We’re looking to this Refinery29 profile on chief digital officer and deputy secretary of technology for the state of New York/Superwoman Rachel Haot for a whole lot of inspiration this Monday. Especially this bit of advice:
“As long as you’re adding value, I think you’re putting yourself in a good position and you’re putting your organization in a good position. As long as you focus on contributing, anticipating where you can add value, just taking responsibility without having to be asked, that’s it.”

Our client PRIV was mentioned in this Mashable piece on the trend of beauty products receiving high tech makeovers. While the article mostly focuses on high tech updates to things like hairdryers, PRIV is the only on-demand beauty app featured! Read more here.
Our friend Joel
shoots for Billboard
, and one of the perks is sometimes he gets an all access pass to catch Wiz Khalifa behind the scenes
during tour. Stoked to get an early look at some of the candids as he makes the Under the Influence rounds. Honestly, anyone who named themselves “wiz” because they believed themselves to be “good at everything I did” is either a maniac or a genius and we’re all about playing in that space in between.
That said, Wiz has also gone on record saying he spends about $10,000 a month on weed. Being a bootstrapped company, we reckon budgets daily, so we took the liberty of figuring out what else you could spend that same amount of cash on happily.

One of our summer interns, Christine Choo, wraps up her internship today (sad)! As a final recap, she gives us a run down a typical day as a Small Girls Intern:
10am Arrive at the SGPR office, catch up on emails, and check on SGPR socials.
11am First cup of coffee (let’s go!) and it’s time to come up with pitch angles!
11.15am Office-wide circulation of a funny video/article (cue laughter and chatter). Today’s pick: Ew! With Taylor Swift
1pm Lunch break with fellow interns! (Our fav combo: The Meatball Shop + Ice Cream)
2.30pm Second cup of coffee + working on media lists & stalking reporters
3.15pm Annie makes popcorn! Snacks always make calculating media impressions easier.
3.30pm 1.5 hours left and work starts piling up. Tracking socials, looking up potential blog posts… but of course, I get everything done!
4.30pm Intern chores! We do the dishes, take out the trash, wipe down the conference room and water the plants.
5 - 5.30pm Whew! Wrapping up the day and noting to-do’s for tomorrow.
As a Math and Econ major, I might sound like a fish out of water at a PR company, but this has been a really rewarding internship. Shout out to the team for their constant guidance because I definitely feel ready for the PR world!
For her intern project, Christine pioneered an Intern Handbook as a guideline and journal for future interns! We really have the best interns.
Need a new work wardrobe? Refinery 29 talked to the lovely Kathryn Minshew, founder and CEO of The Muse, about her personal and professional style.
"My style is pretty classic; in NYC I generally shop in places like Ann Taylor, Zara, and Tumi — though I have the aforementioned pair of killer faux leather leggings from Aritzia."
Our client Ann Taylor recently featured Kathryn in their summer Changemaker series, which spotlights inspirational women with skyrocketing careers.
