  2. Poo-Pouri is thee perfect treat for everyone on your Valentine’s Day List: yourself, your Galentine’s, and especially your SO! In case you missed my IG post, I was shopping for it here. I love how it comes in a dual pack specially designed to trap unpleasant odors beneath the surface of the water, it includes the delightful scents of vanilla mint and lavender.

Red Underwear For The New Year!

Paying homage to my Italian roots, it’s been said that wearing red undergarments on New Year’s Eve brings good luck and prosperity. It’s believed that wearing the color red helps continue the intention of good luck, so you may just wear it on the New Year, or every day because, why not?! For many of us, lingerie is a practical necessity but I’m here to remind you that it can be a lot of fun! I’ve rounded up my favorite red bra’s and panties to help you ring in the new year in style:

Market Week / Curve Shows

There are many different opportunities that I’ve been able to experience as a model. Working lingerie / swim market week is definitely one of my favorite ones. It’s a nice change of pace from my typical work in front of a camera. I also have the opportunity to work at trade shows in convention centers. When I work market weeks and trade shows, I am hired as a showroom model. The swimwear/ lingerie brand has the opportunity to meet with their vendors/buyers and pitch their new styles for the upcoming year. Basically, I am giving the buyers an opportunity to see the product on a real body, as opposed to a mannequin or hanger. I like to think of it as “live modeling.” I quickly learned that my presence/job is extremely important when it comes to driving sales. If I look great, happy and confident- there is a much higher chance of the product selling to the buyer. If I walk into the room slumped, with no energy or excitement, it is not very enticing to the buyer. I'm incredibly grateful to work with Eveden brands, I've learned so much about how to properly fit a bra. Speaking of which, blog post on that coming soon! 

Here are some of my favorite looks from this season’s curve shows, coming soon! Which is your favorite look? I'd love to hear!
