Bucket Babe: Jo-marie Harteveld

As the country recovers from Public Holiday syndrome and having exercised their voting right in the national election, it's back to business for everyone so here's a Bucket Babe post to ease you into the weekend. This week's featured model was born and raised in one of our neighbouring countries, her bubbly and positive personality catches you straight away, which makes her an instant hit. She lives for the moment and loves bacon, what more is there to say? I know we already have voted but this lovely lass needs your vote for the on going Swimsuit Model competition, click here to give her your support!

So, I am from Namibia originally, Windhoek. I have a huge love for animals, especially horses. I live very active , love exercise and have recently turned into a complete health nut. I love the ocean, and always wanted to be a mermaid when I grow up :P hahaha. I love food and cooking, and consider myself a real foodie. I don't have a degree like most people do, only because I refuse to have one. I believe that I just do what makes me happy and it will never be a job or work to me, and what makes me happy changes too often, to be studying for years on end for something you might never use. I'm still happy :) From this year on I will be travelling more and more often and I am so grateful to be able to do that. I've recently decided on a motto that pretty much sums up my newest outlook on life: "IT is not always about discovering new places, but to see the world with new eyes"

I love "the little things" in life and most people that know me very well knows that. I never plan to far ahead of think about the future too much as I'm a very "present-tense" person. I would have a goal just to help me work hard in the present but it never stays completely the same. Otherwise I would to walk on the runway of Victoria's Secret, but that is every female model's dream, hahaha! So it helps you to work hard anyway and it is then when all the right things and people come your way. I believe good stuff just happens to me if I don't wait around looking for it. So I've recently also met the most amazing person like that, very unexpected and he makes me happy.

My number one goal is finding true happiness and you'll be surprised in what forms it really comes and in what unexpected places you find them. Just always be open to everything, it is so important and only AFTER being open you can decide if something makes you happy or not. Be humble and never judge. Don't ever ever ever judge.
