Well folks, I am back in the blogosphere. I apologize for my seven month hiatus, life has been quite the roller coaster and I haven’t had a chance to document it all. Well to the few of you who are still following my lonely little blog I guess I should update you on the fact that I am no longer an east coast girl. Kids, that’s right I am finally living in Los Angeles! If you know me then you know that I’ve always wanted to live in LA. I dreamed of the Hollywood Hills and watching the sunset over the ocean. Well in January I made my dream come true. Granted, Burbank (where I currently reside) is no Hollywood Hills, and I can’t exactly see the sun set over the ocean since I’m living in “The Valley,” but I am making moves and I’m trying my hardest to make it work out here for me.
My second week out here I landed myself an internship in the Fashion PR world at Red Light PR. Now, I don’t know the darnedest thing about fashion PR. Sure I love reading Vogue, and I tend to pretend I am sitting beside Joan Rivers during a tape of the Fashion Police, but when it comes to fashion PR I was a newbie. It also doesn’t help that I like to dress for comfort, and what looks best on my body rather than what’s trending. Boy, did I stick out like a sore thumb on my first day. There I was, walking in wearing my Old Navy skinny jeans, a blouse from Target, and flats from Payless. The only way that I can properly describe my first day at Red Light is that it bared quite the resemblance to Anne Hathaway’s first day at Runway in The Devil Wears Prada. Ladies and gents, you may call me Andy Sachs.
Though I hate Anne Hathaway with a passion for stealing Kate Hudson’s wedding day in Bride Wars, I can now sympathize with her character. From having a mental breakdown in the bathroom to having to drive and park the CEO’s Cadillac, I think I can say that I truly experienced the fashion PR world and I can say with confidence that it is not for me. I stuck it out, definitely excelled and became one of the “favorite” interns (at least I’d like to think so) and I would be more than happy to share some of my favorite RLPR stories with you. It’s not my intention to bash the company, because I do have to admit I did learn a lot, and RLPR combined with my previous internships got me to where I am today- a paid internship at GolinHarris. But before I start telling you all where I am today in my life, I need to share some of my experiences in the last four months.
Enjoy the future posts, I promise not leave you guys again!
