What does self love mean to you?
To me, it means to take time to come back to source. To slow down and nurture my body, mind and soul, which can be taking time in nature, painting, going for a swim, massage..
When the day is up, the week has been long, what’s your ultimate self love ritual?
Painting with a glass of red wine and nice music to dance to. My absolute favourite thing to do. It helps me to relax and get lost in my art!
Where does your confidence come from? / What makes you feel confident?
My confidence comes from deep within me. When I was younger I was struggling so much with confidence and I found that my creativity really helped me to find confidence. A new way to express myself!
What is your favourite way to wear lingerie / style lingerie?
I love a good matching set but I tend to mostly just wear the bottom part haha. I like to wear comfortable but sexy pieces.
How does lingerie help you to feel empowered?
I think lingerie is sexy and quite seductive and romantic!
What does your perfect weekend entail?
Mmmm... Going for a nature adventure, either spend the whole day by the ocean or going to a beautiful waterfall with my partner or my girlfriends.
If you had to describe self love in one word, what would it be?
Is there anything you once disliked about yourself that you now love?
My breasts. I always struggled with that part of myself, not having much. The past few years, I've learned to appreciate the vessel that carries me through life and that means to love every part of my body.
If you could give one piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be?
Be gentle on yourself. I was always so self-critical and quite self-conscious. We are all beautiful in our own ways!
