A Day in the Life of Camille Schmidt

If you’re a fashion blogger, you’ve probably asked yourself how you are going to get more brands to work with you. Then there are bloggers like Camille Schmidt. The blogger behind Dressed and Educated owns and operates her very own PR firm, Camille Schmidt PR and has worked with brands like Joie, Lucy Activewear and BHLDN. 
At 25 years old, she’s already made quite the mark on the fashion and beauty industry and she’s not about to stop. Read on to learn how Camille juggles magazine pitches, helping out teens and everything in between. (Let’s try not to feel like this.)
 
7:30 AM Wake up and check my email in bed.
8:00 AM Client Social Media on Hootsuite. I try to get everything together for the day in terms of social media before I head out for the day.
9:15 AM Trip to The Plant café in Mill Valley for a Pineapple, Blueberry and Kale smoothie.
10 AM Client Meetings, I tend to meet with my clients once a week or every other week. Sometimes this time is spent meeting with potential clients, brand partners, or bloggers. Most of my meetings take place in San Francisco but every other week I head down to Palo Alto to meet with Outrage Fashion.
1pm Email responses, magazine pitching and lunch in the Marina. I like to get a Spicy Tuna salad at Bluebarn while I work on my Macbook.
2pm Kid pickups. So random I know, but I spend every weekday afternoon with a two teenage boys picking them up and taking them to their various afternoon activities. I love babysitting, and it helps me put everything in perspective.
6pm I’m off and I like to head to Pure Barre or the gym to work out.
7pm Dinner with my parents in Sausalito. I still live with my parents, I started my PR company last January at age 24. Now at age 25, my business is established and I’m ready to move out. Hopefully, I’ll be in the Marina by January of 2014.
8pm City blogger and fashion events.
11pm I head home and kick off my shoes and watched some DVR’d episodes of TV. My favorite shows are Scandal, Revenge and Sons of Anarchy.
