FASHION MAGAZINE INTERNSHIP ADVICE

Hello all! I hope the first month of 2018 has been treating you kindly and that you’re smashing all of your bad ass new years resolutions.

Sad, but true. Now that this amazing learning experience is over, what’s next for me? I’ll let you know once I catch up on two weeks of sleep. XO Jessica
