When our Mishkah babe Kristina pops into the studio each week, it’s always a laugh and a ball of fun. So we thought it’d only be fitting to introduce her to you all and just like us, she’ll have you totally smitten. Get to know a little about the Dutch/Brazilian beauty below in 12 questions. Catch more of her over at Mishkah or give her a cheeky follow @kristinamendonca.
Q1. Your schedule must be flat chat. How do you unwind after a busy day?
I always go to my boyfriend Hugh’s place after work. I’m not sure how he does it but he always makes me feel so relaxed. Oh and also playing with my puppies!
Q2. What are you ‘go to’ essentials for Spring/Summer?
Apart from some sunscreen, your surfboard and a camera to capture everything, you don’t really need much else!
Q3. Where do you find yourself on weekends?
I always try to catch up with friends as I don’t really get a chance to see them during the week. I also love to go to the beach or just hang by my pool.
Q4. What’s your fave song at the moment?
Oooh, that’s a hard one. I would have to say ‘Like An Animal’ by Rufus.
Q5. What’s your fitness quick fix?
Going for a 30min run always fixes me. Afterwards I feel so good and it makes me feel less guilty for all the pizza I eat.
Q6. How would you describe your style?
I love simple outfits. I have about a hundred jumpsuits, a hundred pairs of comfy shorts and thousands of oversized tops. Black and/or white is what you’ll find me in mostly however nothing can beat a pair of boots with some high waisted shorts and a casual tee.
Q7. If you weren’t a model, what other profession would you want to be doing instead?
I think I would be at uni and studying International Business. My mum is in the corporate world down in Sydney so I would more than likely be living there and trying to make my way to the top!
Q8. What beauty tips do you swear by?
Wash and clean your face twice a day so in the morning and again at night. I have the feeling of having makeup on for more than a few hours so whenever I get a chance, I always love to give my face a good old exfoliate with some cleanser.
Q9. What are your guilty pleasures food wise?
Oh there are SO many! I love caramel slice, the best for sure! I also love pizza, hot chips, ice cream, chocolate and the list goes on!
Q10. What are some of the perks that come with your job?
You get to meet the most amazing people. After awhile you feel as if you’re working with your family. You get to see the most beautiful places and experience crazy new adventures. Also getting your hair and makeup done is always a plus, so relaxing!
Q11. Who inspires you?
That’s a hard one, I have a lot of people that I look up to but I would have to say my mum. She is amazing! Everyday she seems to amaze me with what she does. I don’t get to see her very often as we live in different states. She inspires me to believe I can achieve anything.
Q12. Last but not least, what do you love most about modelling?
I love how I’m always working in different locations. Some days I might be in a studio and other days if might be on the beach on at a waterfall. I always get to see new places.
