So, you want to know what bloggers do?
Don't worry, I’ve heard it before: the idea that we just flutter about to events, sip on champagne and have a good ol’ laugh all day, every day (and obsess over Instagram likes) is much less than accurate
Yes, there is a bit of fluttering and sipping and laughing, that's for sure, but the hard work we've done behind the scenes for our followers is not always apparent. I love what I do, and I'm so grateful for where I am in life and how far I've come now. I never thought it'd be as big as it's gotten, the new skills I have learned and can share with others continue to amaze me every day. It’s why I still, to this day, work 110% on all my content so that my followers can keep enjoying what I do.
So, what do I really do? Let me do a timeline- kinda of like, a day in a life of a fashionable fashion fox... hah!
Every morning I wake up at 8.30 am, I check my emails and make myself a coffee. Instant coffee of course... I’m classy like that. Sometimes, a brand will reach out to me and other I'll reach out to them - either way, there’s sure to be something interesting in my inbox.
After I've replied to my emails, I make a content list checklist, of all the blog posts I need to write, and events I have attended or need to attend. During this same time, I'll be liking photos on Instagram, and commenting and sharing our fashion photos!
From there, I read Vouge, Elle and a few fashion sites to write down key ideas that might interest my readers, or me. It’s also how I develop my vocabulary - reading other editorials is a dream for a new language!
Then I write half of each article I’m working on, and by the time I’ve finished that, it’s probably about 11am.
I tend to take a break from writing and edit photos I've taken over the few weeks, ready for Instagram. After I've edited each photo, I email them to myself and create my Instagram photos from there, with hashtags galore!
From there my day could go a few ways:
A) If I’m doing some behind the scene works for a brand, I may head off to attend a meeting with them. Here we get to share our ideas and chat about their exciting up and coming collections. Currently, I'm writing a proposal for a brand for an exciting collaboration coming up next year, so stay tuned for that.
B) If I’ve got some raw material ready to locate, I might head out for an on-location photo shoot. I’ve recently been trying to get out to the city more often to photograph my #ootd. Sometimes, I create a mood board beforehand, and other times the idea will just spring to mind and off I go!
C) The super fun part of the gig: EVENTS! I get to see so many different things and meet the most fantastic people - it's unbelievable and so exciting. But it’s not all fun and games - after I've had fun at an event comes to the extensive night time event write up. No pain, no gain; right?
Then, I do it all over again the next day, but every day is just a little different. Some days I'll just write, edit photos or take photos. Sometimes there won't be any events for months! Then there’ll be one on every day of the week....
It's an exciting blog life I lead, but hard work always pays off foxes. Never forget that.
This little number is pretty spiffy hey! I was actually thinking after I photographed this top from Livingstone Cooper that I could layer it with a shirt too! Perhaps for fashun week?
