Don’t Hack Off an Older Guy with Money in his Pocket

I’m not rich, but I have disposable income. I drive a 300-horsepower sport sedan with an 80-gig touch-screen control system. I have a smartphone, smart TV, 35mm SLR digital camera and three computers, and I know how to use them. I wear Oakley glasses, own two high-end bicycles, volunteer in my community and vote independently. Read More

Back to School. Back to Normal?

In a sea of back-to-school promotions, with kids dancing and over the moon to get new clothes and school supplies, there’s one spot that didn’t particularly stand out.

Until about 15 seconds in. Read More

Beyond #WomenInSports

Sports have been a part of my entire life. I’m fairly certain I was shooting hoops before I could walk. I often played a pickup game of Wiffle Ball every day after school with neighborhood friends. I carried that love of sports and transformed it into running as an adult. Read More

The Branding of Stranger Things

I recently had the opportunity to binge-watch Season 3 of Stranger Things on Netflix and spoiler alert – it doesn’t disappoint. (Note: I will keep this spoiler-free in case you haven’t had the chance to get through the full season yet.) But I would like to discuss the branding and product placement that was rampant throughout the show. Read More

Brands Are Winning Big Because Kids Are Shopping Small

When I was a kid, I used to love playing grocery store. My siblings and I would tape up old cereal boxes, wash out Tide bottles and anxiously wait until an egg carton was empty so we could collect it. Now, as a 20-year-old intern and a big sister of three little girls under the age of 10, I get to see a whole new generation of children get hooked on playing grocery store. Only this time, Read More

Maybe You Should Sleep On It

If you’ve ever had a dream (most of us), you know they can
be fun, interesting and wildly bizarre. For instance, my last dream had the lush setting of the Ritz Carlton where I was stuck in a glass elevator with Michael Keaton and Ryan Reynolds, all of us wearing bright green St. Patrick’s Day outfits and holding French bulldogs. Before you can judge me, I’m sure you’ve had weirder dreams than that. Read More

It’s Overtime and You’ve Got One Commercial Break

Last night was the culmination of the 2018 – 2019 NCAA Men’s Basketball season with the University of Virginia defeating Texas Tech University in an instant-classic championship game of what we all effectively call March Madness. Of course, advertisers typically work to leverage March Madness for their special offers, deals and promotions. The king of this year’s tournament, in my opinion, is Buffalo Wild Wings. Read More

A Blog is a Blog is a Blog … or is it?

The short answer:

This is a blog post, not a blog. Blogs are a collection of
blog posts, which can be any length. Even three sentences.

The long answer:

There seem to be a big misconception regarding blogs, one which I try and correct at every given chance. A blog is an online diary or publication. While writing this piece, I know that it will be posted to Bozell’s blog. This piece, however, isn’t a blog, Read More

Timid Women, DOVE Chocolate says “No chocolate for you!”

I have seen DOVE Chocolates’s new commercial, which implies that three guys are buying gifts at the same time and place for the same woman. The spot then cuts to said woman eating DOVE Chocolate. What I did not comprehend was that this is DOVE’s way of celebrating “bold” women.
As a woman who some have accused of being bold, Read More
