Friday friday friday

Hey hey hey!
How nice isn’t it that it’s Friday today? So nice.

First week in school done.

I’ve spent the entire day at my internship, today I mostly sent emails to press contacts for the brands that are doing shows at London & New York fashion week in regards of sponsoring their shows with make up and make up artist from a brand the agency represents! Who knew that emailing could take that long? But it was fun, I also did a little #hashtag tracking from an event they hosted during London Fashion Week Men’s.

When I got of work me and Vicki met up at Piccadilly Circus and went for some dinner and drinks and now we just got back to our flat, I’m catching up on Trumps inauguration and Vicki is reading this while I’m writing it. I’m going to do an interview with her when I’m done posting this so stay tuned!

London College of Fashion

Today I started studying at London College of Fashion where I will spend the next year. I’m starting as a Fashion business student and the next semester I’m planning on taking Fashion media and communication.

I moved to London last Saturday and I love it here. I feel so at home and I’ve done that since landing at Luton airport. I moved here and applied to the school through the IBS agency which the other Swedish girls did as well and it’s really fun to have them around. I share a small room with a Swedish girl and we share the entire floor with 9 other super sweet IBS girls. So right now we’re getting to know each other and the rest of the students in our class. This week is orientation week but I can’t wait for our classes to start next week. This semester I’m taking buying & product development, Luxury brand management and Trend forecasting and then we have some mandatory classes such as history and artifact and British cultural studies.
