People are certainly more conscious of the environment now and reacted by petitioning Disney to protect the “Dory Fish” otherwise known as the blue tang. Unlike clownfish, blue tangs must be caught in the wild. Pet stores are unable to breed them, which means that divers, like the one that caught Nemo in “Finding Nemo”, actually have to go out and find them. They are taken from their homes and sold off for the enjoyment of seeing part of your favourite movie in your home. How
Cover of Scarlett Epstein Hates it Here courtesy of Penguin Teen / collage by Mimpmag Have you ever been so obsessed with a certain TV show, book, musical, or movie that you feel like it’s all you can think about? Scarlett Epstein has understood that ever since she watched her favorite TV show, Lycanthrope High, for the first time and became hooked. She soon started to dive deeper and deeper into the fandom by writing fanfiction about the beloved characters, and she is more t

We were thrilled for the opportunity! HALEY STANKS: First off, what do you enjoy most about writing both novels and articles? ANNA BRESLAW: When I write novels, the thing I like the most is the time you get to develop your characters. Characters are my favorite part of writing, b

Collage (using stills from films mentioned) by Nahomy Ortiz For a long time, it was very hard for me identify myself with female characters in film. As a child, I looked up to female characters like Catwoman (2004) and Cady Heron (Mean Girls 2004), but I later came to realize that characters like Catwoman were just oversexualized characters that taught young girls that being pretty and sexy was the only goal to stride for. Within media, some characters have become more and mo

Photo by Abbie Bradford It was the summer of sunsets. The summer of joy and love, and most of all, new life. And that very July, that hot summer of 1999, Elizabeth was born. A sun kissed baby they said, like God had shed his golden-sun tears on her.
Newborn: Nobody remembers what their life is like as a baby. I do imagine though. My mother watching my hair grow in, in her lounge chair at the lake. She would caress my face, and she remembers when I first smiled at her, earl
When slow summer days don’t seem to be creeping by fast enough, I often turn to my nostalgia to keep me comforted. Last spring break I had the opportunity to go to beautiful Arizona, home of the Grand Canyon and one of my closest friends. These are some soft, indie songs that remind me of the time.

Our August cover girl, Louise Mangalino, truly knows how to channel both. This gorgeous girl boss has been active on her burger blog, BURGERS AND BARBIE$, since 2010 and has since recently created something I’ve heard described as, “literally the best thing ever” (I have to agree wholeheartedly).

Picture by Jorge Menjivar @dearjorge I feel like a lot of people walk around life not knowing what drives them, what motivates them. It can be hard to find your passion and to understand exactly what it is. If it’s one thing, or many. If it is weaved together like a spider’s web, or spread out all over like a maze. My passion is storytelling. I love to create something out of nothing. To take an idea and weave it together into something beautiful. It’s important to remember t
This month’s theme is a ‘Grunge Princess’ inspired theme, when I think of this the first thing that comes to mind is Pity Party by Melanie Martinez which is pretty much an epic birthday tea party, but with no guests. Throughout history whether is in film, literature and in real life, tea parties have been fabulous ways to eat pastries and drink tea with friends in a gorgeous afternoon, most of the time celebrating a specific event like a birthday, going away party, or just a
I remember the icy chill of a pale pink glass against my warm brown skin. The sweltering heat of a Southern Arizona summer. “Dasia.” My name from her lips was more of a question than a title.
Nonetheless, I turned around to face her. She was still, standing in the open doorway. Cool air leaked through and I could almost hear the hum of an air conditioner, the bustle of women gathered around to discuss horror novels and honey scented candles.
“Yeah?” I asked, instinctively

Art By Larissa Mara @jacksbrokenheartt_ Writing is about understanding. Doubts are inevitable, but whether you let them break you or make you, is completely up to you. Ultimately you are the one with the pen and paper. You write your own story — even if you have to rewrite it fifty times. The writing process is like one big question that you never have the answer to. It’s the fleeing of a flock of birds conserving energy for their next trip; it’s the opposite of success; it i
