Do you take some specific diet or have a strict menu that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit?
My diet isn’t strict in any means of the word as I love eating healthy foods and it’s something that comes naturally. In fact, I love all kinds of foods, I just make sure to maintain a healthy balance to keep my body well-nourished while still indulging from time to time. When it comes to my daily diet, my rule of thumb is to eat one colorful meal a day
(Usually meaning a lot of veggies and fruits) For breakfast, I’m currently hooked on egg whites with a big handful of spinach!
When pageant season comes around, that’s when my diet becomes a little more tedious. I have this infused water that I like to make and I’ve been drinking it every morning for years now. It’s composed of 2 sliced lemons, 1 sliced cucumber, and a couple mint leaves. I add them to a pitcher of water and leave it to infuse all the goodness overnight. I find it to be helpful for my metabolism and maintaining clear healthy skin.
Tea of all kinds is also one of my pageant prep favorites! Yogi Tea is my go to brand! When training for a swimsuit pageant I like to reach for food that are lean and green, as I like to say, haha! I love whipping up some eggs with a big handful of spinach for breakfast. Lunch is usually a large leafy green salad with a protein of any kind. And because my workout regime is so strenuous during pageant prep, I make sure to replenish with a milkshake for dinner.
Who has been your greatest influence and motivator in your success in your career?
This one is easy. My brother, Chance! He’s helped me find confidence in my work and has shown me my true abilities in modeling through the years. He’s my biggest cheerleader, and the best part is he’s my own free personal photographer.
Having done so many photo shoots, tell us 6 must-haves that you follow before going for a photo shoot. Before a photo-shoot, I always make sure to exfoliate. You want to get that GLOW. Lots of water. Being dehydrated can really show up in photos.
With that, a good nights’ sleep is always a plus! Concealer may cover up dark circles but I always strive to bring the most energy to a shoot. Extra nude undergarments. Nothing is worse than going to a great photo-shoot and being asked to put on a beautifully sheer dress knowing you have bright red Victoria secret on. Don’t forget a little snack too.
With summers coming up, tell us your 5 favorite swimwear brands.
There are so many! How do I choose? I absolutely love Veve Swimwear for all my swimsuit pageant needs. I absolutely adore swimwear by Tropic of C, Candice Swanepoel’s brand. My favorite pieces are from Sommer Swim, Beach bunny, and Monday.
