The Many Faces of O

27 Sep

Want to know what I like to do when I’m bored?   I like to sneak off with Mommy’s iPad or phone and take lots of random photos. And I mean lots of photos. Like I’ll take them until it won’t let me anymore because I’ve filled the whole thing up– or sometimes just until the battery dies. This, of course, drives mommy crazy because she gets stuck with a phone and/or ipad that’s either dead (and usually difficult to find) or has no room left on it (and sometimes  if I’ve been really busy, it’s both). That’s why I have to be sneaky about it.

When I got home from school yesterday, I still wasn’t allowed to watch t.v. So, I decided it was a good day to do a little photography, to keep my brain from being bored. This time I decided to do self portraits. 89  of them to be exact. At least, that’s what Mommy told me when she busted me in the middle of my photo shoot.

She wasn’t very happy about my sneakiness, but she did admit she liked my work. This video is a slideshow she made out of all my photos from yesterday. I hope you like them!

[NOTE FROM MOMMY: Please ignore my sloppy editing. I wanted to polish this up a bit, but didn’t have time. I had to throw this together pretty quickly– though I think it still turned out pretty well, all things considered..   Oh, and I promise Olive is NOT wearing lipstick or makeup in these pictures! It kind of looks like she is because she shot these in an app with a photo filter. Enjoy!]

Olive’s “Self-Portraits” Slideshow:

[ANOTHER QUICK NOTE:   The song in the video is A-Punk by Vampire Weekend.  Adding music to the slideshow was kind of an afterthought, but this song fit so perfectly, I couldn’t help myself!]

Today is Random Video Day

16 Sep
{A post from Mommy…}

Olive reviewed her new Rainbow Dash Pony over the weekend, but it’s going to be another day or two before I get it posted (She did it in several separate clips and I’m having to do more editing than normal). So, in the meantime I thought I’d entertain you all with a few random videos that I found when doing a little file cleaning / maintenance on my mac this morning.

I will do my best to get the latest OLUVS TOYS review up very soon. ‘Til then, please enjoy yourself on Random Video Day!



VIDEO 1     One of the many “practice” toy review videos Olive made this summer (on toys she already owned). Features excellent, melodramatic use of the thick-framed, black glasses O inexplicably decided to sport while making this video.*

VIDEO 2    A little blast from the past–  Young Baby O, singing her short-cut version of The ABC’s (in between laughing fits and cracking up at herself). Includes a bonus version of  The  ABC’s with some sweet drums added.

VIDEO 3     Another oldie but goodie– Olive is singing the Baby O Classic, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  The last two videos were both taken around the same time– which was in the summer of 2010, a few months before O turned two.

*A quick note on O’s toy reviews:  We’ve had a couple of people who have asked how much of the videos are scripted– or if Olive is being fed lines.  To answer those questions– none, and nope.  In fact, most of the time, she makes us go into another room. If we ever talk to her while she’s recording, it’s usually just to tell her to wrap it up because she’s gotta go to bed. So it’s just her, and she’s pretty much winging it as she goes –  it helps that she’s picked up a lot of toy industry lingo and youtube-lingo from the gazillion toy reviews she’s watched. 


Cute Things I Love

13 Sep

These are some very very  cute things I found on another blog called Cute Overload. If you like cute things then looking at these pictures should make you pretty happy. They definitely made me happy.  I couldn’t stop laughing all night, I have to warn you though, this first one may be the cutest thing you have ever seen in your life..

Tiny Kitten In A Mushroom Dress

If I ever have another kitten, I’m going to ask Mommy to make it a mushroom dress.

Some Silly Looking Llamas

Mommy says these are “moofy faces.” She’s right. They do look a little… moofy. Also, the second one looks like my dog Gioux (if you snuck up on him and  surprised him).


I have to go now. Mommy says I can only do two for now because she has other stuff to do. Maybe I’ll post more cute things some other time. I probably will because, if there is one thing I love, it’s cute animals.
