New Year’s Resolutions To Keep In Mind

Although this is a commencement speech, I wanted to take advantage of the fact that tomorrow is New Year’s eve and put this speech on my blog. This year, instead of making empty resolutions such as going more to the gym and losing those 10 extra pounds I decided to make more substantial resolutions, such as the ones in this video. I hope you take something away from this speech, I know its been five years since the first time I heard it yet it still teaches me something new every time.

But trust me on the sunscreen.

Happy New Year.

Fashion Image Consultant

During my summer in Paris I attended Istituto Marangoni, a world renown fashion school. I did a 3 week Fashion Image Consulting course which basically consisted in learning how to  be someone’s personal shopper and also a magazine fashion editor.Our final project was to come up with an editorial for a fictitious fashion magazine. We had to create a theme, choose a model and shop for the clothes and props we would utilize for the photo shoot. My theme was 1950’s Jet Setter.

Here are some instagram pics of my final project.

And here are the final, edited versions of the pictures.

What I’ve Been Doing While You Were Sleeping

My followers keep asking me why my blogging has been so sporadic for the past 3 months or so. The reason behind my inconsistency is because I was traveling for the most part of the summer. Those of you who keep a close eye on my blog saw my “snapshots of London” post, which is one of the many cities I visited throughout the summer. I also visited Paris, where I stayed for a good amount of time since I was doing a Fashion Image Consulting course. I roamed around Istanbul, the south-east of Turkey, Istanbul again, Cannes, Nice, Juan Les Pins and finished off once again in Paris.

However that wasn’t quite the end of it. My summer concluded with me landing a job in New York Fashion Week, working for The Daily Front Row which is Fashion Week’s official publication.

During my job there I got the opportunity to attend Fashion Shows, work for their social media outlets and attend their booth at Fashion’s Night Out. However the coolest part of my job is that I got to HOST the Daily Style Sessions at the Empire Hotel’s rooftop bar. Here are a few snapshots of my glory days this past NYFW.

New York vs. Paris

Anyone and everyone who knows me knows that New York City is the love of my life. However I have always had an affair with Paris. In this little video you can see an animated comparison between my love and my lover. Who knows, maybe you too will fall in love with the bright lights of these big cities.
