Day In The Life
As pretty as Instagram makes things seem, not all day-to-day experiences of an influencer are glamorous.
Often times, we have 12-hour days packed with meetings, tastings, showroom visits, and events; save for the logistical side of things via emails and meeting deadlines. We're on-the-go all the damn time. Sometimes all we see is just BTS of photoshoots but don't see the process of pulling clothes, props, location scouting, hair and make-up, down to post-production.
Some days we have no breaks or time to go home and often have to sport a day-to-night lewk; crossing fingers some setting spray keeps the face from fading too.
It takes a lot to make our social presence look as effortless as it does. Without the grit, there wouldn't be any glamour.
As time goes on, you start to figure out ways to cut corners to make these bustling schedules bustle a little less. My favorite secret? Kenneth Cole's new TechniCole line, which are basically heels that feel like sneakers. I never have to keep an extra pair of flats/sneakers in my trunk or worry about outfit changes. It's an all-in-one typa shoe and I never have to sacrifice style for comfort when trekking around town.
I love The Riley, which is lined with soft leather to cradle your foot in all the right places. Plus it has memory foam pods that cushion key pressure points in your foot. I'm super conscious of what I do to my body for the long run, whether it's with the food I eat or wearing SPF, so wearing proper shoes is a must if I want to avoid back problems later on.
All in all, the influencer life is not an easy one at best and as much as I've convinced you otherwise, I hope I've convinced you of these shoes instead.
