The products are so beautifully packaged in a super cute, sparkly pink design! I love the graphics on them and insde and out the packaging helps you with how to use to different products! I like helpfulness!
Hollywood's clear double-stick "Do everything" apparel and body tape
36 easy-to-use clear double strips
Bra Converting Clip
Create instant lift and cleavage …(hello yes please!!!)
Keep your pants securely tucked into your boots
Perfect size for holding accessories in place!
'When you don't need a lot, use a dot
- There is nothing more annoying than when your sleeve rolls down (Usually mine ends up in my dinner) When your watch swivvels around and more annoyingly, when you just want your scarf to sit right! Once again, the tape is durable and the stick lasts for a long time, even on my thick scarf!
- I love the concept of this company and will definitly be heading over to their gorgeous, sparkly pint website LINK! to purchase their 'Fashion Emergancy Kit' and 'Hip Hugger'. Go have a peek yourself and see what you think of the products!
If you have any wardrobe concerns or the worry of an omnious fashion malfunction then I recommend this company who are industry recognised by US magazine and Cosmopolitan, although they are an American company they ship to the UK yay!

I only picked up a few items however, I am really pleased with my purchases, you may be able to see a colour theme running through!
First up, A lovely H and M skirt. This beautful, silky skirt was in the sale for £15!
I don't know why but I am never one to buy skirts, I only own two of the same black bodycon skirts from Primark. I wanted to be adventurous and after looking at it on the hanger for a good few minutes. It was in my hand! I have to say I am rather shocked that I fit comfortably into a size 8 garment! The skirt really singes me in at the waist and is lovely and flowy. It has too pieces of material to tye at the front into a bow and has two large, deep pockets at either side! Later on that same day I found them very useful for stashing my phone, ID and money in!
In honesty, it was the colours in the skirt that appealed to me. You know me, always one to wear 'out there' clothing. It will be perfect for summer too! I did struggle to find a a top to go with it though, What kind of top would you recommend with it? I opted for a lace black t shirt which looked okay.
As a self confessed total, Primark geek (and Sara too ha ha!) We popped into Primark I picked up some beautiful fluttery lashes for a mere quid! I don't have a picture of them though as I lost one of the pair on a night out. I really recommend them for a fluttery, 'bambi' eye! I was also umming and arring about what shoes to wear with the skirt, I knew I was wearing black lace tights but I really wasn't looking forward to the tootsie cramps as the night progressed! I spotted these gorgeous dolly shoes! I think they are very bohemian and they are also glittery EVEN better! They were £8 and as Sara said, they will look gorgeous in the summer with a tan! I didn't end up wearing on them on the night out. At five foot 3, I reckoned I needed a bit of height! So I opted for my trusty black wedges! Sara bought the glittery, rose gold pair of the same kind, I have my beady eye on them also!
That was all I bought from Leeds but today, after work I had an urge to go and get a choppy fringe cut in. If you follow me on Twitter [@gollymshollie] you will know that I am obsessed with Jessica Jane Clement (If you are not familar who she is, she is a model, TV presenter and was recently on I'm a celebrity get me out of here) She has opted for a full fringe - it looks rather sexy! So I copied! I am a fan of full fringes and I usually have one cut in twice a year. You will be able to see it in my upcomming videos on my YouTube channel!
I also bought these two bath bombs from Lush! I bought 'Vanilla fountain' which actually contains real Vanilla, 'Space girl' and 'Lil christmas pud'. I love having Lush bath bombs in my room, it makes it smell all lovely and well….Lush! I am looking forward to lighting my candles and having a relaxing bubble bath pre and post Christmas!
I went into H and M, my local store and bought something that I had seen Sara try on in Leeds that I ABSOLUTLEY loved, right up my street! A Kimono style blouse! Wow, it is love I absolutley love it! It was £14.99 and I know that I will never take this off! It is silky and the pattern is oriental inspired! I have seen Primark doing similar ones for MORE MONEY! =O! A word of advice though, I am a size 10 and I had to get the XS-S as the medium drownd me!
Finally, I called at the market to pick up a new iphone case! My leopard print one snapped on one side. I decided to go for a glitzy and glam upgrade! What do you think?
So, there we have it! What a mammoth post! Wowzah! Hope you are all enjoying the festive period!
Love, Holl x

Since then I have been lusting over EVERYTHING bright red, shiny red and 'in-your-face' red!
As you all know I have been on a quest to have my hair bright red so today in order to match and follow suit my nails, toenails and lips all had a touch of Christmassy red! Woo!
This afternoon after a dismal drive home from college, I walked in to find a Glossybox sitting pretty on the kitchen worktop. I opened it to find exactly what my heart desired A BRIGHT RED GLOSSYBOX! I suddenly felt all christmassy and excited. I couldn't wait to open the box's glossy lid and see what was held inside.
I have to say that the contents are absolutely fantastic and right up my street. I have always been sceptical of the contents and it just shows that some months you love everything (i.e this month ha ha!) and some months you don't take a fancy to anything.
So what were the products tickling my pickle so much this month
- Rituals Foaming Shower Gel Full sized product!!! £6.50 /200ml
"This unique fomaing shower gel gently cleanses your skin and leaves it silky soft and smooth"
At first I mistook this for shaving gel whoops! I recieved the 'Yogi Flow' Indian Rose & Sweet Almond flavour in a hot pink, sexy bottle! The exotic smell of this product is gorgeous and I can't wait to get in the shower tonight and use it. I love lovely smelling products to use in the bath or shower and I am looking forward to lathering this beauty up under a hot shower!
- Deborah Lippmann Nail Varnish in 'Razzle Dazzle' & "The Stripper to go, for go-go girls" nail varnish mitts The full size nail varnish is £16 & the remover mits are 6 for £14
Party glitter nail colour with a sachet of the most amazing polish remover finger nail mitt."
How fabulous is this RED GLITTER!!!! need I say more colour? Amaze-balls! My sneaky mum had her eye on this for herself on New years eve! I can't wait to wear this. I love red and I love Christmassy glitter PERFECT! I am also interested to see how the mitts work as I never had much success with remover pads, I end up with a coloured smudged mess all over my fingers. Using these on the bright red I have on my nails currently will be interesting to see if it really is 'amazing'.
- Bionova Eye Wrinkle Treatment Full size product is £43 for 14.18g
- "Utilizes the technology based on Life Science Nanotechnology by treating the skin with the same ingredients in the same quantities and ratio naturally produced by a human body."
I know that I am not really at an age to test this effectivley but I love the concept! I shall be giving this to my mum to have a go with and see what she thinks.
-Cargo Cosmetics Classic Lip Gloss Full size product is £10
- Cargo's new lip hloss formulation! Perfect shades, great wear and high-shine without being sticky."
Sounds bloody perfect to me! The colour I have is 'Last Vegas' a gorgeous rose gold colour. I would pick this shade myself and I am looking forward to wearing it over my MAC 'Angel' Lipstick.
- Blink + Go Eyeshadow & Blush Palette Full Size product worth £14.95
Blink + Go eye makeup is the ultimate effect for eyes. Take your eye-style to a dizzy height with maximum colour and a perfect silk texture and finish."
I really need to get into wearing blushes. I am more of a bronzer girl so I am inteested to try these out. The eyeshadows are colours I would wear for statements eyes, they look highly pigmented and I will be wearing an eye combination with one of these shades for certain.

This week, that is exactly what I have done.
I often find that in the winter I dress extremely weather inappropriate and in the summer I dress for colder temperatures. weirdo . After freezing my poor self in hail and gale force winds on Saturday night I have deservantly contracted the bad cold. I say bad because I want to make it sound worse than a few sniffles but can't go quite as far as saying i'm bed ridden with flu. This aside I do feel pretty damn ropey. This unfortunate factor is not helped when I am walking around wearing a floaty blouse and a leather jacket. Yes, as a legal adult my mother still had her displeased and unimpressed opinion about this.
TOO THE SHOPS WE GO…
I bought this one in a shade that I can only describe as a 'watered mustard'. It matches nicely with my new cardigan and I love the idea of a scarf that doesn't have the annoying 'taily' bits and the ability to wrap it around your neck twice without being strangled. I love it, it is warm and comfy and makes me
I then ambled over to TK Maxx, well you can't really avoid that beautiful place can you?
After eyeing it up for weeks I finally bought this furry squirrel-esc gillet with beautiful rhinestone embellishment on the collar.
I love it for layering over jumpers and it is also suitable for a night out as it 'dressy' enough. I already have a similar furry gillet and it was that, that inspired me to purchase this one. It retailed at £36.
My next puchase was from the 'Mod Box' at TK Maxx I love their quirky blouses and t shirts in the range and although I was eyeing up a cardigan I picked up this beautiful and unique blouse and fell in love for a number of reasons.
1) It is floaty, light and has fringing!
2) The shape of the blouse when it is on is sort of 'Poncho - esc) I LOVE that.
3) IT IS PEACOCK FEATHER GALORE! Woohoo! I love peacock feather's and in the foreseeable future I hope to be brave and get inked up with a peacock feather just above my ankle.
The blouse was a barginous £12!
Lastly, I pottered down to a shop housing a very smiley asian man and an array of fluorescent stickers on the window shouting " ALL HANDBAGS £10" well I was like ooh hello! I am a handbag girl, shoes = mehh handbags = yeah! I have so many handbags, one more won't hurt right? For a tenner I bought this crocodile, pleather 'doctors style' bag.
Unfortunatley it holds barely anything and the shoulder strap broke but hey ho! It looks good! I feel like a proper little lady walking around with it hung in the crook of my arm! NEGATIVES ASDE! LEOPARD PRINT LINING FTW!
As I finish college early on Friday's I have designated this day to filming, editing, uploading day on YouTube. I know that I already tweeted this but would you prefer an 'Updated what's in my bag?" Or the '13 personal questions tag' ( or whatever it is called these days )
I have a gruelling psychology mock exam tomorrow. :( Not to be a moaning merle but it really hits me how close my A2 exams are and how little I feel I know. eek!
Are there any readers out there who are in my position?
ooh ps, a few people on Twitter asked to see how we decorate our house at Christmas as I told you we have themed tree's, do you still want a post on that? Let me know below.
