“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.”- Marcus Aurelius

PIM:Izabella. Thank you for gracing PIM. All the Way from the Big Apple. Born and raised in Canada.An Eastern European Background ,Tell Us More What’s a day in the life of Izabella How do you pay the Bills, What do you do for a living? Izabella: Thank you for having me, it is a pleasure to be here.
I began modeling at the age of 9; due to the nature of my job, a big part of my life has always been health and wellness.  Most recently, I relocated to NY to pursue my passion for fitness. I opened my first studio called BellaVita Wellness.  We offer exclusive specialty classes for all ages, personal training, and nutrition counseling.   My goal is to help others get in shape, and pass on everything I have learned throughout the years.  For me, there is no greater reward than being able to make a difference in the lives of others by helping them improve their standard of living.  Health is priceless, and it is the most valuable thing we have in life.
On a typical day, I train my clients; manage the business, and I am still modeling so I still work on set.
Oh do tell PIM readers The 3 Best things about the Big Apple What are your highest and lowest moments in your modeling career thus far? The 3 best things about the Big Apple are: 1) Everything is larger than life. 2) There is always something to do so you can never be bored. 3) The opportunities are endless, you can really live the American Dream.
The highest moment of my modeling career thus far has been collaborating with a talented team on an anti-smoking campaign which I am currently working on.  It is definitely a worthwhile cause that I feel very strongly about.  If this gets even one smoker to reconsider lighting their next cigarette, the effort has definitely been worth it.
The lowest moment of my modeling career has been shooting a smoking campaign over 8 years ago; the reason I did it, was because I thought it was a great opportunity for me. I was young and foolish.  I wish I never did it.
How would you describe Modeling in New York as opposed to other parts of the World? There is a lot of competition in New York, but a lot more opportunity.  I find the atmosphere in New York to be very demanding, and aggressive, in comparison to other places I have worked.
You have graced the Runaway at aged 9. How did you get into it. How important would you say fitness and a healthy lifestyle is for people? Modeling runs in my family.  My grandmother was a hat designer in the Ukraine; many times my mother would get modeling job offers, my mother was beautiful when she was younger, and she has definitely aged gracefully. My sister did some modeling growing up as well, so it was a natural transition for me.  I still remember my first show, as if it were yesterday; my sister actually was the one that got me into the show at a local mall. Since then, I knew I wanted to model regularly. Back then it was so exciting for me. I loved the attention.
Fitness and a healthy lifestyle is extremely important to me.  I am addicted to working out, and eating healthy feel good food.  Like my mother always says “You are what you eat!”
What are your Health and beauty secrets?Any tips for our readers? I can write a book on health and beauty secrets!  My favorite tip for health is to get moving. Do what you enjoy, and have fun with working out.  It doesn’t need to be a chore, and it definitely doesn’t need to be painful.  If I didn’t enjoy going to the gym, I would probably never go. I love working out with a friend, I find it makes time go by fast.  Another great workout is window shopping!  My favorite beauty secret is heels, it makes everything look better!
Can you Cook and What would you make PIM for Dinner? I love to cook!  I would probably make salad, chicken, stuffed mushrooms, and sweet potato for dinner; with whole wheat brownies for dessert.  (I know it sounds terrible, but it is actually delish:))
Describe your day if you did not have your Blackberry/I phone/smartphone? I can’t imagine life without my iPhone, my whole life is on there. My day would probably one big disorganized mess. Even my 9 yr old niece needs her iPad.  One day we were driving past iHop and the sign said “Before there was, iPhone, iPad, or iPod, there was iHop.” After my niece read that her response was “THANK GOD I was not born then!!” Its sad, but I had to agree with her.  Its hard for me to remember a time without my iPhone.
What do you prefer on a guy.Boxers or Briefs? Either
Have you Heard about South Africa. If so What have you heard? I have heard a lot about South Africa.  I am dying to visit!  I would love to visit Kruger Park, and to go on a Safari.
Your dream shoot…Pick a location, a theme? My dream shoot would actually be in South Africa; I have always wanted to shoot there.  The theme would be wildlife; I would love to incorporate animals.
Oh and what would you regard as the sexiest part of your body and a guys? I think the sexiest part of my body are probably my eyes, and abs. The sexiest part of a guys body is strong arms.
What was the most bizarre and funny come on line that a guy has used on you? I have heard many cheesy come on lines; the first one I can think of is “Do I know you? Because you look a lot like my next girlfriend”
