Sleep in.. 

Of course you will sleep in, because you're a celeb in Istanbul. You start the day around noon with your shades on. 

@12:30pm // Brunch-- BACKYARD (Bebek)

It's a trendy cool space that has good coffee, good food, fresh juices, and especially bloody mary to beat your hangover!! This is a cool private spot that no one will see you.

Shoot!! Your driver is stuck in traffic! Take a cab. You're headed to Nisantasi for some prime shopping.  

@2:30pm // Shopping-- SHOPI GO (Nisantasi)

You need a new outfit for the night. It's a secret location. Buzz the door to get in. Make sure there are no other celebs that got in before and bought the same clothes you choose.

Here is "The Turkish Designer" that will help you stand out tonight. Her creation is original, and no one will be wearing it tonight. Bring it back home, and show it off to your friends.
