6 Best Detox Waters For Weight Loss And Body Cleanse

Did you know that water makes up 95 percent of the human brain and 60 to 70 percent of the entire body? Hydration is essential for both mental acuity and physical performance. Sometimes, it can be difficult to get your eight glasses of water per day. Perhaps your lifestyle/diet has included increased levels of alcohol and caffeine? The detrimental effects of these toxins can be reversed with increased hydration.

Detox waters are great ways to make water more enjoyable. And, they have extra health benefits as well. It’s really simple – just fill up a container or glass with water and add nutritious ingredients. Leave overnight to distill. You’ll find that a lot of everyday fruits and veggies, and also kitchen cupboard staples, can easily transform humble H2O into your personalized detox solution. Here are the top picks:


Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin c and enzymes. Nothing really tops the natural cleansing properties of citric acid. Lemon has been associated with boosting the liver’s function and tissue regeneration. This means great things for your metabolism and you’ll be radiating with healthy skin.


The humble cucumber is one of the most hydrating of all vegetables – it’s mostly made up of water. It’s great for your physical health as it contains the minerals magnesium, potassium, silicon, and sulfur (those last two are particularly great for stimulating hair growth). Also, it’s very high in vitamins C and B, working synonymously to promote good general health and energy levels.


We all know strawberries are a luscious, tasty fruit. They provide a great flavour while also packing a punch of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Actually, it’s the phytonutrients in strawberries (that gives them their distinctive flavour and smell) that provide protective, disease-preventing compounds. Strawberries also have been proven to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Cranberries/cranberry juice

Cranberry is perhaps best known for its ability to fight and preventing urinary tract infections. This berry can also improve immune function and lower cholesterol. Cranberry juice is a lot more convenient and easy to acquire in a supermarket than the berries in whole form. The berries themselves are often referred to as a “superfood” for their extremely high nutrient and antioxidant density.

Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a pantry staple but it’s also a very powerful detox supplement. It contains pectin, which is great for intestinal health. Just one or two tablespoons mixed in water can work well to reduce bloating and water retention. It’s also brilliant in combating indigestion. The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar can also work to suppress appetite and increase metabolism.

Cayenne pepper

Cayenne pepper has long been used therapeutically by many societies throughout the world. It stimulates circulation and helps to neutralise acidity. It works hard to get the digestive tract moving. This means increased metabolism and weight loss through the assimilation and elimination of toxins. Helping the body to sweat and to increase lymphatic and digestive rhythms, cayenne pepper in your morning beverage provides a great total body detox.

Rising Star Spotlight: Introducing The Stunning Jamie Villamor

Jamie Villamor admits that she has always been a bit of a tomboy. She had two brothers and five uncles growing up so she was never really into any girly stuff. She loves sports and being outdoors and in fact, she started training in Tae-Kwon-Do when she was just five years old. She eventually earned her second-degree black belt at the age of 13 and ultimately she became a Tae-Kwon-Do world champion! She also got offered her first modeling job right after she won her first national title.

StarCentral Magazine recently sat down with Jamie to find out more about her journey to entrepreneurship and here’s what went down:

Could you please provide background about yourself and how were you actually ‘discovered’?

I trained in mixed martial arts from the ages of 5 -18 – mainly in Tae-Kwon-Do. I am a 2nd-degree black belt and I got offered my first modeling job when I won my first national title at the age of 7. I did walk in a runway show for Macy’s at the age of 5 but I wasn’t a big fan of fashion shows at the time.

What does it mean to you to be a model?

I think modeling is a lot harder than a lot of people realize. I love being able to create so I’m always grateful when I’m able to work with other creative individuals. I love seeing other people’s visions and being able to share mine on certain projects as well.

What sort of person usually follows you? Who’s your main audience?

It used to be primarily men, however, recently I’ve had a large jump in female followers inquiring about firearm safety and wanting to learn how to properly train in firearms which I love – I’m actually a huge advocate for protecting our 2nd amendment.

What’s the biggest challenge to modeling?

I think traveling can often be a challenge and blessing in the same sense. Often I’m so blessed to visit so many amazing spots and see different cultures yet time seems to fly by and it can be difficult to be present and really appreciate the moment. It’s a go-go-go with not a lot of downtime before we are off to the next location.

Have you always wanted to be in the modeling industry?

No, modeling was not something I sought out. I’m more of a tomboy so I’ve always felt it was a little more difficult for me to fit in.

What’s your personal mission in life?

My personal mission is to continue to grow and give back as much as I possibly can. I want to visit new places and explore this amazing world we live in. There’s just so much to see that it just gets me so excited.

What has been the most memorable experience of your career so far?

I’ve had so many memorable experiences it’s hard to narrow it down to one. My favourite is honestly having the pleasure and opportunity to work with so many talented people. Mishawn W was one of the last photographers I worked with, he shoots for Guess, and not only is he extremely talented but his personality was so incredibly genuine. Listening to people’s stories and how they got to where they are today is just so inspiring at times.

Who have been the most interesting people you’ve met so far?

I’ve signed a few NDA’s in my time so best to not disclose! lol

How active are you on social media?

Pretty active, I do my best to respond to all my comments. DM’s (direct messages) are harder for me so I tend to just stick to the comments.

What is your favourite social media platform?

Instagram for sure.

Are you currently in a relationship or are you single? How did your relationship cope during the quarantine period?

My quarantine period started in a relationship but it came to an end mid Quarantine. I think it can be a difficult transition for people who are not used to spending that much time together. We had a long-distance relationship before so it was definitely harder; however, I’m so grateful for my journey with him. It has been a positive transition for me. I’m such a lover/ explorer so I enjoyed spending time and sharing adventures with someone but I am loving my ‘me time’ now.


Meet The Model Behind The August 2020 Issue Of Model & Mode: The Stunning Maia Fuchs

Maia Fuchs is a half Australian and half Israeli model who was initially doing TPF (Time for print) shoots with various photographers once in a while when she came across a pageant called Miss Auto D’Elegance – it was looking for contestants last year. She decided to apply and she actually made it as a finalist for Miss Auto D’Elegance 2019 where she eventually ended up placing 4th overall. From then on, she got scouted by the CEO of a modeling agency who was in the audience at the time and she has been modeling full time ever since.

Model & Mode Magazine recently caught up with Maia to discuss her journey in the modeling ndustry and here’s what went down:

Tell us your full name and something about yourself

My name is Maia Fuchs and I was originally born in Australia. I lived in England for a few years, after which I then moved and grew up in America, and now I’m back home in Sydney. I live here with my mom, dad, brother, 2 pet birds, and my gorgeous pet greyhound.

How did you get into the modeling industry? How were you actually ‘discovered’?

I was doing a few TFP shoots every now and then just for fun when I saw that the pageant, Miss Auto D’Elegance, was looking for models. I ended up applying and making it into the finals where I placed 4th. From there I got scouted by an agency that was in the audience at the time and I’ve been modeling full time ever since.

What do you like most about being a model?

There are so many talented and passionate people in this industry and it’s just such a pleasure getting to meet and work with every single one of them. You always come out of a shoot with tons of helpful tips and friendships.

The downside to being a model?

It’s a whole lifestyle. If you really want to be the best model you can be then you need to make sure you’re eating healthy, getting enough sleep, exercising daily, and just overall taking care of your mental health. If those are not things you normally do it can be quite difficult to change your whole routine around to add them in.

What has been the most memorable experience of being in the modeling industry so far?

Last February I was flown to Bali, Indonesia for the Australian Supermodel Of The Year competition. It was so amazing getting to meet all the talented models from all over Australia and being able to exchange all of our different modeling stories, all the while being in Bali and learning about the world of fashion from various industry professionals.

Who have been the most interesting people you’ve met so far?

When I was in Bali the ASOTY team brought in Esma Volder, the current Miss World titleholder, and she was absolutely an inspiration. She is an amazing spokesperson for the company Bully Zero and just overall an amazing role model. It was truly inspiring to hear her speak about what she stands for and how she got to this point in her life.

What has been the most valuable lesson you’ve learned while in the modeling industry. This can be about the industry or yourself.

That everyone is beautiful and its good to be unique and different. I used to get bullied for my pale skin, freckles, and red hair which is now all of the things that help me stand out in a casting and book jobs. Modeling has really helped me appreciate all of my “flaws” and that even though I may look different I am still beautiful.

Working in an industry whose only emphasis is on the outside characteristics of a person, how have you stayed grounded?

I like to constantly take myself away from work and put myself out in nature. I always go for hikes and walks with my dog to remind myself that there is so much more to life than just what I’m doing or working on in that current moment.

Is your family supportive of you being in the modeling industry?

Absolutely! It was their idea for me to give modeling a go. Before I got my license they used to drive me to every shoot as well. I am so grateful for them for giving me this opportunity, I would have never been able to start without all their help.

What are your future plans? Inside your career or out of it.

I’d love to work as a full-time fashion model one day. It would be an absolute dream of mine to be featured in Vogue magazine.

Rising Star Spotlight: Introducing The Beautiful Brielle Streater

Known online for her style and looks today, most people don’t know that Brielle Streater actually endured seven years of intense schoolyard bullying before she became who she is now. “After enduring seven years of severe schoolyard bullying, and much deep thinking, I made the spontaneous decision to study in courses I never would have imagined, resulting in the start of my business and the commencement of a very long road trip throughout Australia,” she revealed. Although she went through such a heartbreaking ordeal, it paved the way for her to start a business. This painful experience led to a very long road trip throughout Australia where she was able to heal me from the scars of bullying and also regain her confidence. In that time she became a promotional model and an influencer with a substantial following on Instagram and her travels also opened many other doors for her. In fact, she even became a National Youth Ambassador and Spokesperson for an Anti-Bullying Advocate and Organisation called Angels Hope.

StarCentral Magazine recently caught up with Brielle Streater to discuss her journey to building her brand and her business and here’s what went down:

Tell us your full name and something about yourself.

My name is Brielle Streater, and at age 18 in 2014 after completing my HSC I chose not to attend schoolies and found myself sitting on the 34th floor in a lawyer’s office learning how to commence my own business and the trademarking of a business name. It wasn’t my initial goal for I had been accepted into Early Entry Policing and Justice Studies at Western Sydney University and also studies in Theatre Set Design. After enduring seven years of severe schoolyard bullying, and much deep thinking, I made the spontaneous decision to study in courses I never would have imagined, resulting in the start of my business and the commencement of a very long road trip throughout Australia, presently sitting on the 485,000kms through Australia since 2014. Travelling Australia did a lot for me, it healed me from the scars of bullying, it gave me back confidence, I explored everything about Australia from history to nature to the beauty of the people, and in that time either studied online or came back to Sydney to study part-time, and also work casually as a promotional model to help fund my travels. I also built my business up and whatever money I made from content creation went into my travels. My travels became my place to capture my images as I fell completely in love with the landscapes of the Outback and country regions. it gave me opportunities to meet so many different people all traveling for a reason, all had a story, inspiring me endlessly. I commenced using social media, largely Instagram for sharing my travels in 2014. It was through sharing my images that my work was used by some of Australia’s larger companies, and some smaller ones in the US. It opened many doors, and in 2015 I was interviewed by a local radio on my travels and what led me there. That radio interview was picked up by an Anti-Bullying Advocate and Organisation Founder called Angels Hope. I became a National Youth Ambassador and Spokesperson for them from 2015 – 2018. That wonderful amazing opportunity led me to meet inspirational people and other organizations in Anti-Bullying, and I am now an Ambassador to a small NZ Anti-Bullying Organization called Suzy H Child Advocate and Anti-bullying Foundation; The Phoenix Rising Foundation (Australian Foundation just birthing); and advocate for Anti-Violence Movement Enough is Enough. I remain a firm follower of the work of Angel’s Hope, and also Dolly’s Dream.

My travels united not only my love of Australia but opportunities to speak and share about Anti-Bullying. Over those years I studied diplomas and a few certificates in creative industries: Film, Screen and Media; Photography and Imaging; Digital Media Marketing; Performance Theatre; Live Theatre Production; Broadcasting; Costume Design; Writing; and varying short courses in screen and media at Nida. Though with the influx of photographers and content creators the photography world became challenging, thus, I was pushed to another direction. With my growing love of philanthropy work and interest in Anti-Bullying, my ultimate career goals completely changed. I am now halfway through a degree in Psychotherapy specialising in Art Therapy. I still continue my business part-time and plan to continue to do so.

My interests outside study are anything outdoors. I particularly love horse riding, four-wheel driving, car drifting, deep-sea fishing, boating, PlayStation 4, Cosplay, my travels and a very deep love for Australia and Ireland (family). I also study the Irish Language at the Sydney Irish Language School and love being involved with their activities.

I have grown up in a family with a lot of cancer and learned to always turn the negatives into positives, to flip it, and I still do this today.

How did you get into the modeling industry? How were you actually ‘discovered’?

I was introduced into modeling by my grandmother, who was a model herself when she was young. She had me attending the different courses with June Dally-Watkins starting at age 14. I was offered several opportunities though I knocked them all back, and it was not until I was working as a photographer and I was approached by companies to stand in front of the camera instead of behind that things changed. This led to some very talented Australian photographers doing shoots with me and one thing led to another.

What do you like most about being a model?

Modeling to me is an opportunity to bring forward female empowerment; to show those girls who are being bullied, we can all stand back up in whatever way we wish and keep going. Despite words, we are all beautiful and you need to be proud of who you are. Modeling has also enabled me to meet many interesting people, from all different careers. It has helped me immensely with confidence and led me to the wonderful world of pageantry in which I held the crown and traveled to the US as Miss Australia International 2018.

The downside to being a model?

It is not an easy career due to the large numbers already in the field or trying to break in.

What has been the most memorable experience of being in the modeling industry so far?

My most memorable experience was modeling for the iconic Australian company Akubra. The Akubra hat was something I had dreamed of owning since a young girl and I finally purchased one at the start of my travels in 2014. I now own 12 Akubras and try to always have them in my social media shots. To be featured in their marketing here and overseas, and their calendars were the biggest honour and something I will forever be proud of.

Who have been the most interesting people you’ve met so far?

In my travels, I have had the opportunities of meeting many famous people such as actors, authors, race car drivers, politicians and I have loved listening to their life stories. I’ve met relatives of some of our infamous bushrangers, University historians, to miners and farmers sharing stories of despair of living on the land.

In modeling, pageantry, promotional modeling, and cosplay modeling I have been fascinated by the many people who have kept going, either the model, the photographer, to those involved in event management and magazines. To pinpoint one particular person is difficult as so many inspire me. Three photographers who have stood out to me as I love listening to their experiences and find them inspirational are Marc Skinner, Andrew Donato, and Jolanta Morgan.

In philanthropy, one man…Ken Marslew the Founder of Enough is Enough which is an Anti-Violence Movement. I could listen to him speak all day. He’s the most inspirational man as he never gives up on what he believes in. I hope I will be like him one day.

What has been the most valuable lesson you’ve learned while in the modeling industry. This can be about the industry or yourself.

I strongly learned to believe in yourself and if you slip up, keep going. In the US when I represented Australia as Miss Australia International, I was extremely nervous, I was just released from a week stay in hospital with kidney problems the day before flying out. I doubted myself immensely; not feeling well left me worried about how things would go. Though once there, meeting the other girls who were also models, everything flowed, even when I had to publically speak on Anti-Bullying in a dress that no longer fit me so I kept slipping down. You eventually get into the swing of it, your worries disappear and you walk away knowing you gave it your best. Modeling has enhanced my confidence, my self-belief and the lesson of just getting in and giving it your best.

Working in an industry whose only emphasis is on the outside characteristics of a person, how have you stayed grounded?

I have stayed grounded, very much, as staying true to yourself and who you are, are the most important aspects. If you can bring that through in your work I believe it’s important as it presents your natural character and individuality.

Is your family supportive of you being in the modeling industry?

Yes, very much, someone often comes with me to the different shoots. We are a very close family and they are very supportive of all I do. For that, I’ve very grateful.

What are your future plans? Inside your career or out of it.

My future plans involve continuing my business and working eventually in the field of Psychotherapy (art therapy). I have two areas of interest – either children and youth with autism or individuals in correctional services. I hope to continue my modeling as long as more opportunities arise.

Rising Star Spotlight: Introducing The Gorgeous Vindy Krejci

Vindy Krejčí initially never had any plans of becoming a model, but when opportunity knocked on her door – she decided to take a chance, and now she couldn’t be happier with her decision. Vindy is a half Vietnamese and half Czech model who’s currently based in the Czech Republic. She was fifteen when she appeared in her first fashion show and she loved the experience so much that she went on to appear in more fashion shows. Besides modeling, Vindy has also done quite well in the pageant world, she won the title Miss Karkulka Mácha in 2015, she placed 3rd runner up in Miss Caddy 2014 pageant and she also placed top 10 in the national beauty pageant, Miss Czech Republic.

Model & Mode Magazine recently caught up with Vindy to discuss her journey in the modeling industry and here’s what went down:

 Tell us your name and something about yourself?

My name is Vindy Krejčí, I’m 22 years old and I’m based in the Czech Republic, where I’ve lived all my life. I’m half Vietnamese and half Czech and I’m currently studying in university.

In the year 2014, I started building my modeling portfolio, I was 16 years old at the time. I was working with a few modeling agencies, however, I was still a freelancer. I’ve never dreamt about becoming a model, it just happened and now I really love my job. To be around creative people and watch how they make something amazing together is great! But I knew its a time-limited business and I wanted to also focus on building my skills and experiences in various fields. As time went I eventually got an offer to work in modeling and production agency called FA FASHIONABLE.

I also took part in several beauty pageants in my country where I was fortunate enough to have had success. I won the Miss Karkulka Mácha 2015 pageant and I placed 3rd runner up in Miss Caddy 2014. In 2016, I placed top 10 in the national beauty pageant, Miss Czech Republic.

In 2017 I got an offer to represent Vietnam in an international beauty pageant called Miss Global 2017. Regardless of my height, I placed in the top 20 and won the title Miss Global Photogenic.

What does it mean to you to be a model?

Opportunity. Being a model is flexible – it gives me freedom. What I like the most about being a model is that each project is different. Different styling, different visage, another team of incredibly creative people. I enjoy it every time I get a new transformation. On this basis, I present the “personality” they have created from me. I also enjoy the opportunity to travel and work with people from all over the world.

What sort of person usually follows you? Who’s your main audience?

According to statistics, primarily men. As for the nationality and country where my followers come from, the Czech Republic still leads. And I try to keep it that way. Most clients who contact me to collaborate whether it’s for a campaign or just for collaboration on Instagram want to reach the Czech audience. My followers also include women and young girls my age. They often ask me how I succeed in modeling despite my height, and support me in my work. I always feel responsible for what I put on my profile and I always think of a way that it can affect my followers

What’s the biggest challenge to modeling?

I would say that anyone who wants to get into modeling must be durable, have healthy self-esteem and be balanced with him/herself. He or she needs to be able to handle stress and have thick skin. I think “commercial” models have it a little easier than fashion models. Their magic is made up of their entire personality, their face, and their character. And so they can be forgiven a few centimeters at the waist for example.

Have you always wanted to be in the modeling industry?

No, not really. As a child, I heard negative things about the modeling industry. But when I was fifteen and I appeared in my first fashion show, I started to think differently. When I did my first catwalk, I suddenly had the urge to join more shows. I eventually met an amazing, creative man who motivated me with his story and personality. Today he is my future fiance, Luděk Šmehlík.

What’s your personal mission in life?

Be a role model for my children and other women. I’m not a feminist, I’m not a careerist, and I’m not a housewife either – I’m a bit of everything. We women are very capable, hardworking and imaginative. Our empathy and intuition make us unique. And I admire every woman who can do what she loves and follow her heart.

What has been the most memorable experience of your career so far?

The most memorable experience of my career was participating in the international beauty pageant, Miss Global in Cambodia. It was in 2017 and since I was half Vietnamese, I represented Vietnam. I was truly honoured to represent one of my nationalities. There were over 60 finalists from all over the world and the organizers took great care of us. I didn’t see it as a competition, I saw it more like an experience. I was myself and it paid off. I won Miss Global Photogenic and ranked among the top 20.

Who have been the most interesting people you’ve met so far?

Definitely my man! There’s also pageant coach Mommy G and choreographer Chieko Hidaka, whom I met in Miss Global. Their personal charm is unreal. Both were strict but very cordial at the same time. I’m very grateful for all the help they gave me.

What will you advise other models who may wish to follow your footsteps?

Be yourself and overcome your fear. Don’t be afraid to try new things because you never know where the wind might take you. Work on your portfolio and show that that you can be malleable.

What are your future plans? Inside your career or out of it.

It may sound a little lax, but so far, it has always worked out even though I never planned anything. So I just want to let things flow.

This Stunner Has Been Dubbed As The ‘World’s Sexiest Athlete’ And For Good Reason

German track star Alica Schmidt has been dubbed as the world’s sexiest athlete and once you see her photos you’ll know exactly why.

The 21-year-old German track star had been training for quite some time so she can take part in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic to compete in the 400m event, that is, until the COVID-19 pandemic stopped the world in its tracks.

Schmidt got into the spotlight after she and her teammates won the silver medal in the 4×400 relay at the European Athletics Under-20 Championships in 2017. She then won a bronze medal in the same event in the U23 European Championship last year. She currently has a whopping 700,000 plus followers on Instagram and for good reason.

Check out some of her photos below courtesy of Alica Schmidt’s Instagram account.

Rising Star Spotlight: Introducing The Stunning Melanie Zehner

Before Melanie Zehner got into modeling and graced catalogs and the cover of a magazine, she was a girl living in a small town in Austria. Melanie was in a shopping center when a chance encounter led to her big break. She was only 1o when she was spotted by a shopping center’s marketing coordinator. She was approached and asked if she wanted to be the face of a new magazine. She eventually got the gig and this encounter piqued her interest in modeling. From there she went on to become a professional model and she has even done modeling internationally.

Model & Mode Magazine recently caught up with Melanie Zehner to discuss her journey in the modeling industry and here’s what went down:

Could you please provide background about yourself and how were you actually ‘discovered’?

I was originally born in Austria, I grew up in a little whimsical town with lovely natural surroundings. I have amazing parents who taught me a value system that I’ve always stayed true to. When I was about 10 years old I went to a shopping center with my mum and a lady from the shopping center’s marketing department approached me and asked me if I wanted to be the face of the new magazine – this was in summer and the mood of the magazine was “everything that you need for school.” My dad was part of a photography club that’s why I had no problems posing in front of the camera. In fact, ever since I was born he always had his camera next to me. That’s how I got my foot into the modeling industry.

What does it mean to you to be a model?

For me, it means a lot. You represent something so you should be a role model which means you have to work very hard on yourself.

What’s the biggest challenge to modeling?

Not to give up because there will always be people who will criticize you a lot! It doesn’t really matter how beautiful you are. After attending several casting calls, you will honestly feel like the ugliest person in the world.

Have you always wanted to be in the modeling industry?

I was always too shy. That’s why I got trained as a hairdresser and makeup artist – I got my master’s degree 3 years ago. But even then I never lost my passion for modeling – so when I was 21 I started to work very professionally as a model.

What’s your personal mission in life?

To create a life filled with love and adventure. I want to feel as intensely about life as possible. All kinds of feelings. I want to be able to run my imagination free so my deepest self can develop creatively. I have a gift for recognizing people and their stories and I keep my thoughts in stories, in diaries, and my memory. I’m a lioness because I don’t stop dreaming and learning. I believe in myself, I trust myself and am proud of myself.

What has been the most memorable experience of your career so far?

When I got booked for a video production in Thailand. Another unforgettable experience was when I saw myself in a catalog which I’ve known since my childhood – because everybody in Austria gets this catalog.

Who have been the most interesting people you’ve met so far?

Oliver stone (Regisseur&film producer) and in Silicon Valley, I met Steve Jobs’ best friend which was really interesting.

What will you advise other models who may wish to follow your footsteps?

Stay true to yourself and don’t do any jobs just because of the money.

What are your future plans? Inside your career or out of it.

I want to work on an amazing project with high-profile photographers and I want to organize workshops all around the world. Outside my career, I would love to have a little family in the next 5-10 years.

How “Glee” Star Naya Rivera Used Her Final Moments Alive to Save Her Son

Editorial credit: s_bukley / Shutterstock.com

During the recent press conference at Lake Piru, officials from Ventura County Sheriff’s Office eventually confirmed that the body they had recovered was, in fact, that of actress Naya Rivera. According to Buzzfeed, Rivera had apparently rented a pontoon boat on Wednesday, July 8. But then her 4-year-old son, Josey, was later found all alone and asleep on the boat by another person who was also on the lake. He had a life jacket on which is believed to have been Rivera’s.

Sheriff Bill Ayub finally had some answers for Naya Rivera’s family and he officially said, “Today our search teams recovered a body in the lake. Based on the location where the body was found, physical characteristics of the body, clothing found on the body, and the physical condition of the body – as well as the absence of any other persons reported missing in the area – we are confident that the body found is that of Naya Rivera.”

During a press conference, The Sheriff also revealed that they believe Rivera’s boat which was unanchored at the time began drifting away – she wanted to save her son’s life but she couldn’t save hers. He said, “The idea perhaps being that the boat started drifting, it was unanchored, and that she mustered enough energy to get her son back onto the boat, but not enough to save herself.”

Ayub further revealed that Naya’s four-year-old son was able to help detectives piece together what really happened as he recalled their final moments together. Ayub said: “We know from speaking with her son that he and Naya swam in the lake together at some point during their journey. it was during that time that she’s son described being helped into the boat by Naya, who boosted him into the boat from behind.” He told the investigators that “he looked back and saw her disappear under the surface of the water.”

Our hearts go out to Naya Rivera and her family during this extremely difficult time.

4 Fabulous Style Tips Every Model Should Know

Knowing how to look stylish and chic every time you step out of the house is a skill every model should have. Now if you experience difficulties with this, we’ve got you covered with four essential fashion tips. These tips are fashion foundations you can build upon to become the next trendsetter!

If you have a special event coming up or you simply would love to look good daily, follow the tips below to create a fabulous and stylish wardrobe.

1. Pair prints and patterns with plain apparels

The first thing you should know when picking out outfits is that prints and patterns should not be paired together. Instead, pair patterned apparel with plain colours. For example, you can wear a striped blouse with black pants/skirts and a polka-dotted skirt with a yellow blouse.

A combination of prints and patterns is riotous and the biggest fashion mistake anyone can make so make sure you avoid them!

2. Don’t be scared of bright colours

While dark colours like black, grey, dark blue, and dark green are safe colours in fashion, wearing them repeatedly can get boring and force you to blend into the crowd. So minimize your use of these colours and go for more colourful apparel like yellow, pink, white, red, and light blue. Bright colours are exciting and make you more approachable. If you don’t want to attract too much attention to yourself, you can combine light and dark-coloured apparel.

3. Make sure an outfit fits perfectly

When shopping for new clothes, make sure you choose outfits that fit perfectly. Don’t buy clothes that are too tight or too big. Both errors can ruin the look you’re trying to create with your outfit. Clothes that fit perfectly make you look smart and stylish so before purchasing an outfit, make sure it’s the perfect fit.

4. Accessorise

The impact of accessories on an outfit cannot be over-emphasized. Accessories enhance your look stylishly and make you stand out. So fill your wardrobe with as many bags, earrings, bracelets, belts, scarves, and necklaces as you can afford. Don’t forget to accessorize moderately for a better impact.

While fashion trends change almost as frequently as we blink, these basic tips will keep you on top of the trends at all times. So experiment with bright colours, don’t pair prints with patterns, make sure your clothes fit perfectly, and accessorize for a trendy and stylish look.
