Did my heart love till now? Forswear it sight, For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.
~ Romeo and Juliet.~
PIM: Sam, Sam.You are truely Poetry in Motion. Pim was blessed to meet you in exclusive one on one. I must say Top 10 for FHM 2009 is truly blessed to have you there, and so is PIM. First things first. A stunning Beautician & Horse Rider in the world of modeling. How did the journey begin. Where have your exploits taken you….. Tell Tell? What are some of your major achievements?
sam: Well, lets see… I started modeling at the age of 17 in Cape Town. I lived there for a few years, where I did matric and then studied. During school and college I found it very difficult to go to casting, shoots etc, so I didn’t really put my all into it at that stage. When I moved back to JHB I got back into it and joined Star Models, having my own business definitely makes it easier to model as my time is flexible! One of my biggest achievements was opening my salon back in 2007. I decided one day that I wanted my own thing, took the plunge and have been very happy ever since!
sam: Yes I am very chuffed to be in the top 10! At first when you make it to the top 100, top 10 feel s very out of reach. The day the top 10 was announced the competition was on! Now is when we all start putting our all in to winning this competition. The journey has been great, I had the opportunity to meet the other 9 girls at the official shoot for the magazine, which is out on Jan 28th! They are all lovely and we all got on great! But at the end of the day… we are in a competition 🙂
P.I.M: Sam…anything youd like to say.A message for our readers to entice them to vote for you?
sam: I called Sarah Palin, but unfortunately she was a bit out of my price range: ) so I guess it’ll boil down to exposure and getting my name out there! The winner receives a spread in the magazine, a cash prize and of course… the title! Which hopefully will help boost your career and open up new opportunities? I am excited so better stay positive!!!
sam: I like adventure and the outdoors. I am a very active person and love to exercise! I have been scuba diving since I was 13 and love it, sharks are an exciting part of it, not just great whites, but reef sharks, nurse sharks, any sharks! As for the jungle, I would love to rough it for a month or so in the Amazon learning about and exploring the Aztec and Inca ruins etc.
ccess with your business Sam and we definitely recommend clients to have a treatment at your place. For our readers what treatments do you offer at this beauty haven surrounded by Nature?
sam: Thanks I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂 I offer most treatments, manicures, pedicures, waxing, permanent make-up, permanent hair removal etc, however I specialize in skin care, I have a wide range of facials, to suit any skin condition. I use Babor Skin Care products at Lime.
sam: Well I’m usually not booked up the whole day at the salon, so the morning will start of with gym, then ill go to the salon for a few hours, after finishing my clients I will sometimes have a few castings or a half day shoot, then its home to cook supper!.
sam: Well I try to gym 5 or 6 times a week, but I do have my lazy days too! Recently I have discovered a fabulous new way to stay fit and have fun at the same time, Salsa Dancing! I attend classes at Come Salsa with Strictly Come Dancing’s Thabo Moloto! He is extremely and talented and patient… hehehe!
sam: I would make a scrumptious lamb and lentil curry for those cold winter nights, followed by a smooth lemon cheesecake!
sam: Jessy Clegg! Up and coming singer and son of Johnny Clegg! Very cute and what a voice!
sam: Well if PIM thinks its my eyes, then I suppose that’s a goodie 🙂 As for a guy, it’s definatly eyes and hands!
sam: I wish I had a cool story to tell you. I’ve had a few of the good old standards used on me, but nothing to spectacular.
sam: I don’t think there is a government in the world who everybody is happy with, and ours is no exception. For the most part I think they are doing ok, but I really wish they could sort out the crime! I certainly hope that 2010 goes smoothly… otherwise all the traffic on the highways has been for nothing:)
sam: I got an A for art at school!
sam: I think you reading a bit too much into this whole modeling thing! It’s not simple but it’s definitely not rocket science. It’s just about being comfortable in your own skin and in front of others!
sam: Elizabeth Hurley.
I think she is beautiful classy!
sam: Not too much… Just good food, good conversation and no pretence.
