Favourite thing to wear that makes you feel powerful , sexy , chic , like you?
I’m a summer beach girl through and through so I’m so happy and comfortable in a summer dress and jandals (in Summer of course) but in Winter I love Winter jackets and trench coats.
Pasta is my absolute favourite meal!
Ooohhh this is a hard one - I absolutely love Amazonita in Christchurch.
Favourite place to visit
Lake Waikaremoana, Gizzy (home town), Queenstown, Italy and Mexico
People you admire in business or in general
Being a typical Sagittarius I find it always hard to choose one so I’m just going to say anyone who is giving it a go, working hard and just doing the best they can.
' Balance is key. In everything you do. Dance all night long and practice yoga the next day. Drink wine but don’t forget your green juice. Eat chocolate when your heart wants it and kale salad when your body needs it. Wear high heels on Saturday and walk barefoot on Sunday. Go shopping at the mall and then sit down and meditate in your bedroom. Live high and low. Move and stay still. Embrace all sides of who you are and live your authentic truth! Be brave and bold and spontaneous and loud and let that complement your abilities to find silence and patience and modesty and peace. Aim for balance. Make your own rules and don’t let anybody tell you how to live according to theirs. '
Favourite way to move your body
I love playing sports - netball, tennis, water skiing etc but I also love yoga and reformer pilates or just going for a nice walk in nature.
What brings you peace?
Organisation and people being kind to each other
We will be doing a whole load of these of these interviews with people that we love + admire - stay tuned!
Yours in health + beauty
