When the team at Monica Vinader contacted me to be the face of their Winter 2013 campaign, I literally jumped at the chance.  What girl doesn’t want the chance to spend the day dripping in diamonds and beautiful jewels?!  I love Monica’s jewelery and have been giving her colorful gold friendship bracelets to my friends as gifts for years.  It makes me feel close to them when I wear mine, as we all live on opposites of the world… now I have something to gift myself this Christmas.

Take a look at the shoot and campaign film below.  I have also attached some images from the incredibly chic launch party that was hosted by the divine Caroline Issa who was a vision in Red!

 I am SO excited to share with you my collaborations with TRESemme haircare as one of their new faces and Style Insiders featured in this month’s US Vogue.

I flew to NY back in July to shoot the campaign for TRESemme and to film some video which was very super exciting as I learnt a lot about getting the perfect beachy wave even when I am miles away from any sign of waves!

Check out this video below to see how to get the ultimate beach curl and also to see behind the scenes from our photo shoot.

The second part of this collaboration was as TRESemme’s Style Insider to chase down some of the hottest hair trends at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week on the street.  I found so many incredible hair trends from SERIOUS Hair Bling to versatile ponytails; bobs and bangs (fringes); and braids, braids, everywhere!  You can see all my videos on the TRESemme Youtube Channel. 

Although as you have probably guessed, my favourite trend this season is curls!  Now the question is: Do girls with curls have more fun?

Check out the video below .


Thanks so much to the entire team at TRESemme for having me on this incredibly fun project! x
