Fluff Meringues and More

By this point, you’re probably aware that I pretty much have the best summer internship ever (and if you’re new, you can read about our casual chic dress code and our pet-friendly policy and catch up!) But beyond getting to expand my wardrobe and see furry friends at work every day, we also have another company-wide tradition that I’m so excited to share: Wine Wednesdays!

It’s pretty self explanatory. On Wednesdays at the office (I’m blessed with that M/W/F life) someone brings in sips and sweets for the whole crew. It’s a great time to bond with your team and get those creative juices flowing with a quick sugar rush. This week, we had Fluff Meringues & More! (Thanks, Victoria!)

I’ve actually been super into meringues lately (I don’t want to tell you how many Trader Joe’s vanilla meringues I’ve eaten in the past 2 weeks… or even the past 24 hours) so I was super excited when Victoria showed up with these! The box came with an assortment of flavors of meringues and French macarons, two of my favorite desserts.

The assortment box Victoria bought came with a variety pack of flavors, but luckily I was able to guesstimate which one was which so I could get a flavor I liked. Based on my powers of deductive reasoning, I was able to end up with a caramel meringue and a chocolate caramel macaron. Score!

Having eaten the Trader Joe’s variety of meringues and macarons most recently, the freshly baked versions were like a little slice of heaven. Both were light and airy, but packed with flavor. I’ll definitely be bringing some home sometime soon! Although next time, I’ll make sure to order just the flavors I enjoy and take the guesswork out. The assortment pack sure made for a pretty picture, but I’m really not much of a passionfruit or pineapple kind of girl.

Bread and Butter PR

I am back with a gigantic LIFE UPDATE to share!

As I’ve talked about in previous posts, I’ve been on an internship hunt for summer 2019. I had been applying several places, and not hearing back. The process was way more tedious than I had ever expected. I was applying to so many cool places, and never even getting a response back was really starting to take a toll on me. Was I ever going to get an internship for summer 2019?

As some of you know, I went on a PRSSA trip to Austin back in March. (You can read about the trip here.) On that trip, one of the PR agencies we visited was called bread & Butter, and I fell in love with it immediately. As soon as I got home from the trip, I emailed the intern coordinators my resume and cover letter directly. I wanted to work for bread & Butter so badly, but after a few weeks of not hearing anything, I didn’t have high hopes.

But luckily, this story has an uber happy ending. I ended up being moved to the interview stage for bread & Butter, and then before I knew it, they had offered me the position! Of all the places I had applied to for summer internships, they were my top choice and I was beyond excited.

With all that being said, I am so excited to announce that I’ll be moving to Austin, Texas for the summer of 2019 to be the public relations intern for bread & Butter! I can’t wait to learn from such a great company and spend the summer in a new city. I hope you’ll continue to follow along this summer as I share my adventures in Austin!
