BEHIND THE EYES
24 carat lover of stars, bleached shores, wild nights, chic interiors, diamonds & little black dresses.
I learnt young that time's non-refundable and seeing the moon shine on the other side of the world changed me. My parents influenced my infatuation with travel, as I learnt that happiness is going in pursuit of, and realising dreams. Consequently, I have substantial dreams without limits to the lap of luxury.
As a child, I grew an enchantment for vocabulary and started to understand the power of our words, winning awards for creative and poetic work throughout my schooling. Writing became a creative outlet to express my desires and emotions.
Going into my twenties my words became informative as I combined my enthusiasms into an active travel blog- 'She Travels'.
Travel flourished into an opportunity I'd always take and this philosophy spilled into all areas of my life. Travel can indeed, turn an ordinary life into an extraordinary one.
I spent two years backpacking South East Asia, and 6 months in Bali unveiling enthusiasms for yoga, hiking and scuba diving.
Weaved between travel, I achieved a Bachelors degree in Marketing, spending 4 long summers working on the Greek Islands to boot.
As I entered my final year of University, I knuckled down simultaneously creating a web building business that gained traction. I declined investment the following year, I've been non conforming since the 90's I wasn't about to start.
Never settle for less than you desire.
After 3 years blogging, She Travels yielded small returns- It no longer exists, although I'm reviving posts into articles for blogs & magazines. View them here.
What was left, was my social media following, that I'm onwardly building upon.
Following University, travel interests took me west, I had a desire to be in LA. I saw a snapshot of life that I couldn't un-see that ignited a flame within me for fame, lust, money, luxury, and a fast life; I propelled that desire into a career change.
Despite being late in the game, I started modelling thereafter. I uprooted my life in England, moving to Vancouver, Canada. The transition was challenging, I felt I was backsliding, though I knew if I didn't pursue it, there would be trouble.
Whilst getting started, I took an internship in Hong Kong, working alongside the CEO I learned "If you want to be the best you have to sacrifice". Pretty damn good advice that stuck, I pass this graciously onto you.
Since, I've modelled in New York, Chicago, Toronto, LA, London, Tokyo and Hawaii.
Canada gave me a base to explore the west and I took a liking to road trips, hiking, canyoneering & touring national parks in the States. I love deserts, I plan to get a Harley Davidson with leathers and cigarettes to ride in the quiet abyss and I did some intense backcountry hiking, completing the west coast trail and Juan de fuca trail. I enjoy a challenge.
My affections for writing awakened again and recent published works are based on dating, love, poetry & philosophy. Read my articles here.
4 years on in Canada, over a year in the States, 13 lucky visits to Vegas and 40+ countries travelled, as I live my 30th year my heart is full of gratitude.
To publish my first book in 2021, there's a compelling romanticism within me that I'm transmuting into poetry and ideologies about love.
South & Central America have hooked my attention for backpacking, to learn Spanish and salsa dancing. For luxury travel, Pairs, Ibiza and NYC- Although it all depends on the worlds recovery following 2020.
The charm of London captivates me for my next home base as Vancouver closes to an end, but you never know, I could end up in Sydney or LA.
My love affair with writing, modelling and our worlds lands only breaches the tip of the iceberg, I am going to heights because I realise that every day is a gift, an opportunity to be fabulous, laugh and radiate love.
And for you..
My goal is to inspire you with the power of my words to be self-confident and live your fullest life. It's my duty to show you the ropes to a limitless life, planting seeds of desire to arouse the giant within you.
My hope is that you will use your power- that is uniquely being you.
I'm grateful for each one of you, and if you're reading this, we have through these words, already met.
