Cebu Beauty Queen & Model Nicole Borromeo
Hello! I’m Nicole Borromeo and I’m an interior design student, model, and beauty queen from Cebu, Philippines.
What is your fashion style and where do you get your inspiration from?
My fashion style is pretty basic. I like to keep things minimal with comfy clothes I can mix and match depending on my mood. I usually get inspiration from Pinterest or social media accounts.
Do you have any hobbies or interests?
I love adventure and trying new things. I enjoy hiking, drawing, listening to podcasts and I’m on my way to becoming a certified scuba diver.
How will you describe a typical day for yourself?
Good. Every day I’m alive is a good day and I have many things to be grateful for.
My version of a typical day at home begins with coffee. It wakes me up. checking my emails and social media accounts to reply to people at the start of the day. Brunch is almost always anabolic French toast. Sometimes I have phone calls with my friends. I then work on the projects on my to-do list such as my design plates where the majority of my time is spent. I usually listen to lofi jazz or podcasts on stories and self improvement as I work. I either go on walks or use my jump rope by the late afternoon for exercise and it has made such a difference for both my physical and mental health. I journal my day in a mood diary app. It reminds me of my blessings. I end my day cozy and snug.
If you can be a fictional character for real, who will you be?
Disney’s Rapunzel. I’m a huge Disney fan and excluding the fact she was trapped in a tower for 18 years, she’s got magical hair that glows and heals wounds when she sings! Imagine the people you could help.
Is there something you’ve always wanted to learn but have yet to find the time for it?
Flipping clothes with a sewing machine! I feel that it adds more value knowing I made them and it saves on money too.
What incredible life hack do you know that is invaluable to you?
When you’re nervous, tell yourself you’re just excited because the adrenaline rush you feel when you’re afraid is the same hormone released when you are excited.
What is a funny attempt or pickup line a guy has tried to use to know you?
We visited a market booth in Cannes and this guy stopped me and asked for my name. I shyly replied, “Nicole”. With red thread, he swiftly embroidered on a strip of paper, “Neko”, gave it to me with a look of pride and said I could keep it for free. I was so touched and couldn’t bring myself to say he spelled my name wrong.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Nicole. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexiness is energy you can tell by the way they walk in the room.
It’s the full package – the way they carry themselves, the self-assurance in knowing and embracing what they want. Sexy looks effortless.
