How would your best friends describe you in 3 words?

 When I asked my friends to describe me in 3 words they used the words: “ray of sunshine”, “smart”, and “outgoing.”

Editor’s note: she is, in fact, all of these things!

What was your favorite project you worked on in 2014? 

 Having the opportunity to work on the Gap Kids and Kate Spade/Jack Spade campaign was very exciting. The amazing photographer Stefano Azario shot the campaign, and it was a dream come true to shoot with him.

How did it feel to see giant posters of yourself in the stores’ windows? 

 Seeing my posters in person was almost unreal. My favorite part about being on the posters was seeing all the photos people sent me. Pictures were sent from France, Canada, Japan, Hollywood and New York. Even some of my best friends went to a mall where my picture was and sent me several selfies. The most exciting moment was seeing myself outside of the Midtown tunnel on a huge billboard.

What is one thing you can’t leave the house without?

 My IPhone. We are practically attached. Who could live without Instagram?

 What advice do you have to offer to other aspiring models? 

When modeling it is always important to stay focused and serious, but it is also important to have fun. While it is a big part of my life, I always make sure to balance my schoolwork, friends, and family.  Always remember to be you.

Travelkins // Jurassic Coast

It’s been a tough few weeks for my little guy. Settling into school has been a huge adjustment for him. He’s such a sensitive soul. A beautifully natured spirit that is gentle and kind and deeply thoughtful.

We took advantage of a little school holiday. Packed up our favourite toy dinosaurs and took the drive down to the Jurassic Coast where some close friends moved to recently to say hi. We checked out their local beaches, the deep forests, old ruined castles and spent some time out.

No routine. Just a Mumma and her Babiekins. Taking time. To just… Be.

They recently launched their children’s line and it’s insanely adorable! With artists all over the world creating designs for buketfeet, I chose a NYC and Cali artist for Lucas and I – the best of both coasts!
