I’m a really big fan of transparent clothing — but not in a trashy way! I love delicate fabric and when a fabric is delicate it's usually light-weight and sheer. I’ve just counted 10 pieces in my wardrobe that are purposely sheer, and 10 that by boyfriend often tells me he can see right through if I wear them during the day - I even do transparent accidentally...Read More
Australian Fashion Blog: Not a Model - Killer Wardrobe!
Which side is high-end make up and which is drugstore makeup?
So many of you have emailed me and left comments on my videos asking me to use some more cheap makeup brands in my beauty tutorials. I know that I tend to use quite expensive makeup in my videos and this is because makeup is SO expensive in Australia, so when I travel to the US I usually stock up on all my favourite makeup — as brands like MAC are half the price overseas!Read More
I recently posted some tips to wearing a horizontal stripe dress, and in that post I mentioned that horizontal stripes are safer and more flattering compared to vertical stripes, which got me on the hunt to find the perfect vertical stripe dress.
I think the fashion gods were on my side last weekend, I found this dress as soon as I started shopping so I was very happy and even came home with a new pair of shoes which I am also wearing in this outfit post.Read More
Last Thursday night I had the pleasure of attending the David Jones United States of Style event, where we journeyed across America in fashion wanderlust to celebrate some of the most iconic American brands.
From East Coast to West, we immersed in the all American fashion dream, marvelling at some young American brands that we have grown to love (and not sure how we ever lived without) like Rag & Bone and Jbrand, to the originals like Tommy Hilfiger and Levis (who have never let us down)...Read More
Recently I’ve received a few emails asking to see me use some Cheap Makeup Brands in my beauty tutorials as a lot of the products that I have been using in my videos are quite high end brands, like Chanel, Dior and MAC.
And there is a reason as to why I use more high end products than Cheap Makeup Brands; in Australia brands like MAC are really expensive. To give you an idea, a MAC Lipglass here is $35 and in the US its $15 that’s more than double the price so I like to stock up on all my products when I visit the states...Read More
Ever see an outrageous yet amazing outfit that you just can’t get off your mind?
Story. of. my. life!
I saw this little tweed suit whilst on my way to lunch in Double Bay last week, I did a double take at the window (just like in Midnight Blue Serendipity) and then immediately went back to the store after lunch to get it because I could not stop thinking about it - another story of my life!Read More
So many of you have commented on my skin and how flawless it is, thank you. I do spend a lot of time and money on it so I’m glad you all notice. I do two things to make my skin look it’s absolute best; one is my skincare routine (which I will be doing a video on very soon) and the other is with the foundation I use, so today I have filmed a video of my flawless foundation routine for you...Read More
I personally love stripes, I’m a huge lover of the classic French sailor tee but I think a lot of women are afraid to wear stripes as they can sometimes be too loud and even unflattering - especially if they are vertical and wide apart! This horizontal stripe dress I’m wearing today is loud and the split also makes it a little sexy, but what is most flattering about it is...Read More
The aim of Not a Model is to help you get out the door everyday feeling amazing and looking impeccable. And to help you do just that I put together a quick ‘beauty express’ video where I share some of my best beauty hacks and makeup tricks...Read More
It's cold, but the sun is out and there isn't a cloud in the sky. Typical winter day in Sydney. If you stand in the sun for long enough sipping on a green juice with a coconut lip balm really close to your nose it will feel like summer for just a second...Read More
I know you are all super busy! Some of you are mothers who struggle to squeeze in putting on lipstick, some of you students that are juggling both studying and working and some of you manage to squeeze in a workout every morning so getting runway ready is something you need to get done fast!Read More
Come winter I am all about staples, I think it's because I often fall in love with big jumpers that I just want to wear all the time. And also, jeans, every girl understands that when you have a pair of amazing jeans then you will wear them until they start to fall apart...Read More
Do you want to know how to draw eyebrows in perfectly? I bet you do!
I have had so many of you comment on how much you love my eyebrows on Facebook and Instagram, and I know I’ve spoken to some of you about how to draw eyebrows in and what products and tools I use, so I wanted to make a video today so you can actually see me do it...Read More
Tonight I am heading out for cocktails and maybe some dancing with my girlfriends and as I’m going to be doing a really dramatic black smokey eye look I thought I would film a video of it for you. Hope you like it...Read More
It was a long day today - I had back to back meetings in the morning, then had a lunch with some friends and one more meeting afterwards so wanted something comfortable but that also looked killer aka...Read More

I’ve quizzed all my guy friends and my boyfriend about the kind of makeup they like on us gals! And they all said...Read More
You’ve probably seen some of my corporate office outfits and today I just wanted to show you how to do professional looking makeup for work. This look is really natural and doesn’t take too long to do, and it’s even perfect for a job interview.
I know for me when I used to work in an office (I used to be an Event Manager, but I’ll tell you about that another time!), I used to...Read More
Like me, I’m sure you are a busy woman! And it can be hard trying to squeeze in time to get your nails done at a salon. Which is why I’m all for DIY gel nails! I can do them whenever and wherever I want - usually it’s really late at night because I always seem to leave it to the last minute. And what’s best is that unlike normal nail polish, you don’t have to worry about being helpless while it’s drying.
It doesn’t even take long to do; I’ve got it down to about...Read More
A few weeks ago I sent out an email out to you all asking what your biggest beauty problem was. Dark rings under eyes was one of the most popular things you all struggle with and many of you have this problem on a daily basis.
Having dark circles around my eyes isn’t something that is a huge problem for me, simple concealer is usually enough to cover up the natural darkness under my eyes but if I haven’t been keeping up my regular fitness routine, getting enough...Read More
