Such an absolute honor to have you in Playboy! Tell us about your daily schedule as a model, do you have a routine? I start every morning in a great mood! Then I’ll do some yoga to keep myself flexible and clear my mind. I’ll have a healthy breakfast, shower, and get dressed. My outfit isn’t complete without my heels- They make me feel like such a lady! Then I’ll get down to everything else I have planned for the day.
How do you like to begin your day? I love starting my day with a big smile. I always look in the mirror and tell myself that I am ready to have a positive day!
What are some of your biggest dreams you hope to achieve? I love to travel! I want to have a home in every state and country I visit, especially on a tropical island somewhere. I’m also interested in eCommerce and real estate. Those houses have to get paid for somehow!
What helps you decompress and relax? A glass of wine, a good book, and hearing the waves crash on the sand. If I can’t get to the beach, I’ll light a candle and meditate at home. I love my me-time. It really helps me feel centered, relaxed, and beautiful.
Who has been the most influential person in your life and why? My mentor has been the most influential person in my life. She has shown me how to go out and get the things that I want, no matter how much hard work it will take. She’s helped me tremendously with my mindset and living for today since tomorrow isn’t promised.
How romantic are you? I am a total romantic! I love cozy, romantic dates with candles and wine. I have always been sensual and love being in beautiful environments with the people I love. My favorite day is Valentine’s Day- I don’t think it gets more romantic than that!
What has been the most memorable date you’ve ever had? My most memorable date was with a guy who immediately proposed. It was so sweet and funny! We had only been on one date and he immediately promised me the world and asked me to be his wife. Unforgettable!
What was the biggest lesson from your worst breakup? The biggest lesson I learned from my worst breakup is not to get married when you’re nineteen! We both had so much maturing and growing to do, so marriage was not the best idea.
Would you rather be loved, respected, or admired? I want to be admired. I love having people’s attention, but also their appreciation for what I do and who I am. Being admired feels like it takes both love and respect, so why not have it all?
Are you a city traveler or a nature explorer? I’m a nature explorer. I’d rather be outside on a hike instead of trapped in a boring gym. I love the adventure of the outdoors and getting some fresh air.
What’s on your travel bucket list? I want to see all the national parks (I’m an explorer, remember?), do a safari in South Africa, and spend some time on the Mediterranean coast in Spain and Greece.
Where can our readers catch up with you and stay updated with your work? The readers can catch up with my modeling work through my social media. I’m also pretty old-school and check my email constantly, so we can connect there, too!
