Fashion Week Stress

  • Pin it

Last minute fittings! Last second arrangements! Major shows, major pressure! Haute designers, haute stress. Is there a secret class of stress management, some secret Harry Potter magic potion they all drink to make it zen? Designers at work equals stress.

Special round of applause for Jeremy Laing and his special off-focus secret: ironing! We were living near an ocean of calm, all along! Now I’m looking forward to tomorrow morning’s laundry time! ahem relaxing time! Who needs to go to the gym with all that ironing right around the corner? What do you do to relax?

One of the things I do to relax is visit this blog :) and now I’m gonna watch that video…….aww, I love Hilary Alexander.
Further rock n’ roll, volume loud as possible and dancing on it? Lovely relaxation for me when I’m highly stressed, works every time….:D

I remember when I was in the business,
Before the any show I slept enough and ate light like vegetables and fruit, nothing that will stay long in my stomach,
if I had time I went to swim in the mornings before go to work,
and after all the fittings,and reheasals, I went out far of everyone, I breathe and I ate dark chocolate and the show could start, since forever (because of my granmother)I drink gingertea in the mornings, that helps also to start the day with no stress!!

And now I still swim (whenI have time) to relax my self and need chocolate when I’m understress, I take some minutes to get a look whats going on in fashion, I make the dinner and I take a shower ,I sew some thing or stay with my love and go to sleep (minimum 8h).

ouyy, why am I telling you or this!!

Ah, I love dark chocolate too. It’s the best and does indeed do wonders for stress and it’s good for your hair did you know that?

Why you tell this? It’s interesting and nice to learn who you are.:)

I so love it when you do share things from your everyday life! It’s wonderful! To connect like that, through internet, even if we’re miles away! Why you’re telling us all that? Because we care? we do, look, Adriana said it too! :*

Adriana, first of all thank you for your sweet words, as always :*

Music, music, yes! Music! such a wonderful way to take the stress away! Dance, dance every thought away! That’s what I do too when I’m not running for the Mum’s Olympics! Or watch a good film or TV show with my husband! We love to discuss that movie, every scene, every bit of suspicion, anything! We’re sofa screenplayers, directors and actors! it’s fun, we try to understand and guess where will the plot take us next ;)

Oh, and icecream? that’s better than dark chocolate for me!
And, if we can, going out just me and my husband? Instantly props us to our early 20s! It’s magic!
