Hi, my name is Olivia and I am the creator of the online blog La Livi Lou. This is the page you can find out a bit more about me and my blog!
A little about me…
I’m 20 years old and a Politics and International Relations student (soon to be graduate) at Cardiff University. But that’s a bit boring really and not why you came to my “ABOUT” page.
I started this blog when I started university as a way to “waste my time productively”. What I didn’t realise is how much I would fall in love with blogging and the incredible blogging community! LaLiviLou is now my second blog after my first (The Printed Parade) had a few technical issues. Now, nearly two years into blogging I feel I’ve finally found my place in this busy online world.
I’m a huge fan of personal development and a strong advocate for environmental conservation. I want to use my degree and this blog to help me on a mission of humanitarian aid and sustainable development projects. I’ll be writing content aimed at helping you to help our beautiful planet (plus other awesome stuff too!)
I also will be writing about some of the amazing personal development knowledge I have learnt, and how you can learn it too. Personal development has changed my life (blimey didn’t take long for a cliche to appear), I have struggled with anxiety for a long time and at my worst I was suffering daily panic attacks that were beginning to take over my life. Now, after taking on some serious personal development I’m recovering really well. I still have bumps in my road but I’m getting stronger each day. I like to live life to the full despite the barriers I sometimes face and I want to help others do the same.
WaterAid is a charity I have a lot of passion for and in October I ran 10km for them in Bournemouth Marathon festival with my boyfriend. Never before have I run that far and quite frankly I’m super proud of myself for doing it!
I recently came back from a trip of a lifetime around South East Asia and in another incredibly cliche way, I found what I wanted from my life whilst travelling. I always knew I lived an incredibly privileged life, and after some of the things I was able to do I realised I wanted to devote my life to helping those that aren’t as fortunate as me. Being a human is so much more than just existing. It’s about having humanity and compassion.
In my final year of university, I feel I have so much more clarity in my life. Going into it with a clearer idea has filled me with so much more passion for what I’m doing.
I’ve also recently relaunched my wifi business! All the products are vegan and cruelty free so please check it out if you fancy supporting me! (Feel free to contact me if you want to get some discounts!)
Any further questions?
If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to contact me! I love getting emails about my blog and I promise to reply as quickly as I can!
