Since starting my co op, I have found many exciting new places in Philadelphia. By working for Nicole Miller, I have not only gained better insight into the fashion industry, but I have a better appreciation for my city and the local businesses. Although I do not run errands all the time, I think it is important to make the best of the situation because you never know the new discoveries you may find.
Life is Better Coated in Powdered Sugar
Whether it is going to Starbucks for the morning coffee run or making hundreds of copies for the office, almost every intern will experience the mundane side of the fashion industry. At Nicole Miller Philadelphia, I am lucky enough to be treated as an integral part of the company; however, when I am assigned these particular tasks I rather enjoy them. Recently, it has been very hectic in the office, so I am the person who is designated to run errands. Surprisingly enough, I look forward to this time! It gives me a chance to leave the office, catch some fresh air, and reflect on my day.
Last week, I had to walk from The Bellevue (located at 15th and Walnut) to 20th and Pine to pick up a gift for a coworker. To my surprise, this gift was cupcakes from the Philly cupcakery, Pamcakes! After entering the shop and smelling the aroma of freshly baked goods, I indulged myself in a pumpkin chip cupcake. It was delicious and perfect for the fall weather! The amount of chocolate chips to pumpkin ratio was perfect. Although Pamcackes has only been around for about two years, I am surprised I had never heard of it. If it weren’t for my daily errands as an intern, I would have never found my new favorite place! For anyone who likes sweets as much as I do, I highly recommend going! You won’t regret it.
