I could be a model but instead....


Ad: Portmans
 My Dress: ASOS

I could have been a model but instead I went to Uni, became a nurse and now look after sick babies every day!

I was contacted last month but the fabulous Beth from Beth's style quest to join in on her monthly link up 'I could be a model but instead...' The idea behind the linkky is that Beth posts a current advertisement picture (like this one from Portmans) and we try and recreate it- showing that all women are beautiful!

It was great fun trying to recreate this photo- and it was also super challenging. I'm honoured that Beth thought of me for her first link-in and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next! As a side note, I find it extremely hard to look serious and pouty without feeling stupid lol, and that wind! Took us forever to get this right! ;)


Check out Beth and Sarah for their recreations and join in with us! In the mean time-  finish this sentence for me ' I could have been a model but instead....'

  6. I feel silly when im being pouty too! The trick is to try and "smile with your eyes" like Tyra says. You look so gorgeous in this picture, girl!

  11. Wow!!! you did an awesome job - right down to the hair blowing in the wind!! you look beautiful and I am glad to know I'm not the only person who finds it hard to be serious/pouty/intense in photos. My natural expression is a big cheesy smile - I find it so hard not to smile in pics!
