Maggimae

“A best friend is like a four leaf clover, hard to find, lucky to have.”

In honor of #NationalBestFriendsDay, we asked two of our celebrated Nous Model BFFs, Britt and Maggimae, to share what it is like to be each other’s gal pals. From various inside jokes, to their mutual love of dogs: these ladies are the epitome of good camaraderie. To view the full interview, look below:

Britt and Maggimae on set for Boys & Arrows.

When and how did you first meet?

Britt: We met on an Armani job! It was friends at first sight! We became friends before we were even out of hair and makeup!

Maggimae: We met while on an Armani job together!

What are the two things your best friend does not know about you?

Britt: Trying to think of something ….. drawing a real blank …

Maggimae: We share a toothbrush on occasion so she knows everythinggggg, lol.

Can you describe your best friend in one word?

Britt: Wondrous.

Maggimae: FUNNEST.

What part about your best friend do you like the most?

Britt: How she makes me laugh. We could be doing anything and we always share the best laugh till you cry moments. We even worked a 16 hour day once and were laughing till the end.

Maggimae: How we are literally always laughing together. Cry laughing.

What is the best advice that your best friend has ever given you?

Britt: Maggi is like my little sister and the thing I receive the most from her is that she always believes in me and encourages me just when I need it most.  She helps me stay light hearted and believe the best in life.

Maggimae: I seriously text her and get advice about everything, but the most important and helpful advice is always something model-related. For example, how to dress for castings and do my hair and makeup and all that jazz.

What is their favorite food?

Britt: Sonic….  I’m not sure, but Maggi is so hardcore with health. Yet, then on her cheat day, she knows how to get down like the good ole Midwestern girls that we are!

Maggimae: Pizza for sure. Anything on @soyummy Instagram.

If your best friend has a scar, how did they get it?

Maggimae: On her lip, a dog bit her when she was a kid.

Which is your best friend’s favorite season and why?

Britt: Maggi and I are both sun worshippers! So, summer! We love the beach, bikinis, and ice cream!  Give us more summer! Kansas girls gone Cali!

Maggimae: Summer!!!! All the fun summer things. BBQs, the beach, being tan.

What is your best friend’s dream job?

Britt: Maggi would love to be Mother Earth…. the end.

Maggimae: Comedian and, trust me, she should be looking into that.

If you were out together, what would your best friend eat?

Britt: If it’s cheat day???? Maggi loves Midwest fast food. It’s hilarious because on all other days she is so healthy and some kind of organic vegan cult leader…

Maggimae: Depends on if it’s a cheat day or not. If it’s Friday, loaded fries, pizza, cheese platters.

Would your best friend watch a chick-flick, action, comedy or a horror movie?

Maggimae: Comedy all the way.

Maggimae and Britt looking stunning at GUESS event.

What are the three items your best friend always carries with them?

Britt: Homemade Organic Shea butter, phone, and water bottle (always).

What is your favorite inside joke?

Britt: We never take ourselves too seriously and we love to joke about how we are “professionally good looking,” Zoolander style! We like to make model jokes and have good ole fashion (get it “fashion”) fun!

Maggimae: If we told you then we would have to kill you. 😉 Lol, we have so many there’s no way to even type all of it out! Just know we are a hoot and there’s a lot.

What is the name of your best friend’s crush?

Maggimae: Isaac – her husband haha.

Britt: It was John Stamos (one time she had me help her DM him on Instagram… thank you liquid courage), but then after some questionable speculations concerning his character: she now loves John Ham.

Between the two of you, who takes longer to get ready?

Britt: Me 100 percent. I have to force Maggi to brush her hair and wear makeup. Good thing she is naturally beautiful because that girl is all tomboy.

Maggimae: BRITT 100%.

What is a favorite memory that you two share?

Britt: Maggi and I were at a GUESS event and let’s just say we had a red carpet blooper that had us laughing till we almost peed our pants… again.

Maggimae: We always have so much fun no matter what we are doing… even laying on the floor or cleaning Britt’s room, hahah, but some of my favorite times are when we work together because those days are definitely not even considered work in my book!

Does your best friend have any nicknames?

Britt: Actually, we just combine our names to make the awesome hashtag: #itsbrittmae.

Does your best friend have any strange phobias?

Maggimae: She hates feet.

What is your best friend really bad at?

Maggimae: Coordination is not her best friend, let’s just say that.

Britt: Maggi always shocks me w/ her athleticism, which I lack. So maybe anything girly like hair & makeup.

What is the last book your best friend read?

Maggimae: She reads every dang day. Like one thousand books a week. Last one is “Name of the Wind.”

What is your best friend’s favorite animal? 

Britt: Her dogs are her life

Was your best friend named after anyone? If so, who?

Britt: Rod steward’s song, Maggimae.

What is your best friend’s greatest achievement?

Maggimae: Adopting her adorable perfection baby boy, Shiah!!!

With a new year on the horizon, people are embracing retrospection and reevaluating the impact that 2017 played on their lives.  In an effort to learn from, as well as celebrate each and everyday, we asked Nous girls, Maggimae and Logan to reflect on what made 2017 stand out, as well what they are anticipating for the upcoming year. Read below to find out what they have planned for in their next chapter!:

Hi ladies! Thank you for sharing your time with our readers. Pick three words to describe 2017.

Maggimae: Happy. Busy. Fun.

Logan: Relentless. Far-fetched. Prosperous. 2017 has easily been the wildest year of my life! It threw new challenges and opportunities at me left and right. It also led me to great friendships and revealed the best support team I could ever imagine.

Maggimae having a blast in her home state of Kansas.

Did you travel anywhere? If so, where?

Maggimae: As usual, I went back to Kansas for some of the summer to see my family and that’s always the best ever! My parents also got a house in New Mexico on the river up in the mountains (also 4 miles away from a natural hot springs) so I additionally traveled there. It’s so gorgeous and inspiring to be in nature!! I want to be a mountain woman someday, haha.

Logan: Yes! I think my 2017 consisted of half land-time, half air-time. In the first week of January, I flew to Shanghai, China to model for the agency, Feliz! I lived there for three months and then flew home to Minnesota for about two weeks until I was in the air again! After those two weeks, I made my way to Mexico City to model for the agency, Wanted! Once I returned home, I planned my initial week trip to Los Angeles to interview with modeling agencies! It did not take me long to pack my life into my car, round-up my parents, and start the twenty-seven-hour drive to my new home in Los Angeles!

Logan on set in Shanghai, China.

What was an unexpected joy this past year?

Logan: I really did not expect to like the food in Shanghai, China as much as I did! I will confess that sometimes I was unsure of what I was eating but for the most part, it was really good! Shamelessly admitting that I ate the street food for dinner almost every night!

Most overused phrase during this past year?

Maggimae: “Dead.”

(Urban Dictionary Translation: When you’re passed the point of something being hilariously funny; when you’ve laughed as hard as you possibly can!)

Logan modeling for Nupcias Magazine in Mexico City.

Was there a goal that you accomplished in 2017 that you can now cross off your bucket list?

Logan: There are two things I can now check off my bucket list! The first one was to be on a billboard. When I was in Mexico City, I shot for Liverpool’s Thats It back-to-school campaign! The photos were being used all over Mexico City including on billboards!! It was definitely an exciting surprise to see when I was walking around the city! I can also cross “climb a pyramid” off of my bucket list! When my parents came to visit me in Mexico City, I took them to climb the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon! It was such a great experience with an even better view. I am happy I got to experience the climb with my parents!

If you had to pick only one, what was one of your favorite jobs that you booked this past year? Why?

Maggimae modeling alongside her BFF and fellow Nous Model, Britt, for Boys & Arrows.

Maggimae: I would have to say the Boys and Arrows campaign. It was super fun to shoot with my BFF Britt, stay in a hotel with her, and shoot with a really creative crew. It was basically just us dancing around and having fun the whole time at the shoot. Def more play than work!

Logan: One of my favorite jobs from this past year took place when I was living in Mexico City! I got booked to shoot two editorials for the bridal magazine, Nupcias (pictured above). The company flew the crew and myself to a resort in Punta Mita where we stayed for almost a week! The resort was beyond beautiful and the crew was incredibly fun so it pretty much felt like a vacation!

 

Did you discover any new effective ways to spend your time this past year? (Planning methods, new hobbies, etc.)

Maggimae: My mom taught me how to macrame so I have been making super cute plant hangers. Also this year I have been doing lots of different kinds of hikes around LA. It’s really is gorgeous here!

Logan: There are a few new hobbies I have picked up this past year that I really enjoy doing in my down time. One of them is to write letters either to friends (both from home and the friends I have met along the way) and also to family members. Who doesn’t love getting mail?! Plus, writing really helps me relax and de-stress for the night so it’s a win-win situation. Another way that I use my time is by doing research on literally anything and everything. There is an endless amount of information we can learn and it is always fun to expand our knowledge!!

What was your most worn clothing item of 2017?

Maggimae: My vintage Levi‘s denim jacket. It goes with evvvverything!

Logan: That would be my Flying Monkey bell-bottom blue jeans! They are SO COMFORTABLE. It is hard to find bell-bottom jeans that are the right length, but these are perfect. They are made for being travel day and casual day pants!

Name a trend that you’d like to see continue from last year into this upcoming year.

Logan: Talking fashion, the trend that I would like to see continue into 2018 is the 70’s and 80’s style of clothing! I loved the wide-leg flares of the 70’s, but also fell in love with florals and pinstripes of the 80’s. Really anything that is a “blast from the past” trend is something I will be excited about!

If there was one thing you could change about 2017, what would it be?

Logan: I would change my answers from “no” to “yes” when being asked to hangout or go out! I want to work on stepping out of my comfort zone and start saying “yes” more to invitations. If I would have agreed to these invites, I might have made more friends, more memories, and I would have been available for more opportunities!

Maggimae: Anything I worried or stressed about because, as always, everything turns out okay!

What were some of the best books that you read during this past year that you are eager to recommend?

Maggimae: I know it’s late and I’ve had the book since like 2011, but ‘The Secret.”  If you actually apply the tips that it says for you to do each day, it really is helpful with dealing with the small, stressful stuff in life!

Maggimae with her two dates for New Years!

Do you have any exciting New Years Plans? If so, how are you celebrating?

Maggimae: I always love spending New Years in hanging out with my furbabies so I wake up refreshed for the new year. 🙂

What is something that you are looking forward to this year?

Logan: I am looking forward to making California my home! I will be building new relationships and gaining new experiences this coming year and I cannot wait to see what that involves!

What are you hoping for more of this coming year?

Maggimae: Start booking commercials!

Pick three New Year Resolutions that you hope to stick with throughout this upcoming year.

Logan: Learn another language (Spanish) and become bilingual, Volunteer more on the weekends, Say yes to adventures.

Maggimae: POSITIVITY (always try to see the good in people and situations), health (stick with working out and eating lots of greens and fruit), and to enjoy the little things/be grateful!
