Blogger, Photography, StyleOlivia NicoleComment

Flashing back to the end of fall with Nena & Co while looking forward to spring. Bring on the beautiful flowers and warm sunshine. My Nena bag and I are ready for some spring time adventures. The great thing about your Nena & Co bag, is that it is in style no matter what the season may be. The beautiful prints transform to every season of the year, making it a very versatile accessory. 

People of all ages gravitate towards the beautiful prints and vibrant colors that Nena & Co has to offer. Whether you need a diaper bag, a purse, an over-night bag, a beach bag, a camera strap, or some home accents, they've got you covered. Needless to say, my Nena love affair continues each and every day!

Stay tuned for the first big family spring outing with the little babe in tote!

SIN CITY

Blogger, Style, PhotographyOlivia NicoleComment

Last month, I spent some time in Las Vegas as a style ambassador for PROJECT at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. All in all, it was a very successful trade show, allowing me to have the opportunity to meet and greet with brands and my fellow bloggers in the industry. Talk about being inspired!! Being around so many wonderfully talented individuals was mega inspiring and oh so good for my soul. Being away from my little dude (son Axel) for the first time was far from easy, but mama needed to recharge the creative juices. That is indeed what I did! Now I'm back home with my family and ready to work, all with my babe in tote! Watch out! Mama on the move!

Vegas is known as 'Sin City' because it is the home of various vices, legal and illegal. For some people, you come to vegas to booze and (most likely) lose your moolah. For me, I like to keep my money right where I can see it, on my baby, in my wallet, or hanging in my closet. Allowing myself a portion of my money to gamble during this trip, I hit the slots first chance I could, where I lost it all and gained it all back within about half an hour. That's the extent of my gambling "vice" during my trip to Vegas. That's enough sinning for this mama, with the exception of my biggest sin of all - sleeping through the night for the first time in almost 8 months! A well rested mama is rare, that's for sure. Long hours and late parties are not the usual 9pm bedtime that I've come accustom to, but oh so worth it!

Thank you to everyone who was involved with the #BloggerPROJECT this year! I hope to see you all again in August!

Give back this Holiday season by giving yourself a gift that you will LOVE and also that you can feel good about getting. You deserve to treat yourself!

Nena & Co. has got you covered with rad bags that add a little flair to your wardrobe, while also helping to make a difference. Nena & Co. provides better lives for the people of Guatemala, whether it is by providing purified filtered water, or providing scholarships to the local artisans. Having a good social responsibility makes the world a better place. That is one of the many reasons to buy a Nena & Co. product. Another reason is, who wouldn't want a beautiful piece of art with a story behind it, to wear each and every day?!

Be a major "BAG LADY" like me and snag one to start 2017 off right!

Paradise City

Blogger, Photography, StyleOlivia NicoleComment

Take me back, take me back to paradise...

Recently, my family hit the road to spend a week in a paradise known as Rosemary Beach/Alys Beach. Let me just say, it was pure magic! If you've never been, you should take a visit. The architecture is impeccable and the vibe is even better. Rad images just come easy with a shoot location like this and it doesn't hurt to have your love behind the lens (becoming quite the awesome photographer). Honest, this was the best vacation to date, why, you may ask?! Well because it was our baby boy, Axel's first vacay and we just had a blast! He loved the sand, sun, and people watching, because let me be real...my son is a little nosy boy. His curiosity is one of my favorite things. Be curious, my darlin'! Mama is curious too. Look at the world, appreciate it and be your true self, always.

The following looks were inspired by my surroundings and the happiness from within. Enjoy! 

Xx,

Versatile

Blogger, Photography, StyleOlivia NicoleComment

One top. Two ways.
In my most recent blog post titled "G R O W T H", this same top was worn, just another way. Funny enough, that way was backwards. For me, I love clothing that can be versatile. As a breastfeeding mama, I need to be able to cover up at times, and other times I need some easy access to the "TATAS". Hehe!
Since I am currently still breastfeeding, a brassiere is a must. You can always show a little "modesty" by rocking a bra under a low cut top such as this one.
This Bare Anthology top is perfect for whatever I need. Any occasion, I can dress it up or dress it down. It really doesn't get much better than that, right?
To create an urban vibe, which is what I'm all about, pair this killer top with a great pair of black and white striped trousers like these from ROMWE. Throw on some boots and a turban headband like this one from I'm With The Band, and you're good to go!
