Please welcome EA's first-ever intern!

Monday, June 28, 2010

I'm delighted to announce that Effortless Anthropologie will have an intern for summer 2010! Please join me in welcoming Rebekah. You'll notice that the "About Me" section has now changed to "Contributors" and will stay that way for the rest of the summer. Beginning later today her posts will be full authorship and will not be in italics like guest posts are. I think you will be able to distinguish our writing voices pretty quickly but if not there's always an author tag at the end of each post.

Rebekah created a Q&A style biography to introduce herself which I've posted below. Her first post will run a little later today -- show her some love in the comments, won't you? She'll be covering Polyvore, as well as Anthro emails and the occasional featurette over the next couple of months. I could not be more delighted!

About EA's intern:
Name: Rebekah.

Why EA?: Anthropologie defines my personal style to the core, a taste of European flair calmed with modern touches. I can think of no better place to learn about fashion and the "ways" of the internet than right here!

Favorite Stores: Anthropologie :), Forever 21, Arden B., Banana Republic, Ann Taylor LOFT, Urban Outfitters, BCBG, Armani Exchange, Vintage Shops.

Favorite Designers: Elie Saab, Carolina Herrera, Yigal Azrouel, Balenciaga.

What Do I Do?: Senior in high school in Columbia, SC.

Favorite Food: Chicken Alfredo. Period. I can eat mounds and mounds and mounds of it. Proven.

Favorite Thing About SC: The multitude of spots available for studying, reading, and enjoying the sun.

Special Talents: Skilled at remembering previous roles of actors, excellent at roach hunting at 2 AM in kitchens, unstoppable at avoiding massive breakouts during exam season.

How Do I De-stress?: Step 1) Crank up the Josh Groban. Step 2) Light candles. Step 3) Find every single quilt I can in my house and place them on my bed. Step 4) Roll up the piles of Seventeen and Lucky, next to my bed. Step 5) After contented reading, drift away into the land of Nod.

College Plans: Columbia University, University of Chicago, Boston College, Loyola @ Chicago, American University, DePaul University, George Washington University, University of South Carolina @ Columbia...I'll have to pick one eventually.

What Do I Do In My Free Time?: Art Journaling, it's a brand new concept I'm exploring inspired by Teesha Moore. Any DIY project I can use to spice up my room, my goal is to complete transform it into my own personal space by the end of the summer...only to leave it NEXT summer, but oh well! I love love love to read, right now I am paging through Bread Alone by Judith R. Hendricks. Zumba has become my new passion, as well as any other gym class I can find!

Favorite Music: Selena, tobyMac, Michael Buble, Josh Groban, Taylor Swift (I just had to!) Jason Mraz (My darling future husband.), James Morrison, Oliver James, Maroon 5, Pantera.
