Reality TV – love it or hate it, it has definitely made an impact on modern day television! Personally – I love it! I confess, it’s my guilty pleasure – I love the drama, the gossip and the craziness of it all! Especially – and possibly the most crazy reality show of them all - Geordie Shore!
With series 8 of the record breaking MTV show currently hitting our TV screens, I am once again caught up in the outrageous world of the party-hard Geordie guys and girls!! So, when I received an email with details of two of the Geordie lasses most recent collaborations, I was only too happy to share with you all.
Holly Hagan – one of the original cast members of the show – has posed for her fashion collection Summer Holiday Additions with online retailer, TheFashionBible.co.uk. The 22 year old Middlesbrough lass played homage to the 13 year old smash hit Can’t Get You Out Of My Head, in her latest shoot for the range, striking a pose reminiscent of the famous Kylie Minogue track, which topped the UK charts for a whole month.
Showing her curves in all the right places, Holly’s figure is unrecognisable from the girl that entered Geordie Shore series 1, just 2 years ago.
Holly’s latest range claims to be more “real” compared to her usual outrageous style, with the star stating: “I struggle looking at old pictures of myself, I used to think I looked great on a night out with my 5 pairs of eyelashes, skimpy PVC skirt and 1 leather glove, but in reality, I looked like a baby elephant!”
“My look this series will shock a lot of people. I’ve ditched the rainbow coloured hair, for some more natural brown tones, and I’ve been working overtime in the gym, as well as getting help with my diet.
“With TheFashionBible.co.uk I really needed to make a Summer wardrobe that fitted real girls, after all I have to model it, and there’s no way I’d fit into clothes which didn’t allow for a womanly shape. My Mam jokes that I’ve the perfect child baring body, but that doesn’t help trying to fit into some of the stupidly tight clothes on the high street.”
With that in mind, the range features something suitable for a wide variety of girls, both in size and price! Holly adds:
“The range has sizes from 6 to 26 in selected items, and prices start from £8.99 so there is something for everyone.
“This Summer, for the first time since I was a child, I think I’ll be able to enjoy myself on the beach and not be totally embarrassed about my figure, and that feels good.”
My top pick has to be the HollyHagan Keyhole Backless Jumpsuit In Black - simple and sexy – perfect for a girls night out!

Now on to Geordie Shore's series 7 new girl Marnie Simpson’s more unique collaboration. Marnie recently revealed she is an avid wearer of coloured cosmetic contact lenses. In fact, she is a natural brown-eyed-girl but likes to experiment with different eye colours to achieve different looks.
She has teamed up with www.mycosmeticlenses.co.uk to have her own choices of colours, including pure blue, sea green and misty grey. The important factor for Marnie is that they look 100% nautral:
"It is so important for me to only have lenses which look 100% natural in my range. There's no point in having striking eyes if everyone can see they're clearly not real.
"It took me so long to find the right contact lenses! I was so frustrated wearing really unformatble, irritating, expensive and unnatural looking lenses and so when I found the perfect lenses with www.mycosmeticlenses.co.uk I was so happy.
"I would often get complimented for my lovely pure blue eyes, and would just smile and agree. No one would be able to tell.
"I worked hard with the design team and everything on the site I'm very proud of.
"We also worked hard to get the shape and makeup of the lenses correct so that they're extremely comfortable to wear in the eye, as in the past I've worn lenses that really irritated."
Marnie's range includes:
* Sea Green
* Light Hazel
* Misty Grey
* Pure Blue
* Pure Violet
With a 1 year life after first use, Marnie's lenses are amazing value from just £12.99 with free delivery – not bad!
Being a brown eyed girl myself, I am happy with my natural eye colour but like the idea of experimenting! I’ve always liked the thought of having green eyes so I may try the Sea Green – I think it will also be interesting how many of my friends will notice the change!
Would you ever think of getting cosmetic lenses- what colour would you go for?
