It's been almost a year since I wrote all about the splendid experience of working with Eastpak for their 'Pack Your Bag And Carry On' campaign. It was a total blast, the crew and fellow blogger models had me in awe (I mean, what's better than talking Brandy and the benefits of tea with the #flawless Jean-Paul Paula over Italian food). So today, I couldn't be more stoked to present the results of this collaboration.
Five years ago I published that very first blog post, a time when Gossip Girl ruled my world and university life had just started unfolding. The ride so far has been wild: I've met the most stellar people (from genuinely lovely fashion writers and pr's to designers I look up to so much), had a national radio gig, walked wide-eyed through fashion weeks and industry events, wrote for freaking Opening Ceremony and landed an epic internship + dream job with KNOTORYUS. It's too much to sum up, really. And now I'm in an international campaign. I get overwhelmed by the future a lot, but I can only look back at the past with gratitude and pride. So thank you for being there with me all this time. Now go subtweet some shade about my hairy stick legs before I start ugly crying.
