What do you do and why do you do it?

I am a makeup artist and lifestyle blogger. I have found these two methods when used together and separately provide me with the proviledge to influence people to be the best version of themselves. I encourage people to still feel like themselves in a face of makeup how they desire for any special occasion, as well as providing relatable support for those in need by sharing my stories and struggles that I have gained throughout my own mindset journey. I am now thrilled to see others I have inspired to join me in a life of everyday self love and striving to achieve nothing but their wildest hopes and dreams.

You’re broken hearted - what tracks does your heartbreak playlist consist of?

Ed Sheehan, John Mayer and Avril Lavgine.. and after a while, Little Mix ‘shout out to my ex’

What are the best TV shows of all time?

Seinfeld, friends and blue bloods.

Name some spots in Melbourne that are good for a Tinder date.

I have never used Tinder however I probably wouldn’t suggest a private place! A nice rooftop bar if the weather is nice, but holey moley would be perfect. If they can’t play mini golf are they even the one? Mixing drinking with a competition is the ideal first date/tinder test!

Who’s your hero and where in Melbourne would you take them out for a serious hang?

I would take Meghan Markle to the Royal Botanical Gardens for a picnic.

Where do you buy those fabulous clothes of yours?

I have gained a lot of my wardrobe from my overseas travels! I also am a killer bargain hunter however you won’t see me in much big brands. I am all about style but most importantly comfort.

What’s the area/ spot in town you’ll never be caught dead in?

Inside the Yarra River

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in your city that you never get to do?

Ride a bike!

What restaurant in Melbourne looks crap, but the food’s amazing?

China bar!

Where can you get the best cocktail in Melbourne? Which one do you like?

Naked for Satan! There was one with egg whites that was delicious. Or espresso martinis anywhere!

Where would you take your partner in Melbourne if you wanted to really pamper them?

A night in crown towers.

Which snacks can you only get in your country, and which ones do you recommend?

Tim tams, all kinds are amazing but first timers should just try the original!

What’s the one place you think is overrated in Melbourne?

Crown casino, however I am not a gambler!

What’s the one place you think is underrated in Melbourne?

Brunswick street Fitzroy in general!

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

I love Copenhagen in Denmark. It was a home away from home with a different culture one I wished we had more of in Melbourne. Nothing beats a new city, different language and architecture to a new level.
