5 Days In Morocco

July 10, 2017

5 days in paradise, 5 days with my love, 5 days in Morocco.

5 days In Morocco, felt like 5 days in serenity! It was an amazing holiday embracing the culture, new experiences, food, and language. And I want to share it with you and let you know about all the fun things you can do in Morroco.


Day 1

Day 1 is always an open day as you just arrive and settle in. Well, we did just that and more. Starting with our hotel, we stayed at the Dellarosa Hotel, in the center of Marrakesh. It is a small boutique hotel which was really cute and simple. It had a modern Moroccan decor hotel, which was really beautiful. The only downside was our hotel room decor was a dark brown, which wasn’t great for capturing makeup tutorials because t was too dark. Another not so nice experience was the breakfast the options were not too great. But other than that it was a lovely hotel, sometimes you take the good with the bad I guess. It was close to everything and everywhere, which was perfect for us!

 

To round up on day 1 – We went for an afternoon walk and had lunch/dinner then relaxed in the pool at our hotel and in the evening went to Famous 555 Club. It really cool club that played everything I wanted to hear. I definitely recommend you going there (but don’t turn up before 12 pm they party until 5 am, so 1 am is like early)

 


Day 2 

It was an early start for a tourist day! I finally got to visit Rue Yves Saint Laurent garden. I didn’t know that it was originally owned by an architect Jardin Majorelle and then it was Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge then bought it once Jardin Majorelle passed away. To me, it’s a romantic creative story all about the love of art. And when you can there you feel it and see it. 

We also went to the Moroccan market. It felt so authentic being in the midst of it, hearing locals call me and boyfriend brother and sister. Hearing them persuaded to purchase whatever they had to offer. To be honest we enjoyed it and laughed with them as we walked by. 


Day 3 

5 days In Morocco

We got active!!! Definitely my boyfriends favourite day. We went Quad biking in the desert and then went camel riding. You can usually book these excursions through your hotel and it is really cheap and a full day experience. One to tick off the bucket list!

Day 4 

Was a more fun!! We went to a beach house day party, it’s called Famous Beach and owned by the same people that run Club 555 that we went to on day 1. It’s a beautiful mansion, amazing decor (great to capture content) with many pools, Dj, restaurant, and bar. Everything you need in one place to relax and enjoy the sun! 


Day 5 5 days In Morocco

Ending our holiday on a high, we went for a beautiful walk enjoying the Moroccan city. It really is a beautiful city, cultural with so much to do and experience. I didn’t get a chance to go the atlas mountain, which is on my wishlist for the next time I go there.

I will also be sharing my FIRST VLOG – from this trip. I’m a freshman with Youtube so bare with me as I get to grips with it.

Self Reflection – Be Present And Don’t Let Confusion Conquer

June 23, 2017

Self reflection. 

So I am a confident advocate of not loosing things! Honestly I will always say, I don’t loose things. But how my life has changed in the past 4 weeks I have lost key Items that are so important to running around. My work phone, Oyster and a few other things. I have been so annoyed at myself, like when did i get so careless or absent minded. Out of all the flaws I have, those were not it.

But today I have surrounded, I message my girls and was like: Thats it, my name is Olivia and I loose things! I have to admit it and let it go. 

Its something that sounds silly but then all my girls said to me was: your not focused, your mind is busy. And there right my mind has been occupied. I have been thinking about a few things but I didn’t know it had really subconsciously taking over. 

So in sharing my annoying experiences, it self sharing self reminder to take time out and be still. Its clear my mind cloudy with a lot and I just need to focus and relax so I can correctly move in the flow of my purpose and calling. And not get wrapped up in my mind and my thoughts, its god who leads the way and thats who I need to lean on at this time where things are shifting!

Now To Fashion & Style

The area that never fails me! Summer is finally here which is my favourite season, I am happy, awake and just have an overall better vibe. We thank God for the vitamin D the sun supplies us with. When its sunny with a little breeze, this is an outfit I have worn many times which I love. Playing and shapes and print with denim flared jeans and stripe gathered top. Its easy and such a effortless, effort combo!

White Summer Lace – Style Tales With A Thought Piece!

June 13, 2017

White Summer Lace For The Win! 

White lace In summer is a cute, fun and chic ensemble to style during the season. I have always loved the colour white and would always wear it as my birthday dress colour in the past, just because the shade is so regal. White is the perfect colour that stands out without being too ‘loud’. It it a classic, neutral tone that works with a many other colours.

White Summer Lace White Summer Lace

I bought this sheer lace blouse which I got from Zara and knew how I wanted to wear it. I preferred the larger fit so that I could throw it over a top or bra-let which I have here. But in future I can also wear it as a throw over, over a bikini. A versatile piece that you can style in different ways is alway handy!

Keeping it classic I wore, flared white trousers and a cream bra-let and accessorised with my new white my Chlòe inspired white hand bag from Mango!

Thought Piece – Gram Generation vs Doing The Work

currently I have been thinking, as i always do about the gram generation that I am in an how we shouldn’t get lost in the sauce of watching too much and just do the work. With the ‘Gram Generation’ where people are constantly showing off what they’ve got, done or achieved. You can get caught up just watch and who has time to just be watching? Its crazy how you can get lost in the sauce of being the person to ‘catch the tea’ or see what’s popping first.

The disadvantages of this, is HUGE. Being in my mid-20’s the time is now it put in the work and craft and shape the career and life that i want for myself. I think many of readers can relate to this, as I am aware that many girls that follow my blog, Instagram  or twitter are hardworking girls trying to make it. Even though we support each other and visit blogs, watch Youtube video’s and all things like that. The message here is to use that as inspiration to focus what you want to achieve and crack on with it. As I said In my #Lifeofamarketinggirl post, its better to take risk than stand still!

The Iconic Blazer – Maxa Mara Inspired!

June 3, 2017

The iconic Max Mara blazer or Zara? – Lets talk about it!

I have been quiet on the blog lately, sorry! May was a month of working on various projects that’s been taking up my time, which has been more of the behind the scenes work that I do such as, fashion marketing and PR work. I will be revealing more in my #LifeOfAMarketingGirl section next week. I know some of my followers have asking for me to share more about all of that, so I plan on sharing personal work stories for ya’ll!

Blazer Blazer

Lets talk about this jacket now, as it is a major staple piece that is going into my wardrobe!

Previously in one of my style post, I spoke about fast fashion and how I wasn’t really inspired by much as of late. Then last week I was scrolling on the Zara website (as you do) and saw this blazer and thought OMG my mum would love this. It reminds of one of my favourite brands Max Mara who are renowned for creating the most amazing, classic, iconic blazers.

Blazer

What I love most about this jacket is that you can wear it over and over again, in various styles. And it reminded me to get back on track and continue to shop for classics to build a staple piece wardrobe collection. Starting with luxe basics that are versatile through the season. Zara have a lot of chic blazers and jackets at the moment in many colours but red struck my attention because it was a bold red, that compliments what I already have in my wardrobe.

Blazer

I styled the blazer with exactly how I would like to wear it out for date night. Forever 21 lace bra-let and flared trousers from Zara. Completing for a classic, sexy and feminine look. I’m thinking to style the jacket on it’s own next with knee high boots!

Return Of The Mac!

May 16, 2017

Mac Jackets are oh so necessary when the sun is ‘sometimish’ and the wind is more consistent than the sun.

A few weekends ago it was a very busy one. Non stop running around starting with shooting content for the blog and writing reviews and insights for the #lifeofamarketinggirl segment, which i hope you guys are enjoying! Then I whisked my way to the other side of London and had an afternoon brunch hosted by a lovely blogger friend @bdblggr you may be following her if not, you should do so! We ate and talked for ages, not really about but life and evolving as we are in our mid 20’s. Lastly I then ended Westfield shopping with my friends shopping!

ISA LOOK

I really didn’t want to look ‘matchy, matchy’. There was a voice in my head that was saying’ mix it up, wear something random. And that’s exactly what I did. I knew I wanted to be comfortable so wearing tight clothes was not a desire. I threw on this stripy shirt from Zara which is so easy to wear with anything. I paired the top with comfortable stretchy jeans from Zara (that shop is giving me luxury visuals right now with their pieces) and completed my look with Next’s blue Mac jacket and leather Zebra pumps.

I was comfortable, chic and free. A style combo I recommend for any city girl running round trying to do it all!

Live Your Best Life – Chronicles Of A Millenials Mind!

May 1, 2017

The goal is to live your best life. I repeat, the goal is to live your best life. Let me tell you why:

A few weeks since turning 26 I spent a few weeks in having so much fun. Enjoying my friends, love ones and just living life. Then randomly I had a moment, not just any moment. I had a mini-breakdown so to speak. I need to own my own home in two years. I need to be on ‘x’ amount of money by the end of the year. I need to have more freedom to achieve my dreams. The list goes on and on!…

live your best lifelive your best life

Then on day 2 of ‘Olivia’s self pity day’ lol anxiety had taking over mentally and physically. I couldn’t concentrate at all, I wanted to cry but had no specific reason. My mind was on overload with all the worry, doubt, fear, ANXIETY. You name it, I had it. It was awful. By the end of the day I was drained. Two days had gone by and I just moaned (well in my head), I let fear take over and rule my life for two whole days!

Then I had a moment where I just said to myself, you have wasted all this energy and look how far you have come ,NO WHERE. Then it hit me, what am I doing? Why am I letting this negative energy rule my mind? I have completely dismissed what I have achieved so far and what I am focused on. Then I saw this tweet and it was like an Oprah ‘AHA’ moment that happened to me. I read this quote which read: Don’t be a “only” if believer. Be a “even if” believer. Those words literally ran through my mind and body and swept that energy right away, that was drowning me for those two days. It really hit me, Why worry about the obstacle’s they will come but they will go. Just stay focused on what you can achieve on a day to day basis and LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE.

live your best life live your best life

The quote couldn’t be more right. Why spend time stressing and thinking about the negative when there is so much to be grateful for. It really hit home that it is the mind and I have the power to change what is wrong in my life right! You have the power. We all do, It’s our god given right. Since I flipped my thinking, it feels so good and feels so right. Life is short, so whatever you are doing in life enjoy it and if you are not, change your circumstances so that you can. Life did not come with a rule book, so do what is right for you! Don’t watch others, live your best life and most importantly seek the kingdom of god for guidance, he never will fail you!

live your best life

Spring Double Denim

April 10, 2017

Double Denim in spring is the perfect outfit to commence the sunny days. Without doing too much too soon! As I’m delving into my spring/summer wardrobe and moving away from jumpers. Denim is a great transitional look to go for when having a busy day out with friends and family. I love this combo from Next SS17 collection. The two tone denim is so pretty and seasonal have fun with this summer!

Keeping up or staying True to you? Let’s discuss!

A conversation that me and my friends have been having as of lately has been about style. Today so many trends are popping up, as fast fashion is getting faster, it’s like playing catch-up. But then don’t you think sometimes that you start to lose your sense of personal style! To be honest I think that’s what happened to me at the end of 2016. I was trying looks that I actually wouldn’t wear and it was difficult to put certain looks together.  Now I am taking it back to basics and working with what naturally is my core style and inspirational sources and iconic fashion brands that I love!

For example, Farfetch have a style guide segment on their site which talks about various different style habits and trends that refers back to adapting to your personal style. A big one for me that I have got inspiration from is ‘What To Wear With White Jeans. I LOVE wearing white. It is clean, classic and goes so well with everything. A style guide on this is a great go to help for me to style my white jeans with various looks.

Fashion is always evolving and you may not have the time or money to be trying to keep up with. This is where style comes in and using what you have to re-create amazing looks that embodies what your style is. Not what’s just hot for now!

I speak to myself here and you too, let’s bring it back to basics and build out style, so that when we look back. We will be telling our kids, look child I was so hot in my twenties, I know about fashion take a look here! That is going to be such a funny time In many years to come!
