Intern Diary: Eyeko Day One25.8.10
(Customary dodgy blue webcam photo!)
I started my internship at Eyeko today, as some of you may know! As with my previous internship, I was incredibly nervous while I made my merry way through London once again. It was quite easy to find, and I actually got there half an hour early (Idiot!) so sat in the lovely pink and white office for a bit!
My first impressions were: omgz it's Ling!!! Lol... Dork. And yes, it did deserve three exclamation marks haha, I honestly didn't even think that Ling would be there, despite being a religious subbie of hers on Youtube! But yep, total fangirl moment! I haven't told Ling that I'm an obsessive viewer yet haha - ssh! Ling's really lovely and friendly, as is everyone else, and it's nothing like I expected at all.
My first day consisted firstly of phoning magazines and the like to see whether they'd heard/tried our new products. I must admit I'm not the best on phones, but I got the hang of it in the end! Then I just worked through emails, forwarding them to relevant people and organising the inbox so it wasn't full of spam, and responding to emails about the Sticker Competition. Go and enter!
I also got to help pack products to be sent out to companies and bloggers. Exciting stuff! Aaand I got given the new Eyeko polishes to try which I'm very excited about, am loving Chi Chi already :) I also got to try/smell/comment on some other new products which I will probably be ordering despite my spending ban!
