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