First holiday memory?
My first holiday memory was when my family and I went to Durban. I was excited as young girl to experience the coastal life of South Africa.

Favourite place in SA?
I love Cape Town. The beautiful scenery and the breathtaking mountains are nostalgic. 
No wonder it is voted one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Best holiday?
I was one of 10 influencers that international beauty brand, Urban Decay flew to the beautiful island of Reunion for the launch of their Naked Heat palette. We stayed at a 5-star resort called LUX* Saint Gilles and were treated like royalty from the word go.

What have you learnt from your travels?
Traveling has made me appreciate other cultures, it has forced me to leave my comfort zone and as a result it has made me find beauty in the simple things in life.

Ideal travelling companion?
Definitely my man, he is the best traveling companion. 

Beach bum, culture vulture or adrenalin junkie?
I am a culture vulture.

Greatest travel luxury?
Nothing beats a great hotel.

Holiday reading?
I love reading self-guide books. My old-time favorite is "Power of the mind" by John Kehoe.

Must-have beauty product when traveling?
I never travel without my Vichy Ideal Soleil sunblock. Even in winter, I understand of protecting my skin against UV Rays.

Worst travel experience?
In all honestly, I have never had a bad travel experience. I am truly blessed.

Best hotel?
Hotel Plaza, Athénée

Favourite walk, swim, ride or drive?
Well this one it's not a ride but a favorite fly experience in the helicopter in Reunion Island. Nothing was as fulfilling as seeing the island and the ocean in a magical movement of the helicopter which differs from that of an aircraft. 



Best meal abroad?
Volcano chocolate cake dessert in LUX* Saint Gilles. I Loved how the inspiration was derived from the active volcano they have in Reunion Island. 

Favourite city?
Paris 

Where to next?
Greece or New York City perhaps.
