10 QUESTIONS WITH DOMINIQUE ELISSA

 

Tell us a bit about yourself - Who are you and what do you do?

My names Dom and I’m a model   

What’s a day in your life?

Everyday is so different, it’s one of my favourite things about my job. I get to work with new people at different locations. Some things do stay the same though, like going to a yoga or Pilates class most mornings, and seeing my family and friends most nights. 

 What are your favourite pieces from our line?

I love the thick hoop earrings in the gold and the silver! Such a staple piece.

 

Can you tell me about any pieces of jewellery you own that means something special?

I have my great grandmas wedding ring, it’s such a special piece that I don’t actually wear it except for special occasions and family events. I get too nervous I’ll lose it. 

 

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Don’t compare yourself! It is so easy to scroll Instagram and lose confidence in yourself, I’ve been there and definitely still get in that head space at times. But the older I get, the more confident I become in myself and what I have to offer - own your individuality! 

 

What do you love about living where you do?

Would you ever consider moving anywhere else? I love Sydney, it’s definitely where I want to have a family when I get to that stage of life. I am super lucky to live a 5 minute walk to the ocean. To me, nothing is better then starting your day by the sea and I would want my children to experience this too.

 

Right now though, I have the travel bug. If I had the chance, I would live in a different city every month. I’m hoping on moving to a few different cities in the next couple of months. My job gives me that flexibility, so I’m really excited to see what the future holds. 

 

 What is the best thing about what you do?

I love the travelling! I’ve been to so many places I never thought I’d get to in my life. It is something I am grateful for everyday. I also love to be creative, and I feel so lucky that I can share this through my work. 

 

What was your personal journey to get to where you are?

When I finished school, I was just posting photos on Instagram for fun. This ended up leading to some freelance modelling jobs. After modelling under my own management for 1 year, I was scouted by my agency chic management on Instagram - the power of the internet!

 

What are your daily reminders to keep you motivated?

Both my parents are super hard workers and I have been motivated and inspired by them for a very long time. 

 

Most nights I journalise before bed, this really allows me to see visually what I want for my life and future. I always wake up feeling motivated if I’ve done this the night before.
