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!?
