Be nice to nerdy girls. #tbt to me being the top academic student of my class in 2008.

Not all bravery is boastful. Sometimes it moves in whispers like the soft beat of one foot followed by antoher. - L.E. Bowman
Don't give up just yet... πŸ’ͺ

A woman does not have to be modest to deserve respect. You are allowed to love and celebrate yourself without having to feel guilty about it. I am officially turning my back on all the expectations that classify a "real woman." All women are real women ✌

You don't have to choose between smart and sexy. You can be both. You are both! There are no apologies needed for being many different dimensions of YOU! We live in a world where women are still being put in their place for being too outspoken, opinionated and informed. And don't you dare throw in sexy as well, 'cause then you are officially too much πŸ˜©πŸ™ˆ I have lost count of the amount of conversations or social situations I've been in, feeling I need to make myself smaller (mentally and personality wise) because I am a model and I know what I want in life. That makes people uncomfortable, heaven knows why!? So I'll leave you with one of my favourite quotes of Maya Angelo: "Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women."

To all the girls asking me about how to become a model, here's the 5 step process for you:
1. Get basic polaroid shots taken of yourself like in my post above. Keep it basic in termes of clothing and make up, the agency wants to see your natural body shape and facial features. You'll need a head, profile and full body shot. You can even take it with a good quality phone. Don't spend lots of money on taking polaroids!
2. Google ALL the modelling agencies in your area and make a list of the ones that suit your look. If you are commercial apply to commercial agencies, curve then curve agencies and editorial to the editorial agencies.
3. Apply to as many agencies as possible that suit your look. It will up your chanches of getting signed.
4. To apply, you'll have to visit every agency's website and click on a link that reads "Join/Become a model/Get scouted." The link will enable you to fill in all of your details in terms of height, measurements, age and dress size. Don't lie about your size, it will only be an embarrassment when you meet them in person and you don't look like you said you do. There will also be an option to upload your polaroid photos (usually not in a bigger size than between 1 to 3MB).
5. Agencies will get back to you within 2 weeks after your application to let you know if you were successful or not. If YES, they'll ask you to come in and see them. Dress neatly, be on time and be yourself. A charismatic personality will count in your favour! GOOD luck my loves! You've got nothing to lose, I am keeping fingers crossed πŸ™ŒπŸ“·πŸ‘Œ

You are probably beating yourself up at the moment for picking up weight during the holidays. I don't weigh myself, but I can definitely feel my jeans being tighter than what they usually are πŸ—πŸΉπŸ˜‰ In some moments my mind still wants to go back to a place of being my own biggest enemy. I was criticizing my body for not being "small and cellulite-free" enough for so many years of my life during high school, university and my whole Miss South Africa journey. I was looking in a mirror every day, seeing the progress I have made, but not being satisfied with myself or my body. After losing the 14kg for Miss South Africa and following a super disciplined lifestyle for a whole year, it took me 2 full years to recover from my food and exersize obsessions to be where I am today. It was by NO means easy to go back to my natural curvy body after the pageant! With it came shame, embarrassment and self-judgement, because it felt like I let so many people down (including myself) by picking up weight. WHY was I so hard on myself? All that my body deserved was LOVE, LOVE and more LOVE! She made it through hell and high water and came out healthy on the other side. She deserves a flippin round of applause!! So if you are beating yourself up at the momeny about extra holiday weight, please stop it immediately!! You do NOT have to be perfect to deserve love and respect from yourself. You are worthy either way, with or without the extra 5kg.Β Self-hate and crazy diet restrictions will definitely NOT bring you any peace of mind in 2018. Start focusing on what is healthy for your body and soul and do more of what makes you feel GOOD about yourself. Health and happiness first, always! Love and light, may 2018 exceed all your wildest expectations πŸŽŠπŸ™Œβ€πŸ˜™

The multiplicity of women has to happen. There cannot be just one version of us. We are curvy, strong, muscular, tall, small, just to name a few, and all the same: We are women and we are ALLOWED to be proud. I am 100% celebrating ALL body shapes and sizes this summer and every day of the year πŸ‘™πŸ™Œ
How cute is this cossie of my mom that she wore on her honeymoon in the 1980's!? @annaline_hopkins 🌴🍹🌞

Precaution post: Within the next 2 days you are going to be eating, drinking and being festive... maybe more than usual πŸ˜‰πŸ·πŸ§ I can gaurantee that 90% of your are going to feel guilty afterwards and make yourself believe that you are not good and worthy enough to get in a bikini and go to the beach the next day. NONSENSE! You are allowed to honour your appetite and to FULLY enjoy this very special time of the year. There is NO reason for you to feel guilty for having dessert or a glass of champagne... because guess what!? It's your prerogative to eat what you want and have fun! You do not have to explain to anyone why you want a second helping of ice cream, least of all to the voices that whisper lies in your head. It's been a tough year, we all need some sweet release πŸ§πŸ‘Œ Forget about the diet culture CRAP that's gonna hit you in early January, I'll talk you through it when we get there πŸ’ͺ For now I want you to CELEBRATE the body that you're in and the privilege that you have to still be alive. You are NOT going to think back on the Christmas of 2017 and think: "Oh shit, I should have had one helping less ice cream." NO! We are all going to think: "I should have appreciated that special time with my loved ones even more." Live in gratitude my beauties, not in guilt and unworthiness. You are wonderfully and beautifully made to the perfect image of our Creator. A merry Christmas and blessed festive season to you all πŸŽ„πŸŽŠπŸŽβ€
