The best thing about this MAXIM shoot is… that it’s my first time shooting for MAXIM Australia and I feel very excited to do so! The whole team was amazing and working with photographer Wayne Daniels is always great. And the location itself – Casablanca Bar in Sydney’s Double Bay – is iconic to me. The fact it will closing down in July makes it so much more special to me. I’ve had many fun girls’ nights there!
When I’m not posing for MAXIM I… have modelled for other publications but shooting for you guys is very special in comparison. This being in my country and not international is great and gives my social media fans the ability to purchase it! Also, attending the VIP MAXIM parties have always been top of my social event list and getting to know the MAXIM girls and cover stars, such as Imogen Anthony, have been a ball. Other than attending parties and walking my dogs I kind of live a quiet life.
The funniest thing that’s happened while attending a MAXIM VIP party is… sitting back and watching the scramble for the illustrious VIP goodie bags. They’re always so good and the poor MAXIM girls handing them out are always bombarded!
The craziest night I’ve had… was recently at my friend’s house. It always begins with Wet Pussy shots and some Jack Daniel’s, with some innocent pool being played, too. Once the shots kick in people start cheating at pool so we move onto other games such as King’s Cup – except it’s a modified version and there’s everything from Nerf Guns to truffle pigs involved. It’s always crazy fun, though!
My go-to drink is… a Lychee Martini with Belvedere vodka. I’ve had arguments with people over the taste and many are convinced Grey Goose is better, but for me Belvedere just sits better.
My hangover cure is… Domino’s Pizza. The ONLY reason why is that nothing else opens in my area until 5pm and everyone is hungry around 11am. I should just learn to stock my fridge prior to the weekend but I do love their garlic bread.
