Is it too late to ask either of you lovely ladies internship questions? I have an interview with Lucky Magazine in two weeks for a summer internship and I was hoping to get some advice on how to prep!

for the puppy in the 2nd picture . you should try angel eyes : i started using it for my little whiteee pups & it made such the difference. because the gooeyred is actually a yeast infection& makes them uncomfrotable! : (

Thank you for the advice, Kiki! Believe it or not, we actually use just that on poor Magic...she must have the world's most stubborn case of teariness :( My mom sometimes slacks off on making sure she gets it, so when I come home for vaca (i.e. right now) I make sure to bug her about it!

You are both ridiculous women.

Is your internship a paid one? And if so, how do you pay for the expensive new york amenities?(ex.apartment) Can someone who doesnt wanna major in fashion but loves it still apply to intern at teen vouge?
Pink_Champagne on January 05
eh my gawd, can you give me those same answers? i was thinking about majoring in literature or theatre, but i still am addicted to fashion! you can send me a private note, and we can exchange email addresses if you want. thanks! =)

What geekbonchic says below is very true--paid internships are very, very difficult to find within the magazine industry. They do exist--in fact, Conde Nast runs an amazing (and fully compensated!) summer internship program every year--but can be tough to pin down. I'll send you a note with the rest of my answers!
geekbonchic on January 04
Almost nobody needs to pay interns due to the high supply of people willing to do the work. Save up some money/ask the parents for a loan and just work. Also, nobody cares what you major in, so long as you're willing and able to do what they assign you.

i think the videography has a gossip-girl-book-coveresque feel...mysterious :)

ha, I took the Greyhound from Orlando to Miami (I flew down from Minnesota first)
Pink_Champagne on January 02
lol, how cute was that beach boy? =)
Elana on January 04
Oh jeez, haha. It wasn't so much that he was cute--it's just that no matter how many of 'em you see, those overly-tanned, scantily-clad, overly confident Miami boys never cease to amaze me ;)

Elana, how did you get your first internship at Teen Vogue? What made you stand out agaist other applicants? What do you hope to be in the future?
Elana on January 04
Hi there! Would love to answer your questions, but my response is a little too long to post in a comment or note. Want to send along your e-mail address? Would be happy to chat with you that way!
Elana on January 01
Hey everyone! Happy 2009! Would be happy to field any questions you might have, or just chat :) Connie, the video turned out GREAT! And love the "Miami" musical inclusion. Big Willie Style LIVES...
