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 so much for having me What an incredible thing to now be a Playboy model! I absolutely love routine. I am such a structured person and like to know what’s next at all times. My routine at the moment is very boring. Work, the gym, catch up with friends and more work. Sometimes throw a self-care day in every now and then. I’ve been told I’m high maintenance believe it or not.

How do you like to begin your day? Caffeine and silence! Hahaha. I am not a morning person. I love a slow morning, sleep in, coffee and then get ready for the day. But generally, I begin my day by rushing out of the house to try and get to work on time 

What are some of your biggest dreams you hope to achieve? My short-term dream at the moment is to buy a house in the next 12 months. As far as my biggest long-term dreams are I’m not too sure. Probably to be a millionaire that spends all my life traveling and shopping. Just kidding – but really, I think the ultimate dream is to just be happy and healthy in life. 

What helps you decompress and relax? Definitely the gym. That’s my time of the day when no one talks to me, I don’t have to talk to anyone, and I can just listen to my music and focus on myself. I also love going out to eat with my friends. I find myself to be in such a better mindset after spending some time with people I love over a good meal and a laugh (and maybe a cocktail!).

Who has been the most influential person in your life and why? Can I say more than 1? My family. I was raised by a single mum and my grandparents. They all worked so hard to make sure I never went without anything and never felt like I missed out. I watched my mum work two jobs nearly my whole life just to make sure I got everything I could want and need. I am who I am today because of those 3 people.

How romantic are you? I like to think I’m pretty romantic. When I’m with someone I love to spoil them. I’m a sucker for gift-giving and a nice card. I consider myself to be good at planning romantic trips too. I come up with some pretty fun and unique ideas of things to do.

What is the most memorable date you’ve ever had? Wow, put on the spot with this one. A dinner date I will always remember was for my birthday one year. I was taken to a beautiful French restaurant on the water in Brisbane. We had an incredible dinner and watched the fireworks followed by going to the coolest cocktail bar I’d ever been to. It was the first time anyone had put that much effort and thought into my birthday so I will always remember that. 

What was the biggest lesson from your worst breakup? You can’t fix him! Hahaha. My ‘worst breakup’ was definitely a good breakup because it was the relationship that was bad. I learned more from this than I ever could have imagined. I completely lost myself, so I had to relearn who I was and what I wanted. The biggest lesson was always to be true to yourself, if it doesn’t feel right it probably isn’t and you should never put yourself second for anybody. Listen to your instincts – they are there for a reason. 

Would you rather be loved, respected, or admired? Respected 100%. I’d never want to be loved by someone that didn’t respect me as a person. Can you even really love someone with respect?

Are you a city traveler or nature explorer? Without a doubt a city traveler. Anyone that knows me knows I am not a nature girl! If there’s a risk of getting muddy or anything will slither near me, I’m not going. The idea of camping? Don’t even get me started on that!

What’s on your travel bucket list? Soo many places. Unfortunately, I’m absolutely terrified of flying so I’ve never gone overseas. It’s something I’ve really worked hard on the last couple of years to overcome by going interstate every few months. Next year I’ll be braving the overseas. I’d love to see places like Greece, Paris, Italy and then LA, Vegas and Hollywood. 

Where can our readers catch up with you and stay updated with your work? I’m pretty terrible at keeping social media updated. My Instagram handle is @jessss.a.p. I do plan on becoming more active on social media so keep an eye out there.
