In all honesty…

… life can be really hard can’t it? Stopping blogging for the past year has been a decision that wasn’t conscious, nor was it intentional – it just happened. Taking a year out of my degree to partake on a placement was one of the best experiences of my life, yet it wasn’t easy (is…

Socia Media | Friend or Foe?

Recently, the perception I have of social media has changed… Yes, its a fantastic source for sharing info, content or just simply your thoughts, but it can also take a turn for the worse. We’ve seen Zoella attacked around her #mycalvins selfie, and this got me thinking – the fact that someone that’s created their…

Wonky Fruit & Veg – The ‘ugly’ Truth…

I’m sure we’ve all seen in the media recently the newly found supermarket scandal – ‘wonky’ fruit  and veg. Yes, that’s right, I’m a PR student who wants to talk about the aesthetics of potatoes – I must be mad right? Not quite. The issue (as it can only be described) seems to have taken…

Social Media Personalities | How well do we know them?

It comes as no surprise that the social media personality is one we talk about a lot in today’s society, whether its in the media, or our every day activities and conversations. But, I wanted to talk about what’s really behind the façade – a lot of the time, I cant help but question whether…

Clever Calvin Klein?

The start of this month has seen world renowned brand Calvin Klein launch a new fragrance – the twist? It’s genderless. CK2 hit select stores last week after being pre-empted by the company back in November, and its no surprise that the product has had mixed reviews. The photos below link to the press articles…

That brilliant business idea…

  Whilst sitting peacefully in a nail bar in Putney having a manicure, it can’t be normal that my mind was whirring away about the brilliant concept of business idea that I was witnessing. But well, I guess that comes with the PR profession really doesn’t it… London Grace is a nail bar situated in Putney High Street,…

Branded for life?

Now, my guess is that from all of the logos shown in the featured image, you can guess all of the brands, right? During a leisurely Sunday breakfast reading this week’s  Waitrose Weekend, I came across the article ‘Branded for life – the tests of time’, and it got me thinking. To prove that logos…

ELLE | THE FEMINISM ISSUE

November’s issue of ELLE saw a take on feminism like never before – celebrating the power of female solidarity, they launched their #morewomen campaign. “From…computer programmers to racing-car drivers, we are combining our voices, skills and enthusiasm to support each other and demand fairness and equality for all” The debate on feminism started two years…

My communication style… A comms quest?

During our lectures recently we had David Norton, Founder of CommsQuest come to talk to us about our communication styles.

L O U I S V U I T T O N | S E R I E S 3 | E X H I B I T I O N

The Louis Vuitton Series 3 Exhibition is the first time I’ve been to such an event with a PR related mind. Throughout the walking tour of the designers life and brand story, I was constantly thinking about a number of public relations connections… My thinking from my time at the stand alone exhibition, which was…

The campaign is all about finding the very best women scientists… “with cures for cancer within our grasp, we want to see more female scientists reach the top of their careers…

That millennial profile…

Lately during my degree we’ve been talking a lot about millennials, or Generation Y as some of you might know it, and it’s prompted me to write about it (mainly because I’m one, and I don’t agree with some of the characteristics!) As there are no exact dates for this categorized generation, you could be one…
