Home Town: Cape Town S.A
Height: 1.73m (5ft 9)
Dress Size: 8/10 (UK)
How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
Usually it takes about 15 minutes unless I wash and straighten or curl my hair, then much longer!
What is your diet and fitness routine like?
I used to go to the gym everyday when I lived in SA I dont do it anymore but I do love going to the gym and I eat pretty healthy. I cant diet I just dont see the point of depriving myself, I would rather eat what I feel like in moderation.
What do you like best about your appearance?
I love my height and proportion of my body as well as my massive amount of hair on my head :P
If you could change anything about the way you look what you it be?
I would change my ribs sticking out ( they push in and then stick out) Its called a pigeon chest and it does sometimes annoy me.
How much does the way you look affect how you feel?
A lot, if i dont feel comfortable i wil not be as outgoing as usual.
Three Most beautiful female celebrities?
Mila Kunis , Eva Mendes, Jessica Biel
Which celebrities make the worst role models?
Any of these reality stars that just drink, party, spray tan with no jobs etc, whatever the case may be. Thats just not real life its entertainment.
How do you feel about plastic surgery?
I have no problem with it, within reason of course. Change something because you want to not for someone else or to make other people like you more. Both my sisters have had boob jobs and I wouldnt hesitate to get one either (normal size nothing above a c! )
You opinions on airbrushing and 'perfection' in the media?
Its neccesary but not in the the way its being done these days. I love photoshopped pictures because they are more appealing but dont photoshop false lashes on mascara ads or make lingerie models extremely thin, it doesnt make people want to buy the product...
Would you rather be too thin or too fat?
Ohhh thats difficult. I am not sure. Probably to thin because then I can eat loads to fatten up as I love eating.
Any words of wisdom for women lacking in confidence?
I think every morning you should go through a mental list of things you are thankful for in your head. This usually makes me feel lucky and helps me forget anything i might see as flaws on myself which does make you more confident. Also its not bad to try and look good. Everyone wants to feel pretty and once you feel pretty you will be more confident.
How confident in your own skin? /10
8.5/10 Everyone has insecurities but dont make it rule your life! :)
