Mahila Mendez Snyder has a lot going on. She models and she owns her own fashion company yet she still manages to spend plenty of time to chill on the beach in bikinis and we respect that. Mahila is the definition of a beach bunny from the sun kissed skin to the seemingly endless supply of bathing suits. She’s laid back and doesn’t take things too seriously, she takes life as it comes and what guy doesn’t love an easy going and low maintenance lady? The Guy Society caught up with the sexy Mahila to discuss her modeling career, what she looks for in a guy and her fashion line.
The Guy Society: Hey Mahila, welcome to The Guy Society. It’s a pleasure to have you, how’s everything going?
Mahila Mendez Snyder: Hey Jon! The pleasure is all mine, everything’s been great, a bit busy but I wouldn’t want it any other way!
The Guy Society: Okay, let’s start off with you telling us a little bit about yourself. What should we know about you?
Mahila Mendez Snyder: Well, if it wasn’t obvious enough already I think everyone should know I’m a huge beach junkie especially when it comes to water sports. I love everything that has to do with physical contact and water. I love surfing, wakeboarding, kiteboarding, paddle boarding, jet skiing, or just plain swimming. If I can’t keep active on the water I have no problem taking business elsewhere, like to the sand!
I’m a huge beach volleyball fan, I started playing volleyball in middle school and joined the South Florida Volleyball Team when I graduated. It’s safe to say Volleyball is my favorite sport, that I can actually play, outside of the water. Aside from sports, there are a few other brief things you guys should know. For example, although I was raised in Miami, I am originally half Cuban and half German. I speak three languages, absolutely love my giant American bulldog Pluto and if I had to pick one food to eat for the rest of my life it would most definitely be pizza!
The Guy Society: At what point did you get into modeling and how did it happen?
Mahila Mendez Snyder: I began modeling at a young age but it wasn’t until a few years back that I really decided to take things to another level. It all started when I began to develop my clothing line and took the initiative to be my own model.
The Guy Society: I have to put this out there, you might have the greatest butt in the world. I just need to know if you agree.
Mahila Mendez Snyder: (Laughs) I don’t know about the world! But I am definitely thankful to have inherited one of my mom’s best traits, aside from her personality of course. (Laughs)
The Guy Society: It’s time for a fan favorite question, what qualities do you look for in a guy? Describe your perfect man.
Mahila Mendez Snyder: Okay, so internal-wise I look for a guy who has a great personality, can make me laugh, keep a conversation going, sarcasm is always good but not enough that it makes him seem cocky and most importantly someone who knows what they want and aren’t afraid to fight for it. Externally, I’d have to say I’m rather a big sucker for abs and blondes. That doesn’t necessarily mean neither are mandatory, nor do they affect my decision towards a potential partner. But if I see someone with these traits I’m more likely to take a second glance.
The Guy Society: What are the men in today’s society lacking?
Mahila Mendez Snyder: I think men in today’s society are mostly lacking loyalty and respect. Everyone loves the idea of “a perfect relationship” but very few actually put work into getting and keeping it there. With all this riot about social media and dating apps it’s hard to find a guy who isn’t talking, or trying to talk, to 50 girls at the same time and not to mention the whole name calling deal. Apparently referring to a woman as a “bitch” nowadays is okay too? I just don’t get it and probably never will.
The Guy Society: It’s never cool to call a nice girl a bitch. Tell me about your business the Mahilani Corp. I checked the site out and it’s very cool.
Mahila Mendez Snyder: Thank you! Mahilani Corp. is a brand based on free spirited, creative souls who love fashion just as much as I do. My main goal was to provide girls with the option to design their own items of clothing. They have the liberty to choose between several different styles, colors, patterns and prints all custom made to fit their size. The site is still a work in progress, just wanted to get it up and running so I wouldn’t miss out on any orders but I definitely have some big plans for the near future. A few things you should look out for on the site are weekly coupon discount codes, free giveaway raffles, and I’ll be picking my top 5 promo models for this spring collection next month!
The Guy Society: Did you always plan to be a businesswoman or did opportunities just kind of present themselves?
Mahila Mendez Snyder: I always knew I wanted to run my own business instead of having to work for someone else. But to be honest the opportunity presented itself at what I think was the perfect time. I originally began attending college to get a masters in forensics and somehow ended up owning a clothing manufacturing company. I can’t say that I would want it any other way, it wasn’t until I leaped into the fashion industry that I realized how much I truly loved it. Just the fact that I get to design, manufacture and model my own line is a blessing. And that comes nowhere near the satisfaction I get after reading the item reviews from a happy customer.
The Guy Society: You’re an extremely beautiful woman, just stunning. What’s the thing you most get complimented on?
Mahila Mendez Snyder: Thank you again and as you might have guessed, the number one thing I get complimented on would have to be my butt followed by my body and hair. (Laughs)
The Guy Society: What would you say has been the highlight of your career up to this point?
Mahila Mendez Snyder: The highlight of my career has definitely been establishing a name for myself within my company and publicly. Being able to reach thousands of people and sharing with them a piece of my lifestyle is extremely rewarding.
The Guy Society: If I went through your iPod what kind of music would I find?
Mahila Mendez Snyder: You’d find a little bit of everything. I’m a huge fan of music, no matter the genre. If it sounds good, I’ll bump it! A few of my top favorite artists would have to be Zeds Dead, Young Thug, Felix Cartel, Future, IloveMakonen and the list goes on.
The Guy Society: Random Questions: Sneakers or sexy high heels?
Mahila Mendez Snyder: High heel boots, always and forever.
The Guy Society: TV show you’re obsessed with right now?
Mahila Mendez Snyder: Gotham! I’m a huge DC Comics fan.
The Guy Society: Favorite food ever?
Mahila Mendez Snyder: Anything Italian really but if I had to pick it all comes down to pizza!
The Guy Society: Pajamas, lingerie, or nothing at all?
Mahila Mendez Snyder: Gotta go with nothing at all. You can’t say you’ve truly lived until you sleep naked.
The Guy Society: Last book you read?
Mahila Mendez Snyder: The Secret, a must read for everyone.
The Guy Society: Dirty talk in the bedroom: Very dirty or just slightly dirty?
Mahila Mendez Snyder: It’s all about the mood. If it’s just right, the dirtier the better.
The Guy Society: Favorite vacation spot?
Mahila Mendez Snyder: Fiji, I plan to move there after I retire, if not sooner!
The Guy Society: Okay Mahila, time to wrap things up here, can you tell our readers where they can follow you?
