Pre-pregnancy pampering

by Harriet Warwick 7. October 2015 07:24
It’s only when you’re presented with the comfiest bean bag in the world that you realise how your body is in need of some rest and TLC. This week I headed to the newly opened House of Elemis in Mayfair to try their Peaceful Pregnancy Massage treatment. A foot cleanse, facial cleanse, full body massage and facial massage later, all carried out on the previously aforementioned heaven-sent bean bag, I was in a state of bliss. I’m a great believer in... [More]

Guest Post: The Life of a PR Intern

by Sophie Lowe 7. September 2015 06:19
Being a PR intern isn’t entirely what I expected. To be honest, my own lack of knowledge about the PR industry and the misconceptions about client to company relations are all to blame. Still, there have been a lot of things that surprised me, many that delighted me, some which have scared me and most importantly have persuaded me that a career in PR is for me. Whether you are a morning person or not, arguably the first hour of your day is enjo... [More]

The Benefits of Spa Travel

by Tracey Stapleton 7. September 2015 05:41
The UK has a huge range of wonderful spas but I feel that no matter how good a spa, there are benefits from taking a little spa travel abroad to find out what experiences are being offered elsewhere which might add value here in the UK. On my recent visit to Borneo I visited two hotel spas to experience the Malay spa journey although I was really there to see the orang-utans who were incredible to see, so much so we ended up sponsoring a 4 year...

Guest Post: The Power of Instagram–‘A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words’

by Sophie Lowe 28. August 2015 06:51
When I wake up, I am bored on the train, procrastinating from work, I automatically check Instagram. It’s an involuntary reaction. I will shamelessly say I am addicted to the app and I honestly feel withdrawal symptoms on days I cannot check it – what selfie has Kim Kardashian done today!? How much larger are Kylie Jenner’s lips?! And what witty cat meme will get me through my Monday morning blues?! The social media platform, created in 2010, h... [More]

PR stunt

by Harriet Warwick 11. August 2015 09:55
Working in PR, I love a creative, eye-catching stunt and I was impressed with the Neutrogena/Caras Magazine stunt in Brazil this month. With the latest issue, Caras offered customers a pack of Neutrogena wet wipes which could be used to remove the make-up of the actress/model, Giovanna Ewbank, who adorned the front cover. The objective of the stunt was to teach consumers about their daily skincare routine and educate readers to the fact that remo... [More]

Honey Honey!

by Tracey Stapleton 7. August 2015 06:23
A few years ago I met a very elegant and active lady in her 90s who, despite having been diagnosed with cancer over 20 years previously, swore by her daily dose of Manuka honey in helping her to keep well. This is not to say that she recommended honey as a treatment for cancer, she didn’t, it was very much a supplement and she took medical advice and treatment to keep the cancer at bay. The point of this story is that this was when I started to t... [More]

Guest Post: A Taste of PR

by Sophie Lowe 31. July 2015 10:50
This week at The Spa PR Company we’ve been discussing the temptation of chocolate treatments, from cocoa flavoured facemasks to fondue body wraps. Earlier this year however, confectioner Snickers found an even more innovative way to incorporate chocolate into their PR campaign. In reaction to Jeremy Clarkson’s suspension from the BBC following a fracas with his producer, Snickers mailed a box of 48 bars to the TV Presenter’s studio with a label... [More]
