10 rules to survive the Fashion Week

Fashion weeks are over and you’ve saw some bloggers day by day, running from a show to another in all four fashion capitals.

If you think this is easy, you are wrong. Just who has been there can understand what is really going on. It is true that in the first season adrenaline is high. Everything new, you learn how things work and feel so much feet pain, hunger or fatigue.

In time, however, when certain things become routine (not talking about the collections, you always wait them anxiously) you start to become conscious of the more basic needs of the body.

Each blogger has little tricks to survive this period. Personally I do not know if I could last more than 2 FW / season. Perhaps only with sneakers.😀

Today I will share some of the tricks I use in those crazy weeks. If you’re a beginner blogger I am sure this will be useful for you.

1.I try to have, as much as I can, spacious bags. Stylish, but spacious.

2. I carry a pair of ballet or slippers with me. After I finished the show,a photo shoot or the crazy street photography part, I change my shoes. But sometimes they do not fit in the bag and in the next day a pair of heels become very uncomfortable.

3. I carry bars and protein powders / superfoods with me. I skip meals often and between shows a healthy snack is welcome. I had with me this year, about 15 Vegis bars. Actually, I have at home similar snacks and seeds, in the car. They help you not to binge eat.

4. I use more cleaning face masks. When I change the climate and I use makeup everyday, my  skin tends to look charged. At NYFW I used Egg Pore Blackhead Steam Balm, a very efficient gel for blackheads, pores dirt and dead skin. It warms the skin, increases blood flow, pores open and the cleaning part is easier. In addition, the egg-shaped container is the most original ever. In some nights I combined it with StriVectin Overnight Perfecting Micro-Concentrate and X-treme Rexaline Fusion. You can find them in Sephora Romania.

5. Cleaning is always followed by intense moisturizing. Serums, creams and massage work wonders for a tired face. Sometimes I use masks that I can leave on my face all night. They work better when I sleep. Dr. Brand’s Beauty Sleep Serum &  3-D filler mask are amazing.

6. I save 3 phone numbers, from hairdressing salons in the area. I never know when an emergency occurs, so rather I rather be prepared.

7.I buy a SIM phone in that country. I have internet all the time, I can post, I can search for show addresses and talk on whats up with my family, etc.

8. I use Uber. No tips, decent cars and prices generally better than conventional taxis. When you wear super heels the subway is not an option, believe me. Maybe someday I’ll afford a  a driver 😂😂😂. Then I woke up.

9. Staying with more friends is always a good option. I paid less for better service. In addition more fun and help also. Only the crowded bathroom is a problem if you are all bloggers. If you have seen my NY snaps you know what I mean.

10.I try to set my photoshoots from home or travel with a photographer. I’m lucky that my boyfriend, Rares, is a photographer and when we can afford to travel together we combine business with pleasure. Before I went with Iuliana at FW. But when I didn’t plan with a photographer, I remained with unpublished outfits or with bad photos. For a blogger, having a good photographer, is super important.

Same happened with this outfit also. So, I gathered a couple of photos from my SM account to illustrate this color invasion.
I’m wearing Styland suit and  shoes paired with this wonderful bag / clutch from Boite de Merveilles.

 Tocmai s-au incheiat saptamanile modei, iar pe unii bloggeri i-ati vazut zi de zi, alergand de la un show la altul, in cele 4 capitale ale modei.

Daca vi se pare ca este foarte usor, va inselati. Doar cine a fost acolo poate sa inteleaga ce se intampla cu adevarat. Este adevarat ca in primul sezon doza de adrenalina este mare. Totul nou, inveti mersul lucrurilor si nu simti atat de tare durerea crunta de picioare, foamea sau oboseala.

In timp insa, cand anumite lucruri devin rutina ( nu vorbim despre colectii. Pe ele le asteptam mereu cu sufletul la gura) incepi sa devii constient din ce in ce mai mult de nevoile primare ale organismului.

Fiecare blogger are mici trucuri, ca sa supravietuiasca cat mai bine in aceasta perioada. Personal nu stiu daca as putea rezista mai mult de 2 FW/sezon. Poate doar incaltata in adidasi.😀

Astazi am sa impartasesc cateva din trucurile pe care le folosesc in acele saptamani nebune. Daca esti un blogger la inceput de drum sunt sigura ca o sa iti fie de folos.

1.Incerc sa am, pe cat posibil genti incapatoare. Stylish, dar incapatoare.

2. Car o pereche de balerini, papuci cu mine. Dupa ce am terminat show-ul, sedinta foto sau nebunia de la street photography imi schimb incaltarile. Uneori insa nu imi incap in geanta, iar a 2a zi orice pereche de incaltari devine inconfortabila.

3. Car batoane si pudre proteice/superalimente cu mine. Sar des peste mese si intre drumuri este bine venita o gustare sanatoasa. Anul acesta am avut cu mine, cam 15 batoane de la Vegis. De fapt gustari similare si seminte am si acasa, in masina. Te ajuta sa nu dai iama in prostii.

4. Folosesc mai des masti de curatare. Cand schimb clima, aerul si ma machiez zi de zi tenul meu se incarca mult mai repede. La NYFW am folosit Egg Pore Blackhead Steam Balm, un gel foarte eficient, pentru indepartarea punctelor negre, mizeria din porii deschisi si celulele moarte ale pielii. Incalzeste pielea, circulatia sangelui creste, porii se deschid, iar curatarea se face foarte usor. In plus, ambalajul in forma de ou este cel mai original ever. In unele seri l-am combinat cu Strivectin Overnight Micro-Perfecting Concentrate si Rexaline X-treme Fusion. Le gasiti si in Sephora Romania

5. Curatarea este urmata intotdeauna de hidratare intensa. Seruri, creme si masaj fac minuni pe o fata obosita. Uneori folosesc si masti, pe care le pot lasa toata noaptea pe fata. Isi fac efectul mult mai bine cand dorm. Beauty Sleep Serum si 3-D filler mask de la Dr Brandt sunt geniale.

6. Caut 3 numere de telefon, de la saloane de coafura din zona. Nu stiu niciodata, cand intervine o urgenta, asa ca prefer sa fiu pregatita.

7. Imi cumpar cartela de telefon din tara respectiva. Am net tot timpul, pot sa postez, sa caut adresele show-urilor sau sa vorbesc pe whats up cu familia, etc

8. Folosesc Uber. No tips, masini decente si preturi, in general mai bune decat taxiurile clasice. Cand sunt incaltata pe super tocuri, metroul nu este o varianta credeti-ma. Poate intr-o zi o sa imi permit sofer😂😂😂. Dupa care m-am trezit.

9. Cazarea cu mai multi prieteni este intotdeauna o varianta buna. Am platit mai putin, pentru servicii bune. In plus te distrezi mai mult, dar te si ajuti. Doar aglomeratia de la baie este o problema, daca toate sunt bloggerite. Daca ati vazut snapchatul meu de la NY stiti despre ce vorbesc.

10. Incerc sa imi stabilesc de acasa sedintele foto sau sa calatoresc cu un fotograf. Eu am avantajul ca iubitul meu, Rares este fotograf si atunci cand ne permitem sa calatorim impreuna imbinam utilul cu placutul. Inainte mergeam cu Iuliana la unele FW. Insa cand nu mi-am planificat bine cu fotograf la destinatie am ramas cu tinute nepostate sau cu poze nesatisfacatoare. Iar pentru un blogger este foarte important acest aspect.

Acelasi lucru s-a intamplat si cu tinuta din acest post, asa ca am adunat cateva poze din social media, ca sa pot sa ilustrez aceasta invazie de culoare😀

Port costum si incaltari sport Styland si aceasta minunata geanta/carte de la Boite de Merveilles.

More to come. Soon😘
