The Way Forward for HollyGoesLightly in 2018

So, I’ve been writing and curating this blog since 2013 (woah I’m an oldie in this industry!) and I’ve loved the way it has grown and developed with me: the subject matter has changed and adapted as I have and my love of creating content has led me to introduce photography and videography alongside my writing.
