Well, it's certainly been a while since I last did a PR Interview hasn't it?! This one is particularly exciting to me, as Alisa went to my secondary school but moved to Thailand and not so long ago she cropped up on my Facebook timeline as a PR student in Bangkok! So I, of course, … Continue reading PR Interview #11: Alisa Mcdonald, PR Student in Bangkok
My uni days are over!!! I finished my degree on Wednesday 18th May, with an exam on PR Strategy in the morning and an afternoon of eating/drinking and celebrating... perfection! I won't go into the nostalgic, emotional, I'm going to miss everyone sooooo much side of things (check out my last post for some of … Continue reading Solent PR Class of 2016
In FIVE days time I will have finished uni forever!! I still remember sitting in my room in halls at 1am re-vamping my blog, which was then wonderfulworldxoxo.wordpress.com (WHY????), and turning it into a PR blog. I remember getting my first ever First for an assignment. I remember winning my first blogging competition...I remember winning … Continue reading The final push…reflecting on the last 3 years
It feels like yesterday I wrote my blog post about choosing a dissertation topic back in October, but here we are 7 months later and it's all handed in! I won't lie, I worked blooody hard on it and I would certainly say it's been the unit I've enjoyed the most this year. 10,000 words … Continue reading Dissertation…Done!
I 100% in absolutely no way shape or form cannot at all believe that in 3 days time I will be starting my final...ever...term at Solent. When people say uni flies by, they are not lying - mark my words! I have mixed feelings about finishing uni. Whilst I will miss living with friends, having … Continue reading 3 reasons why I’m looking forward to no longer being a student
So, it may seem like I have officially dropped off of the PR blogger-sphere but fear not, I am still here, it's just I am currently buried to the neck in dissertation surveys, dissertation interviews, portfolios and client pitches. What the dreams of every 3rd year student are made of, eh?! I've made a little … Continue reading Final year update!
My time as the Solent PR Blog Editor is at an end! I’ve had a wonderful 2 years, and without getting that position I probably wouldn’t have got into PR blogging and my lovely little Live Love Laugh PR wouldn’t be here!
Have a read of what my journey here 🙂
After just under two years of being the Solent PR Blog Editor, I am officially passing on my role!
Livi Wilkes, Solent PR Blog Editor March 2014 – February 2016!
I became editor of the blog back in March 2014 after getting involved as a contributing writer then applying for the role of editor when it came up. I started my own blog in 2012 but it fizzled out as I had absolutely no niche whatsoever (go back to December 2012 on my personal blog and you’ll come across a blog post based solely around a Christmas jumper!). After becoming a contributing writer for Solent PR, I realised what my niche was…PR! I re-vamped my blog to be aimed at the PR world and, long story short, here I am – Britain’s Best PR Student Blogger 2015 and just an overall blog lover. So, really, I owe it all to…

I loved doing the Christmas gift guide for PR practitioners, so I thought I'd write a post for Valentine's Day too. Maybe secretly so my boyfriend comes across it and buys me everything on the list...wishful thinking?! P.S, sorry PR guys out there, this one is focused on the girlies! Emergency Prosecco and Chocolate Kit … Continue reading The Valentine’s Day gift guide for the PR Girl in your life

Happy New Year! Can you believe it's 2016?! I remember applying to uni back in 2012 and learning that I'd be in the 2013-2016 co-hort which seemed like bloomin' ages away...somehow, I'm now 6ish months away from graduating! For my last post in my Christmas blog series I've come up with some goals for 2016... … Continue reading A Very PR Christmas #4: my goals for 2016
