Source : Canberra TimesHi, my name's Bree. I'm 39 and I'm a size 18 mum from Queanbeyan. But I'm not a model. Sadly, you won't be seeing me on the Fashfest catwalk this year. I had an incredible day auditioning for Canberra's answer to fashion week a few months ago, but it turns out I need some more modelling experience to be selected in a lineup for the runway.

Harlotte Cosmetics flew a team of eight make-up artists over from Australia to demonstrate the beauty and artistry of the Harlotte products on Fiji’s top models to get them runway-ready over the three-night event.

Unfortunately, in terms of my uni calendar, the FASHFEST model casting could not have come at a worse time. So, instead of joining the throngs of photographers and media at the casting catwalk, I was stuck at my desk with a mountain of textbooks and a huge case of FOMO.

Since my story on my Fashfest audition went live last Sunday, I've had text messages, emails and a lot of love on social media.

It was not the paralysing sort of nervous that usually has me curled up in a ball on my lounge watching re-runs on Netflix to distract myself. No, this was the frenetic sort of nervous.

I have a belly that never really left after my second child was born a decade ago, and a bum my family lovingly refers to as 'the shelf' (because you literally could sit your dinner on it).
