Hi Narvie, thank you so much for sitting down with us again. For folks who might have missed our initial interview, can you start by briefly introducing yourself?
I am Narvie and I enjoy creating digital content and marketing on social media. I write and drive a van with a pig in tow. We did travel with my dog Tiki, but she has passed away.
How did you end up traveling in a van with a piglet?
I have always wanted a pig. I researched and was lucky enough to come across a lady who needed to find a home for a piglet. Fast forward to present day and Pumba Sunflower, the piglet, makes an amazing travel buddy. He is easier on the road than my dog Tiki. He has done multiple cross-country trips in our van. He enjoys beaches and certain National Parks.
Any exciting projects or news to share?
Currently, I am in the running to be on the Cover of Maxim Magazine. I have made it to the third round. May 20th will be an important date for everyone to vote.
I am crazy excited about this opportunity because I never would have thought to put myself out there to compete for a magazine cover. I then made up my mind that I’ll never get an opportunity like this again and I am confident that I would rock it, if I took it seriously but had fun with it also.

I have also launched male swim in my swim line. It can be found on www.bronzehippie.com
Update: I placed 3rd in the quarter-finals of the Maxim Covergirl Competition.
Pumba, my boyfriend and I will be heading to California soon for Pumba’s first huge break into television. Can’t release any other information at this time. Stay tuned
What challenges are you currently facing and how are you overcoming them?
This time of the year is tough for me. My mental health has been taking a toll. I have made healthy adjustments. Working out more, drinking more water and eating clean.
What is your next adventure?
I had planned to travel to Utah but was unable to due to a finger injury. My next adventure is winning the cover of Maxim. Would be completely insane and probably the coolest thing that has ever happened to me.
Update: Now my next adventure is taking Pumba to California for a new television show.
What will you do if you win Maxim Cover girl?
First I would take a few people, my dog and pig on a yacht ride in Miami. I would invest in my brand in order to further bring awareness to depression and other mental health issues.
It was so great to reconnect. One last question – how can our readers connect with you, learn more or support you?
