Dedicated & Adventurous

with Gia Marie / @Playmate_GiaMarie. 

Such an absolute honor to have you on Playboy! Tell us about your daily schedule as a model, do you have a routine? How do you like to begin your day? I begin my day with twenty minutes of meditation. Followed by a morning walk along with stretching then I come home and have a bowl of oats and berries I have a very healthy lifestyle. I am trying to live to be 200 years old. It’s not about restrictions or strict rules; it’s about nourishing my body and treating it with love and respect. The positive impact on my physical and mental well-being is undeniable, and I couldn’t be happier with the way I feel. 

What are some of the biggest dreams you hope to achieve? I want to own several properties and eventually buy land that I can sustain myself and bring along family and friends. Live off the grid pretty much. Of course, this dream is a work in progress. It takes careful planning, research, and commitment to make it a reality. But I believe that with dedication and a little bit of adventure, I can create a life that aligns with my values and brings me closer to nature. 

What helps you decompress and relax? I love going to the spa and pampering myself there’s nothing better than a full body massage followed by a facial. The moment you enter the spa, a sense of calm washes over you. The soothing ambiance, soft lighting, and tranquil music create a serene atmosphere that instantly puts your mind and body at ease.

Who has been the most influential person in your life and why? The most influential person would have to be my late father. His passing last year rocked my world. He taught me kindness and forgiveness and I believe those are the best gifts you can give or receive. I am incredibly grateful for the privilege of having such an amazing father in my life. His influence has shaped my character, and his love has enriched my soul. I am proud to call him my father, and I will forever cherish the bond we shared. 

How romantic are you? I love romance. Romantic movies, romantic dates, love is the strongest force in the universe without love we would be lost. When I am in love I go above and beyond for my partner. I enjoy planning surprises and grand destination vacations for them. For example, I planned a breathtaking romantic sunset cruise. Sailing together on a private yacht, we watched as the sun dipped below the horizon, painting the sky with hues of gold, pink, and orange. It was a moment of pure romance and tranquillity, and we felt like the only two people in the world. 

What is the most memorable date you’ve ever had? My last boyfriend planned a trip to the Maldives for my birthday it was magical. I can’t even begin to describe the feeling of utter bliss and serenity that surrounded me throughout my Maldives vacation. It was a dream come true, an escape from the mundane to a world of unparalleled natural beauty. I returned home with a heart full of memories and a soul rejuvenated, forever grateful for the opportunity to experience such luxury and tranquillity. 

What was the biggest lesson from your worst breakup? My worst breakup became a catalyst for personal growth and self-discovery. It taught me that resilience and strength lie within me and that I have the power to create my happiness. It showed me the importance of loving and valuing myself, independent of any romantic relationship. I emerged from that painful experience with a greater sense of self-awareness, inner strength, and a newfound appreciation for the journey of self-love and personal growth. 

Would you rather be loved, respected, or admired? For me, the feeling of being loved is priceless. Being loved brings a sense of security and belonging. It’s knowing that you have a safe space where you can be your authentic self without judgment. You are accepted for your strengths and weaknesses, your quirks, and imperfections. It is an uplifting and empowering feeling to know that you are seen and loved for who you truly are. 

Are you a city traveler or a nature explorer? When I’m surrounded by nature, I feel a deep connection with the Earth and its elements. It’s an escape from the noise and fast pace of everyday life. There’s a certain serenity that comes from being surrounded by towering trees, hearing the melodies of birdsong, or gazing at a star-filled sky on a clear night. Nature has a way of grounding me, reminding me of the beauty and simplicity that exist beyond the complexities of our modern world. The serenity of nature also draws me toward oceans and coastal areas. Standing at the edge of an expansive shoreline, listening to the rhythmic crashing of waves, fills me with a profound sense of peace. 

What’s on your travel bucket list? I have been dreaming about Santorini Greece for ages and my dreams will be coming true this June! I’m so excited to bask in the beauty of this picturesque island, with its white-washed buildings, blue-domed churches, and breathtaking sunsets over the Aegean Sea. I can’t wait to indulge in the flavors of the Mediterranean and savor freshly caught seafood. I’m most looking forward to becoming immersed in this dreamlike destination, where natural beauty, rich history, and warm Greek hospitality come together.
