There’s nothing that I appreciate more in life than new experiences that help me find new directions and make me grow as a person.
This time we did it big!
Boxing at World Class Monaco in a MANURI gown? YES PLEASE. And when I say boxing… I mean boxing for real. The shooting was for Stylezza E-Shop – https://stylezza.shop/ that launched on the 5th of April, at Blue Gin, Monte Carlo Bay. It’s an e-commerce platform that promotes designers from all over the world and the concept of affordable luxury, creating the right spot for all the fashion lovers out there (we will talk more about that in my next post). I admire very much the hard work and the love for this bright project!
You know it’s getting real when you have the heavy, sweaty gloves on. We couldn’t start taking the pictures before a training with Souliman Abdourachidov, the champion of France! He made boxing seem easy when he guided a goof like me wearing the gloves for the first time.
Overall, it is honestly a pleasure to work out in such a dreamy and modern place like World Class Monaco. The coaches are super professional and experienced and that makes your whole experience a success, even if you are a beginner. You can choose from a large variety of activities like group exercise, beauty, spa and wellness area (if you are a lazy potato like me or you just want to relax after a good workout), gym, pilates, even a World Class restaurant (then add an extra half an hour workout to forget the burger you just had). I know, I could live there forever too…
The team was a dream! Andra Oprea, the Founder of the concept Stylezza and her husband are beautiful humans inside and outside – because of that the whole day was so productive and fun at the same time. It’s very important to feel comfortable during a photoshoot. Bianca Vamvu, my girlie partner for the shoot is insanely beautiful and… insane! Laughing like that with people you’ve met a few hours ago and feel like you’ve known them for years is one of the best feelings ever, isn’t it?
Thank you Guglielmo Cianci for letting me punch you and sit on you (aah, Italians), thank you Souliman Abdourachidov for teaching me how to kick some asses!
Last but not least, a huge thank you to the sweet and talented Irina Awad who is in charge for our gorgeous makeup. We can wear bright pink eyeliner at 10 in the morning because she says so. Check out her lovely work here and here.
The second part of this photoshoot was in a dreamy location, in a very special garden. Keep in touch to see the second part of the fairytale in a future article.
