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…..

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!

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!
