eally, where does the time go? It’s hard to believe we’re already in to our 4th issue for this year! We had a lot of fun preparing this for you and have stocked it full of gorgeous, creative works to satisfy all your fashion and lifestyle needs. We know these hot July/August months mean vacations, weekend getaways, beach days, and roof top patios. That’s why we’ve brought you the best in stylish outerwear accessories with our sunnies and backpack features – perfect for summer-on-the-go. We know you’ll love our fashionable finds and use them well into autumn months. And speaking of vacations, we have the perfect feature for those looking for a real, timeless beauty. Set in a restored 15th-century villa, Il Salviatino is a luxurious hotel near the Florence Cathedral in Italy. We take you through this majestic property and give you a glance into your next dream travel destination. In this issue we also sit down with the stunning Melissa Bolona, American model/actress and also take an interview with the founding women of Mind Over Model. These strong, influential women are doing so much with their time, and have plenty to say. We can’t wait to share it with you all in the pages to follow. Don’t forget to take a peek at our carefully selected Beauty Mark items, as usual, and our added feature on body polishes, balms and creams to keep your skin hydrated and lush during the scorching summer months (you’ll thank us after those sun kissed days). Our goal is to keep you coming back each issue, excited and looking forward to see what’s in store. As the stylish life magazine, we will continue to bring you diversity, creativity and the very best in content from here at home and around the world. Have a beautiful summer,

S UMM ER MAKEU P T RENDS FROM T H E R UN WAYS BY BR I TTANY GR AY FOUNDER OF FANCY FACE INC.

Blue Is Making Waves This Season. Seeing it avant-garde on the catwalk can make incorporating the pop of blue intimidating to the everyday girl. Here are simple steps to bringing blue into your everyday look and making it modern. SKIP THE SHADOW. Opt for a vibrant blue eyeliner or mascara instead. Two of my favourite mascaras (the latter newly launching in July in Canada) are Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara in ‘Beyond Blue’ and Covergirl Katy Kat Mascara in Perry Blue. Applying this daring shade will make you look instantly awake and will draw attention to your eyes. An excellent choice for women with brown and hazel eyes. FLUSHED CHEEKS With Instagram beauty looks being all the rage at the moment, strong contouring is surely starting to become old news in the world of fashion. On the runway this year, we saw that healthy, fresh flush come back full force. Models sported a beautiful natural-looking pink flush which was not hidden by too much bronzing or contouring. Apply a fun summer shade like Bobbi Brown’s Pale Pink to the apples of your cheeks and leave the rest of your skin nude and fresh.

Strobing Your Self To Your Heart’s Content. STROBE AWAY! Strobing has become a staple in the beauty world. However, this technique has been seen in the fashion world for a long time now. Choose a highlighter or cream with a glow in it to apply to the tops of your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, on the Cupid’s bow of your lips and anywhere else you want to light to catch. MAC Strobe Cream (all skin tones) and Nars Illuminator in ‘Copacabana’ (fair to medium skin tones) are both fabulous options. GRAPHIC BLACK EYELASHES Whether we saw drawn on lashes, clumpy mascara or tons of falsies applied to the models this fashion season, one thing was for certain... BIG LASHES ARE IN! To make this look wearable, opt for a majorly volumizing mascara. Two of my absolute favourites are Too Faced ‘Better Than Sex’ mascara in Black & the iconic L’Oréal Voluminous Mascara in ‘Blackest Black’. Coat the lashes generously two to three times leaving 10-15 seconds in between each coat. If you really want to be daring, apply a set of falsies and then apply mascara on top! Ardell Demi Wispy’s are a perfect option for the everyday gal! MAKE YOUR LIPS THE FOCUS Red lips were extremely prominent on the cat walk this year. In terms of texture, matte is still all the rage. For the rest of the face, keep it soft and natural looking with two coats of a black mascara, dewy fresh skin and a natural, soft looking matte bronzer. A fabulous shade at the moment is Christian Louboutin’s Velvet Matte Lip Colour in ‘Diva’.

HOW DI D YOU GET STA RTED I N D I G I TA L I L LUSTR ATI ON?
 For me, illustration was the result of quite intense boredom. Some years ago I attempted creating simple artwork, yet my direction was always influenced by graphic design and advertising. I’ve always followed what is happening in the industry, as it is very broad and well developed. The freedom of expression is what attracts me most. Last year I decided to use moments from my life as basis for the series “Long Story Shorts”. In a very loose way I tried to portray what I felt. “Long Story Shorts” started my journey into illustration.

W H AT I N S PI R ED YOU TO DEV ELOP YOUR S I G N ATUR E STYLE?

 Less is more. I’ve always repeated it, I am repeating it now, and I will continue to do so. I’m a minimalist in every possible aspect of my life. If I’d like to say something, I use the least words, but those that are most descriptive. I treat images the same way. I don’t want to overload emotion into illustration, as they seem already overloaded to me. I don’t know if I can call that my style. I just love the vision of warm pastel colours next to black silhouettes, which alludes to my contrast in relation to other people. I am white, they are black.

HOW DOE S C OLOUR PLAY A ROLE I N T H E G R A PHI C C OM PONENT OF YOUR WO RK ? My colour palette is very limited. It ties into my efforts of keeping things simple. As I’ve explained previously ; )

D O YOU TAKE COMMIS SION S AN D IF YE S, WHAT D O YOU E N JOY MOST ABOU T CRE AT IN G WORK FO R OT H E RS?
 I can divide my clients into two groups. Those who know what they can expect from me and are happy with the results, and those that have their own vision, which often leads to losing self expression. Of course, the first group is the most desirable, because I am given freedom. The key for the client to understand is that they are working with an “artist” and not a “labourer.” It is a subtle difference which significantly influences the communication between both parties. In the end, I’d like to give a part of myself, rather than being a tool in the hands of another.


L I F E

WHAT IN SP IRE S YOU OU TSID E OF YOU R ART? My biggest passion is my life and what develops in it, my passions are my family and friends.

HAV E YOU HA D A NY C HA LLENG IN G C LI E N TS A ND HOW DO YOU OV E R C O ME DEA LI NG WI TH D I F F I CULT I ES? A few months ago I turned down a project for a fashion house. We just did not see eye to eye. If I’m going to be gratified by my work, then the process of creating has to be pleasurable. I am open to collaborating, but on rare occasions. I do my best to pick projects that are equally satisfying for the client and myself. I can be picky because illustration is not my main focus.

W H E R E DO YOU SEE YOUR SELF GOI N G WI T H YOUR WOR K I N T H E F UT U R E ? A NY C LI ENTS YOU’ D LIKE TO WO R K WI TH? The future is varied, and I’ll take it as it comes. But my most ideal project would be to create a cover for the New Yorker.

I S T H E R E A NYONE THAT I NSPIRE S YOU OR YOU LOOK UP TO I N T H E I N DUS T RY ? I keep my eyes peeled, look at the work of other illustrators, I meet people in my path, I travel and keep an open mind. Common as it may be, but that’s how it is. My inspiration is the impulse to action, which may not sounds as great as “inspiration” does, but that’s what drives me in many directions.

F OR T H O SE WHO A R EN’ T FA MILIAR, W H AT I S M I ND OV ER MODEL (M /O /M ) ? Mind Over Model (M/O/M) is, at its core, a destination for beauty and health. It’s cool, and funny, and covers all the bases that anyone obsessed with the beauty and fashion industry would want. But M/O/M is also a friend who wants to hug you and say “Hey! how was your day? how can we help you make it better?” It’s well-written, honest, and intellectual. We don’t want anyone to EVER think that to love beauty, fashion, and wellness is to trade a piece of your intellect.

W H O’S I N VOLV ED I N M/ O/ M A N D H OW DI D YOU BEGI N THIS I N I T I AT I V E? TELL US A BI T A BO U T YOUR B AC KGR OUND. Madison: Addison and I are the two main pillars of Mind Over Model - until we are able to draw a profit, it will stay this way out of respect for our fellow creatives. We began the initiative one August day, almost two years ago, over a date square and an iced coffee in St Lawrence market. I remember how frustrated we both felt that we couldn’t exist in fashion and remain human beings. It was also frustrating how it felt like we had to attain this level of perfection to exist in a place we just loved so much. The discussion then drifted to new models, and how we didn’t want them to feel this way. We couldn’t find anything in Canada that prided itself on well-done, youth-focused, real-talk content from people who had been there, and understood it. So hence, we decided to make our own. It started out as a simple tumblr account giving our opinions on what we felt were common wounds in young girls, and then it became a website, which Addie and I built on our own. Now we’re running a community with a group of girls who are hungry to work, change, and elevate fashion and beauty.

HOW DI D YOU F I R ST GET I NVOLVE D I N T H E FASHI ON I NDUSTRY? T E LL U S T H E S TORY OF YOUR J OURN E Y T H AT LE A D YOU TO BE WHER E YOU A R E TODAY? Addison: I jump-started my career in fashion at age fifteen as winner of the ‘V Magazine Model Search.’ Shortly after, I walked my very first runway show as an exclusive for Calvin Klein in NYC, followed by Valentino and Louis Vuitton in Paris. I have seven years of experience as an international fashion model, appearing in the pages of Teen Vogue and Fashion, and on the covers of Italian Vogue, French Elle, and Flare. I have traveled between New York, London, Paris, and Tokyo for fashion weeks, editorials,

and campaigns— all while balancing school, family and friendships! I also received the inaugural P&G Beauty Award for ‘Best New Face’ and have been featured in Hello! Canada as one of the ‘50 Most Beautiful Canadians.’ I’m currently based in Toronto with Sutherland Models. Madison: I began my career as a model at age fifteen, graduating high school with top honours and scholarship as Canada’s Top 20 Under 20, and took up residence in New York City, where I worked and travelled internationally for two years as a Ford Model. Globally represented by the Ford brand, I quickly found success in what I consider to be my “heart home”, Paris. I worked exclusively for Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz, and booked a campaign for Christian LaCroix on my first day in the city. My first international fashion week landed me on the runways of forty-three shows, including Marchesa, Monique L’Huillier, and Oscar de la Renta. I recently evolved past an incredible few years producing and writing content for FashionationTV, an online style channel meant to embody the Netflix-meets-FashionTV absence that existed in the industry. I currently manage my time with the growing success of Mind Over Model and a Metaphysics, French and Italian degree.

WHAT ’S YOU R FAVOU RIT E PART ABOU T M/O/M AN D HOW ARE YO U WORKIN G TO GROW IT ? What we love about M/O/M is the community that’s just kind of found itself - we didn’t expect that at all. We remember our very first fashion week and just seeing that people even knew what we were doing. It shocked us. Now, to see girls actually reading our articles, and taking our advice evokes a deeply humbling feeling. We love that the readers trust us. It speaks volumes and we want to work even harder to create a unique and inclusive kind of community.

remind yourself that everyone is in their own world and most worried about themselves, it relieves so much pressure to be perfect. You can be confident in yourself, and not worry about living up to expectations you unrealistically created in your own mind. The reality is, no one is paying attention to you as much as you are; the little flaws in yourself that you notice (that can sometimes come close to ruining your day) are non-existent to anyone outside your brain.


WHAT E XCIT IN G N E W P ROJE CTS D O YOU HAV E O N T HE G O AN D U P COMIN G IN T HE N E AR FU T U RE ? We’ve found that the Canadian beauty industry is really missing a voice that speaks from a behindthe-scenes perspective, but who also understands the necessities in being a consumer. We buy all of our own products, and going forward, we weight that into account - would someone get more than their money’s worth out of this? How is it made? What is the message? All of these elements are given conscious thought at MOM, and we think that is something our readers crave, that’s what they’re looking for right now. A cool MOM and also a best friend who knows what she’s talking about. We work really hard to know what we’re talking about, and that’s where we stand out. We’ll also be going to New York more often to work with inspiring models and creatives we feel our readers would benefit from meeting. We have a lot of exciting interviews planned that should help to broaden and glue together our #MOMSquad.

STAY FIT, STAY SATISFIED: HIT THE GYM THIS SEASON WITH MULTIPLE MISSIONS BY LAURA SHIRK

It happens more than you think. Between sets of lunges, rather than a water break, some are left to giggle it off. Never mind rotating days, there’s one group of muscles that should be getting your attention on the regular. If you often find your dragging your heels to make it to the gym between morning and afternoon patio shifts, spice things up with a fitness goal outside of the norm. And by outside of the norm, I mean more than just a bump in weight or a change in class. Turn the page on the latest CrossFit craze and start making the cross over between your pillow play and workout way. Hitting the gym is not only about staying fit, it’s about staying satisfied: two things that many often associate with a healthy, active sex life. Beyond working to maintain your bikini bod, think about exercising as a second source of pleasure (minus the mandatory foreplay, pre-existing expectation and possible regret). Forget about #MotivationMonday and let the big O push you to perfect your practice. And for the record: we’re not talking about the leader of all things lifestyle, Oprah. Last year, Debby Herbenick Ph.D., author, educator and sex researcher, released the book, “The Coregasm Workout.” In it she explains the unconventional approach to reaching your end game and reveals ways to increase your chance of arousal while breaking a sweat. Originally published in Cosmopolitan, she notes, “We know that for women, [coregasms] generally feel most similar to orgasms from vaginal intercourse, but they tend to feel more dull, less intense and more tingly.” Often as a result of repeated moves targeting the abdominal muscles or an immediate switch from cardio to core work, gym-goers can simply add the response to the lengthy list of benefits of exercising.

If wanting to be interrupted by a tingling sensation greater than fatigue, concentrate on leg raises. In addition to floor work, the circuit action you don’t want to miss out on is the abdominal power tower: it really is all in the name. Speaking from personal experience, the combination of variations on the vertical knee raise acts as a trigger. For those who prefer to keep their personal (and their very personal) life separate, public arousal may be like long lasting change room nudity – a definite no-no. If this is the case, take preventive measures to limit possible occurrence or embarrassment after the fact. Engage minimally with the core and use gender-specific work out areas to help achieve an oh-so average experience. Caught pleasantly by surprise? Follow these steps to stay as cool, calm and collected as physically possible: Embrace it. Depending on the number of onlookers and minutes left on the clock, just get ‘er done. No cool down required. Flip that switch. Pump the music and beat it MJ style. Make moves, bottom to top. Change up the area of the body you’re targeting, even if it’s not part of your original workout plan. Laugh it off. Because we both know that you’ll return sooner rather than later, maybe even for a two-a-day. Source: http://bit.ly/1tsNpYN

I enjoy just hanging out and taking my dogs to the beach to run around. I also like to get fit on my free time.

YOU SPENT SOME YEARS LIVING IN LIMA, PERU WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER, DO YOU EVER MISS LIVING THERE? IT MUST BE A BIG CHANGE LEADING THE LIFESTYLE YOU DO NOW, COMPARED TO WHEN YOU LIVED IN PERU. I was very young when I lived in Peru, between 9-11 years old.  Prior to that I lived in New Jersey and moved back to New Jersey after my years in Peru, so NJ always felt like home to me.  I don’t miss living there but I am very eager to go back and visit and see family!! RIGHT NOW YOU’RE CONSTANTLY TRAVELING BETWEEN NYC AND LOS ANGELES FOR WORK. DO YOU EVER FIND TIME TO TRAVEL FOR LEISURE? WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE VACATION SPOTS? I do find time to travel for leisure! Sometimes I am also fortunate enough to kill two birds with one stone, such as the Cannes Film Festival.  I traveled there for work and got to spend time vacationing afterwards in one of my most favorite spots, St Tropez.  I am also a huge fan of St. Barts in the Caribbean.  YOU’RE SOMEWHAT OF A PHILANTHROPIST AND HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH NUMEROUS CHARITIES. WHAT HAS INSPIRED THIS?   I think I have been interested in helping out other people since a young age.  Its always been a priority for me.  I even considered becoming a psychologist at one point to help people out on an emotional level.  I think my upbringing and my mom inspired this in me at a young age. I READ THAT GROWING UP YOUR NICKNAME WAS “COOKIE” SHORT FOR “COOKIE MONSTER” IS THIS TRUE? WAS THERE A SPECIFIC COOKIE THAT YOU JUST COULDN’T EAT ENOUGH OF?

Guilty! I was called Cookie Monster for my love of cookies naturally.  To this day I can’t get enough of chocolate chip cookies, they are my absolute favorite!

YOU HAVE 4 DOGS, IS IT HARD TO SPEND TIME AND TAKE CARE OF THEM BETWEEN ALL YOUR TRAVELING AND BUSY WORK SCHEDULE?

DID YOU ALWAYS KNOW AND PLAN ON BEING AN ACTRESS?

I am extremely fortunate that my sister Michele loves the dogs like I love them!! When I am very busy with work she will take one or two of them and the other two will come with me. Taking care of them is second nature to me, its part of my daily routine and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

When I was much younger I would run around saying I was going to be an actress, I even recently discovered an old diary, with my young-self set on being an actress. As I became a teenager I toyed with the idea of being an FBI Agent, which I was super into; as well as being a psychologist (or even an FBI Psychologist haha!) Hopefully one day I will be able to combine all these dreams and play one in a movie! IN YOUR UPCOMING FILM DOG EAT DOG  YOU WORK WITH NICOLAS CAGE, HOW DID IT FEEL WORKING WITH SUCH A RENOWNED ACTOR IN HOLLYWOOD?  It was a very cool experience and a bit surreal.  Its a big opportunity as a young actress to be able to work with someone so well-seasoned in the industry; you learn a lot from just being on set with them and watching them in action.  He is a true professional when it comes to his craft!

WITH SUCH A HECTIC WORK SCHEDULE IT MUST BE HARD TO FIND TIME FOR YOURSELF. WHEN YOU DO, WHAT ARE SOME WAYS YOU SPEND YOUR FREE TIME? I enjoy just hanging out and taking my dogs to the beach to run around.  I also like to get fit on my free time (whether its riding bikes, running, or classes) it makes me feel productive and good! DO YOU HAVE A “DREAM PROJECT”  OR “DREAM ROLE” THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO WORK ON? IF SO WHAT IS IT?  I do indeed!! I would absolutely love to play a character like Lara Croft!! She is so cool, tough, and a strong female figure.

TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE MOVIE. The basis of the story is about three men (Nic Cage, Willem Dafoe, and Christopher Matthew Cook) who are all out of prison and have to adapt to the real world.  Lets just say it is a very cleverly written and directed film (directed by Paul Schrader) in the grittiest and most entertaining of ways!

IF YOU COULD GO BACK AND RE-LIVE ONE NIGHT/ DAY OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?  Tough question! I honestly don’t think I would go back and re-live a night or day in fear that it would change any sort of outcome or memory I have of a great night/day.

SOUR BEER CEVICHE SERVES4

INGREDIENTS • • • • • • • • • •

1 /2 red onion, finely chopped 9oz (250g) fresh white fish, cut into ½ in (1cm) cubes 1 /2 red chili pepper Juice of 1 lime 1 /4–¹⁄3 cup (50–100ml) Sour Beer 1 /2 teaspoon sea salt 1 /2 teaspoon ground coriander 2 avocados, skinned, stoned, and sliced, to serve Handful of fresh cilantro (coriander), to serve

DIRECTIONS 1. Soak the onion in some iced water for 10 minutes to take the harsher edge off the flavor. 2 .Meanwhile, place the fish in a large serving bowl. Add all the other ingredients, apart from the avocado and cilantro (coriander), and mix together gently. Leave to cure in the refrigerator for 30–60 minutes. Check the seasoning (adding more salt or citrus, if you prefer). 3. To serve, place the fish on top of the sliced avocado and sprinkle with cilantro (coriander).

EAT IT WITH It’s a beer snack, so pretty much anything and everything will be the sour beer you cured the fish in works best, where something such as Girardin is a nice choice for its balance of acidity and subtle sweetness. A good alternative is a cold dark lager—try something simple like Negra Modelo or a classic German version.
