ViewBug Award “Staff Favourite”!

Hello to everyone!! I hope you have doing great! I have recently got back from my latest experience abroad with the modelling agency! We went to Italy and had loads of photoshoots and some great opportunities which I will talk about in other posts, so keep an eye out!

This post is about my very first award I got on ViewBug! For those who don’t know what it is, ViewBug is one of the biggest sites were photography has importance and exposure! It’s filled with great contests and chances to get exposure, I have taken chances in a lot of contests, I managed to make it to the Top 20 in some contests and recently also in the Top 10!

The award I got is one of the huge awards on the site and I still can’t believe I managed to achieve it! I got an email saying I had received the “Staff Favourite Award” the night before heading to Italy (Ps. I couldn’t sleep much because of it haha 😅)

As the morning after arrived, I checked my notifications and found over 80 peer on awards on the photo! Until now it got over than 200 peer awards which for me it’s huge! Enough talking here is the photo! 

The photo was taken in Belgium and credits for the photo goes to one of our great directors Patrick Spiteri of Nellas Fotography Malta

In this photo I am wearing a grey t-shirt from Asos, my Colton James Watch, brown wool trousers and checked blazer by Gagliardi!

Men’s Luxurious Wallet!

Hey guys! Hope you’re all doing great, it’s already mid-week and I’m back here with another post! A couple of months ago I received a gift and I decided to go and shoot some photos and write a blog post unfortunately I got really busy but here it is!

The name of the shop is “The Mens Wallet Shop“, you can find a couple of bracelets but it focuses mainly on wallets and they also got some cool minimal card only holders! I was gifted one of their luxurious business wallets!

There is in black and brown in my case I got the brown as I love brown accessories! The wallet has a very professional business look and goes perfectly with a navy blue suit (just gave my outfit look away 😅)!  The wallet can hold up to 12 cards which if you do, lend me some of those cards hahah!!

For those guys that might hate having the phone in a pocket and their wallet in another, this wallet can solve that problem as your mobile can fit inside! It has a zipper that when you open it you’ll have 3 sections, 2 open sections on the sides and a zipped section in the middle mostly to keep your coins inside.

Big thank you goes to Ryan Coleman for sending me this amazing wallet! Was definitely a pleasure going out with it!

Make sure to keep reading until you reach the end as I got some discount codes for you guys to use!!!

For this shoot I wore my navy blue Ermenegildo Zegna suit with my dark brown double monk Gagliardi shoes! The wallet matched perfectly with my shoes making the perfect combination! Can’t forget the white handkerchief and one of my many Gagliardi ties 😅! To finish the look I wore my custom designed Colton James Watch

What is a “Fashion Blogger”?

Hey guys! 

Hope you all had a great weekend! To start the week I finally decided to write this post which was approved by some of my fellow followers! I already had done this research before in order to develop myself, be different and better but this time I made a deeper research for you guys!

What is a “Fashion Blogger”?

That’s the biggest question fashion enthusiasts mostly ask themselves! I myself was one and when I made my research I was able to grow and become a legit fashion blogger! I think most of the people think fashion blogging is very easy, just pose with some cool outfits, make a facebook page and post them and then you’re a fashion blogger.

That’s not even close to being a fashion blogger. Primarily, to be a fashion blogger one has to own his own website and writes blog posts and not just about a cool style you created! This hobby/job carries more than you think, it’s a mash up of a Fashion Influencer, Outfit Blogger and also Fashion Editor! Let me break these down;

Fashion Influencer;

This person influences people to be themselves when they wear something and also collaborates with other brands to get discounts for their followers. In order to work with great brands one must have a great amount of followers and also engagement, especially on Instagram which is the leading social media app that fashion influencers and brands use to promote themselves!

Outfit Blogger;

This person aims in trying to create trends or some different styles that no one seen or barely seen out in the streets! They blog about their style in saying how they got inspired, mentioning the clothing brands name for the chance of maybe being featured on their pages and also influencing other people! 

An outfit blogger is an influencer as well but aims more to create his/her own styling ideas choosing his/her own brands!

Fashion Editor;

This person is more likely to be a magazine writer, following how fashion is evolving, trends changes and searching about fashion houses. They can also style photoshoots or write about a certain events. These used to hold the front rows in all important fashion events but now they share it with influencers and bloggers!

_______________________________________

To be a legit fashion blogger one must own these three areas! It takes time, devotion and patience, for example I have been researching so I can know more on how I will be writing this post that it took me a week of research and find time whenever I could and also wrote this post after midnight as that was the moment I had some free time. 

For me fashion blogging is a job, I put time and devotion into every post, I might not get paid for it and barely get any feedback or attention but I keep myself positive in whatever I do and motivate myself to be better! I’m sure that time will come!

The following posts are some posts that clarify what I’m saying is true,
that I am a legit fashion blogger;

  • Fashion Editor; Previous post featuring the latest collection of Tommy Hilfiger and Gigi Hadid! I looked up why they chose this theme, what those the theme mean/refer to them and also chose the most outfits I personally liked!

  • Fashion Influencer; This was the first time I collaborated with a brand! I had the honour to work with one of the brands I really love, Ray-Ban! I worked on their last optical campaign of last year and also featured on Vision Opticians alongside some known Maltese characters, which for me was a pleasure to work with on the same campaign! I was requested to take specific photos showing off the optical glasses I was given to feature!

My Very First Big Brand Campaign!

  • Outfit Blogger; Lately I have started collaborating with Hudson Group Malta! I will be creating different styles on a monthly base and blog about the look!

Smart Casual Look!

Hey you guys! Hope you are all doing great! On Monday I arrived from my recent experience in Sicily with ETM Malta! I worked with some amazing Italian photographers and also got to meet the Italian director and also meet again the Sicilian Director! It was truly an honour meeting and working with everyone of them and I already got some photos and they are looking SUPPERR!! 

This month I wanted to create a more classical look but still keeping it a bit casual. This look is definitely great for a sunny cold day in winter! For this combination I wore a navy turtle neck from River Island, washed blue jeans and brown monk shoes by Gagliardi to make the outfit stand out! 

28277824_1812616405477226_1535921908_o

The style is comfortable, classic and a bit casual making it just right for almost any occasion make it a dinner, hanging with the lads for a drink, going out with your girl or a simple stroll in the nature (like I did 😅)!

28276101_1812616652143868_1058236187_o

This turtle neck has really become one of my favourite winter styles so far as it is one of the important tops men need in their closet! No need to have a ton, just  3 classic colours maybe like black, navy blue and beige giving you different tones and styles!

Send me how you styled your turtle necks and I will share your look on my social media! 

That was all for this post guys! Hope you enjoyed it and stay tuned for the next one! Make sure to subscribe to my blog and follow me on Instagram @itskylemagri to keep yourself updated!

Summarising My Latest Styling Looks And End Of Year Post!

Hey you guys! Just two days for another new year filled with unexpected memories and events! Like a week and a half ago I mentioned something about some work I had to do and also lately you might have seen me post some outfit looks from River Island and NewLook, well that was my work! 

With pleasure I can announce my partnership alongside Hudson Group Malta which I will be styling myself from certain brands every month trying to come up with some great and efficient looks! I might also throw some giveaways now and then so if you got some ideas of how I should do these giveaways or maybe what should I include feel free to comment them below or if you are more comfortable telling them privately feel free to hit me up with an email or just message me on any social media!

This months three looks were Modern Smart Casual, Street Style and Sporting Style.

The first look I posted was the Modern Smart Casual. The shirt was definitely a great addition to my wardrobe as I have been telling myself I need another shirt for a long time ( shirt lover alert)! 

31488768_Unknown.jpg

I found this beauty at NewLook! They had some great stuff and I’m sure they refilled themselves with more great stuff as they always have an open wide of styles! For this time I matched this shirt with my ripped washed jeans and a pair of brown loafers! 

Really loved the outcome but I was thinking maybe next time I will level it up and use it for a smart style instead of casual, will see how it comes!


Next style was the Street Style with another piece from NewLook! This might look quite plain but as I saw it, it immediately caught my eye! That embroidered rose is definitely great to make this type of style!

IMG_8522.jpg

It is a very minimal t-shirt which it also caught the eye of many other people! As a person I like to try many different looks and as you might have seen my Insta Posts and also my journey through fashion aanndd also the drastic change from only these two photos above you can see that I am quite comfortable in wearing different styles!


The final look was the Sporting Look this time from River Island! I have been searching for this specific mix of materials in this type of style for years and now I have finally managed to get my hands on it! This half-zip hoodie has an upper part of sport material, arms and abdomen part of normal cotton material BUT INSIDE IT IS FLEECY

IMG_8657-2.jpg

If you did not get your hands on this hoodie yet make sure to get it! You can only imagine the comfortability and warmth you will have in a cold morning jog! Definitely a must for this winter! 

With this said it brings us to an end! I hope this journey alongside Hudson Group Malta will continue and get better in the coming months! 

What can I say, this year was a huge year for me for my blogging career as I had chances to work with a some brands and also develop myself even more, started modelling and so far I am really moving forward as a model and also forming part of the agency as more than a model. 

Enjoy these last couple of days and HAPPY NEW YEAR YOU GUYS!! THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING ME!! DO NOT FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE TO MY MAILING LIST! (Just got hyped haha)! 

See ya next year!

Miss Winter Elegance Winner!

Here we finally arrived at the end of this competition! As you could have understood who the winner is from the ‘featured photo’, meet Victoire Muscat ‘Miss Winter Elegance 2017!’

From the beginning I knew that she had a strong chance in achieving this award! Apart from being beautiful, she is super talented, outgoing and with an amazing character! When she hits the stage she is a different person, she changes that much that she rocks every stage she goes on!

 In this competition she achieved another award apart from the winning title she was awarded the ‘Overall Model Look Winner’! After this competition Victoire modelled for Xiks in another event held by Ivan Gaffiero.

Last few months of this year for Victoire were quite amazing in my opinion as she was not only awarded these two titles but she also made it in the calendar of  ETM – Malta! Victoire worked very hard and improved a looott and well, hard work does pay off! It paid off so much that she was given the month of February of next year, meaning within two months we will only look at her haha!

Here are the two shots that show the two biggest achievements of her last couple of months! The first shot you will find the photo from her last competition taken by Manquilina – Photography and on the second one you will find Victoire with our loving directors with the photo chosen for the ETM Calendar taken by none-other but our director Patrick from Nellas Fotography!

Credits to the photos go to Manuel Aquilina for the competition photos (Manquilia – Photography) and our director for the featured photos in the post and also the calendar Patrick Nellas Spiteri (Nellas Fotography)!

Lastly do not forget to show support to another beauty from our agency!

This is the pre-ending post for this year! During this competition there was a special moment were previous winners went down the cat-walk. The first one was our super model Denise Spiteri which has achieved a lot at a young unbelievable age!

This great character and beautiful lady is one of the most outgoing female models I know! Her nickname given by the agency is “The Maltese Belen!” because she looks like her which she really does, here see for yourself!

 

The photo of Denise was taken in Belgium by our Director Patrick Spiteri helped by Cheska and myself by helping with lights to provide shadows and lighting!

Denise had just returned  back to Malta from her latest work abroad in Italy right on the day of the competition and she still slayed the cat-walk! Here is our beauty!
