The loves of my life: Brittany Mason, activist, actress and model
The activist, actress and model on why her boyfriend is her soulmate and on what it was like to drive in Ireland for the first time.
My boyfriend. He is my soulmate, best friend, love of my life, and partner to take on the world with, all in one. He inspires me to do and be the best version of myself every day
Driving in Ireland for the first time! In America, we mostly drive automatic, and the only automatic available for me to rent was a minivan. So the first time I drove on the opposite side of the road was in a minivan, in the snow. I was terrified, but I survived
The moment of the day
When I come home after a long day to my puppy, Alfie, a fluffy little Pomeranian
The boyfriend of one of my best friends plays Hamilton in the Broadway show of the same name, and I recently saw it in New York. It was incredible, and I can't stop listening to the soundtrack
I Am by Tom Shadyac is life-changing, and a film everyone should watch
I love strong, independent women, so I'm going to have to go with Wonder Woman
Many Lives Many Masters by by Brian Weiss transformed my life. It put a lot of things into perspective about the world. After reading the book, I tried past-life regression myself and began learning and pursuing holistic healing practices.
Silk pyjamas. I feel comfortable and sexy at the same time
I love jewellery that has meaning behind it. I have my great-great-grandmother's wedding ring from around 1800. It's just a simple gold band, but I love it because of what it symbolises.
Recently Amazon released Alexa, she's basically your personal assistant for your home. She will do just about anything you need her to do
The Dean Hotel. They have the best view of the city up top, and I love the atmosphere
The pet hate
I absolutely hate negative thinking and people that gossip. I really believe that we are all made of energy, and negative energy transfers
The first friend I made in Dublin is another model named Gail. She has been so kind to me and my boyfriend, always inviting us to events, introducing me to people, and making my birthday special
The beauty product
Coconut oil for everything! I use it to take off make-up, as moisturiser, and I cook with it, because beauty starts from the inside out
Halloween - I love the idea that you can dress up, be anything you want and eat all kinds of candy. What's better than that?
Before competing for Miss Teen Indiana, I was literally shaking in my heels. A friend said to me, "That is not stage fright. Those butterflies are a sign from your body telling you that you have done absolutely everything you can to prepare for this moment." I ended up winning that pageant, then nationals, all the way to second place in the world competition
I love whiskey, and Ireland has the best! I have had the best Old-Fashioned cocktails here in Ireland
37 Dawson Street. I always have a great time there, and I love the decor
My loyalty to people. Sometimes it ends up hurting me, because there have been many times where I've gone above and beyond for people, and they were just using me. As much as that hurts, I still choose to always see the good in people
I'm obsessed with Lavande candles from Archipelago. There is something so calming about lavender and cucumber
Reading. I'm a total book nerd
Ben & Jerry's Peanut Butter Cup ice cream! Nothing beats chocolate and peanut butter
The part of my body
When I started modelling, my bum caused me issues because the fashion industry wanted super-thin models. While I am thin, I have always had a 'bubble butt'. Because of the scrutiny, I became very self-conscious, until one day I had enough. I hope every woman out there struggling with self love learns to embrace their body and to love every curve of it!
Beyonce. She's classy and gritty. Creative and fearless. I feel her work proves there are many layers to a woman. She inspires me to slay all day
