We’re one day away from December. This is not a drill. Party season is pretty much here; those awkward office parties where someone snogs Tim from accounts, the New Year’s Eve parties that are exactly the same every year but you go anyway in the hopes that this year will be different and you won’t end up in the kebab shop where all the staff know your name and you only seem to be wearing one shoe.
Wherever you’re going this festive season, my five must-have party products will get you looking and feeling your best. Even if it does rain and Sandra from HR throws up in the new expensive bag you got for Christmas.
I’m pretty glad to be seeing the back of November if I’m being honest because it’s been a bit of a roller-coaster month. But onward and upwards and all that jazz.
I’m really looking forward to December, especially Christmas, because I get to spend some downtime with J and my family. But before December happens, here’s a quick look at the things that I’ve been loving through November.
I wasn’t going to write anything about this, but to be honest, it’s still making me feel angry.
Huh? What the hell are you talking about Hols? Well, if you missed me having a good old rant about it on Twitter last week, a company (who shall remain nameless but amusingly rhymes with crappy and vile) decided to run a poll. This poll in fact.
It’s only that bloody time of year, well technically, it’s not quite but who’s going to want a gift guide a week before Christmas? No one, that’s who!
I’ve compiled a list of gift ideas I think you might love for your nearest and dearest. Or yourself. Treat yo’self, it’s Christmas!!
Scarlett Jewellery* in Hove have just launched their Christmas collection and I met up with Áine, Georgia, Isla and Natalie for a lovely blogger evening to check it all out.
Even though there are quite a few posts out there regarding no-follow links, I still see loads of people posting on blogging forums asking what they are, how to use them, why you should use them and what happens if you don’t.
So I’m going to explain it in my own Holly style of writing and hope to hell I make some sort of sense! You might want to go and make a cuppa before I start…
Last Thursday evening I went to the Thomas Sabo event* with Charlie, Katie and Tania. It was held in TH Baker in Churchill Square, Brighton.
Thomas Sabo, which sells jewellery, watches and fragrances, have just brought out their new A/W collection and they invited us to have a look.
Since I started going to blog meets and events at the beginning of this year, I’ve accumulated about 6 drawers full of goodies! I always mean to get around to trying everything, but life and being
forgetful lazy gets in the way. So I thought if I made blog posts out of it, I’d probably actually make an effort to try out some of the bits and let you know what they’re like!
This has been sitting in my drafts for absolutely ages, mostly because I wanted to take some photos which would do absolute justice to this palette but I just couldn’t get them right. Does anyone else ever have that problem?
Back in August, I was lucky enough to win one of the Shadow Switches from Beauty Essentials. You may have seen them floating round the blogging world recently, but what exactly is a Shadow Switch? (Totally said in the tone of Mr Weasley regarding the functions of rubber ducks!)
