I feel like such a bad blogger for not posting in almost 2 weeks. However in my defense I was very, very busy in Singapore. I barely had the time to eat. I promise I am back though and will be posting regularly again. These are the pictures from a lovely event I was invited to before leaving for Singapore. This was a showroom organized by PRFact and the lovely Mira invited me with some other local bloggers to check out the new collections of brands such as Diesel, Simone Perele, Swarovski, Puma and Navyboot.
Today I want to talk to you about Zalando. Zalando is a online store, available in most european countries, that retails a number of clothing, accessories and footwear brands. You can find any style, colour, pattern, material your heart desires as well as discover new and traditional brands such as mint&berry, Ash and Mango. I find their website very easy to use, personalized and diverse with something for every style and taste.
They have recently created their own collection of ready-to-wear. This collection is very trendy and fun and it consists of a variety of shoes, coats bags, boots, dresses and so on. I am completely in love with this collection and have already ordered my favourite item which you will see soon. I was extremely excited when I found out that I could organize a giveaway for my Swiss readers. You guys have the chance to win a piece from their collection worth up to CHF100.
All you have to do to win is:
-Follow Zalando on Facebook
- Pick your favourite item from the Zalando Collection worth up to 100CHF and leave a comment on this post telling me why you like it
- Leave your email in the comment so I can contact you if you are the lucky winner
I fully admit that I am a horrible blogger for not posting in almost two weeks. The reason for this being my appointment as the President of the Human Rights Commission in the Model United Nations (MUN) Conference in Singapore which will begin on Monday. MUN is a little like a class, the only difference is that you learn about current U.N. issues and think of how to tackle them. There are several MUN conferences worldwide such as the on in Singapore, which is also one of the biggest in Asia, and the biggest one in The Hague which I will also be attending in January. At these conferences you get to meet people from all over the world and work with them on something that is currently happening, something truly relevant today.
MUN is one of my biggest passions as I want to study International Relations in university. This is another reason why I have been so busy; this week I sent my university applications to England and now am waiting for their replies.
I though it would be nice to tell you about what I do outside of the blog, what my academic passions are and my future aspirations. I hope you will forgive me, and if not, a special surprise will be waiting for you on the blog tomorrow and will make up for my horrible blogging.
The reason I am making a separate post for the backstage pictures from the Mode Suisse fashion show, is simply because I want to share the work and dedication that goes into creating a fashion show. The life "behind the scenes" is incredible, people are running, talking, shouting, eating, laughing, and it seems as though the whole world is crammed into the room. There are numerous racks of clothing, various beauty tools, make up products, and of course tons of people. There are make up artists, designers, models, organizers, hairdressers and bloggers. Its amazing how different the refined, smooth and professional the show is compared to the backstage, which is energetic, emotional, almost crazy. The models seemed to be the most calm of the bunch, be it due to experience of attempts to hide stress. In all honesty I love being in the backstage and witnessing the whole process that created the final outcome, it is much more fascinating and intriguing for me. I tried to capture this buzz and life in my shots, I hope you enjoy them!
