What is your favourite part of being an influencer ?
The support & kind messages I get from my followers on a daily basis, as well as the inspiring people I meet traveling and the places I get to see. I have always loved travelling and visiting new places, being an influencer has allowed me to visit some incredible countries that I could have only dreamed of ever visiting. I feel so lucky every day.
How would you describe your personal vacation or travel style ?
If I’m planning a holiday it will always be somewhere hot! Im always so cold so any opportunity to be in the sun is my ideal getaway ! My typical outfits would be to keep it simple in the daytime I’d usually pack plain shirts and swimsuits with denim shorts or a simple kaftan & then of the evening I love to get glammed up , I will always pack a little black dress and I do love an all white outfit for hot holidays, to show of the tan!

It’s such a fun bag I feel like it’s my little friend!

Why do you love Modeliste magazine and mode around the globe getaways?
This is my first trip with Modeliste I have to say I’ve had the most wonderful time and met such a lovely group of hard working girls ,it’s great to see their life’s on Instagram but then to actually meet them on a getaway in Jamaica is very cool! I love how the magazine is inspired by not only models but everyday people.
