Weekend 1 of the 2014 Coachella festival has wrapped, and a few of our girls were front and center for it all. Alexis Ren, Monica Ollander (arriving by helicopter, no less), Brianna Gilchrist, Laura Harrier, and Cameron Richardson were just a few of the thousands of people that flocked to Indio, CA for the three day event. It was beyond awesome, and we’ve got the pictures to prove it.

“I like to keep it simple with my papa. He always want some quality time with his kids, so I make sure that I spend lots of time with him doing what he loves most. But I also try to shower him with his all time favorites. This fathers day, I managed to buy him a ticket to LA to visit me next month, and packaged a big box full of all his favorite workout attire, and all of his favorite goodies for him to enjoy!” – Lauren Johnson

“For Father’s Day I’ve decided I’m going to make my dad a pie from scratch (his fav) and I’m putting together a small scrapbook. He hates getting presents, so he actually planned a surprise for the rest of us.” – Kym Ellis

Whether you’re based in Los Angeles or not, there’s a good chance that you’ve heard of Runyon Canyon. According to their official site, “Runyon Canyon is a 160-acre park smack dab in the heart of everything – a stone’s throw away from the historic Hollywood strip.” The park provides various hiking trails, scenic outlooks, free daily yoga classes and areas for meditating. Angelinos can often spot fitness instructors, celebrities and our models of course while hiking.

  • Walk at your own pace. There are several hiking routes that vary in difficulty where some are more challenging than others. It’s important to recognize what works best for you then progress to the others. Continue on to Runyon Canyon‘s site to learn more about each hiking route.
  • Do not get discouraged by those who seem to be pros at it, instead be inspired!
  • Always remember to stretch! You can prevent serious injuries by stretching prior to working out.
  • Get a walking buddy, it’s always great to have someone to push and motivate you to make it to the top.
  • Bring a camera! There’s no way you can hike this beautiful canyon without taking pictures.

Thursday, March 28th we gathered at What Goes Around Comes Around to celebrate the launch of NOUSzine!

The party was a success and we can’t thank everyone enough for their support and love.

Models and friends danced the night away to an amazing set from BJ Pandabear, thank you for keeping the party rocking!

Many thanks to VeeV, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and Sapere Aude Sparkling Wine for supplying our party with drinks!

Thank you to The Grilled Cheese Truck for being there to end our hunger with a menu of the best grilled cheese combinations we have ever seen.

Our tastebuds were so thankful for the delicious cupcakes from The Frosted Cupcakery.

Last but not least thank you to our wonderful venue, What Goes Around Comes Around for hosting our launch party! We truly couldn’t have done it without you.

 

Happy 15th Anniversary Nous Models

Today is the perfect day to sneak an inspirational quote from the founder and president of Nous Model Management, Kenya Knight.

If there was one piece of advise you could give a young entrepreneur what would it be?

Kenya: The good stuff is found on the journey. Soak it ALL in…the great and even the not so great.
