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

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

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

Decorating Ideas

Decorating Ideas

Hey Everyone

Welcome back to the blog. So recently I've been spending more time looking into the world of Pinterest. 
There are so many different ideas on there for so many different things. On my saved boards I've already planned a lot of holidays and my travel bucket list of places that keep springing up which I would love to visit. 

Other boards I have been looking into is planning how to decorate a dream house and ideas for different rooms. 
Have you ever looked at Pinterest for ideas?, I think everyone has ideas on colour schemes and what they would like but after looking for ideas I think I have redeveloped some that I already had. 

I've always loved decorating, from choosing the colour to painting the rooms. I find it very chilling especially on bigger wall spaces. One day I do want to choose all my own colour schemes and really look forward to actually seeing my ideas come together. 

Where do you look for your furniture? I go a couple of different ways on this by either looking for a theme or picking up things when I see them to make them fit with different ideas. 

If you are on Pinterest and would like to come and follow my design ideas click on this link Holly's Pinterest 

Let me know below what design ideas you have at the moment and what projects you are working on 

Have a great week

White Light vs Yellow Light

White light vs Yellow light

Hey Everyone

So today’s blog is talking about the difference between White light and Yellow light and finding out if you know the difference.

Now for many years I’ve had a range of different migraines some easy to deal with and some not. 
Although I now have an answer for what can trigger it I still try and help with other factors. 

A few years ago at a routine eye appointment I was offered the chance to change my lenses to blue light lenses. They change what we see as white light back to natural yellow and with my prescription have been brilliant. 
Now I don’t need them all the time but when I do the difference is so good.

Looking into it more white light is around more and more now. Some shops are so bright I have at times left. With people using computers, tablets and phones so much now I have to ask who realises how much white light they subject their eyes too.

Some people are fine with it but i personally struggle when I’m tired as my eyes really strain and this makes it worse.
I’ve turned on night shift on my phone which when the sun sets turns the brightness down so you are looking at a more natural light.

A few weeks ago I ordered these amazing glasses from Sarah’s Day on Instagram they also have blue light lenses.
They don’t have my prescription in yet but even so they’ve become great for using when working.

It’s something to look into as it can really change how you feel and operate.
Let me know below your thoughts and if there are things you do to help keep natural light around you more.

Have a great weekend
