Gladiator sandals

There are so many incredible things about blogging, but for me, the best thing will always be that I get to write whatever I want, whenever I want about whatever I want. (Just so we’re clear, I am not being sponsored to overuse the word “want” as much as humanly possible) It’s very closely followed by the photography aspect, the meeting other bloggers, the working with some of my favourite brands… but writing will always be my baby.

As soon as I received the products in the spotlight today, I’ve been so excited to write about them ever since. Today’s post features the most gorgeous pair of gladiator sandals which alongside these boots here, have not left my feet. (Can you tell that I’m a massive control freak and like to have a warm weather/cold weather option daily?).
The second item comes courtesy of Rodial and is a product that I’ve lusted over for years. It’s their glamstick in the colour Bite, and let me tell you that those years of dreaming – but being too much of a tight arse to actually purchase – were so, so worth. Enough waffle, let’s get cracking with the reviews…

Linzi Delilah High Leg Gladiator sandal in Tan nappa* – So, let’s talk about these sandals. For a start, from the 20bajillion million trillion umpteen amount of images of these, you can tell that I am seriously in love with them. Gladiator sandals are one of those love/hate items and evidently, I have all the love in the world for them. They fit really well around my funky shaped legs, they’re comfortable, they go with every spring/summer dress I own and just give you that cool, festival, boho vibe which I love. Also big love for Linzi because if you follow me on Twitter/Instagram/wherever the hell I can waffle on forever, then you’ll know that I was/at the time of writing this, still am, featured on the homepage of their website. I mean, I can die happy now, right?…

Rodial Glamstick in Bite – I mentioned this lipstick in both of these previous posts here & here #MajorFanGirl but it really is totally stunning. A very moisturising lipstick – well, it’s actually a tinted lip butter which explains the boost of hydration – that packs the biggest punch of pigment and colour. The colour itself is a gorgeous, natural, nude pink colour that I personally feel is the perfect colour for me (I am all about nude lips though). So if you’re in the market for a stunning nude pink that’s extremely moisturising with that touch of luxury and a beautiful coconut scent… this is your guy.

Well, lipstick anyway πŸ˜‰

So, that brings me to the end of this post. As much as I love big/huge/”go hard or go home” raves, it’s also nice to just bring it back to basics sometimes and a talk about just a couple of my favourite things right now. And that’s exactly what I did today.

I would love to know what your thoughts on gladiator sandals are? And which lipstick are you loving right now? I would love to hear your thoughts πŸ™‚

As always, thank you so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post!

    I swear you can pull of any look Elle! I must admit I'm not a fan of gladiator sandals, they remind me too much of the original gladiators haha! I don't mind sandals that just strap over the ankles though. Fav lippie at the moment is one from the Bourjois velvet rouge range!

    I didn't like gladiator sandals until I saw these *insert heart shaped eyes fan girl face emoji*. Love the dress too (always have a length problem with dresses and skirts, especially in the summer as I can't wear tights). First world problem I know but your little comment made me feel less lonely! xx
