WHAT NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE YOU?
The way that natural products can heal our bodies. I am so intrigued by alternative medicine. Its such a goldmine of goodness that we have right at our fingertips and it’s so wonderful that a lot more people are opening their eyes to it now.
THE HEALTH MANTRA YOU SWEAR BY.
Find fun in exercise. I think it’s so important to find a method of exercise that is fun for you. You’re not going get inspiration to do something that feels like a chore. Whether that is walking, dancing, pilates or boxing – make sure you can smile while you are doing it and you’ll have the motivation to do it over and over again.
WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH?
Dad jokes. The worst jokes get me everytime!
WHAT DISAPPOINTS YOU?
The greed of the world.
WHAT STAR SIGN ARE YOU?
Cancer. The emotional one.
HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE LOVE?
The feeling for someone that you have when you would move mountains in order for their happiness. Its selflessness and putting them first and that warm and fuzzy feeling deep down in your belly.
THE LAST LOVE LETTER YOU SENT?
I actually write love letters to my partner from time to time. He travels a lot so sometimes I sneak them into his suitcase, or leave them on the bed for him to find when we gets home if he goes out. I love love letters!.
WHAT MAKES YOU CRY?
Movies, im a sucker for sad romance movies, especially on the plane! I just watched the Heath Ledger documentary on a flight and I was a sopping mess.
YOU FEEL LUCKY WHEN?
I think about my life. I am the luckiest girl in the world. I am incredibly spoilt by my family and don’t take it granted for a single second.
HOME TO YOU IS?
Wherever my family is. We’re on the road a lot and the one thing that always makes me feel at home is having our little travelling family around me.
WHAT MAKES YOU NERVOUS?
Confrontation. I hate it! I’d rather run in the other direction…
PEOPLE IMPRESS YOU WHEN…
They are down to earth and don’t change with their surroundings. Also if they can do 5 backflips in a row, that has to impress you.
WHAT GROUNDS YOU?
My mother. She’s so humble and amazing and has taught me so much about the world. She grew up sharing a bed with 5 of her siblings on a street with dirt roads. She has come so far and taught me that you can never get too big for your boots.
YOU NEED THIS TO FEEL WHOLE…
