As we head into winter, we’re holding onto those summer vibes – beach vibes with our LW Babe of the Week, Anje Kruger.
Full name: Anje Kruger
Day job: Freelance model and hostess
Likes: Anything artsy. Adrenaline packed adventures. Festivity. Rodeos, definitely rodeos.
Dislikes: People with no sense of individuality or enthusiasm about inappropriate things
Special talents: Making inappropriate jokes. Being clumsy. I’m pretty good with shotguns too
Give us a quick introduction to Anje?
Just an average girl who either goes cowboy or princess – there is no in between. Either you catch me on a dirt-bike or obsessing over my new wardrobe. Did I mention I can handle a shotgun?!
What does a day in your life consist of?
Mainly seeking opportunities and overcoming obstacles, either in the gym or my finances. Also meeting new people. I don’t have a lot of friends, I think it’s a waste of time.
If you could live in one person’s shoes for a day – who would it be and what would you get up to?
Probably my brother’s. He’s always the mastermind behind any mischief. I’d probably try to design a potato bomb.
What was your highlight of your shoot with us for this feature?
Probably shooting with my top off. It always evokes the best part of me to feel completely exposed yet completely safe and admired at the same time.
Winter is here. What are your pros and cons of the cold season?
Pros – Winter fashion and nipple stands.
Cons – Less options for outdoor adventures.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you?
I graduated when I was 16 and started a business before starting my studies.
If you could go back to any age, which would it be and why?
Seventeen. Just, seventeen again.
When it comes to guys, what type grabs your attention?
I’m not into boys, I’m into men. But, on a serious note. I like men who don’t fool around too much and accept their responsibilities.
How would you best explain your ultimate getaway?
A cabin in the Alpes. Snow falling gently in the background. The fireplace going as I sip my coffee while staring into the dreamy eyes of my lover.
If you had the opportunity to live out one of the things on your bucket list, what would it be?
To save a life. It’s the only thing on my bucket list I haven’t yet accomplished.
What scares you?
Being alone in the dark. Just floating in the uncomfortable empty space between your thoughts and the unknown.
What inspires you?
Successful people. They love themselves enough to put their own needs first in order to succeed. It’s difficult to put your own needs first.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when we mention:
Late nights? The smell of wood crackling, bonfires and cuddles.
Good times? Cape Town.
Adventurous? I tend to disappear for weeks at a time and always return with amazing stories and thousands of photos.
Life goals? Having enough money to not worry about money.
Turn on? Skin. Lips. Skin.
Turn off? Racism, homophobia, crazy religious people and bad breath.
