with Olivia Marlo / @olimarlo

Such an absolute honor to have you on Playboy! Tell us about your daily schedule as a model, do you have a routine? Thank you for having me! In general, I have a strict morning routine but each day is very different. When modeling, I would start the day early usually skipping breakfast (and having an iced coffee instead lol) going straight to do hair & makeup, then arriving at location and going over the plan for the day/ shoot with the photographer and stylist, etc.

How do you like to begin your day? I like to do a 45-1hr walk along the beach, dissociate from reality then go and have breakfast at my fav cafe organize my day!

What are some of your biggest dreams you hope to achieve? I have goals not dreams and they’re very personal I owe myself a lot. Being on the cover of a magazine was definitely one of them – I hope all my exes know it was just the start.

What helps you decompress and relax? I feel like my level of “relaxed” is still somewhat not to others, I always need to be doing something or thinking about doing something.

Who has been the most influential person in your life and why? As I’ve grown up and changed so have the people who influenced me at the time and if it’s taught me anything it’s to NOT be influenced by other people and to follow your own heart/mind/instincts always.

How romantic are you? I’m actually an old-school romantic at heart! It’s the little things – handwritten notes, holding a door open, picking me up on a date, the good morning/goodnight messages, small thoughtful gifts, etc. I really appreciate someone’s efforts and go to a lot of effort for the people I love too. In saying all of this – I hate flowers lol.

What is the most memorable date you’ve ever had? I’ve always been in relationships so not spent much time “dating” for no reason but if I had to pick just one memorable time it would be eating McDonald’s in the car parked at the beach watching the thunderstorm.

What was the biggest lesson from your worst breakup? That it doesn’t matter how good of a woman you are you’ll never be good enough for someone who’s not ready to be a man.

Would you rather be loved, respected or admired? Respected for sure, I think to really love or be loved you need mutual respect. Being admired by people is nice but in reality, doesn’t mean much if there is no respect.

Are you a city traveler or nature explorer? Both! I love looking up new places/restaurants/shops and going out but I also love being carefree and going on outdoor adventures, beaches, walks, soul searching shit lol

What’s on your travel bucket list? Literally the rest of the world – anywhere I haven’t already been! I think one thing in life without a doubt is never a waste of time (or money) and that’s traveling you never come back the same person you were when you left and I love that.
