Blush Creations & Positive Affirmations ft. Oliver Bilou Giveaway

Blush styles and positive affirmations have one thing in common: they make you feel a little bit warm and tingly inside.

It a world full of, let's be honest, freaking scary stuff, it can be all to easy to lose yourself in a sea of worries, rather than living in the moment.

Today, I'm taking advice from my Oliver Bilou* handbag:

Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.

Read on for my transitional blush outfit, which is topped off perfectly with my new statement handbag. Plus, I'm giving away two of these handbags to you! (Yes you!)

When blush first started to make an appearance on the fashion circuit, I wasn't quite convinced. However, I just hadn't considered exactly how I would style it.

This pastel look has honestly made me fall in love with blush. As the floral dress is the epitome of girly girl, I felt like I needed something just that little bit edgy to tone it down.

Enter the Oliver Bilou Vivian bag; a cute and quirky, statement handbag in a stunning lilac-gray tone. With a quirky plaited detail and unusual shape, this bag is literally that perfect finishing quirk to add to any luck.

After getting so many compliments on my rose gold and black Mia bag, I couldn't wait to take this one out for a spin. Best of all, it actually fits my DSLR camera in it. Yep: goodbye stylish, standard black canvas bag and hello Vivian!I choose to radiate love, joy & gratitude today. I know life is too short to dwell on negativity. I walk in the light!

I'm a firm believer that handbags can increase happiness; hey, that's what Chanel bags are for, right? This Oliver Bilou bag takes the sheer joy of handbags to a new level.

When you open up this dreamy, grey bag, you are met by a positive affirmation that instantly uplifts you:


Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.

With each bag containing a different message to help you smile and feel confident, I thought I'd share some of my favorite positive affirmations.

5 Positive Affirmations To Instantly Make Your Day Better

  29. I remember you unboxing that bag on InstaStories and I was going 'oooo' and 'ahhhh' when I saw the bag. LOL! I wasn't sure about the colour blush either but the more I see fashion bloggers styling it, the prettier it looks to me.

  41. I love this look and I am all about the pastels at the minute. It's so nice and refreshing to see some lighter and brighter colours coming through after the dullness that comes with winter :) I think having a positive affirmation in your handbag is such a great idea too and I haven't seen anything similar anywhere else! x
