The question I get asked a thousand times (OK maybe my dad asks me this every day) is… What did you do today? I'm not saying I hate it, I'm just saying I can't give you a direct and correct answer, coz honestly girls, every day is sooo different in the land of magazines. So instead I'm giving you a run through of what a normal day may look like at GF HQ. (DAD please read this, coz I can't be bothered to give you a run through when I get home.)
I can see you... KK and Lisa checking out the Zara Pitt Street Store display
Today we start early, YEP sometimes we have events before 9am. Lisa and myself meet up to head into the re-opening of the Zara Sydney's Pitt Street Store.
Can I just say it's AMAZING. I fell in love with the new layout instantly and — I did my research — it has more change rooms, ladies, so fingers crossed no more lines. I also found a few pieces that I heart like this matching floral twosie suit, the golden mules and brocade blazer. Killin' it.

After our lovely Zara-filled morning we headed into Polkadot PR to check out the cool new online brand on the scene, Show Po.
Rummaging through all the racks filled with fun clothes (five to be exact, yes I love my job ), we pulled some winners for a few top secret shoots coming up for Girlfriend magazine. I fell in heart deeply for this clear clutch — it had a diamond spider as the clasp!!!

After a morning out of the office I head back indoors and check all my emails. I spend a good part of my day checking emails (see I told you it's not all that glamorous). Sometimes they're about organising shoots, liaising with photographers, hunting down the perfect leather skirt, calling clothes in from fab designers or replying to our lovely readers, YES YOU! I spend a good chunk of my day tweeting you, giving you fashion advice or better yet telling you to come along to our reader girl shoots.
Just typing away at my desk, with my thinking hat on ...
After a good ol' lunch break of salad lets be real HOT CHIPS. I play dress-ups in the fashion cupboard. sometimes I need full silence to style, other times I need my iPod on and it's almost always blaring Kanye West.
Look at me, I'm styling
As 4pm rolls around it's time to meet with boss lady Sarah to chat about ideas for the July issue of GF. The exciting thing is creating ideas in that meeting that come to life in the mag. If you think about it, it's a three month process from first initial idea, to the meeting, to calling in product, to the shoot date, to the day the issue comes out . It's such a cool thing to be a part of!!!
I do a quick once-over on the emails to see if anything drastic has happened like that one time that certain celeb did that one thing with that one other celeb.
So I hope I gave you a brief idea of what I do get up to being the Fashion Editor at the coolest mag on Earth!
P.S. Don’t forget to tweet me, I’m more than happy to help out on any fashion advice you may need @gf_kristyk
