Check out her responses to the '10 Quickies' below:
1.) What is your one-line positive thinking mantra?
Too many to name one but one is “I have what it takes” for any situation.
2.) Describe your personality?
Moody sometimes 8) lol I tend to over think stuff but also hopeful and goofey at times I’m the biggest homebody ever I get cussed all the time for it , but that’s me I love the simple things in life I love to cook love to eat and watch movies read books and make music, be with my loved onesJ everything else is brawta.
3.) What practices have you adopted that have led to a healthier lifestyle?
I started seeing a nutritionist at the Heart foundation ( big up to Franny Mahfood) That’s helped to change my life and how I look at health a lot more and also Exercise, I have to exercise or else it affects my mood 8) There is nothing that feels better to me than being in a healthy happy Body with a healthy happy mind to match 8) but it’s a daily decision I am by no means an expert yet.
4.) The world is going green, have you embraced the trend?
I Would love to but I have to say, I feel very privileged to live in a country where I can go pick fruit from a tree and know that it hasn’t been messed with in anyway and I think it’s a real benefit living here because our produce is as close to organic as can be , but also we are taking the steps to ensure our environment can continue to flourish the way in which it was created to by doing our part too and it’s something we learn more about every day. But I definitely wanna have a solar house one day and it’s one of my dreams to own and live on a farm so we’ll see.
5.) Provide us with a few tips and tricks for holistic living?
I think it’s important to be concerned with what goes into our bodies and to be educated about stuff like that and not just to always take things at face value for example you can ask my Mum I Hate taking tablets or medicine cause I know somewhere in the world there is a natural cure or remedy for it but like I said it’s a process I’m not gonna be a hypocrite and say that I do everything right cause I most certainly don’t, but it’s a personal choice .
6.) Describe your fashion style?
Comfort !!! Above everything else !!! Lol If I’m not comfortable in it, I’m not gonna move right, walk right or wear it right, For me the biggest fashion accessory is confidence and it goes hand in hand with comfort 8)
7.) How do you unwind after a long week?
Sleep, watch movies and cook
8.) What empowers you?
Knowing there is no one else in the world that can do me better than me. We are all unrepeatable miracles of God as My good friend Alaine would say
