PAGES DIGITAL X THE GLOW

TOTAL. GIRL. POWER. 
IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE AND BREEZE COLLABORATING WITH THE EVER TALENTED KARLA MAJNARIC AND KATE FLETCHER, THE THREE OF US JOINED FORCES TO PRODUCE THIS BEAUTY EDITORIAL FOR PAGES DIGITAL, TITLED 'THE GLOW'. APTLY NAMED, I WAS COVERED IN GOLD EMULSION BEFORE DRESSING MYSELF IN SHIMMERY LOOKS, FROM THE PERFECT PARTY DRESS, TO COMFY LOUNGE JUMPER, AND THE ULTIMATE LEATHER JACKET.  I MUST GIVE AN HONOURABLE  MENTION AND THANK YOU TO SCANDIZZO SALON FOR COMPLETELY BLEACHING OUT AND THEN RETURNING MY EYEBROWS TO THEIR NATURAL STATE. IT'S NO MEAN FEAT, AND IT TAKES AN EXCEPTIONAL AMOUNT OF PATIENTS.
