#SmallBiz Series!
Hello there! I have decided to start another new series on my Blog, this time focussing on small businesses. Being a blogger I am regularly put in touch with owners of small businesses and it is something I really do enjoy! Whether it be reviewing a product, service or finding a new company which sells fashion at an affordable price, there are often small teams of people behind it, plugging away, putting in the late nights and the early mornings trying everything to make a success out of their little business. I do feel, that as bloggers we owe some responsibility to them as more and more of them are turning to Twitter and bloggers alike to promote themselves. Plus, I think it's fun being one of only a handful of bloggers lucky enough to discover a burgeoning business and getting to trial some of their products! Or is that just me!?

I have found all of the business I'll be featuring on Twitter, under the hashtag #smallbiz! This is Part 6, go and read Part 1 Part 2, Part 3 Part 4 & Part 5, Part 6 & a Forever Memory Bears Special Feature too!
So if you like finding new places to buy fashion, beauty or a present for your loved one, sit back, grab a cuppa and read on!
Today I would like to talk to you about the lovely little online store, Shopafrolics. I think one thing us women can relate to is our love of shopping and how our dopamine levels go up when we've managed to find a great bargin! What is it about sales shopping that makes us go crazy!? I for one love being able to get money off something I've been wanting to buy anyway! What better way to fulfil our need than by shopping on a site that has done all the hard work for us and sourced items from the brands we all know and love and handily put them all into one place?! Oh yes! That would be Martina from Shopafrolics then!!
Martina has put together a wonderful little website where we can buy Dresses from Oasis, Shoes from Dorothy Perkins, Trousers from Topshop and Handbags from Dune! I love it!
There are so many items on Martina's site it might be hard wondering which item to bring home first! I have been lucky enough to be sent a couple of items from her wonderful little site and I shall review them for you now!

 I was very kindly sent this gorgeous blue flowery design purse and this super useful brush roll. Two items I absolutely love and which will get a lot of use.

The purse design is one I love as it's a big purse with lots of slots for cards, room for notes and a zip pocket for change! Brilliant!

The brush roll is perfectly designed to fit in all of my brushes and look super snazzy at the same time! I love the print on the front of it!

Easy to see at a quick glance that yes, that indeed is your brush roll lurking at the bottom of your handbag/washbag/overnight bag! I like to think that it's like a guide to help you figure out what goes where! Or is that just me!? It is a canvas roll which makes it super easy to clean, as it is bound to get mucked up at some stage.
Brush Roll £6.99 Blue Flower Detail Purse is £10.99.
Martina only stocks the best items and I can see myself getting a lot of use out of both of these two. I am always wanting to change up my purse so this one will be perfect for when I get that urge! As for the brush roll, I'm doing a lot more travelling between my childhood home and my parents new flat in Harrogate, so this will be perfect for me to put my make up brushes into, roll up and put into my overnight bag! They are both incredibly well made and I'm so impressed with the quality. Sometimes with sites such as Shopafrolics, to make up for the loss in profit, the quality of their products are sub-standard, but this is not the case here! Both products are of supreme quality and can be picked up for less than £20 with FREE UK delivery!! What could be better?!!?!? I'm not sure really, if you have any ideas, please let me know!
Martina has been very kind and given me an exclusive code for all of my readers! How very lucky you are!! This code can be used until the end of April. Use 'RAMBLING' for 15% off all your purchases! >.< Too kind, I know I know I just like to make you happy! Enjoy it!
I absolutely love the site that Martina has set up, it makes it so handy to have everything in once place. Just pop along to and shop away! Everything is divided into sections, from dresses, tops, shoes, handbags, shopper bags, hair accessories, printed scarves....the list goes on and on!!!
I urge you to check out her wonderful site, I'm sure there's something there which will catch your eye! Don't forget to use my exclusive code for 15% off your bill! You can thank me later! Haha!
