Interning For A Magazine!?

Even if I have not been uploading videos on my YouTube channel, it does not mean that I haven’t kept myself busy this year. I wanted to make a blog post about something that ties into my personal life because it starts an exciting chapter for me and I want you all to come along with me!

So, if you’ve been reading my blogs for a while, you know that I am a college student with a fascination for style and beauty and that I have been going to school to study communications. Although communications is a very broad field, I love everything about it no matter which direction I explore. I’m happy to finally let you guys know that the real reason I haven’t touched YouTube in a while is because of the demands of school (which is coming to an end this fall!) as well as the demands of my part-time job and personal life, but also¬†my internship with a magazine!

I haven’t said anything about this because I usually keep quiet about my personal life, but I want to share with you guys a magazine that is all about the arts less traveled and that is 71 Magazine. I’m talking fashion, music, film, science and technology (yes, there is art in even the things you do not think there is!) and I would really appreciate it if you guys would take some time out of your day to visit our website and read up on any of our issues.

music issue

Today we released our music issue and singer-songwriter and musician, KT Tunstall is on the cover! I will not tell you guys the other artists featured in our issue because I want you guys to see for yourselves. It would mean so much to me if you all can go to our website during your spare time and look through our work. We are a bi-monthly, digital magazine, but if you would like, you can always order a hard copy!

Please let me know what you all think about the magazine if you get a chance to look at it and don’t forget to visit here and nominate 71 Magazine for Magazine of the Year. It is an honor just to be considered and it does not take long to register and it is FREE!!

I know I just poured a whole bunch of information at you, but I am so excited to finally let you all know a little bit more about where I’ve been and what I’ve been working on. I am not done with YouTube. I am just occupied with this new endeavor and that actually involves video editing for the magazine on top of my own personal endeavors. I will be back on YouTube as soon as I can, but until then…

I hope you all have a great weekend! Stay stylish!

Texas Weather.

There are many interesting things in this world, but one thing that never fails to interest me is the weather in Texas. You may have heard locals and visitors agree that the weather here is definitely bi-polar and I’m here to declare that statement to be entirely and brutally true.

Earlier this week I was able to walk out of my house wearing heels, a pencil skirt, a sheer tank-top and a blazer. I was a little more dressed up than usual because my 15-18 minute PR presentation was that day and one of our requirements was to dress in business-like attire. I did not take a picture of me in this outfit unfortunately, I was so overwhelmed with all the requirements needed for the presentation and thinking about how there will not only be the class watching, but a panel of 7 judges total watching and asking questions at the very end. My class normally runs for almost 3 hours and I am not kidding when I say this, but I was at school until almost 11 p.m. on that day because of all the presentations, questions and certificates being handed out. So no picture was taken of my outfit on this day.

Tuesday was cloudy. It was cloudy, but chilly in the morning and eventually that chilly wind turned into humidity. I needed to bundle up a little bit more on this day with some tights underneath my skirt, tall suede boots, and a long sleeve top. In the middle of the day however, I wanted nothing more than to take off my tights because I got too warm.

Wednesday it started to rain and the temperature dropped down to 41 degrees. Us Texans can withstand 100 degree weather and we are used to a much warmer environment, so when it drops below 50, we are FREEZING over here. I know this temperature is not a big deal to anyone who lives up north, but to the south, it’s a bit shocking to say the least. Thursday was even colder and still rainy so I was inspired to shoot a video on what to wear on a cold and rainy day. There are 3 outfits that I filmed and I hope to get this video up early next week.

Then, just when I thought that the weather couldn’t get more cold….

San Antonio, Texas got snow on Thursday night. This image is what my backyard looked like last night when it was snowing. Here I am at 21 years old and this was my very first time experiencing snow. My family was mesmerized by the beauty and the abnormality of this happening in a city deep in south Texas. I got to kick the snow, step in it, write my name in it, look up and stick my tongue out like a kid, and my mom even threw a snowball at my back while my dad recorded it. It was the best day ever this year.

This image is one of our cars and seeing it covered in snow was pretty neat. I enjoyed seeing all the little kids and their families walk out of their homes in disbelief that it was snowing. No one saw this kind of surprise happening. The last time that it snowed in my hometown was in the 80’s, when MY parents were kids!

This is how crazy Texas weather is. In one week, I got to wear various types of outfits because of the weather. I went from wearing outfits like the one of me shown below earlier this week, to stepping outside looking like Kenny from South Park!

thursday

Here we are on Friday and most of the snow is already gone. The sun was shining when I left my house around noon and there was warmth once more in the great outdoors. Now it is the evening and it is cold, but not as cold as it was 24 hours ago.

I hope you guys enjoyed reading about what the weather has been like here in Texas and although it was shockingly cold to a lot of us, I enjoyed it the best I could because I know that anyone living in California could’ve really used this snow and rain that we got. Especially with all the fires that are happening over there and destroying a lot of homes and tourist attractions. Please take a moment and send some positive vibes or prayers there way because these fires need to be put to an end already. While we are here¬† bundled up or living peacefully in our homes, someone else is going through something troubling because they may lose their homes. Firefighters have endlessly fought to protect their state and it would be appreciated if any of you who have read this far will take a moment to recognize the tragedy that is occurring and send the best wishes their way.
