A Day In The Life: Olivia Bellas

Courvoisier UK asked CVTF500 member, and host of November’s The Future Series networking session, Olivia Bellas, to share a typical day in her life. This she did through 10 pictures.

1. Lamp
I’ve been waking up very early these days. This is the morning glow that gets me started.


2. Wristbands
A client of mine is Young Actors Theatre in Islington – just received our charity wristbands – high fashion whilst checking first emails.


3. Wrought Iron
This is the staircase at Limehouse Town Hall – I’m writing the audio script for a walk based here in December. It’s 5 mins from where I live so tend to pop in for inspirational writing moments.


4. Roof Garden
Popped out to get some fresh air – the roof garden at my studio space in Dalston. Big Sky.


5. Flyers
I’m running a series of talks in Nov, first of which as part of #thefutureseries. Some of the flyers I need to get out sharpish.


6. Banged Up
Filmmaker friend who sits next to me needs to test his set – a photo of me banged up. Quite appropriate seeing as I’m 7 months pregnant.


7. Board
I need to update my visualisation board – new business cards made it bottom left, beginning of this week.


8. Chaise Longue
Had 3 meetings on here today. They were too shy to be snapped. On another note, I need this re-upholstered – ideas?


9. Orange Line
Time to go home – do people prefer the end seat that much?


10. Feet Duvets
I don’t work in the evenings if I can help it. All that happens in that time is private but I do recommend these to give your feet some love at the end of the day.
