SPANX Week 10

I can’t believe my last week at Spanx has finally come and gone. The summer went by so quickly, and I cannot believe it’s actually over. I have learned so much during my time at Spanx. Not only from my bosses and mentors, but from the amazing interns I was able to work with. We all came in not knowing one another, all from different places and left as amazing friends. The week was pretty laid-back just because they didn’t want to give me too many projects as it was my final wee there. And one of my bosses was out with a concussion part of the week :). I did, however, have a chance to work on Leg Up and get o see some of the interesting and creative inventions women entrepreneurs have come up with. On Thursday, my bosses took me to lunch, which was a lot of fun! It was nice to get out of the office with them! On Friday, the interns all presented our final project to the CEO of the company, along with the entire HR team. It was extremely nerve-wracking, but it was so cool to see our final project come together since we had been working on it the whole summer. The team really seemed to appreciate it, and they were all extremely interested in it! I really enjoyed my summer at Spanx, and it still hasn’t set in that it’s officially over 😦 I would encourage anyone who was interested in Spanx to apply; it was an incredible experience and I am so thankful for everything I learned and all the amazing people I met.

Below is my final week of outfits!

SPANX Week 9

I can’t believe next week is actually my last week at Spanx. This summer has really flown by! I have loved every experience I have gotten thus far! This week, it was just me and Charlotte at work since Caroline was out of town and Lindsay’s last day was Friday! It was a pretty relaxed week. I did a lot of send outs and worked on our intern project since we present it next week! Below is what I wore this week. Come back next week to see the final week of internship outfits!

SPANX Week 8

Sorry, this post is so delayed… my laptop was having issues and had to shipped off to an Apple center to see what was wrong :(Luckily, it’s working again! This week went by super fast, and it was Lindsay’s last week. I really just worked on orders again all week and we got a lot of new items shipped to us, so I spent the majority of the week going through all the items and distributing them to the correct teams. We’re also sending stuff to LA for a party there, so I had to divvy out all the items for that and start packing it all up. It was a lot of ‘traditional intern work,’ but I don’t mind it at all! Although, I did have a big mess up. I sent a delivery to LA instead of NYC. So I called the hotel and got them a label to ship it back to NYC, but instead it got sent back to us… It wasn’t as big of a disaster as I felt it was, but we were still able to get them the items they needed in time — thank goodness!  Below is what I wore each day this week! Come back next week to find out about week 9!

SPANX Week 7

Nothing too new happened this week. I had to put a mailer together to send out, which consisted of putting together 25 boxes, filling them with crinkle paper, putting the product in it, wrapping tape around it and then putting the postage stamp on it and the address label. It was a lot of work, but they turned out really cute and my bosses were really excited to see them all put together. The other big event that happened this week was that I, along with two other interns, had to move desks. We were all three in an area near our bosses, but the desks were needed by new employees, so we moved to a different area. Our new are we nicknamed “Intern Island” because there is literally no one else around us. It actually has been really fun sitting in our new desks, because it’s only us interns around. I can’t believe that there are only three weeks left; I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun! Below is what I wore each day this week! Come back next week to find out about week 8!

SPANX Week 6

This week was no different than the rest. I would get in, do the orders I had in the morning to send in and then wait for a new assignment. One project I was working on was transcribing a speech Sara gave at a conference. And let me tell you, it was no small undertaking. It was around 46 minutes and took me 2 days and 9 pages in word 🙂 But I was able to do it and my boss was impressed; though I was cross-eyed after staring at the computer for that long. This week was packed with a lot of meetings. 3 of which pertained to the intern project all the interns were working on. It was a really long week, and I’m thankful that it’s over. I can’t believe I only have a few more weeks left! Below is what I wore each day this week! Come back next week to find out about week 7!

SPANX Week 4

Well this is a little late, but the weekend was a bit hectic. I can’t believe week 4 has come and gone already and I am (now) in week 5 — half way. This week we officially started in our new office. The week consisted of a lot of unpacking and getting organized, which isn’t always fun, but it was interesting to see it all unfold. I, with two other interns, helped another intern unpack her closet and log everything into a system. As much work as it was, the four of us had so much fun together and really got to know each other. I didn’t really do much PR stuff, aside from sending a few items for red carpet events (which is so fun!), but it was nice to actually interact with the other interns! Below is what I wore each day this week! Come back next week to find out about week 5!

SPANX Week 3

This week was probably the most hectic week. My boss was out of town for most of it, and the rest of the week was spent packing. We have officially moved into our new office, and it is INCREDIBLE! It is the most beautiful and fun office space I have ever seen, and I am so excited for Monday to be here to officially start working in it! I didn’t really do much else this week other than pack, but that’s part of being an intern! I am excited for the new office, getting settled, and getting new projects to work on! Below is what I wore each day this week! Come back next week to find out about week 4!

SPANX Week 2

I can’t believe week 2 at SPANX has already come and gone. This week was a bit slower than last, but I sort of figured that, with the big move coming up in just 1 week! Everything at the office is crazy, and it’s starting to look more empty with everything moving over. I started the week working on spreadsheets and primarily did that the rest of the week. As boring as spreadsheets sound, I actually really enjoyed it… probably because it wasn’t a spreadsheet involving math! The interns all ended the week with breakfast with Jan Singer, SPANX’s CEO. She has the most fascinating background, and I really enjoyed listening to her and all her advice! All in all, it was another amazing week, and I feel as though this is starting to become a trend! Below is what I wore each day this week! Come back next week to find out about week 3!

SPANX Week 1

This past week was my first week interning at SPANX! I am interning in the PR department, and absolutely LOVE it! Even though it has only been a week, I know it is the perfect place for me and that this summer interning there is going to be amazing! Right now, I am working on a lot of little projects since the company is moving to a brand new (incredible) office. Even the little projects have been fun! Below is what I wore each day this week! Come back next week to find out about week 2!

When in Rome

After a few days in Florence, we took a (very long) train ride to Rome. We really only had one full day in Rome and I was determined to make the most of it. We started at the Colosseum which is amazing. The fact that it has been around for so long and there’s so much history with it baffles me. It was (again) insanely hot so I wanted something flowy to be able to be comfortable. After the Colosseum we went to the Forum, which again was amazing. We had a quick lunch and then it was off to the Trevi Fountain, WHICH WAS CLOSED, for construction, but still. After way to much gelato and a short rain, we arrived at the Spanish Steps. We were able to see all the main sights during the day and then we also did a night tour to see the city in a different light. It was like another world and it was magical. All in all, it was an amazing trip and I enjoyed every moment of it!
