Sharing Holly’s photo, she wrote: “The amulet was designed with your aura in mind – a crystal hand charged and programmed in white light for auric protection and magnification, as you can learn to do at your rhythm in my new book “You are a Rainbow”.
“When we tap into the magic of our energy inside and outside of us, we can truly rock our lives and those we love around us.”
Holly styled her blonde locks into a bun for the snap while she also donned a simple gold necklace.
The handmade necklace, made in collaboration with jeweler Roxanne First, will come in handy as Holly prepares to return to work after her vacation is cut short.

Last week it was revealed that Holly had been forced to end her seven week family holiday to self-quarantine so she could return in time to host This Morning.
The TV presenter had planned to return from the Algarve at the end of August for her summer vacation.
But UK government Covid-19 restrictions mean all passengers returning from Portugal to Britain must self-isolate for 14 days.
As a result, the TV star returned home a fortnight early and will be quarantined with her husband Dan Baldwin and their three children at their London home to be back on screens by September 7.

“Summer break is his chance to recharge after a hectic time and spend time with his family. After all the stress of the pandemic, she was looking forward to relaxing for as long as possible.
“Instead of seven weeks away she had to do five – but that’s what she had to do to keep the This Morning crew safe and to make sure she gets back to work. broadcast on time.”
A source close to Holly said of the arrangement: “Holly is not ‘unhappy’ to be back, but happy to do what is necessary to keep everyone safe.”

Holly took to Instagram ahead of her summer vacation to express her thanks to the This Morning team and viewers who tuned in during the lockdown.
She said: ‘Thank you…thank you for sticking with us for the past 109 days…When we started this new way of streaming, we had no idea how long we would be able to get in, or if this would be our last broadcast from the studio during confinement.
“The team adapted and had plans a, b, c and d in place just in case… Some days we weren’t sure if we would have the content to fill the show, but in a way or another, we always pulled it off and even had a few laughs along the way.

“You see us, but we feel you’re there with us, on every show… @thismorning holds up a mirror to life and reflects the vibe of how we all feel.”
Holly added: “I can’t thank our team enough!” @martinfrizell1, Emma, all the production that came.
‘The production team who worked from home, the crew, the TM family and the other presenters who are always brilliant, but especially to @schofe for metaphorically holding my hand and reliably social distancing at the shoulder to shoulder with me…
‘What a strange time… I feel incredibly grateful… Great love, thank you again… See you in September.’
