MSc International PR Distinction

I’ve recently received the degree result for my Masters in International PR and I’m incredibly happy to announce I’ve been awarded a Distinction!

I’ve found that studying International PR at Masters level has equipped me with a unique set of skills specific to PR which I’ve been able to unite with my ongoing practical PR experience. I’m therefore incredibly happy with my degree result as it confirms my ability of both studying for a Masters degree and my competence in my chosen career sector of Public Relations.

I dedicated a previous post to my Beauty & Fashion PR Dissertation, which I’m happy to say I received a Distinction for too (77%). Receiving the news of my degree result has put me in an even greater positive mindset with respect to my PR career path, something I’m dedicated to achieving success in.

I’m currently thoroughly enjoying working at Beauty PR agency JWPR, and I feel certain that Beauty is the perfect PR sector for me :)

Celebrations at work…..

Beauty PR x London

I’m starting an Internship at London Beauty PR agency JWPR next week, meaning this week has involved lots of preparation, product testing, packing, shopping, and general excitement. Having worked in Beauty PR before, I can’t wait to return to the industry now that I’ve completed my PR Masters studies.

JWPR have an exciting range of hair and beauty clients, including one of my all time hero hair brands Batiste. Other brands the company work with include Nair, Denman, Aveda, and Darphin Paris. After meeting the team (including office dog Dolly!), I was lucky enough to leave with a bag of beauty goodies.

Batiste Light & Blonde has long been a staple in my hair routine, however it’s been great to try out the wide range of other products on offer from the brand. I particularly recommend the XXL Pumping Powder for those seeking some serious volume, and the new Oriental scent is my favourite yet! I’ve used Denman hairbrushes for as long as I can remember, and along with my Tangle Teezer, this Denman pink and black zebra print brush is ideal for easy styling on the go. Finally, Nair’s Brazilian Spa Clay worked wonders, leaving skin as soft and smooth as post-waxing minus the pain.

I love nothing more than discovering new wonder beauty products, and best of all I now get to work doing the PR for them too!

Rita Ora x Rimmel 2014

I’m currently VERY excited about Rita Ora’s collection for Rimmel launching early 2014, the perfect New Year Beauty Treat! Miss Ora is my #1 inspiration when it comes to both beauty and fashion, and I simply can’t wait to get my hands on her range of lip and nail shades for the iconic British cosmetics brand.

Speaking on her collaboration with Rimmel, Rita explains how excited she is to be following in the footsteps of such previous famous Rimmel faces as Georgia May Jagger and Kate Moss:

                        “I am absolutely obsessed with make-up and being adventurous with colours, so when I was given the chance to make my own collection with Rimmel it was like a dream come true!”

Equally known for her bold and fearless make-up looks as her classic smokey eyes and red pout, Rita’s range for Rimmel is sure to be as stand-out as the singer’s own signature style. I certainly can’t wait to inject some Rita-esque glam into my make-up bag and Get The London Look with a strictly Ora-inspired twist!

Vogue Fashion’s Night Out MCR 2013

Global Fashion Event Vogue Fashion’s Night Out headed to Manchester for the first time this year, and after getting caught up in the thrills and spills of such a stylish evening, I can tell you it definitely delivered! Mixing style and shopping with an array of discounts, DJs, freebies, and fashion shows, this night was every fashionista’s paradise.

Having attended University in the city for four years, Manchester is my second favourite city after London, so experiencing the vibe of such a landmark fashion event there was exciting. Although temptations were high, I managed to keep my purchases down to just the following Brian Lichtenberg-esque RAD t-shirt from River Island…

I’m still longing after the Rihanna for RI Collection (particularly this beauty), but I’ve got my fingers crossed for a Rih Rih x RI-themed Christmas haul this year.

I’d definitely recommend checking out Vogue’s next instalment of their famous Fashion’s Night Out. Thanks to Vogue x MCR for a night of fashionable fun!

Polyvore Galore

The pull of Polyvore remains too tempting to resist, particularly when I can play around to create dream outfits like these…

African print x Monochrome x Gold

Tomboy Glamour

This is one site that I’m 100% certain will never lose its appeal!

Beauty & Fashion PR Dissertation

I’ve recently completed and handed in my dissertation as part of my Masters in International Public Relations, something I’ve been constantly working on for the past 4-5 months. Reaching the end of my Maters PR studies and the end of my student life (finally!) feels amazing. With 7 months of full-time Internships already completed alongside my University studies, I feel 100% ready to enter the world of work.

Given my interests in Beauty and Fashion, it seemed only right to use these as the basis of my PR dissertation. Having already worked in Beauty PR, and having also experienced the Editorial side of the industry during my Internship at Now Magazine, exploring media relations between journalists and PR practitioners within these two industries was the ideal topic for me.

Interviewing a range of fashion and beauty journalists and PR practitioners in London was something I greatly enjoyed and found incredibly insightful. Although 15,000 words may sound like a lot, when it’s based around a topic you’re both passionate about and aspire to work in, it definitely helps!

I’ve enjoyed learning a great deal from studying for my Masters in International PR, and pairing this academic background with my extensive Internship experience means I can’t wait to apply all of my acquired PR and Marketing knowledge to the real world of work!
