as your own. I love having a good look through other people's pins especially when it's something that I have a strong interest in, as it can really help with my writing when I'm struggling a bit and having a bit of the ol' bloggers block.

How I Grew My Pinterest Views

Monday, 11 March 2019

Let's take a quick look on back on the month of February and see what three things stood out the most for me, I like to keep these kind of posts short and not make them too long of a read for you.

One || I finally got round to buying myself a set of the Alex drawers from Ikea, I have been wanting a set of these for years now and Ikea have just opened a brand new store down the road from me in Greenwich, and I couldn't be happier about it haha. all my beauty products are now all stored in my Alex drawers instead of taking up three drawers in the set of drawers for all my clothes, so everything looks so much tidier now......although I am tempted to get myself one more set to store all my stationery bits and pieces in aswell.

Two || February was also the month of my birthday, I'm not one to really celebrate my birthday but I did end up just going up to my sisters and ordering loads of pizza hut to be delivered. I've never been one to go on a night out as I don't really drink, so my ideal night is ordering a takeaway and chilling out watching something good on the tv...or netflix. My go to show to watch on Netflix at the moment is "Minute To Win It", it's like the UK version of The Cube and there is only 1 season and I've nearly finished watching it already.

Three || Lastly in the month of February I got to work with two brands on my blog, with one of them ending with four competitions. The first brand I got to work with was Sinivalia and Blended Valley (blog post) on some skincare and aromatherapy products, two of the products have all ready gone to two of the competition winners and the other two I haven't heard back from the winners yet. The second brand I got to work with was Prestige Flowers (blog post), who gifted me a flower bouquet from there Mothers Day range. I can say these flowers are still going strong and looking just as beautiful as when I first received them.
