Where are you from?
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I like listening to music, watching TV series and movies but I mostly enjoy crocheting in my spare time.
What do you aspire to do in the future?
I’m currently doing an online course in Marketing and Event Planning. I hope one day that I will be able to have my own little business as an event planner and I have also always dreamt of owning a clothing shop.
How would you describe your style?
I would describe my style as casual chic. For example, that could mean it’s a mix of classy element with an everyday item such as a pair of jeans or jacket.
Where do you buy your clothes from?
I am fortunate enough to have my family living overseas in New Zealand, so I often ask a family member to bring clothes over. But I also buy clothes at second hand shops because I think it has good clothes.
Who influences your style?
My sense of style comes from people I see on the streets, friends and most definitely through social media.
What beauty products do you use?
To be honest with regards to my beauty regime and products, I would say that I like to keep things as natural as possible. I often will only wear make-up on special occasions. Once a month I love making a natural face mask which helps healing acne, shrinking pores and is a great cleanser. I mix one egg white, a half-cup of pawpaw and one teaspoon of honey and then spread the paste on my face to let dry for approximately 15 minutes.
Any fashion advice?
The fashion advice that I would give to girls and women of Vanuatu is to show themselves through fashion and not to be scared. I think the clothes you wear, your style, should reflect your personality. The most important rule of mine is to wear any outfit with confidence!
