My name’s Emily and I’m a model and full-time biomedical science student.
What inspires your fashion style and where do you love to shop from?
I wouldn’t say I stick to one specific style. My style is broad, and it ranges from various phases of my life. For example, I love dressing in a grungy, gothic style sometimes as it reflects my 2015 emo phase.
Yet, sometimes, I like a softer, pinker style that reflects the time in my life I spent cosplaying and watching anime (I still watch anime from time to time). I like to get my clothes second hand as I don’t like feeding so much into the fast fashion industry and I find that you can find the most individual clothing pieces that no one else has if you shop second hand.
Do you follow a regular workout or beauty regime?
I can’t say I have any sort of workout routine, although I probably should, but I do follow a simple skincare regime. Nothing too ridiculous though as I live a relatively busy lifestyle and I doubt I could keep up with an intricate skin care routine.
How is a typical day like for you?
I’m a student studying a biomedical science degree currently and, since I’m on my placement year now, I work a lot. I typically start my day off with a coffee and head into work in the laboratory for my typical shift.
Once home, I like to wind down and burn some scented wax and just chill out in the evenings with a movie and maybe some snacks.
What have you always wanted to do or learn but have yet to find the time for it?
I’ve always wanted to get better at roller skating. I’ve done it for around 10 years on and off and even used to work at a roller rink. Although, I’ve never had the time to learn tricks or anything other than how to go fast. I still keep my roller skates in my car though… just incase the situation calls for roller skates.
Have you been in an embarrassing situation before that is funny now when looking back?
There was a time at Starbucks when the woman serving asked me if my name was spelt Emily with a ‘y’ or Emilie with an ‘ie’ and I jokingly said, ‘the right way with a ‘y’’. As I got my coffee, I looked at her name tag and it was Bethanie with an ‘ie’…. I felt terrible…
Would you rather be able to play every musical instrument or master every type of sport?
I would love to be able to play every type of musical instrument as I’ve never really been able to play anything other than the stereotypical wonder wall on guitar. I own three guitars but can’t play any of them.
I also love music and spent quite a few teenage years playing roles in musicals and shows but could never do anything more than sing.
What turns you off on a date?
I haven’t been on a date in quite a while, but I’d have to say general manners. If, for example, I were to be taken to a restaurant and the person I was with was rude to staff, it’d be over really quick.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Emily. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
For me it’s most important to see one’s self as sexy, it’s not necessarily due to physical attributes either. I’d have to say that self-confidence is how I would define sexy.
