With love from Lou is a popular fashion, beauty and lifestyle blog which features lots of lovely product reviews, gift guides, outfit inspiration and much more. It was created by Louise, a 33 year old mum of 2 from Nottinghamshire back in January 2012, and it quickly gathered a small but loyal following.
Over the years With love from Lou has been featured in the press, nominated for awards and Louise has even interviewed bands and spoken at workshops around the country. This year she hopes to start making YouTube videos to run alongside her blog.
ARE YOU A BRAND OR PR WHO WOULD LIKE TO WORK WITH LOU?
Over the years Louise has worked with brands in many ways, and she’s always open to suggestions, collaborative campaigns and championing products she truly believes in. She loves hearing from people wanting to work with her, but if you’re a PR or brand please bear the following in mind:
1. Louise will only write about things she’s interested in. She likes lipstick, perfume, shoes/boots and Michael Bublé. Take the time to see if there’s a real possibility she would be able to write about your product and if it’s relevant to her audience.
2. The whole point of a blog like With love from Lou is to try and recommend products after using them. It’s impossible to tell what a product is like from an image, so a physical product would be expected in exchange for an honest review.
3. Louise does not offer free guest posts or ‘reciprocal links’ on her blog. She’s spent a lot of time and effort to get With love from Lou to where it is today, and even quit her day job as a customer service manager in order to write full-time. A link back from your website doesn’t pay the bills, no matter how big your following is!
4. Please don’t be upset if Louise doesn’t feature every product your brand sends her. She’s lucky enough to be sent lots of lovely things each month, and would never have the time to write about all of them. Louise will always feature those items she likes the most and feels would be well received by her readers before any others.
SAMPLE POLICY: Please note that any samples sent to Louise are for consideration only and do not guarantee a feature or mention on withlovefromlou.co.uk.
If you would still like to work with Louise, get in touch about sending a product or want to request her media kit, then please e-mail her at email@example.com. Thank you.
