NATALIA B. Music Recording Artist, Model, 200% Woman...
“Natalia was the first woman that ran through our minds when it came making this edition of STYLZ® Magazine. You have to agree, she is a first draft pick all the way.”
A Talk With: NATALIA B. Let me set the scene for you. Just got off the phone with Natalia, She was just letting us know she was coming in a few minutes earlier than expected. (you have to understand, this woman is a work-a-holic) She came in wearing a pair of second skin skinny jeans, a loose Tshirt wih the P.L.U.S.H. logo on the front and a pair of flip flops. Even dressed in a normal everyday look, she still stands out in the crowd. SM: Whatâ€™s happening gorgeous? NATALIA: Not too much, just out here reppinâ€™ it for the ladies, you know how we do?! (With a big smile on her face.) SM: I have heard some very interesting things you got going on right now. A modeling group is one of the first things that comes to mind. NATALIA: Oh hell yes!! P.L.U.S.H. is destined for greatness all the way. Beautiful ladies that are driven to be the best at what the do, yet keeping it plush, as I like to say. SM: Your music has transformed into nothing but hits. I am hearing you on a lot of other artist tracks lately. Are you setting trends now?
NATALIA: Of course I am. When it comes to all of us that are hungry, we come together and work!! SM: We were surprised when we found out that you and Stylz had hooked back up for the model shooting again. NATALIA: Yeah, Stylz definitely gets the job done. He works as much as I do. And that’s saying a lot. He and I have some serious creations that will be released soon. Everyone is gonna love it!! SM: I guess that means you will be coming back for another issue in the future then? NATALIA: Of course!! I love working with you guys. SM: I gotta ask this for the fellas. How do you keep your body looking like WwoowW?! NATALIA: It’s fairly easy, not that most would believe me. OK here is the secret... (The whole studio just got quiet as hell.) ...I EAT!! (With a big smile!!)
For real. I love to eat. But I work it off after I have been lazy for a few hours. And I don’t eat then climb into bed. That’s just asking it.
SM: Anything you would care to say to your fans and friends who may be reading this? NATALIA: Itâ€™s two thousand eleven and we all are doing big things. Hustle, get your grin on. Donâ€™t stop for nothing and no one. Whether it be music, modeling or life, keep moving forward. And no matter what happens, KEEP IT P.L.U.S.H.!! Quick talk inverview by: C.K. Maverick

1,200 Facebook Friendsâ€”Really? Some people seem to collect online friends just to see how big they can make their number. But is that real friendship?
by Amanda Stiver For some people, how many Facebook "friends" they have seems to be a status symbolâ€”or a competition! But how many friends do most people really have?
Born for adversity A recent study conducted by Nivea found that the average Briton has only three true friends through the course of life. It may be a few more or less, but these are friends with whom we are in fairly constant contact throughout a lifetime. There are other people we think of as friends, but we often lose track of one another over time and distance. The study found that of these three friends, one is typically a best friend from childhood, another a close friend who is related and, finally, a friend made during higher education or at work ("Average Briton 'Has Only Three True Friends,'" Telegraph.co.uk, April 15, 2010). These are the people who stick with us through thick and thin. "A friend loves at all times,
and a brother is born for adversity," goes the proverb (Proverbs 17:17). Some friends are like family, and some family members are dear friends. This kind of friendship sees us through pain and joy. It can be augmented by connecting on social networking sites, but true friendship also needs a dose of face-to-face contact, a helping hand during times of need, frequent phone calls to catch up and chat, and a letter or card now and then.
The best friends To that list of three close friends should be added two more. These friends are shared by many and are worth more than all other human friends in the world! Is it too bold to think of God the Father and Jesus Christ as friends? Noâ€”because God extended the hand of friendship first. God has many friends, but perhaps most striking among them is Abraham. Known as the friend of God, he kept God's commandments and believed God would be true to His Word when He said, in effect, "Move and I will bless you" (see James 2:23; Genesis 12:1-3). This kind of trust is an important aspect of friendship. Fair-weather friends who abandon you leave a lot of hurt in their wake. Jesus Christ extends His friendship to His followers. This friendship has a condition attached: obedience. But the generosity that rewards obedience is phenomenalâ€”the regard of the Supreme Being and, eventually, eternal life.
You can pick your friends Family members are decided from birth, but friends are chosen throughout life. Choosing wisely is important because some people inspire us to do better and improve, while others drag us down. The book of Proverbs warns against choosing the wrong type of companions: "My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent" (1:10). Being a friend to those in need is a good thing, but trying to reform those who continuously and willingly sin will likely pull us down.
Friendly tips for Facebook Using Facebook to share news, issue invitations, catch up with friends
and post modest photos is a positive way to keep in touch. But sharing too much personal information, spreading gossip and rumors, or venting about other people on such sites is not good. Never say anything online that couldn't or shouldn't be said to someone in a face-to-face conversation. It is vital to treat others only as we would wish to be treated ourselves (Matthew 7:12).
Keep in touch Friendships are a precious gift from God. God the Father and Jesus Christ extend friendship to us. True, close, lifelong friends are few and far between, but throughout our lives we can make friends. Growing friendships is like growing plants. If you don't feed and water the plants, they die. If we don't feed a friendship with frequent communication and outgoing concern and water it with some face time once in a while, we can lose a friend. Wildly adding Facebook contacts isn't the way to make real friends, but social networking sites, properly used, can help us cultivate healthy friendships.
