I promised myself I would write more, so here I am, writing.
So… before the photo diary… I wanted to get this all down while the excitement and awe is still fresh!
It all started with a beautifully designed invite from Cherry (hope you don’t mind me sharing, it’s too pretty not to!)
I’d like to hope that the public sees us as more than just girls who like to dress up, take seflies and pretty photos and probably spend too much time trawling through social media. I’m a skeptic and a cynic, believe me, I understand. But before you guys cringe and shudder, I can honestly say that this experience was both a privilege and an inspiration.
It’s incredible what can be achieved when like-minded people come together. It seemed like something that only existed on famous Youtubers’ channels from the US or on FashionBloggersTV.
Thanks to Charmaine and Cherry’s (the Collective Curators) incredible efforts to host a seriously legit event, we were all able to take “OOTDs” shamelessly(?) at the Stables of Como..for..would you believe it.. a full hour and a half. While I’m quite an introverted person, it certainly doesn’t take one to notice the rest of the public face-palming at our shenanigans – a group of 20 girls hovering over tables in order to get that perfect Instagram photo. It was definitely nothing short of amusing.
The venue (easy to get to and plenty of parking, perfect spot to take photos), goodies/care packages and name tags were not the only things impressive about the event that the girls went lengths to organise. What was also impressive was the fact that everyone turned up, and no psychotic pedo fell into the mix. I’m joking. It’s just that the world doesn’t really have a great track record with meeting people from the online world. So for that I give credit to the girls for having good sense.
What I loved the most about this was that ultimately, everyone I met was the relatable average joe (I mean this in the best possible way!); just normal people doing what they love, and supporting others with the same passion and hobby.
I swear I had a lot more to say before writing this post…so I’ll leave it for Part 2. I’ll include a few photos from today that I took with my iPhone (regrettably, I did not bring my dslr/vlogging camera with me today…damn I always ceebs at the last minute then regret it later on). Hopefully I can steal some photos from the others and share them with you all!
