The Adventures of Gemma


So the other day, Zoya Nail Polish posted on facebook and twitter that it was 'Bring your Zoya Nail Polish to Work' day. I decided to participate, and document Gemma's day at the office (and the aftermath) Check it out! :)

To start off her day with me at work, Gemma decided to help out. Here Gemma is totally helping me out by doing some stapling.


She helped cut some stuff up for me too.



She DID have some issues with the tape though.



Not cool, Gemma, not cool.



She's a great little note-taker, too.



Lunch time! Gemma is totally ready to go outside in the Vegas sun!!



On the way to lunch, Gemma took over my car radio and made me listen to her favorite song. (Yeah.... NKOTB)



After lunch, Gemma wanted to try her hand at photographing some nail polish swatches!



Gemma totally forgot her facial waxing appoint this week. What's a polish to do?!



Gemma decided to go for a walk while holding hands with her 'buddy' Domo on her break.



She took it off-road when nature decided to 'call'.



Next, Gemma decided to help me out with some typing that needed to get done.



Too bad she stopped a few keystrokes in because she was hungry...



Gemma decided to show me her skincare regimen...she definitely understands that moisturizing is key.



Now she's just showing off. 'Look! no hands!'



Come on in, the water's fine!



Gemma really wanted to do some nail art on me...



Bedtime!! All the work and excitement wore Gemma out! Goodnight!!



I hope you enjoyed the 'Adventures of Gemma' as much as I did!! :)

  23. Very creative and adorable. My favorites were Gemma drinking your Pepsi, her mustache, & her buddy Domo XD

    ReplyDelete
  24. I wouldn't allow even my favorite polish to get away with stealing my Pepsi Throwback. That's an acetoneing offense.

  25. I followed Gemma's exploits that whole day on Twitter. Melissa, you're a hoot ;-) I figured this post could get away with a cornball comment...

  54. Great post! I?m just starting out in community management/marketing media and trying to learn how to do it well - resources like this article are incredibly helpful. As our company is based in the US, it?s all a bit new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how to show your own genuine enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in that case. holiday forum new year 2012
