How did you begin your career? 
My defining moment was going on too hot to handle season 4. The show worked out for me better than I could’ve ever imagined. I met the love of my life and my career started to take off.

How do you hope to influence people through your social media platform? What can people expect to see when visiting your social media page(s)?
I hope to influence women to live life and be confident. I feel as though I have a connection with my supporters because they’ve seen me go through ups and downs like a normal person. They’ve even seen me cry my eyes out. When visiting my social media you can expect to see a lot of traveling, fashion and smiles.

What do you predict will be the biggest trends of this Spring/Summer season?
I love this question because I definitely have the answer! I think the biggest trends of this summer will be baggy jean shorts, long denim skirts, sheer dresses, cargo skirts and sets, silk skirts, waist coats as tops and I think bright colors are coming back!

Any upcoming travel plans you’re looking forward to?
I am always traveling especially managing a long distance relationship this past month alone I’ve been to Scotland, Aspen and Coachella valley, and I’m currently headed to the airport to hop on a flight to London to make it to my boyfriends first race of the season. I will be in London for about 2 weeks then I’m not sure after that!

Favorite brands and places to shop for your favorite Summer looks?
Some of my favorite places to shop for summer looks lately have been thrift stores! I know sometimes thrifting can be a lot of work so I like to buy from resale thrift on Instagram, Depop or Vinted. I love mixing thrift with new and accessorizing with a nice bag and sunnies. Some other online stores I love to shop at are Lux to Lill, Meshki, and Edikted.

What was the highlight of your trip to Aspen with Modeliste?
The highlight of my trip to Aspen was meeting all of the amazing girls and taking the best photos with the sweetest photographer. I had the best time and I would do it again!

What’s your go-to airport look? Essentials to pack in a carry-on?
My go to airport look is a matching sweatsuit and mini platform Uggs or Ugg slippers if I’m headed somewhere cold and if I’m headed somewhere warm I would still wear a matching sweat suit but wear biker shorts under and socks and slides so when I get off the plane I can take my sweats and socks off. Also the essentials in my carry-on is my makeup, because I don’t want it to break in my checked bag. Along with snacks, a phone charger, headphones and my Stanley water bottle, is an absolute must, I just fill it up at the airport after security and my water is cold the whole flight.

Girls night in or Girls night out?
I love a girls night in but I also love a girls night out, I’m a Libra so I like a good balance of it all!

What’s a typical work week like for you? Any advice for staying productive throughout the week?
A typical work week for me is planning out shooting content for different brands, going to events, Vlogging my week, posting Instagram stories, maybe a few meetings and sometimes travel and in the midst of it all I have to edit and piece together all of the content and plan out my Instagram feed. I think I covered a week of work for me but every week is different. I’m always busy. What helps me stay productive is truly loving what I do and wanting to continue to grow and do bigger and better things, I also don’t let myself sit down for too long because I will nap by accident, and I have too many appointments that I can’t miss!

What’s your go-to makeup routine? Any products you’d recommend for our Modeliste readers?
My go to makeup routine is a nice full coverage dewy skin look with a peachy blush, a dark brown wing liner with eyeshadow and a half lash on the outer corner. I highly recommend the Charlotte Tilbury foundations and anything my makeup by Mario! I also post lots of get ready with me’s on TikTok so you can find all the details there as well.

What’s something your fans would be surprised to know about you?
I think something people would be surprised to know about me is I come from very humble beginnings and I started posting on Instagram and making YouTube videos over 7 years ago in high school and I got made fun of for it.

Where do you gain inspiration for content? Any tips & tricks you’d like to share for those inspiring to have a career like your own?
I gain inspiration from fashion runways, music, places I’ve travel and other creators I feel like no one ever wants to admit it but we all inspire one another! Just put your own spin on it and make it different! Feel good!

What makes you different from other content creators?
What makes me different is me being myself and never trying to be someone else showing my no makeup days and full glam, being willing to put myself out there and do a bit of everything beauty, fashion and personality.

What would you like to say to your fans/followers?
I would like to say thank you to all of my supporters for loving me and without you guys this all wouldn’t be possible I’m more grateful than you’ll ever know! I hope you join me for what’s next!
