Backstreet Boys DNA Tour o2 arena London

Backstreet Boys DNA tour - London o2 arena

June 17th 2019

Hey Everyone 

Welcome back to the blog.

For today’s blog it’s all about last nights Backstreet Boys show at the o2 arena In London.

Now the European leg of the tour has been running for the last few weeks and I’ve seen a few pictures and videos but up until last night I’d managed to stay away from a lot of spoilers but what a show it was. 

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve seen the band live but this show was really something else. 2 hours of an amazing back catalogue and 26! Yes 26 years of memories live on stage. 

There’s so many memories I can say come from this band from music to shows but also to friendship. I have so many friends I’ve met along the way.

On every tour the Backstreet Boys come back with a different show. I think it’s true you don’t pay to see a concert you pay to a show and they never disappoint. Let me know below if you’ve seen the tour, what your favourite part was and if you have plans to see the show soon

Have a great week

Playing tourist in your own city vs getting out of town

Hey Everyone, 

Welcome back to the blog 

For today's blog lets talk travel. 

I live in London, there is so many different things to do and places to visit here which makes it usually always busy. I have found some amazing places that I love that are away from the normal places like to visit. 

London itself has so much history I find it really interesting just going on long walks especially down the River Thames. There are so many old and new buildings each with their own story to tell. Another way I love to use for exploring the city is on the river boats. You really do see some amazing views but also discover new places to visit that you wouldn't think of straight away to go to. 

There's so many things also around the country that are within reach to do, a few weeks ago whilst on a visit to Portsmouth to see a show I was lucky enough to have sometime the day after to just walk along the beach and have lunch in the sun and see some of the things that is on offer. It's always worth just grabbing a map or checking google maps to see whats near by when ever you have some spare time. I've often found the best places when I've not even been looking and this just a personal opinion but sometimes they can be more enjoyable than things that are advertised everywhere. 

On the flip side of this, from being in the city do you ever look to just escaping for a few days or even just for the day. The majority of journey's timed right give you a great amount of time even on a day trip to go and explore somewhere else in the UK. With the journey times up to Liverpool and Manchester for example just under two hours now it's very easy to grab some advance tickets and explore. 

Let me know below if you prefer planned holidays or out of the blue trips and where you like to visit.

SanDisk mobile storage

Hey Everyone 

So tonight’s blog is sponsored by Sandisk and I’m very excited to tell you about their new storage idea which is a game changer for transferring data off phones and iPads to computers and laptops. 

How many times have you been in the situation where you have items you want to back up or transfer to others and don’t have a cable to hand?

This is just a personal opinion but I am not a fan of backing things up to the cloud. I’ve never fully trusted it but with these new memory sticks you have a range of different storage options for photos, music and files to transfer between devices. 

The one featured is 32gb which is so much extra space, more on these you can find them over on Amazon.
Once you’ve downloaded the Sandisk ixpand flash drive and set it up you are all good to go with the extra storage space. 

Let me know below if you’ve tried these or would look to getting one to try.

Have a great weekend 

Love Holly

Body Scrub ideas

Body Scrub Ideas 

Hey Everyone 

So for tonight’s blog I thought I’d mix it up a bit and get some beauty products in the mix. 

So after going through all my shower gels(and throwing so many out with nearly empty bottles) I decided to look at some different brands and new products to use. I tend to stick to the same but wanted to try something new.

Whilst in Pink today I found these new shower scrubs. They retail at £15 each but also are on the deal of 2 for £22 which is what I got them on.

There’s a lot in the deal and some I will be going back for but these caught my eye.

Firstly they both smell amazing and my skin is super soft after testing out the Detox Scrub. I’m looking forward to seeing if it makes a difference to my skin. 

Let me know below if you’ve seen or have any of this range and what your thoughts are on using new products. Do you look for particular things or go for something completely different.

Thanks for reading 
Love Holly

Hollyb83 - Travel inspiration

Travel Inspiration 

Hey Everyone,

Welcome back to the blog

So for today's blog I thought I'd give you an insight in to me and how my blog came to be what it is.

It started off with theatre and then spread to everything else I enjoy to do. Between lifestyle, travel and fashion there are lots of things I enjoy writing about.

Starting off with travel, I love getting out a suitcase and planning where my next adventure will be. From travelling round the UK to wanting to jump on a plane it's a great feeling knowing your escaping for a while.
From places I've visited before to brand new places I've always got lists of places to cross off to visit. Even in London, this city especially has so many things to do even if you've lived here your whole life you will always find something different.
I think everyone can agree they all have a list of dream places they would love to visit.

My top 3 that I haven't visited yet are 

New York
I have a list of things for New York that is ever growing. Right at the top is to full fill a dream and see Wicked on Broadway. Along with a lot of tourist places to visit and shopping it is one I plan on getting booked soon. 

A world away from New York, this is one place I would love to visit on holiday and enjoy the endless beaches and crystal blue oceans. I've always loved taking pictures of sunsets and from pictures they look incredible here. 

I've seen so many incredible pictures of Santorini and have heard so many great things from friends that have visited that this is really high on my list to visit. 

It's really hard to actually choose a top 3 for this as the more time i spend looking at Pinterest the more places I want to travel too and see.

Let me know below where your top 3 travel destinations are 

Have a great rest of the week

The Superstars of Gymnastics -o2 arena

Superstars of Gymnastics 

Hey Everyone
Welcome back to the blog where this weekend the theme is gymnastics.
The Superstars of Gymnastics arrived back at The o2 arena in London where even before the shows started you knew from the atmosphere in the crowd you were in for a great day. 
Full of Gymnastics clubs and fans of all ages you could see so much admiration especially from the younger fans watching their idols knowing this is something are going to pursue. 

Both sessions had a fun element to them, all the gymnasts during the day had a choice of the golden buzzer which they could use before one of their events to double their scores. 

Some of my favourite performances came from watching the men take to the parallel bars and the women take to the beam. All the performances had something different in them and a lot of fun and humour. You could really see everyone was having a great time which in turn reflected in the responses from the audience.
The judging panel consisted of Simone Biles, Laurent Landi, Amy Tinkler, and Max Whitlock. It was great to see both Simone and Max perform in both sessions. Both of their performances were put together so well and received so well by the crowd. 

I’m already looking forward to next year and seeing this again. It’s always a great day out and really good for all Gymnastics fans. 

I hope you’ve enjoyed the blog and have a great weekend 

Love Holly
