Bucket List Check: Sky Diving

Published June 28, 2014 by starvillanueva

If you’re going to jump out of a plane you might as well pick somewhere beautiful… like Hawaii!

I’ve made a reservation through online a week before going there. I even booked a shuttle service since the location is on the North Shore of Oahu quite far from where I am staying and nobody can drop me off there because of the fact that nobody knows I was going there till they saw the photos! Haha!

 

I barely slept that night thinking I was going to jump out of a perfectly nice aircraft at 14,000 feet!

 

Precisely at that moment I realized there is no backing out! It was an indescribable feeling!

Falling at approximately 130mph towards the aqua marine blue sea, and the wind is rushing through your ears quite loudly as you try to grasp the magnitude of everything around you, it was surreal. I was trying to keep my eyes open the entire time because the view was beyond the word amazing.

 

The whole thing lasted about 12-15 wonderful minutes. It was absolutely spectacular.  So spectacular, that makes me wanted to do it again!

 

The things you’ve always wanted to do? go ahead do them! It will be an unforgettable experience for you too.

A lot of people want to be a model because it’s glamorous, lucrative, have lots of perks and you might want to be recognized in the modeling world. Modeling is extremely competitive, and the industry is filled with rejection, but successful models are doing something that they love. Here are some major truths about becoming a model, as well as some realistic advice to make it happen for you (Excerpt from Marie Claire)

Decide what kind of model you hope to be. Technically, anybody can be a model. However, do remember that if you don’t meet certain requirements, the work available to you will be incredibly limited, and you may have to compensate in other departments.

A Runway Model: Most women on the catwalk are mostly tall, very skinny (Except this does not pertain to Victoria’s Secret models) If you’re not that tall, don’t lose hope, I’m not that tall either! But managed to make it to runway many times! See this post for more info: https://starvillanueva.com/2012/06/21/photoshoots-fashion-show-and-flying-in-between/
Shoot for a cause
It’s one of the “Shoot for a cause”-fundraising event that I participated,
been published on some Qatar Newspapers
A Print Model: This is my chosen field it just need a beautiful face with great personality and height is not really necessary plus you’ll have a bunch of newspaper, magazines and tarpaulin as a souvenir of your exposure.

An Underwear Model: For women, this requires large breasts but small hips.
Other Types of Modeling: If you don’t fit any of the face or body descriptions, perhaps you can be a foot, hair, or hand model or in case you are not skinny don’t lose hope because there’s also A Plus Size Model: If your body is full and curvaceous, you may be able to be a plus size model.

Educate yourself. There is a lot you can learn from reading books and articles on modeling. Reading quality guides, articles, and books will both help you to improve important skills (like posing) and to better understand how the industry works.

Realize that it’s tough. The modeling world is jam-packed with pretty faces. Just because you are good looking does not mean that you can succeed as a model. In the modeling business, it is not just about looking great. You have to fit the need of specific jobs just in order to get a chance. Modeling is only for serious people who carry unique looks and characteristics. Since there are so many people trying to become models in today’s world, it’s very challenging to get a breakthrough and will only come with patience and perseverance.

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

Published September 24, 2012 by starvillanueva

Star Bliss
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.

Pilipino Star Ngayon
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!

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!

A Peek Into The Intriguing World of Traveling & Flying

Published May 28, 2010 by starvillanueva
“Ang buhay parang isang eksena sa airport. May mga naghahanap. Na nabik sa muling pagkikita. Sa daming nakapaligid sayo. Hindi mo alam kung sino sa kanila ang dapat mong pagkatiwalaan.Pero may mga masarap kasama. At meron ding mga dapat iwasan. May mga naghihintay. Ang iba nagmamadali at kailangan umalis. At minsan nga nasa harapan mo na ang hinahanap mo hindi mo lang alam. Maraming magagandang experience sa aking paglipad pero sa paglapag niyo sa lupa Masaya na akong Makita ang isang pamilyar na ngiti. Saan man ako makarating kaligayahan kong makapiling ang mga mahal ko..eto ang langit para sa akin..” 
 

 
I’ve been watching this trailer over and over again! I’m so touched by the way it has been presented. I’m quite affected by the words too… Aside from offering an exclusive peek into the intriguing world of traveling and flying,I’ve read that the program will also feature many of Philippines famous tourist destinations and it unravels the glamorous, colorful, and fascinating world of the airline industry.

Sana mapadpad na kung nasan ang mga kapatid ko..miss na miss ko na sila eh sila naman ang dahilan kung bakit ako naging flight attendant..sana sa susunod na paglipad ko mahanap ko na sila para magkasama sama na kaming muli eto ang pinapangarap ko.. ang makapiling sila..eto ang langit ko.”
