Advertorial in Collaboration with H&MFrom left to right: A Constellation Journal, Street Style Teller, A Fashion Nerd, and Stuff She Likes
On Monday, four of our five insanely talented finalists gathered at H&M’s Showroom in Manhattan for their mentorship session with Leandra Medine. And as each girl arrived — bright-eyed, beaming, and chic as ever — we couldn’t help but smile.
We already knew we had a distinguished group, but as the jam-packed day rocketed by, we got a truly privileged glimpse at just how hard-working, dedicated, and kind these girls are. And while our fifth finalist, Survivor on Stilettos, had travel troubles and was sadly unable to attend the session, she didn’t give up, and made it to New York anyway! She even spent some quality one-on-one time with the Bloglovin’ team and snapped a few pics with us. Talk about dedication.
Leandra’s advice balanced brilliance and humility with straight-up hilarity (you know, that signature Man Repeller finesse). The finalists were fearless when it came to asking those tough, vulnerable questions they’ve been dying to have answered.
Between takes and countless photo opportunities, the finalists perused the showroom choosing their H&M Fall Studio selects (which they will debut at the Bloglovin’ Awards this September, but we can’t show you just yet!).
We're eager to share every last tidbit of the mentorship day with you. In the meantime, take a peek below for some behind-the-scenes goodness.
One more thing: don’t forget to vote for your favorite finalist! The polls open in August, so stay tuned.
