5 Halloween Essentials


Everyone around me keeps saying to me that it is too early to start talking about Halloween. "Wait until next week Holly", "there is plenty of time" they say, but don't you think it is always better to be prepared? I really love Halloween and just like Christmas I enjoy the lead up to the day, with all the decorating and celebrating, so much more than the actual day itself. So, in the spirit of being prepared and enjoying the lead up to the festivities this week I have decided to share with you the five essentials that you will need for a classic look this Halloween. We don't want you to be getting ready, all in your costume and ready to do your makeup on the eve of 31st to realise you have no black glitter! Exactly, that would be a catastrophe. But don't worry, I've prepared so you don't have to. 

Style File: Black, Blue and Velcro Too


As we transition from Summer to Autumn dressing for the weather can become quite tricky here in England. One minute the sun is blaring down on you, the next it is pouring with rain. In this weather I like to keep it simple with a basic outfit that is practical (sorry fashion!) but still looks great. This time of year I want (read: need) a base that I can work from, something that looks great on its own but also with whatever coat I may need - be that a leather jacket or a big, fluffy sheepskin. I'm not one to go and change if my outfit doesn't suit the weather so the value of having an outfit that simply fits all eventualities with just the addition of a coat, jacket or a scarf is perfect. So what pieces make up this staple, summer/autumn 2017 outfit...

Recent Reads & Wonderful Watches


One of the things that my friends and I could spend hours doing is chatting about all the different things that we have been watching, listening to and reading. I always love hearing what they are loving, partly because I love listening to them ramble on about the things they are most passionate about but also because one of my favourite things is finding new shows, books and music to explore. Today I thought I would take inspiration from these wonderful catch ups and share what I have been loving 'entertainment wise' recently with you. I have narrowed it down to a few favourites and I hope it inspires you to maybe watch something that you haven't seen before or pick up a new book. 

3 Sensitive Skincare Staples


I have never been one for a complicated skincare routine, I'm going to be honest all this cleanse & double cleanse business everyone talks about all just really confuses me. Simple skincare, now there's something that appeals to me. I have always liked to have a quick but effective routine that I can  easily carry out in the morning, when I wake up, and at night, before I go to sleep. And that's all I need. In the past I have really struggled with skincare due to the fact I have eczema & sensitive skin (yay...), but I think I may have finally found the perfect products for me & I can't wait to share them with you.

Art Books 101


I am a sucker for a good book and, in my eyes, nothing beats a beautiful collection of books about things you love, whether that is astronomy or acrobatics, I really feel that each person's book shelf tells a story about who they are. Today I thought I would share with you one of my favourite parts of my collection, the art books. They have been so well read & poured over and provide a constant source of inspiration for me not just creatively but generally in life too. Not all art books are just full of pretty pictures & I'm here today to show you that there is a whole lot more going on inside the covers of these books than you may imagine...
