As you may have seen I’ve been blogging daily… This is because I’m having surgery next week and I’m not sure how long I’ll have a painkiller induced mind for (away with the fairies)
I thought I’d keep writing to I dunno keep myself busy.
So today I thought I’d have a chat about some things that are my all-time favourite things
The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe is my favourite books from my childhood. It was so magical and I’m glad they then made it into The Chronicles of Narnia. Over the last couple of years I discovered the wonderful poet Erin Hanson. So I love flickering through the pages and relate.
These 3 films are a bit old school but I love them and have probably watched them enough to say the whole film word for word.
So random that my favourite food is chippy, sausage, sprouts and chocolate. Obviously not all at the same time.
While searching for a pic of my fave male and female actors there they were stood together and it suddenly dawned on me they were in Mamma Mia together. I think they are bloody wonderful.
My favourite animal did used to be a pig as I was growing up. But over the last 20 years I have loved sheep. I would love one as a pet, but would need a big field for him and then some friends so he didn’t feel lonely 😂
You can kind of guess what my favourite colour is… I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed but I’m half way there.
Hope you’ve enjoyed finding out what makes me happy no matter what.
For the past 3 months I have been subscribed to Latest in beauty
Which is not like any normal subscription box you get to pick the products that you want to receive.
So here’s my video I recorded yesterday when it came via Mr Postie
Let me know what you think and also do you get a subscription box each month, I’d love to know.
It’s 2 weeks since Christmas and when all was merry and it was all about celebrations.
Now we are heading for the middle of January and a New year may not sit well with some people.
The weather is pretty dismal, the nights are still starting at half 4 🙈
Although we can’t click our fingers and magic it better instantly, we can try and do little bits to make us happier.
* Find some happy music, make a playlist of all your feel good songs. Play it loud, feel it on your soul.
* When you get a little bit of a dry day, take advantage of it. Perfect opportunity to take yourself for a walk, or to the shops for a nosey. Fresh air is good and nature on your walk is beautiful. Appreciate the little things.
* Have a mass sort out. Decluttering is so therapeutic. Throw out all the stuff you no longer need. Then organise what you’re keeping and you’ll have satisfaction when it’s all done.
* Make a conscious effort to fuel your body when you are having low times as it gives you strength. I sound like my Mother now. Make some of your favourite meals.
* Take that bath before bed, or a bit of pampering. It’ll relax you and I believe that a bit of self love is an instant feel good factor.
Well there’s a little list of things to get rid of your blues… Hopefully.
Don’t be afraid to ring or message a friend if you just need a chat. My instagram is always open so find me there @holzieloves
Welcome to the year 2020, I hope you started yours off positively.
I thought I’d let you know a few things about how Holzieloves.co.uk is going to be this coming year.
In just under 3 weeks I am down for my operation. I will try and schedule some posts in whilst I am in dopey land but forgive me if i don’t comment straight away.
When my heads straight after the op I will be bringing you posts to inspire, educate and entertain you as before, but hopefully even better.
I will try and cover as many topics as I can.
I want to include videos and possibly add more podcasts again (this is still to be confirmed in my mind lol)
If you are a new reader or a returning one leave your blogs down below and I’ll go check them out 😘
I found this one on we heart it and thought it was quite apt for this post.
Taking any bad vibes into 2020 will do you no favours. So if you are one of those that likes to start a fresh every new year this is for you.
Things that no longer serve you with happiness in your life need to be left in 2019.
Some see the new year as just another day but me personally I see it as a positive thing.
Change is 99.9% always a good idea 😘
Wishing you all a Happy New year and may 2020 be fab in every way xxx
The last Favourites of the year. I really do like looking at all the previous months as well and see what made me happy.
I’ll leave the previous 11 at the bottom of this post if you want to have a nosey.
Here is some of Decembers bits that have made me happy.
ALIEN PERFUME DEODORANT
I never knew that I could get my favourite perfume in a deodorant/body spray until I was nosing on the perfume shop website and there it was. For 100ml it’s just perfect to fit inside a handbag. Smells beautiful. I am forever getting compliments on the scent, so it’s a no brainer to at least go get a spray of it yourself at your local chemist.
Most of you would’ve seen me wearing a couple of wigs as I’m a bit fed up of the length it is so until it’s a bob style I’ll be wearing one of my 3 wigs. This is the one I love at the moment, it is very me as I love pink.
I have had an iPad for a year or so now, but I now have a pencil I can use to draw on it, a cheaper one than the Apple Pencil so I needed a cover that would keep it with the iPad so this is it. It’s very girly and practical. I love it.
DIARY AND JOURNAL
Both of these are from Paperchase, one was a gift (the 5 mins before bed) and then i bought the pink one (one day one question). I love a diary/journal to write in…it’s just remembering to do it everyday. So these will be in eyeshot so I make them a habit to do.
These have always been the ones I reach for out of all the Haribo sweets. But it’s been about 20 years that I’ve been calling them Tangfantastics until a few days ago I spotted its Tanfastics 🙈
I heard this song on the radio one evening in bed and thought it was so lovely. The original is of course great but I thought Celine Dions voice was so pure.
This is a quote to remind all that the best thing you need to try and be is yourself.

what’s been your favourite thing throughout December…other than Christmas?
I am off to my pre op appointment all day today so I thought I’d just include a couple Christmas photos I’ve taken this year… It’s not that many 🙈
Me with my festive jumper on. I felt obliged to as my mum bought it for me. I don’t wear alot of red but I since its Christmas I have 😂
Us females like doing our nails for the Christmas period, I think I’ve had both of these nail varnishes for about 3 years and only bring them out in December.
This is my friends dog Lexie. Who actually looks adorable in her outfit. Lots of people stopped and some wanted her picture. What a little poser.
It’s amazing what you can find in a charity shop. This very festive mug. With its jacket on or off its very Christmassy.
By the way, I’ve been writing all my blogmas posts on the actual day I post them so there has been no planning as such.
Hope you all have a fantastic day.
