Day Job: GaGa’s Workshop

And the worst blogger award goes to… Sahra of EffortllessCool!

But really guys, I’m sorry. Between the bullshit that is my life, my full time seasonal gig, and preparing to move, and not having anyone to help me take photos, I’ve been totally slacking on blogging. Sorry guys!

I’ve been working SO much, almost 40 hours a week in retail, sticking to the wardrobe requirements daily.
I’ve been trying on some of the products and playing around with make up too! And taking pictures, so here are some iPhone photos for your enjoyment!

And, on one lovely Saturday at work, I was asked to meet with Francisco Nars, of Nars make up, to do some signings for customers. My friend and co worker Michelle and I couldn’t resist a photo op with Francisco and Simon Doonan.

Now the shop/boutique itself is truly magnificent, though I can’t go into detail so you’ll have to come in and see for yourself!

Independent Fashion Blogger Conference Day 2

IFB selected a few (what I thought would be 50 but was really 20) bloggers to attend a second day of the conference.  Due to the exclusivity the entire day was much more intimate feeling. The day was devoted to three workshops and held on the top floor of the fancy-pants Standard Hotel, with spectacular views, comfortable leather seating, and perrier, coffee, glass bottled soda, and fruits and vegetables to sack on.  Right on the Hudson River, this location, plus the rare February sun, made the whole experience that much more enjoyable and refreshing.

The first workshop was run by Gala Darling, who I’ve followed on BlogLovin’ and twitter. She’s rare unique blogger, who’s also very real and authentic, my kind of lady. Her collaborative discussion was the most informative and thought provoking of them all. Gala discussed how to set your blog apart, increase viewers, expand….I took a lot out of the workshop and am very excited to start implementing some new ideas.

The second and third workshop focused on business and everything I’ve been learning in school, so not particularly enthralling to me.

The girls, much closer and, as I mentioned intimate, were all friendly and talkative. LOVING Sivan of My Urban Runway ‘s accesories and glitter ombre nails here.
