16 Things Every Fashion Blogger Understands



Bloggers know that blogging is basically a lifestyle and I thought it would be fun to justify that with a round-up of the wacky (and worthwhile!) things we constantly do. 

1. Seeing an aesthetically pleasing wall and zipping across the street to use it as a photo backdrop.

2. Looking for restaurants with the most appealing setups and trendy foods (clearly just like trendy fashion, trendy food is a thing too).

3. Always seeking flawless lighting in random places.

4. Marble everything. Like are you even a blogger if you don't have a fond addiction with marble designs?

5. When your camera dies or memory card is full mid-shoot and you probably want to cry, but you remember your makeup is too good for that...alright that was a little too dramatic.

6. Elaborating on the last point brings me to the dilemma of constantly getting full storage alerts on your iPhone because you took a couple hundred pictures that day. Delete, delete, delete.

7. While we are on the topic of phones, you know when you've only been out for three hours and you already have a 20% battery because you've been uploading, responding, snapping, and everything else in between?

8. Replying to business emails and beginning posts even when you aren't supposed to be working just because you are trying to get a jump start for the next day.

9. Having friends all around the world who you are close with through the blogosphere, but have never met in real life.

10. Knowing about every single thing going on in the fashion industry like your first name is Vogue.

11. Being 100% shameless about taking pictures in some of the weirdest and wildest places. 

12. Trying to capture a walking shot across the street that looks natural right as the traffic light is about turn red. The things we do for that one shot. 

13. Knowing the struggle of trying to teach someone else to take pictures of you when your photographer isn't around.

14. Stalking and gawking over your favorite bloggers with no shame for hours wondering how they seem so blogger.

15. Even with having help, you still know how to handle everything from PR, to content development, and scheduling on your own..#GirlBoss

16. The challenge of perfect flatlays. Should I dare say more?
