Where were you born:

Albany Western Australia

Where do you live now:

More or less based in London at the moment

Could you tell me a little about your parents:

Where are your mother and father from and if you would like to a line or two about them, who they are what they did, or something simple about your family back ground. My parents are both Aussie born and raised. My dads a farmer so they both run the business together

A couple of things of which you have done or are doing now:

cooking! I love to cook in my time off. I love finding a new recipe and gathering all the bits and bobs then taking that time to create a nourishing meal. I find it therapeutic after a long day or lots of travelling

What is beauty to you:

Beauty is being confident and comfortable in your own skin, knowing all your flaws are just something that adds to your beauty

What do you find beautiful in others:

Passion! When someone is passionate about something they glow! And I love a person that has a great smile

What are your thoughts about ageing and beauty:

I think ageing is beauty. wrinkles stretch marks and grey hairs show apart of someone's history and what has shaped them to who they are today

What gives you strength in life:

The love and support from friends and family

What gives you your sense of identity:

My morals and values. My up bringing and family and friends

What causes are close to you heart:

The fight against childhood obesity, feminism, gay rights, sea shepherd global (they flight to save whales from being killed)

What do you do to keep in shape physically and how often:

On my days off I use "class pass" so can go to any class in London, I often choose barre, a hiit class, or sometimes yoga. I try do this 3-4 times a week and I love walking

What do you do to keep in your mind in shape:

Like I said earlier cooking is like meditation to me. Long walks are great for clearing my mind and helping to put things in perspective. I'm also trying to take a few deep breaths when I feel like things are getting a bit hectic, just to reconnect with myself and see where my body is at

What do you do to look after your skin:

I wash my face morning and night and never sleep with makeup on, I use a water based makeup remover. Drink loads of water especially when flying and I eat like the rainbow! All those multi coloured veggies have different vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre to help get the glow.

What little things do you buy just for you even though they may never be seen or known to others:

I try buy different recipe books in each country I travel too! And I like to buy a different type of dip each week, at the moment I have a turmeric hummus and its delish!

What little things do you do just for you even though they may never be seen or known to others:

People watch in a cafes,

What is one of the most important things for you in you life whether it’s something you have or are looking to achieve:

To do things that make me happy, if I am happy then what's there to worry about? I want to continue to see how far I can go in this industry and know that I gave it my all

Who represents a beautiful person for you at this moment and why:

I can't really pin point anyone in particular but just people who are doing what they love, it's hard and scary to follow a dream but it gives someone so much life  

A moment in your life that had a big effect on who you are now:

Moving to London this year has had a huge impact on who I am now. I had to take a bit of a leap of faith and leave behind everything that I was comfortable with on the off chance that the European market will work for me. So far so good!

Any other thoughts on health, mental health, age, beauty, life you would like to share:

Sometimes it helps to just look in the mirror and find 5 things you love about yourself. We often spend too much time finding our faults that we end up pushing aside all our good traits. I have taken more time into looking after my hair, feet and nails, so have started using a moisturiser on my feet (which also helps after a long day standing in high shoes) a once a week hair mask and cuticle oil and filing my nails.
