Beauticate was lucky enough to be invited into the Art Deco apartment she shares with fiancé, Dan, in Sydney’s Elizabeth Bay. The abode was adorned with eclectic bits and bobs and, to our delight, a serious space dedicated to beauty. We were dying to know the makeup aficionado’s tips and tricks so it was lucky Ksenija was open to sharing her fabulous beauty insights along with her culinary conquests and the workout that keeps her fit on film.
I never used to like exercise……but my fiancé has always exercised a lot and in the last two years, I have started exercising four to five times a week and I love it. I feel so much better. I train with Transform Health; he’s a personal trainer called Jordan Ponder. I train down at the park or at his gym with a lot of circuit and body weight training and he’s incredible. He’s transformed me – I’m so much stronger and fitter. He trains a lot of models (Nic Trunfio, Jess Gomes and VS model Bridget Malcolm) so he gets the lean thing. Then I do yoga twice a week at BodyMindLife. I also do circuit training with Dan – we go to the park or beach or go for a run along Bondi.
