A day in the life.....

July 23, 2012   

As you might know, I’ve recently had the chance to get to know the folks at Microsoft.  We thought it would be fun to give you a glimpse of a “typical” day in the life of Viva Fashion.  Since no two days are alike in my life—between styling, doing TV segments, blogging and freelance writing, there’s never a dull moment .  One thing is for sure though; my world would never be the same without technology—I use it to manage my life, stay organized and entertained at home and on the go. So here we go….

6:45am- Alarm goes off on at 6:45 AM. I  hit snooze a couple of times and then I’m finally up. Take a shower and start getting ready for a day of shooting with T.J. Maxx. Grab some breakfast and then I’m out the door.

8:00am- At the salon, getting my hair and make-up done. I still can’t believe I found a salon in Miami that opens so early, but so relieved since I have to be on set at 9:30am.  While I am in the chair, I take a moment to check my phone and get organized for the day.  I pull up my to-do list in OneNote and add a few items.  I keep all of my notes and to-do lists in this app (available with Microsoft Office); it syncs automatically across my phone, PC, and in the cloud, so I have all of my info wherever I go.  Before I know it, my hair and makeup are done and I am on my way!

9:30am-Make it right on time to start filming. Do a quick run through of the store and start picking out some outfits to feature in the shoot.

9:50am- Getting mic’d up by Larry (the crew was so nice!) Off we go for a day of filming.

2pm- Finish taping.

2:45pm- Pick-up a quick bite at Chipotle. Is it bad that I can recite my order by heart?

3:30pm- Arrive home and it’s back to work.  I get on my computer and start checking and responding emails and planning out tomorrow’s blog post. I had the chance to check out the ASUS laptop and the Zenbook is incredibly light and ultra-thin, which is very important for me since I have to do a lot of traveling for work. I also love the sleek design, which makes it equally stylish.

6:30pm- I do a video meeting over Skype with a company on the West Coast. I love how almost ALL my meetings now take place over Skype. It’s Godsend…plus I save on travel costs. 

7:00pm- Finally disconnect (or at least try to).

7:30pm- Hit-up the food trucks with the hubby. Our friend has a food truck called Mangia Mia that has THE best Italian food. I ordered “The Smasher,” which is the most amazing meatball sandwich on Texas Toast --nom nom.

9:00pm- Arrive home and now its time to work off the calories from “The Smasher.”

9:15pm- I never have time to go to the gym, so I recently started using the Zumba Fitness Rush video game for my Xbox 360 with Kinect.  It’s just like getting a workout without ever leaving my house. It’s the best! Plus I really do feel dancing always puts you in a good mood (p.s. the game allows you to track your calories and how much you burn).

10:15pm- Take a shower and then jump on the couch for some TV watching with the hubby.

11:00pm- Off to bed….ready to conquer the next day!
