if you didn't know, i work in pr and social media. and i often get to do pretty cool things. one of these AWESOME things was help at the launch of new products by hair care giants OGX.
i took the train to london with my colleague in the afternoon, and found the ultra cool cocktail bar in Waterloo. the room was completely bare, and we were left with boxes and boxes of product to organise in 3 hours before the media arrived. no big deal....
teamwork prevailed, and we were over the moon with the final result. OGX provide some of the most GORGEOUS smelling hair care products ever, their coconut milk shampoo is to DIE for. this event launched two new ranges, and also updated the media about the other ranges for interest.
we had cocktails, delicious food, a coconut shai, tom bola, and not to mention a giant glittery moon (because OF COURSE!). the media and bloggers loved it, especially when they were then whisked away to a circus on the south bank.
the life of a PR girl is one that often seems glamorous, and when i look back at this event i do think 'i am so lucky''. but you forget the hard work and dedication that goes into it, the hours of preparation, the sweatiness you feel as the firs people start showing up, the stress when you aren't sure if the big editors aren't coming, and the constant thoughts that you need to remember to say hello to this person, tag this person on instagram...etc. it's a full on job, but one i would never change!
until next time xo
