3…2…1…The countdown begins! Everyone keeps asking me what is on my New Years resolution list so I decided to share my list with you! I feel like it’s going to be a great year filled with a lot of hope and wonderful opportunities. For me, 2018 brings a lot of excitement, happiness, and growth.

Just like a countdown, I counted down my top 5 New Year resolutions:

5. Interview more models – While I have interviewed a lot of fashion models, I would love to do more interviews in 2018. I would also like to interview and feature more international models.

4. Buy new equipment- I really want to get a good external camera light for my pictures and videos.

3. Host my first New Style Modé fashion event – I would like to network more and maybe even have my own event!

2. Create more videos – This past year, I focused a lot on my writing. I would like to make more short videos in 2018.

1. Grow my readership and blog – I want to thank all of you for reading and following my blog! If you haven’t already, be sure to follow the blog on Instagram @newstylemode

Happy New Year! 🙂

So tell me, what’s on your New Year’s resolution list?

Love always,

Happy Holidays from Model Darien Willardson

 
I met up with model Darien Willardson in the middle of New York City to find out what he loves about the holidays! Between all the holiday festivities and decorations, New York City is such a beautiful place to celebrate the holidays. Fun fact: Believe it or not, I was really excited that it was snowing in the background during our interview. What better way to feel swept away by the spirit of the holidays as the snowflakes start to fall?

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.

Model Marcus Killebrew’s Advice for Facing Your Fears

It was almost 11:00pm and everyone was getting ready to go home from the Unique Blend Models fashion show. It was such a long day but I didn’t want to leave without speaking with model Marcus Killebrew. So there I was sitting in the lobby with Marcus while he opened up about his modeling career.

After speaking with Marcus, I was inspired. He said that fear is an illusion and it only prevents you from moving forward. Very wise words. While there are many things that might be scary, I decided that right now I am going to focus on my own fears.

Meet Marcus:

“Take more risks and see what happens.”

Model Marcus Killebrew is a personal trainer who believes in the power of takings risks and not letting fear stop him from accomplishing his goals. He shared that when he was younger, he used to be bullied and that lifting became a type of therapy for him. It helped him build up his confidence. Through his experience as a personal trainer, he is constantly tring to help others break through their fear and anxiety.

Marcus’s top goal is to grow himself into a strong brand for both (1) his modeling career and (2) as a coach. He shared that some of challenges he’s faced as a model has been trying to better understand the business side of the modeling world and adopting to all of the politics. Even through all of the challenges, he is always trying to learn and grow from his experience.

Marcus likes to hang out in the comfort of his own home. You can find him watching an episode of Game of Thrones or playing some video games. When he goes out, he likes to check out the different eateries and dessert spots which NYC has to offer. One of his most recently discovered places is Tipsy Scoop, which serves ice cream with a boozy twist. Cheers!

Fun Facts about Marcus:

  1. His favorite weight training exercise is the deadlift.
  2. If he could be a fruit or vegetable, he would be a raspberry because it is both sweet and tart.
  3. Rush Hour 2 and The Matrix are his favorite movies.

Marcus modeled for the PLITZS Fashion Marketing and for the Unique Blend Models fashion show.

Happy Halloween! One of my favorite Halloween “traditions” is scrolling through my newsfeed on Facebook and Instagram to see what people decided to dressed up as. Between the selfies and group photos, I love seeing how much creativity goes into each costume. I have to admit – this year’s costumes are inspirational. I love seeing the imagination and thought behind them. SO when I saw that some of the Victoria’s Secret Angels went all out for their Halloween costumes, I just had to share them with you!

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.

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).
