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

For The Love Of Pink!

March 26, 2017

Don’t you just love pink?  As a girl it represents so much and if you have seen my last post on the Life Of A Marketing Girl I delved a lot deeper and dissected what Pink represents. I spoke about how from a marketing prospective, how powerful pink and other colours Influences trends, culture, brand relevance and even buying behaviour. In the world of fashion and feminism – Millennial Pink stands for all females out there, who are a combination of stylish, fashion girls/women who are passionate about their purpose, career, embracing their sexual power whilst maintaining being and a GIRL BOSS! For more click here

Now To The Outfit – I rediscovered my love for pink in December when I went to Amsterdam with my boyfriend end of last year. I randomly bought a pink jumper and it fit so well with a burgundy skirt I whore with red boots. Since then I have fell back in love with pink and to be honest as spring is here, it is the perfect time to add pink to my list colours to experiment with.  

Some of your favourite fashion brands as embracing this shade especially with SS17 collections. Brands such as Zara, Topshop and the likes of: Rihanna Fenty x Puma, Valentino, Balenciaga and Celine are all hot on Pink. I paired a beautiful ruffle Zara top with Missguided jeans that I love and finished of the look with classic Jimmy Choo’s in a suede sorbet blue pumps.

 I can happily say I think pink is my colour LOL. So next on the colour mood board is yellow, I’m excited and want to enjoy stepping out my comfort zone. I hope this inspires you to do the same!

Spring Is Here Or Nah?

March 15, 2017

It’s Mid-March and I hope that means spring is here. But I won’t hold my breath, London is very temperamental and before you know it we are in a season of constant rain. Winter is boring now, wearing jumpers is annoying and the cold is quite depressing. Spring is cooler, you can enjoy the day for longer and for me, personally it makes me happier and positive.

I’ve been really keen on spring because I want to play with colour & be more confident with a variety of shades that I choose. So basically I need the sun to give me a an excuse to wear red trousers and a pink shirt (that is quite a colour combo trend for summer FYI)

Last year I kept it safe. Neutral colour palettes are the staple pieces in my wardrobe currently. Even though that is cool, it feels very bland and safe. To be honest that is not the space that I am in at all. I want to experiment with my style, push the envelope (within remit lol).

So when I saw these red flare trousers from Zara I was like yassss, there so classy, a real staple piece. The top is also a hot piece too, the puffer sleeves giving me vintage Vivienne Westwood, Oscar De La Renta, I love it. When I saw it I was thinking £20.00 for a luxury look and feel sold!

So I guess this is a start, again sticking to building a classic wardrobe whilst incorporating colour. I definitely will be sharing more colour, shapes and fun vibes!

Floral Tales – Introducing colour and detail into my wardrobe!

January 23, 2017

Floral Tales – Introducing colour and detail into my wardrobe! 

With all that’s going on in the U.K with Brexit and in the U.S with Donald Trump and the presidential election. So I may not have all the answers for that. But I guess I can bring some positive and light inspiration for you fashion girls!

Floral Tales – I want to introduce colour & details such as floral into my wardrobe. Last year I bought a lot of basics and core colours, as well as my denim collection back up, as it was very weak. Now when I look in my wardrobe I have no colourful key pieces that adds some fun. (Waves white flag) I am NOT advertising go out and go spend more LOL. I am all about saving as much as you can, but we can always ball on a budget.

Now with that disclaimer out the way lol! I did a tiny bit of sale shopping and with my floral & colour lack in my closet. Post Boxing Day sales I picked up this Zara bodysuit which was only like £12.00 bargain guys bargain! Red is a striking classic colour, along with floral detail for a nice contrast. I paired it with black mid-rise Frame Denim jeans that fit so perfectly. I have struggled to find jeans since I have gone up a size, so happy to find a pair that hug the right places. I highly recommend them tell them Olivia sent you LOL 🙂

Double Up With Flare Denim

January 15, 2017

One of my newest purchases is a paire of denim flares. I am currently loving denim especially flared denim! It is a sassy upgrade to regular pair of jeans, adding some variety. I saw these jeans on Miss Guided and I instantly gravitated towards the flared detail at the bottom. And I also bought a fringe shoulder jumper from Zara. I thought it was a perfect outfit combo to put together that works well. Simple sexy and sassy. (I didn’t mean to rhyme here lol)

I want to really enjoy the process of evolving whether it is on trend or not and build key staple piece that will last forever in my wardrobe. This explains my first style post of 2017 that I want to share with you and hope it inspires you to get back to your core style essence and just enjoy building your core wardrobe!

Personal Style – For me personally this year I want to not compromise my style and just be me. I think sometimes as a blogger you feel to follow trends. Sometimes it doesn’t always fit well with your individual style. And that is OK!

For example flare trousers may not work for you but you can take some inspiration by the colour palette of the look. Or perhaps switch the flare for baggy jeans or a skinny fit. Nothing never has to be taken as identical but if there is an aspect of my style that you gravitate too, then I am doing something right here LOL.

I also want to share my health and fitness journey with you guys too!

I started the gym at the end of 2016 and it is something I have been really enjoying and plan on weaving into my life for good!

Mesh Fits and Rip’s

December 1, 2016

Mesh fits and rip’s is all that it is, but it is impactful. Mixing and matching textures always results for a stylish, chic look. This is more of a cosy girl vibe that I am channelling but I like it. At the core of my style, feminine fits is home, but I always like to challenge myself to stretch myself with a new-normal.

I got these white ripped jeans from ASOSs not too long ago and I have worn them more than a doesn’t times. They are not so tight and not too baggy. Just right for the casual fit I have been looking for. I styled it with a mesh body from Wolford as it adds a sexy flare compared to just wearing general T-shirt. Of course Vans is the ultimate cosy fit footwear that works with everything so I threw them on, as I wear them most of the time.

Black and white is classic and perfect colour combo for this London winter. It is so cold, I can’t express it enough!

Random Thought – Authenticity

In the social world that we live in, it seems so easy for people to get caught up, follow suit and becomes sheep! I say this because as bloggers and influencers becoming the ‘in’ thing. People see this as easy and try to do anything to fit in and perceive the same image, lifestyle. Or even more commonly, get instant gratitude that the likes of Instagram gives people.

For me personally nothing feels more liberating that enjoying who you are and what you stand for. Not wanting to confirm and stand firm behind your beliefs, contrary to what may be popular or popping on the ‘gram’. Purpose over popularity! This is the key, in everything you do, embody and stand for purpose. That ignites authenticity and stability in that. With that being said…Please NEVER believe the hype!
