Well, I’ve been at Cooler Magazine for nearly 2 months and last Friday was the editorial deadline for issue 6. It’s been pretty crazy for the last fortnight here, but now I have a spare 5 minutes to write another little something to update you all on my placement… and just general Cooler news!
As I mentioned, the last 2 weeks have been so busy as I’ve been helping Poppy and Amanda tie up a few loose ends with some articles, including chasing images and getting the odd prices for things. I’ve also finished off final copies of Lust list, So hot right now, What’s your style, and the 2 main fashion shoots, and made sure the arty people had all the images so they can do what they need to do with them! These things may not sound a lot, but when you’re waiting for people to reply and get back to you and hunting for phone numbers and contact details, it can get very stressful! But don’t worry; it all came good in the end!
I’ve also been lucky enough to go to some press days to gather information and to see the spring/summer 07 ranges; and because of next seasons catalogues that we’ve collected and are being sent, I’ve had to tidy Poppy’s desk for her so she has space to get to work on the kind of things that will be used in issue 7!
As you can tell, there’s always something to do here, but at the moment we’re stepping down the pace a bit and enjoying not having to run around like headless chickens; although I’m pretty sure this won’t last for long!
It’s sad to think I only have a week and a half left… but I’ll definitely try to enjoy it as much as I can!
I’ll write another blog soon to give you a round up of my internship here at Cooler, along with some useful information for you girls (or guys!) that are maybe thinking that you’d like to give it a shot in the world of Cooler too!
