Are you a model ?
Are you a social media influencer ?
What are you influencing?
Body positivity? Fitness and healthy lifestyles ? Are you inspiring positive change and realistic goals? Are you supporting your fellow peers? Local business or involved in any charity work?
“Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, 'What's in it for me?'
Models are often reduced to their appearance: how tall they are, how toned they are, how thin they are. It's often forgotten that they do more than just walk the runway, there are also a few negative stigmas associated with models being known as selfish, narcissistic, and uneducated. It’s believed that many models use good looks to get ahead and aren’t familiar with today’s societal issues.
But what if models became real advocates for positive change and leadership development.
Models being “role models”
For decades, leggy supermodels were the ultimate ideal of feminine beauty
But recently a shift toward "real" beauty is challenging American conventions. The idea is that women don't need to be classified as models to be beautiful.
#goddesstribe is a new initiative to do just that
I want to create an intimate space where women could gather to network and share resources—inspiring each other to revive old goals, make new ones and move towards them while giving back
I am looking for models that have a heart of gold to match that gorgeousexterior.
Instead of using social media to influence unattainable standards of beauty, lusting over cars and material objects that won’t give anyone any true happiness. Why post meaningless content when you can promote heart felt soul-aligned messages that seek to Empower people to live their best lives.
If you want to promote real positive change
Join the goddess tribe initiative, we are looking for several brands, photographers, videographers, designers, artist and more to help
spread the world of positive influence.
the Modelwearhouse has dedicated this next year to giving back as much as possible. All events will be charity and community driven!

SPECIAL THANKS TO ANDRES AQUINO & LAURA MOSSS
Here are a few reasons why you should attend NYCFW
Photography by Joel Domingue & Truluvmedia
There are many benefits of blogging together, but the best part has to be the fact that we get to spend time together.Another bonus is being able to bounce ideas off of one another. and always having someone I know I can share my views without critical judgment. But for the most part, it’s just being able to experience everything that comes with blogging with your favorite human. (event invitations, partnerships, press trips. Swag etc.)
When we aren’t trying to “build” Truluv Media we are working our normal jobs.
Sometimes I don’t give my boyfriend enough credit. He works as a Cell tower hand technician. ( Which means he climbs and performs maintenance on those super tall poles you always see on the side of the road to ensure your phones and radios are works properly.)
Aside from having one of the deadliest jobs in the world he also works about 70+ hours a week where we often spend weeks apart due to travel. (It sucks)
I work as a full time bartender,
part-time model scout rep, and in between coordinating fashion shows, and maintaining a somewhat relevant my modeling career I also write for street fashion magazine!
When we are working we give it 110% (i.e. 12+ hour days…blogging,editing music,venue searches,investors,sponsors, branding proposals, revenue generation, networking, keywords coding, etc), all these practices can all be just as time consuming as creating content..for most,
Not for us! Luckily we never find ourselves bored! Truluv Media began in july 2016 as a media LLC specializing in photography, recording and event planning. Our brand is to live with purpose. If it isn't true, then it isn't real we maintain a strong emphasis on giving back to the community and supporting our local and emerging creatives!!
In six short months we have hosted, planned and coordinated 3 fashion shows as well as 3 professional photoshoot outs
We have been bless to cover events as press with our first being full backstage coverage of NYFW, Las vegas SEMA SHOW, MISS INTERNATIONAL FASHION WEEK, Wearable Art 12 dunedin, St pete art and fashion week, cocktails and couture, and even smaller perks like being apart of local community activities and writing reviews for places such as orlando escape room, Tampa murder house, hotel suites, several local dining eateris and our favorite south beach hot spots
take a quick look below of what we have been up to. if you want more just take a look around the blog! all support is appreciated!

Motorcyclists have given us much more than the iconic black leather jacket.
From gentleman’s leisure activity to rebel trademark, a history of the motorcycle trends has had profoundly huge effects on our culture and fashion. From Tweed suites to biker jackets, from safety goggles to aviators some things just remain timeless
We’ve all seen the stereotypical biker, 6 ft tall, tats on both arms, biceps the size of Europe, leather waistcoat, boots, complete with leather biker wallets with chains
Most motorcycle riders wear leather – lots of leather. Boots, chaps, vests, gloves, chain wallets, and leather jackets. The reason behind all this leather is not for looks, and it's not to appear threatening. It's all about protection
there is a saying in motorcycle culture that there are two types of riders: Those who have crashed, and those who haven't crashed yet. The Moto style trend essentially lies in the between the threshold of safety and functionality. Even after decades, biker fashion is still considered quintessentially cool. A timeless look that came to represent individualism –and this irresistible spirit lives on in the work of some of today’s top designers Influenced by the freedom and resilience of the riders and the sleek design of motorcycles themselves
Goggles or eye protection is often the law, Think what happens if a bug hits you in the eye at 65 mph . Today you see most riders sporting stylish aviators or helmets with eye protection.
From rivets, grommets and studs, all typical of biker gear, even black lipstick and bandanas are everyday looks for some .
Biker fashion is really coming into its own especially for bikers that want functional protective gear; but gear that looks just as good on the bike as it does off it
There is a reason for everything the everyday biker wears. Sure, it looks cool and there is some really beautiful riding gear available but safety is always number one.

Strength of character, strength of mind, and strength of purpose. As the woman of today embraces her inner Boss, why not reference both yourself and your purpose as the Pillar of the future?
Why did you become a fashion designers? Actually, fashion is one of my God-given talents! I have always loved everything fashion. My friends and family always consult with me for advice and fashion ideas. I always get compliments on my style and outfits.
Can you explain queen boss? The mission of Queen Boss is to represent the evolution of womanhood as we transition into an age where femininity equates to strength. Strength of character, strength of mind, and strength of purpose. As the woman of today embraces her inner Boss, why not reference both yourself and your purpose as the Pillar of the future? We as women are leaders as well as nurturers, we stand in the face of adversity and with a commanding voice and bold heart we proudly proclaim that we are the keepers of our own destiny. Queen Boss is the very embodiment of this truth. Wear us with pride, for that is the foundation from which true womanhood is built.
How do your designs set you apart? My designs are diverse I want to appeal to all cultures and races while promoting a positive message, empowerment, and unity. My desire is that when someone purchases my brand they feel the love I have poured into each item and receive the positive energy
Where can we find your designs? Currently my designs are on my website shamaraelle.com, I also make deliveries for Orlando customers.
The SEMA Show is the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world. It draws the industry's brightest minds and hottest products to one place, the Las Vegas Convention Center.
What It’s Like to Attend the Insane, Awesome, and Closed-to-the-Public SEMA Show.
The annual SEMA show in Las Vegas is technically an automotive trade event but has evolved into a no-holds-barred display of tuning and customization genius. There are always hundreds of lifted trucks, slammed imports, and engine-swapped muscle cars. Yet there's far more to the show than that—the parties, the celebrities, the high-octane demos, the excess of it all. (And the Rascal scooters. Seriously, we saw a guy from Road & Track on one.) Unfortunately, SEMA isn't open to the public, but that doesn't mean you can't experience what it's like to attend the craziest show on the automotive calendar. Enjoy!
As with anything, don’t expect it to go smoothly. Lots of people, lots of expectations – be flexible with your time and be patient. It’s going to take extra time to meet the people you want to, see the cars you want to see and the products you want to buy. Everyone is there for the same reason so keep that in mind. The show runs Tuesday-Friday, with industry parties practically every night
Home to Become a Model:
Lastly, models should keep track of all the people they worked for in a marketing capacity: trade shows, promotions, volunteer work, professional endeavors. They want to have a master list somewhere which contains the date, the client, the show/event, what they were responsible for doing, and a job title they would give themselves for that show/event. This should be submitted to their agent and is a powerful tool to market them to the clients. Think of it as your live event resume
PAY RATE- 200 P/D-3,000
We come into this world with infinite potential and then become conditioned to live to society’s expectations. This is the way it is, and yet we have the potential to change it.
We can have such doubt in ourselves. Am I good enough for this relationship? Will my writing stimulate people? Will I fit in with this new group? Society may limit our potential, but these are self-imposed doubts.
Serve people by reminding them of their potential. Remind them that they can choose self-doubt or self-belief. When we believe in ourselves, we show up differently in the world.
A trip to Fallsburg NewYork this past September was when I first heard this word and yes, when I first heard the word “sarcoidosis” I had to ask for it to be repeated a number of times. I just couldn’t understand what was being said or what it meant. It seems I am not alone. but when it finally sank in..IT SANK to my core
First, it probably helps to share what the word sarcoidosis means. Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease that can and does affect almost any organ in the human body. This means hearts, lungs, eyes, etc. Because of this situation, most patients have a compromised immune system, meaning they are more susceptible to other illnesses. Sarcoidosis can affect anyone, but in the United States it is more prone to show up in people ages 20 to 40 years old. The disease also seems to be more prevalent in people of African American or European heritage, especially those of Scandinavian heritage. It also seems to be more prevalent in women than men. But it is important to share that the disease is often misdiagnosed for years.
So you might ask what knowing about this disease has to do with charity and philanthropy. The simple answer is, a lot! Currently there is no known cause or cure and only some vague treatments. But there is hope! There is a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding a cure and effective treatment. Today the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research (FSR) is the leader in providing the resources for research to be conducted. TRU LUV MEDIA AND FSR HAVE TEAMED UP TO ANNOUNCE OUR LATEST FASHION SHOW.

YOU ARE ANGELS!!
15 years later, the nation is at a far different place. Osama bin Laden is dead and al-Qaeda is a shell of its former self. There are on-going privacy debates in the Congress and across the nation over how far the government should be allowed to curtail civil liberties in the name of national security. The unpopular war in Afghanistan drags on with no end in sight before a public that polls show to be increasingly war-weary.
For millions of Americans, that fateful Autumn day changed everything.
at ground zero It was impossible not to feel the raw emotion… It's hard not to be moved by being here . The transformation of the site shows the resilience and ability of Americans to bounce back
Join TRULUV media as I interview Denise Boland from staten Island TV, we met her as our AIRB&B host and discovered some very incredible things about this woman,
The video below is a link to the interview her and her husband had when escaping the 2nd tower from the 44th floor 88 flights of stairs!! Truly an amazing video!
