Ask Me : Your Questions, My Answers

20140502-203807.jpg

I’ve opened up the doors to you, and answered some of your questions. There’s a collection of queries from Instagram, Twitter and Facebook (go easy on the marriage proposals.. There were quite a few!) and here we are.

If you’ve got more, tweet me! Or comment on my Instagram or Facebook posts. It’s easy!

What’s the biggest obstacle you’ve had to overcome getting into the modelling world?
– @mattsch87, Instagram

The biggest obstacle in modelling for me (and I speak for so many others too!) would have to be obtaining and maintaining self confidence. In an industry where what you are – physically, not mentally – is what makes you money, it can be very tough. Knowing that you are enough for anything in life, let alone a job that requires you to look, act and perform a certain way, is only half the job. It’s a tough little place! Having the confidence to shoot lingerie in a room full of people you’ve never met, and pull poses you’ve never done (and generally fumble your clumsy way through everything) ain’t the walk in the park people make modelling out to be. You’ve got to learn to bluff, stand tall and literally ‘fake it till you make it’ – and by Lordy is it harder than it looks!

How cool is it to hang out with a V8 Supercar Driver?
– @brett_parsonage, Twitter

Well Brett, hanging out with a V8 driver can have it’s pros and cons. Pro’s? They’re pretty fun, they have a fair bit of spare time to do fun activities during their days off, they understand your lifestyle and what you might be going through, and they usually bring their partners – who are just as cool. Cons? Generally, most chat is about cars. Lots of cars. Fast cars. Their cars. Race cars. Someone else’s car. Everyone else’s car. ANY car. You get my point… Not the entire conversation, but on many occasions I may have been the only girl at a table of gents, and I can personally guarantee you, cars – and anything to do with them – is a hot topic. Don’t get me wrong, there is absolutely no resentment, but after five zillion car conversations, I’m done talking about cars… Anyone for a cocktail?!

What do you like most about Fabian?
– @axalotyls, twitter

Fabian’s best trait is by far his support. I could literally do anything I wanted to, and he would be there 110%. With everything I do or want, or places I want to go or see, or any crazy business ventures I’m thinking of going for, and he is always there. And when my day is going pear shaped, (it’s going to get cheesy, lookout!) he is always up for a hug, and tell me it’s going to be alright. He’s like my knight in shining armour, just minus the horse and the armour, and replace it with a car and a onesie race suit. I mean, what’s not to love about a man in a onesie?

What’s your best beauty tip?
– @LaurenDayMakeup, Instagram

My best and most favourite beauty tip is facial moisture spray! Apart from the usual: drink more water, get more sleep, ect ect. With all the travel and time spent in airplanes, my skin is always dry and horrid for a few days after. I always drink a glass of water when I’m on board, and spray my face. My favourite is from The Body Shop, the Vitamin E Face Mist is a total love of mine, and I promise you’ll love it too. Never fails me! That, some lip balm and hand moisturiser, and I’m good to go!

What is it like being a Veve Dream Girl?
– Brianna Abdoo, Facebook

Simply, it’s amazing! The support that Vanessa from Veve Glamour Swimwear provides is endless, and she’s always trying to help you, no matter what you’re doing. Plus, when you do a campaign, the photos are fantastic and edgy, and nothing like a boring swimwear campaign. Plus, throw in a few free pairs of bikinis every year and I’ll never have a dull swimsuit again! There’s always a new style, a new design and another bikini you’ve ‘just got to have.’ Veve for me, was a breakthrough career move. I am super excited to be part of the family, and still have plenty more to give. I love my Veve family!

  • @BioOilAustralia has been there for me from the start - when I was a teenager and I acquired my first lot of stretch marks. And here we are again in full swing with these twinnies to help improve the appearance of those extra marks and make me feel like ‘me’ again. I just apply twice a day, morning and night, and it only takes two minutes, so I get more time with my little mate Carter. Those chubby cheeks get me every time! #BioOilTwiceDaily #Collab #BioOilPartnership
  • My beautiful girl, Kennie Rae 💕 
#CoulthardAndCo
  • It’s fair to say it’s been a mighty big weekend here in the #CoulthardAndCo household... @biozetattack gave me such an incredible (and terrifying!) opportunity to come along on their #BiozetAttackBrigade campaign at @toughmudderaustralia .. oh my goodness!! SO many thoughts about this and surprisingly I didn’t suck (or die!) at it! As you can see, I’m fairly excited about my new laundry additions and I had a blast shooting this campaign in own laundry, which is where I spend most of my life these days.. haha!! Oh the irony. Anyway, I was impressed with the results from my laundry loads (not so much my Tough Mudder injuries - swipe right!) but my crew on the day made it SO much fun! So many more pictures to come this week... there was no escaping that mud! 
PS. Anyone know a great massage place on the coast?? I’m in desperate need over here.. So sore. 😂😜 PPS. Congratulations @fabiancoulthard !! SO proud of you. Winner winner 🍾🏆👌🏼 #FabPack

  • My FIRST Mother’s Day 💝
How special is today? So magical 💫 
The meaning of this day has changed for me so much this year. Being a mother is so special and such a privilege. ‘WHAT DOES MOTHERHOOD MEAN TO YOU?’ It’s a question I asked in my stories yesterday and I had literally hundreds of replies from so many of you. Thank you for sharing with me your beautiful answers. How lucky am I to share this time with my family, as well as with all of you? If you didn’t already answer, what does it mean to you? I’ve written a BLOG post about it too, and included a little story and some beautiful images of my tribe too. So chuffed to have a day like today to celebrate with you this incredible life purpose and journey. Let’s hear it for our mums! 💝 #CoulthardAndCo
  • So from what feels like a lifetime ago, I used to model. Day in, day out, I would work out, go for a run, eat when ever I wanted (and what ever.. ahh metabolism!), have my make up and hair done, outfits given to me and I would pose from dawn until dusk and have beautiful and effortless photos flooding my inbox on the daily. So yes, a lifetime ago, this would have been a quick two-second snap at the end of my day.. not any more folks! This was done at about 10 at night, I had something on that day and left over make up. All the daily chores were done, kids in bed, dog fed and I thought, ‘I should probably get a photo for once.’ So, here you go, instagram. Here’s my ‘end of day’ EFFORTLESS photo for you. Haha, I am funny... I don’t think I did too bad, do you? 😂 *also, if you watch my stories you’d have noticed I had my brows microbladed last week. Thank you @mimsybeauty I’m in LOVE!! Get to see her girls, you won’t be disappointed 😘🖤 #BeckyLamb #CoulthardAndCo
  • Kennie knows how to make me smile! Now that I’m a Mum, I find my time being consumed more and more by this little cheeky grin and dressing her in the cutest outfits I can find.. but I still need ‘me time’ and I am always after those products that will get this bod looking and feeling its best. @BioOilAustralia gives me the control back and helps improve the appearance of my stretch marks in just two minutes a day. It lets me feel like me again with smooth and soft skin.  #BioOilTwiceDaily #Collab #BioOilPartnership
  • THIS IS NOT A DRILL. It’s actually just a little reindeer named Carter... I’ve given him a cuteness rating of 9.7/10 😂 This little guy is my happy baby, always giggling, looking around and keeping me on my toes. He’s a typical boy - easily distracted, needs constant stimulation and knows how to make his Mama’s heart melt..! Like this.. haha! He was born a little 4’10 and he was such a little fighter from the moment he arrived. Always being smaller than his sister, I think he has a point to prove. We love you little guy, - the biggest, sweetest, curious little character I’ve had the pleasure of meeting 💙 @cartercoulthard #coulthardandco
  • Mackenzie Rae Coulthard. Kennie. Kennie Ken Ken. Little Kennie Wennie. Grumpy Ken. (The last one is my favourite!). I wonder if she knows how loved she really is. Do any of us? Probably not. This little princess was sleeping through well before her brother, and she has only ever woken us up once (Her brother would wake us and we would just feed her at the same time). If you’ve ever wondered what the textbook baby looked like, here she is. Always patient, so observant and only cries when there is a genuine problem. I think she has experienced life before now, she’s been here before. If this was your first and only baby, you’d definitely be going back for more 😂 
I also love dressing her in girly outfits.. this bow is so cute too. Courtesy of @blondesinbows 💕
I’ve been thinking of writing letters to my children.. have you done this? What are your tips to doing so? Are there any sets I can buy to make it easier? 
Also thinking of posting photos of these two on their own accounts.. what do you think? #CoulthardAndCo
