Live Olive: Laura Decker

Laura Decker

As you know I am an avid adventurer and can hoist a sail or saddle a wild pony or shake a tail feather as well as the next girl.

But my dears, let’s do take our hats off to lovelies like Miss Laura Dekker.

Hailing from Holland, Miss D. who is just 16 (!), traveled an amazing 27,000 nautical miles around the world  – all by her lonesome!

This January, Laura completed her truly astounding journey, after multiple stops in ports all around the globe.

As she pulled into her final destination of St. Maartens, the young adventurer said, “I have already learned very much about myself along the way.”

I am certain she has!

On behalf of unstoppable ladies everywhere, I’d like to give Sailor Dekker a hearty salute.


Ahoy my dears! The seas of life await!


Olive Goil: Zoe Bell


As you know, my dears, I am quite an athlete and always, also do my own stunts – be it dancing or cliff diving or swimming away from sharks … and I am therefore always impressed by young ladies who can do the same.

There is, in my mind, no better lady stunt person then the fabulous Miss Zoe Bell, a class act from New Zealand who can leap tall buildings in a single bound. Miss Bell is the gal who rides the motorcycles, leaps off ledges and climbs astride two racing cars in Hollywood moves – all with total ease…

She is the one that makes it look easy for Hollywood starlets to appear as if they are capable of all that derring-do…

Oh, Zoe. Isn’t she just the grandest goil!?

Olive Loves: Unif “Hellbounds” Shoe


You know about the love affair between me and shoes… oh shoes!

And I am just thrilled to pieces to dish about these newest from Unif, very fittingly dubbed the “Hellbounds” shoe”!

Aren’t they just amazing?  Exactly perfect for kicking up your heels, prancing on the deck and running for the hills!

And my lovelies, check out the two sets of laces that come with…one of them is bright and unapologetic and multicolored and mad… just like me…

Oh life is too too good!

Olive Goil: Elissa Steamer

Elissa Steamer

My lovelies, there are gals that really do inspire moí and Elissa Steamer is one of them!

A fearless, funny lady, Elissa is on the first girls ever to become a pro-skateboarder and continues to this day to put the boys to shame. She’s won medals and awards and spends her days traveling the world spreading the good news of girls on board…She is the princess of the park and she rolls like nobody’s business. Let’s give her a salute, shall we?

Here’s to women who rock the boat!
