Model Feature - Shushila Takao

Oh we back! Our model grind has been a bit more vicious of late, as we gear up for the re-launch of with a brand new layout, artist pages, and all that good stuff.

So as per how most of my model discoveries happen, I was trawling Facebook at work (it's kinda part of my job lol) and I stumbled upon one of the loveliest young ladies I've seen in a while, Miss Shushila Takao. I was pretty much immediately struck by her natural beauty, and the more photos I saw of her, the more this was confirmed. I think I developed a bit of a crush lol.

So, loyal readers, it's my pleasure to present this young lady, who is well spoken, driven and extraordinarily smokin' (check her background). Y'all definitely gonna need to check out her websites...
