First post: Who is Just Hollie?

SO, you may have come across this post by accident or you may have seen my Instagram and clicked on the lovely little link that brings you here 🙂
Either way, i’m glad you’re reading this and I hope you will continue to do so!!
In this post I am going to give you a list of 5 things you can expect to see a lot of and to be honest, if you don’t like any of these things then this blog isn’t for you. However if any of the below is of interest to you, bingo, maybe you and me will get along just fine!


I love food. Food is my soulmate. If I’m not eating, I’m thinking about eating.
I have been this way since I was a little girl watching my mum bake sausage rolls at Christmas time, my brother and I straining to watch and get in on the action.
Fast forward 20 years and my partner is a chef. He has worked with the likes of Daniel Clifford, Jamie Oliver, and Ruth Watson – and guess what, he reallyyyyy likes food too!
We eat out lots, we cook together lots and we are always trying new things. I will be posting restaurant reviews and also sharing some of our favorite recipes for you to try! I love to eat healthily and cook with lots of fresh ingredients, but don’t worry, there is the occasional indulgence I will be sharing with you!
If you see something you like, please feel free to ask questions ( or likewise if you know somewhere you think I ought to try please let me know, I love discovering new places to eat!

Harry Potterimage3

Harry Potter is life. I am obsessed and I am not ashamed. I walk around my house in a dressing gown made to look like a Hogwarts robe (keep your eyes peeled on my Instagram, I’ll share a pic) and I watch the films weekly.
It started with my dad, he works in the factory which printed the books and he was in charge of the machine which made the first-ever copy! I grew up with Harry, he literally kept food on my table and I have been in love ever since I read the first line.

Beauty Reviews

I am a qualified, experienced hairdresser and makeup artist so naturally, I love products and treatments. I go to local salons and will write up my experiences (hopefully all positive) and I will let you know if I come across any ‘must-have’ products! Lipstick and colouring my hair blonde is my thing, the right lip colour can lift your mood instantly! With so many brands and ‘new’ technologies on the market, it’s near impossible to know what to spend your hard-earned money on!! It goes without saying that if you use anything you think I would like, please tell me and I will check it out.


Norfolk and Suffolk

I am all for using this blog as a platform to promote hard-working, independent, local business people. There are so many amazing businesses in Norfolk and Suffolk and I fully appreciate how lucky I am to live in this part of the world. From boutiques to greengrocers, seamstresses to window cleaners, I will recommend anyone I come across who I think are local heroes. I will also document my lovely days out I have around my hometown and let you know the best places to go to eat, drink, shop and have a lovely time!
