Number of Groundhog Day-esque deadlines for ELLE.com trend posts: EIGHT. I gave myself the most stressful assignment of coming up with beauty trends from JUST each day, never overlapping.
Number of $15+ cab rides all the way up to Lincoln Center (AKA Siberia) and back: 10
Number of actual runway shows attended: 1, Betsey Johnson, whose cartwheel reaffirmed why I heart FW.
Number of songs Shazaam’d during Betsey Johnson: 5. Fashion shows routinely boast the best mu.
Number of NYFW manicures: 1 using Lancome‘s new Vernis in Love at their event at the Solange Azagury-Partridge
Number of backstage shows covered: Just 7 this season–I found Instagram and Twitpic were far more useful for my trend pieces than hauling myself to and from the tents. THRILLS for social media!
Number of meals eaten while I’m walking to events/meetings/shows: Upwards of 10
Number of street style videos created: 1, for realbeauty.com! Stay tuned.
Number of Aquafinas consumed in the tents: Millions
Number of days heels were worn: Seven, thanks to my ankle booties from Aldo, which boast a walkable low heel.
Number of times I played Madonna’s “Vogue” upon entering backstage to psych me up: At least 7, for each time I went behind the beauty scenes. Some things never change.
Number of hours I spent solo recouping/feeling jetlagged last night after filing my final trend post: 18
All in all? A fabulous time.
