Staycation: QT Canberra

Fashfest is over for another year, and while I had a blast covering the event for my Blog and I’m already looking forward to and planning for Fashfest 2016; what most people don’t realise about an event like this is that it is hard work. As a Blogger attending a fashion show you’re expected (and rightfully so) to cover the event in sufficient detail, which means being present pre-show for traditional Media coverage, engaging with the collections shown while simultaneously capturing them on camera, battling all the other Bloggers for best picture, best post, best outfit; and of course to actually write, edit and post Blog posts, instagram pictures, and anything else you might feature.

Don’t get me wrong, I love every minute of this, but this doesn’t change the fact that it is hard work.

As such, it was a delight to be treated to a night of accommodation at QT Canberra for the final night of Fashfest 2015, meaning that I could turn the last 24 hours of Fashfest into a staycation while I devoted my time to covering the event.
