Photoshoots, Fashion show and Flying in Between

The past months have been really good for my career, business and modeling.  I actually have six magazine feature shoots recently, four had been released and two are to follow.  One was last May and the other one is indefinite. I still can’t believed I’m part of it. This year has been good since I am also included in the recent major fashion show in Doha, Qatar and Shoot for a cause (a fund raising event to help baby LJ who is suffering from leukemia) I will try to write separate entries for all the photoshoots I have been doing (if time permits). It’s just a hobby for me though. I love the outcome of the pictures! I love collecting the pictures from the professional photographers!  Photos are archives of our lives so we should never get tired on collecting it. The more the merrier!

Makeup artists and hairstylists retouching the models faces over and over again (I think I’m one of the few models that time who prefer not to have a makeup artist… I prefer to do it on my own.

Before as a part of audience I don’t know half of what happens in a shoot or in a runway show.  They only see a successful runway show.  They don’t see models dressing and undressing backstage like the speed of light just so they can enter the runway at the right time!

I have been very very very  very busy (is there other word besides from BUSY?) but thank God for showering me with all these blessings after all these years.  I’ll try to write and update more (well, I keep on saying this but it never happened, hahaha I think I should hire secretary soon! lolz).  Nonetheless, thank you to all my supporters/fans/friends that have been messaging me in twitter, instagram and facebook.  Thank you that I still remain as an inspiration by many but source of pictures to be stolen in the Internet! I just hope those pathetic people will stop using my pictures to their profiles, etc! I also hope that Internet users will be smart enough to know that lots of people are just stealing my pictures and pretending to be me. (Haaaayz enough of negative vibes!)

I recently flew to Copenhagen, Denmark. It was a very short layover, we landed there around 3 in the afternoon, and departing the next day morning. We headed to the city right away. One of the crew that I’m with has been there many times so we didn’t have a problem with the directions going to the city and the train station is just few blocks away from our hotel.

Nyhvan ‘the New Haven’, was originally a busy commercial port where ships from all over the world would dock. The area teemed with sailors, ladies of pleasure, pubs and alehouses. The beautiful old slanted houses were renovated and classy restaurants started popping up.

Copenhagen, Denmark

Many of the houses lining the quays of Nyhavn have been the homes of prominent artists. I had fun walking in the city although I’m not that geared up for the weather! I didn’t bring any jackets with me! The weather forecast from my iphone apps told me it will be sunny 17-20 degrees Celsius! To my surprise it’s 10-12 degrees and very windy! I’m glad one of the crew lend me a jacket otherwise I have to buy just for that day…

My Greatest Timepiece investment so far – Rolex

Published June 4, 2012 by starvillanueva

Rolex has been the pre-eminent symbol of performance and prestige for over a century when it comes to watches. When people of the world were asked to name their favorite brand, for the majority of the immediate reply was Rolex. It has been a choice of many famous celebrities from Hollywood to Bollywood and prominent people.

I have been so blessed and so grateful to be able to indulge in my passions. I’ve been buying watches like Tag heuer, Tissot & Rado since I started working. I’ve waited so many years since I finally decided to buy Rolex.

Last week, my family & I went to Singapore for a holiday vacation, while inside the mall, The Rolex Authorized Dealer said that, “It’s the right time for you to buy a Rolex because the prices are increasing every year.” That feeling of being capable of buying it Rolex was amazing! I didn’t lose the opportunity to fulfill another dream. It’s time to spend my own hard-earned money on something that is so precious!

Cyber Life

People will always talk about you, so might as well give them a reason…”

 

Like what I’ve said before, I’m a certified homebody, If I don’t have work or photoshoot, I’m basically just at home facing my laptop! Here’s why even if I’m busy with my flights, magazine team meet ups, writing articles, modelling & my Star Bliss Salon & Spa I still managed to have a cyber life. (But I don’t chat-never. So beware of those posers using my pictures to find a chatmate or whatever they called it.)

My Multiply is flooded with pictures I know. Hehe! So I wanted to make a distinction between my photos and my blogs. My Multiply will still be my official Photo website (though it’s not updated anymore) while Livejournal or wordpress will be for my blog entries such as reviews, travel infos, property, investments interesting articles I gathered from the net, other Flight Attendant blogs, health/beauty tips, inspirations and anything under the sun!

  

You may also follow me through Twitter, I find it easy to update, with just a simple question what are you doing? Your friends and family will be updated. Live Feed! BTW, My Instagram name is #StarVillanueva…

My Suggestion to those who want to start blogging or thinking of having one. I’ve found that writing a blog about your travels is good motivator to go out and find new things, which in turn makes you more of a traveler. Write up a short post on your trip or about anything. Sometimes, probably no one will read it, but that’s not the point, it’s primarily for you, the audience is secondary.

To my beloved readers, I have more than a million things to share to the world through words and pictures, but very busy to update my blog lately… Just continue to take time to listen to me through my photoblog “Welcome to My World, Fly with Me”… Thank you

 A kind of love that my mom has for me simply can’t be described by mere words, she see to it that we are properly nourished, have the best things and provided us with comforts of growing age as far as her budget perfmitted!

She never wanted me to get hurt or go hungry, she served the best food which she does till now. She taught us the value of perseverance, hard work and love for family and most of all she’s my mother and father, she’s simply everything! I love you my pretty Mama! Happy Mother’s day to you and to all the mothers out there!

Started the Year Right with Healthy Living and Photoshoot!

Published February 7, 2012 by starvillanueva

As someone who avoids crowded gyms and treks on the treadmill and different hotels during layovers, I prefer to stretch my muscles and clear my mind in a peaceful and private environment. Yoga presents an opportunity for self-reflection, shedding light on any internal negativity and providing the means to expel such flawed thinking through its meditative properties.

I began my yoga journey back in high school days a decade ago. Yoga is not that popular those days, I can only see yoga studios whenever my family and I will travel in the states it’s also there where I got the video Cds!

I didn’t limit myself with yoga, I’ve also tried Pilates and Zumba classes in Sheraton hotel here in Doha, Zumba is a health boosting dance fitness program, a latin inspired calorie burning experience! I’ve used some muscles I haven’t been using in awhile! I’ve also wanted to try Pole dancing but it’s not offered anywhere here in Qatar, I’ll definitely try it soon after my resignation, It’s always good to try something new when it comes to fitness exercise so that you won’t get bored and will still be motivated.

But still I preferred Yoga classes in Al Sharq Hotel also here in Doha. Theyoffer Yoga classes twice a day for 50 Riyals each class. After my sessions, I felt less stressed, more flexible, and renewed physically, mentally, and spiritually plus a glowing complexion is the bonus of it!

Benefits of Yoga:.

Stretches muscles you never knew you had! And literally massages your internal organs, keeping the tissues stimulated, free from disease, improve posture and it slows down aging process!

Learning to love yourself – how often do we set aside an hour to actually spend time with ourselves? By allocating time to stretch, focus and simply be, we are affirming our own self worth, and increasing vitality.

Detoxification – by limbering up, poking and pinching those tissues which once lay dormant, you increase blood-flow throughout the entire body and assist in the removal of toxins and greater alkalinity – deep breathing increases alkalinity by removing excess CO2 from your system and learning to focus on and appreciate the flow of energy and bring peaceful calm to the mind.

Words to remember: For what good are your 2012 plans if you aren’t healthy enough? What good is working like a dog if you aren’t healthy enough to enjoy the fruits of your labor? What good is luxuryon the sick bed? “Health is wealth” so better start the year right with a fitness program & healthy lifestyle!

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.
