Working as a model has brought me so many opportunities, and one of the most challenging is to deal with the constant change of weather.
As for now I’m enjoying a great warm Brazilian summer, but a month ago I was in NYC with the blizzard invading the American sky, I was freezing! This past November I got to work at a photoshoot in Aspen, Colorado. It was my first time visiting a place with ski stations in the mountains. I got really excited as soon as my cold feet stepped into the city so I went straight to exploring this different kind of city that was all new to me!
I couldn’t help but noticing that I wasn’t prepared at all for the low temperatures, and after 15 minutes walking and taking pictures, I could barely feel my fingertips anymore and it only got worse… So I took my strong Brazilian body back to the hotel, but only after finding my supplies for the night: fresh pressed beet,carrot,ginger, lemon juice and a yogurt parfait with organic berries – I was lucky to find a nice café house opened out of season.
Getting ready to shoot in the cold weather
I ended up eating my homemade bowl of food for dinner and the juice and yogurt parfait in the morning. As you guys know, I always carry some food with me for unpredictable moments. I wrote an article about in the past read it HERE .
Nothing better than my own food made with love
Basically it was made of organic veggies such as brussel sprouts, aspargus, carrots and a fish fillet with organic quinoa, SO Yummy !!! I ate half of portion in the airplane and the rest of it comfortably chilling in my hotel room. Next day I was ready to work hard whenever they needed me at my photoshoot in Aspen… I got lucky we shoot most of the pictures inside a beautiful location house in the middle of the mountains. So inspiring!
The other “model” for the day and I . Feeling happy!
Aspen seemed to be a nice warm and cozy little place despite the white mountain tops covered in ice…I really like to come back another day to enjoy some ski fun and hot cocoa with friends ;)
Will share more stories of my shoots and healthy foods I take with me with you in the future!
