Hello, and welcome to Mandy Olive!
I’m glad you’re here! My name is Mandy, and it’s so lovely to meet you!
Let me tell you a little about what you will find here…
Mandy Olive is a lifestyle blog focused on building a life that is genuinely magazine-worthy. Especially in the age of the internet, we see incredible food, perfectly organized homes, and women who always look put together, which leaves us wondering how do they do it?
You’ll find those tips here. Even behind all of the staging and photoshop, it’s achievable. We’ll cook fresh, awe-inspiring dishes (most are easy to prepare and made in about 30 minutes!) that will sincerely wow every guest. Plus, provide you with pointers that’ll help you elevate your style, organization, and productivity.
I’m on a journey, and I hope you’ll join me.
My goal is always to feel polished, productive, and organized within every aspect of my life. One way I achieve this by cooking vibrant, gratifying, restaurant-worthy meals, which include ingredients that are extraordinary in both senses of the word. I pay special attention to foods that are good for your overall well-being, and some that may not be in an everyday kitchen. For instance, simple swaps like using fennel in place of onion, bring your dish to a whole new level. I’m a firm believer that food should be vibrant, not diet. However, it doesn’t have to be complicated. Most of the recipes you’ll find here are pretty simple.
But let me tell you something
I’m a sucker for junk food: street tacos, burgers, wings. I want it all, so you’ll find the right mix of healthy-ish and junk food recipes on this blog. I mean, I’ll be honest with you, salads are my least favorite, so I try to make healthier foods.
My favorite meal is a bacon cheeseburger, cheese curds (or cheese fries) & a chocolate malt. I could eat that almost every day. It’s too bad the only thing that’s good for is my soul – Hard eye roll*
In the future, I will be adding lifestyle posts to this blog. Those posts will be about all the things I enjoy, including style (and beauty) tips, tricks, and ideas for better productivity and organization.
The biggest thing I want you to gain from my website is this…
You don’t have to pretend to have your life together; you can actually obtain it. So, join me on my journey to serve vibrant food and build better lives. Let’s forge the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of.
P.S. I changed my site from The Glamorous Mak to Mandy Olive, so if you see The Glamorous Mak somewhere, that’s why!
