In this case, it’s two days in the life. We asked Amanda Haines, Owner and Director of Vancouver’s Reformation PR to capture 48 hours of her life! Ever wonder what a busy publicist does on a typical day? Follow Amanda as she captures her moments.
5:03AM: The Vancouver Home + Design Show (VHDS) opens tonight! I’m up and at ‘em to meet the crew from Citytv’s Breakfast Television at BC Place before 6am.
5:45AM: Arrive at BC Place. My home for the next four days! And no, the sun still isn’t up.
6:00AM: Coffee and a quick look at the day’s notes and media schedule. It’s going to be a crazy busy day of media appointments for the show’s top talent.
6:47AM: We’re rolling! Stylist (and my friend) Janette Ewen nails the first of four Breakfast Television segments.
11:30AM: Morning media appointments wrapped. Time to pick up the refreshments for tonight’s opening night party, courtesy of Parallel 49 beer. Between the early morning wake-ups and beer hauling, today is feeling decidedly unglamorous.
2:00PM: Set-up time! Signage, swag bag stuffing and A/V coordination for tonight’s opening night party starts now.
3:30PM: Nothing like a little massage and a coffee to calm the nerves before a big event.
5:50PM: The crowd is building for tonight’s marquee event: the Dessert Duel, a chocolate mousse throwdown between Thomas Haas, Bruno Feldeisen & Curtis Luk.
6:55PM We have a winner. Thomas Haas takes the Dessert Duel trophy.
9:00PM: 16 hours and counting. It’s wine time!
6:25AM: The Vancouver Home + Design Show continues! Today starts with an in-studio at Citytv, followed by another big line-up of media appointments. Let the mayhem begin.
6:40AM: My favourite beauty product and secret weapon, Make Up For Ever Full Coverage concealer. Dark circles be gone!
6:55AM Today is all about comfort – cue my favourite chambray shirt and comfy scarf (worn with black skinnies and knee-high boots, naturally).
7:30AM: On set at Breakfast Television. Janette Ewen is doing double duty – today’s she’s talking all things fashion and style with Jody Vance.
9:15AM: Quick stop at home for a conference call and to peruse today’s VHDS coverage in The Vancouver Sun. Three full-colour pages – I’m a happy girl.
12:25PM: Picked up HGTV superstar Bryan Baeumler and we’re ready to roll at the Global TV studios.
3:00PM: Bryan talking to fans while I handle crowd control. Everyone’s got a renovation question!
3:30PM: Break time for Bryan. I’m briefing Janette on her next media segment – this time on FMA Weekly with Natalie Langston.
8:00PM: Wrapping up the first of three autograph sessions for Jillian Harris at VHDS. She’s a gem!
11:30PM: Home time. Two more days to go, but the majority of the media work is done – and I’m exhausted!
