Hi everyone!

Today I have some really exciting news that I have been dying to tell you all, and now I finally can!! 

Some of you may know that earlier this year I entered Girlfriend Magazine’s Rimmel Beauty Insider competition, and after weeks of keeping everything hush hush, I can finally reveal that… 

I’m the Rimmel Beauty Insider for 2012!!! 

Thank you SO much to everyone who supported me and wished me luck – you guys are the best and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart! 

It has been so hard keeping it a secret when I’ve been wanting to shout it from rooftops, so being able to finally tell you guys is such a great feeling. 

A while back I was flown up to Sydney to film five Rimmel Beauty Insider How-To videos, and it was an amazing day where I was able to interview one of Rimmel London’s top makeup artists, meet the gorgeous winner of the Girlfriend Model Search Grace, and GF mag’s beauty editor! The videos should be up on the Rimmel London Australia Facebook page pretty soon, so keep your eyes out for that! 

And to now see my face in a magazine - it's so surreal!!!

Behind the scenes of the video shoot - videos will be up soon on the Rimmel London AU Facebook page!
All in all, I feel so blessed to be chosen – I want to write in magazines as a career, and now to be able to have my very own beauty column in Girlfriend Magazine for a year is such a dream come true! 

Thank you, thank you, thank you, to all of you who supported me, I love you all so much!!
