Hey everyone, Lauren here! Did you do anything fun for St. Patrick’s Day? I don’t celebrate in any way, but I did hang out with some friends the night before which was fun. The actual night of I had to work, but it was my final day at my job so it was exciting. It will be weird starting somewhere new on Monday, but I’m ready to move on and do more with my career, especially since I have my Master’s now. Plus, I’ll be in an academic environment, and I love working at colleges!
Anyway, some of you know that I will be visiting London for the first time this coming September. We’re making plans and booking all those lovely important things at the moment. It’s exciting, especially since I’ve never left the country before! So yeah, fun stuff. However, I would love to find ways (other than my job, which is still part time) to save money. I’ve done publicity for authors and smaller businesses before, and I’m happy to do something like that if anyone is interested! I have a website here with more details.
I do have some other “services” if you will that I can offer-
*Research help (working on a book, or other project, and need help finding information? I’m your girl!)
*Party planning (because you probably won’t be near enough to meet in person, this is more party planning where I can do research for you. I can find themes, or items you can utilize for those themes. I can look at Pinterest for free printables, find Etsy shops for things you could possibly buy for favors, etc. Anything you need! I have a blog that features some older parties I’ve done for myself and friends).
*Gift ideas/Planning: I love to find gifts for people, and I always try and look for unique items they would probably never get or even know about. If you have someone you need to get a gift for, get in touch with details about them and I can research possible ideas within a certain price range for you!
None of these have set monetary prices. I’m not looking for anything crazy. I’m just trying to do every little bit from now until September to save up for the trip. All of this money will go straight to my savings and will help with tickets, etc. beforehand and then for use when I’m actually overseas. I’d also love to be able to grab a couple items to give away for all of you lovely readers when I get back!
But yeah, if you are interested in anything above, or have other ways I may be of help, please get in touch: lauren51990 AT aol DOT com (feel free to offer a price point!)
Thanks everyone – feel free to tweet this out!
