We know.

You are ready to hear from Billie.

Got it.

Onto the Otter Ten!

1. Do you prefer coffee or tea?
“I love you green tea, but due to a busy lifestyle my answer is coffee. I like it strong and with soymilk.”

2. How do you prepare for a long flight?
“I wash my face, braid my hair and put on the most pajama-like clothing possible. I also fill my iPod with new albums and podcasts I’d been meaning to listen to.”

“Oh and water, I must take water.”

3. If you received a multi-million dollar payday, what would you do?
“I’d buy two houses in two very beautiful locations. Then, I would fly my friends to each of the houses to celebrate and have an extended holiday-like housewarming.”

“Next, I would take my family on a holiday of their choice (which would be the Greek Islands) to say thank you for putting up with me.”

4. What’s your must-visit place, if you only had one holiday to plan?
“That’s a very difficult choice, but I’m going to say India. It’s like nowhere else.”

5. What’s your favorite animal?
“Koala / Platypus / Dolphin / Fox.”

6. What does modeling offer you?
“A chance to work with some really beautiful and creative people.”

7. What do we find in your beach bag?
“A sarong, coconut sunscreen, a good book, a camera and probably some fruit.”

8. What’s your go-to fashion brand? Or, is there a particular brand you are crushing on right now?
“To be honest, I don’t regularly buy from fashion brands and prefer to wear adopted vintage pieces I’ve gathered.”

“But, labels like Free People, She Made Me and Sugar High Love Stoned are divine. I also have a big crush on a new label, Réalisation Par, at the moment.”

9. What’s your must-have beauty product?
“Coconut oil – for both hair and skin. I’m not a big believer in much else! I stick with natural things.”

10. What does your perfect day off include?
“Awake from a solid eight-hour sleep, make an extravagant fruit salad or something else delicious, maybe some Pilates and then an adventure to a new beach I haven’t yet explored.”

“Also, a nap at 3pm is always ideal. Then, possibly some night time wine beverages with close friends.”
