The good thing about making up your career as it goes along is that you never know what the next day, week or month will bring. (On the flip side, the bad thing is the unpredictability of it all which can every so often lead to a "what am I doing with my life" mental meltdown.)
Well, this summer, an amazing opportunity has landed in my DL1961 jeans-covered lap. SaksPOV has asked me to serve as their Guest Beauty Editor. When I first started in PR all I wanted was to be a beauty editor- my love of scouting the market and coming up with trends is what actually led me to do television work- booking a segment was an excuse to ask everyone in the industry questions that I personally was curious to know the answers to, and still get into work by 9:30am. Now, to be able to take those skills, along with my love of writing, and put them to use for Saks? I mean, come on- it really doesn't get much better than that.
