One Day. A day in the life

I've had a few of you lovely readers email me lately asking all sorts of questions. It's so great to see that you're interested and involved in my blog and my life so I thought I'd share another personal little snippet with you; a day in the life of me. I thought this would be a great way for you to get to know me better and also I figure it will make a great thing for me to look back on in a few years to see how my life has changed. So here goes...

7am - time to wake up, I usually check my emails and social media and attend to any blog comments from overnight before rolling out of bed. I have about an hour to get ready each morning [I usually spend a good 10 minutes of that time staring mindlessly into my wardrobe trying to decide what to wear] before it's time to head off to work.

8.30am - I'm at my desk checking emails and planning the day ahead. I do a range of things in my position; on any given day I can be coordinating photoshoots, organising talent (models, makeup, photography), preparing reports, writing web content and brainstorming PR strategies.

1pm - time to grab lunch, if I'm lucky I'll take an hour and whip down to Burleigh Hill where I can enjoy my sandwich while basking in the sun and watching the surfers cruise by.

5pm - I'm finishing up at work for the day. I try to get out and exercise at least 3 evenings a week, whether it's going for a run, a swim, a game of tennis, yoga or pilates.

8pm - if I don't have an event on or a catch-up with friends, you'll find me in the kitchen whipping up dinner, I love trying new recipes and sharing them with you [weekend baking is my guilty pleasure].


9pm - I'm on my computer writing blog posts, researching or online shopping, after all I am a fashion marketer by day, blogger by night; there's no rest for the wicked.

11pm - if I'm not too tired I love to squeeze in an episode of my favourite show before bed (at the moment I'm watching revenge, made in chelsea and the carrie diaries) then I'll read for a while before it's time to get my beauty sleep.

What's a day in your life like?
