Okay, well today's post might seem a little random, but hear me out. I was absoloutley blown away by the response to my #BareAllBePale project and couldn't believe the impact that it made. I have decided that I didn't want it to just end there - I want to use it to talk about anything that has ever made me, you, anyone insecure and hope that it can encourage people, just like the original blog post did, to just open up and be themselves.

Today, i want to talk about my eye lashes, which may seem like the most ridiculous thing ever but well, i'm still going to talk about it haha.

Now, over the past few days, so many people have commented on my eyelashes: 'You're so lucky' 'They're amazing!' 'Magic', but, honestly, they have never felt that amazing to me and to be honest the only 'magic' there is a little mascara... (which usually ends up all over my face whilst I try to cover the blonde roots of my lashes - it never works.)

From the age of about 10 I've been wearing mascara. I know that might seem extremely young, but when you're eyelashes are pretty much transparent, mascara becomes your saviour. I remember I was in Year 6 at primary school and one day I just suddenly noticed that everyone else had these gorgeous dark lashes and that mine just seemed, well, none existent. I already felt pretty inadequate just as a person at that age and always seemed to be like the odd one out, so when I started thinking about my looks, it was really quite upsetting.

Now, I can't remember if I'd talked to my mum about how I felt or I had just raided her make up bag but some how some way, I began to wear a little mascara. It was so nice to just have a little boost of confidence and actually see what my eyes really really looked like. If you have watched any of my YouTube videos then you've probably seen the way that my eyes just kind of transform into something else once I have mascara on - at that age it almost did feel magical. Unfortunately however, that didn't really last long. It was definitely against the primary school's rules (lol #rebel) to wear any kind of make up, so teachers would go ballistic when they'd see me walking the corridors with my mascara coated lashes. Actually, there was one teacher (not naming names but if you went to primary school with me you can probably guess haha) that used to make me take it all off with a paper towel and water - yeah I know! That's gotta be like child cruelty or something right? ...

Anyway, yeah that really made me feel isolated. I felt like the ugly duckling and I feel like that has definitely still stuck with me even until today. Obviously, then came my high school years where I was definitely feeling a lot more rebellious (seriously? how bad ass am I?). I was much more able to stick up for my pale features and say 'hell no, if you get to see everyone else's eye lashes, you get to see mine too.' It of course didn't always work, but by Year 11 I think people just give up trying to tell you what to look like.

In about Year 9 I also started filling in my eyebrows...but I'll save that for a different post or maybe even a video... because yeah that's a v funny story.

The point of this post is to say that mascara used to be the only way I could feel even the tiniest little bit good about myself. I don't know whether it's just because I've been through hell and back recently, but nowadays I don't feel like I care too much any more. I often love creating make up looks and leaving my eyes mascara-less and I think it's really important that we don't have to rely on mascara, a make up product, to feel okay. Yes, sometimes I sit bare-faced and cry asking 'WHY CRUEL WORD WHY?' but you know, I just get on with it.

This one is for the guys and gals who have fair features, that have always felt self concious and rely on things like make up to make themselves feel okay. Try and do what I do: Be experimental, think of yourself as a blank canvas, think about catwalk models where they have pale faces and white eyebrows, think creatively and don't hate yourself.

It's kind of empowering that I feel okay to go out without mascara sometimes and to not have to worry that people will think that I've burnt my eyelashes off with a barbecue. I guess, we just slowly learn to except ourselves.

So, if you're like me, I hope this helped and if not, I hope it gave you a little insight into the way that my so called 'magical' eye lashes have made me feel over time. Sometimes the thing that you're jealous of someone for, is their weakness.

Let me be the first to say, I really do not have the figure for this jumpsuit - I'm way too lumpy and bumpy haha. However, I really liked the look of it so thought, you know what, why not try it out?

If you know me then you know the only kind of tight, figure hugging clothing I tend to wear is my Joni Jeans... but, there was something about this jumpsuit that really made me want to style it up!

I've always complained about my constant food baby belly and to be honest, I don't find this jumpsuit to be that flattering when it comes to that haha. However, I really looooove the shape. That 70s vibe is just soo cool and I think if you got the boobage for the top half (which I totally don't lol) then you would look sensational. The colour is also something unusual for me, I usually choose black items or white, so trying out something different was kind of exciting. I actually like this camel colour in contrast with my hair and I think it looks good with my blue eyes too. Despite this piece being something completely out of my comfort zone, it was fun to style and sometimes it's nice to try out something different!

MissPap have got it going on with these sassy jumpsuits at the moment though- so if you're feeling like giving one a go, go grab one quick and use my code HOLLY10 for 10% off!

Hey, did you know that I like white? Of course you did...

When I chose this Luxemme co-ord from the site and it arrived on my doorstep (or well, into my hands from the post man), oh my god, did my heart skip a beat. It's bloody gorgeous! Now, I will admit that this outfit may now have a few make up marks and a suspicious stain since I wore it on my night out the other week (again, apologies if you saw me..haha) but I still adore it and it will definitely be resurrected after a good wash!

I'm really feeling white outfits at the mo, especially with my fabulous white heels (which also unfortunately have a mark on them from another wild night out...oops). I chose to just go super simple here and let the co-ord do all the talking. I love the lace detail and the fit is just lovely and super flattering. Again, I am loving my hair tucked behind my ears at the moment and just think it looks simple and chic- love love love!

I have to say, that although I wore this co-ord on a night out, it would also be perfect for everyday with some tights and boots or especially a wedding or special occasion. It's pretty versatile if you ask me!

Let me know how you would style this co-ord? and also if you have experienced some wild nights out lately haha!

Loves to you alll you fab lot!

I won't keep you in the dark any longer, I am very very very excited about this post! eeeep!
I was recently contacted by Links Of London (who? little ol' me? Oh my god!) to take part in their Narrate Your Style Campaign (is this really happening?). The Links Of London Narrative Collection is a contemporary combination of modern pendants, bracelets and rings which can all be engraved to add a personal touch- how lovely is that? They kindly asked me to choose a piece of jewellery that I liked and then to choose what I wanted to be engraved onto said chosen piece. After mooching through their site here is what I came up with...

Of course, as a little tribute to this past year and the surreal success of my blog at the moment, I chose to have the words 'Simple Things' engraved. I wanted to chose something personal and unique to me and I think that 'Simple Things' really represents everything that I stand for. The piece of jewellery I chose was the Narrative Sterling Silver Bracelet and oh me oh my, it is incredibly gorgeous. The bracelet is sleek and simple - fitting perfectly with my style and I'm so so happy with the choices I made. Every time I look down at my wrist, I'll be reminded of my blog, you guys and everything that I've achieved and that makes me feel, as Beyonce would say, so full

The people at Links Of London (who are probably now, some of my new fav people!) also kindly sent me a £50 ASOS voucher for me to spend and create an outfit to go with my new piece of bling *squeals*. I chose this simple and chic black bodycon dress, these black leather heels and this cute zip clutch - I didn't want to draw any attention away from my beaut bracelet, of course!

I think the fact that I went with a simple outfit really sums up why I chose my engraving to say 'Simple Things' and ties everything together perfectly. I'm all about the little things in life and have always thought that simple is best. The pieces that Links Of London make are truly beautiful and this collection is just lovely. If you're looking for a new accessory or even a gift for someone special, then I highly recommend you go have a look at this collection!

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek! I can't even believe it. October last year, I was a complete mess, everything was falling apart and if I'm really honest, it kind of looked like the end of my life was there and then. October this year is going to be totally different though, thank god! Yesterday, I spent the majority of my day crying...not in a bad way though...they were totally happy tears. I found out that I have been short listed in the #BloggersBlogAwards and I am in so much shock. I'm nominated for Up & Coming Fashion Blogger and oh me... oh my... *starts crying again*

In October I'm going to head down to Leeds, meet so many fabulous blogging peeeeps and know that I've come so far to be there (I'll also be very very giddy!). I'm going to get to meet the lovely Phases Of Robyn, The Goodowl, Avenue De Sophie and so so many more babes that are nominated. I just can't wait!

I think this post, more than anything, is just a bit of reflection. I mean, I could have just given up last October and said that I didn't want to try anymore, but I didn't. I told myself that I'd live and I'd be successful even without college or the normal things everyone else was doing... and now look at me, I'M BLOODY NOMINATED FOR AN AWARD *squeals*.

I'm totally crying whilst typing this hahaha, get a grip Hol!

But seriously, I just want to say thank you. Thank you so much to every one who voted for me and I hope that you're as excited as I am for October. I really couldn't do any of this without your support.

If you want to vote for me in the shortlist, here's the link - http://www.teapartybeauty.com/bloggersblogawards-shortlist/ - it would mean the world to me!

I'm taking part in La Redoute's Capsule Wardrobe Campaign - here's all of my looks!

Over the past 5 days, you have seen me style this fabulous shirt in five different ways and here they are all together. I'm going to give you a little run down of my thoughts behind each outfit and the occasion for which I would wear them. I hope you enjoy!



1. Working Girl

When I thought about creating this outfit, I pictured myself working in a city, strutting my way to my incredible job, picking up my morning coffee and haling taxis. Every girl wants to look the part at work but also likes the keep things as stylish as possible - this is totally how I would do it. I styled the shirt a long with my H&M pencil skirt, my Pretty Little Thing coat, my white heels and vintage earrings. I think monochrome is the best way to go when it comes to work wear - it always looks super sophisticated.



2. Every Day

This is look suitable for everyday wear. The cute peter pan collar works perfectly with the soft pink trench and the whole outfit is nice enough to look good but still be super comfy for running errands. I chose to wear my Topshop jeans to add a little pop of colour and my heeled Chelsea boots help to add a bit of excitement to the look. When choosing an everyday outfit, picking something that is going to be comfy but also something that's going to be nice and stylish too is a great way to go.


3. Girly Girl

This ended up being one of my favourite looks. The shirt already has that girly vibe about it so I knew I had to make myself feel a little like a princess with this look. Picture me in a field picking flowers and singing to animals and you'll get what I'm going for! I styled the shirt here along with my ASOS pink midi and my ASOS pointed heels. Even if you're not a 'girly girl' you can create a look like this just by adding a little pink colour just like I've done here.


4. Bad Ass

Despite this shirt being pretty feminine, I wanted to create a look that would appeal to you rebels out there. With this look I envisioned Cat Woman and biker gals and grabbed for my ASOS skinny trousers and pointy heels. This look would be perfect for a day on the town and can easily be transitioned into an evening outfit. I think black is a great colour when it comes to creating more 'edgy' outfits and even if you're styling a feminine item like this shirt, it can really work.


5. Comfy and Classy

I thought about the comfiest item that I owned and DUNGAREES immediately sprung to mind. However, I didn't want to make this look too slouchy so slipping on my Topshop pointed flats adds a bit of class back to the outfit and nicely contrasts with the oversized dungarees - a perfect look for a lazy day and chilling with friends. When styling a shirt more comfortably than the usual 'super formal' I think it's nice to still keep your look quite chic and clean looking.

Now I've done work wear, every day, girl and bad-ass. In what other way could I possibly style this shirt?... Yes, that's it! Comfy and cosy!

It's no doubt that this outfit makes me look like a giant toddler... but I shall not lie, it was bloody comfy. There's also no doubt that dungarees have made a comeback so I most definitely had to style my lovely La Redoute shirt along with them.

This outfit is pretty basic, but the pretty peter pan collar on the shirt and the pointed flats give it that little element of class which I like. So, I suppose I should actually say it's  'Comfy and Classy!'

As much as shirts are worn formally, you can always dress one down like this and it makes you realise just how versatile shirts/blouses really are!

I'm taking part in La Redoute's Capsule Wardrobe Campaign - here's Look 4!

When I chose this shirt to style for the campaign, I did begin to question, 'wait, how am I going to make this look badass?!' and well I gave it my best shot right here...

Here I decided to turn the shirt's girly vibe on it's head and go totally 'biker chic' or 'cat woman esque' haha, how else can i describe it?! I styled the shirt underneath my black and white polka dot jumper from Mango, allowing only the collar to pop through to add that tiny 'feminine' touch. I whacked on these skinny trousers from ASOS, which make me feel like I'm about to jump on a motor cycle and zoom off into the distance (that would never happen, but ya know) and also grabbed my new favourite heels to add that classy feelin'. Adding my bomber jacket at the end was the perfect finishing touch and makes me feel like a complete badass...even though I wouldn't hurt a fly...

If you were going to try and make this shirt look 'bad ass', how would you go about it?

I styled the shirt underneath my black and white polka dot jumper from Mango, allowing only the collar to pop through to add that tiny 'feminine' touch. I whacked on these skinny trousers from ASOS, which make me feel like I'm about to jump on a motor cycle and zoom off into the distance (that would never happen, but ya know) and also grabbed my new favourite heels to add that classy feelin'. Adding my bomber jacket at the end was the perfect finishing touch and makes me feel like a complete badass...even though I wouldn't hurt a fly...

If you were going to try and make this shirt look 'bad ass', how would you go about it?
