Roses are red, violets are blue, I just found out that X likes me too. (well, my work much rather ?). So no, this is not about my ex but I can`t tell you who is it about just yet. Cause then I would spoil everything from the first sentence, wouldn`t I? ?
I would just like to tell you a little story. I kind of feel that I am repeating myself, but every single time I sadly reach an awful conclusion, something that feels like a salvation happens right away. Proving me totally wrong once more.
Just a few weeks ago I was watching a major brand Stories on Instagram. They were hosting a blogger trip and it looked like a great deal of fun. So I couldn`t help but check their Stories once in a while. Let me just start by telling you this brand is very acclaimed. Like really huge. So naturally they are only working with top notch bloggers (no, I wasn`t expecting them to invite me, this is not about that ?). But I was watching these bloggers having a lot of fun and I couldn`t help but notice there were some faces over there that didn`t really fit the bill. What do I mean by that? I mean there were some of those pretty girls that got a huge following, but they don`t necessarily got high fashion taste. ? And this brand we are talking about is all about high fashion and great taste.
So I was like: “Here we go, ` the numbers ` strike again.” (I honestly do wonder many times why am I putting that much soul into my work if in the end that`s not the principal. I could just crack eggs on my forehead for example. I`m pretty sure that would bring me a lot of attention. Or start one of these hating/ gossip blogs. Those seem to be doing pretty well.? I`m just kidding, I know very well why am I doing it. I am doing it out of passion.)
What stroked me the most was not the happening itself, but the contrast of the image I had about this brand vs. the reality. Yes, I`ve seen it a million time but I certainly wasn`t expecting it coming from them. So here it was, another disappointment tied to this blogging and fashion industry ready to make me give up on putting effort into it.
But then, just a day later, a mail came. It was Marine, the junior PR of Chanel asking me if I would like to join them in Greece for the launching of their new perfume, Gabrielle. At this point, if I had believe in God, I would have probably raise my sight toward the sky and be like `Thank you God! Thank you for proving me wrong once again`.
But no! I am an atheist and a very skeptical person in general. So naturally the first thing to do was go on LinkedIn and verify to see if Marine was real. And guess what? She is. A little skepticism was still left though: `What If they change their mind? What if it`s just one of those very well thought spam mails?`☺ Now that I got the tickets all my skepticism is gone. But what do I want to say? If you notice my absence on all the social media channels after 13th of July, please announce the authorities. I am just joking, please don`t take that seriously. ?
In the end I just want to say I am so glad there are brands over there that respect themselves enough to choose quality over quantity. Right now I am very excited and flood with so many thoughts. What am I going to wear? Will I have enough time to document the entire trip? I need to rest well before the flight. Why didn`t I start gym in the spring?? This mixture of excitement, anxiety and thoughts is really tiring me up. But after all this is what gives us life, all this amalgam of feelings.
With all that being said I can`t wait to share this experience with you guys. So make sure you check my Instagram Stories. I will also try and record a vlog, but I am not sure how is that going to work out. I am only going to be there for one day and a half so the time frame is pretty tight. Fingers crossed I`ll nail it. ?
