Say 'Hello' to my trusty sidekick- Ocean Salt.

This little pot of sea salt, lime and avocado heaven has rescued my face. It is rich in minerals and is perfect for scrubbing away any dead skin. Now, I'm not usually one for scrubs, but I absolutely love this.

I use this scrub just 1-2 times a week and have seen such a clear improvement: a lot less spots and redness. I apply it to a damp face whilst in the shower and scrub my T-zone, around my nose and my chin, the main areas where I tend to get oily. My skin loves the stuff and I always feel like I get the deepest clean possible. The fine sea salt removes any dirt and leaves my skin feeling plump and polished. The scrub is surprisingly soft and not at all harsh. I think this is because of the avocado used, which also gives it a great, refreshing scent. Once I feel as though I have thoroughly given my face a good scrub, I simply just wash it away with water. Using this in the mornings is the perfect wake-me-up. I do however, only use the scrub once or twice a week as I don't want to dry out or be too rough on my skin.

You can also use this to scrub your body to remove any dry skin but, I haven't found it to be quite as good at doing that. I think a harsher scrub would be best used on the arms and legs, whilst a softer scrub like this one is best used on the face.

Lush Cosmetics have definitely pulled this one out the bag for me. It has become one of my essentials and I have already repurchased this twice and will soon have emptied this one. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Chanel is one of my favourite brands, so recently when going through my make up collection, stumbling across this was a wonderful surprise.

This highlighter has great coverage and feels silky and soft on the skin. It illuminates dark areas very well. It has a brush and you twist the wand for the product to rise up through it. The brush is good and doesn't malt in anyway. I like to apply it under my eyes and down the bridge of my nose. It does a good job at brightening up those areas and catches the light nicely too.

One down side to this is that there is actually very little product inside the packaging, meaning that you either have to use it very sparingly or you'll be running out very quickly. It's a brilliant highlighter but there isn't enough product for the £27.00 price mark.

I have been loving these trousers lately which I picked up from H&M for just £19.99. They are so comfy and easy to wear - high waisted with a zip and button fastening. They hug perfectly round the waist and I love styling them with fitted tops and heeled shoes. However, they also work great with oversized tops and flats for a more casual look. I think these will be coming in very handy during the warmer months!

Let me know how you'd style these!

On a recent shopping trip, I picked up this gorgeous paisley waistcoat, new in, at Topshop. It immediately caught my eye. I saw it first on a mannequin and loved how it was styled with a simple white gypsy top and a trilby. I love the colours in it. They are quite unusual - a turquoisey green and blue - for a paisley print.

I decided to style it with this long white maxi top from Forever 21. I love the way that both items are long in length - they worked great with my high heeled boots. It created an illusion that I was much taller than I actually am haha! I created waves in my hair and wore MAC's Kinda Sexy. I wanted to create a kind of Boho-chic look and really liked the outcome.

This outfit might be simple but the waistcoat definitely draws your attention. What do you think?

Colab Dry Shampoo comes in 5 different scents: Rio, New York, Paris, London and Tokyo. I recently picked up London after waiting and waiting and waiting to try this product out - now it's finally mine eeek.

The best way to use it is to spray from a distance and massage/brush through the hair. It's great at diminishing grease and the formula is completely invisible. The packaging is pretty and simple, it looks nice on your dressing table. I think I was just drawn to the black on this one...you can never have too much black!

I found that this works great at making my hair feel like first day hair again but is also good is just want to add a bit of texture to your hair or a little added thickness.

I'm excited to try out more scents - this one is very classic and soft. Each bottle is £3.50 - bargain pricing! So far, I'm loving it and it definitely does the job it sets out to do.

This over-sized denim jacket is a vintage Levis from Pop Boutique. I love the light denim wash - perfect for spring/summer.The oversized style gives the look a bit of an edge and also means it's really comfy.

My trousers are black flares from Topshop. I like how they add a minimalist look to the trend and also make me feel like I'm off That 70's Show haha! I think that they elongate my legs nicely too, helping to make me look a little taller - which is always a bonus.

My boots are from New Look - they are a classic Chelsea boot and go perfectly with any kind of outfit. (If you follow me on Instagram @_hollywhite, you will now that these never leave my feet!)

My bag is a white canvas tote which I bought from Ebay. It's easy to carry around and adds a bit of a relaxed feel to the outfit.

This top is a lilac long sleeve t shirt from Missguided. I love the pastel colour and think it looks great tucked into trousers. It's a really nice colour that works well with my very black, white and grey wardrobe.

Let me know, what are you loving about the 70's trend?

Recently I have been loving this mustard-yellow colour. It's such a springy shade and looks great with minimalist outfits.

My mac is one that I picked up from a vintage fair not too long ago. I had to buy it when I saw it! The coat is very oversized on me but I think works well with a fitted outfit underneath.

I styled the mac with monochromatic colours to create a simple look. I wore my grey h&m jumper along with my black Primark culottes. I added my black boots and tied my hair up in a top knot.

The look is super easy, but that bright mustard colour brings it all to life!

This combination reminds me of a shoot that Cara Delevigne did with Topshop during the winter. Have a look HERE. I adored this look on her, so thought that I could try to use it as inspiration!

This lovely leopard print jumper is from River Island. It's perfect for spring time due to it's cropped sleeves and loose style. I love the pattern especially against the colour of the skirt. It has a bit of rock-chick vibe to it and looks great with a red lip.

My skirt is from Zara. It's an a-line skirt, so is nice and fitted around the waist - giving you a great look when tucking tops in. The bright red is vibrant and eye catching and once again matches the leopard print wonderfully. Pair this with some leather boots and some cat eye sunglasses and you're ready to go!

This beautiful navy cowl neck jumper is by Topshop Boutique. I love this jumper - lovely and classy but also has extra long sleeves which gives it an added cosiness. The material feel really nice and luxurious too! The colour is great to style with a bit of black and white.

These white high waisted shorts are from Missguided. They make the blue colours in this outfit more defined whilst also adding a very clean style to the look. I really like the high waisted style, it's super flattering.

These metallic ballet pumps are from H&M and are new in. I love the metallic trend; grab some of these if you can. They are a great way to work a bit of texture (if that's what you'd call it) into an outfit.

My satchel was bought in the Topshop sale a couple months back. The bright blue adds a quirky look to the classic satchel bag, which I love and contrasts nicely with my navy jumper. The two different shades of blue make this look just that little bit different.

On my lips is MAC Red Lipstick. It has a satin finish and is one of my favourite go-to's.

The skins section offers cases for laptops and sky remote controls as well as phones. Not just iPhones too, you can select your brand eg. Samsung, HTC and find your desired model.

This is an eye colour which I am constantly drawn to in my collection. It's a golden peachy colour with shimmer that can both easily be applied with your fingers or with a fluffy brush. I love the colour simply on it's own but it can also look great with a colour like 'Cork' blended through the crease. The colour is build able and super long lasting. The only downside to this product is that it can be slightly difficult to blend but still has a lovely cream application. The colour looks great against my blue eyes, but I think it would be lovely shade for all eye colours.

I love the packaging. It's simple and chic- gives you a very generous amount of product.

MAC 217 - This brush is my go to. It's perfect for both applying eye shadow to the lid and blending. It's lovely and fluffy - creating a soft look.

Body Shop Eye Shadow Blender Brush - This brush is seriously old, but a great part of my collection. I like to use this is blend colour into my crease.

MAC 209 - This brush is great for adding tiny details. I like to use this to apply almost an eye-liner-like line of colour to the eye, close to my lash line.

Real Techniques Detailer Brush
 - This brush is the one I use most under the bottom lash line to create a smokier eye look and add even more colour.

SHIRT- This navy and white stripe shirt is from Zara. I love stripes as they are so easy to style but can add a bit of pattern to a simple outfit.
DRESS - The dress which i have styled underneath the shirt is from ASOS. The lace detail is beautiful and adds a feminine feel.
BOOTS- New Look.
LIPS- On my lips is MAC Lady Danger. A super matte orangey toned red!

Recently I was out shopping, with no real intention of picking much up. I wandered into Primark, which I haven't been into in a pretty long while, and suddenly found myself in awe of the super low prices. I had completely forgotten about the bargains you can find in there!

That is when I picked up these. They were hanging up in the wrong area of the shop but immediately caught my attention. IT WAS FATE. They were in my size and everything! Best of all though, these were only £3.00. (£3.00!!)

Since buying them I can't seem to tear myself away from them. They are extremely comfortable and I love the way they hang. I love the look they create and are great for tucking in tops and jumpers. They look both great with boots and flats and are absoloutley perfect for spring. I LOVE THEM *heart eyes emoji*

The Tangle Teezer- one of the most popular hair styling products out there, but the one product that I have been without for so long. I've been telling myself for years now 'Holly you need to buy a tangle teezer..' or 'Next time I'll buy one'... but unfortunately I never got around to doing so. It wasn't until my Mum surprised me with this beauty that my wish finally came true.

*does Marks and Spencer's advert voice* 
This isn't just any Tangle Teezer, this is a Lulu Guinness Tangle Teezer. Yes, that's right. One of my favourite designers has collaborated with them to produce the hair brush of my dreams. The beautiful classic red lip print and the monochrome stripes are absoloutley gorgeous.

In terms of being a hairbrush - it is also absoloutley gorgeous! It banishes knots from my hair completely and leaves it silky and soft. It is definitely worth the price tag. This is also the compact version meaning that it is easy to carry around with me in my bag for hair emergencies when I'm out (talking gale force winds here people...)

CK One Liquid Eyeliner Marker 700 Good GirlI found this eye liner to be very intriguing with it being a brown shade. I thought that the colour might be nice to use against my skin tone and light eye lashes. Unfortunately I did find this liner to be quite watery almost. However, I liked the colour pay off and the brush was soft and flexible, making it pretty easy to use. (I'm not the biggest eye liner user in the first place - maybe one of you could try it out and then let me know what you think?)

CK One Eye Shadow 720 EvolvedThis eye shadow fits into my collection very well. It is a muted brown/taupe colour with a shimmery finish. It looks lovely with blue eyes and i like that the shimmer is not too much - it's just right. I will definitely be using this to create a few looks in the future.

Cocoa Cashmere is a British knitwear brand, designed in London. I love the brands edgy and colourful characteristics. They recently contacted me asking for me to create some key looks for Spring/Summer 2015, so here we go!

The first look out of the two which I created features Cocoa's Boxy Jumper in Grey. This jumper is a perfect staple for any minimalist wardrobe. Grey is a super versatile colour and transitions great from the colder to the warmer seasons. I styled the jumper with black flared trousers to add a 70's vibe to this casual and understated look. I thought mules and hoop earrings were the perfect accessories for really creating a unique look. And finally, I'd finish it off with a subtle nude lip.

The second look includes this gorgeous Dip Dye Poncho. (YES, ponchos are back!)  I styled this up with white ripped jeans, the thing every girl needs this summer, and a slim grey coat for cooler days. I thought that the grey tassel bag added to the relaxed vibe that the poncho creates, whilst the peep toe boots give you the perfect opportunity to paint your nails a co-ordinating bright baby blue.

This here is the reformulated Advanced Night Repair by Estee Lauder. However, for me, nothing much seems to have changed. It's only slightly thinner than the original.

This serum helps hydrate your skin as well as repair any damage that may have been done. I find that it is brilliant at healing any spot scars I may have as well as evening out the texture of my skin.

I tend to use the only ever so often as sometimes I find that if I use it too regularly then I begin to break out.

Overall though, this product is definitely worth the hype. Give it a try if you can and tell me in the comments if you know of any cheaper alternatives...

I feel like Knits, Crochet and Tassels are going to be very in this year as I seem to be seeing them everywhere I go. One item that really caught my eye was this beautiful knitted vest from H&M (Yes, H&M again, I swear this isn't on purpose..). This top came in a beige colour as well as a powder pink. After loving both colours, I went to my trusty Mum for advice and she immediately said I should go for the beige. So I did.

This trend is super quirky and unique. I love the way that this piece combines all seasonal clothing together. It's knitted to keep you warm but sleeveless to keep things nice and airy. I love pairing this top with a black midi skirt and boots. I also think that this would look great with a silky black bomber jacket..(makes mental note to buy bomber jacket asap).  It's definitely an item you should try out - even if you are a little sceptical!

Let me start by saying just how much I adore Topshop Make Up packaging. Those polka dots are just the prettiest thing!

A while ago, I was on the hunt for a brown eye pencil to help add definition to my pale eyes (since black can sometimes be too harsh). I wandered into Topshop and found myself loving the concept of these Kohls which, seemed perfect for blending out - my desired look - so I grabbed the shade Sable and went on my way.

This is a pretty  good product to say the least. It's soft, creamy and doesn't drag. The pigmentation is great and is perfect for creating a smoky look. All for just £4.00! The only downside is that I do find this to be quite difficult to remove, but it is a good long lasting product.

If you're on the hunt for a new eye pencil, I highly recommend you have a look at Topshop's collection.
