Most interesting person you met (on or off screen)?
Carolina Cronenberg, her passion for her line of new beauty products was incredible!... I was inspired by the way she was exploring new techniques for beauty care and makeup and using ingredients from her own backyard... such an intelligent woman too, she has impressive university credentials, but to choose to change her career, to do things her way and create an amazing range of natural products is so cool! She was gentle beautiful and inspiring!
Of course, I also loved Dr Pitanguy too! I was so surprised by his thoughts on beauty and that he was more taken with inner beauty! ❤️
Best beauty product or secret...
The Amazon! Its rich with fruits & nuts with a number of health and beauty benefits... There was an endless supply of intriguing fruits and nuts I hadn't come across..
Must have fashion item…
Football .. The love of the game there is infectious!
Try any good foods?
All the fruit in the markets were incredible - I wanted to ship them all home !
Most beautiful scenery, place or sight?
Salvador was brilliant in color and culture , the town square was full of people singing and it made me just want to get up and dance! There was always something to watch, always someone to welcome you, to ask you to join in to whatever they were doing ! The old buildings there were incredible too - with both African and European influence . Rio was cool too.
Something you learned...
To see people embrace what I have always believed - love your body no matter what shape or size . The idea of being sexy and at peace with your whole self including your physical body is a total feeling of self acceptance - this is who I am .. & I LOVE IT!!
Also loved learning capoeira the dance martial art. It was difficult at first to learn, but once I got involved it was like a beautiful dance!
Tell us a story from the road
one night I was off, just walking the streets and every few feet was someone playing an instrument .. I passed a man playing the violin. He danced, and people watched . There were people gathering in huge crowds too eating on the hillsides...talking , laughing involved with life and each other - and surprsingly not on their phones ! I just sat and had dinner outside and took the whole atmosphere in !
Funniest moment (on or off screen)?
Definitely the work out on the beach with all those men flexing their muscles !
