Hey Amanda, thanks for taking the time to catch up. What have you been up to?
I have spent the last two days daydreaming in airports and reading books on airplanes. Four flights later and I am finally in Mallorca, Spain… Time for adventures!

Woah that’s awesome! How did you first get into modelling?
It all started when I moved to Byron Bay about a year ago. Some local brands got in touch and I did my first few modeling gigs, and then I have just continued from there.

Describe your style?
Relaxed and comfortable, with a touch of vintage.

Being a model, you obviously need to stay fit and have a great eating plan. Can you tell us some of your favorite dishes and any fitness routines?
I eat everything! I have always been a big fan of fruits and veggies and I eat a lot of them. But only because I love them, not because they make me look a certain way.
I don’t really have fitness routines. However I usually workout 2-3 times a week. I go for a run or do some exercises such as sit-ups etc. But, some weeks I am too busy doing other things and don’t workout at all. I spent the first 20 years of my life being a dancer and it is still my favorite way to exercise! Also, I love to explore! So walking, hiking or just moving around comes naturally for me, however I don’t really see it as a workout.

Do you have a favorite meal?
Not really, but I adore feta cheese and Spanish olives!

If you weren’t a model, what else do you think you’d be doing?
I actually work as a photographer as well. So probably that.

Any Winter beauty secrets?
Drink a lot of water, and although it’s Winter the sun is still strong so use plenty of sunscreen!

Do you have any favorite Australian labels that fill your wardrobe?
Auguste the Label, Zulu & Zephyr + heaps of op shop treasures.

Apart from being in front of the camera, What else will we catch you getting up to?
Being behind the camera. 

Where can we see some of your favorite stuff from the Dreamers and Drifters range?
Right here!
