Confessions are in order. We stalk Instagram profiles of hot girls for a living; it doesn’t reflect well on our image but it’s part of the job and we take it very seriously. Every once in a while we stumble across a profile that brings the entire office around a phone, gawking over each other’s shoulders. That’s pretty much what happened when we came across Lumi’s profile. Don’t believe us, check her out for yourself.
Anyways, we finally got hold of her and talked her into clicking a few photographs with us. Best. Decision. Ever. Not only is she scorching hot 24/7, she is a dedicated professional who struts the corporate path. A beautiful girl with a drive and passion to match, Lumi furthered her studies in France after high school. Naturally, having heard so much about how sexy the French language sounded, we asked her to say something in French; and we kid you not there was an immediate and distinct rise in temperature in the room. We didn’t understand a word she said but we imagined it was something pretty hot.
TNM: IS FRANCE AS ROMANTIC AS THEY SAY IT IS?
Not to sound so stereotypical but, honestly, France exudes romanticism; in their places, in their people, in their wine, in their language. I was blown away the first time I went to Paris.
France is hands down the most romantic place ever and the moment you enter the country you can feel it in the air.
TNM: GIVE US A GOOD PICKUP LINE, IN FRENCH, THAT WOULD GET ATTENTION OF A BEAUTIFUL GIRL. MAYBE ONE WITH A HOT SET OF LIPS.
Honestly, French guys don’t really use pick-up lines. They are quite direct with their approach. They would just ask you out without any hesitation. I believe they think their accent does the job. But, I kinda like this one, “Est-ce que tu crois au coup de foudre au premier regard ou est-ce que je dois repasser?”
(Do you believe in love at first sight? Or should I walk by again?)
TNM: WE KNOW YOU WORK HARD, BUT YOU ALSO KNOW HOW TO KICK UP YOUR HEELS AND RELAX. WHAT DRIVES YOU TO BE A DEDICATED PROFESSIONAL WHEN IT COMES TO WORK?
I think dedication at work comes naturally when you actually love what you are doing. Hospitality & Fashion is where my passion lies but if I really like and enjoy what I am doing, I could totally get lost in it and walk a few miles and even forget that I’m wearing heels.
TNM: DO PEOPLE TREAT YOU DIFFERENTLY AT WORK IN ANY WAY?
Umm… I’m not really sure because I think it really depends from person to person. But being a girl, you do get certain privileges some times.
TNM: JUDGING FROM THE TIME WE SPENT WITH YOU, YOU’RE ONE OF THE SWEETEST PEOPLE AROUND. BUT WE CAN’T HELP BUT HOPE THAT THERE’S A SEXY MEAN STREAK IN THERE SOMEWHERE; IS THERE? HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH ASSHOLES AT WORK?
Firstly, thank you! You guys were really sweet too and super fun to work with. (SCORE!) I generally am a sweet person but I can’t tolerate a**holes. I don’t tolerate indecency, unfairness and disrespect from anyone. If someone treats me badly, I stand up for myself and deal with them and put them in their place for sure. I think no matter how sweet or good of a person you are, you should never tolerate disrespect and bad behavior.
TNM: DO GUYS HIT ON YOU A LOT? DOES IT EVER WORK?
Haha. Yes, they do. It usually doesn’t work unless there is something really special about the person.
TNM: SO WHAT GETS YOUR ATTENTION IN A GUY?
Confidence, a strong personality and ambition.
TNM: BEFORE WE GET AHEAD OF OURSELVES, WE’LL JUST COME OUT AND ASK, ARE YOU SINGLE?
No (internally screaming in agony).
TNM: TELL US SOMETHING MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT.
I was pretty much a nerd back in school. (a pretty hot one, we bet)
TNM: AND SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE WHO KNOW YOU DEFINITELY KNOW ABOUT YOU.
I am very ambitious and I tend to laugh at my own jokes a lot
