The news I had been holding onto to for just over a month was finally released last Monday and is now on newsstands throughout Australia. I was so excited I could have burst into a million pieces when I heard that I was going to be in Cleo and holding onto this news was one of the hardest things I've done in a while!
You can find me in the December issue of Cleo which is on new stands all over Australia right now. If you can't get a copy please feel free to contact me and I'm sure we can work something out. This is a huge step for curvy women all over the world!

This is a huge step for mainstream media and for Cleo. Not only did they feature myself a size 14/16 curvy women as their first female centrefold but I'm also tattooed and no your usual 'standard' model.
There is no photoshop or editing on any of these images. We submitted the raw images, straight from the camera and this is what they published. I can't hide anything!

The response was overwhelming and amazing, so much positivity and support. I can't even begin to thank everyone who gave me well wishes, compliments and who send me the most inspiring and amazing emails. Sadly Facebook took these images down and banned me but I will leave them here for anyone who wishes to see them.
I'm not a 'real woman' I'm just a woman. We call come in different sizes and shapes, some naturally thin others naturally bigger. We are all real and we are all amazing.
