My First Visit To The USVI

April 28th, 2009 — 4:14pm

One of the perks of working in travel PR is getting the opportunity to visit some of the world’s most beautiful places. This week, I’m enjoying a four-day jaunt (my first) to the U.S. Virgin Islands.

A glorious sunset view from St. John

I’m down here working on a video shoot at our client, The Westin St. John Resort & Villas, a sprawling beachfront property where every staffer greets you with a smile.

Since arriving on Sunday, I’ve seen a fisherman nab a giant mahi mahi, witnessed an iguana feeding and enjoyed a sun-drenched ferry ride over from the mainland.

Just another day at the office!

A Swanky Earth Day Affair

April 25th, 2009 — 9:21pm

Wednesday night, I joined a handful of my Quinn & Co. colleagues for a celebration of sustainable living at our eco-friendly client, The Visionaire.

Strike A Pose: Me with (from left) my colleagues Li, Katie and Caroline at The Visionaire event

A high-end residence located downtown in the heart of NYC’s Financial District, The Visionaire is a new luxury condominium boasting LEED Platinum certification – making it the greenest residential high-rise in the nation. It also boasts jaw-dropping floor to ceiling water views.

Katie, Caroline and I were assigned to register guests, which gave us an opportunity to take in the eclectic crowd. Posh Manhattanites mingled with journalists from the likes of Fox News and The Wall Street Journal and characters including a MySpace rapper who introduced herself as Miss Saigon.

My favorite guest turned out to be a fellow blogger named Robert, a.k.a. The Notorious ROB. A real estate and social media guru, Robert and I found plenty to talk about – including, surprisingly enough, the long and winding road to happily ever after.

Up next…dinner with Robert and our candid conversation about leaving singlehood behind and a business-related jaunt to the U.S. Virgin Islands.
