We like Tokyo Bananas

Sometimes, visitors come at the agency with a little something for us. Today, Mister No No Name Dropping, came with a fun gift: Tokyo Bananas!

It's like sponge cake with banana cream filling. It is fun to eat; a new sensation to our European palates. As usual with Japanese stuff, the packaging is really cool!

And if we read correctly, the expiry date is in 2014!! Yeah, we can spare some for later.
Thanks again Mister No No Name Dropping!

It's time to get rid of Cape Town's cliché

Who said Cape Town is a quiet commercial place?? Certainly not Mariano from Zero models, an agency based over there in South Africa. He is coming next week, on September the 3rd, to cast models at the agency. There are plenty of great job opportunities. Check out the editorial from ChewTheMagazine, a new South African-based publication.
So who wants to go??

Need a homemade scrub?

Drizzle weather in Brussels today: It is like we have a giant atomiser spraying the tiniest rain drops ever!
So, if you want a model tip that will freshen you up, here it is : have a good homemade scrub tonight!
Simply mix vegetable oil (almond, jojoba, etc. and yes olive oil! Yes! The one you use to season your salads!!) and sea salt (yes again the one you use for cooking ; the thinnier, the mildest scrub). As the salt does not melt in the oil, it gives a 100% pure natural mixture to scrub your hands, knees, elbows or legs with gentle massage movement.
And the best is yet to come: simply rinse off with lucky warm water and the salt just melts away! No messy crumbs in the tub.
Although it is good to let your skin absorb the oily residue, if you do not want any greasy feeling, simply wash your skin with a mild shower gel.

And voilà, a model tip everyone can achieve with average cooking ingredients !

PS : Avoid scrubing if you have a sensitive skin. Oily skins prefer rapeseed oil for their scrub.

TV at the Agency

Today, the team of the VRT EEN show '1000 Zonnen' came at the agency to interview our classic model Danielle Detremmerie.
It is all about the women's beauty in their fifthies; as Madonna is celebrating her 50 y.o. BDay, they wanted to have the opinion of another beautiful lady. They did the good choice with Danielle. See '1000 Zonnen' tomorrow night, Friday the 15th, at 7.45pm on VRT EEN. Then, it will be available on their website.

Check out now our making of the interview!
