Describe what you do for a living? What does a typical day look like for you?

I’m a model, so my days vary a lot. And my routine changes depending on where I am. But a normal shoot day in Australia would look like...

Make coffee, stretch, maybe go for a run, eat breakfast, shoot, swim at the beach, play with my dog, cook something for dinner. I’m obsessed with a Jamie Oliver spaghetti bolognese recipe at the moment. I’ve been making that at least once a week lately.

What is the supermarket/ drug store/ chemist beauty product(s) that you use and love?

*  Embryolisse as my night moisturiser - it’s so rich and nourishing
*  Garnier Micellar Cleansing water to remove makeup
*  Cetaphil as my morning cleaner
*  QV body moisturiser

What is your main form of beauty body maintenance? What products do you use on your body?

Keeping hydrated! And staying fit. I use Frank Body coffee scrub twice a week, and dry body brush every now and then as well. I use a QV moisturiser for my body and wear Le Tan 50+ coconut sunscreen when I’m in the sun.

How do you keep fit/ healthy? Does exercise form a large part of your routine?

I started reformer pilates this year and absolutely love it. I jog every now and then. And try to stretch morning and night.

What cosmetic procedures/ professional treatments do you have as part of your beauty routine?

I get facials every few months. They help revitalise my skin especially when it’s tired from travelling.

What do you do when your body needs to recover?


You’re tired/ hungover/ rundown: what is your beauty hack?

Rest and drinking a lot of water. Hydralyte helps a lot too!

Do you have a beauty icon? Who are they and why?

My Grandma! She has the softest, most beautiful skin.
