The holiday season is here and first-year model Erin Heatherton wants to escape to Costa Rica, enjoy some sweet potato or pumpkin and listen to The Rat Pack's famous Christmas album. These are a few of the secrets we learned from this month's The Chalkboard Mag. Erin served as guest editor and also offered some fitness advice (giving herself more sauna time has made a huge difference) and some health and beauty tips (drink watermelon juice first thing in the morning).

As for the holidays, Erin is praying someone gets her a "sick massage chair" or anything from Etsy while she joked about getting "ponies" for all the children in her life. We'd be happy with a pair of wireless headphones or "that Tile thingy."

It's been a big year for Erin. Besides making her debut in the SI Swimsuit Issue, Erin also posed for famous fashion photographer Yu Tsai, played basketball with Bulls all-star Jimmy Butler and had one of the year's best quotes (“I like the guys that just want you naked") when asked about lingerie. And let's not forget the time she body painted one of the world's top baseball players.

We're not sure what's in store for Erin in 2016, but we hope she finally gets the massage chair of her dreams.
