Describe yourself in one word.
Do you have a mantra?
I have several. What you give is the most important thing in life. Happiness = Smiles + Frowns. Just because you don't have, doesn't mean you can't make it up!
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? Any regrets?
Understand myself better when I was younger and pursue my fashion designer career. So, I could be the Creative Chief Officer at Vogue now.
How would you like to be remembered? ❤
Fun-loving, Compassionate and a Kind Person.
Any bad habit’s? :S
Bite my fingernails, still. An annoying habit! :S
What person do you admire most? ❦
Maria Shriver and Sheryl Sandberg
How do you indulge yourself? ❦
A nice glass of woodsy pinot noir
Fill in the blank…I wish I could… ❦
Get my act together. Sometimes I get way off track and it's hard to get focused. It's harder as I get older.
Spiritual inner strength. There are times I have to ask myself this question, again and again. I love to live life to the fullest, so I can look back and share my stories.
If your house were on fire, what one thing would you save? ❥
Self and husband. (and if daughter were home, daughter)
What has been your most surreal, “pinch-me-I’m-dreaming” moment so far? ♡
Standing ovation in front of South African Leaders, in Johannesburg. And, attended the Oscars meeting all sorts of movie stars, who looked at me and asked, "What show are you on?" That made me blush!
I wanted to be a famous Fashion Designer when I first started college.
What is your biggest fault? ♡
I sometimes overlook the little things and people unfortunately get hurt as a by-product.
What has been your most spectacular failure? ♡
Work and my Career.
What’s next for you? ♥
Publishing my upcoming books, producing my kids TV pilot and looking at a BIG screen Movie Storyline.
