“I don’t think success is built on luck at all. It’s based on hard work, tenacity, grit, determination, fortitude, intellect and networking.”
The Who And Why by skin health emporium
I’m the founder and CEO of both WINK Models and The Right Fit – I’ve always had a passion for the creative industry, having worked as a model myself and then as a producer, and wanting to find ways for the industry to thrive and serve both talent and clients in a better way. I love uniting resources, people, and ideas together to solve a problem. I’ve always been motivated by being able to make a difference, to really bring a tangible outcome to peoples lives – both personally and professionally. I love being out of my comfort zone and being challenged, and that’s what drives me on a day to day basis.
What Does Success Mean To You And How Much Do You Think Success Is Built On Luck?
I don’t think success is built on luck at all. It’s based on hard work, tenacity, grit, determination, fortitude, intellect and networking. Success, to me, means setting goals both personally and professionally and working towards achieving them. It doesn’t necessarily mean you always achieve them, but you learn along the way and you strive to be better.
What Does Being Beautiful And Healthy Mean To You?
To me, being beautiful means being comfortable in your own skin, owning your strengths and weaknesses, championing those around you, being self-aware, and being compassionate. Being healthy means having balance, for me that can look like having days where I work 12 or 14hrs in the office, but balancing that with other days where I get to rest, and always making sure I eat well, drink enough water, nourish my body and my mind.
I am a La Prairie addict and their range has absolutely transformed my skin. Every morning I wash my face in the shower with their foaming face cleanser, then I tone with cellular refining lotion. If its winter, I use the skin caviar luxe face cream which is a little heavier, and if summer I use the sheer version which just isn’t as creamy for those warmer days. Once a week I use the 3min peel which is amazing and my skin is so much brighter the next day. Whenever I can I try to get an Omnilux facial in, and I see Matty at Medispa by Matty in Double Bay at least once a month for PRP, laser facial, skin needling, etc to keep my skin in top shape.
Managing Mental Health
Trying to be self-aware about when I am getting run down and overwhelmed, and taking steps to reduce the impact. I focus on getting enough sleep, asking for help from my team or family/friends when I need, getting time in nature for long walks or a swim, and making sure I take all my vitamins. I see a naturopath regularly and find that a regular exercise routine really helps with my mental health as well as physical. I carve out time that is non-negotiable to make sure I get the time to train, and I make sure I don’t over commit during the week to work functions and events to ensure I am getting enough sleep. I have an amazing group of friends who I talk through my challenges with who are fantastic at giving great advice and making sure I feel supported.
