Today was day three of being an intern. It was my first time to be in The Irish Times offices so it was interesting to see what it is like to be working in such a big newspaper and how it’s run.

When I arrived there, I got a desk all to myself. I started off by reading through the look book for Monsoon’s spring/summer range, Monsoon Fusion and Accessorize. I then started to write a piece about the new collections.

We then went to the Benefit event in the Morgan hotel. The launch was to introduce their new foundation Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! We were shown a demonstration of the product, which will be available in nine different shades. There was also a brief presentation on the development of the product and its features.

In the afternoon, I got to experience a bit more of the journalism side of things. I went to see the newly released sci-fi film Chronicle. I didn’t really think I would like it that much but I actually really enjoyed it! Then, my job was to write up a review of it- mainly on the plot of the movie and my opinion.
