Purging & rebuilding feels so dang gooooooooood!!! Get rid of the stuff that you constantly second guess or better yet, get a second set of eyes to help you see things differently! Maybe items will go but just maybe you’re sitting on treasures just waiting to be styled and worn!
Is it faded? Misshapen after the laundry? Worn? Pitted out? Does it fit a little weird? Does it wash you out? Does it make you feel boring or insecure?? Get rid of it!! There is nothing that can’t be replaced for something you’ll love & feel confident in!

Today has been one of those days, ya know the kind where you’re left asking, “what the eff is happening?” Yeah, they blow big time! It’s so like us humans to sit and wallow or invest all of our worries into rough situations; but let me just say that is not how I’m going to live my life! If we spent as much time believing we CAN, we ARE good enough, we DO have what it takes and actually DOING something to change our circumstances and a whole lot less time being crippled by fear of what might never even happen, then my God we would be much healthier people. So, here’s to staring a tricky situation in the face and throwing a solid knee jab straight to its undercarriage! You are worth the fight to make your life what you’ve always wanted! Go get em girl!

Did you know that with a personal stylist we work right in the comfort of your own home?! We can drink coffee or wine, eat some tasty treats, put on your favorite music and get to work on curating your personal style and building an exciting wardrobe around it!
I frequently hear how uninspired women feel the second they step foot into their closet and that is not something we should be carrying along with all of our other responsibilities! Imagine a world where, when you’re in a hurry you can walk into your closet to throw something on and the only problem you run into is that you love everything so much you can’t decide what to pick! Yes, please!! We all get tired of our clothes, but it doesn’t have to happen all at once! Replacing only a few pieces is so much easier than a complete overhaul; with a personal stylist you can strategically replace items to build a wardrobe you’re proud of! I LOVE what I do & I want to help you! Visit www.livstyled.com to read some inspiring testimonials and to discover how I can best help you! .

•Worry about loving yourself instead of loving the idea of other people loving you• Easier said than done sometimes, huh? We all strive for acceptance & validation – we were created with a need for those things! The problem is when we try and attain them by being someone we think others might love and are too insecure to be who we really are with fear of rejection.
I’m not funny enough. My teeth are too crooked. My house isn’t full of expensive things. I don’t wear designer brands so I’m not legit. Those are all lies I’ve had to overcome in my own life, things that have hindered me in the past from believing in who I am & what I’m capable of. Honestly, things I genuinely don’t care about anymore thanks to the grace of God! I am Olivia Fitzpatrick – first a wife, then a mother & lastly a stylist. I’m just a girl trying to live my best life – a life that leaves a legacy of honesty, kindness & inspiration. I hope to be a truer version of the love of Jesus than the Christians who think they’re worthy of throwing the first stone. I hope to be a relatable friend, mother, wife and business woman – a place others can find belonging & encouragement. My dream isn’t to be a famous stylist; my dream is to let the Lord work through me, my business & through my experience as a mom and simply hold on through the adventure! He is capable of doing more with my life than I could ever hope, dream or imagine! My only concern these days is if I’m positioned and ready for Him to use at any moment, whether it’s in my kids lives, a strangers or in my work. I might not always love certain things about myself but I will give Him the room to help me see myself & others through His eyes to the best of my ability.

Need I (ok fine, need she) say more?! This couldn’t be more perfectly written. We have the capability to live a life that offers joy, security, sisterhood & hope! A life that leaves a legacy of Gods goodness. Our lives are short, we have one life to let Him work through us. One life to let Him open (some killer-awesome-once-in-a-life-time) doors we could never open on our own and one life to live in freedom from jealousy, comparison & bitterness! I mean let’s be real – we’re human, we have raw and real emotions and struggles; I’m not sure about you perfect people but some of those struggles *ahem, self doubt, ahem* I battle with often but make the choice, to the best of my ability to surrender. Even more realness, sometimes it feels absolutely impossible to stop those thoughts & feelings from invading every moment of my day. But the good news is, His mercy is new every morning & there He is, arms out stretched waiting to carry our burdens for us… yet again.
