SimplySxy catches up with Samantha to learn more about her fashion style, interests and beauty regime!
That is so kind, thank you for having me. I’m a journalist/ writer specialising in the fitness industry and the sub-editor of Muscle and Health.
How will you describe your fashion style and where do you draw inspiration from?
I love tight fitting clothes that show your figure but don’t reveal too much skin. In the daytime you’ll probably catch me looking casual in skinny jeans and a bodysuit with Timbos or Air Max 90s.
For nighttime, I like to make an effort with nude Loubs and a red or black dress; I’m really into cut out styles at the moment that show a little bit of the top of your midriff.
What is your beauty regime like and do you use any beauty products?
Pre-COVID, my beauty regime was dire, but I’ve started being much more vigilant and my skin is so much better for it. The lockdown-induced break from makeup has helped too. I use lots of beauty products at the moment; a weekly peel or facemask, cleanser, toner, moisturiser, eye cream. I have a cream for everything!
What hobbies or interests do you have?
My life pretty much consists of working and working out! I love to stretch and lift weights and food and cooking is my obsession. I’m really into food provenance, and shamefully, I’m one of those meal prepping Tupperware pests, ha!
Which 3 activities do you recommend to everyone who visits your city?
I’m based in the Midlands (UK). You have to visit Warwick Castle, if you’re ever in the area. It’s a sight to behold. For a leisurely wander, The Parade in Leamington Spa is beautiful and a lovely place to grab a coffee and people watch. For a bit of nature, Ryton Pools is my favourite.
If you could time travel, where will you love to go and witness?
Am I allowed to buy a lottery ticket in this scenario or take out some shares in Apple and Microsoft? Lol! Art deco has always appealed to me, it’s just so stylish. So, transport me into a scene from the Great Gasby please.
Would you rather invent a new gadget or discover a new species?
Easy one! 100% invent a new gadget. I would love to solve a problem for people and obviously… royalties.
What turns you off on a date?
My biggest turnoff of all time is unpolite people; manners cost nothing. If someone was rude to the waiter, I think I would want to escape from the bathroom!
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Samantha. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
That is my pleasure! Thank you so much.
Good question! I think confidence and positivity personifies “sexy”, I love pragmatism, ambition, and a good sense of humour. I gravitate towards an alpha. Superficially, I’m really into the sound of people’s voices and a good set of traps is my weakness, ha!
