Step outside your comfort zone

It’s a Delicious Decision to step outside your comfort zone and try new things.

The nerves, the self-doubt and the ‘don’t be so ridiculous’ kicked in recently when I modelled in a retro fashion parade at the Milford Shopping Centre here on the North Shore of Auckland.

Me and modelling equates to ‘never, not and no’ in my life code so what a perfect opportunity to push myself out of my comfort zone and conquer something that I’ll never do again.

However, I love retro and I just happen to have a few pieces that deserve to see the light of day.

The experience didn’t hurt me at all, it was like my ‘mini-Everest’ but no preparation or vertigo involved.

After I completed the mission I felt great, mostly due to the having interactions I had with the other models who were there for similar reasons; to showcase their lovely clothing and to have fun! Also big thanks to organiser and compere  of ‘Glamour on the Green’, the very creative and clever Monique Bradley!

A conversation with a lovely lady who is currently going through chemotherapy and had decided that she’d model both her gorgeous retro outfit and her new wig was humbling and taught me something for sure.

The event was all about community, connection and collaboration — my favourite things!



It  was certainly a delicious decision!
