She’s baaAAAccckkkk! You heard it right, for the next three, yes, THREE full days I am home, with no suitcase in tow and no vlogging camera surgically attached to my hand. Glorious. I don’t have any of my Fashion Week content ready to grace your eyes yet, so today I thought I’d just catch you up on where life is at and what’s going on. February has been the most incredible month, so much so I can’t quite comprehend just how great things are and I’m feeling seriously #blessed. I hate that hashtag more often than not, but seriously it’s the most relevant right now.
My work with TRESemmé on their #WorkIt campaign in the earlier half of this month ended up taking me to New York City to experience NYFW with them and get a feel for their hair looks backstage and in their NYFW pop up. Experiences like this really do blow my mind and I loved the experience. I stepped up to my fear of heights and got one of my all time favourite instagram images at the top of the Empire State Building, visited the Glossier showroom and sat front row at Jenny Packham – how could I forget that one? Most amazingly of all, I was anxiety free for both plane journeys, whilst that might not mean a lot to some people, for me this is a huge deal and I came away from the entire trip beaming with pride and feeling so happy that my CBT sessions over the past six months really have started to pay off. Not only do I feel proud, I feel stronger for it, and I know I can overcome what ever life throws at me if I put my mind to it.
A couple of days after setting my feet back on UK soil, my suitcase was packed again, this time for London Fashion Week. I stayed at the Sanderson Hotel (one I would highly recommended and will most likely stay there for over Fashion Week in future), sat front row at Topshop and worked with them on a live stream of the show via my insta stories, I also attended the Muberry and Temperly shows, both of which I adore and it felt like a total dream to see three of my all time favourite shows all in the space of a few hours. I also worked with the Esteé Edit, a brand I LOVE and will be doing a post on soon because I’ve discovered a few incredible new products from them. It all ended on Tuesday night at the Naked Heart Foundation Fund Fair, which is a jaw dropping-ly gorgeous event for a great cause. It’s something I always feel very grateful to have the opportunity to attend as it really is completely magical.
And then we have Paris. I have three days at home before I pack up my things and head off to Paris for something totally magical. I’ve been invited by one of my favourite brands, and rest assured I’ll have my vlogging camera surgically attached to my hand once again! It also won’t be my last trip to the gorgeous city this month either…
And there you have it, February in a nut shell. Of course, jet lag from earlier in the month has finally hit me now I’m no longer all “go go go” so I’m looking forward to taking the next few days to regroup and re-evaluate. But I’m feeling so incredibly blessed and grateful for every opportunity this month, I am literally beaming. With taking just a little step back to reflect and look forward, I can already feel my creative brain starting to whirl again as I plan my content for this month. I really do feel like my content is finally coming together right now and this will be the year I create some really fun new videos. So without further ado, I’m going to turn the La La Land soundtrack off, wrap this up, and get on with that.
Until next time… x
