A day in the life of a fashion blogger (caribbean edition)

9AM : Attempt to wake up (in a very attractive bed).

9.45AM : Instagram picture of morning tea (obviously the table mat and cup have to match, honestly, what are you? an amateur?)

10:30AM : Look ridiculously grumpy taking morning outfit photos (The caffeine from your tea obviously hasn't quite hit home yet).

12PM : Take picture of your aesthetically pleasing lunch (you better instagram it too, otherwise people may start sporadically dying because they don't know what you ate for lunch)

12.45PM : What you actually look like behind the camera in any normal circumstance (including all family photos).
2:30PM : Go to your pool to sunbathe...a tan looks fabulous with maroon (color of the season, duh). Don't swim because you're blonde, and chlorine turns your hair neon green (green does not go with maroon).

4:30PM : Blog, reply to emails, tweet that you're listening to [insert indie musician here] when really you're singing along to Taylor Swift at full volume.

6.30PM : Seduce your obnoxiously heavy camera with your best 'come to bed' eyes during an evening outfit photo shoot.

9PM : Cry yourself to sleep because your forgot to Instagram your dinner.

And repeat.
This is just incase any of you were wondering what it's like to be a fashion blogger, well, now you know.

  68. I like your ironical tone concerning the instagram obsession that has hit the blogosphere. documenting every single moment and putting it up there for "the world" to see really is overkill.
