All About Me

Olivia Firth at Peggy Porschen London

Hello! I'm Olivia, a twenty-something from Yorkshire, England. I've written for Olivia Curls in its various incarnations since April 2012, so I guess I'm a bit of a grandma in terms of social media age. I work in digital marketing and like to tell people to 'have a magical day'.

I'm a huge musical theatre fan, so you're most likely to hear me attempting to make an iconic Mean Girls on Broadway joke, while hopping through little known areas of York and listening to dodie.

I like sugar free caramel flat whites, watching old Jennifer Lawrence interviews and looking at obscure Coronation Street memes from the late noughties. I'm surprised I haven't mentioned it yet, but I was once a Walt Disney World cast member, and it's the best thing that's ever happened to me. Mickey, you're the best.

    I love your blog.

  2. i love marina! what's your favourite song by her? (great blog by the way)

    1. It has to be a joint decision between Seventeen, Oh No and the Christmas version of Bubblegum Bitch, though I do love Katy B, Where Diamonds Grow and Perfect Oh from her GMTM EP. My favourite instrumental has to be Living Dead :-) Thank you x

  3. Hi, I've nominated you for The Liebster Award. I've yet to actually post my blog post about it, but I will soon and you're on it! Obviously it's your choice as to whether you do it or not etc but I enjoy your blog and thought you ought to know!
