A Day in the Life — Sarah Meyer
Have you ever wondered what a day in life is like for the Revolution PR team? We’re taking you along for the ride one team member at a time. First up, Sarah Meyer. Account executive and New Orleans native, obsessed with good food, athleisure clothing and home décor.
5:00am – My alarm goes off and I roll around in bed for 5 minutes wondering if I really care about working out anymore. Eventually, I remember that I always feel better when I do, so I get up, get dressed and head out the door for a 5:30am workout. Weight lighting is my favorite way to exercise and what you’ll find me doing 4-5 days a week.
Then, it’s time to shower and get dressed for the day. I am adamant about my skincare routine because it feels like a mini spa treatment to start and end your day.☺ My favorite tip I’ve learned is to not wash your face in the morning to preserve the natural oils that build up while you sleep. I just splash some warm water on my face and then layer on the products. A few of my favorites right now are Derma-e’s Vitamin C Serum, Andalou Naturals Daily Defense Lotion, MyChelle Sun Shield Liquid with SPF 50 and Derma-e’s Hydrating Eye Cream.
7:30am- My daily smoothie. I start most days with a giant smoothie because it’s easy to take on the go. I follow Kelly LeVeque’s Fab4 Smoothie guidelines and it keeps me fueled till lunch! Here’s my favorite smoothie recipe right now.
Sarah’s Favorite Chocolate Smoothie
– Small handful of ice
– 1/3 a frozen banana
– 1 scoop of Paleo Pro’s chocolate protein powder
– 1 cup Califia Farms Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
– 1 TBSP Georgia Grinders almond butter
– ½ TBSP bee pollen
– ½ TBSP maca powder
– 1/8 tsp pink sea salt
– 1TBSP Cacao powder
– A giant handful of organicgirl spinach
8:15am- I start my workday. As an account executive, I shift back and forth between supporting the account lead with certain clients and taking the leadership roll with other clients. We are truly a team at Revolution though, so everyone jumps in to help wherever they can be of value! A typical day consists of emails, meetings, working with some of my favorite influencers (like Kale in the Clouds and Peach in Seattle!), media outreach and sometimes impromptu photoshoots like this one below!
This was a photo we took of a team lunch using our client, organicgirl’s new Protein greens. Delish!
12:00pm- Speaking of lunch… we all know it’s the best part of the day. We try to have lunch together as a team once a week. Sometimes we treat it as a meeting and sometimes we gossip about our favorite beauty products and new restaurant finds☺
Side note: Lunch is always followed by a few squares of Endangered Species 88% dark chocolate.
3:00pm- In the afternoon, I try to remember to go for a walk and switch up my surroundings. Sometimes I’ll take my laptop over to the conference room table or use the standing desk in our office to switch things up. It really helps with that afternoon crash. Snacks also help.☺ We love having nut butters like Nutzo’s Power Fuel, carrots and apples to keep us fueled throughout the day.
5:00pm- Unwinding after work is really important to me. I don’t like carrying the little stresses of the work day into the evening and find that I sleep better when I take the time to really relax. I typically come home and put on a movie while I cook dinner. I’m loving the recipes from Cherry Bombe cookbook right now!
