J: Social Media Marketing is one of my biggest obsessions. It’s my current major and this is now my third job in social media!! I also have to say Fashion. I legit could not imagine a world without it. Getting to express myself through style is my favorite outlet for creativity and gathering inspiration from other people is addicting. And I just buy way too many clothes haha.

J: Highlight. We love a good sister shimmer. Huge shoutout to Becca Cosmetics’ collab with Jaclyn Hill for the highlight shade in Champagne Pop. It’s the true secret to a blinding cheekbone.

Ali has been such an incredible mentor to all of us and I have learned so much about business and the fashion industry. It’s also a huge plus getting to work with the other interns because I’ve gotten so close with all of them. I get so excited to come into work everyday!


A&A: Fave Ali & Ariel tee? And why?

J: Easily the APHI Vintage Logo Tee. It was my first ever purchase from Ali & Ariel and I get compliments every time I wear it! It’s trendy and so easy to style. 


A&A: Tell us a fun fact about yourself! What makes you unique?
