livblankson | Meet the Insta

We FINALLY get to write about our absolute favorite person evaaaa @livblankson. If you already clicked her handle, you probably immediately thought, “Wow, how is she so freakingggg talented!” (we gasp every time we look at her account too). She also blogs. Like honestly, it’s not even fair.

DISCLAIMER before reading: We literally love Liv, so this is going to be a completely biased blog post. Sorry, not sorry. She is just so talented and so sweet that you can’t help but fall in love with her.

You neeeeed to read and "liv" 😉 on her blog (! *Like, seriously. Do it.
Now, on to the questions!


Okay Liv, tell the world who you are, what you do, and why you do it?

I am Liv, formally known as Olivia but don't call me that unless you're interviewing or REALLY mad at me. I'm a part-time fashion blogger, full-time astrology enthusiast. Lol JK, I also manage social media and do freelance content creation.


What camera do you use to capture these pictures?

I have my lil' best friend LUMIX gf6 but for out and about shots, when I've left him feeling sorry for himself at home, I gotta just use my good old iPhone 6s.


Who usually takes the photos that you’re in?

Boyf or sis. They are extremely patient 💁


Who do you respect/look up to the most?

It will always be my Ma and Sis. The two first ladies I ever met (aside from probably the nurse) and I love 'em dearly.


What do you do for fun?

What DON'T I do! Lol, that's also a joke. I'm an unashamed granny, who would always favour a night in with the fam or friends, and I'm not afraid to admit it. I also take pictures. And draw.

Your food pics are to die for! What’s your favorite type of food?

I'm actually one of the fussiest people you'll meet when it comes to food. But give me anything based around chicken, chorizo, halloumi, or peppers and I'm faceplanting it.


Do people recognize you when you walk around London?

I've actually only been recognized twice in my hometown, Brighton. London is FAR too large! (/I'm not even popular)


What’s your go-to outfit?

Jeans, smart shoesies and a baggy tee. Ultimate cool, comfort-y chic.


Who are you most like in your family?

OOOOH TRICKY. I have traits of both my mum and sister but none at all of my dad. Us girls are all worriers and over-thinkers, but my mum is an extremely caring people-pleaser and I've been told I can be the same. It doesn't always work in our favour!!


Coffee or tea?

No question. Hot chocolate.


Where do you shoP?? your style is so fire!

I shop EVERYWHERE, but the usuals: H&M, Zara and Mango are my faves. I'm not really a Topshop gal 😱 shock horror!


What’s your ideal day (from the waking up to going to bed) ?

My ideal day is not leaving bed; but if I have to, a day exploring a brand new city with one of my favourite people and my best bud camera.


What’s your ideal date?

DATE?! I don't do dates, but the same as above wouldn't garner a frown.


Is there a quote or saying you try to live by?

These are always gunna be cliché but 'whatever will be, will be' has helped me through a load of anxious, panicky times. I truly believe everything happens for a reason.


Where do you want to travel next?



If you could tell your younger self one thing, what would it be?

Worry less. It's not worth it. (Still working on that.)


If you could design your own house, where would it be and what would it look like?

All I want is a light, airy penthouse, looking over a pretty city.


Who is your favorite music artist?

I adore Drake (obv), Jack Garratt, Bryson Tiller, PARTYNEXTDOOR... Gunna stop because I could go on forever.

What do you edit your photos in?

WHERE DO I BEGIN? For iPhone photos, Afterlight, LITELY and occasionally facetune if I need to desaturate a background. Though, I have slightly changed my theme so more colours are allowed at the party. WOO!


Wait, can we let everyone know how insanely gifted you are at drawing? How are you so talented?

Well, that made me feel warm and fuzzy! It's been a passion of mine since being a lil' frizzy-haired girl. I think if you have a love for something, there's no way you can fail at it. It has taken a back seat slightly since the digital world has overcome most of my life, but I will never let it die!


What’s your personality type? how would you describe yourself?

I'm not good at that. I'll leave that for other people to judge! hahahah 🙈


What are some of your pet peeves?

Bad grammar. Rudeness. People who walk slow and take up the entire pavement. The staff in Zara. People touching me with their feet. I have a lot of pet peeves to do with humans 😂 😂


What’s your favorite brand evaaa?

That's another difficult question. I think in terms of popular brands, you can't beat Mango for style and quality. It's also seen around less than other well-known stores. For newbies, I've fallen in love with the brand 'LOÉIL' - it is seriously beautiful. For designer? Chloe girl, all the way. Now to save up for my first bag 😖


Can we swap lives?

Yes please! As long as I get to keep my family and boyfriend then we're good. I'm coming to LA, baby!


Anything else you want to add?

That I think you're all fabulous and magical, and I want you to adopt me as part of the business. ✨
