Keep calm and gobble on! This year my friends and I decided to be trendy and make our own Friendsgiving. We wanted to do a little something special for the holidays. There were about 10 of us and we all had to bring our own dish.
My mom and dad helped me put a delicious assortment together. My mom baked her famous broccoli quiche and my dad raced to get some boxes of donuts. My parents are the best! I think the new motto should be keep calm and call mom & dad.
Honestly, it was so heartwarming to see everyone come together and celebrate. While we were all eating I looked around the room and just thought about how thankful I am.
I just want to take the time to thank all of you for being so wonderful. I hope you have a fabulous Friendsgiving, Turkey Day and Thanksgiving!
Aeri Cohen is an extraordinary model with an artistic eye. When she is not on the runway, you can find her behind the scenes doing makeup for different New York fashion shows. Her ultimate makeup look is something simple yet beautiful where she can add her own creative details. Like a true fashionista at heart, she always carries her brush and concealer.
Healthy – Healthy – Healthy. Did I mention the word healthy? Aeri has a very healthy lifestyle. She never misses her daily yoga and is always drinking a healthy refreshing smoothie. Now that I think about it, even during our interview, she was on her way to a yoga class while sippin’ on a smoothie! You can find her wearing workout clothes during the day and fancy outfits at night.
I really admire Aeri because she lives her life by always moving forward and letting things go. Her biggest accomplishment is that she was able to use meditation to manage her migraines. Now that she accomplished that, she can do ANYTHING!
When I asked her what fruit or vegetable she would be, she started to say that she would be an avocado but then decided she didn’t want to be eaten!
Aeri is the owner of ISHKINart where she creates beautiful artwork which can be found on Etsy.
Fall is my favorite season! I love watching Halloween inspired makeup tutorials and videos. I love looking at how beautiful the trees look wearing their new autumn colors. And most of all… I love tasting homemade pumpkin pies. Yummm!
So in honor of my favorite season, model Rebecca Sorkin shared her fall 2017 bucket list with us! Here it is:
Apple picking – You are the apple of my eye
Watching Halloween movies – Netflix & chill
Trying out fall makeup looks – Hello gorgeous!
Watching football games – Sunday night football
Baking – Whisk me away
So far, I’ve done 2 out of the 5 items on Rebecca’s bucket list. I went apple picking with Josh, my boyfriend at Dr. Davies Farm and we had a blast! We went from tree to tree looking for the best apples. As for the watching Halloween movies bucket list item – I think my one scary movie experience is enough for me. Josh dragged me to see the new IT movie at a drive-in movie theater. During the movie, I noticed something in the corner of my eye and when I turned my head, IT was standing outside my car window holding a red balloon! I was so scared. Even when the movie was over and guy who dressed up as IT was long gone, I couldn’t get myself to step outside of the car!
Do you have a fall bucket list? Have you done any of these things on Rebecca’s bucket list?! Let me know in the comments below!

This blog has been a dream come true and I’m so happy to say that New Style Modé, my fashion blog, has officially turned 1 year old!
I started New Style Modé as a way for you to get to know aspiring fashion models on a more personal level. Now, a year later, not only am I interviewing aspiring fashion models, I started blogging about some of my own fashion experiences and adventures too.
So here is the inside scoop: I am starting to diversify my blog and make it more personal. I will still continue to blog about the aspiring fashion models I meet & I will also be blogging more about my thoughts, feelings and fashion adventures!
This past year in a flash:
I’ve interviewed over 50 aspiring fashion models from all over the world. I was a member of the press for New York Fashion Week in 2016 and 2017. I was trained by international runway coach Mandy Dionne on how to walk the runway. I had my makeup professionally done by Gabriella Golan MUA. I even had my first modeling opportunity with Pause & Unwind, the new self-care subscription box.
Overall, it’s been such a fabulous year!
I want to take a moment to give a HUGE SHOUT OUT to all of the models who I have interviewed. Thank you for giving me your time and opening up about your lives. Thank you to all the fashion show producers, designers and members of the press who have given me the opportunity to become a part of the fashion world. Thank you to my New Style Modé family for always being there for me! I love you so much!
Thank you to all of you who have shown your love and support through following, subscribing and reading my blog. I am so honored. You inspire me every day. You are absolutely wonderful. You have been nothing but supportive!
The first time I saw model Sergio Delavicci (A.K.A Gio) was when he walked the runway at Couture Fashion Week back in February. He was modeling for designer Vanno Fashion wearing an emerald green jacket, black pants with a matching black hat. I was impressed with how Gio was able to capture the audience with his fierce walk. I really wanted to introduce myself but I didn’t get the chance to.
6 months later I’m watching the Unique Blend Models fashion show and guess who I see walking down the runway?!
I told myself no matter what, this time I am going to introduce myself… and that’s exactly what I did. After the show, I found him speaking to a photographer while holding the bunch of red roses. When I told him I recognized him from Couture Fashion Week, he gave me a rose.
Jenny A. (Me): What is your favorite part of being a model?
Gio: It’s inspiring and motivating. It gives me an opportunity to travel, meet different people and open doors for muscular models with tattoos such as myself. I love the energy and the feedback I get from the crowd when I walk on the runway. I get excited whenever a designer tells me that someone wants to buy their clothes because they saw me wear them.
Me: What do you think about when you’re on the runway?
Gio: I really don’t think about it. I just have fun doing it. I’ve been modeling for a long time and at this point, it comes naturally. It’s all about selling the clothes and I enjoy doing it.
Me: What is your biggest challenge in the modeling world?
Gio: I’m not a big fan of wearing makeup. Also, sometimes my modeling schedule interferes with my acting schedule.
Me: Random question… Who is your favorite Disney character?
Gio: I love Mickey Mouse because he’s positive, popular and always happy.
Me: What is something that is interesting about you?
Gio: I am Channing Tatum’s stunt double! I am also an actor, a boxer, a masseuse and a tennis trainer. Recently, I was also in a Steven Spielberg movie, Nor’ester.
Me: If you could be a fruit or vegetable, what fruit or vegetable would you be?
Gio: A watermelon. I like the fact that it’s healthy, juicy and good for your immune system.
Me: Is there anything else you wanted to share?
Gio: I’m very poetic, romantic and very spiritual.
This year Gio walked the runway for New York Fashion Week, Miami Swimwear Fashion Week, Atlantic City Fashion Week, Bronx Fashion Week, Fashion on the Hudson and Rainbow Fashion Week. He was voted as the Top Male Model of the Year during Atlantic City Fashion Week 2017.
