You have glowing skin and gorgeous hair. Share with us your hair care and skincare routine.
I keep things fairly simple! I drink a gallon of water daily and this genuinely helps my skin, keeping it hydrated, supple and pimple-free. I avoid soda and alcohol and just drink water instead – it’s the best beauty product in the World and it’s free! For my hair, I use an intensive moisturizing hair mask once a week, which helps keep it soft especially because I like to change my hair colour regularly.
It is a dream comes true for a model to appear for Playboy. Tell us more about your experience of working with Playboy.
The Playboy reality TV show “Girls Next Door” came on the E! Channel and, after watching it, I realised I wanted to a part of Hugh Hefner’s world. At that time I was studying online at Montana State University and couldn’t get the Playboy dream out of my head. So I researched Playboy and discovered they were casting for their Playboy College Girls edition and submitted myself.
Seeing as I was almost 6ft tall with natural DD breasts, blonde hair and blue eyes, they felt I stood out and invited me for a test shoot at Playboy Studio West. They absolutely loved me and flew me out to attend their big ‘Midsummers Night’s Dream’ annual party at the Playboy Mansion. After that, I never left and moved straight in to the Bunny House within the Playboy Mansion grounds. Hugh Hefner was wonderful and I was treated like a princess whilst living there.
My first shoots were for Playboy College Girls and Playboy Cyber Girls, then I worked my way up until I became a Playboy Playmate and posed for the main edition of Playboy Magazine in numerous countries Worldwide. I made the front cover a few times, with my most-recent one being the South African Playboy Magazine in 2018. It’s been an incredible journey!”
Advice and motivational words to the inspiring and budding fashion model girls, who all are your fans and shall like to know from you for their climb to the ladder of success in the field of modeling?
You must be mentally strong and have a very thick skin, because if you are weak or overly sensitive, you will struggle in the modeling industry.
When I first started, fashion agents would tell me I was too fat and I’d go home and cry. I soon realised I had to toughen up. You are judged on your appearance in modelling and must be prepared for criticism sometimes.
Maybe choose a modelling genre that suits your natural body type too, I changed from fashion to glamour/bikini modelling and it was much better for me. My other advice is be passionate about what you do otherwise there’s no point doing it at all – and be kind and humble. Nobody likes selfish/mean people with big egos!
