17 Sep NYFW Travel Diary
3 Weeks in NYC and its been REAL!!! I’ve burnt the candle from both ends so to speak… I’ve ridden bikes till my legs ached, walked till my feet ached and eaten burgers (shake shack in particular) until my stomach ached and its all been amazing!!!
It really is the city that never sleeps. I was doing make-up all day, having dinners at 11pm and going to bed after 1am which is all completely normal to New Yorkers but makes my usual Sydney sleeping and life habits seem pretty nanna-ish …
I did some serious celebrity shoulder-brushing all the while trying to remain calm and not go fan-girl crazy, particularly with Alexa Chung, Tyson Beckford, Karlie Kloss, Serena Williams and Drake (yes they are an item!) Gigi Hadid, Jonah Hill and Kendall Jenner.
And so I’m sitting in JFK waiting to board my flight home feeling a bit fatter, a bit exhausted, a bit sleep deprived but also a bit sad I’m leaving.
New York I loved every minute of you!!!
My NYC experience involved hair care brand Tresemme. The brand got me amazing opportunities to go backstage, interview some amazing talent and hang out with Aussie beauty Britt Beattie, winner of Australia’s Next Top Model. I can’t wait to shoot Britt for Oz Beauty Expert when we’re back in Sydney. I had access to a 24/7 styling studio, where I could get my hair styled by the Tresemme team any time I liked. It was also conveniently located right outside my hotel. I don’t think I styled my hair myself once in the last week!
I’ve put together a little photo diary of my travels in New York with Tresemme.
Preparing for shoots with my team.

Lounging by my amazing rooftop pool.
I took a break in upstate New York to hang by the pool and escape the city heat.
Freshly done hair!
I spent quite a lot of time exploring Central Park. It’s a beautiful part of the city.
Checking to see if I knew any of the models in the Tresemme BCBG show.
Karlie Kloss!!! Her hair was being done by the Tresemme team.
Selfies in the mirror at the studio.
Herve Leger outfit. I couldn’t bear the thought of heels on this day.
Just one of the many reasons I’m feeling rather fat.
I saw this palette backstage at the Herve Leger show….. Wow! I need this.
