Westfield Model for a night 28/10/11 - yes me!

I won a Facebook competition to be a model in a Westfiled Styling Session at Westfield Plenty Valley on Friday 28 October 2011.

I arrived at Westfield at 4.30pm and was escorted by Westfield Management to Hairhouse Warehouse to get my hair done.  Here are pics of my hair styling session.

Hair is all done and I am LOVING my new look already!  I have never had my hair curled but I am totally into it.  Westfield Management then escorted me to Beauty On Earth to get my make up done.  I normally don't wear make up often so i was a little worried about how this would go...

Wow I have never worn so much make up!  It's a bit on the heavy side but I am loving my eyes and lipstick.  I am escorted back to Centre Management and given my outfit for the night "Outfit 7".  The outfit originally came with flat shoes but they were upgrades to platform wedges as my dress was too long for me!  Here are pics at Centre Management before the show.

A maxi dress is not something that I would usually wear, but hey, I think it looked good.  Time to make our way to the backstage area.  It was so embarrassing walking through the shopping centre all dressed up but it was also VERY exciting.  Alyce Cowell hosted the styling session and showed the audience how to change five daytime looks into night time looks by only changing one or two items.  Then it was my turn to shine.  Alyce called me up, talked everyone through my outfit and why this look works.  This is how it went.

So there you have it.  I was a Westfield Model for a night.  It was an AMAZING EXPERIENCE.  I felt gorgeous and confident.  I wasn't shy at all.  I just wanted to scream with excitement!  I have had a pretty tough week coming to terms with injuries that have made me stop training altogether for a few weeks.  This night was exactly what I needed to pick me back up and make me feel fantastic.

A huge thanks to Westfield Plenty Valley staff, the stylist on the night and Alyce.  Alyce is just amazing.  She is such a lovely person and a wonderful host :)  She made me feel very welcome and special.
