REDKEN flew this little fox up to Sydney for MBFWA, AKA Sydney fashion week, aka the best week ever to celebrate fashion! I was in Sydney for 48 hours, literally. But why you ask? To be part of the #BlondageArmy of course! I partnered with REDKEN for the new launch of their latest and greatest product for blondes! The new range is called "Blondage" it's a shampoo & conditioner colour extend. The UltraViolet Pigment and Proteins in both shampoo & conditioner removes yellow tones (brassiness) and enhances shinier, healthier blonde hair. Since, of course, my blog is called Le Blonde Fox, it was a perfect collaboration. It was a whirlwind of a time, but an exciting one at that. So below, I've written I did in 48 hours for you beautiful foxes!
PS if you don't want to read the whole article if you scroll to about 11 am, that's where I've written about the runway shows.
The night before...
Feeling like a little kid like the night before Christmas, I was full of excitement. I didn't know what to wear, and yet, here was me preaching to others to pre-plan their outfits a week before fashion week.... pfft yeah right, I didn't do this! I had no idea because I wasn't planning on going to fashion week this year, so it was really unexpected! I quickly put together two outfits and packed them into my pink Juno. This suitcase is my go-to when travelling, so for a 48-hour trip, it was just perfect! I packed my make up, booked my cab for 6 am and laid out my "jet-setter" outfit for the plane.

The day of MBFWA 2018 #BLONDAGEARMY
5 am: I woke up early because my flight was leaving at 7.30 am. I had a shower, prepped my skin, which was my skincare routine and foundation. I decided instead of having a full face of makeup during the flight that I'll do it in the cab in Sydney instead.
6 am: The taxi arrived, I scooted out the door with my luggage and hopped into the cab. It was still pitch black outside as we drove to the airport. When we arrived, I checked in using my phone and went on through to the terminal and grabbed a coffee. While I was waiting to board, I received a text to attend another show for the day! I had only planned to see one show when I had arrived. The second was Emilia Wickstead down at Coogee beach. I was super excited.
7.30 am: I boarded my flight, put my headphones in and listen to John Mayer on repeat. I might, or might not have a slight obsession with his new song out right now "New Light", and it may or may not have been on repeat for the duration of the whole flight. I refuse to confirm or deny any of the above.
During the flight, I looked out the window and checked out the clouds, pinching myself! I was so excited.
9.30 am: I arrived in Sydney, and the sun was shining! I hopped into a cab, and during my ride to the hotel, I quickly applied my make up for the day. The cabbie caught my eye in the reversion mirror, we both laughed. Of course, I did my signature look, the winged eyeliner.
10.15 am: (legit) En route to the Carriageworks. I grabbed a coffee inside the venue and met with my REDKEN team. We went backstage so I could get my hair done for the day. I had not one hairdresser, but three curling my hair. Backstage had the most amazing vibe.
