It's finally weekend! Oh happy days haha!

I was sitting and thinking what I wanted to write about on this blog and one thing that popped in my head was my days at Yves Saint Laurent Beauté. Last semester I got the opportunity to do an internship at L'Oréal Sweden at the Luxe division (YSL) and I was Jr Retail Marketing intern (basically I was helping the Brand Manager). The thing that made me happy was the responsibilities I got because my boss believed in my abilities and gave me bigger tasks that most interns don't get. My time at YSL was so much fun and I got be involved in different campaigns for example Vernis À Lèvres Vinyl Cream, Black Opium Wild, YSL Fall Look & Holiday Look 2016 but the biggest "event" was the launch of the perfume Mon Paris EdP.

Let me say that I totally miss working with the brand and whenever I go to a department store I see everything in another point of view since working with retail marketing and can tell if it "looks good" with artwork and makeup grids. Anyway, I was in city just walking around and as I was passing KICKS, I suddenly stopped and saw the gondola for Black Opium the Floral Shock. It was my last project before ending my internship, it felt really nice to see the final result in the shop so I went inside to look. Well it ended up with me buying the stuff haha but hey sometimes we need to spoil ourselves right?

First let me say that YSL The Shock mascara is my new favorite, it's just amazing. I'm not just saying this to "promote" the product but I have tried few mascara from different brands during my time at L'Oréal and this is the best one yet. It is easy to apply, it really brings out your eyes and add volume, most importantly it's easy to remove. As for the fragrance, if you like the "Black Opium family" then you going to love this one as well! Yes, YSL is more pricey brand since it's more "exclusive" and luxurious but The Shock mascara is more towards Millennials and is "cheaper" than other YSL mascara.


Have you tried the new YSL mascara or perfume? What did you think?
Ok I have to get ready, I'm meeting up my friends soon so talk to you guys later

I have been living at the library the past days working on our problem statement of the thesis. It's always difficult in the beginning to come up with a good research question without getting any feedback but thankfully we have our first seminar on Monday!

Enough about that!

I met up with my childhood friend for dinner, we decided to have some tapas today! We went to a place called Iberico Tapas & Bar . The restaurant was super cosy however it felt more like a place to have a date night, you know Lady & the Tramp vibe with the cloths haha but I was on friendly "date night" so it was okay I guess! Jokes aside, the food was really good food, I tried few dishes and they were YUM! I would totally recommend this place if you ever visit Uppsala!

We did some catching up about life and careers, we also decided to see a movie on Saturday with another friend so that will be fun! After dinner we went to the Central station and had dessert while my friend waited for the train, of course I had to try the raspberry cheesecake that was calling my name and it was totally worth it !


​Now I'm at home getting ready for bed! Please let me know what you want to read more about in my blog!

Good night <3

Yesterday was really fun!

The day started out with lectures but unfortunately it wasn’t relevant for our thesis so we left earlier to attend the H&M lecture instead haha. There were so many people there and the presentation was really good where they explain the roles of different sectors in the company, collaboration with The Weeknd and their expansion strategy/visions which I found really interesting since I’m studying International Business. After the lecture, I spoke to more companies that were not there yesterday and some of were interested in my profile and said that I should apply to them.

In the evening I went to a pre-party at a friend’s house where we played cards and listened to E-type since we were going to see him live later. I think we arrived at Norrlands Nation around 10 PM, thank goodness we had bought tickets instead of waiting outside in the cold to get the “after release” entrance. There were lots of people at Norrlands hyping for E-type mostly for the nostalgic feels, it was like being 10 years all over again haha. My classmates and I were talking. laughing and dancing while waiting for the show to start. It felt nice to some thing other than studying. When E-type entered the stage all the kids were getting all energetic and jumping everywhere. We all started to sing out loud to the famous hits of the 90’s while E-type was mostly letting the fans “sing” his parts and the girls on stage were doing the work.


​He was performing hits like Angels crying, This is the way, Here I go again, Campione etc. Sure it wasn’t the best concert vocally or show wise but it was fun. The show went on an hour or so, it was hard to keep track of the time but we went to MAX to grab some food/milkshakes before heading home. What I love about living in Uppsala as a student is that you never get bored, there’s always something going on especially with the nations, hanging with friends or other activities. The town itself is also awesome and cosy!

​Hope you guys enjoyed this post and that you have a great Friday, talk soon

Don't you just love those days when you feel inspired, on top of the world and to think that any thing is possible?

That is how I felt right now! Today it was Kontaktdagarna at Ekonomikum (Uppsala University); it's a two days event/career fair where companies come to the university and meet-up with the students and talk about their organizations and different career options. But truth to be told, people mostly just go to their stands to grab some free stuff like pens and candy (guilty aswell haha). Nah! People listen too ;)

Since I'm graduating this summer it's good to start early with the work-hunting process and see what interesting companies are out there and what they have to offer. I spoke with quite lot companies, not all of them were for me but it was nice to hear about their experiences and tips for the future, which I really appreciated. Around noon we went to attend a presentation that Microsoft had where they talked about their vision and future technology, which was really cool and interesting to see (being a tech nerd). H&M will have their presentation tomorrow, so I look forward to that!

Well, now it's time for bed! Sleep well <3

Monday, monday... please let me sleep five more minutes, pretty please!

NOPE!

The day started quite early for me with classes about qualitative methods and study! Being a Master´s student this was just a repetition of previous papers but since I'm writing my thesis this semester it's important to keep the mind updated so I don't choke! The class was ok though but I was more excited about the afternoon since my thesis partner and I had a meeting with GLOSSYBOX regarding our paper so we took the train to the heart of Sweden; Stockholm City!

We arrived to the office and was warmly welcomed by a giant pink elephant and the GLOSSYBOX staff, they were so nice. The girls who we had meeting with showed us around and I totally loved their cute office with the pink/white/girly details. I think I loved their "showroom/studio" the most.

The meeting went really well and we are going to do a case study of the company. I will not go into details but I'm really excited even though we have to work hard to write an academic paper related to theories!

I want to say a big thank you to GLOSSYBOX for giving us a "trial" box to get the customer experience, which will be cool to analyse. I will write a separate post about #glossybox and their concept!
