August BOTM

Believe it or not, August is almost over. Gracious where did the time go?!!

As you all know every month I pick one of my favorite bloggers to feature as my blog of the month,. This time around I picked Danielle from Olive Juice and S'mores and I am so glad I did. Ya'll this woman is so sweet and personable and it was truly a blessing to meet and develop a blogger friendship with her!

Below you will find our interview, my third of the week if you can believe it, and I'm sure by the end of it you'll adore Danielle as much as I do!


Where are you from, and where do you currently live?
I am originally from Greensboro, NC but I currently reside in the Giant Peach aka Georgia. I've been living in Atlanta for a little over three years now and I've been loving every minute of it!

Olive Juice and S'mores is such an interesting name! What's the story behind it?
It's a play on words. Olive Juive and S'mores translates to "I love you, and some more." My blog represents all of the things I have grown to love and enjoy in life, and some more!

How would you describe your blog to someone who hasn't visited your site before?
My blog can be described as a source of inspiration-whether it be food, fashion, or love, life and the pursuit of happiness. I tend to blog about the mood I'm currently in, but I always strive to leabe my readers feeling encouraged and uplifted.

I love your natural hair! What are some of your favorite products?
Thank you! Currently, my favorite beauty products include castor oil, Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, and Eco Styler gel. These are my staple items! 

The oil is great for deep conditioning, and the moisturizer and gel are great for bantu knots, twist-outs and wash n' go's. You really can't go wrong with these three in my opinion.

How would you describe your style? What are your favorite pieces for summer?
I don't really have one specific style- it's more of a hodgepodge of styles combined. Kind o like a shape-shifter, which I didn't think was really possible until now. I always dress how I feel, which could be casual, preppy, edgy, sassy or sophisticated.

My favorite summer pieces currently include anything that's sheer, light-weight and breathable. This goes for dresses, skirts, tops and anything else you can think of!

What's been your most rewarding moment as a blogger?
Hearing people say that something I posted inspired them.

What is your ultimate goal for Olive Juice and S’mores?
My ultimate goal for OJS is for it to continue to be a source of creativity, positivity and inspiration for my readers. Life is too short not to relish in all of the great things it has to offer us. It’s enough love to go around for everyone and I find that it comes back to me two-fold when I freely share it with others. So anyone interested in collaborating – I’m your girl!

Describe a time of Gorgeous Chaos in your own life?
I would say my most recent trip to Europe. It had been three years since my very first international trip to Vietnam. There were times of uncertainty and nervousness, but looking at everything in hindsight, it was a once in a lifetime experience I know I’ll never forget! I’m really grateful for the people I met and the memories I created with them.

What’s your favorite fashion accessory?
 Confidence – because you can make any outfit look great if you have the confidence to rock it in your own special way!

What’s your favorite meal?
Would it be unfair if I picked more than one? I’m a sucker for Southern, Italian and Mexican food. I can’t live without it!
