    Fashion is not Style. And it is time you knew!

    I never refer to fashion on Hello it’s Hollie because I don’t dress for fashion I dress for style! Fashion is a fad, say crop tops, see-through jeans from top shop, choker necklaces. Style can’t be defined that easily because everyone has their own. And it is developing with you. I have the same style that I did when I was 14 but then my style was suited to a 14-year-old. Now it suits a 25-year-old. The best representation of style to me is my Oma (grandmother) she can wear a navy top and navy trousers and look great. The secret you may ask? She knows what suits her and…

    Lush-You Saved Me From Psoriasis

    I am going to take you back to November. (cue the wiggle effect screen) I am living the life of hell. I can’t tie my hair up, I can’t wear it down either. I scratch my head without even knowing I am doing it and I constantly have to brush the white flakes off my shoulders. I feel like my head is burning and itchy all the time and I am getting snappy with it. The reason for my hell – Psoriasis. My dad has it but until a year before this November neither had I really. I don’t know what triggered it. And in fact, I don’t ever really…

    Natural Make Up Must Haves

    Hi, So I am not a heavy makeup person. I only really wear foundation when I am going for a dinner or out for drinks. I am more of a BB Cream girl and I love a dewy natural look. I have decided to open up my make up bag and give you an insight into what I think are the best products for a natural look. It wont take you long to realise that all the make up in my bag is from Dior, this is because I love their products. They really work with my skin and I love the natural yet flawless look that they create. So…

    Wine, Dine and Sunshine at Harvey Nichols

    Hello, I would like to apologise at the opening of this post for the fact that I can’t seem to be able to remember to take a photo of my main course at any meal as I get too excited. That said I did get some great photos to show off the great summer menu at Harvey Nichols.   To start you get the chosen cocktail of a Martini Royale! Which as you can see from the photo below looks great and it tastes even better. To start I chose the Ratatouille Tart with Halloumi and Pesto. I love halloumi so this wasn’t a hard choice. I apologise again for…

    Hollie and The Ivy

    I got the opportunity to work in London last week – which I will be writing a few blogs on what I got up to outside of work but the biggest and best highlight was the chance to see my longest standing best friend – my second cousin, born 2 months apart we have never known life without each other. We had to decide on where to go for food. I decided that Annie was the one to choose see as she lives there I left it in her trusted hands. If i remember correctly (it was a few weeks ago, I like to plan in advance – I love…

    How to Eat in Madrid: Mercado de San Miguel and Plaza Mayor

    Hello. Well hopefully you will have been following my recent trip to Madrid on Instagram but if not then I am going to put as much information as possible about what we got up to and what we ate along the way. When we arrived on our first day we were the typical hungry travellers that were straight off the first flight out of Edinburgh. Once we had been to our hotel to drop off our bags we headed to the market: Mercado de San Miguel. This is the place of dreams if you are a fan of food and especially if you are a fan of Spanish food –…

    City Walking

    Hello, I am going to just come straight out with it. I have the worst feet when I comes to shoes and comfort. I struggle to find a pair of shoes that I can wear all day while walking around. When you add the factor of 30C heat it is not making the choice easier. I am on the countdown to a 4 day trip to Madrid with Daniel. I know already it will be full of tapas, wine, walking, shopping and the sun (well hopefully, coming from Scotland you don’t have much faith in the weather) I know that when all of these factors come together, the first thing…
