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.

How to be a Girl Boss

The term “girl boss” was created by Sophia Amoruso, the founder of Nasty Gal an online retail store specializing in fashion clothing for young women, which is currently being filed for bankruptcy. But let us forget that is happening for now, and just focus on how to be a Girl Boss.

Sophia Amoruso also wrote a book with the same name #GIRLBOSS, which became a best seller. I had the privilege of finally reading the book some months ago, and I was blown away by Sophia Amoruso’s hustle. She is the real Girl Boss.




Her fascinating success story is one of selling used clothes on eBay in 2006 to owning a $100 million retail business in 2014. Sophia is indeed a hustle and I admire her hustle regardless of whatever is going on with her business currently.

Here are some things you can learn from her and get your business going.

  1. Do what you love

If you want to be a girl boss, your focus has to be on what gives you the most joy and satisfaction. You’re more likely to succeed in doing something that you love than doing something just for the pay check. Love is a powerful motivator. If you do something you love, you’re sure to hang on until the end.

  1. Wake up early everyday

The way you start your day will affect the rest of your day. Girl bosses know that starting the day early will increase productivity as the most important tasks are done before noon. And from getting most of your work done early, you’ll also have enough time to enjoy the most important meal of the day: breakfast. Late risers usually skip breakfast as they have to quickly rush through the day to get work done. Early risers are girl bosses. I was once a dedicated early riser. I need to go back to being that.

  1. Efficiently manage your time

As a girl boss you’re aware that every second counts and that time wasted can never be gotten back. You need to learn how to organize your day and stick to a daily schedule. I know this can be hard on some days because I sometimes struggle to keep to my schedule but a schedule help keep the focus on what needs to be done. Knowing what to do and when to do it will help you work smart and efficiently.




  1. Take control of your finances

How will you be a successful girl boss if you take control of your finances? Track your income and your expenses. Identify where all your money is going to and how you’re spending your money. Are you spending your money on important things? Is what you’re spending money on going to help you grow your business? The answer to those questions will help you know if you’re putting your money to good use. Never be afraid to explore opportunities that will help you increase your level of income. The idea is to make more money than you spend.

  1. Put in hard work and dedication

Nothing good comes easy. If you want the best out of your life and business then you need to be ready to work hard for it. Put in your best in whatever task that comes before you.

There’s one thing girl bosses do that makes them stand out. Unlike others who would “slave” through their work, girl bosses actually love working hard. To them hard work is not something you tick off your to-do list. It’s a process. If you want to succeed you should not only work hard but love working hard.

  1. Believe in the power of positive thinking

You have the power to create your own reality but it all starts with intently focusing on the positive. If you want good things to happen to you then you need to first believe it will happen and gravitate your thoughts towards it actually happening. The law of attraction is powerful and girl bosses know how to make good use of it.
