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!
Yikes! I wonder what the other guy looked like… #YouShouldHaveSeenTheOtherGuy

The day for fear and fierce is upon us, and I must admit I’m not into Halloween much! Nevertheless , Halloween is a way for both kids and adults to get creative, Im especially excited to see all of the dope Halloween looks blessing social media today. Take a look at some of the favs Ive spotted :
“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).
Lisa modeled for the Unique Blend Models fashion shows.
“Me” time is so important! With my busy blogging schedule, I’m always on the go – running to fashion shows, interviewing models, writing my next blog post… #bloglife.
So when Pause & Unwind, the new self-care subscription box, sent me their September box, I was so excited! What a fabulous way to hit the pause button during my hectic day and just unwind?!
When I opened the box, I was completely awestruck. I carefully unwrapped the sparkling tissue paper and there was a beautiful bracelet, a citrus sea soak, coconut oil, “Happy” tea & an organic lip balm inside. It was the perfect mix of items to just relax and rejuvenate me.
What was inside the September subscription box:
A Druzy Bracelet from Cayetano Legacy Collection
A Citrus Sea Soak from Dirty Mermaid Beauty
Happy Tea from Wild Leaf Active Tea
Coconut Oil from Measurable Difference
Organic Coconut Lip Balm from Sapling & Sprout
I absolutely loved the products so I decided to take my own little photo shoot to send back to Pause & Unwind. I started taking some photos of just the box and then ended up taking some selfies posing with the products. I remembered what runway coach Mandy Dyonne Lieveld taught me about modeling certain products. Know your product and pose accordingly.
Since I took my own photo shoot, I was able to get more comfortable with posing in front of the camera. I took a bunch of pictures until I was happy with the angle, lighting and the overall feel of the photo.
I had so much fun!
The coolest part was when Pause & Unwind featured one of my photos on their Instagram! In the picture, I am posing with Sapling & Sprout’s organic coconut lip balm. I find it so funny that they chose to feature me posing with the lip balm because ever since my photo shoot, I never leave home without it. It’s always in my purse!
Thank you so much to Pause & Unwind! Check them out on their website pauseandunwind.com or follow them on their Instagram @pause.unwind. I definitely recommend this subscription box!

1) As a model, which is your most favorite fashion show to watch?
Hands down the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. The models and everyone apart of the team, who help create it, are remarkable and creative!
2) When you’re not dressed in high-end designer fashion, what are you normally wearing?
My style is Bohemian. So anything comfy like hippy trousers, sweats & gym clothes.
3) Are you a gym girl?
I always go to the gym. I’m all about the squats.
4) What do you base your style off of?
(1) the show 91210 (2) Vanessa Hudgens and (3) my mom, she’s very bohemian. My mom even calls me her “hippie child.”
5) How do you spend your free time?
I surf and skateboard. I’m quite the tom boy. I also study since I am in a University for event management.
6) What is something that people don’t know about you that you are willing to share?
I’m probably the clumsiest person like Mr. Bean. I’m also always laughing.
7) Are you adventurous? What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done that you’re willing to have posted on my blog?
Earlier this year I went to Snowdonia in North Wales, UK. It used to be an old mine from the 1900’s but now there is camping, caving and trampoling. It was incredible!
8) What is your most embarrassing “modeling moment”?
One time while I was on the way to a photo shoot and I got into the wrong Lyft car with an old man sitting inside. I was in so much shock – I forgot my bag inside the car!
9) If you could be a fruit or vegetable, what fruit or vegetable would you be?
A coconut because I’m nutty and love milk!
10) What are your goals and dreams?
Career-wise, I want to be successful with events and have my own events company. My life goal is to be healthy & happy. I wish the same for all of my friends.
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.
Not only is Becca Avill an international model, she is also a TV presenter (host) in the UK! I really admire her because she is actively pursuing her dream of becoming both a top model & a TV presenter.
She hopes to one day be able to model for Victoria’s Secret or Sports Illustrated. She said that they have the best models and it would be a privilege to model for them.
“Any work that takes me to sunny hot beaches is what I want to be doing!”
When she’s not dressed in high-end designer fashion, she loves wearing simple outfits with designer accessories. She’s all about the accessories – sunglasses, coats, bags, shoes & scarves.
Fun fact: Becca has a whole wardrobe just dedicated to coats!
Becca is always working. She splits her time between being on the runway, doing photo shoots and working on TV. She shared that as a TV presenter, she has already covered different stories like the elections, festivals and events. When she manages to have some free time, she likes to play the piano or go outdoors. If she has a free weekend, she’ll book a trip and do some traveling.
Out of all the celebrities, Becca looks most like Kalish from Game of Thrones. Did you know that she recently did an L’Oreal ad for an online campaign?! They dyed her hair and now she is platinum nude!
Fun fact: Before Becca had her hair dyed, she looked like supermodel Gigi Hadid!
Becca is really into fitness & nutrition. She goes to the gym every day and cooks her own food because she likes to live a healthy lifestyle. She is also vegetarian and watches her environmental footprint.
Her top interests are:
Between going to the gym and swimming, Becca is very athletic. Did you know that she loves water sports?! She used to kayak but due to her really busy schedule, she doesn’t have as much time anymore.
If she could be a fruit or vegetable, she would be a tomato because they are so diverse, just like her! You can make so many dishes out of tomatoes like delicious sauces and salads.
