Here i’m flirting with you a bit, of course. But I promise it’s gonna be interesting. Especially if you are interested in interior design.
My name is Sasha Sanochki, and it’s difficult to say what my profession is… I invented it myself and it doesn’t have a name so far. Something close to marketing in the sphere of luxury interior, fashion, expensive products.
Besides, I’m an author of quite a popular blog – every day it is read by some thousand of people.
And I’m a mother.
Here’s one of my December working days. Exclusive a bit, luxurious… Highly recommended!
I wake up.
Almost every day I wake up at this time to do something before my main work – for the blog or some side project.
I cannot wake up without coffee. Here’s my unusual way to make a cup of coffee. Why do I need a cooler at home? Sometimes my daughter aged 6 stays at home alone and when she’s ill she needs warm water or warm drinks without chlorine. So the cooler and the crockpot are our true friends!
Laptop, coffee, chocolate. Working day starts.
I am invited to a casting. One of the youth TV channels decided to make a programme about fashion, style and clothes, for those who are aged 14-20. They guess I may be an anchorwoman. I agree – it’s interesting.
Sorry, all important details are hidden.
Back to work
My blog is about creative needlework and now it is holding a contest of ideas of clothes and interior transformations. So daily I receive these many mails from my readers with their ideas. I try to publish them all.
When no contests are held, I look for interesting materials for my blog.
I am a fan of needlework, I like clothes and interior items transformations, so I want to make it more popular in Russia. Here, in Russia, people believe that transformation is a trash, but I choose very stylish and useful ideas for the youth. Almost all readers of my blog are not older than 25 and they love fashion.
Good idea is found, a post must be written.
This post is over, the next is to be written. Each weekday I publish 5-20 ideas. Today I finish at 6.50 am.
Checking statistics, for this month I’ve got some more thousand of readers. Nice.
Time to wake the girls up.
The cat wants its breakfast.
Coco should be fed too. Now I have to wake up my daughter.
Fast by bright makeup today
Why is she drawing now? We gonna be late!
Stylish accessories and a cocktail dress for 7am on a weekday? Yes!
Now she’s at the laptop! I am getting angry!
Do I look Ok?
Finally she is ready, leaving for the kindergarten.
Surprise for moms there. I kiss gratefully my baby and leave.
Lyalya, my daughter, is a little sportsman with serios trainings (synchronized swimming) three times a week, and usually she stays at father’s for a night. It’s more convenient. Today it’s even more opportunely. I won’t be home sooner than 1am.
My office is in a mess!
Loading the car
By going by metro myself.
Passing the guard station under the church.
My destination. Today they are holding an interesting exhibition of interior design devoted to Christmas table decor. At night they will take VIP guests.
At the entry
We are unloading our “cargo”. But I have to go back to my office, one guy should take his order and I want to discuss cooperation with him.
Back at the office
Peter Listerman – our guest. He’s very popular in Moscow. He says he is ready for cooperation and right here we realize one of his creative ideas making a funny scandalous video on a cam.
Back to the exhibition
A have a couple of spare hours, dinner and a book are my choice.
Decors from the most demanded Moscow designers.
Persian silk carpets. They are so beautiful! How hard it must be to make them! Looking at them you understand that they are really worth the sums they are asked for.
This blue carpet was made by one master for three years, its thickness is some mm.
Pomegranates are not real, just for a decor.
The deer and the table are covered with naturalistic “ice” and icicles made of acrylic glue.
The next hall
The table is called “an ideal offer”.
This table was cut out of a huge ice piece in the shape of a water dragon – the symbol of the next year. The guarantee was 8 hours for it. But it melted for 6. However it was a hit!
Table of an alchemist
Did you notice that there are many antique fireplaces, chandeliers, pictures? Everything is for sale. One legend says that one purchased chandelier has been remaining in the gallery for a really long time – no carrier or insurance company take responsibility to transport it.
“Be afraid of excessiveness, it swallows the essence”
The Xmas tree is from sweets and chocolate
Tablecloth with ribbons
Photos won’t convey the beauty
Wedding table with a pre-revolutionary history.
And this is what I don’t like – how one may sit at such a table? All this taxidermy… though the decor is nice.
This tabel is called “beakfast for an opera singer”. Can’t name brands, sorry.
Natalya Pereverzeva – just chosen to be “the Beauty of Russia”, and having the title “Miss Moscow”. She is going to represent our brand in Russia. For a couple of hours we are discucssing details with her.
We’ll help her, and she will help us.
Soon after the video we made together Natalya went to Germany for 2 weeks.
I won’t show you super VIP persons, it’s not necessary, I suppose.
The next some hours we didn’t have time to recover our breath. Many many designers wanted to know about our brands.
This handmade cashmere slipper costs 400 dollars!
Finally it turned out that soon the metro would be closed and we hurried to leave. We were so tired that we took the wrong direction in the subway!
I came home at 1 am. Then shower. 15 minutes were spent to finish Lyalya’s dress for a morning performance in the kindergarten.
About 2 am and i’m hardly awake…
A bit sad photo. I am thinking that December is leaving so fast and I probably will meet New Year alone. In spring I broke up with someone who didn’t see personalities in me and my daughter but took us as a temporary springboard. It was hard to realize and very painful. Breaking those relations I cut the cords that bound and it took long to recover.
Almost a year has gone but I’m still alone. Yes, I concentrate on my career, my kid, but i’m ready for something new, mutual care and hugs while sleeping. But the rhythm of my life doesn’t let me start something new. If not exhibitions, then – trainings and seminars, pr-projects…
Recently i’ve read that no normal girls remained. Many of them drink, smoke, party in clubs or watch movies all days long. I believe there are many of us! Look for us in some other places.
It’s time to say goodbye, tomorrow my alarm clock will wake me up at 5.05 and everything will start from the beginning again.
What are you waiting for? Make photos of your day and send them in! Create your sample day here!
