jaye The front: memo from mike m e  m  o  r a n d  u  m To:  The Smart, Stylish and Sophisticated JAYE Readers From: Michael Jones, JAYE Editor-in-Chief Date:  February 2011 Subject:  Fall In Love with Fashion It’s always a treat when my Fashion Director Julianna sends in her monthly “Fashion Diary” column. She’s got a knack for sharing her insider experiences harvested from semesters as an intern, and most recently in the New York City trenches as a stylist’s assistant.   This month, Julianna’s know-how is on dynamic display as she shares her tips on how to shop, style and get inspired like a fashion editor. As cliché as it sounds, there are certain nuances in the sartorial world that make fashion fabulously fun and getting dressed enormously exciting. I’m certain you’ll be inspired by some of her tips—you’ll find ‘em on p. 32.   Speaking of inspiration, we’ve got a lot of it in our Shopper section, which flaunts spring’s hottest accessories driven by some of the season’s biggest trends. Whether you’re a low-key southern belle, a soft-pedal minimalist or a attention-grabber with an affinity for brights, the “Trend Watch” pages have an array of bags, shoes and jewelry perfect for you. And if you’re hankering for a big-picture bulletin of what’s in store as the snow melts away and the temps start to creep above freezing (thank goodness!), Fashion Scoop and Cheat Sheet have the news and notes you need to tide you over until next month’s supersized fashion issue. February is the month of love, and as my staff and I started planning this issue last November, the recurring question was: Where are all of the good guys hiding? If you read our “Looking for Love” relationship report on p. 60, you may discover your “guy” could be lurking behind the computer screen. We spend so much time

behind the PC or twiddling away on our smartphones, that if you think about it, finding love in the digital domain (territory we feel more than comfortable traversing) is a palpable evolution in how we communicate with the male species.   Sheena Sampson knows a thing or two about evolving and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have her on our cover. The Dallas native was first introduced to you in our August 2008 issue, and as you’ll find out on p. 86, the dropdead gorgeous free spirit (with a majestic voice to boot) has grown in so many areas since we last spoke with her over two years ago.   E-mail me at jayemagmike@gmail.com and let me know what you think of Sheena and how you plan to wear spring’s hottest accessories. And while you’re at it, follow the official JAYE Twitter account @JAYEmagazine and “like” us on Facebook. In the meantime, have a ball reading the issue.

speak your mind! Whether you’re complimenting us, or calling us out, we want your feedback! We reply to all of your notes, so let us know what you think!

JAYE IN THE KNOW Follow the Money!

Careers are always in the front of our mind and in as the economy powers back up it’s good to know which industries are booming. Jobs in the field of education, engineering, medicine and finance are all expected to experience extreme growth in the next decade. Which one’s right for you? By Courtney Ward The Job: Teacher Where: New York, California, Illinois Why: Usually becoming a teacher is not about the money but a good paycheck never hurts. The national average salary for a teacher is $47,750. The NassauSuffolk district in New York offers the highest pay for elementary, middle and high school teachers, averaging at just over $78,000 a year. California falls in second place with an elementary and middle school average of over $68,000. Illinois takes second place for high school only where $70,000 is the average. Special Education teachers make the most in California at over $83,000, followed by Michigan at almost $74,000. Find out more: U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics: Occupational Outlook Handbook The Job: Computer Engineer Where: California, New York, Oregon, Washington, South Carolina Why: California is a hub of computer engineering jobs thanks to Silicon Valley and more than 25 of the Fortune 1000 corporations are based in the Golden State waiting for you. If you’re looking to step away from the norm, then New York is the place to go. With a plethora of companies to choose from, explore areas such as telecommunications services, computer systems design and financial information technologies. Oregon is home to Intel Corporation; Washington state is the headquarters of Microsoft and Amazon.com and has the highest tech job growth of any of state according to the

American Elections Association. South Carolina’s Research Triangle houses IBM and Cisco among many others over a 7,000 acre technology stretch. Find out more: American Electronics Association The Job: Medical Assistant Where: California, Massachusetts, Washington D.C, Alaska Why: California has the capacity to employ more medical assistants simply because they have 352 hospitals­ — more than any other state. They also pay more, about $43,000 a year. In Massachusetts, you’ll make about $41,000 serving the state with the highest concentration of colleges and universities in its capital city Boston. D.C. medical assistants average about $38,000 a year, while Alaska, even in the cold, offers $35,000. Find out more: State Health Facts, U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics: Occupational Outlook Handbook The Job: Financial Adviser or Analyst Where: New York, California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Oregon Why: People and businesses are monitoring their investments more than ever now, and you should benefit from their caution. Salaries range from $43,000 to $139,000 with the median making at least $73,000 per year. The average financial connoisseur in New York makes over $107,000 on Wall Street and throughout the city. Companies like General Electric and Travelers will pay you at $95,000 in

Connecticut to manage their investments. Massachusetts business will pay you $93,000 to come to work in four feet of snow while Oregon offers a $91,000 average. These are all before that big yearly bonus. Find out more: CNN Money.com, U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics: Occupational Outlook Handbook The Job: Small Business Owner Where: South Dakota, Nevada, Texas, Florida, Virginia Why: If you want to go against the grain and start your own business there are still places that are willing to facilitate your goals. Here you’ll want to consider state income and corporate tax rates as well as crime. In South Dakota you have a zero percent personal and corporate income tax however these states do tax you for using the Internet. Nevada and Texas offer the same luxury however the crime rate is very high for both states. In the East, Florida’s high crime rate is combated by a zero percent personal income tax even though corporate income tax hovers at five percent. Virginia has low crime and sticks to national averages with all taxes around six percent. Find out more: The Street Financial News

Tivo Titan: Modern Family The family that has us tuned in every week

the agenda: Your Monthly culture To-Do List See Drive Angry

■ Just when you were about the give up on the family-comedy genre, Modern Family cropped up on the scene last fall. This comedy has something those others didn’t—hilarity.   The 30-minute mockumentary-style sitcom is about Jay Pritchett (Ed O’Neil) and his adult kids Claire (Julie Bowen) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson). Jay’s on his second marriage, adjusting to life with the feisty Gloria (Sofia Vergara) and his very mature stepson Manny (Rico Rodriguez). Claire, a stay-at-home mom, is married to man-child Phil (Ty Burrell) who would rather play “cool dad” with their three children than be the bad guy by disciplining them. Mitchell, a straightlaced lawyer, and his boyfriend Cameron (Eric Stonestreet), who has a flair for the

dramatic, are embarking on parenthood after adopting their daughter Lilly from Vietnam.   The beauty of Modern Family is how well it reflects the life of so many families by supplementing situations so many people experience, like locking their baby in the car with the keys, with characters who have distinct personalities instead of being based on archetypes. Sure, Claire’s a stay-at-home mom, but all of her lines and emotions aren’t linked to that title.   Just like families who gather in front of the TV every Wedneday night to see the newest episode of the show, this family is connected by love. That, along with 30 minutes of laugh-out-loud comedy, is enough to keep us watching.  – Brianti Downing

jaye in the know: sex/relationships What exactly is flirting?   Flirting is a science. Biology suggests that flirting is a basic instinct. Flirting can be found at the root of all sexual relationships. The potential to flirt   Flirting is an art. Think about everything that goes into it. It is a dance nothing short of movement, technique and expressions.   Flirting is a means to an end. Some people do it for leisure. Some do it to seek companionship. Others just need a boost to his or her ego or self-esteem.   By definition, flirting is a form of social interaction where one indicates his or her sexual interest in another person without crossing the boundary of normal, everyday human interaction.

Dexter D., 21, Stony Brook University, Psychology

Why this cute guy is is single: “I don’t date just to date. I only pursue women who I can see myself with longterm. I’m looking for someone with marriage potential. I’m all about quality.” What makes Dexter different from other guys: “I’m old-fashioned. I pride myself on being gentlemen. With me, a woman will always be treated like a princess.” What turns him on: “Conversation. Physical attraction only gets you so far. I need to be engaged.” His ideal date: I don’t see why people don’t like dinner and a movie anymore. It’s so simple that’s it great. Food and conversation at dinner. Who doesn’t like a good movie?

What Type of Flirt Are You?

A 2010 study published in Communication Quarterly surveyed more than 5,000 adults and identified five flirting styles. Read on to see what type of flirt are you, and what it says about your relationships?

Physical: Relationships develop quickly for these types.

Although emotional connection runs high, the relationship focuses more on sex. Traditional: These types believe in gender roles. Men make the first move and do the chasing. Men that are traditional take longer to make a move. Don’t be surprised if a traditional flirt is introverted. Polite: Relationships are more meaningful for polite types. They focus on manners and nonsexual communication. Like traditional types, they are hesitant to approach potential mates and aren’t flattered by flirting. Sincere: The most popular of the types, sincere flirts revere emotional connections highly. Don’t worry. There’s plenty of sexual chemistry. Playful: The most uncommon of the types, playful flirts have little to no interest in long-term, meaningful relationships. Flirting for these types are seen as recreational and a means to boost self-esteem. – Talia Cadet There’s no going dutch with Dexter—he’ll foot the bill!

Welcome to Hampton University located in Hampton, VA. I’m Brittney Fennell and I’ll be your tour guide! Ay, Ay Captain: Our campus mascot is the pirate. We’ve got spirit, yes we do: Our school colors are blue and white. Notable Alums: Famous graduates of HU include Booker T. Washington, who founded Tuskegee University; Alberta Williams King, MLK Jr’s mom; former ESSENCE magazine editor Angela Burt-Murray; and comedienne Wanda Sykes. Special buildings: Robert C.

which has 24 flags that represent the countries of currently enrolled students; and the waterfront. Why I love HU: Hampton University is a historically black and private institution (HBCU) and is famous for providing students with an education for life, instilling professionalism in its students, and being on the forefront in science, engineering, business, nursing and journalism. The students are also known for being intelligent, talented, trendsetting and creative individuals.

ith a focus on new and aspiring professionals, The Intangibles are 10 things that the classroom couldn’t teach you about getting and keeping the career you love.  Define your brand. Before you start sifting through job openings, outline the skills they you have and how you can use them effectively. To identify what sets you apart from the rest, sit down and think of what you want to accomplish in life and then determine what steps you need to take to achieve those goals. Learning the market that you are targeting is also an integral part of defining and developing your brand.  Exercise discretion. Competition is steep, and

Jeremy Clark, a friend of mine and defensive end for the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles, says, “Stay positive and take care of the small things. The big things will take care of themselves.”  Go get your happiness. Success doesn’t just happen. There are hours of preparation (and sometimes perspiration) involved in getting to the first of your ultimate goals for even the smallest of “overnight” sensations. People appreciate the drive of a go-getter and hard work does pays off.  Dress the part. You only get one shot to make a lasting impression. Make sure you a dress for success and represent the position that you are seeking. Many potential employers observe what you have on and

While school covers the technical ins and outs, they don’t always confront the life skills you need to succeed in your professional life.

It’s hard to not share an idea with your roomie, but remember that everyone doesn’t have your best interests in mind.  Grab a dose of glee. There will be things at the office that irk us. Fix your mindset and personally acknowledge what’s bothering you, so you can extinguish the anxiety of the project and move forward.

make snap judgments about you based on attire, hair and overall attitude. If you’re applying for a job at a law firm, don’t come in your ripped jeans and flip-flops. The employer will think you are not serious about your future with their business.  Know when to fire yourself. When you feel like you aren’t benefitting from a posi-

tion or project, it’s know it is OK to remove yourself. Your superiors and and colleagues will respect you for leaving something that you’re not passionate about more than they will if you stick around just to be relevant.  Honesty is the best policy. “If you always tell the truth, you never forget what you said,” the saying goes, and it holds true for budding professionals. If you always state your intentions and never lie to make others look bad, people will remember you as a truthful person. Being known for honesty will take you far in your career.  Sometimes it’s not what, but who you know. Networking gives you tools, as well as a platform to meet other people and attain new facets of business that you never thought about going into. Cherish professional relationships and cultivate fledgling ones so you can access your Roledex of contacts when necessary.  Know your stuff. Remember when going into an interview or a meeting, you should know what’s going on. It’s the easiest way to make sure that your best foot is put forward

because as long as you know the most on the topic at hand, you are considered the expert. Stand Out. You are as powerful as you believe you are. Make sure you can express yourself and make a mark everyone can see. In most career fields women are the minority, so there needs to be a way to turn your confidence into power. If you know that you have the capability to perform a job function, do it to the best of your ability and don’t let anyone downplay your role.

Confessions of a Fashion Editor Scarves as belts? Blazers from the boy’s department? These are just a couple of tuckedaway tricks our Fashion Director Julianna Hamett uses to get the most out of her style

A scarf $235, Nini Ong; barneys.com.

s editors, we’re constantly asked: What inspires you? What are the can’t-live-without items in your closet? What are your style secrets? So far my styling adventures have taught me so many tricks of the trade and have helped to evolve my style. I am dying to share all of my secrets so can dress like an editor every day. This month, I challenge you to use all of my tips to make February all about being confident and having fun with fashion! Shop like an editor: Look to unconventional places for your next shopping excursion. I’m always in vintage and consignment stores when I’m hunting for pieces to amp up my wardrobe; and in the men’s or boy’s departments of your favorite stores, you’ll find oversized tees and sweaters—they are perfectly baggy! (Rachel Bilson has been known for rocking Gap kids from time to time.)

Style like an editor:

When I’m not surveying the market for the perfect maxi skirts or high-wattage accessories—which are huge trends for spring, by the way—I’m a stylist’s assistant. On location, I’m always picking up little tricks that I use when styling others and myself. One of my favorites? Using a scarf as a belt. Tie it around the waist and tie in a big bow in the back for a sweet yet completely unexpected look. I also love to layer a long-sleeved tee under a strapless dress or pile on pretty rhinestone necklaces with a vintage band tee for an amazing contrast. Get Inspired like an editor: I wanted to share a few of my personal items from my closet to get you inspired like I do when looking at images of other editors. For example, my personal favorite editor icon: Anna Dello Russo.   I find the most personal pieces and the pieces most special to me are my accessories. I love collecting jewelry and shoes. Here’s a peek inside a portion of my collection.   Happy styling!

Now Behold the Lam

High-end fashion designer Derek Lam will be showcasing a brand new collection exclusively for eBay By Carissa Chesanek Wishing you could afford those high-priced designer labels? Well, thanks to eBay you can now afford some top-notch designer names! Derek Lam plans to partner up with the online auction and shopping site to introduce an original collection to be exclusively sold and revealed during this month’s New York Fashion Week. Viewers of eBay will then be able to vote for their favorite items online after the collection has been presented. Lam and eBay will then use the votes to determine the final collection.   “Having a direct and immediate dialogue with the online audience is what makes

fashion exciting and relevant in this moment,” Derek Lam says. “eBay’s technology offers me a unique and innovative opportunity to reach new and existing customers directly, and to create fashion they desire.”  Lam’s final collection will be available at fixed “accessible” prices. The price points are not known as of yet, but since Lam stated he would love to have a “diffusion line like TopShop,” the prices may be around what you would find there.   “We are thrilled that a fashion luminary like Derek recognizes the power of eBay as a platform to directly engage style-conscious

shoppers worldwide,” Miriam Lahage, the vice president and general manager of eBay Fashion, explains in a statement. “This collaboration underscores how eBay is leveraging technology to invent new ways to shop fashion and provide access to acclaimed designers at incredible value. Our global reach enables us to expand the velocity of trade in the fashion ecosystem—helping leading-edge designers, like Derek, as well as brands and retailers, market to a new audience.”   eBay Fashion is a virtual outlet that offers all of the hottest clothes and accessories online to a wide audience. The online shopping retailer offers discounts on all designer duds, leaving the customer happy with money left over.  Lam will be joining the other designers like Narciso Rodriquez that have designed collections for eBay. Having Derek Lam take part in this site will only add icing to the fashionable cake.

may not have been renewed for another season, but you can still get your Whitney fix by picking up a copy of her new book True Whit: Designing a Life of Style, Beauty, and Fun, which hits stores this month.   The 224-page book is full of advice—how to get rid of puffy eyes, what to wear on a date, tips on decorating a tiny apartment and pointers on hosting killer parties—to young women beginning their journey in the world and coming into their own. According to It Books (a division of HarperCollins), the book’s publisher, True Whit is a “conversational, fun, and candid guide for girls looking to start out [in life] with style.”   “Being a twenty-something can be a difficult phase,” Port says. “There are so many questions, and I wanted to write about my experiences for anyone who needs help navigating through life.” She continues, “it’s a really fun and fresh how-to-guide where I can share anecdotes that I’ve learned from both work and my personal life.” – Jill Scherr


designer spotlight: charlotte ronson With a standout spring collection and positive reviews from all spectrums of the industry, the London-bred designer continues her reign as one of the innovative forces in fashion  By Ashley Williams It seems as though a lot of designers have channeled the ‘90s these past few seasons, but not many have done it in a practical way. However, Charlotte Ronson managed to gather ready-to-wear looks from her spring 2011 inspiration, My So-Called Life, and unofficial muse, Angela Chase to produce a set chock-full of plaid shirts, sheer dresses, combat boots with scrunchy socks, and sweaters tied around the waist — outfits that were not only sensible, but adorable. “It’s about dressing down, but in a romantic way. It’s a little grungy, but feminine,” the 33-year-old designer says.   Ronson was born in London into a wealthy family of real-estate moguls and socialites, with a twin sister and brother. She attended New York University majoring in Studio Art, while interning at Rolling Stone, Harper’s Bazaar, and with designer

Cynthia Rowley. She began her designing stint after friends asked her to make pieces for them.   Ronson has had a strong influence on the fashion industry thus far with celebrities such as Beyoncé, Joy Bryant, Kate Moss, and Blake Lively all seen wearing her looks, quickly becoming a favorite in Hollywood. She’s also collaborated with Urban Outfitter’s creating Play by C. Ronson, sold exclusively in over 100 of their retail stores and online, plus the popular I [Heart] Ronson line, sold exclusively in JCPenney stores nationwide.   Ronson masterfully juxtaposes masculine influences — grunge, military, dark colors — and staples through with feminine touches. Her eye for what looks flattering on a woman, with the combined risk of pairing sheer dresses with combat boots keeps our interest and makes us wonder what’s next? ■

“It’s about dressing down, but in a romantic way. It’s a little grungy, but feminine.”

JAYE CHEAT SHEET Christopher Kane

<< Styling Tip: You can mix contrasting colors as long as you stick with the same or a similar fabric.

■ We were bitten by the love bug five months ago when we saw the spring collections, and found ourselves in a quandry trying to pick our favorites: Bright colors mixed and matched with reckless abandon; classic button-downs reintrerpreted for the modern woman; muted earth tones perfect for laid-back looks; and feminine staples for our inner girly-girl. The easy part is picking the looks of the season; the hard part is figuring out how to wear them. Not anymore! Reference the following pages for a tutorial in Spring Style 101.

Bright Separates

Eye-catching colors aren’t foreign to the runway, but the way they were colorblocked, mashed-up and effortlessly thrown together were a welcome change of pace. Stick to of-the-moment silhouettes to keep the look from veering into teenybopper territory.

Get the Look: Styling Tip: >> Hemlines are below the knee this season, a welcome change after seasons of tight miniskirts.

Balenciaga

Mixed Prints

After seasons of no-nonsense monochromatism and unfussy minimalism, it’s nice to see designers are back to jumbling patterns in inspiring ways to help you get the most of out of your wardrobe. The rules haven’t changed: Blend disparate prints with one unifying color — black is the common denominator in the Balenciaga look to the right.

Loose Button-Downs

Dries Van Noten

If you’re interested in a more subdued trend to test, the blush-colored separates that reigned on spring’s runways may be right up your fashion alley.

Get the Look: blazer $35, Old Navy; oldnavy.com.

top $138, American Rag; farfetch.com.

Styling Tip: >> Steer clear of skin-tight sheer tops and opt for roomier versions that can be layered.

belt $18, Rolfs; ebags.com. << Belting your jackets is an excellent way to show off your figure and add polish to your outfits.

Desert Tones

When color’s sparse, a premium is placed on craftmanship and construction, so make sure you’re investing in pieces that are made well and versatile enough to be worn with the pieces that are already mainstays in your closet. Another pointer: Don’t go overboard with jewelry; you want to look soft and clean, not severe and complicated.

There’s a way to balance femininity with sex appeal without emitting “skank signals,” as long as you remember a few rules: Stick to neutrals;  brightly colored lingerie-inspired garb is cheesy and the farthest thing from sultry.

3 Easy Steps to Preventing Type-Two Diabetes:

Diabetics routinely check their blood sugar to it’s at a reasonable level.

More people are getting diagnosed with type-two diabetes because of lifestyle choices — poor eating habits, dormant fitness strategies, etc. Below are some of the same steps that keep a diabetic healthy and help lower your risks of succumbing to the disease.

Diabetes: A Problem with the Plate

s Americans, we hear all the time that we are fat. We’re the fattest nation, we have the fattest kids—just one of our dinner plates could feed the world’s poor. What we may not hear is that in reality we’re giving ourselves diseases and taking years off our lives, all because we like getting full off of fast, fatty foods.   Diabetes diagnoses have skyrocketed over the past decade. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about one in 15 Americans have type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Over 26 percent of those people are under the age of 20.   The CDC says between 90 and 95 percent of all diabetes

cases are type 2. For people with type 1 diabetes, lifestyle has nothing to do with how the disease formed. However it is the difference between having difficult or moderate diabetes. For those who have type 2, lifestyle is a major contributing factor and maybe even the primary cause.   Type 1 diabetes is when the pancreas stops making insulin. Insulin is a natural chemical in the body that allows for the sugars you eat to enter cells and be used for energy. When the pancreas doesn’t produce insulin, sugar builds up in your blood and cells don’t get the energy they need to function. If the condition goes untreated several severe results can occur such

Exercise: This is a simple way to keeping your body in healthy and prevent a variety of diseases including diabetes. The problem is finding time. It’s there if you look for it. Take that chemistry book to the gym and walk or jog the treadmill while you read. If you like being outdoors, you’re already a step in the right direction. Make your playlist and go for a long walk. If you’re sweating and you feel your heart pumping, you’re doing it right.

Maintain a good weight: Steps one and two will almost certainly help you sustain a healthy weight. For some people, a little more of both is necessary but that’s OK because it will really pay off in the long run. For those girls that can eat an entire pizza and think nothing of it — consider your future and hit the gym. Diabetics are not always several pounds overweight even though that can be a cause.

Eat right: Consider quality over quantity. One cookie is enough — the whole box is too many. Eat your biggest meal at the start of the day so you have time to work it off doing normal activities even if you can’t fit in a work out (though you should try). If you know you’ll be sitting at a desk all day, then take all your meals a little lighter and eat small portions of healthy snacks.

looking for love? You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to date the guy next door anymore. As Kamie Pamulapati reports, you can date the guy in Israel from your living room in Georgia with the help of online dating sites and social networks

T

ired of unsuccessful, endless nights trolling the bar for dates? Why not troll the Internet instead. With social networks like Facebook and Twitter stealing the hearts of young (and not so young) singles everywhere and dating sites like eHarmony.com and Match.com sprouting up faster than ever, online dating has never been easier, or more popular. This $957-million industry is the third-largest revenue producer of paid content sites and is estimated to grow by 10 percent through 2013, according to Forrester Research Inc. â&#x20AC;&#x192; In fact, OnlineSchools.org, an informational website on learning and education compiled statistics on online dating and found that 40 million people in the U.S. are currently using online-dating websites. Combined with the fact that 20 million people visit at least one online-dating service a month, according to Online Dating Magazine, and you have one hell of an Internet infatuated community. >>


jaye digest: relationships   Once considered strictly for older generations, the Internet has now become a popular dating platform for all ages, ethnicities and sexual orientations. While there are general dating sites, such as eHarmony.com, Chemistry.com and Match.com, there are also more specific sites, like JDate for Jewish singles, Shaadi. com for Indians, Gay.com for the GLBT community and University Love Connection for college students, along with many more.   As the landscape of online dating is changing, so are its users.   While some college students still prefer face-to-face hookups to digital hookups, others are finding the Internet to be a more attractive alternative to traditional forms of dating.   As an online-dating profiler and former online-dating junkie, E. Foley, 31, is a huge supporter of digital dating. Foley first began her online quest for love as a student at Hamilton College, a private, independent, liberal arts college located in Clinton, New York, after becoming dissatisfied by the types of guys she was meeting.   Foley, who is admittedly attracted to “quiet, geeky types,” thought she would have better luck meeting them on the Internet rather than around her college campus.   “You don’t find guys like that out at parties or hanging out at bars. You find them where they live, which is on the Internet,” Foley says.   Although Foley was initially nervous to meet her online crush and begin a relationship offline, her first attempt at online dating was successful (they dated over a year and are still friends today) and she’s never looked back since. Surprisingly, in spite of Foley’s fondness for online dating services, she met her current boyfriend through her blog, rather than a dating site.   While Foley has had a few negative experiences with online dating in the

62  FEBRUARY 2011  jaye.com

past, like discovering her dream date was a homophobe or getting e-mails from guys just looking for a booty call, she says the positives greatly outweigh the negatives. For Foley and many other online daters, one of the greatest advantages of searching for love online is the amount of potential dates you have access to, which Foley believes isn’t possible to replicate in the real world.   Audrey Saint-Elie, a student at the University of Kentucky College of Law, likes Internet dating for its unique social atmosphere. As someone who is reserved when meeting strangers, Saint-Elie prefers Internet dating to face-to-face dating because it allows her to be more open.   “I’m a social butterfly when I have the computer screen to hide behind and shy in person, so finding someone on the Internet was perfect [for me],” the 25-yearold says.   Foley also shares the same sentiments. “I am a bit shy when I meet people in person, so it was much easier for me to chat someone up online and get to know them there before making the leap to real-life interaction,” Foley says.   However, unlike Foley, Saint-Elie has never tried online dating services. Instead, Saint-Elie met her fiancé, Trevor, through the social networking site Twitter. At the time, she’s wasn’t looking for online love, but she says “somehow it happened” and the two have been dating since the summer of 2009. With over 700 miles between them, Saint-Elie never thought that her tweets with Trevor would amount to anything more than harmless flirting. “I wasn’t even thinking about a relationship,” Saint-Elie says.   But as their Twitter relationship moved from insta-flirting on the microblogging locus to e-mails and phone calls, meeting in person was inevitable as were the feelings they were developing for one another.   “When I finally made the decision to go visit him for the first time, I was confident that we would have fun, if not start a

Just laugh, delete them and move on.”


relationship,” Saint-Elie says.   Although Saint-Elie’s online courtship was one of the best experiences of her life, she acknowledges that there is a certain amount of danger when it comes to Internet relationships.   “People sometimes have an Internet persona that is totally different from their real one,” Saint-Elie says. “You might not really know the person you’re talking to.”   For these reasons, Jessica Williams, 26, a counseling and educational psychology major at the University of Western Georgia was initially wary of starting a relationship with a guy she me on Twitter. “I was worried about [starting a relationship] with him because it’s hard enough to date normally and now I have distance and the online thing working against me,” said Williams in reference to her long-distance relationship with her current boyfriend, Deeds, whom she’s been dating since August 2009.   Williams says that the biggest disadvantage to online dating is the lack of reli-

sion if I want to date them,” said Marilu. “Plus, there’s so much room for lying and dishonesty.”   In regards to lying, Foley argues, “There will always be people who are dishonest no matter where or how you find them.”   Still, others like Zoë Blue, 30, who has had nothing but positive experiences with online dating, but has chosen to date in person rather than online.   Blue, who maintains www.winkwinkwink.wordpress.com, a blog about her dating experiences both on-screen and off-screen, tried online dating for three months, but stopped because she was having difficulty balancing her work life and online-dating life.   While Blue enjoyed the distance element of online dating, like not being “muddied by physical attraction,” she also missed those intangible elements of dating that can only be experienced in person, like “the way his hair smells or the crooked way he smiles.”

In person it’s a bit harder to hide [the truth] because you can see them, hear them, drink them in nonverbally.

  While Blue admits she enjoys meeting potential dates organically rather than digitally, she isn’t ruling out online dating for the future.   “I am not opposed to resuming online dating, but at this point, I am relishing dating beyond my profile,” Blue says. Whether you decide to date online, offline, or not at all, both Blue and others stress the importance of having fun and keeping an open mind.   Only then will you be able to have your fairy tale ending and the prince of your dreams, whether your romantic trappings are a glass slipper, computer or bar.   “Don’t focus on finding a relationship or marriage; focus on building a friendship with a man who intrigues you,” Blue says. ■

ModernDay Nomads >> Boxes line the walls of young Allison’s room. They are filled with her stuffed animals and toys. She has been in her new house for months, but the boxes remain unpacked as she knows another relocation is inevitable—and most likely sooner rather than later. Allison is only 9 years old, and she’s already a veteran on her fifth move, three of which have been international. To her it is just another room, another city and another change.

>> As birthdays come and go, new freedoms and opportunities suddenly become available to us. Change becomes a constant in our lives, and from a young age we learn to adapt as we move on. For high-school graduates, the chance to take hold of life’s reigns and choose an out-of-state college provides an exciting start to a life of variation. From dormroom shuffling to schedule changing, our consistency is shaken every six months. By the time our graduate school applications are finished, our futures have been rebuilt with ease, and we have long accepted and embraced that changes will occur.   But what about children like Allison who have already switched zip codes half a dozen times before reaching their teenage years? Children who do not have a choice in their childhood changes? Allison’s story is not unusual, nor is it that uncommon, with an estimated 10 million Americans undergoing a similar process as frequently as every four months to two years. No, these aren’t children of the nomadic Pygmies or the Bushmen, but of the United States’ armed forces. Caught in a wind of uncertainty, these kids, known as military brats, often float from country to country, never putting down roots and never

experiencing stability.   The term “military brat” has no relation to spoiled youngsters with abrasive demeanors, but stems from Third Culture Kids, a term coined back in the ‘70s by Ruth Hill Useem. Useem, an American sociolgist, studied children of enlisted parents and observed their highly mobile lifestyles and continual adjustments to culture shock. She noticed that these children blended the customs of their home life with that of their current culture to create a new third culture. Not much research has been done on military brats since Useem’s studies, but her findings still shed light on this silent subcategory of children who live

seamlessly around us.   The documentary, “BRATS: Our Journey Home,” is the first of its kind to offer a depiction of life growing up in the military, and still stands as one of the best voices of military kids and their struggles. Within its research, it found that the average brat attends 10 schools in roughly 12 years, and that some move more than 35 times in their childhood. These children have no hometowns and rarely have close relationships with extended families or friends. While some adult brats now relish in their childhood opportunity of world exploration, many look back and remember only stress and

Coupled with the worry of another foreboding move, military brats are often subject to an anxiety that we simply cannot understand, and one over which they have no choice.

“The only thing that separates me from my friends is I haven’t lived in the same house my whole life. I’ve just never had that camaraderie of where I lived.” – Cassi parents, were taught to be resilient and strong.   College student Cassi is just one of the millions who has lived her life as a brat. Born in Florida, she later moved to Arizona, Japan, Georgia, and Korea, before landing in her current home of Hawaii. She repeatedly lost her group of friends and was forced to be the new girl in school.   Yet when asked if she regrets her mobile childhood, she animatedly replied, “I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I feel like I’m a more rounded person—I’ve lived in other cultures and I’ve experienced things that are totally not the standard [in America].”   If children like Cassi seem content with their childhood, why is there a negative connotation often associated military brats? William Bridges, Ph.D., author and expert on relocation management has said that the continual unsettling lifestyle of these

66  FEBRUARY 2011  jaye.com

kids can cause an array of reactions including shock, anger, sadness, fear and confusion. While these emotions are common among all new movers, a brat must often face the added stress of a parent’s deployment, making them feel separated from their peers.   “The only thing that separates me from my friends is I haven’t lived in the same house my whole life,” says Cassi, “I’ve just never had that camaraderie of where I lived.”   Children tend to have the most difficulties with relocation because of the common feelings of lost friendships and reliability of their community. Teenagers especially must cope with massive material changes while dealing with insecurity and trust. Being the new girl in town is never easy, especially if it happens every few years. For military brats, familial relations prove to be the strongest friendships

they will have for the rest of their lives.   Cassi agrees.   “When my brother and I fought, our parents would remind me that every time we moved, he would be the one who would always there for me and would always be my friend,” she says. “It definitely helped to strengthen our bond.”   Having sibling camaraderie is one of the few factors that aid in a brat’s continual change. Finding a new social circle and new close friends is a headache for anyone, especially if you are not an outgoing individual. A study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology suggests that people who frequently moved as children were more likely to have lower life satisfaction and psychological well-being, and have more difficulties in making friends.   “Personally,” Cassi says, “I feel like I can relate to most people because I’ve

had to deal with so many things. In terms of being more open minded, I definitely feel like I’ve got an edge because I’ve been in places where you simply can’t be closed minded.”   Though she admits her childhood was not always easy, she does not regret any of the changes she was forced to make.   “I have friends from all over the world, I know nearly three other languages, and I have a much better understanding of what other places are like.” She adds with a laugh: “I’m okay with my childhood being different.”   While it is clear that military brats have childhoods filled with instability and uncertainty, no amount of studies or statistics can speculate the happiness these individuals will have in their futures. As we have all realized, situations are conditional and are not always as they appear. If these children who have faced continual adjustments can grow to be as content as Cassi and millions of others, then we can surely overcome the small changes we face in our own lives.   “I know it’s cliché, but everything happens for a reason,” she says. “Even if it seems like nothing will be worth it, try to embrace it and see what happens. If you give change a chance, it will always be for the better.” ■

From shockingly bright colors and subdued neutrals to printed dresses and skinny, ankle-length trousers, the collection is a breath of fresh air in an sartorial domain of embellished one-hit wonders that leave your wallets lighter and your closets fuller of waste you don’t need.   Dressing head to toe in a one designer is a defunct notion, which is all the more reason to arm yourself with wearable threads that work for your helter-skelter lifestyle, which brings us to another incentive to procuring a few MaxMara staples: The potential to mix and match them with trendier wares from mass brands like H&M and Zara or other luxury duds scored at sample sales or on eBay.   And while, you’ll probably dish out a little more cash on thr front end, you’ll find that these threads were well worth it. –Michael Jones

sheena the shining star

With a breathtaking voice, enchanting looks and a work ethic unheard of in our generation, Sheena Sampson is blazing a trail of success, beginning with the release of her first solo album—set to be released this year. But as JAYE Editor-in-Chief Michael Jones discovers, this pretty young thing hasn’t lost her southern charm along the way

n a culture that celebrates one-hit wonders, imprudent entertainment stars and twentysomethings that relish backstabbing over confidence-boosting, it’s hard to find women who obverse all that’s wrong with society.   Lucky for us, we’ve found one of them in Sheena Sampson, 26-year-old vocal genius and stunning beauty hailing from Dallas, who took time out her busy schedule—she’s in the throes of recording her first solo album, has another Luster’s Hair Care ad in the works; and is flexing her songwriting and vocal-arranging chops with other artists—to talk to us about what inspires her, what how losing a loved one puts things in perspective and where she plans to be in ten years. As a special treat, Sheena played a game of rapid response (each of her winsome answers are twenty words or less!)—they may be short in length, but they’re full of laughs, life lessons and buoyancy.

Sheena on…LOVE

“I believe truly loving myself, everything about Sheena, was when I was able to fully love another.”

Sheena on…OVERCOMING OBSTACLES “I just pray and stay encouraged.”

Sheena on…MUSIC

“I’m listening to it now! Music is therapeutic, 2010 was a rough year, so writing and listening helps with situations.”

Sheena on…FASHION

“I love frames; I feel accessories make an outfit. Keep it simple, flash a watch, fly shoes—less is best.”

Sheena on…REALITY TV

“To be honest, I went through a serious addiction of reality TV but I’ve gained control now [Laughs].

Sheena on…FRIENDSHIP

“It’s a small circle but I’ve been fortunate to have friends in my life are like my family.”

“Artists helping artists is very inspirational to me.”

Sheena on…WHAT INSPIRES HER

“Artists helping artists is very inspirational to me.”

Sheena on…FOLLOWING YOUR DREAMS

“I believe we were put on this Earth to be great, stay motivated, committed, and work hard.” >>

Sheena on…HER GO-TO OUTFIT

“As of now, my go-to outfit has been all black everything. It’s simple yet still sexy!”

Sheena on…WHERE SHE PLANS TO BE IN FIVE YEARS

“Still doing what I love which is music and encouraging younger women, also, reaching out to other fields of ‘art’.”

Sheena on…WHERE SHE PLANS TO BE IN TEN YEARS

“By then, hopefully building my talent agency, I’ve always wanted to have my own one day and give back.”

Sheena on…HER BIGGEST REGRET

“my go-to oufit is all black everything. It’s simple yet still sexy!”

“I have so much to be thankful for, God has truly blessed me and there’s no room for regret.”

Sheena on…WHAT SHE LOOKS FOR IN A GUY

“I call them my 3 Cs: Someone who can communicate, knows how to compromise and can be committed.

Sheena on…THE BIGGEST THING THAT’S CHANGED SINCE HER AUGUST 2008 COVER STORY I’m a solo artist. I’m no longer with [the band] The Varsity; we decided to branch off and do our own music.

Sheena on…SELF-CONFIDENCE

“It can be difficult but that’s the beauty of loving what you do, because it never seems like work.”

“I’m confident in the person I am, as an artist, and the person I’m becoming.”

Sheena on…FAMILY

“I lost my father last year and it was rough but it taught me to value every minute with your family. I have a support system with my family. I just spent the holidays with them and it was so great. When my sisters and I get together we sing and it’s a pretty

JAYE NOTEBOOK Perfect Date Ideas for Your Perfect Valentine Now that you've hooked your special guy, what are you going to do on February 14? We've got you covered with 6 great ideas, from the traditional dinner to the creative rendezvous By Siobhan Cassidy >>

FEBRUARY 2011 jaye.com 95


jaye notebook: entertainment << The Date: Homemade Dinner for Two Forget the restaurant and have dinner in your own kitchen. This is a great way to spend time together without the pressure of a formal first date. Invite your guy over—with a group of friends or alone—and make a simple supper together. This is a inexpensive way to show off your cooking skills and since he’ll be helping, your guy can show off his skills, too. Price: $15 Relationship Status: First date. Hanging out as friends can help you determine if you want to see this guy again. If he’d rather watch ESPN while you slave in the kitchen, you probably shouldn’t agree to a second date.

The Date: Fondue Night Who said cheese can’t be sexy and romantic? There are restaurants that specialize in serving fondue with dim lighting and cozy booths, or you can surprise your man by making chocolate or cheese fondue at home. Try serving bread, marshmallows, bananas, strawberries and crackers with your fondue, along with bottle of wine. Don’t forget to give your living room a romantic makeover to really set the mood. Price: $25-$50 Relationship Status: Dating. You can really let your guard down and spend quiet time together without your friends around.

The Date: Classic Carnival Date Date night at a carnival, fair or festival can be super fun. The rides, music and games are fun reminders of your childhood. Carnivals are eventful public places, which can take the pressure off the typical 20-question Q-and-A date. Riding roller coasters, eating cotton candy and going home with a goldfish will make it a night to remember. Price: $20 Relationship Status: Newbie. Bringing your Valentine to a carnival is an easy way to have a great time without a lot of pressure. You can laugh, joke and even share your first kiss on the Ferris wheel.

the lonely hearts club — Just because you’re single on Valentine’s Day, that doesn’t mean you have to be alone

It’s true: One is the loneliest number, but if you add a few friends and subtract the sad face, it doesn't have to be. Instead of moping around the house on Valentine’s Day throw a party with your other friends who are single. Since chocolate and love are so closely connected, we’ve got a chocolate martini and cake recipe for your guests to enjoy. Maybe that hot guy who lives on the first floor will show up when he hears the great time you’re having. By Artieka Smith Chocolate Martini ■ 2 oz vodka ■ 1/2 oz creme de cacao Pour ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake then pour in a martini glass. ITALIAN LOVE CAKE ■ 1 pkg. chocolate cake mix ■ 2 lb. ricotta

96 FEBRUARY 2011 jaye.com

■ 1/4 c. sugar ■ 4 eggs ■ 1 tsp. vanilla FROSTING: ■ 1 pkg. chocolate instant pudding mix ■ 1 c. milk ■ 8 oz. carton Cool Whip Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cake mix as directed; pour into greased

and floured 13 x 9 inch pan. Mix cheese, sugar, eggs and vanilla until smooth. Spread cheese mixture on top of cake batter. Bake 1 hour. When cool, frost (right in pan).


The Date: A Concert This can be a great night out with just the two of you or with another couple. You will be able to see a band perform, have a few drinks and show off your awesome dance moves. If you’re not familiar with the band, it can be a great way for him to share something with you that’s important to him. Price: $40-$150 Relationship Status: First date. It’ll be like having a fun night out with a friend, which will help build your romantic relationship. If you both enjoy the band and their music, this can lead to future dates.

The Date: A Couples Massage Couples massages are a relaxing way to spend time together. Listening to soothing music in dim lighting while you sip champagne will set a romantic mood. Maybe you two can cuddle in the spa’s Jacuzzi. Price: $150 Relationship Status: Committed. This is for two lovebirds who will be comfortable with their shirts off in front of each other and who won’t accuse the masseur of being a little too grabby with their partner.

The Date: A Wine Tasting Whether you consider yourself an expert when it comes to wine, or are completely lost, wine tasting is a perfect Valentine’s Day date. You can learn how wine is made and, if you’re visiting a vineyard, you can get a tour of the grounds. Price: $10-$50 Relationship Status: Dating. This date can be expensive for a first date, especially if you travel to a vineyard, so you should know one another pretty well first. There���s nothing worse than having a bad date and being stuck on a long car ride back home together.

The Dean’s List

Kristen Bell

There’s an effortlessness that stylish celebrities have when putting together outfits that make us enviably take notice. Case in point: Rashida Jones’s denim jacket expertly paired with rolled-up trousers and ultrafeminine bow-heels, which create a look equal parts casual and put-together. For another example look no further than to Kristen Bell who added a jolt of color to neutral wide-leg trousers, reinforcing a prevailing spring trend: eye-popping brights. Speaking of vibrant hues, Fergie threw on a hot pink blazer (we love the black lapels, by the way!) to amp up the visual interest to an otherwise basic black ensemble. And last, but certainly not least, Kerry Washington’s glammedup Breton-top-and-skinny-jean combo is playfully polished enough to work for day or night—and most importantly, the individual pieces can be worn separately to create a bevy of get-ups suited for your busy on the go life. Get inspired by these starlets and shop our list of key pieces! top $315, Diane von Furstenberg; matchefashion.com.
