Did you ever wonder what it’s like to celebrate the holidays in Australia? While it’s usually cold and snowy here in New York, it’s usually warm and sunny in Australia! Model Claudine Henningsen shared what she loves about the holiday and how she celebrates them.

Meet Claudine:

How to celebrate the holidays Claudine style…

So…  in Australia, it’s summer during the holidays! For us here it’s all about the sun, going to the beach, surfing, and catching with friends and family. For me personally, the festive feeling and the buzz of Christmas really starts with our yearly family Christmas Carols in the Park. It’s an amazing evening with loads of singing, live performances, awesome food trucks and huge fireworks.

Setting up the Christmas tree is also a really special tradition where my Mum, Dad, my brother Gabriel and I (even our dog Holly and cat Yoda), dance around the tree, sing, be silly and decorate the tree!

I love to spend the holiday time catching up with my brother, hanging out with friends, having sleepovers, and going shopping. I also love heading to the beach and pools, going to the movies, trampolining, being with my pets and spending “girl time” with my Mum.

New Years is usually a big group celebration. Sometimes we head to the country or go up north to Brisbane to visit my Aunty, Uncle and cousins.

There are plenty of lazy days in there for just relaxing, playing board games, reading and watching TV. I enjoy our hot, balmy barbecue evenings and our morning sleep-ins.

Making a Splash with Model Lisa Franco

Meet Lisa:

“Brand in Demand” – The fashion world is starting to notice model Lisa Franco as she makes a name for herself as a model.

Lisa’s goals are (1) to be featured in a magazine and (2) to be an ambassador model.

The secret to keeping her young looking is her miracle water – Kangen Water. It’s the only thing she drinks and simply can’t live without it! When Lisa’s dog had arthritis, she gave her dog miracle water and it helped cure her dog.

No pain. No gain. Lisa goes to the gym 5 days a week working out on the StairMaster, the Elliptical, and using some weights. You can find her getting pumped up at a kickboxing or hip-hop class.

She shared that her biggest accomplishment is having her own house and raising her wonderful son, Michael Cerasani whom she is very close to. Fun Fact: her son was a cast member on season 5 of MTV’s reality TV show “Are You the One?” where he fell in love with a girl on the show and moved to Texas.

Photographer: Rafael Marin

Lisa loves a little adventure. She’s gone boating and zip lining. She has even swam with the sharks, dolphins, eels & stingrays! She likes to relax by the pool, take a swim, and walk on the beach under the hot sun. Her dream vacation spots are Tahiti & Greece.

What is Lisa really like? She is a down to earth, sweet and very friendly model who is not afraid to approach people.

If she could be a fruit or vegetable, she would be a watermelon because it is refreshing and sweet (but not too sweet).

Photographer: Don Pittman

Lisa modeled for the Unique Blend Models fashion shows.

A special thank you to photographer Rafael Marin for his collage of professional headshots.
