About a month ago I was offered the possibility to contribute to the Living List, an online project organised by Beagle Street. The project consisted in rounding up a series of experts from different backgrounds to submit a list of things that you must do before you die within their area of expertise. Looking at the authors already contributing (Lil Bub the cat did her own list!) and having seen that funny “gremlin in the bathtub” ad on TV, I snapped up the opportunity to tell the world what 10 things every “fashionista” should do before they die!
I also associated with the idea behind the campaign: it’s good to encourage people to live life through their greatest passion. There is no doubt that fashion has really shaped my life in the best possible way. Whatever your passion may be it will always be one of the reasons why you get out of bed every day and it is that one thing that you will always have with you no matter what happens, till the day you die. That’s why it’s something that I love sharing with you everyday here on my blog, it really inspires me and keeps me going.
You can take a look at my list here. Some of my “musts” are experiences I have already lived, for example visiting Paris and Florence (Italy is incredible for fashion, the amount of good looking and well-dressed people will just stun you) or taking part in a photo shoot (see my shoot for ASOS here) and meeting the iconic designer, Giuseppe Zanotti. Others however are still on my to do list and I hope I will have a chance to tick them off pretty soon. For example I would love to fly to New York and Los Angeles, that would be a pretty amazing trip, maybe topped with the chance to see the Oscar’s red carpet in Hollywood… I wish!
Finally I wanted to tell you that you can enter a fun competition on the site. Fun because you get to choose the prize and because you have to motivate your choice with a reason why you should win and upload a related picture. The prize can cost up to £1500 but that is definitely enough to put your hands on a couple of new pairs of Louboutins, a new Balenciaga or a Chanel bag! Definitely have fun taking a look through my list and at the other ones on the site and remember to always live according to your passion! I hope this can be of some inspiration to you, I always try to enjoy and love everything I do.
