Hope you lovvvvveee this interview as much as I do; check it:

| Introduce yourself |: 

I’m Alyssa Julya Smith & I am represented by NEXT Los Angeles & Wilhelmina Miami.

I’m an actress and model based out of Los Angeles temporarily residing in Miami Beach. I was born and raised in Newport Beach, California & moved to Los Angeles while I was attending the University of Southern California. I’ve done print and commercial campaigns for AXE Body Spray, JC Penny, Juicy Couture, AG Jeans, True Religion, & New Balance to name a few.

You can see me in movies such as “Couples Retreat” and “Caught in the Crossfire.” I have also landed roles in television series such as, “How I Met Your Mother,” “Franklin and Bash,” “Rules of Engagement” and HBO’s “Hello Ladies.” Recently, I hosted Esquire Network’s ‘Women We Love’ television show & I’m currently the face of Nike’s 2014 swimwear campaign.

I’m also a partner in a new swim line called Lézard Swim that just launched at SwimWeek in Miami. Their Instagram is @lezardswim. Pre-orders will be available next month on www.lezardswim.com for Resort 2015 Collection.

| Quick, skinny tip? |

I avoid dairy & gluten as much as possible. It really helps with overall bloating and flattens my stomach. Also, you can never have too much water so I aim for three liters a day.

| Weekly workout schedule? |

Two to three days a week I do yoga, paddle boarding, hiking, & Pilates. I focus on my core and backside the most. Generally, I do more cardio than strength training so I look lean for my job.

| Favorite healthy tip |

I have been obsessed with Kombucha for eight years. It is a fermented tea that is full of probiotics & B Vitamins. It detoxes my body and makes my skin glow. When I am not traveling for work, I brew Kombucha tea at home.

| Cocktail of choice? |

Anything with tequila! When it comes to cocktails, I skip the sugary mixes and fruit juices. Sugar is what leads me to hating myself the next day. Sugar hangovers are the worst!

| To die for beauty product? |

Psssssst! It’s a cheap dry shampoo that has been around for decades. It helps combat oily hair in between washes & seriously saves my life.

| Secret model tip? |

Exfoliate! Korean day spas have the best full body scrubs imaginable. Your skin looks and feels incredible after a scrub. And watching how much dead skin comes off is grossly entertaining.

| Natural beauty tip? |

I use baby oil on my eyelashes to remove makeup and nourish them. I get tons of compliments on my eyelashes so I think it really works!

| When I wake up I… |

I lay in bed for fifteen to twenty minutes listening to music, this ensures that I don’t fall back asleep right away. Then, it’s coffee & shower time!

| WTF’s in your purse? |

I purposely have been carrying a smaller handbag to reduce the amount of unnecessary stuff that builds up, but you are always bound to find packets of Stevia sweetener, Wellness Formula vitamins, lip gloss, a mini Kai body lotion, two packs of gum, & my car keys ( if I’m lucky ).

| Styles you’re loving lately? |

1.} Full Bloom Sweater by LOVER

2.} Carnation Dress by Reformation

3.} San Pedro Mini Dress by For Love & Lemons (( <<< on sale!! ))

4.} Lézard Swim bikinis ( which will be out in 2015 )

5.} Snakeskin & leather ankle-Strap sandals by Chloé

| Quick, easy recipe? |

I make a ‘Gluten-Free Vegan Brownie Soufflé’, invented by yours truly.

I substitute vegan butter, organic egg replacement, & brown rice flour. Pour the batter into a round glass bowl for a gooey center surrounded by brownie. It’s delicious and guilt free!

    She is my favorite daughter!
    (by the way, I was addicted to PSSSSST and baby oil since the ’70’s!)
    But, she got me addicted to Kombucha!
