How does it feel to be an influencer with over 200k followers on Instagram?
I am very grateful for this platform :) I feel blessed to have a large following and such a supportive audience. I have so many online friends from all over the world thanks to Instagram!
Do you ever second guess posting a picture online?I definitely second guess posting photos. Sometimes I overthink way too much but I’m learning to trust myself and be more authentic with my audience.
Do you ever feel self-conscious? How do you deal with that?Absolutely! Insecure thoughts usually creep up for me whenever I’m trying something new. For example, going to a casting or traveling somewhere, even going out and making new friends. The fear and negative thoughts creep in, but I’ve learned to feel the nervousness and push forward to do it anyway because most of the time the thoughts that are making me feel self-conscious aren’t true and there’s always a great feeling that comes from facing a fear afterward.
Being an influencer, you travel a lot, how do you deal with jet lag?
I’m actually really good with jet lag, I’ll usually take melatonin to sleep if I land at night and I’m not already tired. or sometimes I’ll stay awake until it’s night time!
What is one of your favorite places to travel?
My number one favorite place to travel would be Tulum, Mexico it’s absolutely magical and I just can’t seem to get enough. The ocean water is crystal clear and warm. I love the eco-friendly resorts. There are great yoga classes, the food is absolutely incredible. It’s a jungle on the beach! There’s hardly any wifi and you can completely disconnect from the world.
How do you recharge after a long day?
My favorite way to recharge after a long day is a cup of tea or two. I absolutely love my tea, a hot bath and a nice home-cooked meal followed by a really funny movie.
What is your go-to bed and breakfast?
I can’t remember the last time I stayed in a bed and breakfast actually… I usually stay in a villa or hotel when I travel. I also fast 16 hours a day and eat the remaining 8 hours so most of the time I do start eating is around 2 pm and most places aren’t serving breakfast so I’ll usually go for a smoothie or healthy juice!
