About Me

“Do one thing everyday that scares you.” – Eleanor Roosevelt


My name is Linda and thank you for stopping by!

Just to give you a basic glimpse into my life, I work full-time as a Business Improvement Analyst, I am 28-years-young, I am married with my partner of 10 years, I have a tertiary background in chemical engineering, I am paying off an exuberant mortgage and I am the mother of two high-maintenance fur-babies, Winter and Blue.

And more importantly, I am a woman that adores her life. I am one of the lucky ones and every day feels like another blessing. I am happy, I am healthy and I am surrounded by loved ones that are incredibly supportive and kind-hearted.

But with that being said, I have suddenly become too aware of just how fast my life is going. And that I am losing time, missing moments and forgetting memories. My weeks are shooting pass me and a single year is starting to feel like a mere month.

So I started this blog because:

  • I want to start making the most of now,
  • I want to get to know my creative self, and;
  • I want to invest time and energy into something that is for me.

“The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.” – Oprah Winfrey

“Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work, driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying off, in order to get to a job that you need so you can pay for the clothes, car and the house that you leave empty all day in order to afford to live in it.” – Ellen Goodman

Olive and Clo is a creative platform where I come to totally and unapologetically be myself, ramble on about the things that interest me, share my experiences and share my love for beautiful destinations and floral dresses.

And lastly, I thank you for stopping by and I hope you find something that you enjoy!
