Are you Pretty Powerful? It’s a giveaway baby!Posted: October 19, 2011
I had the delightful honor of being asked to choose someone I feel is Pretty Powerful and tell all you peeps about them.This is all in support of the Pretty Powerful Campaign Bobbi Brown Cosmetics has going on right now. Being “Pretty Powerful” doesn’t mean one thing in particular. It can mean you’re a confident, independent person, reliable, helpful, anything really. And the most important part is you can be this amazing person with or without make-up. We all looove make-up, and it adds to all of these things, but it’s not what really makes someone who they are. I know, I know, I’m a little cheese ball, but it’s so true!
I decided to choose Amanda O’Brien as my Pretty Powerful person. For those of you who don’t know, she’s kind of a big deal in the Portland area. Her full time job is as VP of Marketing at Hall Internet Marketing where she gets to be a self proclaimed internet geek. She has also been organizing Maine’s Social Media Breakfast events for 2 years. These are monthly breakfasts where lots of local business owners, twitterers, and social media users come to hear Amanda and other speakers chat about social media and also to network. This summer The Portland Press Herald also named her one of the 40 under 40 honorees. Yay Amanda! This pretty much says, hey, you’re doing a lot within your own career and for the greater good of your industry. You can see she’s a very busy girl and is obviously contributing a lot to our city and fellow social mediaers. Career stuff aside Amanda is a super great person. Recently she’s had to deal with an adorable dog who has cancer and lost a leg. As a dog lover I’m not sure how I would handle that, but she always seems to be optimistic and there to support her puppy.
Since I love fashion, I have to mention that anytime I see her she always looks cute. Pearl necklaces, button down shirts, very classic. But the real reason I chose her was her influence and personality. So, lucky lady. Not only does she get to read about how awesome she is, but she also gets a Pretty Powerful Make Up Palette!
