Yes, after what seems like forever and ago that I decided to share my internship experiences, I finally sat down and actually started to recollect my thoughts to write Chapter 1, How it all began.
Thankfully I did keep a journal throughout most of my Fashion PR related experiences so it’s just a matter of perusing through them to jog my memory on each.
Since I started sharing my internship experiences, I’ve received a handful of emails with questions for advice and questions about finding volunteer/internship/job postings. Don’t be shy, feel free to leave your question in the comments section. I will answer it under the comments too so others can benefit from your question!
While I was on vacay from writing here… I spent some time with my pupster Mo and his friends Gus and Toonie (from left to right). It was so great to finally enjoy some sun and welcome Spring.
They were also soaking in the beautiful weather and sunshine at a park bench by the pond.
A friend of mine forwarded this link to me. I found it quite entertaining! It compares the fashion scene in the United States to that in Paris… Enjoy!
Dear lovely readers:
I have hit wall. Ha! Similar to the cartoon up top, a mental block. More like blogger’s writer block!
I have repeatedly for the past week tried to write a post but nothing seems to come to mind. I am a firm believer in creating meaningful content and refuse to post something for the sake of posting.
I am feeling uninspired.
Le sigh, what do you do to get over what feels like the BIGGEST writer’s block of life? Your ideas are very welcome!
So… incase you are wondering where I’ve gone, i’m granting myself a 2 week vacation from writing here and promise to be back re-inspired and posting regularly.
This is completely random but purchasing my favourite, most dependable and if not THE BEST hairspray in the world today was almost a tramatic experience.
Having had two bad hair days two really bad hair days in a row, I finally walked into Trade Secret looking to replace my SEBASTIAN Professional Shaper Megahold hairspray. (I’ve been using this hairspray for the past 2 and a half years. It is because of this product that I remotely have a presentable hair do. I have really flat hair, i’ve tried every hair product imaginable to keep the volume in my hair and nothing except for the Shaper Megahold works for me.) But to my disappointment and for the third time in 2 months, I did not see it on the shelves. Border-line distraught and a little panic stricken I began to think they discontinued the product and my hair would have to forever look volumeless and undone. After my mini meltdown re the hair situation, I turned to the sales associate and asked her if they were ever going to re-stock the Shaper Megahold.
And then she told me… “SEBASTIAN Professional’s Shaper Megahold is no longer in the white bottles they were actually just on the shelf below in the black bottles.” As it turns out my beloved hairspray got a make over and a new name. It’s now Professional SEBASTIAN Shaper Fierce. And ofcourse all I could think of after reading the new name on the smaller black bottle was Sasha Fierce… why you ask? Probably because i’ve been scarred by Beyonce’s alter ego which has successfully ruined the word fierce for me forever.
Anyway, the moral of my story is just ask the sales associate the next time you go in there when you don’t see something because, i’m not even joking she had a “just ask” tag pinned on her shirt (I don’t know why I didn’t think to ask someone the last 2 times I was in there) and SEBASTIAN Professional Shaper Megahold lost some weight, got a make over, a new name and fooled me into thinking I was destined to bad hair for the rest of my life.
So I think i’m being a little ridiculous, but just a little…
I really want to buy this Coach dog collar, that is $78, for Mo (please excuse his unflattering, green eyes from the flash of the camera). I think it’s time he gets a new collar, you know spice things up a bit. He wears a plain, boring silver chain and when I was shopping online on the Coach website today, I found this bubble gum pink collar that I thought would totally bring out his personality.
Ok, so it may have been more of the fact that I thought his beautiful curly gray and white coat would go really well with something pink. And it just so happened to be a Coach dog collar.
Le sigh – the shopaholic in me is looking for the common sense in me to agree to this absurd purchase.
How much did this image of a semi-naked man, wearing Hello Kitty‘s head, with shiny spandex tights, just ruin your childhood image of Hello Kitty?
I’m going to assume that’s MAC‘s attempt to make Hello Kitty cute and sexy?
There were tons and tons and TONS of people lining up outside to get into this exclusive shopping event and even more people rammed, beyond capacity i’m sure, inside the store to see and purchase the new line. I’m not even kidding, it was packed like sardines in there. The overcrowdedness was killer to my shopping mood and impossible does not even begin to describe getting in arms reach to see or try the new product.
As many people as I saw buying the Hello Kitty MAC makeup, I think the poor organization and the small amount of space in the store, put a damper to the possible amount of sales. I can’t say I would attend another one of these MAC events because i’d rather shop in less crowded conditions and be able to comfortably see and try the product. Although, the originality of the Hello Kitty man did make for a great photo op and they did keep everyone hydrated in the overly warm conditions with unlimited cocktails.
Check out the pictures of the Hello Kitty frenzy!
It’s Chinese tradition to make sure your entire house is clean before you ring in the new year. I’ve cleaned my house but didn’t have enough time to “clean”/bathe my dog in the process…
Needless to say, my mom had a conniption. Because even after moving to and living in Canada for over 30 years she remains ever so true to her cultural roots.
Happy Chinese new year everyone and welcome the year of the Ox!
