Walking the Runway

This past weekend I took a huge leap and modeled in my first fashion show.  It was the Red Dress Fashion Show for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.  Thankfully all the models were just regular women, none of us were pros, with one thing in common: we have all been touched by heart disease and stroke.  When I was in grade 8, my mum survived a heart attack.  Then when I was 19, my dad died of a heart attack at the age of 57.  I've always wanted to work with the Heart and Stroke Foundation and so I jumped at the chance!  As nervous as I was to get up on that runway, it was well worth it!  
Here's a short vlog from the event:



Before the event started I was interviewed to talk about my connection to the cause:


Quite often we take care of everyone else around us and forget to be kind to ourselves.  I know I am guilty of this and I think it's a great thing to remember.   Take care of yourself and your health and listen to your body. oxoxo
