Fourteen days, eleven of our gorgeous models and two epic luxury resorts. Yes, this is how MAXIM does Phuket…
Tell us a little bit about yourself, Olivia.
From the quiet Yarra Valley girl to MAXIM cover girl I feel like my life story has evolved a lot in the past 12 months! I’d always dabbled in modelling but being presented on the cover of this magazine has offered some amazing opportunities for me including travel to Africa, Thailand and Fiji – thank you! I was then fortunate enough to start freelance modelling both in Australia and in London and since then I have set out some big plans for myself in 2020.
What would people be most surprised to know about you?
I’m a bit of a spiritual guru, I love crystals and oracle cards and truly surrounding myself with healthy energy through self-talk and daily rituals.
Describe yourself in five words.
Goal-driven, loyal, curious, spiritual and down-to-earth – this totally encapsulates my star sign, Taurus.
What is your best asset?
I really appreciate my compassion for other people. Physically, I’d say that I am complimented on my smile a lot. I love this because it just makes my smile bigger.
When do you feel sexy?
Looking after my body, my mind and creating a daily focus around my eight dimensions of health! I can’t stress enough that self-love is far more important than just putting on a sexy persona — feeling truly sexy is the embodiment of your own relationship with yourself.
What do you do when you’re not posing for MAXIM?
Bookkeeping, entrepreneurship, travelling and gym!
What do you look for in a man?
I don’t look for anything. If the chemistry is real then I trust myself that this person is worth investing time in.
What is your life motto?
As we grow, we change and my motto changes quite often depending on what’s resonating with me at the time. At the moment my current motto is, “Live and let live” – it motivates me to focus only on what I can control and let go of what I can’t. It’s great and it just really makes me chill out!
What’s next for you?
I’ve been working tirelessly on releasing an online women’s fitness apparel store in 2020 and I plan to have this all come to life in the coming months! Not only is this keeping me busy but I have also teamed up as an ambassador with some pretty exciting brands this year who I can’t wait to announce soon.
