Olivia Palermo Covers Cosmopolitan Magazine UK June 2017 and she looks smoking hot on it!

I think this is a very pretty summery cover. The cover girl is looking so beautiful, I love her hair and makeup, and the colourful outfit.

In my early blogging days, I was a dedicated follower of Olivia Palermo’s website. I loved her personal style and enjoyed keeping up with her various looks. I have not been on her blog in years, but I still see her work around of social media, and I admire her dedication. She has made a business out of getting dressed, and is very successful at it. This Style Icon is the definition of a Girl Boss!

I would love to read Palermo’s interview with Cosmopolitan, I would love to find out how she made a business out of getting dressed.

Here are a some excerpts from her interview with Cosmo –

Childhood Struggles

“You know, everything was a bit harder for me because I grew up with a learning disability. I don’t want to go into details but… what was wonderful is that people can be very creative in different ways. And we [she refers to her childhood friend Jonathan Simkhai, a designer, to whom she was close to at school] really strived to be creative and that really evolved as we got older… and not necessarily in school.”

 

I didn’t know Olivia had a learning disability. I am happy to see she has not allowed that stop her.

 

Fashion Week Schedule

“Honestly, my schedule is so tight. I have a show on the hour every hour, and appointments. So my priority is the designers and the collections. Of course, it’s nice to change once in a while, and support the designers, if you can, by changing, but there’s not always enough time in the day.”

 

I can imagine how stressful fashion week must be for her. I don’t envy that part at all.

Ariana Grande On Cosmopolitan UK May 2017 Issue

The cute Ariana Grande covers the May issue of Cosmopolitan UK and she looks lovely as always. I love her signature ponytail hairdo, and her makeup is always on point. This is a fab cover!

I can clearly see myself reading this issue. From the topics on the cover, it looks like it would be a great read. I would love to read the “Dress like a Boss” article, “How to join the 150k Job Club”, and “Beauty Bloggers: Can we trust anything they say” articles. They sound interesting.

I do find it funny that magazines editors are mostly threatened by bloggers in general, I find it extremely flattering. I am not sure if this Beauty Bloggers article is a positive or negative article, but it is funny that many of these magazine bosses are having sleepless nights over bloggers.

I think there is more than enough room for magazines and bloggers, there should be no competition or bad blood at all. I celebrate the magazines I read, and I truly enjoy writing about them. I have been reading magazines long before I started reading blogs or writing on Fashion and Style Police, and I have a separate place in my heart for magazines and blogs. They feed a different part of me in different ways.

I like blogs because I can relate more to them, and I like magazines because I can’t relate with them, if that makes any sense. I do prefer reading blogs to magazines and that could be because I am a blogger and blogs are free!

 

 

Anyways, back to Ariana Grande. She looks gorgeous on the cover and I want to read this issue now.

Fearne Cotton Covers Cosmopolitan Magazine UK April 2017

The lovely Fearne Cotton is the cover girl for Cosmopolitan Magazine UK, and she looks great!

I love everything about this cover. I read Fearne Cotton had on her regular everyday makeup for the photoshoot, and I love that. She kept it real and why won’t she? She is a natural beauty and she slayed the cover!

I am yet to pick up this issue. I have not had the time to read as much as I should, but I am hoping to make up for that this April. I am also hoping this issue is still available on the newsstands, it looks juicy!

I have read Fearne’s letter to her 18-month old daughter, and I think it is the sweetest thing I have read in a very long time.

Here are some excerpts from the letter –

“No set-up will ever be perfect because life is not supposed to be that way. Speak openly to your partner and always listen. Love them with every inch of your heart, but only if they shower you in the same. Find someone who makes your heart sing and illuminates all your best bits.”

“But you should never underestimate your own unique qualities. They won’t be boring to others if you show them off with confidence. Trying to be someone else is the most transparent illusion of all. Be proud to be you. Now in my thirties I am very happy in my own skin.”

I found her letter so true, it spoke to me. Trying to be someone else does not work (for me anyway), so I don’t even bother. I am proud to be me, and I try to keep it real 100%. Life is too short to be anyone else.

I admire Fearne Cotton’s career and journey in life, and I am happy to see her in a good place.
