CHECKERED PAST

Blogger, Makeup, Model, Photo Shoot, Photography, Style, StylistOlivia NicoleComment

Styles change, but the past is never forgotten!

As far as fashion goes, trends come and go, but styles are always recycled from our past! Whether it be the revival of PUNK from the 80s and 90s or living and loving a bohemian lifestyle like in the 70s, we all see past trends returning time and time again, but always with a bit of a modern day twist.

My style has evolved so much over the years, and with age, came creativity and individuality. The older I get and the more experiences that I have had, has taught me to continue to push the envelope with my style and to not be afraid to take risks. I tend to do things a little more wacky than I did in let's say my teenage years and early twenties. I have always gained my style inspirations from the past, but have made sure to always make that style fit my personal aesthetic. Whether I play with bohemian styles or Americana styles, I always give that personal rock n' roll touch that has remained part of my "signature look"!

Lesson here, always be conscious of the history of fashion/style, while remembering to integrate your own personal touch with the styles from our past. Let's be real, we can all learn a little something from the past.

PIT STOP

Blogger, Model, Photo Shoot, Photography, Style, StylistOlivia NicoleComment

Pit stops are meant to be about adventure! Traveling from city to city? Make sure to make a quick pit stop in a city along the way and have a little fun!

My good friend and photographer Shannon Bray, whom I met during my time living in Los Angeles, made a quick pit stop in Atlanta on her way to Nashville one afternoon. This was the best kind of pit stop, in my opinion! Shannon quickly became one of my favorite photographers to work with almost immediately when I moved to Los Angeles, and we built a strong bond from there and even stronger images together over the past year! When you meet someone that you just bond with on a whole other level, that's something. With her, not only do I have an insane respect for her creative talent, but I have a deep connection to her incredible spirit! Her spirit is contagious and her talent has pushed me to be keep following this dream of mine!

Now that Shannon resides only an 8 hour car ride away, I can promise you that this will NOT be the last you see of our duo!

"Gimme back my bullets
Put 'em back where they belong
Ain't foolin' around 'cause I done had my fun
Ain't gonna see no more damage done
Gimme back my bullets"
- Lynyrd Skynyrd

Being back in the SOUTH makes me feel like I'm living in a Lynyrd Skynyrd song, "cause' I'm as free as a bird now" with a heart full of joy and a head full of dreams.

Living the dream means having a dream and going after that dream and that's what I plan to do each and every day! 2016 has started out better than any other and I must say, I just can't wait to see what lies ahead!

FOXY LADY

Blogger, Model, Makeup, Photo Shoot, Photography, Style, StylistOlivia NicoleComment

"You make me feel like...feel like sayin' FOXY...oh lady...FOXY, FOXY LADY." - Jimi Hendrix

Happy Birthday Jimi Hendrix! For your raw talent, genius artistry, and for your unique style choices that will forever be iconic! Jimi Hendrix, a legend who slays a guitar like none before. A legend who's music can cut into your soul like no other! A legend who's albums continue to spin, over and over again.

Black Friday is coming to a close and quite frankly, I'm just ready for Cyber Monday! Personally, I rarely ever participate in Black Friday deals unless there is a just a must-have electronic, for a steal! Why would I ever wake at the butt crack of dawn to arrive at a store hours before the doors open, only to be pushed around by multiple customers for the last pair of boots that you've all been eyeing for months? Exactly! Why would I ever do that when I know that Cyber Monday is only a couple days away!!! The day where you can shop till you literally empty your bank account, straight from your iPhone/computer, while you're still in your pjs and maybe even in bed, if you're anything like me! I'd say that's a better deal, any day of the week! What do you think?
