#TBT Small Girls Diaries
Shh, we’re giving a peek into our innermost thoughts and feelings in this post. Circa 2000s. We dug up our middle school diaries and found some hidden gems for this throwback Thursday.
Our co-founder, Mal, already shows her aptitude for tech from an early age via virtual dogs and explains what an avatar is:
We’re looking to Arianna Huffington’s 12 Steps To Thrive for a little mood booster this Wednesday afternoon.
Our co-founder, Bianca, has been a strong supporter of Arianna Huffington’s Third Metric/Thrive movement, in the workplace, which we all got a little taste of that when attending the conference earlier this year.
While her copy of Arianna’s book has been doggy eared, highlighted, and written all over to remember to come back to certain words of wisdom, this 12 Steps to Thrive infographic is actually a great summation of the actions you need to take in order to create a life of well being, wisdom, and wonder.
- Get 30 minutes more sleep tonight.
- Move your body.
- Meditate for at least 5 minutes a day.
- Listen to your inner wisdom & let go of what you no longer need.
- Start a gratitude list.
- Each night turn off your devices & gently escort them out of your bedroom.
- Focus on the rising and falling of your breath for 10 seconds whenever you are stressed.
- Pick an image that ignites joy in you.
- Forgive yourself for any judgement you are holding against yourself.
- Make small gestures of kindness and giving a habit and pay attention to how this affects your mind, emotion, body.
- Make a personal connection to people you might normally take for granted.
- Use a skill or a talent you have to help someone benefit from it.

Summer’s not over yet, but we’re on the hunt for Fall interns! If you’re interested or want more information, contact our lovely intern coordinator, Karen (firstname.lastname@example.org). We’d love to see your resume and some work samples.
Our dear friend Erica, of Of-A-Kind, wrote this amazing piece on Mashable about How to Start a Business with a Friend - and Actually Remain Friends, with her BFF co-founder Claire.
Obviously, as a girl-duo founded company, a lot of what they’re saying really resonated with us*. This piece is also extra special as we started Small Girls PR about 4 years ago, around the same time Claire & Erica joined forces, and I remember us meeting for the first time and discussing the projects we were about to embark on. Four years later, it’s hard not to feel nostalgic as well as proud of the success that both of our businesses have found.
From harnessing our shared history (which wasn’t as life-long as Claire and Erica’s since Mallory and I met only 6 months before we started Small Girls PR, though it feels as though we could’ve been friends for years), defining our roles (with Mallory taking on the title of CEO, and me doing more of that “creative, non-numbers, branding/ideas thing” as Creative Director), getting mistaken for each other and being asked whether or not we live together, and managing/nurturing our personal time together and apart- we can attest to the fact that these tips and tricks have definitely worked for us as well.
This piece is a must-read for fellow friend founders, who I imagine will also relate, or friends who are thinking about getting into business together, to get the real dealz. We’re so happy to call these two our friends and business running-buddies.
(Writing this post in first person on the SGPR blog- relating to me and Mallory- as though it were back in the day before we had a team contributing to the blog. Feeling inspired to get a little bit personal from this piece- and also apologies to Annie on our team for taking so long to get to this post written, even though I meant to share it when Erica’s piece first went up a month or so ago! Another challenge of growing a business- the shift in responsibilities from a two person team to a 12 person team! - xo, Bianca)
Going to The Hamptons this weekend?
Our client, PRIV, will be offering makeup touch-ups, manicures, and a braid bar to help you look beachy-beautiful.
Be sure to stop by: 153 Snake Hollow Road in Bridgehampton - this Sunday (July 27th) from 11am - 2pm
Do a little shopping, toast to summer, and #PRIVit.
Hope to hang with you there!
Our client, GE, announced the release of the Missions sneakers, a pair of modern day moonboots created from “super materials,” i.e. the stuff used to build jet engines and wind turbines. The release celebrates the 45th anniversary of the first human moon landing. This a pretty cool shift in product manufacturing for GE (which is rarely known to make footwear). The concept behind the launch itself, though, perfectly exemplifies the plans that GE continually keeps when it comes to social media. They’re always trying out different platforms and seeing what works.
The design for the limited edition the Missions sneakers is based on the original design GE used for Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong back in 1969. In addition to business and tech press, Small Girls was able to land (pun definitely intended) coverage in fashion outlets like Fashionista, ELLE (Malaysia), and InStyle.
Some other great press:
Jen Lee Koss, the co-founder of our client BRIKA, wrote about how her training as a Juilliard musician unconventionally prepared her for her job as creator of an online shopping platform for indie designers. Check it out on The Muse!
