It’s been a long time coming. We’ve been waiting patiently for the opportunity to bring you Carmen Crous as our LW Babe of the Week. Wondering why? Just take a look at this gorgeous girl!
Full name: Carmen Crous
Day job: Stylist
Likes: Rain, food, wine and fitness
Dislikes: Mean people, broccoli and walking too far
Special talents: Writing and painting
Give us some insight into who Carmen Crous is?
Well I’m a pretty straight forward type of girl. No pretense, what you see is what you get . People often think of me as “plastic” because of my appearance but 100% of the time proved wrong when they meet me.
What makes you happy?
Way too much to list! But food and wine is definitely at the top.
What is the nicest thing anyone has said or done for you?
Someone believed in me enough and allowed me to quit my job as a medical rep and pursue my passion as a make-up artist and stylist, without having to worry about anything financially. Best gift ever!
Where and what would you rather be doing right now?
Definitely somewhere in a cabin where it’s snowing, with wine in-front of a fireplace and a good plate of pasta.
What can you never leave home without?
My cell phone charger, iPhone battery is like zero.
What’s the first thing you do when you wake up and the last thing you do before going to sleep?
First thing, I stretch so much I feel like I’ve stretched my entire life back together and before bed I always brush them pearly whites.
If we had he opportunity to take you on a date, what would you expect from us?
Always smell nice. Don’t allow awkward silence. Don’t make it too romantic. Cook something or take me somewhere where the food is really good. Please don’t make me dress up, I would end up canceling the date because I get too nervous.
What is your kryptonite?
A well built physique and good manners.
What are your do’s and don’t’s when it comes to flirting?
Don’t ever touch me, especially if I don’t know you. I’m quite big on personal space! Don’t be cocky, you’ll seem like a player. Rather be cheesy, girls like that.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your flirting skills?
I’m probably a 5, because I’m awkward. I really struggle to be sexy or seductive [laughs].
What type of guy does it for you?
For me it’s definitely a guy who can let me be me. I’m quite overpowering, my personality is big. But once a guy knows how to make me feel like it’s ok to not always have it all figured out, I’m sold. Also, he most definitely has to show me off to the world.
Leave us with some words of wisdom?
Never allow the world to change you. Don’t forget to tell people you love them everyday. Be kind to others, it could make a really big difference to their life.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when we mention:
Blondes? Ryno Saaiman.
Brunettes? I look like Joe Dirt with dark hair.
Fitness? Don’t obsess.
Sexy? Self confidence and good posture.
Desire? Abs (never gonna happen – because food).
Hilarious? My comebacks, I’m quite the clown.
