I started my fashion career as a model and even I loved fashion world a lot, modelling just wasn’t for me. So I slowly moved from a catwalk to blogging. I couldn’t be happier what I do now.
What does your daily blogging routine look like?
I wake up at 6.30-7am and spend time with my baby. Around 11am he goes for a nap and then my work starts. I make myself a cup of coffee and start to reply emails, do flatlay shots for Instagram and any work I have to do that day. The rest of the day is again with my baby, I try to reply some emails in between playing with him. After 7pm I put my baby to bed and my work begins again. I edit pictures, write articles and plan my next day tasks. This is how busy mum’s and blogger’s life looks.
