What is the highlight of your week?
Driving out to our family farm over weekends.
What does a day in the life of Nikita consist of?
Starting my day with a coffee is essential before hitting the gym. The rest of my day would be spent at work or in front of my books with a sneaky afternoon nap. Usually followed by dinner with friends or family.

Warm summer nights. Outdoor events and festivals. Spending quality time with loved ones.
What are your pros and cons of living in Cape Town?
Pros: The breathtaking scenery, great diversity of people and an unlimited amount of activities.
Cons: Terrible traffic and not enough parking.
If you could travel to any holiday destination, where would you go and who would you take with?
I would definitely visit Bali again with Adventurous. I’d take with open minded friends or family.
Given the opportunity to spend an evening with your celebrity crush, Who would it be with and how do you see the night going?
Dave Franco. A breathtaking view with endless conversation over a few bottles of wine and a lot of laughter.

I have three sisters.
I went to boarding school since the age of six.
I studied veterinary physiotherapy before entering the fashion world.

What are your pet peeves?
Driving too slow in the fast lane.
When it comes to guys, what type grabs your attention?
A taller and confident guy that will challenge me and allow me the freedom to be.
How would you rate your flirting skills?
Zero! I can never tell whether a guy is into me and the day I actually try to flirt it is often perceived as sarcasm.
Sex appeal – the do’s and don’ts?
Do’s: Smile sincerely, dress well, confident posture and eye contact!
Don’ts: Egocentrism and pretending to be something that you’re not.

Posing? A good massage for a stiff back the following day.
Turn on? Anything that makes me smile.
Turn off? Disrespect.
