Tivoli – Walt Disney’s Inspiration

Tivoli is a magical oasis in the middle of Copenhagen, Denmark filled with themed rides, ethnic foods, concert halls, and wondrous gardens. Does any of this sound familiar? Think Disney World…! In fact, I believe Walt Disney visited Tivoli as a kid. One can imagine this is where he gained inspiration for Disney parks!

My Danish friend, Sisse, took us exploring through Tivoli one afternoon where we ate Bosnian food and relaxed on the lawns. Thinking back… I can still picture the vibrant colors and intricate decor, while imagining what it would be like as a kid to visit this park!

After this trip, I immediately searched for internships at Disney… a place where inspiration and magic thrive. From a Public Relations + Marketing perspective, research and appropriate communication are imperative to attract target audiences. A practitioner needs to understand how audiences are persuaded to visit Disney, while discovering what attractions become popular and why. I can imagine the amount of planning, organizing, and scheduling that occurs to achieve measurable and acceptable success rates. These meticulous campaigns get my PR heart racing!

Have you been to Tivoli? Do you ever inspire to work at Disney where “Dreams are Made Of”?

Holiday Shipping Extravaganza

Hello all! It is the weekend before Christmas! Is everyone preparing for the holidays?! What are your holiday traditions? My family always bakes lots of apple crisps and sugar cookies, open presents at my Grandma’s on Christmas Eve and decorate the tree until you cannot see anymore green!!! If you want, I will upload a picture of it! Let me know 🙂

But anyways today I wanted to show you two of the LUSH shipping campaigns that I received over email, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Here they are:

  • The post to the left is on Instagram. As you can tell, it is a pun to a movie (or a few several films). Does anyone know?! Well I heard this most recentelly in The Campaign movie with Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis. How many of y’all have seen that movie? It is a raunchy comedy. But anyways, I really liked this one because it makes you smile and laugh a little inside!
  • The next post to the right was posted to Facebook. I am sure everyone knows where this originated from…. Hit me baby one more time! If the other one did not make you laugh, then this one will probably make you laugh more!

So these are really cool and unique ways to communicate that shipping needs to happen in a timely manner around Christmas time!!!!! Especially when we are this close to the holidays. Can you all think of any fun shipping puns?

And for even more laughs and extreme cuteness, I found these two monsters in my bed a couple of days ago! Meoooowy Christmas!!
