New York Fashion Week is always a lot of fun (and work) and this year I enjoyed a special treat of being backstage (and in the photographer’s pit!!) for the Georgine SS17 collection.

Ahh summer. I’m a girl who squeezes every drop of fun out of the summer months and no amount of early back-to-school/back-to-work hoopla can make me accept that summer is over. Not until late September when autumn officially begins. So naturally, I was very pleased to receive the August Glossybox which is chock full of sun-kissed goodies that are perfect for those final glorious days at the beach. Let’s see what’s inside!
