Australia's Next Top Model

Last night was the final of Australia's Next Top Model with three of the girls battling it out for final place (and yes this show for the past how ever many weeks has been my version of a chocolate addiction)
The three girls were Kelsey, Amanda and Sophie, all gorgeous girls.

Kelsey was my favourite to win. Even though she is a little short side for the modelling industry, she pulled off the most amazing photos throughout the cycle being one of the strong favourites throughout the show. She knew how to work her body, angle it to make her appear taller and work the light on her face. Even though Kelsey came second I do hope that her modelling career does take off.

Here are some of Kelsey's photos from the show...

Amanda was the winner (eventually) from cycle 6. After an embarrassing mishap where Sarah Murdoch was told that Kelsey was the winner, then only to discover several minutes later it was actually Amanda. Kelsey totally understood the mistake and took it all with absolute grace. In the end as compensation, she too got a $25,000 prize money, an all expenses paid trip to New York and her cover is also getting published for Harpers Bazaar along with Amanda's.

So back to Amanda.
She is just stunning and ticks all the boxes to be a model. A fantastic face and bone structor, a body to die for and not to mention she has the height.
She took a number of knocks throughout due to her not knowing how to work or move her body and not being able to relax her mouth.
However after some practice and words of wisdom from the judges she pulled out some outstanding shots and which led her to win the competition.

Sophie Van Den Akker also went through to the live final along with Kelsey and Amanda as the judges the week before couldn't decided who to send home and would leave it up to the general public to vote.
Sophie came into the competition and was instantly labelled the 'Paris Hilton' or 'Barbie' wannabe. She has a bone structor like no other, an amazing body but she also covered her face in think make-up, white pale lips and awful bleached blonde hair with the worst extensions. The transformation from Barbie to now was a tough one though. She didn't like her hair being dyed darker, then cut, and then cut even shorter again.
But with the new short hair look her photos were killer and in the words of Alex Perry...expensive. She also knew how to work her face, jaw line from the new hair and her eyes would show so much emotion.
I think out of al the girls Sophie went through the biggest transformation looks and attitude wise. Take a look....

Eco warrior

I am LOVING this idea of the Green Box. This New York based company ECO (Environmentally Conscious Organisation) think up ways of saving and improving food packaging so that it's safe for the environment and cost effective.

It is true that once you have devoured your scrummy pizza you are left with this ridiculous square box clogging up your bin or recycling and this is where Eco Green box would come in.

Take a look for yourself and tell me you don't think that this is a genius idea.

Running by.

Today, the 19th September hosted for run's in Sydney. The Sydney Marathon, the half marathon, the 9k Bridge run (which I did) and the family fun run.
We all met over in Milson's Point and got into our groups. I was with my boyfriend and his cousins. 9.15am came and off we went, with the boys racing ahead of me. I was adamant I would stick to my own pace and battle it by myself.
Running up over the Harbour Bridge was amazing. Seeing all these people running through which is normally dominated by cars. Once you get over the bridge you then run down and around past the Domain and through to the Botanic Gardens.

I'm not a natural born runner, so did find some bits challenging but just had to push through it. Not the easiest thing when you have little seven year olds racing past you with their parents. You then go down and around to Mrs MacQuarie's chair and back onto the way you ran in. The hill was a killer but helped knowing that there was a drinks station just over the hill. Once you get through there you pretty much are on the home straight and have no excuse to stop now. Running down with the harbour and Opera House opening up in front of you as you cross over the finish line, crowds cheering, music blaring a wave of achievement goes over you.
I found my boyfriend and his cousins who completed the race in about 45mins. I think I did it in about 70 mins. Will be checking the results and photos tomorrow.
Now for a beer, pizza and a movie!
