If there is one thing Andi can’t live without, it’s a fresh cup of orange juice (which is the secret behind his perfect health). He also has a few hidden talents… (1) he’s a great mini golf player and (2) he’s a graceful swimmer. If he could be a fruit or vegetable, he would be a grape since everyone likes them.

You can find him hanging out in Brooklyn and enjoying a slice of red velvet cake. He likes shopping at Zara and Topman since his style is more towards “chilling” + urban street wear. If you go on vacation, make sure to bring him back a pair of funky socks for his collection!

Top 5 Ways to Stay in Shape

With New York Fashion Week less than a month away, staying in shape is important for your mind, body and soul.

Here are the top 5 ways to stay in shape:

  1. Yoga – Grab a yoga mat and join a class at your local yoga studio.
  2. Dance – Get up off the couch and start dancing! Join a hip-hop, salsa, ballet, Latin, ballroom or jazz dance class…just to name a few.
  3. Join a sports team – There are intramural teams and sports clubs that have various sports such as volleyball, tennis, basketball, baseball, soccer and/or hockey.
  4. Work out at the gym – Do you even you lift? Lift weights, run on the treadmill and finish your work out with a swim in the pool.
  5. Winter sports – ‘Tis the season to hit the ski slopes and the ice skating rinks. There is of course snow tubing and sledding for those of you who just like to play in the snow.

Have a great weekend! #weekendvibes

Meet Ashley

Ashley D. Burgess is an American actress and model who has a passion for traveling. With her spontaneous and playful personality, she is not afraid to get on a plane and travel the world. Just recently, she came back from a trip to Tokyo and Thailand. She always carries her passport because she says that you never know when your next adventure will be and you have to stay ready! She hopes to one day start a travel blog where she can share all of her exciting adventures. Ashley loves animals and enjoys hanging out by the Santa Monica Beach in California. When asked if she has any quirks she said, “I’m a quirk! What do you mean? Have you met me?!”

If she could be a fruit or vegetable she would be kale because like the super-food, she really cares to “help heal others from the inside out.” Her passion for natural health and wellness is almost as strong as her passion for exploring the world.

Although she has been signed with Wilhelmina Models for only 6 months, Ashley has already taken major runways by storm, including having modeled for New York Fashion Week’s Couture Fashion Week for the Spring 2017 Collections!
