Instant riser.

Moisturize my hands.

What beauty products do you swear by?
Essential lavender oil, coconut oil.

Talk us through a typical work day...
Well that really depends. Sometimes I can sleep until around 10am before going to my castings, other times I have to get up at 4 a.m. because I'm shooting on location... either way, I'm always looking forward to the lunch break and a nice hot shower before going to bed.

What’s the most castings you’ve ever done in a day?
I don't know, counting makes it worse.

What do you like to eat when you’re...
a)    Going to castings — bananas, because they're easy to take along

c)    Hanging with friends — Their hamsters. Kidding, sushi, still.

Where’s the best place you’ve traveled to for work?
Bali! So nice.

What would you say is the best part and the toughest part of being a model?
The best part is those moments during a shoot when you really flow with the photographer, hardest part is not being able to make plans.

Do you have a go to brand or designer and why?
I like Uniqlo because their range of products is not overwhelming.

Who is your style icon?
James Dean.

Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Dark chocolate.

And finally if you could only choose to be one; would you be a mermaid or a unicorn?
A unicorn because I would feel trapped not being able to run. And unicorns can hang out at the beach too...
