Hold the Glamour

I am a full-figure model and working mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, a friend. I am a Leo. I am a first-generation Aussie and mother to two amazing little native New Yorkers. I believe that fashion is important—but so is real life. I believe that all women are beautiful and strong. I believe in working hard and loving harder. I believe in eating delicious food and drink with close friends, in breathing deep the air of new places, in laughing until you cry. I believe that when our bodies and minds are healthy and balanced, anything is possible.

All in a New York day

Yesterday I went and had my hair highlighted and cut at Cutler salon on 57th Street in New York City with my hair angels, Ben Stewart and Jenny Balding.

It feels really good to have your hair done as far as I’m concerned. Hair can make all the difference with one’s appearance — if your hair is fabulous then a lot of other things can be forgiven and go unnoticed.

I also did a little shopping for my lips at MAC Cosmetics (they have good pigments for lips, cheeks and eyes). I needed some new nude/neutral lipsticks so MAC was a good place to start as any.

I purchased three shades of nude in Twig (my sister’s everyday favourite), Modesty and Viva Glam V. I’ve used Twig before and really like it so I’m excited to test out my two new shades.

After that, I popped in to see my agents to say hello and to discuss the bookings I have coming up around the globe. The office in Chelsea is light and bright. I love the location too – it’s central to all in Manhattan and Chelsea is a fantastic neighbourhood.

Next stop for me this week is Philadelphia and Chicago — homeward bound to pack my bags.

Mascara madness

You might know me well enough by now to know that I LOVE a great mascara. It opens up and frames your eye beautifully and every women should invest in a great eyelash curler and mascara. That is my humble opinion.

Well, I found myself a new one today. Whilst on a shoot, the hair & make-up artist pulled out a brand new mascara and I loved it! It’s by Maybelline New York and it’s called “The Falsies Volum’ Express”. It’s a purple/magenta colour with light blue writing on it. Please see the link below for more details. It’s not new to Maybelline however, it was new to me. It gives good lash.
