Tell us a little bit more in depth about your new talk show “Miracle Mindset”– how did you come up with this idea? Were there any specific motivations?
Hi! I have recently decided to create a YouTube series focusing on mental health, and the power of not only just our minds, but also our mindset. The purpose of creating the YouTube series is to explore health, wellness and have conversations about real life things, which is something I’ve always wanted to focus on in my content. The nitty gritty. I already have a presence on YouTube, a supportive and incredible community. The saying “you can’t pour from an empty cup” reminds me that it’s better to do one thing very well, than lot’s of things not very well. I will also be interviewing some of the most inspirational women (and men) that I know. I’ll be focusing on the idea of positivity and how a positive mindset can completely change your life. I truly believe in that and I think it’s crucial to believe in yourself wholeheartedly in order to succeed.
Health and wellness are clearly very vital to you. How do you ensure to integrate your fitness routine into your days and maintain a focus on eating healthy recipes? Tell us more about this 3-Week Booty Guide!
I try to get my body moving every day in some way or another! I think it’s so imperative to our health that we do so. I typically eat intuitively, and believe it’s important to allow yourself to have the things you want occasionally. I created these guides, in conjunction with a personal trainer with the lifestyle of a busy woman in mind. The goal is to build your lower body- while still incorporating cardio. The great thing about this workout is that you can do it from anywhere, with no equipment. It’s 3 workouts per week, which is realistic for most people. It’s not overwhelming. Everybody is different, so results will always be different. But if you work hard, then you will LOVE the results. I have had an overwhelmingly positive response from women all around the world, saying that they love their bodies, and that these workouts are fun.
As an Australian model and an expert on all things beauty, what are your biggest tips to your fellow beauty followers? How has beauty impacted self-love?
I’ve just recently started being religious about my skincare routine, (now that I am 27), and it has made such a huge difference in my skin. In every way, it’s so important to take care of ourselves and our bodies, and that includes our skin as well. I think beauty is subjective, but self-love is so important in regards to feeling beautiful. My biggest tip is to take sun protection seriously- just do it girl! This means sunscreen every single day, even when you aren’t going outside.
You have had previous struggles with acne and mental health, how have you overcome these obstacles and how do you think they have shaped you into the person you are today?
I think almost everyone has struggled with mental health in one capacity or another. I’ve struggled with severe anxiety and depression in the past, and it’s taken a lot of work to get to the point that I’m at now. If I hadn’t been through what I went through, I wouldn’t be the person that I am now. I’ve become stronger, more independent, and confident in myself. As for my skin struggles, I actually dealt with adult cystic acne, and it’s something that still bothers me from time to time. It’s really taken education on my skin type and implementing skincare to help heal that, and I do think overcoming it has increased my confidence greatly. A large part of the reason I got acne (literally when I was 25) was because of stress- so learning to manage that stress has also made a big difference. Self-care is SO important.
Do you believe your relationship experience in the past has altered your perspective on relationships or provided you with new insights that can now be transferred to your new current relationship?
Of course! I think that’s part of being human, we hold onto experiences (both good and bad) and how we act is a result of this. When I was 20, I actually married my childhood sweetheart, and after being married for nearly 5 years I went through a divorce. During that time I had a lot of feelings of betrayal. It took me a little while, but now I realize that there’s NOTHING more powerful than knowing your worth. I’m grateful for those experiences and the way that they shaped me into who I am today. It’s also taught me to not “settle” – as scary as it is to walk away from something familiar (but toxic), it’s worth it. You may sacrifice something now to walk away, but if you’re in a relationship that is toxic, or unhealthy, then you deserve better. You deserve to be truly happy and to have someone who values, respects and honours you.
Often it has been stigmatized that women cannot be experts in all things money – however, you have expertise in crypto currency and investing. What made you decide to become knowledgeable in these areas and what are your biggest tips to people who may not be as financially savvy?
Women are powerful, and that stigma is ridiculous. I believe that knowing how to handle your finances is such an important part of being an entrepreneur, and even if you’re not, it’s important to know how to manage your money in order to give yourself a cushion. You never know what could happen, and having a back up plan makes life so much easier in those stressful moments.
My goal with finances is always to have freedom- I’m working hard for freedom that translates not only to my finances, but also my life. There is nothing more I want than to take care of myself and my family, and to empower other women to do the same. I started learning about crypto when I was 18, and it was something I had to teach myself. I would say to those who are looking to learn more about it, to start with saving on a regular basis and begin with watching videos/educating yourself on ways to invest. I really like the Kraken app, it’s super easy to use and learn on. This is not financial advice!
How do you believe you foster a connection with your audience?
I aspire to make my platform a positive place, especially for young girls, who may be struggling with insecurities. I’ve learned so much about myself in my 20’s that I want to share with my followers and subscribers to make a small difference in how they view the world. I want people to leave my channel feeling confident and motivated to better themselves. I’ve started to implement this through my Youtube videos and incorporate more self-improvement themes within my content, and hope to continue it through all of my social channels. Another important thing is to share the lows, not just the highs of life. So often on social media, we see perfect, curated people, with perfect lives- but that’s hardly ever the case. I aim to be real, and still go on with my stories, with no makeup and breakouts, the same way my girlfriends would see me if they came to my house for coffee. Having conversations, about topics- that aren’t always pretty, but they’re real.
What would you say has been your biggest accomplishment thus far?
One of them would be my university degrees! People are often surprised to find out that I have multiple degrees. Social media is actually a career that happened organically for me! I kind of fell into it- My university degrees are actually in the health space. I worked full time in Cosmetic Dentistry as an OHT and it was my passion. I loved seeing my patients, changing people’s perception of going to the dentist, and boosting people’s confidence by improving their smiles. I started taking a lot of before and after photos of fillings that I had done on my patients. When I started sharing these pictures to the social media accounts of the practice, the business skyrocketed. It was at that point I realized the power in harnessing social media. It’s the future. I’m just grateful that I was able to make a career out of something I’m passionate about and that I get to do what I do every day. I genuinely love sharing my life, and I hope that sharing the highs and lows of my life, can empower other women
