Pink & Practical: A Pink Parcel Review


You will all know by now that I am a huge fan of a subscription boxes, I mean who doesn't love getting post. It is actually one of my favourite feelings! It's the little things, right? In the past I have loved being subscribed to beauty boxes like Birchbox, but have never really looked into the other sort of amazing wonders that you can get delivered straight to your door, and boy have I been missing out! From kawaii toys and spa boxes, to packages of fitness clothes and kids craft activities - there really is a box for everyone out there, and today I am going to share a box I've been sent that I think alllll you ladies out there are going to love - introducing Pink Parcel.

DIY Motivational Canvas Banner


Whilst out and about recently, I have been seeing a lot of canvas banners for sale with gorgeous inspiring slogans and illustrations on them, and I'm sure you've seen them too! Aren't they just the cutest? Looking at them longingly one day, I suddenly realised that I could probably easily make my very own personal banner, unique to me, and the idea for this DIY was born. After a bit of trial and error, I have come up with a super quick and easy way that we can all make the banners of our dreams, without breaking the bank, and I can't wait to share it with you. Motivation here we come! 

Chats with James: Creativity, Proving Yourself & Unexpected Inspiration


When planning blog posts it is easy to get into a cycle of hauls and favourites posts, without stopping to think about what you are creating. That's not to say that those posts aren't great fun to put together, and hopefully lovely for you to read, it's just that sometimes it is good to mix things up and get inspired by trying out new ideas. So, with that in mind, today that is exactly what we are going to do with a first for The Art of Being Holly - it's time for an interview. Here with us today, to provide the ultimate creative inspiration, is musician, artist and very good friend of mine, James. A bundle of fun, James is the definition of artistic and I know if anyone can help us all to make the most of our creativity then it is definitely him. Enjoy!

Style File: For the love of Vintage


Something that you may not know about me is that shopping for vintage homewares and clothing is one of my all time favourite things to do. Take me to an antique market or charity shop and I am in my absolute element! Over the years I have collected quite a few gorgeous, one-off pieces from various places, but I'm not sure any quite compare to my latest find. Enter the summer dress of dreams. Yes, you did hear right! I think summer is finally on the way and I know exactly what I am going to be spending my long summer days wearing. Any guesses?
