She owns the dreamiest Instagram and knows a thing or two about rocking a swimsuit with confidence: the gorgeous Maya Sophie likes to turn up the heat and definitely got us all carried away. But there is much more then those golden locks, sunny glow and a body to die for: get to know the golden girl and her wicked ways.
Tell us something no one knows about you.
I have a phobia of frogs. Spiders and snakes – not a problem for me. But frogs… I just can’t!
Can you describe your life in a song?
I have spent a lot of time thinking about this question and I just don’t know… It is really difficult to describe your own life in lyrics. Sorry!
To try before you die?
I dream of starting my own brand one day. I don’t know exactly what the product would be and it is not something that will happen tomorrow obviously, but one day I hope to start my own company. I like the idea of starting something from scratch and (hopefully) watch it grow.
When was the last time you were really proud of yourself?
When I graduated last year. School was never really my thing so I was really proud when I graduated. The last 4 years of school weren’t the best, so it was a massive relief for me to be done with it.
My style is a mix of..
Classic, girly and edgy. I wouldn’t say that I stick to one specific style always. My style can change a lot and it depends on my mood, the season and the situation. I personally love mixing more feminine pieces like a pretty dress with more edgy pieces like some black lace up boots.
Who is your girl crush?
I think Rosie Huntington, Margot Robbie and Candice Swanepoel are all really inspiring women. They are extremely beautiful but they also seem genuine and kind.
What trend will you never get tired of?
I personally think a good blazer suits everybody. There is nothing more classic. I have a few blazers in my wardrobe and they can all be dressed up or down. I love multifunctional pieces, what makes them so wearable.
You’re secret beauty trick?
My hair is very long and I get highlights done every three months so it needs a lot of care and moisture. Once a week I sleep with a hair mask in the ends of my hair (from the ears and down). I soak my hair in the mask, tie my hair up in a bun and tie a plastic bag around the hair so it isn’t so messy when you sleep. If your hair is extra dry you can even use coconut oil. It works wonders.
There is nothing worse than a person who has no situational awareness.
Most expensive purchase?
My Chanel Boy bag. Chanel bags are expensive but this model is timeless and I will have it in my wardrobe forever.
Where do you see yourself in ten years from now?
By then I will be 31 years old. I like to see myself doing something that truly interests me and hopefully I will have my own house. I want to have traveled a lot more and experienced more of the world.
I feel most confident when I..
.. am on a sunny vacation. When I travel I feel more energized, motivated, positive, happy and I also feel more confident. Hair gets lighter, skin gets darker and freckles appear. That’s when I feel most beautiful.
What’s on your bucket list?
I really want to experience the Maldives. It looks so magical to me. Other dream destinations are Bora Bora, Mexico, Bali and Kenya.
What’s your favorite Instagram account?
Ah that’s a tough choice! I follow so many beautiful and inspiring accounts… Some of my favorites are – ohhcouture, oliviaculpo, alexisren and negin_mirsalehi.
Are you all fun and games or the serious type?
I consider myself a mix of the two. It really depends on the situation that I find myself in. I think it is really important that people contain both qualities. There is nothing worse than a person who has no situational awareness.
