To find the live campaigns - go to 'Promotion' > 'Campaigns' once logged into your Blogger Network account. 

Below are this week's featured campaigns.

Chi Chi:
Chi-Chi is a leading retailer of ladies fashion, specialising in Cocktail, Prom and Evening Dresses. They are dedicated to bringing the finest catwalk fashion to the high street at affordable prices and believe that looking great and feeling good go hand in hand.

Chi Chi require bloggers to have at least 600 followers on a mainly fashion focused blog with clear photography, before they can be accepted onto the campaign. If this is you then Chi Chi can offer you one sample to feature in a blog post in exchange for a banner in your sidebar for one month and the use of a tracking text link through to the website in the post.

Lashes of London:
Launched in S/S12. LASHES embodies a fresh take on fashion, combining great style and supreme credibility. The brand is your radar for identifying the ultimate edit of major trends for the style devoted and fashion addicted.

To work with Lashes you must have at least 700 blog followers on a fashion focused blog with clear images. If you meet these requirements then Lashes can offer you a sample in exchange for a blog post using a tracking text link through to the website, plus a banner in your sidebar for one month.

She Likes:
Since 2011, She Likes have been aspiring to become one of the leading online fashion retailers in the UK. They bring everything from catwalk to casual styles to suit everyone as soon as they are available. Stock is updated daily and their finger is on the pulse of the current fashion scene at all times.

You must have at least 600 blog followers on a fashion focused blog with clear images to meet She Likes' blogger requirements. If this is you then you can receive an item in exchange for a blog post using a tracking text link, plus a banner in your sidebar for one month. 

Things to remember:
- Please only apply to work with a brand if you meet the requirements detailed in their campaign description. 
- All bloggers need to ensure that as much information is entered into your 'Personal Details' section as possible - brands will use this information to approve or decline your application to their campaign.
- The brands have the final decision to approve or decline an application onto a campaign or a sample request.
- Bloggers may be declined due to the blogger/sample quota being met for that month, the blog may not suit the brand's style or the blog may not meet the brand's requirements among other reasons. 

The next steps:
If you're successfully approved onto a campaign then you will receive an email to let you know. Similarly, if you are declined you will also receive an email stating the brand's decision and reasoning.
Once approved, you are able to access the text links and banners for the brand. You are also able to see the brand under the 'Brand Samples' tab and request samples.

Please ensure that your address is correct before requesting a sample, the brand will send the item to the address listed in your profile! It is your responsibility to make sure that this is current and correct. 

If your sample request is accepted then you will need to post about the item within two weeks of receiving the item. It is essential that you use the tracking text link which can be found under 'Campaigns' > 'Banners and Links' > then filter the banners by brand to find the correct link. 

That should cover everything you need to know for now, there is more information in our FAQs and also on the home page of your Blogger Network account. If you need to get in touch with us please fill in the 'Contact Us' form on the left hand side of your Blogger Network account and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Happy promoting!
