(top to bottom...my 'what elle wears' photos...amazing mariafrancescapepe rings...a tidy fashion cupboard on my final day...cake pop...feeling festive)
well, my final week at elle has been and gone, and i am definitely ready to relax for christmas! although, i'm gutted i had to leave elle, i absolutely loved interning there and hope to go back soon!
the week was a bit intense at first, as i realised i was the only intern this week!!! that meant that i was in charge of a lot of returns - and when the cupboard had to be cleared by friday, that's a lot of work!! but, i didn't mind, as it meant i could show them what i could do! just call me super intern... myself and the fashion intern manager managed to completely clear the cupboard by friday, which was a hell of a lot of work, but sooo worth it to know i've helped make everyone's jobs after christmas easier as they won't have a pile of returns to come back to!!
it was super exciting this week as i was asked to be photographed for the infamous what elle wears gallery. i was sooo pleased as it's a massive privilege to be on the elle uk website - still can't believe it!! the pictures are uploaded above, and i just want to say a massive thank you to elle for letting me be on the website!
so, the week was a week of returnsreturnsreturns...but there were lots of perks! i got to try my first ever cake pop, which is featured above as a cute little penguin. BUT it was literally the most amazing chocolate fudge cake i've everever tasted. it was so squidgy and yummy, aahh... wish i could have it again! there's always sooo many sweets in the fashion cupboard, a little bit of sugar helps along with the day!
on friday (my final day booohoooo :() i bought in some chocolatey bits and a thank you card, which i think it of paramount importance at the end of any internship as it's nice to show appreciation at being given such an amazing opportunity. there was also a beauty sale in the fashion cupboard, which i thought you know, would be chilled.... i was veryveryvery wrong. people were lined up around the cupboard with empty bags waiting to be let in, and the minute we were allowed into the room people were pushing, shoving, scraping as many products into their bags as possible! it was anarchy. i was so scared. i need to man up for this industry! i managed to bag a lancome foundation, 2 percy+russell hair products, and some hair wax for my brother. i was also sososososo lucky and sooo spoilt with my goody bag from the fashion girls!!! i got a forever 21 scarf and beanie, topshop advent calender, no7 lipstick, clutch bag, victoria's secret pants...to name some of the wonderful gifts! christmas came early!
so it's over, and i am soso upset as i loved every second, such amazing experience. i hope to go back for a longer period next year! luckily, i have a week lined up at the guardian in the fashion cupboard for february, so keep your eyes peeled for more intern posts! until next time xo
