A day in the life of a Fashion Blogger Collaboration – Slovakian Edition


Hey. Let’s take a look at how does one day in a fashion blogger looks like. In regards to my previous article titled Fashion Sucks where I shared a complicated topic of fashion blogger let me explore the issue further.

There is endless meaning behind the term. Endless possibilities that even thought might not support your image of fashion blogger it simply can’t deny it either.

Being fashion blogger for me means you have this one interest and you’re dedicated to it on different levels. One day all you can think about is the next outfit you’re going to compose. The next one you don’t give a tiniest crap about what you’re wearing or about what anyone is wearing. The other day you’re mad about fast fashion industry creating devastating effect on environment and the next one you’re neck-deep in discounted clothes.

Being a fashion blogger for me means being on a rollercoaster that leads to true content. No matter what the most important feature for me is feeling good in whatever I’m wearing. One day I feel right in simple jeans and shirt and the other I thrive for people turning heads over my outfit.

Finding a middle zone to describe just one day in a life of a fashion blogger turns out to be harder than I imagined it would be. It’s like I’m split.  There is a version of me that has this incredible ideas in her head that could fill out fashion week. There is a version of me feeling guilty for her materialistic consumptions site and there is me begging me to just chill.

Here is how my usual fashion blogger day looks like:

I wake up early for work. It takes me around one hour to complete my morning routine that considers of thorough cleanup of my face, putting my make up on, having breakfast, regular blog updates and email check and what I’m focusing on in this article – choosing my outfit for the day. If you’re expecting some deeper decision-making I’m gonna disappoint you. I’m literally going by “it’s on the top and it’s the first thing that caught my attention”. How sad.  The reason why I never bothered to focus on my morning clothing routine is because I know than in 15 minutes I’ll be changing again. I still want to look nice for that 15 minutes but more importantly I want to be comfortable for those 15 minutes when I’m traveling to work.

I work as a pharmacist assistant in Pragues pharmacy. First thing I do when I come to work is I change to my work clothes which considers of white pants, white shirt, white socks and white shoes. How creative. I spend eight hours a day in white. I bet that’s not how you imagined a fashion blogger would look like. BUT.

Everyday I have my own fashion show as I get to watch thousands of patients walk in my pharmacy and I get to silently judge their outfits as much as I please. It helps me grow a perspective. Prague’s ladies wears a lot of crazy outfits. I’m enjoying the varieties of styles everyday even thought I’m not precipitating myself. Tha’t the fashion blogger I am during my work hours.

The other part of my day is dedicated to my secret fashion life much more. After work is my website work time that goes on till the morning.

On my ride home I’m already checking for news. Instagram is my ultimate source. Having my favourite brands, bloggers and vloggers, fashion icons in one place makes my research much easier. Fashion bloggers this days are gifted with updates from literally everyone. You know what’s going on right away and that’s both blessing and course of this age. You either catch on new trend right away or 3 day passes and you’re out and you hope to catch the next one that’s coming in like few minutes. So you got to pick your battles. You simply can’t catch them all.

So I check out what’s up. What my favourite brands are up to and I’m already brainstorming how to present my research forward with my touch. The minute I get home I’m switching to blogger mode. I have a short time to make a dinner and change to sweatpants. You have to love my outfits.

I’m researching, creating outfits, editing photographs from my good fashion days, checking for best deals, communicating with partnered websites and most importantly writing it all down. That part of my days gives me true satisfaction and pride in calling myself a fashion blogger. The results of my daily fashion brainstorm are up on my website. 

Everyone’s definition of fashion blogger is different just as the days in fashion bloggers lives are. This is a collaboration of two fashion bloggers from other sites of the world. We hope you enjoyed them both.

Sitting down with blogger royalty www.renegade7x.com

Hey Lovers,

Today I have something to share that has been in the works for a while now!

Drum roll please….

For those of you that don’t belong to her over 10,000 strong subscribers’ viewership on WordPress alone, Natalia is the writer behind http://renegade7x.com/

If you love fashion, travel, uncut realness and some pretty awesome reviews…. well Nat is the girl for you.

I have had the pleasure of creating some exciting content with this writing inspiration myself!

 I have spent the last few weeks speaking with this blogging Queen and asked if  I could interview her.

Nat has been kind enough to sit down and share her knowledge, thoughts and give us bloggers just a little sneak peek behind the curtain of renegade7x.com.

As many of you know, along with my fashion, travel and advice posts I love to write blogging tips. Having the opportunity to gain some insight from a well-established blogger and writer has been something I’m very grateful for.

Beginning on Tumblr over six years ago, Nat transferred to wordpress.com.  Humble with her success, Nat lives in one of the World’s fashion capitals Prague! I first came across Nat when I saw her post “2019 is the worst and it’s been just 12 days!” From there I was hooked, I have been eagerly awaiting each and every post since! I’m sure you’ll find so too!

 Her realness, relatability and writing skills were and continue to be just so enticing. Nat is a writer few can compare to, she writes from the heart and is so engaging you can feel like she is talking directly to you over a coffee.

It’s funny to me that many bloggers are writers that engross you more than a book ever can. (Plus the bonus of getting to talk to them directly couldn’t be cooler.)

Bloggers helping and sharing with other bloggers is something that is incredibly special. This forum allows us to connect with other likeminded people. One thing that took me by surprise, is that so many of Nat’s responses were the same as my own. So, from one Australian blogger and one Slovakian blogger we thank you for being a part of our community. Please feel free to share your own responses below, we’d love to hear from you!

Here is our interview below:

1 – what’s something people don’t know about you?

When I was 2 years old me and my parents and grandma moved to New Jersey from Slovakia. My first english words were “grandma where’s my puppy?

2- How long have you been blogging?

I started in May 2013 out of pure boredom and curiosity. I created my tumblr blog and started exploring the blogger world. My blogs main topic changed so much over the years just as my interests changed. I created my WordPress blog to share more articulated articles about my life in 2018 – so really I’m still a blogger newbie.

3- When did and what made you gain a blog following?

I believe my tumblr blog got the biggest boost because of youtubers Dan and Phil (or Danisnotonfire and AmazingPhil back then) I shared small comments, edited some pictures and people from youtube fandom seemed to enjoy my stuff and I gained thousands of followers seemingly overnight.

About my renegade7x website I believe it was just few months after I started blogging on WordPress. I kept it real. I wrote stuff that was hard to type and the response I got was heartwarming. I wrote about my depression, anxiety, self harm, psychiatric sessions and I kept it as rough as reality was. So many people could relate but couldn’t voice it like I did and that’s what brought attention to my writing.

4- what’s your go to fashion piece in your wardrobe?

I have this one black and white knitted cardigan that I had for ages and it’s so stretched now but I just can’t let it go as it looks great with everything I own.

5- who’s your fashion icon?

Rihanna. She’s truly a fashion icon because of how she wears herself. People joke around that and item of clothing is ugly until Rihanna decides it’s not – and that’s just so true. She could put whatever on and still look fabulous because of her admirable level of confidence I aspire to have one day.

6- what’s one word to describe you?

Blessed

7- what actress would play you in a movie?

I don’t want to sound too cocky but I’m gonna go with my celebrity crush Lily James. Love the shape of her.

8- where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I’m in my New Yorks apartment with this beautiful view over the city. I’m wearing silk pajamas and drinking coffee. My laptop is opened and my succesful website is on as I’m finishing my lattes article. I just published my book alongside with my new fashion line.Life is great. Everything I do now is in order to get that coffee in 10 years.

9- where do you want to travel next?

Switzerland. I have this scratch off map of the world and I have Europe pretty much traveled but I’m missing

Switzerland. Hope to fix that this year.

10- what’s your favourite blog topic?

It’s so natural for me to write reviews. It’s relaxing. But I find it more challenging to write something personal, some reflection. I love that feeling when I get new idea and I just have to pour it all down in one sitting and I get to publish it right away for world to see.

11- top tip to new bloggers?

Don’t focus on the numbers. I know it’s exciting to see your audience grow but don’t let it discourage you if the results are not according to your expectations. Take your time and focus on the content instead. Enjoy every struggling minute of writing

I hope you enjoyed today’s post as much as we loved creating it!

Special thank you to Nat for all her time and inspiration.

All my love,

Aesthetically Basic – A millennial’s guide to life
