A Vision, A Dream, A Reality

4

You’ve all heard of vision boards… The board that you can make with all your dreams you want to come true.

Well I’ve been doing it a bit differently with this little beaut…


When I am chilling out on my bed and pinning on Pinterest like mad I decided why don’t I have a secret board of my visions in life so a few weeks ago I started it.

Today I decided to focus on my dream house if I was ever lucky enough to own / rent such a place and this is the 12 I chose out of the 50 odd that are on my board 🙈


I absolutely adore the colour pink so I would of course theme the house around my personality and that colour.

I couldn’t leave out the garden so I included that too.


Somewhere girly but also relaxing at the same time.
Whoever my other half was would have to accept my inner Elle Woods from Legally Blonde.

Apparently if you put your visions out there to the universe you shall have so there you go universe I would like this 🌸

Hope you’ve enjoyed reading.
Let me know if you have made vision boards/pages.

Til next time

Keeping you in the loop

2

I want to keep you, my lovely followers informed of what’s going on with my blog.

So I want to get some sort of normality to it and start a schedule again so it’ll keep me writing and not get writers block or lack of motivation so here’s what days I intend on having posts up

THIS IS BRITISH TIME GMT – IF YOU DONT WANT TO MISS A POST TURN YOUR NOTIFICATIONS ON

You know I like to bring to the blog a range of topics to make you laugh, think and inspire…so I’ll do my best with my upcoming posts

The only times I may not be able to post is when I’m ill as I have a few chronic illnesses that get in the way when I least expect them to.

Best get my planning head on for this weeks trio of posts

THINK I HAVE OVERUSED THE WORD POST TODAY 🙈

See you in a few days

My Blogger must have essentials

We as bloggers love to experiment with different things on the market to see what will help us as creative writers and add a bit of pyzaz to it.

Well these are some of the things that I have purchased that I wouldn’t be without.

You can click on the coloured link and it’ll take you there. (not sponsored or paid in any way)


Living in England there’s only a little sun so when it goes in before you can get a good shot something else has to be that artificial light and this ring light is just perfect. Not bulky, not over big and can easily be tucked away. You can put your phone on it and record videos or take selfies too which is a great added feature.

RING LIGHT AND TRIPOD WITH SELFIE HOLDER

If you are out and about and want to throw a bit of light on your face when you’re taking a selfie a little ring light that you can attach to your phone for under a tenner is something not to miss. Easily charged by USB or power if you have a spare plug.

RECHARGEABLE RING LIGHT FOR PHONE

If you have been looking for the tripod that you can depend on then the Gorilla pod is the best one out there in my opinion. You can bend it any way and even wrap around the tree for hand’s free photos. This one is for your camera and is under £30.

GORILLA POD TRIPOD

Then of course there’s a smaller one you can put in your bag and put your phone on it. I believe its £10. Bloody bargain.

GORILLA MINI POD TRIPOD FOR PHONE

Well I have to say I don’t use my camera that often I prefer my phone as its more to hand. When I do use a camera I grab my Sony A6000 which has fab specs and well worth getting.

SONY A6000 INTERCHANGEABLE LENS DIGITAL CAMERA

For the last few months since my upgrade I can honestly say the Huawei P20 Pro is a bloggers phone indeed. The battery life is great, the 3 cameras in it has such quality and its super slim to fit into your pocket or bag.

HUAWEI P20 PRO 128GB

I wanted a laptop that wasn’t too cumbersome and that I could take with me on the go if needed, so when I stumbled across the Asus Transformer Book Mini it was exactly what I was after. With the detachable screen and the pen I just had to get it. It was on offer when I got it but its still affordable for a nifty piece of kit.

ASUS TRANSFORMER

BOOK MINI 10.1

Not every blogger will need one but if you also like making videos/podcasts or voiceovers then a microphone like this one is the perfect addition to your blogging essentials.

MICROPHONE FOR VOICEOVERS AND PODCAST

I hope by sharing my faves it may give you food for thought – more like tech for thought.

A little celebration

5

3 years ago I decided to embark on my blogging journey.

To be honest I wasn’t sure what I was going to write or if anyone was going to be interested in hearing what little me had to say.

❤️ Turns out I’ve shared my health problems and the ups and downs of them.

❤️ In turn that’s made me a more positive person and I love to share those positive vibes and help anyone out who’s feeling down as I’ve been there once upon a time.

❤️ I’m a right girly girl so of course there was going to be beauty and a bit of fashion thrown in for good measure.

❤️ If I have some tips to get you through everyday life of course I’m going to share. All have been tried and tested. I’d never tell you to try something I hadn’t already.

❤️ Love me a monthly favourite looking back at the month just been and what bits and pieces have made me smile.

❤️ Growing up I never loved myself so now I’m older I really urge anyone to love who they are and it doesn’t make you vain or stuck up. So you’ll find me always spreading the self love message.

Here are a few blog posts I thought I’d add in so you can have a nosey

HOW DO YOU BLOG?

20 THINGS YOU NEED TO START DOING

DIARIES VS BULLET JOURNALS

DISABLED NOT DUMB

DAD I’LL NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU

MY ANXIETY TIPS

Also without all of you supporting me by reading my blog it wouldn’t keep me going.

Writing is my passion so having HOLZIELOVES is really an outlet for whatever comes into my head that I fancy sharing.

Much loves, you keep up your journeys too

The Diary of a Pinkaholic

0

Hey my lovely ones,

I wanted to have somewhere where I could just randomly blog daily about whatever came to mind that I also wanted to share with whoever wanted a read. I felt that here on Holzieloves wasn’t the right place and decided to make a second blog.

Holzieloves is going to be 3 this year and I have built it up to help inspire, share my tips, my life experiences, and to entertain and I intend to keep it that way.

So my second blog is called THE DIARY OF A PINKAHOLIC and it is what it says. I have always kept a diary of some sort and i adore pink. Don’t worry the blog doesn’t talk about pink all the time. It’s whatever is going on that day and a little bit of my humour too.

if you’d like to check it out then click here

I will still be uploading 2/3 posts a week here on Holzieloves so keep your eyes open for the next one.

My goal for the week ahead

6

I have really missed blogging more frequently. It’s an outlet for me to write down my thoughts, give advice and try to make people smile.

I am giving myself a goal

That’s Monday to Sunday. I want to cover every topic you see in my side bar. That way it won’t be boring.

I hope you’ll come back and have a nosey and feedback, suggestions and comments are always welcome.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend so far

Til Monday

Reasons for a week off

I am sorry there haven’t been any posts in the last week.

I know I don’t need to apologise. I know I have some readers that religiously follow me and a few have asked if I was ok so I thought I would tell you why I didn’t write.

As most of you know I have a few illnesses – One being M.E, which causes extreme tiredness amongst other symptoms. I had a few bad days at the beginning of the week so I spent most of those days in bed recuperating and sleeping my senses away. Not fun in the slightest.

Luckily by the Friday I was feeling a lot more energised and well enough to go to my best friends birthday meal in the evening. This was special because it was a reunion with all my close school friends who I hadn’t been out with since I left school 15 years ago. It was really nice to get out the house with friends and not my mum.  They were all taking it in turns to push me in the wheelchair which was a laugh as I was scared I would end up falling off the curb. I had a few alcoholic beverages for the occasion too. Archers and lemonade of course.

Saturday was a I got a hangover head kind of day so I didn’t do very much at all apart from telly hopping and eating junk food. I did do a face mask in the evening, always like to do one once a week to look after my 30 something skin.

Sunday was an Auntie and Niece afternoon. I got to spend it with just me and Daisy. I really love that I can have a conversation with her now and she knows what I am on about. She loves her Auntie Hol and its so nice to feel loved.

Yesterday (Monday) was a long ass day I had to go to hospital to see the people I saw when I had to stay in hospital to see if they could improve the paralysis in my legs. It was a 5-hour round trip for a 30-minute appointment. I didn’t the best news, there’s no cure just need to manage it when it happens, which is very frequent.. I am still smiling, there’s no need to be miserable. It is what it is.

So you can see its been quite a hectic up and down week but I am back now and will try and get a few more posts up this week.

Thanks for stopping by
