Welcome back once again. It’s Thursday and that means we get to look inside another beautiful handbag. This time we’ve got Holly Matthews, a business and mindset coach, actress, mum, vlogger and also the beholder of an incredibly infectious thirst for life.  You can find our Q&A monday article here, it’s full of motivation and support for creating the life you want to live!

Holly is also generously offering our readers £100 off her coaching services (just mention this blog). Her offer is valid until June 2017.

Over to you Holly, what’s in your handbag?

1. My pink notebook – Full of secrets and plans for the future. I am a huge over thinker and this allows me to get my ideas down on paper. If anyone read this, I might look mental!

2. Books: She means Business, Carrie Green and E2, Pat Grout. Two books I’m reading right now, I always have a book on the go.

3. Maybeline.

4. lipstick (Soap & Glory).

5. Lip balm (Forever Living).

6. Leopard print card holder – this was a gift from my mother-in-law.

7. Pen – for all those ideas!

8. Hair slide- They are just always everywhere and never when you need them.

9. Hair bobble- Even when I wear my hair down I end up chucking it up by the end of the day!

10. iPhone 6 – I use this far too much, but I love my Skinny-dip case.

11. Awesomeness card – this was given to me by a young artist on a train to London. We got chatting and she had been drawing me without my knowledge. When she told me and I loved it, she handed me the card for being awesome (which was nice) and I am to pass it on to the next awesome person I find!
