Caulfield Cup Spring Racing Fashion

By Monday, October 13, 2014 No tags Permalink 1

As a David Jones ambassador I will be at their tent for this year’s Caulfield Cup Horse Races. It’s a very high end event, and I think in keeping in the tradition, it should be not too sexy. In a recent interview I gave the following advice “It’s all about keeping it classy, especially with dresses that are a good length. I think it’s all about sophisticated lines and making sure the ladies are keeping it graceful and classy.”

Typical Training Session 3 Days a Week

By Thursday, August 14, 2014 No tags Permalink 2

I do what I need to do for the modelling industry, it’s my job, but everyone has a cheat day – and I always have an egg and bacon roll on mine. I’m considered curvy in the industry, beauty comes in different shapes and sizes.

I work out three times a week and my personal trainer keeps me motivated; he makes me swing kettle bells, do resistance training and go for 5km sprints, three times a week for an hour.

Here is a typical workout with personal trainer Jordan Ponder at a park in the Sydney suburb of Rushcutters Bay.

  • Squats with weight
  • Swinging 5 kg kettle bells side to side to keep my waist in trim
  • Resistance training
  • 5km sprints
  • Warming down for 15 minutes
  • Limbering down to stretch after a session

And when it comes to my diet, it’s hot water and lemon in the morning followed by an avocado, almond milk and whey protein smoothie for breakfast, and a strong black coffee.

Sometimes I treat myself to a cooked breakfast of scrambled eggs before a lunch of chicken salad and fish and vegetables for supper. Food is enjoyable, it’s supposed to be fun, so anyone who wants to stay in shape should make sure they do it healthily.

People always ask where I got such long legs and I attribute them to my tall Chinese-born mother and my ‘hour-glass’ figure to my Portuguese-born father.

Bikini Confidence Interview on CLEO

By Tuesday, August 12, 2014 No tags Permalink 1

I was recently interviewed by Ellie McDonald for the CLEO website filled with celebrity news, health and beauty tips. Here is an excerpt from the article. You can read the entire interview by clicking here.

It’s coming into bikini season very soon. What tips would you give CLEO readers for a bit of body confidence?

“I think it’s important to exercise and just make sure that you feel good. It’s all about being comfortable in your skin, and just feeling energetic and strong. I always think it’s really great to try and eat healthily and get to the gym or go for fun – do anything that makes you feel good.”jessica-gomes-sports-illustrated-2013-04

Does this is also link with the Paleo diet you’ve been on?

“Yes! I’ve just been following Paleo – I pretty much do that 80 per cent of the time. It’s just low sugar, no dairy and lots of protein and vegies leading up to the show so I feel in tip-top shape.”

What’s the one exercise or workout you swear by?

“I would definitely say it would be cardio and weight training. I think running at an incline really helps strip away fat. And I love dancing, as well. I do a lot of Tracy Anderson aerobic exercises – they’re really, really good. My mum does Zumba, but I haven’t got there yet!”
