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.

Who in the world doesn’t love SPANX?

A few days ago I saw an interview with Sara Blakely — what an amazing inventor, creator and godsend to women and men around the world she is. I love her!

Sara Blakely is the woman who founded the mega brand SPANX that can be purchased or sent to most countries around the world.

What celebrity hasn’t worn SPANX? They flash each other and share with us, their SPANX undergarment love affair like it’s a piece of jewelry.

I have them and I love wearing my SPANX under dresses and skirts especially — even for work I get my SPANX on.

SPANX has a huge range of body shapers, bras, panties, leg wear, apparel, swim, active wear and there’s even SPANX for men.

What an incredible story Sara has. See the link below for more details and information.


What I love most about Sara Blakely is the fact she gives back to women through her own foundation. ‘She signed “The Giving Pledge”, giving half her wealth away to charities that focus on empowering women’.

This is phenomenal in my book. What an inspiring women indeed to share her wealth and knowledge with other women who are struggling and trying to make something of themselves. I love that Sara is giving back — that she is able and willing to do so makes her a superstar in my book. See more below –

Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

My family and I recently arrived in Sydney, Australia. So far it has been a relaxing time spent with family and friends. It’s been a while since Steve and the kids were here so everyone wants to see them and see how our children have grown.

I start shooting for Sara by Ezibuy in a matter of days so prior to leaving New York, I made sure I purchased a new bottle of my favourite foundation I’ve been using for over six years. Armani Luminous Silk Foundation gives me the coverage I need whilst feeling light and looking smooth and natural on my face.


I have had many different brands and products applied to my face over the course of my career and no foundation in my opinion, comes close to Armani. I buy my own and have the make-up artist apply it for each and every job. Most of them are happy to use my personal foundation, if they don’t already use Armani themselves.

Make sure when you buy any foundation for the first time, you have a consultant assist you. Getting the right shade is very important for a colour match that you want to look natural. A good guide is to apply your foundation on the inside of your arm or wrist. The colour or shade you see the least, is generally the right one for you.
