Guest Post: Olivia of All Those Little Things

Hey friends, I'm having Olivia take over today with a guest post! I've been keeping up with all your blogs and promise to leave you little notes as soon as I can. In the meantime, read all about lovely Olivia, and check out the guest post I did for her blog here!
Hello all you lovely readers of Imperfect Idealist! I'm Olivia, from All Those Little Things! I first met Lily over email when she posed interest in me helping her with some blog design... after many long emails I am so happy to have founded a great friendship with another blogger and such a fabulous girl! 
All right so I'll tell you a bit about my self I suppose! 
okay to state the obvious, I LOVEEEE fashion, but you see I am a HUGE thriftfanatic, practically all of my clothes are thrifted. I mean why pay the full price (which nowadays is typically pretty pricey...) when you can get the same exact thing for as low as 99¢! Such great deals are impossible to pass up! And there are always such amazing vintage and unique things that turn up around in Goodwills and other thrift stores, so I own many things that are one of a kind and simply irresistible! 
I love brunch. 
every Sunday my dad and I go on a hunt throughout our town trying to find the perfect/best eggs Benedict and french toast/pancakes. We rate all of the restaurants and give them our own little personal reviews, it's fun we are mini food critics hahaha, it's a tradition what can I say..... 
If I could live in one outfit it would be overalls and stripes.
perfection. It's comfortable, adorable, casual and totallllly cute!
I love theatre (that's me messing around in my school theatre's costume shop hehe) I feel so natural up on stage in front of hundreds of people, whether it be acting or singing (more so singing) I just get such a great energy boost from performing...
I love photoshoots, if I am in front of the camera or behind it, doing a photoshoot with some friends or family is my favorite thing to do. If I am ever sad, down or however blue, I just pick out a super cute outfit, grab my camera and I'm out the door! Then editing and uploading the photos to my blog is a joy too... It always makes me happy no matter what, I just love doing it!
I am a big fan in expressing myself through my hair/hairstyles. I have tried, long (never past my shoulders though because I change it so much ha!) super short, ombré, blonde, blonde that kind of failed and turned into an orange, super dark... I've done it all, or so all to the extent my mother is willing to let me do...  
I have maiden braids in here... I love braiding, I kind of have a knack for it I guess heheh...
right now, I have a short Katie Holmes/Karlie Kloss inspired haircut, I asked to go back to my natural brownish color, but it was a little darker than anticipated..... ehh.... I still like it though :)
It's all the little things in life that make me the happiest.... Like snow... when it snows, boy am I happy.. It's the beautiful dark trees outlined in pure white lining and the ground all around a bright crisp white, absolutely breath taking. 
I just turned 16 on the 28th of January and it feels grrrrreat!!! Honestly... no different than 15 really. 
So that's me in a nutshell! Thanks for reading, and check out my blog every now and then :)

Thanks for having me Lily!
