Cool Job Alert: Intern Queen Campus Ambassador!

For the past two years, I have served as the Intern Queen Inc. campus ambassadors for Florida State University. Since I was involved with the creation of the program back in the fall of 2010, it makes me especially sad to have to say good-bye. Since I am graduating next spring & will not be on FSU’s campus next semester, I am looking for the next rockstar student to fill my shoes!

As a campus ambassador, it is your mission to spread the importance of interning & how InternQueen.com can help students find the internship of their dreams. You are responsible for blogging & will be assigned larger projects every 1-2 months. These projects will vary but nearly always involve a competition with a fabulous prize. I won the HOT LIST competition last fall & won a Lenova laptop!

In my opinion, the major benefit of becoming a campus ambassador is the network you are introduced to. We currently have over 100 ambassadors nationwide. You will be able to utilize this network to get advice or even referrals for an internship. You might even be lucky enough to meet a few of them at one of our meet ups! A HUGE perk is being able to access the intern queen herself, Lauren Berger, whenever you need her.

Interested in applying? Shoot me over an email with your interest, year in school, campus involvement (if applicable), why you want to be the next FSU campus ambassador & any questions you might have for me. Deadline to apply is November 11th so make sure you email me ASAP. I will be selecting the next campus ambassador the following week. GOOD LUCK!

Events: Urban Outfitters Invades Tallahassee!

Are you tired of the lack of shopping in Tallahassee? Are you sick of driving to Jacksonville, Tampa, and/or Orlando just to get your shopping fix in? Then do I have good news for you!

For the first time ever, Urban Outfitters is taking it’s store on tour. The purpose of this tour is to bring the Urban Outiftters shopping experience to cities without a permanent Urban Outfitters location. Starting on Monday, October 17th, Urban Outfitters will set up shop on the corner of East College Avenue & South Duval Street. The store will be open for business on Monday, October 17th to Thursday, October 20th from 12pm-8pm.

This Urban Outfitters store is unlike any other pop up shop. They used two shipping containers to create the Store on Tour (you can watch the video here). The Store on Tour will have a little bit of everything with something special in the mix just for the Florida State Seminole Fans! Dockers, DRY Soda, and Tortoise & Blonde will also be joining Urban Outfitters on Tour.

Be sure you follow @UOtour on Twitter for the most up-to-date information & come out next week to shop until you drop!

Spotlight On: Collegiate Gameday Bracelets

I am SO excited to announce the launch of my collegiate bracelet line. I have been working hard on the launch of this line & am so ecstatic to see the collection finally go live.

I came up with this design near the end of last fall. I wore them to the last few football games & people instantly fell in love. I decided that I should really make them available for sale but wanted to wait until football season to launch them. Now, I will be using this project to help save up for my move to New York City in March!

Right now, these bracelets are available with three different crystal embellishments: a silver bow, gold bow & flower. I am hoping to add more embellishments to the line soon! These bracelets are completely adjustable & should fit nearly every arm. The band is about 6 inches in length with the ends left long so you can tie them off. You can cut the ends shorter if you prefer. Otherwise, you can just roll it under the bracelet or, when layering multiple bracelets, tie the ends together. Better yet, this line is not exclusively for Florida State for all of my non-Seminole readers & fans! The bracelet itself will be comprised of your school colors & can be ordered as a solid color or predominantly one color (for example, garnet with gold or vice versa). Please specify your school colors when ordering.

These are completely custom bracelets, which are made to order. They are $30 each or 2/$50. All orders will be shipped within 7-10 days.

For more information, click over to the “Gameday Bracelets” tab or click here. Order now to ensure that you will get your bracelet in time for the first college football game of the season!

Spotlight On: ShoeDazzle

What’s my latest obsession? ShoeDazzle of course!

Just two months ago, I had no idea what ShoeDazzle was & now I am officially addicted! ShoeDazzle is a site that offers amazing shoes – all for only $39.95 + free shipping!

How it works: When you sign up, you will complete a style survey. This style survey will be used in order to assure that the shoes they recommend to you will suit your personal taste. Each month, ShoeDazzle will update your showroom with several different types of shoes, handbags & jewelry. Between the 1st and 5th of the month, choose your favorite item(s) that you want to purchase or skip out on the month. There is no obligation to buy each month & joining is 100% free. I joined just to check the site out & had no idea whether I would actually buy a pair of shoes. I ended up buying a pair my first month of joining & another pair the next month.

The first pair I purchased were the Estinas. I had been looking for a black bootie similar to it & was unable to find the perfect pair especially at the perfect price. I loved the style of the Estina & after reading up on their super easy return policy, I decided to give ShoeDazzle a try. The shoes arrived quickly, fit true to size & were extremely comfy – I was hooked! The next month I checked my showroom only to find the perfect pair of nude wedges which would be perfect for my summer internship in New York.

I love this site because it allows me to find the unusual styles I have been searching long & hard for at a reasonable price. You can also earn style points which can later be used to get a free pair of shoes – LOVE!

If you live in Tallahassee, make sure you come out to CLUTCH Magazine’s Spring 2011 Release Party next Tuesday, March 15th at the Filling Station. If you come right at 9pm & are one of the first 25 guests, you will be taking home a ShoeDazzle gift card. Otherwise, sign up here & you will receive 20% off your first order.

A Fashion Year in Review: 2010!

As the end of 2010 is upon us, I wanted to take this time to reflect on the past. As far as fashion, it is clear that this year three brands dominated my heart this year. These three brands include French Connection, Marc by Marc Jacobs & Wildfox Couture. Thinking deeper than that, I compiled a list of my favorite finds this year.

This list included a Theory blazer, Gucci sunglasses, French Connection dress, Michael Kors watch, Wildfox Couture sweatshirt, Marc by Marc Jacobs bag, Juicy Couture riding boots & the Marc by Marc Jacobs perfect purse. Although some of these items made the list because they were a killer deal, they have all become staples in my wardrobe this year.

But of course, this is a time for not only reflecting on fashion, but also on myself personally. 2010 was a major year in my life & I am thankful for everything – the good times and bad.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS:

-Served as the secretary for FSU’s Collegiate Merchandising Association, ran for 2011 President & lost by one vote but no regrets – everything happens for a reason!
- Became the Public Relations Director for FSU’s CLUTCH Magazine. Instantly began working on finding a way to publish an online version of the magazine (for free, of course!) & starting a blog.
- Completed my first internship with Intern Queen Inc. and will continue on as a campus ambassador next semester
- Met Andrea through my summer internship with Intern Queen Inc. & we collaborated in the fall to create the first-ever #CampusFashion Twitter chat – HUGE success!
- Became a campus ambassador for Kembrel where I began increasing awareness of this awesome website on Florida State’s campus while also saving up money to intern in NYC this summer

After reflecting on all that I have accomplished in one year, I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life & what all year 2011 will bring.

Happy new year everyone & thanks for reading! xoxo
