Make Summer 2017 the Best One Yet!

Summer! It’s here!

In fact, it’s been summer for a while now. I love summer, and not just because we don’t have school. 😉 The best part about it is that I have countless hours to just do whatever I want.

I always set high expectations for summer and any other breaks from school. And I don’t always meet these expectations (even though I always tell myself this time I will). And this time, I really am going to try succeed. Today I will be sharing my tips for having a summer where you walk away feeling relaxed and energized instead of looking back and thinking, why did I waste so much time.

Reinvented//Episode 1: Ways I Find Inspiration

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a great day- and can you believe it’s already been April for over a week?! This year has been going by so quickly.

Welcome to the first episode of Purely Olivia’s newest series: Reinvented. I’ve been piecing this together in my mind for a while now, so I’m really looking forward to finally doing it. Reinvented is going to be when I randomly find a post from my old blog and then reinvent it create a new post! For example, if the old post talks about a library trip I took, the new post could be reasons I love libraries. Make sense?

For today’s post, I’m taking this old post about inspiration and changing it up to talk about how I find inspiration! You can feel free to read the post from my old blog, but I assure you that it’s horrific and I got embarrassed just skimming it.
