Another workshop has come and gone, and we had such a blast! Seeing all of our attendees diligently typing notes, and engaging with our awesome guest speakers made our hearts melt, and so did their kind words at the end of the workshop. Hearing how much everyone loved their experience and how much they learned makes this all worth it. Can you believe this is our sixth workshop?! 

Pink Olive gave us these gorgeous little cards to brighten up the day! It's a nice little motivational message to remember.

This Jasmine Body Oil from Herbivore Botanicals, makes the skin feel so smooth! Seriously, I didn't know what hydration was until this body oil showed me what's what. If you catch me smelling my forearm on the train, it's because I'm addicted to this Jasmine scent.

This Is Ground gave us these cute leather cord tacos to keep our cords organized. Every PR girl needs this! I can't tell you how many tangled headphones and chargers I had in my bag before these little leather organizers of joy came into my life.  DAILE and Herbivore Botanicals are restoring hydration. As PR girls, sometimes we are so overworked, we slack a bit on taking care of ourselves, including hydrating our skin. But with packaging this cute and products that make our skin feel so supple, there is no way to forget this step anymore, no matter how busy we get. If you catch me smelling my forearm on the train, it's because I'm addicted to this Jasmine scent. And with DAILE, seriously, my skin has never been more moisturized, despite the winter weather!

Hartland Brooklyn gave us these gorgeous house plant calendars, because duh! We need to stay organized. Oh, and they double as postcards. All we have to do is tear the dates off at the perforated line, and voila, instant stationery to brighten someone's day!

So much Malvi goodness! Our attendees scarfed these down in a matter of seconds. This is our new addiction. I've been eating one every night, and I didn't think I even liked marshmallows. *hides face* If you warm them up for 5-7 seconds in the microwave, you have an upgraded s'more.

And what's a celebration without confetti? The Flair Exchange was the sprinkles on the cupcake, helping us all celebrate PR and what we learned throughout the weekend with boxes of confetti for our goodie bags!

Our polaroid wall was a huge success! It will definitely be making an appearance at our next workshop. 

Our networking round was full of top PR pros who were more than willing to share their industry secrets, pet peeves, and their "do's and dont's." They taught us all so much!

Look, Mom - no hands! We got to know our attendees very well, including their special talents. That being said, Laura Wingfield showed us that she can balance a spoon on her nose for an infinite amount of time. Goals!
