Happy Friday you gorgeous lot, I hope you've all been able to enjoy the sunshine this week! I'm currently typing this with a sun-burnt back, which has made me look, as my friend Liv described me, like a drumstick lolly (god help me haha). So, with that in mind, remember you SPF people!

Regardless of my sunburn and ridiculous tan lines though, today I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite white summer dresses that I've spotted. A white dress is a fail-safe piece to have in your wardrobe for the warmer months and there are so many great ones out there right now!

Let me know if anything catches your eye!



Short Dresses

From smock dresses, to shift styles and strappy swing frocks that you can prance around a meadow in, a short white dress is perfect for those hot Summer days, and also allows you to get those legs tanning (or add a few more freckles in my case).




Long Dresses

For a more chilled-out and relaxed feel, midi/maxi dresses are great. They give that 'I'm on my way to a nice restaurant on holiday in Greece' vibe and also work beautifully if you've got a busy day ahead but fancy something comfortable and cool to work in.




Long Sleeved Dresses

For those cooler days and evenings, long sleeved dresses are a good option. Whether that's shirt style dresses and ones with statement sleeves, they still allow you to have that clean summer look, but with a little bit of added warmth if needed!

Lockdown has been the perfect time for me to trial out some new skincare products. I've had 3 staples in my life for a while now - I wrote about those in a previous blog post HERE - but it's always nice to give some other things a whirl and see if they can be a good addition to the collection!

I was recently sent some lovely products by Ede, who are an independent brand focusing on using organic and natural plant oils, as well as creating a new wave of aromatherapy. Ede believes that as humans, our lifestyles, emotions, thoughts and feelings all respond to our sense of smell more than any other sense, which is why their products center around the use of natural ingredients that smell incredible and super calming.

The thought process behind Ede is a connection between our skin and emotions, which is something I can really relate to. "How we feel in our mind and body shows on our skin" - and so their products are formulated to encourage the best version of ourselves.

Ede are also environmentally conscious, packaging their products in recyclable glass with reusable plastic lids, as well as offering a plastic free alternative of aluminium lids too.

They're just an all-round really lovely brand and I feel so privileged to be able to give these products a go!



Cleanse It Back Face Cleanser

First up we have the Cleanse It Back Face Cleanser. I recently ran out of my usual oil cleanser, so was so excited to have this one to try out.

This cleanser is designed to help balance the skin, reduce redness and control oil production. It contains Vitamin E too, which is great for combating acne (something I suffer with).

I simply apply the oil to dry skin, massage it in, add a little bit of water and rinse away!

Since using it, I have noticed such a difference in my skin's texture. My skin feels super plump and soft, and I've also seen a reduce in redness too. I can tell it's working it's magic on my breakouts, as they seem to be calming down by the day as I'm using this.

The great thing about it is that it's suitable for any skin type, even super sensitive ones like mine. It's wonderful to have such a good product out there that works it's magic on anyone and everyone!



Born Again Treat Mask

Next we have the Born Again Treat Mask.

This face mask is designed to brighten and resurface the texture of the skin. It's also described as a 'superfood powerhouse', which just makes you want to slather it all over your face until you're skin is 100% superfood-ified, doesn't it?!

I try not to use masks to often, as I can find them to be a little harsh and overwhelming for my skin, but this one has been really lovely to use.

I can suffer with quite dry, rough patches on my face and this does such a wonderful job of evening out my skin's texture when it needs a little extra TLC.

I tap a little in my hands, add around a teaspoon of water, mix it together and apply to my face. I then leave it on for around 15 minutes and voila!



BDE Roll On Therapist

Last but not least we have the BDE Roll On Therapist.

Now, not only is the name of this just amazing (I mean, who does't love a bit of 'big dick energy'?!) but the product itself is just fab!

This is a roll-on oil that contains everything you need to "reach an attitude of cool, casual, confidence". It contains a mixture of Rosemary, Basil, Bergamot and Lavender to help ease your anxious thoughts and take you into a more assured head-space.

I love using this in the mornings before my day ahead. I simply roll onto my wrists, giving them a little sniff, of course, because the sweet scent is amazing, and then let BDE work it's magic!

It's no secret that I love a good blazer, I'm constantly on the hunt for new shapes, styles and tones to add to my wardrobe, so today I thought I'd share with you some of the ones I've had my eye on lately!

In all honesty, a lot of these are from H&M because they're just killing it right now. Even the blazer in the photo above is an old Men's H&M blazer that I picked up in a charity shop - they just seem to get it right every time! But anyway, hopefully if you're as blazer obsessed as me, you'll find something that catches your eye below:

Hey guys, how are we all?

With this week being Mental Health Awareness week, I thought I'd get a blog post out there and check in on you all!

The theme for MHAW this year is 'Kindness', which I think is something that is at forefront of everyone's minds right now given the current climate. It's important that during this time we stick together and continue to lift each other up as much as we can, and to remember that, everyone is going through their own thing and being considerate should always come before anything else with that.

As I've said in a previous blog post, now more than ever, I have noticed everyone around me lifting each other up, supporting each other and spreading kindness in so many ways and I think it's truly wonderful. From nice comments on a friend's photo, to dropping a bottle of wine on your pals driveway and checking in on one another and sharing giggles over a Zoom call, there's love and kindness being spread daily right now and it's so so nice to see.


Yet there are still some aspects of the world, especially online, that can be a tough place and kindness isn't always spread everywhere - sometimes hate and disregard become prevalent and that is something I don't think is talked about enough.

I think as much as it's important to speak our minds and share our opinions, we have to remember the effects that our words and actions can have on other people. Often people forget that their words can hurt and linger over someone's life, and it leaves us in a situation where people spread out nasty comments and unneeded opinions that affect people in the worst ways.

There have been so many occasions where I've seen people (especially content creators) who open up about the affects that online hate has had on their lives and it's truly painful to know that such amazing people are being torn down, simply by the fact that other's haven't thought about the affects of their words before speaking or sending them.

To think of someone experiencing this, simply because other's aren't considering their actions and have decided to be unkind, for whatever reason, is truly heartbreaking.

"what susie says of sally, says more of susie than of sally"

If I have one thing to say in this post, it's simply that people need to think before they speak. People need to learn that no one is forcing you to look at a photo, or watch a video or listen to a song and it's so so easy to simply click away, leaving not a single trace of nastiness behind.

The same goes for real life - you don't like someone's outfit? Okay, cool. That's fine! But they do like their outfit, so let them enjoy it!

Everyone is different. Everyone likes different things, acts a different way, has a different sense of humour, has a different sense of style or taste in films or music. It's what makes us all unique, and surely that should be celebrated and not scrutinized.

Judgement is a habit that I wish we all could knock. It'd be so great to be in a world where people just let others be themselves and do their own thing. Obviously, that's circumstantial, I don't think we should let people who do bad things roam freely doing whatever they want, but you get what I mean.

Like I said we're all human, with our own opinions, but sometimes it's just kinder to keep it to yourself and let bygones be bygones.



Okay. Rant over!

I hope you're all okay and dealing with this crazy situation as best you can. I know that, for me, it has been a bit of a roller-coaster, and almost as if I'm living in some alternate universe, but we just have to take each day as it comes, right?

I think this time in lockdown has definitely made a lot of us appreciate what's truly important in life. From the people we keep close to us, to the regard for others and our health - hopefully we'll all come out of this with new perspectives.

The kindness of others during this time has certainly kept me going, and to anyone who continues to be a lovely, supportive light in my life, thank you ♥️

Last but not least (and in the spirit of kindness, of course) I just wanted to give a mention to my lovely friend Liv who runs Olivia Annabelle Apparel. The blouse in this post was made by her and, honestly, I'm just constantly in awe of her talent. She has some absolutely gorgeous designs that are perfect for Spring/Summer (her Bloomsbury collection is to die for!). I'll link her site HERE so you can check her out. She's truly fabulous!

Anyway, lots of love to you all, look after yourselves.

Eye shadow is one of my favourite beauty products to play around with. I love seeing which colours work with my eyes, which textures I like, practicing blending (because lord knows I'm rubbish at it!)

Eyeko recently sent over their NEW Double Act Shadow Sticks for me to try out and I am absolutely obsessed with them - I wear my Yin & Yang one daily!




These shadow sticks have a creamy formula and are double-ended, with two complimenting shades, which allow you to blend them effortlessly together to create a gorgeous eye look. They're just the perfect thing to have in your bag to take your make-up look from day to night - for example, in these photos I'm wearing the shade 'Yang' and if I wanted to vamp-up the look a little more, I can add more of the 'Yin' side of the shadow stick in there to do so!

Eyeko are currently offering you guys a FREE full sized Eye Do Liquid Liner with my code 'HOLLYFREE' when you order on the Eyeko site, so make sure you go and have a look because these Eyeko products are just so fab!

Happy Shopping!

Hello guys!

I really enjoyed sharing my last 'Life In Black & White' post with you, so I thought I would make it a regular thing. Some posts may just be filled with images I've taken that I'm itching to share, and others may be a little more wordy, either way, I hope you enjoy these little snapshots of life.


From flowers blooming, ideas flowing, to evening glasses of wine, days sat in the sun, and some days simply never leaving my bed, the last few weeks have been filled with lots of ups and downs. I've found it particularly difficult to find my feet this week most of all and, by the sounds of it, a lot of us have felt the same.

Whether it was the announcement last weekend that made us feel a little confused and flat, or just the fact that our energy levels have all synced up and decided to plateau, there's been something weird in the air this week (it feels wrong to say that considering COVID-19, but I can't think of another metaphor right now, it's too early).

I feel like I've been pushing through a clouded mind and it's ironic that the week where I have lots of work to get on with is the week I've felt least creative and motivated.



Despite that 'flat' feeling that's lingered over me, I've still managed to do a couple of nice things with my time this week.

Josh taught me how to make a caramel latte over Facetime, since we've both been missing our daily dose of Costa Coffee and couldn't last a minute longer without a decent sip of caffeinated goodness. We both ordered some syrups to get delivered so we could enjoy the full 'faux Costa' experience and, I'm not going to lie, I've already run out of my caramel one - it's just so good! He works in a coffee shop, so I've been taught some professional skills here, which I am truly putting to use everyday now (seriously, I've already had 2 and it's only 8:30am *help*).

I also did some more baking! I obviously made cookies, since it's the only thing I really know how to bake, but my Mum and I made some Reece's buttercup cookies, as well as some good ol' Smarties ones, and they were pretty damn good if you ask me! Baking seems to be another thing I'm excelling my skills in - not sure why all my skills have turned to making food and drink though haha.



I've taken a lot of solace in the evenings lately. I really appreciate that time of day where I'm simply allowed to wind down and chill out.

My days have felt quite stressful, with long to-do lists and no energy left to complete them. Like I said earlier, it's felt like I've been trying to work with a completely foggy mindset this week, and there's nothing less motivating than that really. So, when the clock hits 5pm, it's straight back into some comfies and a cup of tea made! It's really nice to try and switch off from everything and just engross myself in some cheesy Disney+.

And, although the workload has felt quite difficult due to my complete loss of creativity (urgh), there's still this big ball of excitement inside me about it, and anything that I have managed to shoot this week, I've very happy with and truly can't wait to share.

I really do feel like a roller-coaster of emotions and thoughts right now - I guess that kind of shows in this blog post haha. But regardless, who isn't going to feel like that right now? I mean, who knows how to feel? 

I hope you're all well anyway. All my love x

Hey guys, I hope you're all well? Today I just wanted to fill you in on some new products that landed on my doorstep from Eyeko (the products in this post are *gifted).

Eyeko isn't actually a brand that I've tried out before, but so far, after using a few of these things, I'm really impressed! These products are super affordable too, which is great if you're on the hunt for some new make up right now, but don't want to break the bank!

Anyway, enough chit chat, let's see what we've got, shall we?


Lash Alert Mascara

First up we have mascara - a beauty product that will forever have a big place in my heart.

Eyeko's Lash Alert Mascara is said to be the perfect thing for people on the go. It's infused with Caffeine and Biotin to help give lashes that super 'awake' feel and lift them throughout the entire day.

After giving this a go, my first impressions were that it definitely helps to give a lot of volume and curl to the lashes - I already have quite curly lashes so can't really comment on how much of a lift it gives - and it lasted really well, even on a super sunny day. I had no smudging or drop down!

It also contains Arginine - which helps with cell division and healing - to repair the lashes, even whilst wearing the mascara, which I think is really cool!





Define It Brow Pencil

Now, as we already know, I'm a girl with no eyebrows (they're there but basically invisible haha). I love my blonde brows and don't really ever have the desire to fill them in. My Mum on the other hand, is all about those brow products, so I actually gave this one to her so she could give it a whirl.

The Define It Brow Pencil is said to be the perfect thing for creating a natural looking hair strokes and a more defined brow shape. It's also double ended, so there's no need to get your hands on an extra spoolie brush!

It comes in 3 shades: Light, Medium, Dark and is said to be a really build-able consistency.

My Mum said: "It's very easy to use. The angled tip helps to give a good shape and the colour is very natural" - if Momma White approves, then it must be good!

Brow Gel

Eyeko also have their Brow Gel too - perfect for pairing with the Define it Brow Pencil!

It helps to give the brows a fuller and more finished feel and also contains garcinia mangostana fruit extract to help condition the brows - how fab!







Skinny Liquid Eyeliner

Last but not least, we have eyeliner!

Eyeko's Skinny Liquid Eyeliner is a precise pen, which lets you line your lids with ease. It has a unique, long-lasting formula too - with algae extract to prevent smudging and give a full intense colour.

It's said to create both thick feline flicks, as well as more defined lines too - so you get the best of both worlds in one product!

I've also given this product to my Mum to try out and it's meant to be super long-lasting, so we'll see what she thinks when she's tried and tested it properly, but so far, it's sounding pretty good!



If you're interested in any of these, you can used my code HOLLYW25 on the Eyeko site for 25% off too!

It also contains Arginine - which helps with cell division and healing - to repair the lashes, even whilst wearing the mascara, which I think is really cool!





Define It Brow Pencil

Now, as we already know, I'm a girl with no eyebrows (they're there but basically invisible haha). I love my blonde brows and don't really ever have the desire to fill them in. My Mum on the other hand, is all about those brow products, so I actually gave this one to her so she could give it a whirl.

The Define It Brow Pencil is said to be the perfect thing for creating a natural looking hair strokes and a more defined brow shape. It's also double ended, so there's no need to get your hands on an extra spoolie brush!

It comes in 3 shades: Light, Medium, Dark and is said to be a really build-able consistency.

My Mum said: "It's very easy to use. The angled tip helps to give a good shape and the colour is very natural" - if Momma White approves, then it must be good!

Brow Gel

Eyeko also have their Brow Gel too - perfect for pairing with the Define it Brow Pencil!

It helps to give the brows a fuller and more finished feel and also contains garcinia mangostana fruit extract to help condition the brows - how fab!







Skinny Liquid Eyeliner

Last but not least, we have eyeliner!

Eyeko's Skinny Liquid Eyeliner is a precise pen, which lets you line your lids with ease. It has a unique, long-lasting formula too - with algae extract to prevent smudging and give a full intense colour.

It's said to create both thick feline flicks, as well as more defined lines too - so you get the best of both worlds in one product!

I've also given this product to my Mum to try out and it's meant to be super long-lasting, so we'll see what she thinks when she's tried and tested it properly, but so far, it's sounding pretty good!

Now more than ever I have felt that sense of community amongst us all. I've noticed this unending stream of kindness from others each day - an overwhelming sense of support for one another - and it just feels so incredible that, in times like these, we're able to lift each other up, even in the smallest of ways.

From simple comments on each other's photos, to messages checking up on each other, and flowers sent to our doorsteps, the love and support floating round right now is truly heart-warming.

I think it's so important to lift each other up in life, pandemic or no pandemic. It's so amazing to be able to support your friends, your colleagues, your family, and celebrate every little victory.

Sometimes within the whirlwind of life, I think we forget what a simple 'this is great!' or 'well done!' can mean to someone. It's the little things in life that keep us going, that keep us spurring onward towards what we want.

Whether your friend got a new job, baked a cake, posted a pretty photo or even just managed to shower, celebrate it! Live in those small moments of success and recognize the power of excitement they can hold, maybe not for you, but for the other person.

Sometimes people don't celebrate themselves enough, and a little encouragement from others can bring such a light into someone's day. I know for a fact that I doubt myself a lot, and I never really recognise when I've done something good, or even great. Yet, it's the support from friends/family/whoever that can bring me to the realisation that, yeah, I've done something worth celebrating.

I hope that this level of love and support between us all continues even through brighter times. I hope to see more of us all championing each other and spreading love as far as we can.

Lots of love to you all x

Hi Guys, I hope you're well and looking after yourselves! Lately I've been feeling a little less motivated and a lot more 'meh', but after a week of relaxing, baking cookies, eating cookies and sleeping sleeping sleeping, I'm starting to feel more like myself (my true sloth form, clearly haha).

For a while now, I've struggled with quite bad skin, and this has definitely been something that has contributed to my up-and-down mood during lock down, however, there have been 3 products that have been absolute fail-safe for me and I thought today, that I would share them with you guys!



Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil

Now this, THIS, is probably my all-time favourite beauty/skincare product, ever. This product has been an absolute life-saver for me, as you can probably tell by the fact that I've photographed the empty bottle in the images above.

The Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil is a gentle make-up dissolving oil, infused with a blend of botanical oils, which nourishes and soothes skin, whilst also removing those last little bits of make-up that micellar water can't always get!

As someone with super sensitive, and occasionally very dehydrated, skin, I've found this to be the perfect thing to start each day and end each day. I don't like to over-dose my skin with too many products, as I find doing so usually makes me break out and angers my skin, so the beauty of this cleansing oil is that it does so many things for my complexion in one turn.

Most cleansers I had tried prior to this had always left my skin with that tight and dry feeling, yet this one is just so perfect, gently melting away make up and leaving my skin feeling super clean and soft. I massage it into my face, turning the oil into a more milky, frothy texture and then simply rinse off with water and pat my face dry with a towel. I'm always thrilled with how subble and smooth my skin is left feeling.

It never leaves any residue on my face either, and has helped clear up my skin so so much. Both me and my skin are always left feeling so super calm after using this. I simply cannot rave about it enough. Like I said, it has pride of place as my favourite beauty product ever.

Absolute 10/10 - a MUST buy!




Bobbi Brown Hydrating Fresh Water Cream

Now, this is a new product on my radar, but I've been using it for the last month or so and have absolutely fallen in love!

The Bobbi Brown Hydrating Fresh Water Cream is a face cream, formulated with over 70% water. It's lightweight, oil free and helps double skins moisture immediately, meaning it's perfect for combination/dry skin. 

I suffer with a lot of dry patches and redness, which this product is designed to reduce and balance out and it does so perfectly. It also helps minimize pores, whilst strengthening the skins moisture barrier and protecting against irritants, which, again, is just a dream for my sensitive skin!

I like to apply this to a freshly washed face before applying my make-up, as well as occasionally topping up my skin with some moisture at night if my face is feeling a bit dry and tight. 

It creates such a smooth canvas for make-up, and also helps give that glowy vibe, which I love. It keeps my face feeling hydrated all day long too, which is perfect if I'm on-the-go (not during lockdown, obviously) or shooting images all day long. 

All in all, this is best moisturizer/face cream that I've found for my sensitive skin. It's so super light and easy to use - it retails at around £40-£45, but I'd say it's 100% worth the price tag.




Evolve Beauty Daily Detox Facial Wash

Last but not least we have the Evolve Daily Detox Facial Wash

Now, although I normally just stick to using my Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil, a couple times a week, I like to throw this into the mix too.

This is a foaming facial wash that helps to detoxify and re-balance skin. It contains aloe vera, which is perfect for soothing and softening the skin, whilst also containing natural goji berry extract, which helps defend against pollution. 

I like to use this on no-make up days. It's perfect for just freshening and waking up the face in the morning. It's super gentle and delicate, which is great as, I normally find a lot of face washes can give my skin a bit of a bad reaction. It has a lovely light scent too - nothing too overly perfumed or harsh.

It's just a great product, that's easy to use and works great to just freshen up how your skin is feeling. I like to have an alternative to my oil cleanser, and this is perfect for that!

these moments away from you are heavy
weighted
like a tonne of bricks balanced on each shoulder
difficult to shake off

isolated 
alone
left only with my thoughts to keep me company
I long for the days where I could hold your hand and pour my heart out to you
my glass half empty, becoming a glass half full

it's the little things
I've noticed
like the way you make a cup of tea when I'm sad
or the way you look at me like no one else looks at me

I miss spending days in bed like it's the only place we ever need to be
and feeling your hands brush through my hair as I fall asleep
daydreaming about the future
laughing about the present

nothing right now can fill that void
nothing can compare to the feeling of home you give to me

it's just very heavy right now
this feeling
the feeling of missing you 
I don't ever want to be away from home again
ever

This Feeling Of Missing You


these moments away from you are heavy
