10 realities of being a fashion blogger (explained in gifs)



IRL it's not all glamorous soirees and no VPL Instagram shots. IRL it's really A LOT of deleted VPL Instagram shots, considerable amounts of time spent at the laptop with a furrowed forehead (WTF IS THE HTML code for this?!) and being freezing bloody cold trying to shoot a new #ootd whilst studiously ignoring all the weird looks you're getting…





#1 The frustration that comes with darker nights/mornings…
If you're a part-time blogger (like me) who works full time, then you'll know of the ever closing window that is natural light when it comes to shooting flatlays and #ootds in the autumn/winter….#bloggerproblems 



#2 How most of your selfies really come out…
Hmmmm not the best angle. 





#3 The pure hideousness that is the 'no storage left' message when you're trying to take that final photo (or ANY photo) with your iPhone. And, then the pure IRONY when you try to take an image of said iPhone message and suddenly your iPhone will accept 150 images of the same thing and the message doesn't flash up?! I. Just. Can't. 



#4 The pressure…
No ones tells you about the pressure. The deadlines to meet, the 'what if it's not good enough' thoughts…





#5 When your Instagram follower count goes down by 12. 
Why? Why? What was it?! Why did you leave? Was it the post of the banana?




#6 The never-ending requirement of upping your tech game
Something that you have to get on board with and learn. Often comes with a large helping of frustration, expletives and laptop-throwing…




#7 The constant odd looks/eye roll from strangers when you're trying to shoot an #ootd out in the street…

"WHAT?! WHAT IS IT? THIS IS CHANEL-INSPIRED COAT - why would you NOT WANT TO TAKE a picture of IT!!?'





#8 The FEAR: an empty inbox.





#9 You'll often be caught photographing odd things. For instance, a very intriguing piece of textured wallpaper on a salad-bar wall. Be okay with it. It will looks AWESOME with your Insta-feed theme. 






#10 The FURY: when you compose a brilliant ensemble in your head, put it on, and then realise it's raining and you can't shoot it.
