Beauty and the Beast - the Primark challenge

Hey Guys

Happy Friday 
Hope you've all had a great week so far. If your reading this from the USA Happy thanksgiving and if your out and about shopping today on Black Friday I hope its all going ok.

So todays blog has a slightly different twist to it..... There is a Vlog to go with it come check it out here Beauty and the Beast Vlog I'm venturing in to a few more vlogs so hit subscribe and keep an eye out for more

So on to what has become the Beauty and the Beast Primark challenge

Earlier this year Primark released a small range around the time the movie came out. First came Chip purses and mugs which for a long time you just couldn't find anywhere. It took many visits to track them down. For one of the chip purses I remember seeing one left on a hook in the shoe department.

Next up came Mrs Potts the money box. I wasn't expecting to find her when I did. The till point in the store was closed but I spotted them and even made the security guard laugh when he told me the till was closed but waved me through when I said I just wanted Mrs Potts.

Mrs Potts the Tea Pot i clocked after I'd already paid a few weeks later after seeing lots of boxes being bought out and added to the display. This one did well as I was on the way to the theatre at the time she's even seen Flashdance.

Last but not least for this blog, Cogsworth.... After a very long wait and countless visits to try and get him the rumours started flying yesterday that he was being released for Black Friday I knew an early visit was due to the shops this morning. 

I don't think I've been in a store that early but firstly finding it stupidly quiet and then finding loads of Cogsworths it was a very successful morning. Only thing I will add is be careful adding a battery into the clock as its not easy. 

Hope you all have a great weekend

A bit of a winter round up

Hey Everyone,

Hope you've all had a great week
Who's ready to watch Children in Need tonight? I've just donated to the Ben Adams Flashdance Water Drop, if you've seen the show you won't want to miss Ben having a go at the water drop scene and they are so close to their target now click here to donate

So the past couple of week have been fairly busy, its that time for Christmas shopping and this year I've made a good start which is not like me at all. There's some great things out at the moment for present ideas. I've been continuing my Primark hunt for Cogsworth the clock from Beauty the Beast. I thought Chip was a challenge but Cogsworth is coming up a close second. 

Primark has some lovely things out at the moment I am totally in love with the whole Saffron Barker collection check it out here Saffron Barker Primark collection For all bloggers and vloggers defo go check it out for some great items. I think I've got my eyes on well over half the collection.

Theres also some great Disney items out if you are a fan of the Mighty Ducks this top is a must have. Also one for the must have list are these adorable Mickey and Minnie lights at the top of the blog.

Last weekend was a visit to Cineworld to see the new Thor movie. Not only in 3D but on the new 4DX screen which will now forever be known as ThorDX. It was a great film from start to finish and you completely feel in the action with the 4DX seats so if you get the chance to book a film on them I totally recommend it.

Earlier this week I finally got to see Kinky Boots in London. Its been on my list for ages check out my review here Kinky Boots Review the show was a lot of fun and if your looking for something to book for Christmas I really recommend it for a great night out.

Hope you all have a great rest of the week

Love Holly

Colour Change

Hey Guys,

Hope you've all had a great week. 
It's Saturday evening but I'm staying in tonight currently watching the many fireworks displays that are going across the park where I live.
So tonight I thought I'd give you some insight to my new pictures I posted on instagram yesterday click here to follow me on instagram

So for a while I've been thinking of changing my hair colour. I tend to have the colour done every 6 months as thats when its at its most noticeable and annoys me. Before I went to Vegas and LA this year I had some blonde bits put in which really looked nice when I got back and had caught the sun. Since September my hair decided it was time for a growth spurt and I know it's time for a trip to the hairdressers when my fringe can be tied back. 

Since my hair appointment was booked Ive been looking for different ideas and kept coming back to one colour. It miles away from what I would normally go for but I feel like I've been hiding away recently as I've not been happy with it. 
I really feel like I've needed a bit of a confidence boost recently and even from the amazing comments from everyone in the hairdressers yesterday to all the likes the pictures have had its really boosted how I've felt.

I'm so happy with the way it's come out as I really didn't expect it to take as well as it did but I love it.

Thanks so much for checking out the blog and all the nice comments on the Vlogs so far. I'm hoping to get another one up soon. Lots coming up in the next few weeks so keep checking back

Have a great week 

Love Holly
