Who is Kirsten Wylie?
Kirsten Wylie, is a devoted, enthusiastic, kind hearted, caring, motivated, bubbly, thoughtful, hard working (when out to the test) individual that loves life itself. Loves adventures and is constantly looking for the next best thing for herself and working on nothing but herself.
What can you usually be found doing on the weekends?
The beach would be your best bet, to find me taking a fresh dip in the ocean, taking photos, tanning, hiking if the weather is good. Mainly looking for an adventure is where you’ll find me, that’s if you find me.
Based in Plettenberg Bay what are some of your favourite spots on the Garden Route?
Ive recently moved to Cape Town but I know Plett like the back of my hand. Natures Valley is an all time favorite of mine because of its greenery, absolutely stunning hiking trails and the beautiful beaches. Same goes for Plett really and most of the areas – Keurbooms offers an insane day on the river with a jumping rock and so much more. The overall thing is mainly the pure beauty of the whole Garden Route area and its active things to do. I’m also a huge fan of a day on the beach, tanning, strolls, listening to music, eating good food and chilling with friends, and Robberg Beach would be the best place for that and also one of my favorite places.
Which is your favorite city/ town in South Africa?
I would have to say Plett, it is my hometown and I’ve grown up there. It’s just such a stunning place to live, everything about it is phenomenal and you can have the best times there if you do it with the right people and see the all the beautiful places it has to offer.
Faced with the option of doing something you’re scared of or something you’re comfortable with, which do you chose?
I guess that depends really, if you’re referring to sacred as in doing something like bungee jumping or something that upsets you in a sense. If it gives you an adrenaline rush and you won’t die [laughs], I’m in and getting out of your comfort zone is scary but it has to be done. I’m one to constantly challenge myself in that sense.
In your opinion, what are some of your best features and qualities?
I do have a good body because I work really hard for what I want and what I’m able to achieve. I’m quite a softy, which I feel is a great quality to have considering what our generation is like. I laugh at everything, many people say it’s because I’m blonde but sometimes the things people say are pretty foolish and I can’t help but be happy and laugh at things. I’m a genuine person I would say. Personally, my self esteem has been low and to a certain extent I find it difficult to talk about myself as such, I’d prefer to say good things about other people than myself.
What do you think men find so intriguing about women?
This question I found quite interesting, Men, I can’t say exactly, still can’t figure out the species if you know what I mean but I purely think men are all different. I’m not going to sugar coat it, men like woman more for their appearance and learn to love us later [laughs].
And women about men?
It’s also hard to say, woman go more for the personality than I’d say the ripped abs and good physique, that’s why I believe woman wear make up and men smooth talk.
What should and shouldn’t happen on first dates?
The generation now days is quite different compared to how it used to be. I don’t even think people really go on “dates” anymore. But I would say, whatever happens, happens. I would like to get flowers and be spoilt rotten, have my door opened and seat pushed in, a quiet candle lit dinner, something romantic, and spilt the bill. But, unfortunately times have changed.
What are you looking forward to most in 2018?
New beginnings and new Adventures. I just want everything to go up from here and for my life to start taking its course.
If you could be any one person for a day, who would it be and what would you get up to?
A billionaire and I’d give all the money towards poverty and animal shelters, and deposit a fair portion into my own bank account [laughs].
What can’t you leave home without?
