LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON
MARA MARTIN Mother, model, and advocate, Mara Martin rose to fame after walking in the 2018 Sports Illustrated Runway Show while breastfeeding her then 5-month-old daughter, Aria. That moment, which has gained over 40 billion impressions, has been hailed as a ground-breaking moment for women and mothers worldwide, in an effort to normalizing breastfeeding. Since then, Mara has worked as an advocate for women and mothers around the world. She works closely with the organization Save the Children as a Celebrity Cabinet member and is currently writing her first book to be published in 2021

WHEN YOU CAN TRAVEL AGAIN, WHERE WILL BE YOUR FIRST DESTINATION?

I will definitely be going to see family first. My fiancé’s family lives in Canada and we haven’t seen them in so long; almost a year. So going to Toronto will be our first trip! My brother also had his third little girl that we haven’t met yet, so we also want to go to San Diego where they live. After that, I want to travel somewhere tropical for a vacation after being stuck in the house for so long. I think we all deserve a vacation at this point!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ISLAND OR BEACH HOTEL?

The Dalmar hotel in Fort Lauderdale is pretty special. It has an amazing view of the city, a block away from the beach, and a rooftop pool to die for. It has everything you could ever want in a hotel! My favourite island hotel is hands down Jade Mountain Beach resort. It’s in St. Lucia and has the most incredible views of the Piton mountains. The last time we were there we had the place all to ourselves, and the views from the pool overlooking the ocean and the Pitons is a memory that I will never forget.

ON YOUR TRAVEL BUCKET LIST FOR 2021?

I’m used to travelling at least once a month for work, so as travelling has been put to a halt I feel like I have missed out this year. So for 2021, I want to make up for all of the lost travel and get going again. One place I have always wanted to visit is Hawaii. It’s always been on top of my list of places to go and I’ve heard it’s incredibly beautiful. Hopefully, 2021 is the year it will happen! Another place I would love to go to is Exuma, the Bahamas to swim with the pigs. The water is crystal clear and we are big animal lovers so it would be such a dream come true! Something closer to home would be taking my daughter Aria to Disney. She is at the age where Anna and Elsa are two of her closest friends, and dressing her up in a princess dress to meet them would bring her so much joy.
