In spite of the heat, we kept it pretty cool here this month on The Burgundy Zine. Of course, we wouldn’t have been able to do it without the help of our talented guest contributors and interviewees.

Monthly Recap

After recapping the highlights from May, we jumped into June with XtaSeay and I’s review of Cresco’s Lime Sorbet Live Resin

Sauce for our Strain of the Week series.

Then, we learned more about ‘Save the Children,’ a non- profit organization dedicated towards helping youth around the globe.

Afterwards, we stopped by Krishna Persaud’s ‘Spoil Me’ cart at the Springfield Mall to learn more about her fine jewelry and migraine piercings.

Then, we investigated all the severe weather that’s been reining down on Pa, such as the unusual spike in tornado warnings.

Following our brief venture into meteorology, we covered the town hall held by Rep. Jennifer O’Mara (D-165) in Radnor.

In the celebration of pride month, Rebecca Gibson shared her story as a member of the LGBTQ community in, ‘The B Word and Its Influence.’

Then, we stressed the importance of summer skincare in our series of articles: ‘How to Shield Your Skin from Summer Sunshine,’ ‘What the Heck is SPF, Anyways?,’ and ‘What the Heck are UV Rays, Anyways?’

Continuing on a medical note, Winston delighted us with his ‘Ultimate CBD Dosage Guide.’

Afterwards, Ela Kaimo gave us a classic, light, summer make up tutorial.

Then, we highlighted some of our favorite summer nails of Instagram.

Next up, Fitness model, Nicolette Brignola, discussed her workout routine as well as her experience competing during our interview.

Switching gears, we dived further into the recent declaration of leopard seals, an arctic animal, as a resident species of New Zealand.

Then, we spoke with Michael Milstein, the public affairs officer of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration about the unusual mortality event pertaining to gray whales.

Shortly thereafter, we spoke to Haley Pavone, CEO of Pashion Footwear about the launch of her invention: heels that transform into flats in seconds with a simple twist and pull.

Just before the release of The Burgundy Zine #6, Smoki Daze blew our minds with her summer lookbook.

A few hours later, we covered our visit with a visit at Lush, where floor leader Amber “Ber” Mancini gave us an in-depth look at the ‘Shark Attack’ campaign, the history of Lush, as well as her own personal experience with the company.

Then, just before the clock struck 12, we released ‘The Burgundy Zine #6: Summer,’ which features articles about skin care, make up, fitness modeling, marine biology, cannabidiol (CBD), and more.

The following is a list of all articles posted on our blog throughout June:
