A Hopeless Romantic

with Mayara Lopes / @iwantmayara

Such an absolute honour to have you on Playboy! Tell us about your daily schedule as a model, do you have a routine? My daily schedule can be pretty crazy sometimes. I spend long hours creating content for all my social media platforms and answering fans; besides that I take care of my own bookings, finances, etc. I try going to the gym at least three times a week, but traveling for work stops me from having a rigid routine, so I just go with the flow and can’t tell you the last time I had a day off. 

How do you like to begin your day? In silence! haha It takes at least a hour for my brain to truly start working, so I take that first hour to stretch and meditate.

What are some of your biggest dreams you hope to achieve? Since I was a teenager I had two dreams: Become a Playmate and write a memoir. One of them just became reality and my book is on the works! 

What helps you decompress and relax? Making art listening to my favorite music. My mom was an artist, and I grew up surrounded by creativity, so that’s my safe place!

Who has been the most influential person in your life and why? My mom. She taught me how to be a great mother, to never give up on my dreams and to be unapologetically myself. 

How romantic are you? I’m a hopeless romantic, and I am still in search for my soulmate, the one who will make everything feel extra special!

What is the most memorable date you’ve ever had? If I can be really honest, I don’t think I was ever taken on a date that was memorable. Someone needs to change that for me! 

What was the biggest lesson from your worst breakup? Don’t change yourself for others. I would limit myself and my actions based on his expectations about me. I ended up losing myself and wasn’t happy at all. We all know it’s impossible to make others happy if you are unhappy with yourself, so I not only lost my sense of self but lost the person I was in love with. 

Would you rather be loved, respected, or admired? Loved. When you are truly loved by someone respect and admiration come with it. 

Are you a city traveller or nature explorer? City traveler! I love traveling to big cities and exploring, going to museums, site seeing, eating in great restaurants. 

What’s on your travel bucket list? There are so many places I want to visit but my top 3 is Paris, Bora Bora and Mykonos.
