The Art of Joy: Vanessa Simmons
by: admin

12 Feb

It is early November and I am on Instagram scrolling through some of my favorite Instagram accounts, and listening to Jackie Hill Perry song the Art of Joy. I kept thinking to myself for our first magazine how can we tie together the idea of “ditching the canvas” to where it is connectable and understandable to the everyday life of millennial’s. We are an ambitious generation, academically savvy and yet broken pieces. Somehow we do not fit quite right. We “act right” for the most part, but that is just an act. At the core we are skeptical and worrisome. What is the one restoring factor for us? Then it hit me, it hit me like the first time I realized oranges were pre-sliced by nature. Like Smalls when he found out the King of Crash and The Great Bambino was the same guy; that the restoring and reviving factor is Joy.

Words synonymous when describing a millennial are usually words like ambitious, Fearless, empowered, dreamer, free just to name a few. So when we thought of someone who embodies these very qualities to cover the premier fall issue a particular Daddy’s girl came to mind. I know what you are saying, “wait, you guys have a magazine?” Yes, for those of you who live under a rock in Bikini Bottom, we released the livest lifestyle and fashion magazine for on purpose living & style.
