Top 5 Makeup Tips for A-List Interns By: Gary Wong

Intern Beauty Advice

As we all know, leaving a great impression is vital to any young intern navigating the real world. In a world of competition, clothes matter. Shoes matter. Hair matters. A fresh face with clean, simple makeup? You guessed it, it matters. Take a look at our top five beauty tips that are sure to make you unforgettable. 1. Good skincare. Removing your makeup daily and addressing skin concerns keeps your face happy and healthy. 2. Think simple. Neutral colors, clean lines, and fresh finishes are appropriate for all settings.

3. In a rush? Lips, cheeks, mascara, and a clean under-eye are the bare minimum to get you through the morning until you can touch up on your lunch break. 4. Primers for your face and eyes will keep shine away, give you a polished look, and, most importantly, keep your makeup in place all day. 5. Choosing the right foundation for your skin type and tone will keep you looking fresh, gorgeous, and naturally flawless.

Glitter Nail Art

A DIY guide to this season’s pretty polish trend By: Ashley Cook

Nail art is a hot trend both on and off the runway, but trips to the salon and special kits can be expensive. Luckily, there’s an easy and inexpensive DIY alternative!

16. nail trend

Supplies: A base coat, nail polish in the color of your choice, fine glitter (we bought ours at Michael’s for $1!), and a topcoat.

Step 1: Start with clean nails and a paper

towel under your hands to contain the mess. Apply the base coat to help polish last longer and make it easier to remove.

Step 2: On one hand, paint a single coat of nail polish—enough so it isn’t opaque, but not so much that it’s goopy either. Step 3: On the same hand, paint a second coat of polish. While the polish is still wet, pour the glitter on top and gently pat into place. Repeat on each nail until the desired look is achieved. Step 4: Repeat Steps 2 & 3 on your other


Step 5: To help your glittertastic look last its longest, be sure to apply a topcoat only on the top half of your nail to avoid brushing off the glitter.

Tips for

surviving a pricey internship on limited funds

Landing your dream internship is an amazing accomplishment, but it can come with a hefty price tag. Thankfully, whether you’re in New York, LA or Miami, there are plenty of ways to budget your money and still have the time of your life. 1. Don’t spend money you don’t have. Be conscious of the money in your bank account and don’t splurge on things you don’t need. 2. Anticipate how much necessities will cost. Break down your monthly expenses (i.e. rent, utilities, food) so that you’ll know how much you can spend on entertainment. 3. Look for deals and free activities. Consider Groupon and Living events in your city, like concerts and museums. 4. Eat smart. Try not to eat out, but if you do, be sure to save your leftovers. And if you’re lucky enough to have a kitchen, USE IT! Buying food at the grocery store will keep your fridge stocked longer and save you money in the end. 5. Shop sample sales and thrift stores. We aren’t saying you shouldn’t shop, but do yourself a favor and shop from the sale racks. Sample sales offer big designer pieces at a low price, and local thrift shops have a great selection of vintage clothes.

Jewelry-maker Jenna Jackson sparkles in Tallahassee By: Kelsey O’Brian

At age 12, Jenna Jackson began making jewelry. It started one weekend when she visited a small bead shop with her mom and sister, where they learned the basics of jewelry-making. From that moment on, Jenna was hooked. later, she owns her very own Eight years late jewelry company, aptly named Just Jems Beading Company. Though her passion for jewelry was undeniable from an early age, she would have never guessed that she would one day be the owner of a business. “Just Jems was never something I set out to do,” she said. “It was an opportunity that presented itself, and I took it!” Now, it’s easy to spot students donning No Jenna’s jewelry on campus every day. Not long ago, Jenna was a freshman herself, and was faced with jewelry-making obstacles because of the size of her dorm. But in the summer of 2012, she got her big break.




“Everything is inspirational and beautiful” Jenna made Facebook and Instagram accounts to promote her business, and officially began crafting in Tallahassee. Her business took off; suddenly, she was making jewelry not only for Tallahassee customers, but for boutiques in Orlando and wedding parties as well. When asked where she finds inspiration for her pieces, Jenna responds like a true artist. “I think that’s what’s so cool about being creative and being artistic: everything is inspirational and beautiful, whether it’s colors I see together, or a style, or even a phrase I hear. If you have the ability to turn anything into something creative and inspiring, that’s a beautiful thing.”

Catwalk to Closet By: Madeline Smith

1. Plaid to the Bone: Calling all ex-Catholic school girls (or anyone that owns a checked throw blanket, really)! Time to break out those tartans of your yesteryear and channel the bad-gal runways of Stella McCartney and Givenchy in this standout trend. If you don’t have the wherewithal to go head-to-toe checked, Clueless-style, try tossing on a silky printed shirtdress or punk out all the wa way, sporting it with mixed-print sweaters and eccentric boots. 2. 40’s & 50’s Fits: It worked wonders for your grandma way back when, so you know this trend is a lasting classic. Take a minute to study her elegant vintage ways, because we’ve happened upon the modern Renaissance woman in tailoring and silhouette—Celine, Marc Jacobs, and Bottega Veneta did a striking job of showing us in their retro presentations—and decade essentials like fit ‘n’ flare dresses, menswear-inspired culottes, and super-structured jackets will be the perfect additions to your fall and winter wardrobes. Dig up some skirts of the pencil or skater variety and pair them with a bowling bag or chic waistbelt to mix your eras and glitz up your everyday looks. 3. Fur Sure: The fur faction delivered the most overwhelmingly fierce trend this fashion period. Through patchwork, patterns and manual stripes, the pelts in different arrangements, colors and cuts made for a most opulent display. So what if you can’t shell out stacks for Altuzarra and Fendi’s feel-good fuzzies? Go faux (cozy up to designer favorites without pissing PE PETA off) and sport the layers ‘o’ hair in any way you can—fur gilets on jackets on hats are just right, topped off with pendant necklaces and some barely-there tights.

Left with two options—eating ramen for dinner every night or going to rehab for graphic tee addiction—we’ve discovered the best way to satisfy the craving: a DIY graphic tee.

This graphic tee was inspired by Marc Jacobs’ “Parallel Lines” printed tee. You will need: · T-shirt · Fabric Paint · Masking Tape · Pencil · Brush · Ruler · Sheet of paper (placed inside the shirt to prevent paint from soaking through)

First, lay the T-shirt flat, and place a 12 inch strip of tape one inch below the collar. Using the ruler to measure the distance, place another 12 inch strip of tape parallel to the first strip of tape. Fold the T-shirt in half and crease the tape to mark the center.


Working from the center, grab your pencil and mark a dot on either side of your ruler. Stick strips of tape at the dots to make stripes, using the width of the ruler to measure the distance between them. Dab fabric paint into the gaps in the fabric with a brush.

After drying for 4 hours, peel off the tape to reveal your print, and voila! You have a one-of-a-kind graphic tee.

Man of Style

By: Jordan Dixon

Let’s face it: waking up for an 8 am lecture is a struggle. Getting up on time and dressing to the nines? Almost unheard of. That’s why fashionisto Johnathan Shuler is this issue’s Man of Style. On the topic of his own personal style, Johnathan says he’s attracted to pieces that are “bold, and even a little outside the box.” Mixing patterns, a fashion challenge, cannot always be pulled off well. Johnathan is the exception; he expertly combines his spotted cap with a tribal print backpack, and adds a pair of bright orange chinos for an appealing pop of color. His round sunnies pull the outfit together. Between his tangerine pants and his sublime mixture of patterns, it’s obvious that Johnathan knows how to make a statement. His personal flare shines through even as he plays it cool with minimal accessories. An oversized gold watch and sporty lace-up kicks make his ensemble school appropriate. When asked about his style inspiration, Johnathan says that he takes advice from his favorite magazine, GQ. He’s also influenced by runway shows, where bold prints from different designers encourage him to incorporate eclectic patterns into his everyday style.
