Proud of My Weekly Column at Philippine Star Today and The New Image Model-Endorser of BNY!

Maiden Issue of my weekly Star Bliss Column at Pilipino Star Ngayon – September 23′ 2012

I have been postponing for ages to write the good news. Maybe because until now, I’m ecstatic and overwhelm with all the blessings that keep coming. I’m now an image model/endorser of Bunny Jeans or better known as BNY. I’ll be modeling their clothes in Philippines and in Middle East. My first photoshoot using BNY clothes was held in Doha, Qatar. I love all the clothes, it’s so comfortable & classy. I’ve already attended one of their events and then they introduce me in the stage as one of their endorsers. The feeling was so surreal, I’m so glad. Thanks to “Doha Trensetters” – The Company that imports brands such as Hammerhead, Dickies & BNY in Doha. They have a showroom in Montazah st. in front of Montazah Health Center. So readers from Doha, please visit their shop! They have variety of wardrobe collections from jackets to pants, shirts, polo and dresses.

I’m so excited to see myself on another magazine, but this time I’m in the cover. Honestly, I haven’t seen the layout yet but they said it’s now for printing and might be published next week.  It is really something!

Ok, too much of being in the modeling side, here comes the other side of me. I’m so proud to announced that I now have a regular weekly column at Philippine Star Today (Pilipino Star Ngayon) my articles will be about beauty, fitness & health and yet another feature at Health Today Magazine is also coming out. I really consider it a milestone in my life that I will treasure and forever will be proud of.

I grew up reading health, beauty and fitness magazines and newspapers and here I am now. Having my own column in a real and well-circulated newspaper. God is so good. He will always give more than I asked for. I’ll be forever thankful.

So anyway, I shall finally post the pictures I got off the net for the BNY Catalogue and from my Intagram account at #StarVillanueva

I had shot this more than a week ago during the peak of summer season, Yes! still having photo shoot under the heat! So imagine the humid and I was wearing BNY checkered collection polo shirt but still looking so comfy! Good thing I shot some of it in a covered area, at least there wasn’t any direct sunlight all the time so no need to retouch my makeup often, since I’m doing my own makeup, it’s not that I don’t trust makeup artists but I just personally preferred to apply it on my own.  I personally think that I did a job well done! Cheers!

Fitness First!

Published August 30, 2012 by starvillanueva

I recently became a Fitness First Gym member. I took advantage of the 14 months membership because of its huge discounts. It’s just that when I exercised at home or hotel gyms, I already get used to do with what I am doing and experienced a plateau, a condition when the person exercising finds his fitness, strength or endurance staying at a constant level. Fitness First is perhaps the most popular gym in the worldwide. Reason? They have so many branches, mostly in malls, making them the most accessible gym anywhere.

Part of my motivation to stay fit is to wear to exercise clothes and accessories! My friends are telling me that its just my excuse to go shopping! haha! I love my Pink boxing gloves, It’s still so girly despite of throwing heavy punches! Pink is all that matters! (Photos are from my Instagram account, Follow me @ #StarVillanueva )

Philippine STAR Ngayon

Published October 26, 2011 by starvillanueva

Whether we admit it or not, at one point in our lives, we’ve wondered what it would be like to be in the shoes of our favorite celebrities–where fame, fortune, and endless Twitter followers and Google hits come up at the click of their name.

After college, I had no grandiose dreams of being a Super Star! I just want to be employed as an flight attendant and to have my own business, I never have thought that God will blessed me endlessly with fame, career & fortune all at once! It’s like living the dream having my own spa and photography studio as my business, flying career, modeling, magazine writer, few endorsements, and investments. Thank you Lord! Nothing I could as for more.

I got featured again at Health Today Magazine October 2011 Edition, before my photo was just was just ¾ or ½ page of the magazine, but this time I’ve got the whole page! Yey! This is what I am waiting for! Thanks you Ms. Ingrid Cabrido for this opportunity and Mr. Leo Bautista for the photo!

For others maybe Photoshoot could be tiring, not for me because I’m used to wearing makeup and high heels, and of course, I love my pictures being taken by professionals! Modeling or posing in front of camera is one of my life’s joy… I don’t consider it as a career though – it’s just something I enjoyed doing. As what I’m saying since then, as long as I’m happy with what I’m doing I don’t care if there’s no fee involve. I’m just after the experience, exposure and addition to my picture collection and personal portfolio.

Here I am, gracing the pages of Health Today Magazine October 2011 Edition for the 3rd time!


Available to all leading newstands, bookstore, and supermarket! Grab a copy now! God Bless you all, Thanks!

My Very Own Star Bliss Salon & Spa

“Be Pampered Like a Star…”
 
 Every once in a while, we all deserve to indulge and pamper ourselves so we can recharge our tired mind and body. I’ve always enjoyed pampering myself by going to spas. Just early this year my mom and I went to The Spa then out of nowhere we had a conversation about starting our own spa business. It was more on kwentuhan lang na parang nangangarap because It’s my dream talaga to have my own spa since I‘m a self confessed spa addict. I didn’t know that my mom was so serious regarding our conversation! Nagulat na lang ako meron na daw 2-storey space for rent siya na nakita, the location was very nice. It‘s in Timog Cor. Scout Torillo in Quezon City (in front of Off The Grill-Near Jade Valley) it’s near lots of restaurant so that it would be convenient for our customers to buy snacks in case they got hungry and also walking distance from condos, schools & other establishments and there are many parking lots available.

 
 * I’m planning to put up a branch near my condo in Mckinley, if anyone is interested to franchise just let me know.  
The treatment rooms/beds has the warm and luxurious feel, enhanced further by ambient lighting and the sweet scent of aromatic essential oil in the 2nd floor for massage, scrubs & waxing services, while the 1st floor mainly caters foot spa, manicure, pedicure & Hair Spa services. (Will post the list of services soon).
 

* Pang billboard sa Edsa hehe!
 
Last year, I already set my mind that I’m going to resign this year, but while my spa is under construction, I overspend unexpectedly then decided to extend my flying career a “bit” more!
