Fashion blogging and photography workshop | An experience of a lifetime

As I said in the first Skopje Fashion Weekend blog post, I was not only part of the fashion shows as a guest, I was also a part of a Fashion blogging and photography workshop leaded by stylist and fashion editor Rebekah Roy.

I can safely say that this was one of the most awesome (yes, I am totally going to use that word!) experiences ever, and I am so glad that I decided to apply because if I didn't i knew that that would be something I would regret later. So, I went with my gut and my gut couldn't have been any more right haha.
I spent my mornings in Concept 37 in a lovely atmosphere, having a hot beverage (since outside the weather was crappy and rainy) and discussing about different topics on fashion, blogging, photography and the fashion shows with the most amazing group of people.

Rebekah Roy (@Styliststuff) was the most amazing mentor, she was sweet and kind, and made us all feel welcomed since day 1. We learned a lot about blogging and representing ourselves as a brand, because at the end of the day that is what we are. She also said something along the lines of
"You are the first generation of bloggers in Macedonia" and that was an "Aww" moment for me, but it also made a lot of sense.

The group of people that were with me on the workshop are basically the greatest people you will ever meet (yes, this was a Mean girls quote, I just had to..) Everybody was so nice and we all discovered little things about each other daily. Social media is a big part of our lives, so it was fun to see what we use when we are not on Blogger/Wordpress, or Facebook. We laughed together, we complained together and we even ate together haha (I still have dreams about the lovely selection of food they had for us) We were all from different parts of Macedonia, which made things even harder when FWSK ended. It was hard for me, I had become used to this group of people, and I knew that I had to get up every day at 7:30 so that I can make it in time for the workshop.
But everything that is good must come to an end. And as I am writing this lovely memories come to mind and I am glad that I was a part of this experience of a lifetime.
